  • Clean Straw For Nothing – A Guide to Drinking on a Budget (2)

    …And we’re back, after a hiatus of what seems like forever! Personally, I blame all the drinking. Yes, it’s… For this edition we’re going to cover everyone’s favourite pipe-cleaner – lovely gin! “Gin, cursed Fiend, with Fury fraught, Makes human Race a Prey. It enters by a deadly Draught And steals our Life away.”

  • Clean Straw For Nothing – A Guide to Drinking on a Budget (1)

    Welcome to the first in a series of articles about drinking on a budget. Future articles will include the best  and cheapest places to drink, both in the on and off-trade, as well as good deals and fine street-drinking locations.

Despite the reappearance of insane vampire Crumb and the magnificent, Satanic Captain Hatch this episode had all the hallmarks of being a little frothy, a romp, before it no doubt all gets rather serious […]

  • Being Human Series 5 Episode 3 – Pies and Prejudice

    Toby Whithouse’s supernatural drama Being Human continues to go from strength to strength, a fact made all the more galling with the knowledge that this is the final series. It’s been described as the ‘British Buffy’ and while such a comparison might seem trite in many ways its rather apt. In particular, whereas Buffy specialised […]
