Oh, the horror!

Hello there! Long time no see….

It’s been a busy couple of months. I shot a small role in a new BBC Drama, IN THE DARK, a lovely scene with MyAnna Buring…

Then it was on to a leading role in a magnificent horror film, PANDORA.
I can’t tell you anything about it, other than it was dark, gory – and lots of fun to do.

Our director is Carl Whiteley, here’s one of his funnier projects…

And here’s a few recent pics I took whilst on location to give you a little flavour of what is to come…..

Love big brown script envelopes….

Today’s post brought this lovely package…..

… and I can tell you no more about it, other than we have a rehearsal read through Monday in Manchester.

And I’m doing a great film project in Manchester over the next few weeks.  I can tell you no more about that either…. 🙂

All will be revealed my friends, and all will be good.

Have a great weekend

P.S. Wishing all these protesting at Downing Street well for today, though I don’t expect to see it on the news. Make their pips squeak!

LARDY BUM! New video out – and some new audio too….

Hello dear, dear reader…. I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend.

Some wonderful New Dave to share with you this evening…..

I’m very happy to release the new Yorkshire Teabaggers video to you, a parody of Mardy Bum by The Arctic Monkeys.

Please have a look, subscribe and share…


I’ve also had the pleasure of an audio recording session today with my old chum Douglas Thorp. We last worked together many a year ago. As Doug says…

“David and I first crossed paths when I was a lily-livered art student at Sheffield City Polytechnic in the 80s. He played a mildly disturbed barber for my degree show film, which was shown throughout the land in one cinema. This brings us back together for the first time in 30 years.”

And finally, remember my other alter-ego, Barry Pigeon, had Episode 3 released on Friday…. it’s getting exciting! Please subscribe and share…

Bex and I had a fantastic time at the 25th Festival of Fantastic Films where THE ZOMBIE KING had the UK Premiere.

Met up with fellow actor George McCluskey and producers/actors Jennifer Chippindale and Rebecca-Clare Evans, filmmaker Natalie Kennedy, actor/comedy genius Emma Kenny Kennedy – and a whole bunch of Fantastic Fans, including Stephen and his sister, and bunch of really nice guys, one of whom was an engineer…. he mentioned that quite a lot. I wish I could remember names 🙂
