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.

Oooooooh thankyou for the magnificent head’s up Derren! Can’t wait to see it!! (And I take it that it’s pure coincidence that a certain ‘other’ ghostly show will be on Living at the same time….? Hmm? ;))

Take care

Graham says:

I look forward to your demonstrations or explanations of how millions of sheep, sorry people, follow and believe in superstitions and religions. I will have to watch the show after work though, Boo.

So Derren, a couple of thousand years ago you could have been a Messiah although a couple of hundred years ago, not even that long, you would be burnt as a witch. I guess we do live in a sort of accepting society, unless you live in some parts of the Middle East.

I’ll record it. All the best @ Derren. x

Also hope you are well πŸ˜›

October 27, 2009 at 12:55 pm

Your arse is always worth watching.

October 27, 2009 at 12:58 pm
JibJib says:

Oh lovely I cant wait. I not too bothered about whether ghosts/paranormal are real or not, but I do love the idea/aesthetic of being spooked. In fact GhostWatch was a programme that shat me up so much I was off school for a week. In fact I think it brought on some kind of psychosis and had to go and see a dr for help…Oh how I can laugh about it now. HeHeHe

Melissa says:

freaking awesome..all things derren are worth watching! It’d be funny to see a programme with Mr. Brown analizing most haunted. Especially when they were using those rotating ouji boards. It’s interesting how they just take what they want to see from these things. sigh. It’s funny tho. Especially those little dust bunnys the refer to as orbs. x

It’s good what tactful chap Derren Brown is .. “canÒ€ℒt remember if I said anything remotely interesting” he says … modesty indeed! a lesser known of his famous skills Derren Brown on our tellies again horah!

Ms G says:

Hm .. that’s not really cheering me up, nor making my life more beautifull …

Your arse? Hm … you will show it more up close this time .. Maybe a little mooning?

Have fun you brittish spoiled rotten persons .. We hate you.

Oh well .. hate .. We .. er … (holding a hot cup of coffee) wish you all good things in life .. (but a limit here and there and bit better spreading .. what’s wrong with that ..)

October 27, 2009 at 1:53 pm
Nopke says:

Sounds cool. Although I’m not sure about the arse, please keep your jacket below the waist ..

I’ll open my mind around that time and enhale .. suck it in from over the canal. ..

I never thought I would see “features Derren Brown and Yvette Fielding” in a TV listing in my lifetime.

Who’s next? Colin Fry? I hope you are on together and you tell the dozey women that she is being conned by that dodgy Acorah (can not be arsed to check spelling of the d*cks name) and making a t1t of herself in front of the world.

oooh and hypnotise her to speak about about Mr Acorah on the next live edition….. come on Derren scrap Nyman and get me, think of how fun that would’ve been!! πŸ˜‰

All that and the camera never strayed ‘neath your waist!!! No arse shots to soil my screen after all. Tsk.

Fun show, brought back some great memories of watching classic ghostly tales. Ghostwatch definitely needs to be repeated!!

October 27, 2009 at 10:17 pm

Have just finished watching it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not just your lovely self, Derren, but relieving some of the shows that were featured. Esp Ghostwatch, I remember watching that back in the early 90’s and it frightened the living crap out of me at the time!

Very enjoyable programme. πŸ™‚

Gutted I missed it for I was to busy getting on with my beautiful life I hadnt looked at the site. I will have to mentally slap my spirit guide for not telling me about such a simple pleasure. Already tried you tube and hope its going on soon.

October 28, 2009 at 9:08 am

I cannot believe Yvette “I’m a fucking liar” Fielding is still claiming Most Haunted is 100% real and not sick-inducing entertainment. Can. Not. Believe. It.

Yvette, you are a fucking liar πŸ™‚

peachykeen says:

Typically, my little boy woke up having a nightmare just as the part about ‘Seance’ came on so I missed it. Tsk.

I remember now how much Ghostwatch scared the crap out of me and my teenage friends who were having an innocent halloween sleepover… I think most of us stayed awake all night in case Mr Pipes came for us!!

Crooked House was great. Didn’t know it was you till this programme…doh! Tell Mark Gatiss to write another festive ghost tale next time you see him, or a new Box novel.

Ò€ What kind of comfort isnÒ€ℒt a cold comfort? Ò€ Eh?!?! Baffling! – made total sense to me. πŸ™‚
