Jonathan Ross

He’s conquered TV and radio, and interviewed more A-listers than you can name. Now, the comic book fanatic has finally moved into his favourite medium writing his own comics, such as Turf.

FAVOURITE SF/FANTASY MOVIE “How long have you got? Blade Runner, Alien, Aliens, the original Thing, Planet Of The Vampires, 30 Days Of Night. I love all the Harry Potter series. All the Lord Of The Rings movies. I can’t wait for The Hobbit. Rollerball, Death Race 2000. I love those ’70s Roger Corman things. I liked The Princess Bride, of course

“I liked Stardust. Japanese fantasy like Zu Warriors Of The Magic Mountain by Tsui Hark. I like the original Fantastic Planet, the French animated movie. I love Guillermo del Toro – Pan’s Labyrinth was awesome, and The Orphanage was incredible.”

FAVOURITE SF/FANTASY TV SHOW “Dollhouse is really underrated. Star Trek, of course. I like the Kirk years and the Picard years. I’m not so big on the other ones, but I like them all. Doctor Who and Torchwood. There was an early black and white series made by ITV called The Corridor People, which I really liked. I love The Prisoner and The Tomorrow People. In America I liked Firefly and Fringe.”

FAVOURITE SF/FANTASY BOOK OR COMIC “Fables, Sandman, Swamp Thing – the Alan Moore Swamp Thing. Conan, anything by Robert E Howard. I love all that kind of stuff, swords and sorcery. I’ll read almost any fantasy.”

SCI-FI GUILTY PLEASURE “I don’t think I’ve got any sci-fi guilty pleasures really. If it’s well done, well acted and well written, I love it.”
