Who View: Day Of The Daleks

Jon Pertwee's 1972 Doctor Who adventure Day Of The Daleks (written by Louis Marks) was one of the first videos I bought back in the late 1980s. It was always a bit of a favourite and an obvious choice for BBC video at the time as their first Dalek release on video. A colour four parter with Daleks and a popular Doctor.

The original video release was a 90 minute omnibus edition. It later got re-issued in its original episodic format but despite how much I re watched Day Of The Daleks I quickly discovered it wasn't a fan favourite with everyone else, including Jon Pertwee who criticised it for its minimal use of Daleks.

Fast forward some 25 years and I found myself yesterday watching the special edition DVD release of the story.

Day Of The Daleks sees The Doctor, Jo and UNIT caught up with 22nd Century guerrillas who have travelled back to the 20th century to assassinate a politician who they believe kicked off World War Three. The Daleks have glided into the future and taken over the earth using Aubrey Woods' Controller as their puppet to keep tight reigns on controlling slave workforces and rebels.

The last minute inclusion of The Daleks in the story meant at the time the BBC had limited Dalek props for their inclusion in the story. Step in the modern day DVD team to create new scenes with more Daleks, new special effects and new Dalek voices provided by modern day Dalek Nicholas Briggs.

The special edition version ertainly enhanced my enjoyment of the story further than before. I always enjoy the tale as it features a great cast but it just shows what can be possible with a few modern day tweaks (and purists still get the original four parter on this two disc release if they want it).

There's also several additional features here including Blue Peter clips and a comedic look at the pointless task of trying to date the UNIT adventures with comedian Toby Hadoke.

Interview With Mezzo Soprano Laura Wright

Laura Wright Interview
for The Guide
I recently interviewed Mezzo Soprano Laura Wright who has released her EP The Sound Of Strength on Decca Records.

The concept behind The Sound of Strength EP is the body as the ultimate instrument. There are plenty of similarities between athletes and classically trained singers – the need for dedication, being healthy and being prepared to challenge yourself.

Laura has taken this desire to always challenge herself as an inspiration for the EP. "We love the kind of music that goes with sport which tends to be classical," Laura says, "You look at The Three Tenors and The World Cup and I've tried to bring that (music) and my sporting passion together. I wanted something I could listen to in the gym because I see my body as an instrument and my voice as a muscle."

Laura has taken her classical music to a new level with tracks including Puccini’s Nessun Dorma and Barber’s Adagio for Strings, arranged herself and melded to driving beats, with the help of producers Starkey (who has worked with composer Einaudi), Killahurtz and Dan Vinci (who has worked with everyone from Skream, Snoop Dogg and Jesse Ware). Doing so, she has created a new sound which melds beauty and power to startling affect. 

She is currently working on her forthcoming album, due for release in September.

Retro Vinyl: Russ Conway Presents 24 Piano Greats

1977 was a year where 20 Golden Greats albums by bands such as The Shadows and The Beach Boys were topping the album charts.

Its therefore hardly surprising that TV promotion label Ronco thought it might not be a bad idea to pull out another former hit maker of years gone by and try and go one better. Well I say one better, it was four more than twenty as Russ Conway played 24 Piano Greats!

Russ Conway Presents 24 Piano Greats involved Russ returning to the recording studios once again to lay down new recordings of his hits Side Saddle and China Tea as well as versions of piano hits popularised by the likes of Sounds Orchestral (Cast Your Fate To The Wind) and Joe Mr Piano Henderson (Trudie).

It would be easy to dismiss this LP as a low budget cheap cash-in on Russ's earlier successes, but if anything, it was repeating the magic formula of laying down more popular tunes in the Russ Conway style.

Found for 20p in a Newport charity shop last week!

Who View: Doctor Who - Deep Breath Reviewed

Peter Capaldi
So The Doctor is back on our screens, although for me he never quite goes away. Having watched Deep Breath at its Cardiff premiere a few weeks ago my daughter and I bit our lips as not to reveal any spoilers to anyone for Peter Capaldi's debut episode.

In fact I actually quite enjoy not telling people spoilers, its a degree of one upmanship on a spoiler hungry generation, but I also believe seeing a preview is a privilege.

So even though I watched the episode once again last Saturday, I've been quite interested in hearing peoples views on the new series. 

There's a lot of positivity about Peter Capaldi's portrayal while some stark negativity about a plot line that didn't appear to make much sense.  "I doubt anyone under the age of 12 could have made sense of it," someone said to me. "That's odd," I replied,"my three children all loved it!" Incidentally they are all under 12. perhaps thats a clear indication that Steven Moffat said at the recent Cardiff Q&A that he not only writes Doctor Who for himself , but children as well!

