Episode 27 The Gorgon

gorgon

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-seventh episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Big Finish, 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.

For 1964’s The Gorgon, we’re joined by the brilliant John Rogers, creator of Leverage and The Librarians. (If you’ve no interest in Hammer, but love The Librarians, I rec the first five minutes of the podcast.) Prepare for a deep dive into the messy awesomenes of The Gorgon, a healthy amount of perfectly rational love for Peter Cushing, and ardent appreciation of how much Barbara Shelley can do with such thinly written characters.

We are on Twitter and Facebook, where you can keep up-to- date with our podcast, and we have a Patreon campaign if you’d like to support the podcast and gain access to a bonus episode every month.

Episode 18 The Shadow of the Cat

Hello! And welcome to the eighteenth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth 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.

Cats! Aren’t they wonderful? And just to show how wonderful they are, Hammer made a whole film about their loyalty, tenacity, intelligence, and profound sense of justice. It’s not the cat’s fault the humans keep having the same conversation over and over again, which is perhaps not the most entertaining choice that could have been made. But Barbara Shelley and Andre Morell are there to try and make things better. They don’t always succeed, but they try dammit.
