Reality Check: Life during Wartime

Reality CheckReality Check logo: Life during Wartime

Continuing our new series of Sci-Fi London podcasts, we have a pair of interviews about modern Science-Fiction takes on warfare which have a classical, yet prescient feel to them: Duncan Nott talks to Garth Ennis about working on the new Virgin Comics version of the classic British sci-fi comic strip Dan Dare which sees Dare called out of retirement as Britain and Earth enter new hostilities with the Mekon due to a corrupt Prime Minister running the country. Also, Tripwire Magazine editor Joel Meadows presents and takes part in a brief press conference with actor Michael Hogan about playing the long suffering character Colonel Tigh in the 21st century reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, which is about to return to our screens shortly for the second half of its final season. Recorded and edited by Alex Fitch (with thanks to the MCM Expo for their invite to the Michael Hogan junket).
