Tim Harris

'Ow do,

The house and garden are starting to come along fine now, the sheds have been cleared out and a lot of excess vegetation in the garden has been chopped back. Who knew house rejuvenation could be so much fun. Fun's too strong a word but it'll do.

I only need a big skip to get rid of all the junk however having been delivered a mini skip instead I reckon this could take a bit longer. I did manage to rescue some wine glasses though and these will come in handy during the summer with Spar's finest 2-for-9 wine deal.

You might have noticed that I've dropped 'The Timternet' as the title of this website (no? ok) and gone back to The Tim Harris Website. I meant to do this in April but forgot to post the right file to the internet and... oh it's not that interesting a story.

On Saturday 23rd May I went to see The Doctor Who Symphonia or whatsit at Wembley and it was most pleasant. Peter Davison was an excellent jovial host and the music as performed by the orchestra was brill. Steven Moffatt and Murray Gold were in the audience so that was cool. Wine was pricey at 15 a glass so I needed a drink to get over it. If you get a chance to see this concert anywhere don't forget to invite and pay for me too, I'd certainly see it again.

Goodbye to Terry Sue-Patt who died Friday 22nd May, he played Benny in the halcyon earliest days of Grange Hill and his was the first character seen on screen. Another untimely death as he was only 50, but he will be long remembered by those of us of certain generations who watched this series back in the late '70s / early 80's. Brilliant episodes back then, with a brilliant cast.

Other television losses for the year so far: Patrick Macnee and Leonard Nimoy.

Tim! (Sunday 30th August 2015)

Holy Bat Crap!

Yet another one has popped off, this year seems to be a good one for well-know personalities popping off in fact.

This time it's the turn of Yvonne Craig who has passed on recently. She was Batgirl in the 3rd series of the definitive Batman series and also appeared in an episode of the one true Star Trek so she will always be remembered by people of certain generations.

Goodbye old chum.

A blast from the past! Tim Harris in comics.
Super Spider-Man TV Comic No. 472 Captain America UK No. 57 Left: Two of the three comics I had my name published in. I'd entered a competition to win a copy of a book titled Heroes of the Spaceways and was one of the winners.

Super Spider-Man TV Comic No. 472

Captain America No. 57 (dated 24 Mar 1982)

I entered the competition as Timothy Harris and was named as such in the competition results.

Below: the covers to the comics the competition appeared in, and the cover to the book I won.

Super Spider-Man TV Comic No. 458

Captain America No. 43

The other comic I had my name printed in (thanks to my brother) was an early edition of Whoopee (which I don't currently have a copy of)

Super Spider-Man TV Comic No. 458 Captain America UK No. 43 Heroes of the  Spaceways
The competition was to unscramble some simple space hero anagrams:

Elku Wykrakles     And Rade     Bleraa Ralb     Nagol    Trodoc How     Trisem Copks     Ramnedmoc Karrets

Slafh Groond     Jor Kabel     Sefoorpors Sutamseraq
