I bought it when it was fresh, hot and brand new on the stands way back in that Summer of 1968.  I kept it with a bunch of other DS related mags for years.  They disappeared mysteriously while I was away at college.  To this day my Mother disavows all knowledge of what happened to those zines.

Hi Josette, I've been a DS fan for 38 years and I've STILL never watched the whole thing from start to finish.  There are episodes from 1966 and 1967 that I have yet to see.

I'm not sure when I will ever be able to watch the whole series starting from episode 1 and ending with 1245.  Maybe when I retire if that ever happens (I find it doubtful).

Would love to see your cake. Enjoy your party.  It's nice that the whole family enjoys the show!

How intriguing.  Have any other photographs of this Barnabas portrait been published?

It looks as if this incarnation would have been the most Byronic Barnabas yet... glad to see they finally got the hair and clothes right for the 1790s... (although I'm a huge fan of the actual series' OTT let's-go-rococo version of 1795).

Best, G.

Thank you, David, for letting us know.

I will keep Craig in my prayers.

Heather, these are gorgeous images!  Spectacular!

Thanks so much for sharing all the goodies.

I love the Thayer David one.  Pity that doesn't circulate more widely.  I believe Bobubas does sell it.

If you've never seen it, you might enjoy watching a 1962 film, Burn Witch Burn! also distributed under the original British title Night of the Eagle (sounds like a Nazi war movie doesn't it?) with fabulous Peter Wyngarde, Janet Blair and Margaret Johnston (divine actress).  I am not sure that any of the PT Angelique plot was a direct copy of the story of that movie, but there are definitely some similarities.  I believe there was finally an official VHS or DVD release a few years ago but I'm not sure; my copy is from the Laserdisc.

Ron Barry's interview with the Shadows stars is available on one of the commercial soundtrack releases.  I can't recall whether it's on Rhino or Varese Sarabande.  It is the one that has the 1969 Original Soundtrack album and the interview (a slightly edited version) follows as an extra.  That might be the one that included a Ron Barry phone interview with David Selby, as well.

Thanks for answering, Michael.  Freemasonry shows up en passant in several books in my library, mostly the brotherhood as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries--I have very little sense of the practice today.

I also did not that non-Christians were allowed to join.  I'm not a monotheist, but I find the brotherhood interesting nevertheless.  It had quite an influence upon the formation of the Golden Dawn in London in the 1880s (the three founders of the GD were all prominent Masons) and, through that, in the practical history of several prominent occult societies of the 20th century.  (Forgive me for mentioning this minor historical trivia--I know many in the Brotherhood would prefer if everyone would just forget about it!)

Here's a minor bit of DS connection to the Masons.  In the original Edgar Allen Poe tale, the Cask of Amontillado, the narrator explains the presence of a trowel, a heap of bricks and a tub of freshly poured cement in his basement to his helpless victim because he is supposedly a Mason.  (I could be getting this wrong, but there's definitely a Masonic ref in that story.)  As we all know, Dark Shadows copied the main events of that story not once, but four times!

Best wishes,

Steve

Hi Michael, how interesting.  Do the Masons always celebrate the Summer Solstice?

Please disregard if you can't discuss this due to your oaths, but, since you mentioned it...

cheers, Steve

Oh My Goddess!  Penny Dreadful in every fanboy's dream version of Antique (or should that be Aunt Eek, hahhaha) Roadshow (Ghoulshow?).  You know they'll LOVE it in Peoria!

I don't think I qualify for this giveaway since I got one of the Mark One DVDs, but I just had to cheer you on as you move forward in your career! sounds brilliant... in a *grisly* way!  (cue macabre canned laughter)

You know THIS is going to have Dr. von Bulow frothing at the mouth!

Cheers, G.

Peter Bradford and/or Jeff Clark, hands down.

It's way way WAY down the list for anyone else anywhere near as annoying.  Maybe Hallie and Carrie Stokes?

I'm not into polls enough to run a poll here on Best Bitch of Collinwood, but I'd say that PT Roger would be hard to defeat for the title!  That's probably why I enjoy the character so much since I find the vicious humor amusing.  I know this sort of thing is not to everyone's taste but I agree with you MB--as far as I am concerned, Roger IS very funny!  There's a kind of twisted pathos to the character as well ... he may be a VERY sick puppy, but I find myself unable to look away when he's onscreen.  And Edmonds creates the character with such brilliant subtlety.

That's a great shot from that sequence, too.  Congratulations, MB!
