Ian’s Newsround – 21/10/05

Only two and a bit weeks to go until the VII DVD, folks! Unless you’re Johnny Foreigner, that is. In which case, you’ll be interested in this update US and Aussie covers. As usual, the basic design elements are all there, but in a slightly different order. Apart from the background, that is. That’s always at the back.

But anyway, there’s much more interesting news tucked away in the bottom of the article. First off, the Series VIII release date has been put back to March 27th. Boo! But still, it’ll be worth the wait… the gift set edition will come with a skutter model! Excellent! 1:12 in scale, and fully whizzable. Hopefully we’ll see some test pictures soon…

In other news, Robert Llewellyn’s got a DVD out soon! From the description, it has great potential. And there seems to be an implication that Kryten make-up will be applied. Very intereting. All this information is available on Robert’s site, of course. But nobody ever goes there, because it’s so appallingly-design and useless.

Don’t forget that next Friday sees the launch of Prelude To Nanarchy, a new serial comic strip, which will run daily for nine days. Unless the rumours have changed and I need to do more research…

  1. For the love of Christ, let the fucking Skutter come with region 1 this time…

  2. Sadly not. Andrew’s said on the Webboard that “it was limited to UK and Oz. The USA distributor didn’t fancy doing it.”

  3. It does suck that we aren’t getting the skutter in North America, but the truth is if I want it badly enough, I will import it. The trading cards for Series VII though look fantastic…

  4. Speaking of DVDs, the Quatermass Experiment 2005 DVD is out at the end of the month. Did anyone see it on BBC4? And was it any good?

  5. Blimey! I didn’t know that was being released!

    Answer: *very* good indeed. Quite astonishingly staged.

    TV needs more live drama. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if more wasn’t being planned – the ones that have happened these past few years have been marvellous, and created rare “event” television – which is what broadcasters are desperate for.

  6. > Andrew’s said on the Webboard that “it was limited to UK and Oz. The USA distributor didn’t fancy doing it.”

    Woh, hang on – I said that about the Starbug gift set, not the skutter!

    The Stateside situation for the skutter has yet to be decided.

  7. Ooops. Sorry, Andrew – misread that completely.

  8. Great, I’ll definetly get it (TQXP) when it comes out.

  9. Andrew, I’ll write you into my will if you get it boxed with region 1.

  10. Oh well, got Quatermass today. Haven’t watched it yet but anyone who hasn’t seen it can check it out at 10:10pm on Tuesday and 02:30 Wednesday Morning on BBC4.
