Episode 2 X the Unknown

Hello! And welcome to the second episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and L.M. Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

This episode we’re discussing 1956’s X the Unknown where one of us is ever so pleased it’s set in Scotland, there is an entirely reasonable argument about whether a goopy-porridge like substance from the Earth’s core is a metaphor for nuclear war, and we are ever so delighted to have an American scientist not played by Brian Donlevy.

The first bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up for our patrons. Here we’re covering each of the Amicus portmanteau films. First up it’s 1965’s Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, featuring Scottish werewolves, a plant with a brain, and Christopher Lee being utterly marvellous.

Episode 1 The Quatermass Xperiment

Hello! And welcome to the first actual proper episode of the brand new podcast Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and L.M. Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

In this episode we’re talking about 1955’s The Quatermass Xperiment (with an X – very important) where there is an entirely reasonable and moderate amount of discussion on early rocketry, and any theorising about Quatermass’s secret German origins is solid and well-founded. (We also apologise in advance to any Brian Donlevy fans.)

Episode 0 Not The Four-Sided Triangle

Hello! And welcome to the first episode of the brand new podcast Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and L.M. Myles (Verity!), plus occasional guests, will be discussing, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass XPeriment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

Alas, this first ep is not a proper episode, rather it is the teaser episode where we introduce our shiny new podcast, and Paul spends an excessive amount of time explaining why we’re not covering The Four-Sided Triangle. (Liz would have said “it’s not a horror movie” but apparently that’s just not in-depth enough.)

We are also on Twitter and Facebook, should you like to be kept up to date with our podcast, and we have a Patreon campaign should you wish to encourage our, uh, deep analysis of classic British horror:
