Desert Of Zin

The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

Delta Forever

Best line: “It’s like when you go to a wedding, you feel like an idiot on the way but when you get there everyone’s wearing a fez…”

It’s a BBC Three pilot for a new comedy series about obsessive fans of a series of novels about a teen hero called Delta Dempsey.  I laughed and laughed and laughed.

I know people just like them, bless ‘em, and I suffer my own special obsessions so I understand how it works…

So far it has only been the pilot but it’s brilliant.  The two female fans desperately wanting to get involved, the borderline insane Scots lad (calling himself Guantanamo Ray) who hates what’s happening with the film adaptation and the two lads with no interest in the books but with a couple of tickets for the advanced screening who are there for the booze and the ladies..

It’s well worth a watch.

It’s available on the BBC iPlayer here for the next 6 days.
