Tucked away between the humanities buildings and the library at Manchester University is a little converted church called the Stephen Joseph studio. Although deconsecrated many moons ago, to drama students like me it was still a sacred space. Every Monday night, we had free run...

The polling has closed - you've chosen HUBBLE (so Clare is happy!) - followed by 'Yuri Dogarin', and with 'Bowowowie' and 'Clive' tying for 3rd place. Although, of course, this is an alien space puppy... from a day go egg... in a drama written by Trev & Simon so anything could happen to it! Anyone who's listened to Episode 1 of STRANGENESS in SPACE, Featherheads, will know that the episode ends with the four of us (Me, Trev, Sophie, and L.E.M.O.N.) adopting a puppy (please remember, Space Puppies are not just for Strangemas). But what do we call it?

Twenty five years ago in 1990, when everyone was wearing psychedelic bucket hats, hoodies and baggy jeans and stepping out (and stepping on) to the sounds of the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses, The Singing Corner (aka Trev and Simon) released a version of Donovan’s classic hippy dippy 1968 hit, Jennifer Juniper, with the man himself – yes, the actual Donovan, (no, not Jason Donovan)...Donovan…(no, not Borrovan)…Donovan!

We were at Great Central Railway in Loughborough last Saturday for a sci-fi day out, and we had a drawing competition in the Waiting Room.

We had a load of entries, all fantastic, and all on the theme of Space!

And now, we need your help to pick the winners. We had loads of brilliant entries .. too many to show them all so we've narrowed it down to the Top Four in each category.  The winners in each category will get a STRANGENESS in SPACE goody pack but very well done to all the finalists whether you win or not!  We'll leave the voting open until the end of September, so keep those votes coming in  (and if your picture is in here, let your friends know so they can vote too!!)
