Well dear friends, the Grim Reaper has been at it again! And so, Mr Jim calls you all to the fireside early fora quick bonus episode to pay tribute to the great Peter Wyngarde who sadly passed away this week.
In an episode that didn't turn out so micro after all, Mr Jim Moon takes a look at the latest addition to Rebellion's Treasury of British Comics range - Faceache Vol. 1 - The First 100 Scrunges, a glorious tome collecting the gleefully gruesome adventures of the boy with the bendable bonce as chronicled by the great Ken Reid.
We all know A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and have enjoyed the eerie tales of MR James, but why is Christmas associated with the telling of ghostly tales? In this epic show, Mr Jim Moon rovers far and wide, through snowy cemeteries and Christmases Past, to trace the true history of the tradition of telling ghost stories upon a winter's night!
In this episode, Mr Jim Moon provides a hopefully illuminating commentary on the classic BBC TV adaptation of MR James's famous ghost story Oh Whistle and I'll Come To You My Lad. Directed by Dr Jonathan Miller, this short film version first screened in 1968 as part of the BBC art show Omnibus and would go one to inspire the creation of the BBC's classic annual series A Ghost Story for Christmas.
