    Timothy Dalton should be in every TV programme. There should be a law.

    Wow, could this mean Gallifrey is coming back? I hope so, I think they’ve wrung the “last-of-his-kind” thing dry now…

    Doctor Who: Back To Gallifrey.

    In the end it WON’T be Gallifrey, the Time Lords WON’T be back, it’s all an hallucination brought on by the Doctor eating cheese. A cheese dream. Coupled with mutual masturbation between the Doctor and Master but with a more slapstick approach.

    Plus it turns out Peri wasn’t dead and so he goes to find her.

    Sorry, but I just find that phrase hilarious.

    Something we agree on. I’m hoping he’s a future incarnation of the Doctor.

    I doubt they would have someone that old as a Doctor these days. You know what they should do, bring back Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, ahh well, I can dream.

    So is anyone planning on buying ‘The War Games’ 3 disc set, it is packed full of extras.

    #100255

    I just bought the Trial of a Time Lord for ?11, then realised with a sense of deflation that it represents nearly half of Colin’s appearances.

    Then I caught a bit of Kingdom the other night with Colin playing a mad old Norfolk boy with too many dogs. So things lightened up a bit there.

    I paid ?39.99 for ‘Trial of a Time Lord’ and it was worth it but it isn’t half of Colin’s appearances, get some of the full cast audios, ‘Jubilee’, ‘Medicinal Purposes’ and ‘The One Doctor’ are all fantastic stories.
    As soon as you can watch the ‘Trials and Tribulations’ documentary on disc 4, the best DVD documentary I have ever seen, “I wanted to beat Tom Bakers record”, fuck Michael “twat” Grade.

    Can somebody explain the nazis in ‘Silvernemesis’ please. They are just there in 1988 with no explanation.

    #100543
    Dave
    Participant

    They are somewhere in South America, which is where many hid. One turned up recently trying to get into the USA and the Boer community in South Africa is apparently still harbouring a few 21 years after 1988.

    It’s not out of the realms of possibility that they got organised and bred troops that don’t think to open the box vital to their mission, whilst under exile over the 43 years since WWII. It’s just very unlikely.

    The other reason of course is that Cartmel was obsessed with Nazis, they actually appear in Silver Nemesis but they are mentioned, referenced or alluded to in one way or another in Paradise Towers, Delta And the Bannermen, Dragonfire, Remembrance Of The Daleks, Battlefield, The Curse Of Fenric & Survival.

    They are more allusions. The uniforms in Paradise Towers & Dragonfire, the genocide & Major Burton in Delta, Kane’s death in Dragonfire, I’m sure there are more but it’s been a while. In Season 24 there were allusions, in Season 25 he went further and in Season 26 he finally did it well.

    You could also argue that The Happiness Patrol owes a great deal to the work of a certain Mr Goebbels.

    One thing is for certain, Marleen is going to think we’re infatuated with WWII again.

    When watching a show about a time-travelling hero, you don?t want it to be about something, you just want to be entertained with what is an interesting concept.

    Andrew Taylor, one of the Jump Leads writers, won that Torchwood Twitter caption contest James Moran held recently, and as a prize he gets to have his name put into the next thing Moran writes, and also gets a signed copy of said thing when it comes out on DVD.

    So if the next thing he writes is for Doctor Who then we’ll have an Incredibly Tenuous Link between Jump Leads and Doctor Who.

    Pleased for Andrew, though. Lucky git.

    Only watched a couple of extras so far – I love the Stripped For Action features, and I thought the Regeneration feature was good too. Mind you, shame it couldn’t be held back till we’d seen the 10/11 changeover.

    ‘Remembrance of the Daleks’ is rereleased tomorrow with Beatles tracks put back and effects properly implemented as well as a spanking new restoration and a few new extras as well as the Davros documentary on a second disc. The cover and slip-case cover look great too!

    Anyone else getting it?

    Looks like the first fucking shots of Smith as Herr Doctor are gonna be on BBC Breakfast tomorrow, though it’s highly likely they’ll pop up before then. Excited? I will be if the Mickey Mouse t-shirt is part of the costume. I would seriously accept that. OK it’s not gonna be that but something as wacky as that would work, I think. Now dance.

    Just had a quick look on GB and it seems there are the usual rumours about things getting released at midnight. Probably a good chance, though, as I imagine the press have the pictures now and a couple of websites are bound to publish the picture at 00:01.

    Well it is much more than just extras, I mean just read this mammoth page of changes, http://www.purpleville.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/rtwebsite/DavrosBoxset.htm , you will need to scroll down a bit, it also had the Davros Connections documentary, well worth a purchase as far as I’m concerned, some fans paid ?60+ for this as part of the Davros Set so I am glad I waited, now I feel like watching a Davros story, might watch ‘Destiny’, hmm.

    So there’s nothing to report yet. No work for me this week so there’s no way in fucking hell I’ll be up for Breakfast News, and am I even that bothered?? We’re gonna be looking at the pics for the next 9 months anyway. It’s just gonna be Matt Smith in a fleecy jumper with a navy neckerchief thingy, you know, sparkling in the sunlight like Twilight and all that bollocks, and Karen, or Amy or whatever, in the bikini from the Countdown sketch on the Kevin Bishop Show.

    I’m sure you’ve all seen this by now, but…

    What do we think? The bow-tie frightened me a bit at first, but, I don’t know…

    Actually, if you click the ‘+’ and get in close, it’s the textures of each element of the costume that’s really nice.

    Oh, and we’ve got the companion’s surname! She’s Amy Pond.

    I’m suddenly very excited about the new series.

    Perfect for HD, which we can only assume they’re shooting series 5 in.

    I like the costume. Can’t be the only one who immediately thought Indiana Jones in professor mode, though I’m not sure Indy ever wore those pants and boots! Karen is so nice. Whether that’s her actual getup for the episode who knows, but if it is it looks great to me. I LOVE the name Amy Pond too. It’s short and understated but also quite funny. You can imagine the Doctor’s reaction to the surname (well actually I’m just thinking of the 10th Doctor’s reaction to it, which is obviously irrelevant…).

    Maybe the most important thing is that they look great together.

    #101293
    Andrew

    The first thing that costume says to me is ‘old geezer’. Which probably means nothing, but in my head continues to channel the ‘playing it old and wise from inside the youngest Doctor body ever’ vibe I’m hoping Moffat’s going for. A grouchier, crabbier, seen-it-all attitude – something that might fit both statements Moff’s made about the Doc previously, and his own temperament. (If RTD channelled his big, excited kid nature into his lead, I see no reason that SM might not do the same with his endearingly stroppy, smartest-in-the-room personality!)

    After looking at those, I was flicking through Doctor Who Adventures, which I decided to buy for once this week for the Fifth Doctor Audio CD that came free. Some lines from Planet of the Dead were printed…

    “Your song is ending,sir. It is returning through the dark.”

    It brings new meaning to ‘song’ – and perhaps a capital letter?
