Strange Things Are Happening

Here’s the reason for the recent lack of updates. Our new website, Strange Things Are Happening, launches on October 11th. Here, you’ll find extensive Crumpet galleries – over 90 so far – ranging from glamour girls to scream queens to strippers and burlesque stars. On top of that, there are galleries covering pulp fiction (and non-fiction), cult movies, comic books and more. And we have an extensive review section featuring DVD, music, book, performance and much more, plus features, interviews, video clips and the latest news of the weird!

We’ll still be updating here… but Strange Things is the place to go for the full experience!

The Girls of Hammer

A nice video tribute the Hammer’s Scream Queens!

A Bit of Tit

A few issues of the legendary Titbits magazine

Debbie Linden

Debbie Linden had a thirst for success which never really paid off – her Page 3 career never matched that of Linda Lusardi. Samantha Fox or even Maria Whittaker, and her acting roles were merely as decoration in the likes of late-period Are You Being Served? and The Wildcats of St Trinians. She developed a taste for life in the fast lane, dated Lemmy from Motorhead and after years out of the spotlight, died of a drugs overdose in the late 90’s.

Edwige Fenech

Star of countless Italian sex comedies and giallo movies

Dirty Daleks

All those people complaining about the Doctor’s new companion dressed as a sexy policewoman would probably die of shock if they saw these classic shots of Katy Manning making love, not war with the Daleks!

Sadly not stills from a lost episode…

Penny Irving

Penny was the star of Pete Walker’s sado-shocker House of Whipcord and was a regular on Are You Being Served, as well as providing a bit of fluff for assorted UK TV shows, Carry On films and other British films. She also did her time as a glamour girl for both Page 3 and nudie mags.

Madeline Smith

As Madeline was the first lady to appear on the Facebook page, it seems only right that she should christen this blog too!


For those of you who are ‘fans’ of A Bit of Crumpet on Facebook, and for those of you who are not, welcome along to the blog version. While posting images and video clips on the Facebook page is all well and good (and we encourage you to continue to do so), here we can expand on the theme a little – with reviews, bios, general musings and, who knows, interviews. Oh, and we can show a bit more flesh too!

Anyone wanting to contribute should get in touch – I’ll give admin rights to those need them, or you can post stuff to the Facebook page and I’ll port it over if necessary.

Enough talk! Bring on the girls!
