Waffle On about Nigel Kneal the creator of Quatermass.

Waffle On about Bad News and Spinal Tap
Two rock bands, both from the UK (kind of) and both with very metal attitudes. Yes its Bad News from TV's the comic strip and Americas cult classic film This is Spinal Tap coming together in one big old podcast. Both Meds and Kell are big fans of the Comic Strip and also the writing talents of the creators of Spinal Tap and they decided to not just waffle on about one of the films but both of them. The show is packed with musical numbers from both bands and of course your usual waffle on banter.
Just a note a few of the numbers do contain a bit of language and the odd innuendo (and why not we say)

Waffle On About Bad Taste
On this episode Meds & Kell talk in a excited manner about Peter Jacksons first commercial film Bad Taste. Made over four years mainly during the weekends this is a fantastic example of Peter Jacksons love for film and getting the job done. Yes its quirky, cheap and seriosuly over the top but the Waffle On Lads love it.
At the end of the show there is a Batman Rises review which does contain some spoilers so stop the podcast after the Bad Taste credits theme after the promos.

Waffle On About Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Hello and welcome to the Christmas edition of Waffle On and what better way than to reminisce about a classic feel good Christmas film from John Hughes. Planes, Trains & Automobiles came out in 1987 and is actually a Thanksgiving set film but hey, come on it feels and looks like a Christmas film and as we in England don't celebrate thanksgiving we class it as a Christmas film. Starring Steve Martin and John Candy in the lead roles this films which is basically a road movie comedy, it is packed with laughs, slapstick and of course feel good moments.
We pack this episode of Waffle On with clips from the film and a couple of songs featured on the soundtrack. Many thanks go to Jen Rhodes from The Anomaly Podcast and Stephen Curtis from Tiny Bronco Productions who sent us mp3 comments about this film
As is our norm these days we play a classic song from the film after the promo's so please do listen through and enjoy the brilliant tune.
Finally may we take this moment to say thank you for staying with us in 2010, we cant wait to bring you more Waffle On's in the New Year, so please do have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Waffle On About Garth Marenghi's Darkplace
Written and Starring Mathew Holness and Richard Ayoade this brilliant comedy series first hit the screens back in 2004. A homage to early (and cheap) 1980's style action programmes Darkplace is set in a hospital over the very gates of hell in Romford. Holness plays the main character Garth Marenghi the horror writer who in turn plays Dr Rick Dagless in, Ayoade plays Dean Learner as Garths agent who in turn plays Thornton Reed, Matt Berry plays Todd Rivers who then plays Dr Lucien sanchez and Alice Lowe plays Madeline Wool who then plays Dr Liz Asher. Darkplace is a brilliant, quirky programme that benefits from visual gags, mad syncing, out of scene music cues and seriously bad Foley work all done deliberatlye. Its ounds weird and indeed it is but we hope listening to this podcast while make you go and seek it out and enjoy the dark world of Garth Marenghi and his Darkplace.
As is our norm now we have put a special surprise at the end of the episode. So please do listen to the promo's and then enjoy the song taken from Darkplace called 'One Track Lover' performed by Matt Berry as his character in the show 'Todd Rivers'

Waffle On about Sherlock Holmes 'The Brett Years'
Welcome back to waffle On. In this show Meds and Kell talk about Jeremy Brett's performance as the master sleuth Sherlock Holmes. We talk about the series and Brett himself, along with a brief chat about the other actors in the series. We also talk about other Holmes television series and the odd film but it is Jeremy Brett that we concentrate on.
Brett's Holmes ran from 1984 to 1994 and for me was the ultimate Holmes sadly the series only ended because of Jeremy's death. We hope you enjoy this episode, we recorded it on skype but i think it sounds pretty cool.

Welcome to the Gerry Anderson special. On this episode Meds and Kell go through Andersons back catalogue giving a synopsis and the occasional theme tune to each programme that Anderson produced. Many thanks go to Rob Scalise who provided us with a remix of our Waffle On theme theme and provided us with a comment (oh and Derek Meddings and I just share a surname, we think ). You can find more about Robs musical work at http://startrack.goldenmediastudios.com he's done some soundtrack work there. Also big thanks go our to Rick Moyer from Take Him With You podcast who kindly threw some coins into the waffle on treasure chest and to Ian Wilson from For Your Ears Only podcast who sent us in a great comment regarding the state of British TV.
One small note we recorded this episode ouside the Waffle On studios and so we have a couple small jumps (you may not even notice but we're honest here) in the recording thanks goes to the typical British weather and the thunderstorm that happened while recording. Hope you enjoy it and please remember to send your comments in to either this site or our email at firstname.lastname@example.org
