From Big Daddy to John Cena: Les Kellett and the golden age of British wrestling

The likes of King Barrett and Neville are impressing in the WWE right now but the history of British wrestling goes back much further than the occasional breakthroughs in Connecticut.

Audiences of 18 million people watched World of Sport at its peak and enjoyed some of the most fascinating characters in the history of the sport.

Perhaps the most remarkable was Les Kellett. "He was never the top man, but he was always the one people talked about and the one people wanted to see," screenwriter and director Harvey Auzorst tells us, explaining how his film Kellett came to be in development.

Impressed by the script for Auzorst's Blackpool-based Rat Pack Sands, wrestling legend and current Nxt general manager William Regal vouched for Auzorst among the famously close-knit British wrestling community.

The former Blue Blood put him in touch with his one-time tag partner Dave Taylor, which opened the door to

‘Doctor Who: The 12th Doctor – Vol.1 Terrorformer’ Review

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Dave Taylor | Published by Titan Comics | Format: , pp

Dr Who comics have been around for quite some time, with Who comic strips going back as far as the 1960′s. I have happy memories of reading Dr Who Weekly from Marvel in the early 1980′s, and always felt the Doctor was a natural character for the comic book form. Until recently the TV show adventures of the good Doctor were usually hampered by poor special effects (I grew up assuming most planets looked like chalk quarries), whereas in comics, you have an unlimited special effects budget. To work at his best, the Doctor needs that.

Now Titan Comics have taken on the job of publishing the new adventures of the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth incarnations of the Doctor. This particular volume collects together the first ever comic book adventures of the Peter Capaldi Twelfth Doctor,

Comic Book Review – Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #1

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who: Twelfth Doctor #1…

Freshly regenerated and with a new head full of unanswered questions, the Doctor whisks Clara Oswald away to a strange and distant world.

Clara thought she was in for an evening of marking essays on the Metaphysical Poets, followed by going out on a date – or at least trying to. You know, normal stuff.

Instead, she’s facing down exotic flora and fauna in her best dress, backing up the Doctor on a trek through traumatically alien undergrowth – and she doesn’t even know what the Doctor is searching for, or what will try to kill them should they find it!

After being relatively impressed with the Titan Comics run of Doctor Who so far and absolutely over the moon with Peter Capaldi’s incarnation of the Doctor, I’ve been rather looking forward to getting my paws upon this first issue of

The Twelfth Doctor makes a 'big budget' comics debut - review

We were won over by Titan Comics' Tenth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor comics when they arrived in July, offering a thoroughly well written and beautifully illustrated return to the world of the previous Doctor Who incarnations that felt just like episodes of the television show, only with bigger and better-looking monsters.

Our chief criticism was their initial scope - both located on Earth in relatively parochial settings. Comics offer an easy chance to transcend BBC budgetary constraints, and with Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #1, big budget is just what we get.

Part one of the story 'Terrorforming', by writer Robbie Morrison (Nikolai Dante), artist Dave Taylor (Judge Dredd) and colourist Hi-Fi, takes Peter Capaldi's Doctor and companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) to a distant ice world which turns out to be far less icy than they had expected. What they discover is a tropical terraforming project going awry and

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #1′ Review

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Dave Taylor | Published by Titan Comics

After reviewing Wytches #1 last week, I got an email from Nerdly editor Phil Wheat along the lines off “how would you like to review Titan Comics stuff for me?”. Eventually I calmed down enough to reply, and here I am reviewing a much looked forward to issue of Doctor Who. More importantly, the first issue for Peter Capaldi’s incarnation.

The story starts with the Doctor and Clara going off to the frozen planet of Isen VI so she can learn to ski and he can sit inside and drink Bovril. However, when they there they find the Isen VI is now a tropical jungle, terraformed by the filthy rich Kano Dollar to impress his wife-to-be and off course, people in power for as yet unknown reasons. But it soon transpires that what’s behind the terraforming is

10 British Wrestlers Who Had Profound Impact In America

WWE.com

For decades, Britain has been known across the world for producing some truly great wrestlers. Although just a small island nation with a population of 60 million, the worldwide impact of British stars has been profound. I have previously stated, when appearing on the Bwc British Wrestling Roundup show on Challenge TV here in the UK, that I genuinely believe that British wrestlers are the best in the world. When you consider our nation’s small size and the number of Brits who have made a global impression on the wrestling world, compared to the size of other wrestling countries, it is an excellent rate ‘per capita’. The British style, technical and mat based, has become slightly diluted as the American influence has crossed the Atlantic over the past two decades, but it has enjoyed a renaissance to a degree through the popularity of some of the wrestlers listed in this article.