I actually enjoy the Steven Moffat penned debut Doctor Who episodes. As with Matt Smith's debut Moffat doesn't have the Doctor recuperating in his bed for half the episode, he gets The Doctor out into the storyline abet in a befuddled and confused state and throws him into the action. If anything it character builds the new Doctor with a few obvious links to previous incarnations along the way.

Jenna Coleman & Peter Capaldi
The safe haven of Deep Breath is its Victorian London setting and the familiarity of characters Madam Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Their loyalty to the Doctor in his new form is undiminished while companion Clara's may seem slightly questionable. If anything I love Jenna Coleman's portrayal of Clara, but if she is The Impossible Girl that has known the Doctor through all his time lines how does she find it hard to accept the new Doctor?

Then again, Capaldi's Doctor is very different in temperament and unpredictable even seating his companion in a dangerous position. There is much I actually enjoyed about Deep Breath from its beginning with a dinosaur rampaging through Victorian London to the little comic exchanges between Clara and Strax. 

As for Peter Capaldi's Doctor, a first episode is not always a fair analysis as you wear a Doctor in. For me Matt Smith is a tough act to follow (I always likened Matt's Doctor to a young Troughton or an old man trapped in a young man's body - but still very much The Doctor!). 

I think we could have a good Doctor in Peter Capaldi though, a combination of Pertwee's style and Tom Baker's unpredictability with more thought, deepness and knowing harking back to Hartnell... stay tuned!

Writing Doctor Who Previews For Deep Breath

Meet The Band: Lucius

Brooklyn based band Lucius recently toured the UK and band member Pete took time out to answer some of my questions for The Guide.

Who are you and how did you come together?
We are Lucius, we are a band and we came together to sing and rock and spread joy across the universe.

Where are you from?
We we all born from different parts of the country, the west coast, the south, the Midwest, New England even the upper peninsula of Michigan - but we all met in Ditmas park Brooklyn. I would say Lucius was born in Brooklyn.

How would you describe your music style?
It's more interesting to hear other people describe our style to us. We might be the creators but everyone else is the listener - maybe the audience has a better vantage point in which to tell us what we sound like. I tell people that we play music - sometimes it's quiet and sometimes it's loud, maybe they will like it.

What’s been your best live experience?
We have had a bit of a whirlwind year. We have played well over a hundred shows and still have about three months or so of touring left. It's hard to gauge because so there have been so many shows that have had so many great aspects to them, sometimes it's a great set, sometimes it's a great venue and sometimes it's a great audience - and often times all of those things come together. We had an amazing time at the Nelsonville music festival this year - it's a wonderful festival run by a group of really amazing supporters of Music, art and local farmers and cooks.

You have a new single and album coming soon can you tell us more about that?
We are so excited to start working on new material - after almost two years of touring we are chomping at the bit to make a new record. I think it will really reflect the experiences we've had in the road and how much that's influenced our live show and how we think about creating and performing music.

You’re touring shortly are you looking forward to that?
We are almost always touring and we are always looking forward to seeing more of the world, meeting new people and finding a new audience. We love to tour, it makes everywhere seem like home and everyone you meet like a member of your family we are very fortunate to be able to tour as much as we do.

What can people expect from your forthcoming Bristol gig?
We have never been there, so we can only hope to play our asses off and hopefully the audience will respond to that.

Will you be coming to Wales sometime in the future?
I sure as heck hope so!

Where can people hear your music?
Come to a show! It's the best way to listen to music! Or you can hear us online -  try not to get distracted by the onslaught of websites dedicated to fainting goats or videos of baby kittens being cute or newscasters accidentally saying inappropriate things on TV - that's a wormhole that you might not escape from and never get around to actually listening to our music - just skip the internet just come to a live show.

Interviews With West End Actors Rob Wilshaw And Lloyd Green

Rob Wilshaw Interview from The Guide
I recently had the opportunity to interview two young actors from South Wales  who are now starring in musicals in London's West-End. In both instances I had previously witnessed both actors in local productions in Newport in previous years.

Rob Wilshaw had previously been Prince Charming in Newport Riverfont's 2011 pantomime Cinderella. We would later see him in Joseph and His Technicolor Dreamcoat at Wales Millennium Centre.

Rob has recently joined the cast of Jersey Boys in London. “I play Donny and Knuckles as well as other characters,” Rob told me, “Although its not as dance orientated as Joseph, I’m still on the go all the time. I go on stage to be one character then run off get changed quickly run back on and become someone else straight away.”

Lloyd Green Interview from The Guide
Jersey Boys is a play with music,” continues Rob, “so, it’s actually really nice to do some gritty scenes where you get to act. Its nixes to do something with a bit of depth to it but then again have the joy of the music and dancing its really cool.”

Lloyd Green who hails from Caldicot recently took over the role of Sky in the West End production of Mamma Mia. I had previously seen Lloyd in a supporting role in a local production of The Producers some years ago so it was good to see his new-found success in his new show.

