Yes, minikillers is next on the list. Already written, just has to be converted into pages and illustrated.

The Minikillers pages are live on my site now!
I haven't merged in all the information collated by Denis yet but I'll do it when I can.

I've just moved to a new hosting company, saving myself $64 a year. (My old one did the trick of taking over my previous host, then doubling fees two years running so $39 became $87 then that became $114, all while service got worse and server downtime increased).

Let me know if you notice anything that's gone awry in the move. It seems quicker to me.

Tricky former hosting from which the quality of excellent site of Piers suffered. Now it works great for me not at all like before in recent years. Razz

1. Page and its content loading time increased noticeably. For example, when before I used to go into the actors search section and select the 30-300 pictures on one page, I had to wait for them to load. Often all pictures did not load (even if you select a significantly smaller number) and I had to reload the page. Nightmare!
Now, the pages loads instantly. Nice, especially when I selected 300 images with actors on one page and all images instantly loaded. Great!

2. No ads (if I enabled the plugin "anti-ad" in my browser, the site worked even worse for me).

3. No glitches. Sometimes the site did not open at all - a page was loading (blank screen and nothing).

4. Knowing these aforementioned problems, in recent years I have visited Piers' website only when necessary. Now I’m ready to visit Piers' website regularly like many years before when there were no these problems. Razz

I'm running a series of Sixtieth Anniversary updates for my website, revising each episode of series 1 on the day it was originally broadcast.
I've covered the first three episodes already, as you might have noticed from the "Hot Snow" thread.
Next up is "Nightmare", which is a tricky one as there's pretty much no original material left to base a revision upon!

Wonderful! I started at Christmas with the Tunnel of Fear DVD as a present to myself and then reading the books about series 1. The more obscure episodes are fascinating. Tunnel of Fear was one without scripts, and it's amazing how incorrect they got the synopses. The cast lists even insist actors were replaced who weren't (Morris Perry, who is present and correct and very very good).

that's one of the problems with having a web site...customer support with certain servers, or providers, can be spotty, often maddening, and of course, as the service goes down, the fees goes up...resulting in an catch -22 scenario...sorta like a dog chasing it's tail....but going to a site, with zero glitches, and a reasonable amount of pop up ads, is a real joy...

Piers' website continues to work great and I am following the latest updates. Very good research. Curiously, scripts of first episodes went into encounters for the shadow boss - for some reason I thought about Fantômas - maybe Piers will reveal other early episodes with hints of an invisible enemy. This is an interesting topic.

The shadowy boss figure doesn't seem to appear after Square Root Of Evil although it's possible that the completely lost episode Nightmare might have referenced such a character.

Of course, it was meant to be a different unknown boss in Square Root Of Evil as it seems that Nick Mason was the "Big Man" mentioned in Hot Snow.

This is perhaps why I thought about Fantômas, because although it seems that we know who was the shadowy boss in the first two episodes, unexpectedly there is a continuation of the line of an invisible enemy as if it was the same type. Possibly there was the style of the invisible enemy in the early Avengers scripts. Alas, it is not known. This would be funny for me if there was a Fantômas variety.
