In addition to our report yesterday, Outpost Gallifrey has received the cover illustration for the wide-release version of Singularity starring Peter Davison and Mark Strickson, due in November. The cover illustration, by Lee Binding, will be seen on the release distributed widely including through subscriptions; Tenth Planet has a special version of the cover, by Stuart Manning, that is limited to 800 copies for sale through their store (cover seen in yesterday's update).

In addition, Outpost Gallifrey has learned that the cast of next year's January release, "Pier Pressure" by Robert Ross, features a guest appearance by Roy Hudd, the British comedian and actor best known for his very long-running radio series "The News Huddlines," appearances in "Purely Belter," "The Roy Hudd Show," "Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life" and "Up Pompeii" and for his role as the undertaker Archie Shuttleworth in the popular ITV soap opera Coronation Street. Hudd recently reprised his role as Max Quordlepleen in the radio adaptation of the final book of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". Hudd plays the role of Max Miller, the legendary comedian enshrined by a statue in Brighton, where "Pier Pressure" is set in the early 20th century. (Thanks to Gary Russell)
