Jane is back on Pex Lives! We kick things off with a chat about The Magician's Apprentice, the just-aired Peter Capaldi opener (which James seems to like more than anyone) then head into a combined fairground twister on Carnival of Monsters and Nightmare of Eden.

Here's Shabcast 11, featuring myself in conversation with Phil Sandifer. This was recorded before Eruditorum Press went live, so events have overtaken it somewhat. We discuss Doctor Who (before the start of Series 9), Susan, Gareth Roberts, Thomas Ligotti, God, Alan Moore, H.P. Lovecraft, Jimmy Saville, Frank Miller, Vox Day (because Phil just can't help himself), Hegel, Marxism, technological determinism, the Situationists, Engels, evolution, revolution, the Anthropocene extinction, Jonathan Jones, and the existential terrors of the Right.
But the main attractions of the podcast are our discussions of Hannibal (which had just ended when we taped), True Detective, and the life and crimes (artistic and otherwise) of John Nathan-Turner. Chatting about Hannibal, we coin the term 'hannibalism', decide how to do Buffalo Bill in 2015, and come to the conclusion that Hannibal himself is a Miltonic Lucifer in a gnostic universe created by a deistic god and, possibly, Hannibal himself. Be aware of spoilers and triggers (note the references above to Jimmy Saville and JN-T).

This time, I'm joined by the lovely and incredibly erudite Gene Mayes - of various Pex Lives appearances and his own excellent new blog Being and Time Lord - to chat about the Gothic. We also focus specifically on the movie A Field in England, Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump's masterpiece of English Civil War-era madness, magic and mushrooms. There be spoilers here, by the way. We range pretty freely and get on to all sorts of other stuff including (but far from limited to) alchemy, John Dee, Hammer movies, Gothic novels, Marxism and Anarchism. It's a long one (just over 3-hours, so feel free to listen in fits and starts) but I hope worth your time.
