Ask Matthew Holness


Hi guys. I'm from the ]British Sitcom Guide. Great site & community you've got going on here!

I thought you might be interested to hear that we're going to be interviewing Matthew Holness (aka Garth Marenghi) next week about Man to Man With Dean Learner and Darkplace too.

If you've got any questions you'd like to ask Matt please]send them to us and we'll try and put as many as we can to him. Would love your input as obviously, like us, you're huge fans of Darkplace and probably have a few un-answered questions.


Also you might be interested to know I've seen the new DVD (which is indeed out on the 16th). Looking good! The menus are excellent (dark room with tape reels to select episode). The deleted scenes are somewhat non-existant but there's about an hour of extra "interviews" with Marenghi, Learner and Rivers which shed new light on the Darkplace story. The episode commentary I've listened too so far are great too.

Re: Ask Matthew Holness


I would like to know if they are thinking of reviving Darkplace the show (not spin-offs) in any shape or form, like the film that was rumoured or a stage show.

BTW BSGMark - great website, I've been on there quite a few times.

Re: Ask Matthew Holness


Can you clarify if Matthew Holness will be doing the interview as himself or in character as Garth Marenghi? As both situations would I assume lead to different answers.

Re: Ask Matthew Holness


Thanks for the nice comment about the site SaveDarkplace.

JazzyJebus: er, not sure whether he'll be in character or not! That's a very good point. I'm going to try and get him to answer some questions about the real making of the show (i.e. not the story of how Darkplace was made in the 80s) so fingers crossed he won't be in character, at least not all of the time.

If you post anything you'd like to know, whether it be from Garth or Matthew, I'll try and get an answer.

p.s. I've got some press photos for "Man To Man" through now. Will post them on our site soon but in the meantime here's a copy of one...

Re: Ask Matthew Holness


Actually I have a good one now - what should we do with the site? We've got nothing to strive for now really.

Also will there be any more signings?

What made Garth learn and admire the French language?

Or to Matt:

What future Garth Marenghi stuff can we look forward to? apart from Man to Man of course.

Ask him if the DVD release was delayed by MI8, after their similar meddlings in the 1980s pulled the plug on Darkplace.
