A Message from Peter Miles

A message from Peter Miles:

"To all my wonderful fans: I, proudly, and with much pleasure, give you my very special news!
I'd love you to give your support to me one evening this autumn (date to be announced) as I am starring at the famous Music Room in the lovely Pizza Express House called The Pheasantry at 152 Kings Road, Chelsea, SW3 4UT.

I shall be the compere, and producer, and principal singer of really great songs from the United States, with my superb quintet band led by a true living legend, both in the UK and the USA, DUNCAN LAMONT.

Plus! My guest singer is a former James Bond girl, 007 being Roger Moore.

Also, in the interval, I shall be giving away (free!) signed photos of myself in Doctor Who on TV.

You may e-mail me personally (petermilesjazz@yahoo.co.uk) or book online at www.pizzaexpresslive.com or call 020 7439 4962 (10 AM to 5 PM) or pay at the door on the night (do please wait till I know the exact date this autumn).

With many good wishes to all of you,

Peter Miles."

Fifty Things About The Concorde

This month, our 50 Things... reflects all the wonders of Davison-era Doctor Who: obsessing about aviation and dinosaurs, Anthony Ainley dressing up, and altogether too many supporting characters. Tune into Time-Flight, for footage of vintage 1980s Heathrow and many pointless Concordes!

Kaldor on the Box

The Blue Box Podcast Episode 247 interviews Dylan Rees, author of "Downtime-- The Lost Years of Doctor Who", who has this to say about Kaldor City:

"Kaldor City is an audio series, by a company called Magic Bullet, which is set in the world of Chris Boucher’s Doctor Who... so it involves “The Robots of Death” Commander Uvanov, a character called Kaston Iago played by Paul Darrow, it's got Carnell from an episode of Blake’s 7 and it almost sounds like, what we’d call now, the ultimate fanwank, but it is one of the best things to be made related to the Doctor Who universe.
It’s funny, it’s action packed, it’s a gripping six CD story... it’s an incredible production, and I’d never hear it until I did this book, and I wasn’t even going to cover it. I was like, “I’m sure they did like two CDs and that was it..” and then all of a sudden I found it and I was blown away.
So my one recommendation out of anything that comes out of this book is that you have to find Kaldor City and their follow up Faction Paradox."
