Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Anthony Dry

This guy's artwork is rather excellent, IMO. He's no amateur - he's done some work for the nuWho DVD range and DWM, amongst other things. There's a very Chris Achilleos vibe to much of his work (old skool Who fans will know what I mean) - deliberate, I assume. Given the time of year, this mock-up of a Target books cover for Doctor Who and the Christmas Invasion (over at his deviantart page) is rather appropriate, and also one of my favourites. :-)

I think that, between:

  • The book I recently bought1 2
  • The audiobook I was recently given as a Christmas present1 2 3
  • The DVD I'm going to be getting soon1 4
  • The forthcoming Dirk Maggs' radio adaptation

...the next few weeks are probably going to revolve to some extent around London Below.

(I regard this as a Good Thing.)

(Caveat: I'm not entirely sure when the Dirk Maggs adap begins; I thought January, but Wiki says "spring". I might've been thinking of the new series of Cabin Pressure.)

2As per usual, dirt cheap from Amazon Marketplace Used & New

3Read by the author, no less.

4Coincidentally my offair recording was in the box of VHS tapes I recently retrieved from the attic for digitising. Although I'll save myself the bother of actually digitising it. For obvious reasons.
