The latest Cylinder and Miserable episode:

2016-06-09 (Thu): A DECADE AND A RETURN

Today marks exactly one decade since I sat down at my old computer (not just my last one, but the one before that), began an impromptu scribbling session, and ended up with the first 11 episodes of Cylinder and Miserable.  Ten years later, I've managed to get Series 4 back into production after a long, unplanned writing hiatus, and after a gap of more than two years since I last released an episode, I've decided that there could be no better way to celebrate the show's tenth anniversary than to begin publication of the new (and quite possibly final) season.  So without further ado: sorry it's been so long, and here at long last is Episode 2127.  I hope you enjoy the new series!

2016-05-06 (Fri): TRANSFER COMPLETE!

At long last, I've finished moving all of the archives over to!  For the first time in C&M's history, you can now read the entire 2126-episode run of Series 1 to 3 uninterrupted on the same site.  Enjoy!  (On a related note, the Webs site is now redundant, and will be taken down at some point; please update your bookmarks/links/whatever to point here, if you haven't done so already.)

2016-04-28 (Thu): UPDATE AND APOLOGY

I know it's been a long time since I updated here.  I'm very sorry about that.  I did start writing Series 4 in summer 2014, and got a few dozen episodes into the project, but since the end of 2014 I've been somewhat waylaid by a certain other project...  Anyway, as of this evening, I've done some long-overdue work on tranferring the Series 1 and 2 archives over to, and I thought while I was here I'd drop you all a note to explain what's going on.  And to apologise for the unexpectedly massive hiatus.  Sorry for the hiatus.  I do plan on getting back to work on Series 4 once the Unbelievers pilot is finished, which will hopefully be very soon.


Hopefully, the join between old archives and new is seamless enough that you won't have noticed it, but it does still exist.  As of today, it's been pushed back a bit, and the entire Series 3 archive has now been ported to the new site at, leaving just the first two back at Webs.

2014-05-03 (Sat): FINISHED ARCHIVING

All of Series 3 is now housed in its archive pages.  I'm just left with the unenviable task of transferring nearly 2000 episodes' worth of older archive pages over here from the old site...  Meanwhile, stay tuned for extra features (maybe) and news on the progress of Series 4 (nearly-definitely)!
