rants & raves

DARREN SCOTT EDITOR RAVES → Enjoying being able to catch up on many box sets – actual, physical ones. Thank goodness for DVD and Blu-ray! Loved stepping back into the Survivors remake. RANTS → So many fantastic films and TV shows coming up – Wonder Woman 1984 looks fantastic and I was enjoying what I’d seen of The Walking Dead: World Beyond – but now we have to wait even longer for all of them! IAN BERRIMAN DEPUTY EDITOR RAVES → I’m enjoying the samples of old issues that a reader has been tweeting – check out the hashtag #25YearsOfSFX. → MUBI’s fundraiser to support independent cinemas and film festivals is a very worthy initiative: gofundme.com/f/dearvirus → Discovered a lovely zine about the life of the Radiophonic Workshop’s Delia Derbyshire – buy it from deliaderbyshireday.com/shop. JONATHAN COATES ART EDITOR RAVES → Ah,…

captain’s log

There’s an alternate universe somewhere – one without that virus – where the issue of SFX you’re holding is very different. Something altogether more celebratory, given the world’s biggest scifi, fantasy and horror magazine turns 25 this month. You’ll forgive us, I hope, for a somewhat more subdued celebration – albeit an issue that’s still absolutely jam-packed with exclusives. And while she may not be heading our way for a few months yet, I felt it was important to stick with our original plan to have Wonder Woman on the cover – taking us full circle from our first-ever issue with the ahead-of-its-time “girl power” icon Tank Girl kicking ass and gracing our front page way back in 1995. Trust me, I could waffle on about how brilliant SFX is forever.…

POTTY ABOUT RED DWARF Tim Baker, email I just wanted to thank you for the timely inclusion of the Red Dwarf sticker set with your magazine. We are using bribery in the form of stickers to help potty-train my daughter, so these are a nice occasional break from stars and rainbows. All the much-loved quotes have brought a smile to my face as well as hers, but the one with “Mr Flibble is very cross” seemed to make her especially happy. Really gives you hope for the genre taste of the next generation. SFX This, readers, is why we got into journalism in the first place. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US Mark Yon, email Ah… SFX. Is it really 25 years? Hard to realise that when I eagerly bought that first magazine from my local…

long train running

IF YOU KNOW SNOWPIERCER, IT’S most likely from the 2013 film directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Chris Evans. But that film’s premise was actually adapted from the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige – which is also very much the inspiration for the TV adaptation that has just premiered in the US, and is about to hit the UK. “When I heard about the job, I went back to the graphic novels, and I explored them for some of the big ideas, the philosophy and the leaps of imagination,” executive producer/showrunner Graeme Manson tells Red Alert. “And I wanted to keep the series [as] an action adventure, like the movie.” The premise is that in our ecologically ruined near-future, the remnants of humanity have escaped the global frozen wasteland aboard a…

the year of the doctor

Just when you thought there was no more Doctor Who until Christmas – or New Year, who knows – those clever bods at the Beeb only go and offer up possibly the biggest Who adventure ever. Time Lord Victorious is a multi-platform story that’s taken four years to come together. It’s so big that 30 products are being released across – takes a breath – the BBC and Penguin Random House book ranges, Titan Comics, Doctor Who Magazine (never heard of it), audio releases from Big Finish and the BBC, products from Eaglemoss HeroCollector (the folk who do the fabulous figurines) and interactive elements via Escape Hunt, Immersive Everywhere and Maze Theory (who brought us the VR game The Edge Of Time). The release schedule is currently planned to be staggered from…

162 TAHMOH PENIKETT Karl “Helo” Agathon in Battlestar Galactica Canadian actor Tahmoh Penikett is best known for his portrayal of Karl “Helo” Agathon in Battlestar Galactica. SFX caught up with him… Would you like to play the role again? It’s funny – it seems to be a trend where a lot of shows are coming back. With some stuff, in an ironic way it’s more timely now than it was back then. You could definitely say that about BSG. So yeah, 100% I’d be ecstatic and honoured to be able to do the dance with any or all of my cast again. In fact a film I did with [BSG’s] Edward James Olmos and Michael Hogan, The Devil Has A Name, is about to be released. Any cast member you wish you’d had more scenes with? I…
