"WHOLOCK" (Sherlock meets The Doctor) - John Smith
"The challenge was clear: remake a classic (or not-so-classic) film in no more than one minute. Hundreds of people slaved away on their mini-masterpieces, and our panel of judges has chosen the 20 best UK entries and assembled them here in a cleverly abridged, riotously funny and sometimes utterly weird set…"

25 Things you Didn’t Know About Superman (for Virgin Movies)
Superman: The Movie was released the year after I was born. Yep, I’m ‘old’! I don’t think I saw it until I was five or six, but growing up, along with Star Wars, the Christopher Reeve movies were my absolute favourite things. It was only much later that I learned about Donner getting fired before having chance to finish the sequel, Lester taking over and exploring a more comedic direction, and so on. As a child, all I knew was that Christopher Reeve was the absolute embodiment of the character to me, even as the budgets (and literally the sets) began to crumble around him. The power of that first film always stayed with me.
I know Superman Returns has plenty of critics, and I guess I’m as sentimental about the original as Bryan Singer must have been, but I enjoyed the fact that it paid homage to Donner and Reeve, and felt it was a shame that Brandon Routh didn’t get to have another shot at the role.
Cut to 2013, and my own son was born in January. I really hope that Man of Steel will be a fitting (new) tale for my son’s generation, as I honestly feel that the world is better off with Superman in it.
Anyway, with bringing the nostalgic waffle to an end (!), it was a pleasure to create this for Virgin Movies, probably 30 years after I first drew the character…
