Cult TV Awards Winners 2018

Last year’s Cult TV Awards were definitely the time of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Not only did the Trek spin-off, which ran from 19—pick up the top gong of “Hall of Fame – Series” but also Director Roxann Dawson (who was previously an actor, playing B'Elanna Torres in Star Trek: Voyager) won the “Hall of Fame – Director” Award.

Inducted into the “Hall of Fame – Producer” this year was Ira Steven Behr, who was with DS9 for its duration, becoming an Executive Producer for 108 of its episodes. He had previously been a producer on Star Trek: The Next Generation and the TV series of Fame. In addition, the “Hall of Fame – Villain” pantheon for the year went to the Cardassian Gul Dukat (as played by Mark Alaimo in 35 episodes of DS9).

Some of our voters were also winners as, thanks to Fabulous Films we had some superb prizes to give away in our prize draw, all just for making your choices. QUANTUM LEAP – The Complete Blu-ray Collection went to Mark Prior of Chatteris; BUCK ROGERS – The Complete Blu-ray Collection went to Sally Luke of Chelmsford; COLUMBO – Complete Season One on Blu-ray went to Chris Smith of Urmston; and THE INCREDIBLE HULK – Movie Collection on DVD went to Cliff Hedges of Bromley.

The Dawson Watch on DVD

‘Them’. The ‘Faceless Ones’. ‘Enemies of Mankind’. The ‘Aliens’. No, this isn’t David Icke on one of his lecture tours.  This is one of our most iconic comedians placed into a high-tech humour format. Les Dawson is a legend, much remembered for his deadpan style, curmudgeonly persona and snide jokes about his mother-in-law. The BBC series THE DAWSON WATCH saw Les tackle a different subject in each episode, with his unique approach framed in an intriguing comedy vehicle.

It ran for 19 episodes between 1979 and 1980. When you tie this into his work as a novelist, we can see that here was a man who knew far more about what was going on in the world, and in his book “A Time Before Genesis” he even predicts the future in a way that might just be coming true, right here, right now. Apply this thought to watching this series and added layers of interest are exposed.

The Mad Death on DVD

The Mad Death - out now on DVD from Simply MediaNever has the hymn “All things bright and beautiful” been given such a morbid undercurrent as in the 1983 three part mini-series The Mad Death. It is used as the title music, and the way it is sung, by a young voice which is quite frail, it immediately brings visions of classic horror.  The series took two years from its 1981 production to be screened by the BBC, and for those with any fondness for dogs and cats, or foxes, it is not comfortable viewing.

Brought to us on DVD by Simply Media, BBC Scotland produced the serial, based on the book by Nigel Slater. Its trio of 50 minute episodes chronicles the quick contagion of rabies in the UK. A French aristocratic woman smuggles a Siamese cat into Scotland, hidden in a large inside pocket in her smart coat (probably a stretch on plausibility, but we’ll go with it). It had previously been in a set-to outside prior to the trip, which meant it was infected, and effectively a ticking time bomb.

Quantum Leap out on Blu-ray

Quantum  Leap - The Complete Collection - out now on Blu-rayHaving made its debut Stateside in March 1989, in the UK it would be nearly a year before Quantum Leap would come to our screens. Here, the show began on BBC Two on 13th February 1990, airing Tuesday nights at 9.00pm. Unlike so many American series before it, its popularity meant we got to see all the stories from its five year run. However, the final episode was scheduled to be aired on 14th June 1994, but got bumped after the death of dramatist Dennis Potter earlier that month, delaying the airing until 21st June 1994.

Now we have the opportunity to get our hands on a UK Blu-ray release of the series, thanks to Fabulous Films. AND YOU HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN A SET, RRP £149.99, IN OUR PRIZE COMPETITION. The winner was Stuart Edwards of Wallingford.  Meanwhile, relive all the 97 adventures once more, as physicist Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula – Captain Archer in Star Trek: Enterprise) steps into the quantum accelerator, jaunting across the course of his own lifetime, putting right the little things which alter the big picture. He’s assisted by Al (Dean Stockwell – Jon Cavil in the Battlestar Galactica reboot), his only link back to the base of the time travel experiment and entering the scenarios as a hologram, with Al playing the percentages of trying to help work out where they’ve ended up and what they are there to do. Just to confuse things, Sam takes on the looks (in mirrors at least) of all sorts of different protagonists.

Cult TV Awards 2017 Winners

The winners of the Cult TV Awards 2017 have been announced.  As has been the case for these ‘gongs’ since they were first presented in 1994, our nominations stage followed by the voting stage ensures that the particular niche which makes up appreciators of Cult Television are allowed to ensure their choices stand out from what is seen at other awards ceremonies for the medium of television.

Sure, you would expect the likes of Doctor Who and Game of Thrones to be well-represented in the choices made, but probably not the likes of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Westworld or Dark Matter. And with the ever-expanding Cult TV Hall of Fame, it means that every year we can invite new icons to join those we celebrate the most, including the likes of Adam West, Agent Dale Cooper, and Space: 1999

And now, here’s the full list of nominees and winners, including the infamous ‘Hall of Shame’…
