Contrary to popular belief, Darth Vader was born Stephen Jenkinsop in Rotherham in 1964 to a butcher father and a gymnast mother. He had a normal childhood, enjoying sports like football and cricket, and done well enough at school to get a job at the news desk of the South Yorkshire Trumpet – then the region’s premier news weekly. After a decade of service which resulted in no less that one journalism award (“Least Spelling Mistakes in a Yorkshire Themed Article”), Jenkisop sought a new challenge and based on his lifetime love affair with the ocean, designed a new type of diving suit called the Vader. Unfortunately for Stephen, he was absolutely shite at designing diving suits, as he had no experience whatsoever. He became trapped in the suit on it’s first ever outing, able only to eat via a straw inserted rectally by his then-wife Gertrude. Years of isolation within his sweaty leather tomb caused him some rage, and in 1977 he finally snapped – driving a Volkswagen Golf through the window of a toy shop in Doncaster town centre.
