Sadly there was sad news today as well. John Hurt, one of my favourite actors has died, aged 77.
Of huge importance to sci-fi fans everywhere because if his role as Kane in ALIEN in 1979, John appeared in countless other great films.
His rich voice always lent gravitas to his movies, something I feel he brought to Alien despite his short stint.
John was born down the road from here in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Our sincere condolences to his family,
