In another surprise move by one of the show’s co-creators, Mark Frost revealed today that he has been working on a Twin Peaks novel called The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks that reveals “what happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago”. It also offers “a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touch on by the original series.”
do you remember the Radio Times cover on Threads? It’s one of the scariest covers ever. It’s a picture of a traffic warden with a bag over their head with an eyehole poked out of it and blood all over their face holding a machine gun. It’s an indelible image, that. So I’d say Threads is my favourite British horror. The others I’d go for are Children On The Stones and The Owl Service. The Owl Service is quite close to my heart. I came to it quite late, to be honest, because it was the first colour ITV broadcast for children, that was the big claim to fame. But it’s like David Lynch. I watched it about five or six years ago, and I was just stunned by it. You wouldn’t even fathom showing that to children now.

After working for years to expose and foster the dark, brooding sounds that exist in the current underground, nothing could make us more proud than to share with our audience this, a new look at one of our most cherished influences; the soundtrack to David Lynch’s Eraserhead."
" In Part 1 of this exclusive interview, Engels discusses the strange backstory behind the Black Lodge that he and David Lynch at one point had planned for Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, which would have been set in the 1950′s at President Eisenhower’s inauguration and explained BOB and the Black Lodge inhabitants reasons for ‘wanting to go home’ on the series.
"He also discusses how a planned Sheriff Truman Black Lodge rescue sequence, following up on the events of the series finale, would have tied into this…"
Where we’re from, the birds sing a pretty song and there’s always music in the air.
"When Twin Peaks debuted, it was preceded by ads asking a seemingly simple question: Who killed Laura Palmer? But series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost never planned to answer that question. Instead, they wanted to spin labyrinthine tales around the titular Pacific Northwest town. The mystery would deepen, but the solution would move further out of reach. That’s a beautiful idea for a TV series, and like a lot of beautiful ideas, it didn’t work out so well when tested on the real world…"
