Derren Brown hits top 20 Twitter status – no sign of slowing up


Despite only having been on Twitter since shortly before The Events, the unusual but rapid climb of a certain handsomely dressed mind mingler has raised an eyebrow or two. Many of you have questioned as to how Mr  Brown has managed to achieve such results in such a short period of time (as if we’d tell you!) – but all talk of embedded messages and subliminal tweeting is hugely encouraged.

So now in to the UK top 20 slides Mr Brown along with an increase in followers that is usually reserved for those with 1million+ followers.

I’m sure this is all down to his devastating wit and repartee and has urged many of you to vote for him on the Mashable Awards as Most Goateed Twitter User – very nice of you all and thank you so much for the support and lovely messages.

We’re looking to encourage more of the Enigma Crew on to twitter when the next tour goes out. In the mean time you can follow (@lordcoopy – for art updates and tour news, @phillisdorris – for all the stuff too naughty to put on here and @AbeoDbart – for technical and twitter tips).

DB on TV

Oh hi. Just a quick postlet to alert your eyes to the fact that my face and arse will be soiling your televisuals tonight on BBC4 at 9pm. I did what’s known in the industry as an ‘interview’ (kind of like a chat) for a documentary about the depiction of ghosties on TV. There’s me, Mark Gatiss, Steve Volk (Ghostwatch) – I think we’re all on there. I haven’t seen it, and can’t remember if I said anything remotely interesting, but am looking forward to it.

Please now continue with your beautiful lives.

Postal strikes cause havoc at Brown Towers

Due to the postal strikes we will be holding back the posting of items.

We have had so many losses, delays and foul ups via her Majesties service that we decided to hold back during the strikes. We have seen delays of 2 months on some items and we are striving to get things to you. At the moment we’re averaging 10-15 days for a 1st class delivery – we expect this to increase.

If you have ordered anything more than 3 weeks ago and not received anything please email us on

We are very sorry about this and are hoping it will all go away soon. Please accept our full apologies, please mount all blame on Phillis for everything and not Derren, Coops or Abeo (they are just too lovely).

Anyone entering in to the (now not so) hidden competition should email Lost at Sea for a temporary poster number and an entry form.
