Mervyn Stone does not look like a special man. His nose is too big, his hair is always on the point of open rebellion, and he appears to have put his clothes on in the dark. He looks like a hedge which has been dragged through a man backwards.

Mervyn was script editor of the BBC television series Vixens from the Void, a ‘Dynasty in Space’ soap opera which gripped the nation in the 1980s; an intergalactic, glitter-themed, shoulder-padded bitchfest featuring wobbly spaceships, wobblier women and the wobbliest performances ever.

Mervyn is never allowed to forget his guilty past. The fans won’t let him. This is why, twenty years later, Mervyn reluctantly finds himself at ‘ConVix 15’, a Science Fiction convention.

NOTES:

Nev Fountain is a multi-award winning writer, who has worked mainly in radio and television comedy. Starting out on Radio 4’s Weekending sketch show, he was given the Peter Titheradge bursary for promising new comedy writers.

He is chiefly known for his work as principle writer on the award winning Dead Ringers, in both its radio and TV incarnations (alongside writing partner Tom Jamieson), but he has also contributed to a huge range of programmes, such as Have I Got News For You, The Impression Show, 2DTV, The News Quiz, Loose Ends and his own radio sitcom Elephants to Catch Eels, to name but a few.

He is currently working on a children’s sitcom, Scoop, which he helped to devise. He is also a gag writer for legendary satirical magazine Private Eye.
