Mark Turpin, under the username Turpster, or simply "The T", is a member of the Yogscast and a good friend of Simon and Lewis. Turpster was first seen (in Yogiverse terms) in Part 9 of Simon and Lewis' Gamescom experience, although Simon and Lewis had previously starred in the 50th episode of the The Incredible Podcast of Amazing Awesomeness (commonly abbreviated to TIPOAA), which is co-hosted by Turpster along side Mike Schramm.

From then on he hadn't appeared in many Yogscast videos until the Goat Charity Thank You Video, which he filmed. He also appeared in the Diablo III Launch Event video, in which he dressed up as the character Deckard Cain. He travelled to E3 2012 with Simon, Lewis and Duncan, and appears briefly in the first few vlogs although it would seem he was the one filming them most of the time. Since then he has also appeared in a number of the Yogscast's gaming videos, most notably, The Survival Games series, for which he was partnered with Sparkles*.

It is theorised that Turps is the narrator of the more recent Tekkit episodes on the BlueXephos channel. His voice is normally heard explaining the sudden change in characters (accompanied by a batman-style spinning Honeydew face), he also, on occasion, gives a "what will happen next time?" segment at the end. However, this mysterious narrator may also be Sparkles* who edits a lot of Yogscast material.

In recent months, Turpster has appeared in a few videos. Including the Terminator Mini-Game and as Duncan's partner in SkyBlock Wars and in 3 Episodes of YogNews because of taking Strippin hostage in the trunk of his car. On January 31st 2014, Turps launched his own channel, under the name 'YOGSCAST Turpster'

  • "This is a channel all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down. And I'd like to take a minute - I'll try to be fast.

Chilling out, grinding, leveling toons, all unbeknownst to Ye Olde Goons. When a couple of guys, after I harassed, agreed to come on The Incredible Podcast. We started hanging out and at long last, I started living the dream with The Yogscast." (His Youtube channel description).
