Happy X-Files Day everyone

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

It's extra special this year being a Friday the 13th and all so here is a quick #FAQ related to season 11 as a lot of questions about it keep coming back.

1. When does season 11 start?
At the time of writing all we know is "winter 2018", meaning it could be any time before March. Season 10 premiered on 24 January 2016 so it's not impossible we'll have a similar premiere date

2. How many episodes will this season have?
10 episodes have been confirmed.

3. Who is confirmed to return?
David Duchovny as Fox Mulder
Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully
Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner
William B. Davis as CGB Spender / Cigarette Smoking Man
Annabeth Gish as Monica Reyes
Lauren Ambrose as Agent Einstein
Robbie Amell as Agent Miller
Dean Haglund as Langley
Chris Owens as Jeffrey Spender

4. Which new actors have been confirmed?
Karin Konoval (previously seen in 4×02 Home), role unknown
Barbara Hershey as Erika Price, a new major conspiracy figure
Brian Huskey as "Reggie"
A new "Mr Y" has also been confirmed

5. Will we see William in this season?
According to Chris Carter "William has always been in the show" but judging by the trailer, he seems to be more a threat than a saviour. If anything the vibes I get are that they're turning him into the threat that was Gibson Praise in the season 10 comic series (also available in exclusive Audible audiobooks). However no one has been announced to play him yet.

6. Wait, trailer? What trailer?
Here you go: https://youtu.be/IRdrt8nPyy8

7. I thought Mulder died at the end of season 10?
No Mulder didn't die, he was dying from the Spartan Virus and Scully wanted to find William so she could save Mulder with stem cells from her son.

8. Are the Lone Gunmen returning? I thought they died in season 9?
Langley is showing up in a cryptic video message in the trailer. This could be an old recording from before 2002 or they may have faked their deaths like in the comics. However for season 11 only Langley is confirmed (as he's in the trailer)

9. Where can I catch up on season 10 before season 11 starts?
Well you can always order the DVD / BluRay but if you prefer streaming services all 10 seasons of The X-Files are available on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and on Hulu in the US. Unfortunately Netflix discontinued it a few months back.

If you guys have any other questions related to season 11 put them in the comments and if I have an answer I'll update the post.

Buddhism growing in Scottish prisons

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

The article doesn't mention how inmates come across the Buddhist teachings and whether there are teachers going to prisons to teach meditation but it would be interesting to find out. I know Ajahn Brahm often talks about his work in Australian prisons and the benefits it has on inmates.

One can hope that this will help with rehabilitation and a downwards trend in crime across the country.