Lloyd recently completed three years in drama school, and was spotted  by Mamma Mia! casting director Steve Crockett during a student showcase, “ I went in and auditioned for a couple of rounds. Then he called me on the way home that day and said “we are considering you for the role would you be interested?” I was confirmed two days later, it was amazing.”

“I couldn't believe it, if I'm honest, I had a great audition and so much fun, everyone here is so lovely and bubbly, it was fantastic, but I never actually thought it would happen. “
  • Jersey Boys is currently playing at the Piccadilly Theatre, London, while Mamma Mia! is playing at The Novello Theatre, Aldwych.

Cuttings - Previewing Doctor Who : Deep Breath

It was a big thrill recently to attend the red carpet Doctor Who screening of Deep Breath in Cardiff with my daughter. It was a lovely day in early August and the crowds were out to greet Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and some Daleks and Cybermen.

Both Seren and I queued for hours to get a glimpse of the series stars and Seren even managed to get Steven Moffat to sign my latest Doctor Who Magazine.

Attending the screening at St David's Hall was a big thrill, as was hearing new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and series show runner Steven Moffat talk about the series.

Following the screening we managed to get new series star Samuel Anderson to autograph our photos (unfortunately we didn't get Peter or Jenna).

As I'd tweeted our experiences for The Argus I briefly wrote a piece up on my return home. Imagine my surprise when it made page 3 of the following days edition!

I also wrote a preview piece prior to the broadcast of Deep Breath last week which appeared in The Guide.

Yes it can be great fun writing about Doctor Who as long as you remember to avoid spoilers!

Vinyl Find: Release Me - Engelbert Humperdinck (Decca, LK 4868, 1967)

Engelbert Humperdinck was the best selling artist of 1967 and the man who stopped The Beatles getting to Number One with Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane when his single Release Me dominated the top spot.

I couldnt resist picking up this copy of Engelbert Humperdinck's Release me for a mere 20p in a charity shop last weekend.

Thirteen tracks adorn this 1967 album from Decca Records including Hump's 1967 No.1 smash Release Me.

The album also features him tackling several other big hits of the era including There's A Kind Of Hush (Herman's Hermits), This is My Song (Petula Clark) and Yours Until Tomorrow (Gene Pitney).

My familiarity with his material goes back to my mum's 45RPM collection as a child, and several hits to boot including The Last Waltz and Winter Wonderland.

So here we are, a 20p charity shop find and a great LP cover with Engelbert Humperdinck proudly displaying the best in side burn's from 1967!

Stars on 45RPM: Sleepy Joe / Just One Girl by Herman's Hermits (Columbia, DB 8404, 1968)

Manchester's Herman's Hermits had been regular stars of the UK chart scene for nearly four years when they released Sleepy Joe (Columbia, DB 8404) in May 1968.

The single followed the recent release of the film Mrs Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter which paired the talents of the band Peter Noone, Karl Greene, Keith Hopwood, Derek Leckenby and Barry Whitwam alongside show business stalwarts Stanley Holloway and Lance Percival. 


Herman's Hermits success was undoubtedly the knack of turning out great pop songs that captured the imagination of the younger teenage audience. “We were the kids next door,” Barry Whitwam told me in 2013, “our fans were usually much younger than those of the Beatles and the Stones. The parents liked us as well, we were a different image.”

Sleepy Joe was written by songwriter John Carter (who co-wrote Funny How Love Can Be for The Ivy League in 1965) and Russell Alquist (who penned A Little Loving for The Fourmost in 1964).

The song with its sing-along hook was a classic example of 1968 pop chart material, steeped in nostalgia while maintaining an evident vaudeville style. Look at other songs from the era from The Beatles Lady Madonna to The Hollies Jennifer Eccles and you'll get a nostalgic sense of the past marrying with the present pop tunes of the day. Sleepy Joe was covered with the track Just One Girl and reached No.12 in the UK charts in 1968.

This single was a recent charity shop find for 50p in Tenby, West Wales .

Danielle Lewis Plays Newport Riverfront Terrace

Danielle Lewis
Following on from yesterdays pictures of Remembering August playing Newport Riverfront Terrace on Saturday afternoon, today's photographs highlight New Quay singer/songwriter Danielle Lewis.

Danielle entertains the audience
We saw Danielle perform the Riverfront Terrace recently and I had pleasure in featuring her in The Guide's Meet The Artist a short while ago.

Danielle performs in both English and Welsh

Danielle is making exciting waves with her acoustic compositions mixing a variety of English and Welsh material including songs from her debut EP Paper Hearts as well a few interesting covers. Particularly impressive was her rendition of You're The One That I Want from Grease. Danielle will be releasing her second EP shortly.

