Hammered is a podcast about Hammer (the studio) but not hammers (the tools).

Starting with The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) and ending (maybe) with To the Devil a Daughter (1976), your host J G Byrne - aided by an undead army of super-guests - will chronologically and (kind of) critically and (hopefully) amusingly work through the studio's horror releases. One film at a time.

Original music by the mighty David Blake.

J G Byrne & Maura McHugh get (totally) hammered on Nigel Kneale as they witness the birth of Hammer horror (proper).

They also ask questions.

a) Is Brian Donlevy the least-convincing rocket boffin in cinema history?

b) What does sedated Judith Carroon plan to do with her husband?

c) What became of little Jane Asher's decapitated dolly?

Some of that and less is answered here!


Andy Murray's book on Nigel Kneale - Into The Unknown: The Fantastic Life of Nigel Kneale - was revised this summer and is worth reading if you like the man's work.
The anthology Maura mentioned - We Are The Martians: The Legacy of Nigel Kneale - is available to buy on the PS publishing web site.
And Maura's latest volume - on Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me - can be (and should be) purchased here.
