    A fine job, folks! This one had me laughing my little cotton sock off as I was driving. So much so, in fact, that I missed my turn and had to go round again!

    I have tried to set up a log-in on the forum, but it doesn’t want to let me. Any advice?

  2. Hello.
    second time listener, first time writer-iner.
    What a fun podcast! I really enjoyed it, except, ouch!
    You saw a painting so good it was almost an insult to call it fan-art?
    I’m proud to be a fan-artist.
    Who fan-art is a huge diverse world, it includes crayola-children’s art, yes,
    but it also includes professional level illustrators.
    What it all has in common is a love for the show, not a level of quality.

  3. Thank you – we always enjoy hearing about motoring incidents we cause with the podcast! We’ve not yet been told that we’ve caused a fatal accident but then the dead tell no tales…

    I can’t help but wonder where you were wearing your ‘little cotton sock’ but perhaps it’s better I don’t ask!

    As for the Forum, I do have to activate new accounts, to prevent chronic levels of spam we used to get on it some years ago. As of yesterday afternoon I have, of course, enabled your account. Hopefully you can now login. If not let me know and I’ll take a closer look.

  4. Hi Draculasaurus!

    Second time listener? A new listener! Welcome – it’s always good to hear from new listeners.

    Hmm, hopefully I wasn’t the one to make any such comment about fan art (I don’t think I did!) But I’m sure I speak for us all when I agree completely with your comments. In fact Jean has done a fair bit of fan art herself and you’ll find Andy’s (aka Crumbly’s) artwork all over the website. I’m sure they’re both proud of their work – they certainly should be.

    So, all I can say is good point, well made! I’m sure no offence was intended – we were just trying to express (perhaps poorly!) just how good Steve G Caldwell’s work is.

    Everyone can see for themselves (and buy prints – they look even better on foam card than they do on the web – no we’re not getting paid to promote him!) at:
