The latest episode of 'Those Old Fossils' lands and what could be more fitting than a Halloween Special for Halloween.

Thinking about Halloween and scary stories... there’s an element of Star Wars that always puts Craig in mind of the famous HG Wells book (and subsequent movies adaptations) ‘The Island of Doctor Moreau’.

Written in 1896 its a very early science fiction horror story telling the tale of Edward Prendick who is shipwrecked, rescued by a passing boat and is left on the island home of Doctor Moreau, a mad scientist who creates human-like hybrid beings by experimenting on humans and animals.

But how does all that relate to Star Wars? Craig is thinking, of course, of George Lucas’s fascination in creating alien races by taking earth-bound animals and turning them into human-like beasts.

So looking at things in that (rather grim) context Craig thought it would be a bit of Halloween fun to explore this while reimagining Lucas as a mad scientist surrounded by his creations.

‘The Island of Dr Modesto’, if you will...

Enjoy the Show.
