In this third episode we become entranced by the bewitching Lady From Shanghai, chat about Hammer horror’s penchant for cleavage and bring a couple of things like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland movie and John Connolly’s Book Of Lost Things. Also a historic week, because we have our first listener questions! Listen in delight as we struggle to answer them intelligently.
