The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 11th March 2016

Simon was taking a break from his part-time job of saving dogs from burning buildings (he sets the fires himself, and leaves all cats to burn, but it is an otherwise noble pursuit) to make an appearance in the studio discussing films, and what he is doing at the weekend. To be honest it was mostly about what he is doing at the weekend. Turns out that - beside setting some fires and saving some hounds - he is going potholing.

When Danny mistakenly asked Simon where he was going to be doing this - breaking the number one rule about conversing with Simon which is 'Never Show Any Interest in Anything Simon Says or Does, It'll Only Encourage Him' - Simon told everyone he was going down the massive St Albans sinkhole. He's under the belief that the sinkhole is actually a hellmouth that has opened up, so he's donning his tightest Buffy the Vampire Slayer leather trousers, loading up on holy water and steaks (both wooden and beef), and hunting the forces of darkness. He hopes to be back by tea time.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
