It’s Been 15 Days…

…since we did a roundup of slightly spoilery things spotted on social media, so let’s combine one of those with the usual “ooh, there’s a recording tonight” post. Let’s get that stuff out the way first: episode three records tonight, we won’t be there but there are correspondents in the field, set report coming this weekend. Probably on the Sunday rather than the Saturday this time, but I’m sure you’ll cope.

Anyway, over on Twitter, we spotted this intriguing tweet:

Slash to feature in Series XI? Tumblr will be delighted. Ah no, this is Damien Slash, an actor/comedian/voice-over artist, who has just broken a non-disclosure agreement I shouldn’t wonder. Interesting use of the word “more”. Mr Slash’s agency page reveals that his real name is Daniel Barker, and that picture of a table Danny tweeted a few weeks ago revealed that there was a Daniel Barker at the episode one readthrough. So presumably, Slash/Barker (that’s slashslashbarker) provided voices for episode one, and has now been asked back for episode three. It seems unlikely that it’d be the same character, unless it’s a particular vending machine or something. He also Instagrammed a photo of a door, which is nice.

In other news, it seems that this week’s episode will contain some green screen work. Oooh. Robert tweeted that green screen pic on Monday, then another on Tuesday, and furthermore Danny tweeted this very green-hued picture. So the chromakey work spilled over at least two days, possibly even four – can we expect extensive use of green screen in the final episode, or were they just doing a handful of time-consuming things? Let’s take another look at that second Bobby pic for a moment:

Hello, Karl! Karl has a nice face. But we can’t help noticing that it’s not Mike Tucker’s face. Nor is Mike Tucker’s first name Karl. We know that The Model Unit have provided at least some props, so we assumed they’d be on board for this type of thing. Maybe they’re just busy making loads of Starbugs and blowing them up. Let’s say that.

And finally, if you squint at the background in this picture Danny tweeted of DoP Ed Moore’s lovely jumper, you can just about make out a bit of one of the sets:

SPOILER ALERT: it’s red.

  1. He changed his name because he got confused with Danny Baker. So lets got for a guitarist, yes that will work. Danny Axel.

  2. i hope Damien Slash doing “more” voice overs is because he has a talent for it and its not a Kerry Shale (Medi-Bot / Taiwan Tony) situation where he will just put on different over the top silly voices or accents each time

    Series X did use accents for comedy quite abit which hasn’t really been a thing in previous series of the show

    I didn’t know Kim Jong-Il did voice work…

  5. Why red?

    Because it helps people relax!

  6. Remember that Sun Maid raisins advert with the little lad? “Why red?” “I like red!”

  7. Hi Clem
    OMG I have been looking for an advert with a small kid saying “why red” “I like red” for the last five years. My fiancé and his sister quote it all the time but they cannot remember what advert it was from! I have “you tubed” all the sun maid adverts now after your comment and emailed and FB messaged Sun Maid because I can’t find the advert anywhere. Are you sure it was Sun Maid can you describe the advert in more detail please. Even better still if you can send me a link to it!!!
    Regards
    Dory
