Serious and Organised Revisited

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

I’ve been revisiting my notes for Serious and Organised after enough time for the ideas to mature a little more. After a bit of editing to cut fluff I got down to writing a background to go with it drawing on the classic 70s and 80s cop shows for inspiration. A bit more polishing and […]

Elvis: The Legendary Tours

Monday, June 12th, 2006

I didn’t know what I was going to write about today but then I saw this announcement and it became an easy call. The first supplement for Marcus L. Rowland’s Diana: Warrior Princess is now available. So here it is in Marcus’ own words… I’m very pleased to announce that Elvis: The Legendary Tours, the […]

When Inspirons Collide

Monday, April 10th, 2006

Walking to work has up moments and down moments. You get to see wild life. You get drenched by the rain. I’ll not blather on/wax lyrical on the subject today. The big plus is time to think. So when I started this outpouring of my incomplete concepts I had an idea for a 70s TV […]

Serious and Organised: Logo

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

I had been going to blog about the need for a cool modern (what a few years ago would have been a Cool Britannia) logo for the show. SOCA beat me to the logo and the BBC beat me to the analysis. "It’s not our policy to comment on the logo or the agency […]

Serious and Organised: the Set Up

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

So what does our hypothetical show need to make it a hit. First a pair of tough crime fighters. But this isn’t the masogonistic 70s so one will be a woman. She’ll be hard as nails, dug from the same quarry as Buffy, ex special forces. For a bit of a role reversal he’ll be […]

Coming Soon to ITV 1: Serious and Organised

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It may just be me but behind all the serious talk today about the launch of SOCA there was a faint hint of a wink and a smirk. As though a few civil servants who like 70 and 80s cop shows had come up with it after a heavy night of drinking… “Ya know what […]

Men of Action!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Watched a 1960s promo film/making of for “The Dirty Dozen”. Some shots of the actors and crew at work. Some of them at play. An info light version of the extras so beloved of the DVD makers of today. What was funny was the voice over. How they kept telling us that the cast were […]
