Interview with the bearded behemoth here . He rates the Boosh and Snuffbox, and his bestest favourite program is another one that features on here a lot too.


Whilst the first half is the usual "Grrrrrrr. Film Companies." he seems in quite a good mood for once.


The same site has a catch-up and new pics from Watchmen . The comedian appears to be played by Paul Rutherford.

Ah, cheers for posting that Paps - I probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Will comment more when I've read the piece.


I think you'll find that generally he is affable and entertaining - it's only when you get him on the subject of royalties from DC and Hollywood that he goes a bit Mr Grumpy.


Oh yeah, apparently Snuffbox is coming out on DVD.

He rates the Boosh and Snuffbox


I'm not surprised. There's this image of him (which he allows to cultivate) as some kind of weird beard magus but generally he's very down to earth. I remember reading a thing about him a few years ago and they were round his house and noted the Harry Hill video he had in the front room or whatever.

i'm not surprised that alan moore likes the wire. one of his most enjoyable series of the last decade was top ten which was a kind of superhero hill street blues/nypd blue - cops who had superpowers working in a metropolis where half the populace also have powers or are aliens etc (there are a couple of collected editions of the series available as well as a {slightly disappointing in comparison} graphic novel prequel set 50 years or so earlier). moore boned-up on the structure of those tv shows with their extended casts and overlapping storylines and i think he must have watched homicide: life on the streets too (something of a forerunner to the wire).


there was a brilliant episode of homicide in which a guy (possibly played by vincent d'onofrio) had an accident (or may have been pushed, i can't remember) on the subway. i'm sure moore used this incident as inspiration for an issue of top ten but transposed it from the subway making it a transporter/teleportation accident instead. i'm leaving out the specific detail that made it so memorable deliberately in case you ever see it.


he (moore) freely admits to being a 'cultural kleptomaniac' and borrows characters/ideas etc from novels/tv/comics (such as bryan talbot's brilliant adventures of luther arkwright comic series which was in many ways a forerunner to watchmen - and he cited kurt vonnegut's use/perception of time in novels like cat's cradle as an influence also) - but he will take a vibe or feel not just plagiarise like some might.


did you ever watch homicide? i used to watch it when it started on channel four but stopped (can't remember why specifically). i don't know how much i missed but i got back into it later and really enjoyed it. i watched the penultimate season and it ended with a brilliant episode with a shootout in the police station - you didn't know who was going to live and who might die. then channel four didn't show the last season! the f*ckers!


i think the final season was shown later on uk living or one of the satellite channels - and they're showing it on itv 2,3 or 4 late at night now although i don't know which season. dunno how many seasons were made but it's worth watching if you get the chance. i can't remember what point i was trying to make when i started this now. sorry about that.

and here's a link to a short text story by moore, light of thy countenance, which is being adapted into a comic story but as it was originally intended as a text story this should be all that you need:

Get your Alan Moore paper dolls here - and Peep Show and IT Crowd.


Also there's a massive interview with Moore here


And another here re the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century comic (in stores now) and stuff.


Haven't read any of it yet myself - it's on my list of things to read along with everything else.
