We have just received a preview of the cover of next week's Radio Times...
We are delighted that the return of DOOMWATCH to BBC1 has made it to the cover of the Radio Times Magazine in the UK. Pat (our secretary) has just scanned in the cover for fans to see in advance of it's release. It has to be said that the revival of the series is the worst kept secret in recent years but who are we to complain? We are confident that Brian Gorman will do an excellent job in the title role. Not only that, Blake's 7 is back with the much anticipated and long awaited "Season 5"! Hurrah!
If you can't wait to see Brian acting, he is starring in 'EVERYMAN: The Story Of Patrick McGoohan - The Prisoner' This is a new play detailing the life of the theatre, television, and film star (who sadly died last year), and is to be staged in Manchester this summer at the famous Lass O’Gowrie pub on Charles Street. Writer Brian Gorman believes that a theatrical tribute to the star of such cult tv favourites as ‘DANGER MAN’ and ‘THE PRISONER’ is long overdue. The play is produced by Gorman’s company TRANSMISSION UNLIMITED. Tickets will be available soon. More details can be seen on the production’s Facebook page ‘JOHN DRAKE’. Production information is available from firstname.lastname@example.org
Manchester-based BRIAN GORMAN is from Wigan, and is a writer, artist, and actor. He has designed posters and brochure illustrations for The Chester Gateway Theatre, and had work published in The Liverpool Daily Post, The Big Issue, and Green World (the magazine of The Green Party). His artwork has also been seen on television (ITV1’s ‘Martina Cole’s Lady Killers’), and he is currently working on a professional commission to produce a series of graphic novels on Manchester bands. As an actor he has played leading roles in corporate and educational dramas, music videos, and has just played the notorious mass murderer Thomas Hamilton in a television reconstruction of the 1996 Dunblane massacre.
