Liam 'Stavely' Catterson is a YouTuber Vlogger and reactor. Even though he started his channel in late 2008, uploading fun videos before deleting them, he started his new series of videos called CatterBlogs in 2014. He currently uploads content every week, normally being reaction videos, deciding to make his channel part vlogging and part reacting. He gains a fair bit of Subscribers every week and sometimes hosts his CatterBlogs episodes with more than him. Usually, his girlfriend, Kimberley Fleming and in two previous episodes, he has featured his friends from College. Having a total of over 400k views on his channel alone, Liam strives to entertain and attract people to his content, trying to be one of the next greats of YouTube.
Catterson's main attraction for YouTube is his CatterBlogs. Liam Catterson wanted to be a Vlogger due to two reasons. One was because he was a big fan of another YouTuber called Charles Trippy, also known for CTFxC. The second and so he says, the most essential reason being, is because he wants to share his life with the internet, allowing them to explore the details of his life. His first official video was not a planned episode at all and was just to tell people who he couldn't reach about the situation regarding his ex-fiancee, Charlene. After controversy from her side, Catterson pulled it down on the return of Charlene friending him again. However, as she would in their relationship time and time again, he was fooled. Thus making his April 13, 2014 video, technically his first video. It was an emotional one for Catterson, as he would explain his hurt over his ex-fiancee and would be the start of his run. He then followed that up a week later with him explaining how he'll try to move on and would be unsure WHEN he would recover fully. However, a couple of days later, he'd announce on YouTube that he found a girlfriend called Kimberley. This would then follow up to her first video appearance with Liam.
In his series of events, he has spoken about his ex a few times
primarily as he felt he needed to tell people, including those who never listened to his side of the story and were against him anyways, what really happened. People would keep sending him notifications via Twitter about his ex and would proceed Catterson to make a video telling people not to. He has also produced a Q&A, in which was successful. On June 18, he would create his first CatterBlogs with his new camera, the Samsung WB30F which would replace his previous camera methods, the laptop webcam. Liam would then create segment by segment scenes as he now had a portable camera rather than filming via a laptop, which would excel Catterson's ability to record. He would continue to update his fans about his own life whilst including the entertainment purpose into his Vlogs. Most of his Vlogs are recorded at home, whilst some will mainly be elsewhere.
In the latter part of 2014, he did state plans of the future, such as his desire to create a fictional audio show, which is in development as well as the possibility of opening a game series once he has the PS4. He has promised people he'll try to produce weekly videos from 2015, but he says that depends on his own time as well. He will use the CatterBlogs as his main target to get announcements off his chest, as that is what he feels is the best way to seek publicity, as CatterBlogs are his main show. He made a Christmas Special, making two videos on Christmas Day (The other being a reaction to Last Christmas' Doctor Who Special). He ended the year with 400 Subscribers and a video announcing plans for 2015's year. He stated that he planned weekly videos which would go into a system, one week being CatterBlogs, the next being another video and the week after, CatterBlogs with the fourth week being another video and that cycle would repeat the rest of the year.
Catterson would expand on his promise to do weekly videos by making other projects contribute to his weekly line-up which generally consists of his rant series or reactions.
Soon in the early months of 2015, Catterson would finally open up a Facebook page attracting as of today, 500 likes. He uses the opportunity to post new content of his series, whatever he is doing, generally with at times, posting announcements.
Liam Catterson would host further outdoor events especially with the Snow Day or the One Year video, both with his girlfriend. This would eliminate the locked away method he has always had a burden on in his life since he has little friends contacting him on a daily basis, but has recorded himself with his best friend (Martin Arkless) on one occasion. Arkless would also bring the camera along to film behind the scenes footage, as he'd like to class it as.
In 2015, Catterson reached a milestone which would take him to 1000 subscribers. Achieved, Liam did a new video on that day to celebrate his milestone which he "never thought he'd achieve". A couple of months later, Liam would reveal that he gained to 2,000 subscribers. In the summer, Liam uploaded a special half-hour vlog of his holiday at Blackpool with Kimberley, marking it as a notable period of his life so far. He has also made a couple of vlogs with him appearing drunk, both also containing Kimberley drunk too...He also made an informative video about his life, his autism and his battle with depression in a video title "I am Liam Catterson" which generated support.
In December of 2015, Liam's laptop was completely broken, disabling him from accessing it and making vlogs and reactions. However, Liam had already purchased a smaller, yet powerful laptop to replace this. It did not stop him from making vlogs or reactions, though the process took longer as he'd be forced to use his older PC to render both style of videos. For 2016, Liam planned a series of gameplay videos which would test him called 'Liam Catterson Plays'. Though he did originally plan on making it a four-part series for every two weeks, Liam is currently placing it on hold so he can generate a list of games to continue the series and ideas, apart from Fallout 4, he has had are games like WillYouPressTheButton, Cards against Humanity and some PS3 titles.
His second priority is Reaction Videos as he had always wanted to do Reaction Videos for quite some time and got to do so with his Deep Breath Reaction Video for Doctor Who. It gained a lot of views, currently standing at 2k views and appearance on compilation videos of certain reactions. Mostly AdikTheOne's compilation videos. His most viewed reaction video is his Dark Water video which would reveal the identity of Missy's character. That was recognised as a pivotal comment from his fans, some stating his reaction was possibly the best one they saw. However, this is to be surpassed with a Game of Thrones reaction he did for Episode 9 (The Dance with Dragons) which today, stands as the most watched video in the space of 24 hours. Catterson revealed that he may intend on reacting further considering that is where his main draw stems from, though he always believes Vlogging will always be one of his top priorities.
In February 2015, just as Liam Catterson celebrated reaching 1,000 subscribers, he had the intention to start reacting to Game of Thrones as he was becoming a major fan of the show and expressed his interest to do so. However, with Season 5 fast approaching and Catterson wanting to start Season 5 when it began to air again, Catterson abandoned all plans to film reactions for Game of Thrones for Season 3 and intended to record his reactions for Season 4, where he believed he'd be allowed more time to edit the content in time for Season 5. However, a HBO attack on several reactors, Torchwood Boy being one of them had another blow to Catterson's plans and at the risk of not wanting strikes on his channel, Catterson would think of a way to get Season 5 up. Catterson intended that he was not going to let anything stop him from Season 5 and as promised, Catterson would react to Game of Thrones, Season 5 (albeit the first four episodes). He then returned to record Episode 9 and is currently one of his greatest videos of all time.
Catterson stated on Twitter that in between the end of Game of Thrones and Doctor Who's Ninth Series due to start in August, he plans to get involved into a new show to fill the time, which turned out to be Arrow and The Flash. His latest episode of Game of Thrones (Mother's Mercy) got into the Independent as he did with Torchwood Boy. After uploading Mother's Mercy, Catterson would react to the MGS5 Trailer for E3, which surprisingly generated more views and currently holds the most views of his channel. Liam would go on to make reactions a common theme, especially when he caught up on DC shows like Arrow and The Flash as he proposed to create reactions for the new seasons for both shows. He also would go on to react to every episode of Series 9 of Doctor Who, with the exception of the finale, Hell Bent, due to his laptop coming to termination. The first two episodes were blocked by the BBC, however Liam's reaction to Davros, along with several other reactions were published in Doctor Who's official magazine (albeit, the compilation made by AdikTheOne).
Liam would also react to film trailers too as he grew more to love Reactions. Currently, he has only done a few film trailers, which include Batman vs Superman and Captain America: Civil War's second trailer. He has also reacted to the John Cena Prank Call and a project devoted to his friend, Torchwood Boy.
