downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Wrong Door Day

It's Wrong Door day -- the launch of BBC3's new comedy show written by Ben Wheatley whose credits also include work for web, TV such as Time Trumpet and advrtising such as Pot Noodle Crumlin and more.

Anyone who likes comics will, we think, enjoy the show which debuts on BBC3 at 10.30pm tonight.

Well. I have to say I'm rather with anonymouse, although I tend to give comedy shows a couple of episodes before forming an opinion. If we're going to see a build of regular characters this might just work, but I don't think urinating dinosaurs and swearing giant robots are going to provide long-running sources of humour. The mad army experiments definitely show promise, and the rifts on stupid technology (the dancing girl sketch) also show some promise.
