BEHIND THE STORY with PHIL WHITMORE “SPACE AMULET” I’d known (writer) Aaron for years, so it wasn’t a great surprise when he wrote not one, not two, but THREE “Mr Custa” stories for the radio. The first story “Space Amulet”, I think was inspired by my original “Mr Custa” movie script (never made (yet!), originally written in 2001), which involved the intergalactic quest to recapture a lost space amulet. I remember Aaron saying at the time he wanted to have a go at writing this story. Aaron’s story was very different to “the movie script” and featured the big-chinned villain Forsyth, who was played by Aaron. My favourite thing about this story however was the giant “woolly ogre” - Fluffy. Aaron said at the time he imagined it to be “a bit like the Honey Monster, but giant and red” Big enough to comfortably swallow three people and a fly and still not get indigestion.