Retro Vinyl: Golden Hour Presents The Platters Greatest Hits (Golden Hour, GH808, Stereo)

Some groups have an incredibly checkered history when it comes to line-ups, Los Angeles The Platters are one such group, but then its hardly surprising given their longevity having originally scored their first hit Only You in 1955.

Golden Hour Presents The Platters Greatest Hits (GH808) highlights the greatest hits from their first decade, including Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, The Great Pretender and My Prayer as well as renditions of other popular hits of the day My Way and Delilah.

Released in 1975 this budget release from Golden Hour forms part of a series of similarly themed and well compiled presentations.

Vinyl Find: The World of Reginald Dixon (Decca SPA 38)

On a recent stay in New Quay, West Wales, I couldn't help but notice when my family went to buy ice creams at a local ice cream parlour the electric tones of Beside The Seaside blaring out of a juke-box. 

The tune on strict rotation with other familiar summertime melodies undoubtedly added a little background soundtrack to the onslaught of potential ice cream buyers making their way over from the beach in the midst of a hot afternoon.

Beside The Seaside's tones were popularised by Sheffield born theatre organist Reginald Dixon MBE, ARCM during the 1930s. Dixon is remembered primarily for his role as resident organist at Blackpool Tower ballroom between 1930 and 1970 and becoming one of the best-selling organists of all time on gramophone records.

His popularity endured from the 78RPM era well into the long-playing boom of the 1960s and 70s. While EMI were keen to have Reg recording new tunes, Decca records were equally as keen to plummet their 78RPM archives to bring together a collection for their World of series in 1969.

I find something very creative in Dixon's organ playing when I listen to it, he's not afraid of allowing the instrument to paint a variety of scenarios with sound be it an Edwardian summers day or indeed a wild storm at sea.

I found this stereo version of The World of Reginald Dixon (SPA 38) a few weeks ago in a Newport charity shop for 20p.

The album boasts almost 30 tunes (albeit many in medley form) but almost an irresistible buy for the discerning Dixon connoisseur back in 1969!

This LP also comes with its original 19'11 price tag, (that's 19 shillings and eleven pence, 95p in today's money) and a 1969 photo cover of Reg at his beloved organ!

CD Review: Georgia Paterson - Hear Your Voice EP

Anyone lucky enough to catch Georgia Paterson's recent set at Newport's Big Splash Festival were treat to a memorable bright, breezy acoustic solo performance.

Thankfully, so soon after a great set we don't have to depend on our memories to hear Georgia once again, this time on her new EP, mixing acoustic pop with tinges of folk with a hard edge in places.

Each track i an honest and powerful performance. The opener Not For Me (Na Na Na Nah) has a real feel good summery vibe, while Hear Your Voice and Let Me Go really demonstrate lyrical and musical depth hinting more at what she could develop into in the future should she ever front her own band while the final track I Couldnt Help is pure Georgia, live and unplugged.

Visit georgiapaterson.com for more details on Georgia and her music.

Peter Capaldi Doctor Who Premiere In Cardiff

At the beginning of our journey... waiting for the bus!
Seren and I travelled to Cardiff today to see the world premiere at St David's Hall of the Doctor Who episode Deep Breath which features Peter Capaldi's debut as the Twelfth Doctor. 

Here's some pics I posted on Instagram earlier. There are more pictures over on Retrospace and you can read a report I wrote for The South Wales Argus over on their website.

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman Attend Doctor Who Premiere In Cardiff


Today was quite an exciting day off work for myself as my daughter Seren and I headed to Cardiff to attend the Doctor Who red carpet event and world premiere of the Series 8 episode Deep Breath by Steven Moffat.


The crowds were already growing by the time we arrived for the red carpet event and we waited patiently and hopefully that we might get a glimpse and maybe an autograph of some of the series stars.

As we waited we noticed BBC Wales presenter Jason Mohammed interviewing members of the crowd whilst presenting his Radio Wales show.


We knew we were in the right place when The Cybermen turned up!


Jenna Coleman (Clara) turned up wearing a fetching red dress!


The Daleks helped with crowd control at the red carpet event.


It looked like everyone was running to a tight schedule on the red carpet but show runner Steven Moffat managed to give a few autographs!


Seren and I only got a glimpse of the 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi on the red carpet , who moved past us pretty quickly!


We were better served after the screening of Deep Breath when the audience had a Q&A session conducted by Jason Mohammed with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat.


New Doctor, Peter Capaldi remarked he was impressed with the "staggering enthusiasm " of fans who had turned up to the event from across the world.


Jenna Coleman made a costume change for the Q&A and revealed that working on Doctor Who was "An amazing experience, there's no other show like it and its a very happy crew".


Steven Moffat is always entertaining regards his thoughts on Doctor Who. "I write it largely to entertain me," he said, before continuing, "I write it to entertain kids too".

The new series of Doctor Who commences on BBC1 with Deep Breath on August 23. You can read my report of the event for The South Wales Argus here.
