    Then Is Now Episode 101 - Judy Matheson

    On today's show, we have a special guest who is a British actress that's perhaps best known for her appearances in several horror films in the 1970s. She's still working today and has quite the impressive resume! Judy Matheson was in such films as “The Exquisite Cadaver” (1969), the Hammer Horror films “Lust for a Vampire” (1971) and “Twins of Evil” (1971), “The Flesh and Blood Show” (1972), and “The Haunting of Margam Castle” in 2020, among many others. Her extensive television work includes “Coronation Street,” “The Professionals,” “Z-Cars,” and “Blake's 7” also among so many others.
    So sit back and get ready for an interview with an amazing horror icon!

True fan

I love hearing details about all kinds of retro entertainment from time periods when there was more variety and freedom for creators. The hosts of this podcast are true fans, you can tell. They have a legitimate love for the topics they cover, and there are always some tidbits about certain scripts or actors or directors that I didn’t know! I look forward to each episode.

Mark of JC ,

New listener from North Jersey

I really look forward to hearing about movies and television shows that I greatly enjoy while learning about new gems that I’ve never heard of before. The show is well planned and executed.

Granite Gary ,

Love it!

My kids and I listen to this show! I love hearing about the stuff I grew up with and sharing it with them. It's really opened their eyes, as the show says, "to all the cool stuff they missed out on"! Keep up the great work!
