Issue 2 Preview

Issue 2 is now out in print and available to purchase! The free download will be available next week. So in the meantime..here is a little something from Issue 2 to wet your appetite!

ALL THE
TABLOID NEWSPAPER
RUMOURS – ALL
THE TIME


Matt Smith Is Rubbish And Is Getting Sacked

Doctor Who fans have seemingly got their way. A bloke I spoke to down the pub reckons that Matt Smith will be sacked as Doctor Who, because ‘he isn’t as good as David Tennant and the geeks don’t like him’. Message Boards have been awash with calls for the actor, 16, to be booted out. I must say that I agree with them, as the internet is never wrong. Not that I steal anything off there and publish it here, mind.

Despite smashing all records for most views on the BBC IPlayer and viewing figures on BBC America, SPACE and some Australian channel (not to mention the upturn in profits of DVD’s, books and other merchandise) the interest in Doctor Who is at an all-time low and I know this because my ‘insider’ said so (well, she told my mum at the bingo anyway). Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Matt Smith nerds!


It’s not been a great week for the outgoing Time Lad, as our snappers caught him hanging outside a public lavatory this week (see above). The dirty beast!

A Postcard From Hamsterdam (FFAC9)

While the work for Issue 2 was on-going here at Fish Custard Towers, we received a postcard from columnist (and ex-Doctor Who actor) Harry Sedgewick, who went to visit the Dutch capital - 2 months ago.

Greeting’s Hoovers! (Is that the right term?)

Anyhow, I’m currently on business In Hamsterdam and I’m not really sure when I’ll get back. I’m currently a guest of the Chief at the local Regiokorpsen, here in this wonderful city.

I arrived here to do a bit of acting work/pick up something for my boss, then it all got a little bit naughty with the customs and I’m currently sharing a cell with someone called ‘Rose’. No, it’s not Catherine Tate’s character – it’s actually a big hairy fella, who can’t speak a word of English. I think he’s from Scotland. No, wait, he can’t be - he’s too gentle, especially at night.

What else have I been up to? Well, I only have to say the name ‘Hamsterdam’ and you’ll probably think I’ve been picking flowers and riding bikes. Well, I have been doing something like that, but with the local women instead. Shame I lost my wallet!

Anyway, I’ve got to go - Big Rose wants another game of Buckaroo. Just don’t ask what we’re using to play.

See you soon...hopefully!

A Bit of Benny While You Wait...

The deadline has passed and I'm busy getting Issue 2 ready, so you can treat your lovely eyes to it in the next week or two!

In the meantime, Fish Custard Towers are MASSIVE Bernice Summerfield fans and are delighted with the latest addition to the series. For those who don't know, Benny is a spin-off character from the Virgin New Adventures novels from the 90's. She's a sexy, tough and hard-drinking archaeologist from the 26th Century. So you can see why we like her. Benny went on to appear in her own book series and eventually, on audio (played by Lisa 'Cheetah Person' Bowerman). The audios have been running for well over a decade now and to celebrate the launch of Series 11, Big Finish have knocked up a 10-minute CGI short, entitled 'Dead and Buried', for you to enjoy.



The first audio in the series 'Resurrecting the Past' is available from Big Finish later this month. You can order any of the Benny back-catalogue from www.bigfinish.com/bernice-summerfield

Check back soon for more news on Issue 2!
