Re: Dead Man's Treasure Hunt - locations and news

After visiting as part of this year’s event, I can confirm that the pond has been fully restored and looks magnificent: https://i.imgur.com/fCICGLV.jpeg Don’t let the sight of that blue sky fool you - this was by some distance the wettest Treasure Hunt I’ve ever attended and we got absolutely soaked...

Re: Christmas banner competition 2023 - poll

Off topic - is there a way to turn off the snowflake effect on the forum? I’m afraid it plays havoc with my eyes so I can’t look at the screen for more than a few seconds.

Re: The Late Ray Austin

Thinking back to that time, Raymond (as he later preferred to be called) was also on a couple of other forums but he stopped posting on those as well. I think he was using those to get in touch with other industry members he’d lost touch with - John Llewellyn Moxey being one of them, I remember. Lin...

Re: John Steed And His Bowler Hat

The crew on Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) should have had an arrow on the underside of Kenneth Cope’s wig - that way they could have prevented him from wearing it the wrong way around for the first few episodes.

Re: Annual Dead Man's Treasure Hunt

Bless you, Andrew - we certainly have done so far. The weather wasn’t great last night, meaning that the bridge was looking a bit drab, but no less atmospheric for it:
