In My Own Words:
Well, I'm quite an introvert person at heart, but I endeavour to explore the ever-expanding world of media, the arts and the world in which we live. I have a rare immune disorder; aplastic anaemia, that nearly took my life at the age of seventeen which I still struggle with to this day, both physically and emotionally - though I am making more progress than the consultants ever imagined (apparentl… Read more

Doctor Who - The Monsters Collection: The Cybermen&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Patrick Troughton
Next to the Daleks, the Cybermen, originally created by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, have become renowned in popular culture as one of the Doctor's most terrifying and recurring foes. A recurring threat since the classic series' fourth season serial, 'The Tenth Planet', the first Cybermen hailed from Earth's twin planet Mondas, and attempted to make humanity into their cloth-faced image, with William Hartnell's First Doctor ultimately defeating them alongside companions Ben and Polly moments before his first regeneration into Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor.

Birdman & The Galaxy Trio: Complete Series [DVD] [&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Keith Andes
'Birdman & the Galaxy Trio' was the product of legendary cartoonist and comic book artist Alex Toth, in order for Hanna-Barabera to expand on its superhero line for the Saturday morning slot for kids, in response to contemporary shows like Marvel's 'The Fantastic Four' and Filmation's take on DC Comic's' Justice League (which would later be picked up by HB for its 'Super Friends' franchise).
The twenty episode series ran from September 1967 to September 1969 on NBC, with the titular character of Birdman being voiced by Keith Andes (who tragically took his own life in 2005). Birdman is in fact a man named Ray Randall who was granted solar-based powers from the Egyptian Sun-God Ra. As… Read more
