    What book are you currently reading?

    Just finished "The Double Cross System" by JC Masterman. All about the activities of the XX Committee in WW2 that ran a network of double agents to feed the Germans false information. The Abwehr thought they had a good spy network in the UK; in reality the British controlled everything. The most celebrated agent was "Garbo" who played a big part in the D-Day deception plan (Operation Fortitude). Now reading "Dark Sun" by Richard Rhodes which is about the development of the hydrogen bomb. First part focuses on how the Soviets got their own atomic bomb with a lot of help from their spies at Los Alamos.

    Have just started Farcry New Dawn on PS4. Controls are same as Farcry 5 so I can hit the ground running!

    Have to disagree-thought it was a very good 2-parter myself.

    Nothing beats the wood-panelled TARDIS interior from the Tom Baker era.

    Van Gogh was an interesting character and I agree that Tony Curran did a fantastic job.

    My better half and I had the pleasure of hearing former West End theatre star Jeff Leyton sing at Falkirk Town Hall last night-he came into the bar after the show and signed autographs and posed for pictures. Really nice guy and still an amazing singer.

    Shane Rimmer R.I.P

    As mckee74 says, Shane was very generous with his time and was a popular Showmasters guest. He will be sadly missed RIP

    Video Games played in 2019

    Wolfenstein 2 was very good-the design and look of the game is well-realised and there are lots of side-missions and collectables. Now playing Mad Max. It seems to be mainly based on Mad Max 2 (film) in terms of the look of the game and the storyline. Resources are scarce as you would expect and gameplay is a good mix of driving & combat. I like games where there is a lot to do in the open world and this fits the bill. If you like Farcry games this will be to your taste.

    Index cards.

    I believe there is a feeling among some signers that a signature on a blank background could be easily manipulated to create forgeries.
