Hello! And welcome to the 27th episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and L.M. Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.
For 1964's The Gorgon, we're joined by the brilliant John Rogers, creator of Leverage and The Librarians. (If you've no interest in Hammer, but love The Librarians, I rec the first five minutes of the podcast.) Prepare for a deep dive into the messy awesomenes of this film, a healthy amount of perfectly rational love for Peter Cushing, and ardent appreciation of how much Barbara Shelley can do with such thinly wirtten characters.
