John Leeson Dog's Dinners - A Collection of Favourite Recipes (Signed)

dogs dinners.jpg

This book is a celebration of good food. It also reveals a love of cooking by an author who for many years has conducted a passionate affair with his household’s kitchen stove. No one has minded so far – not even his wife, who happily allows him to hold sway as the regular family cook.

 

This book is not a cookbook in the usual sense, rather more an assembly of best-loved recipes collected across the years from various acknowledged sources. The author is certainly not a professional cook – though at some time in the last century he won a competition run by the BBC to recreate ‘the taste of Italy’ on a plate – judged by top chef Antonio Carluccio.

 

So why ‘Dog’s Dinners’? Many will know the author as an actor simply for his role as the voice and soul of the robot ‘dog’ K9 in Doctor Who – hence the punning title; others will know John as a wine educator and wine writer. Maybe both have something of a pedigree!

 

The book is a taste-bud tickler and, who knows, it might be a spur to your own experimentation in the kitchen. So put on your apron! Arthur Daley’s immortal misquote in television’s Minder series: “The world is your lobster” is the key to it all!

 

After all, what have you got to lose?

Derrick Sherwin - Who's Next? A Memoir (Signed hardcover)

derrick sherwin.jpg

Sherwin began his career in the theatre and worked as a junior set designer, scenic artist, scene shifter, stage manager and lighting designer. Sherwin established himself as an actor in theatre, films and television.

 

While still working as an actor, Sherwin also began work as a freelance writer, contributing scripts to series such as Crossroads and Z-Cars. In 1967, Sherwin was offered a story-editing role on Doctor Who by BBC Head of Serials Shaun Sutton. He was script editor on the stories from The Web of Fear to The Mind Robber, and on the latter tale he wrote the first episode. He also wrote the script for The Invasion, which introduced the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce, having adapted the original storyline supplied by Kit Pedler.

 

In 1968/1969 Sherwin began to take a greater role in the producing side of the series and was the unofficial Assistant Producer for the rest of the series' sixth season, with Terrance Dicks succeeding him as script-editor. On The Space Pirates Sherwin briefly resumed his old role as Dicks was busy writing The War Games. Dicks has credited Sherwin with the creation of the Time Lords, who were introduced in The War Games, scripted by Dicks and Malcolm Hulke. Sherwin succeeded Peter Bryant as producer of the programme in 1969, overseeing the production of The War Games and Spearhead from Space. Sherwin was also involved with Bryant in the casting of Jon Pertwee in the lead role on the programme.

 

After Doctor Who, Sherwin was the producer on Paul Temple, The Man Outside, Ski-Boy, and The Perils of Pendragon.

Mary Tamm: Second Generation (Hardcover)

second generation new

Bradford-born Mary Tamm was already a successful actress on stage, TV and the big screen when, in 1978, she joined the cast of Doctor Who as the Time Lady, Romana, in the company of Tom Baker’s incarnation of the Doctor.

 

In 2009, her book First Generation recounted the story of her life before Who and her journey of self-discovery to her parents’ homeland of Estonia. Tantalisingly for Who fans, the book came to an end half way through Mary’s year on board the TARDIS. This new volume (written before her tragic death from cancer in 2012) picks up where First Generation ends, with the inside story of the filming of her final three Doctor Who adventures; and continues with tales of her subsequent TV work, her return to the stage, her ventures into the world of Who fandom, and the personal joy and fulfilment brought to her by the birth of her own ‘second generation’ – her daughter, Lauren.

 

Packed with incidents and anecdotes recounted with Mary’s trademark no-nonsense Northern wit, Second Generation is rounded out with tributes and reflections from some of her closest friends and colleagues, including Miriam Margolyes, Carol Royle and Steven Berkoff.

Hooded Man Volume 1: Robin of Loxley

hooded man.jpg

‘In the days of the Lion spawned of the Devil’s Brood, the Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet Herne the Hunter, Lord of the Trees, and be his son and do his bidding. The Powers of Light and Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble.’

 

With its distinctive mixture of history and mythology, Robin of Sherwood was an innovative treatment of the Robin Hood legend. Broadcast on ITV between 1984 and 1986, the series has been a major influence on later versions of the Robin Hood story.

 

Now for the first time, a guide to the series in two volumes, from its beginnings in fifteenth century ballads of Robin Hood to its modern tale of a band of guerrillas striking from their forest hideout.

 

Hooded Man Volume One takes a fresh look at each episode starring Michael Praed. It explores the production of the first two series and the legends, literature and history that influenced them. On the way you’ll find new trivia, goofs, quotes and translations, a comprehensive atlas of filming locations and the full story of the creation of the series.

 

Hooded Man is an essential guide for every true fan of the series, detailing everything you might have missed along the way… because nothing is ever forgotten.

185: Moonflesh

moonflesh.jpg

One wouldn't normally expect to find elephants, gorillas and rhinoceroses roaming free in Suffolk in the year 1911. One wouldn't normally expect to find an extra-dimensional police box at the same time/space location either. Two aliens, named the Doctor and Nyssa, exit said box, only to find themselves pursued by a hungry lioness – for they've landed in the private hunting grounds of the famous explorer Nathaniel Whitlock, who's brought together a motley group of friends and acquaintances for a weekend's shooting.

But one of Whitlock's guests isn't all they seem. One of them wants the secrets of the Moonflesh, the mystic mineral looked after by Whitlock's retainer, a Native American known as Silver Crow. Because the Moonflesh is reputed to have the power to call down spirits from another realm…

…and soon, the hunters will become the hunted.

Written By: Mark Morris
Directed By: Ken Bentley

Cast

Peter Davison (The Doctor), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Tim Bentinck (Nathaniel Whitlock), Rosanna Miles (Phoebe Whitlock), John Banks (Silver Crow), Francesca Hunt (Hannah Bartholemew), Hugh Fraser (Edwin Tremayne), Geoffrey Breton (Hector Tremayne)
