    Well, not that bad actually. And the first thing that you’re struck with is just how different the TARDIS dynamic is, how low in the mix the Doctor is, as it were. In the context of templates for a female Doctor, this (and the other Hartnell we’ve watched) suggests to me that Barbara is a much better fit than Susan. Jacqueline Hill is once again…[Read more]

    @missrori

    Sorry, it’s been tough for you of late. And while it’s probably not what you want to hear, it’s probably a bit of a waiting game. As you know, it’s a transitional time for the show and Capaldi (and others from the Moffat era) will be in the process of starting new projects, maybe even putting a bit of distance between themselves and…[Read more]

    @trinajoanne — personally I find the best Who news source is the mighty @wolfweed.

    Speaking of which, I don’t have a massive problem with Who moving to Sundays and can even see the wisdom in it. Saturday evenings is just too much of a ground zero for ratings these days. Even if you hold your own there, if something beats you then it can feed…[Read more]

    @wolfweed

    that video is fascinating, as well as being a total blast from the past. I’m hoping we see more art-related documentaries from Dr Funkenstein in the future.

    Cheers for that.

    I’m loving these videos and what he says about fan communities is spot on….

    See, I knew Puro would be on the case. Cheers for that.

    @craig

    Very kind but I think @mudlark also has to takes some of the blame credit

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    @bluesqueakpip — I think you’re probably right but I just can’t help but feel that doesn’t help the skint parents of the ardent cosplayer who’s wanting to do the 13th Doc on a budget. (It’s not without precedent, of course. The whole JNT era must have been a nightmare for cosplayers.) And the cynic in me can’t help but think that part of the…[Read more]

    @craig and @wolfweed

    Yep, I’m sure AbbyShot and Magnoli Clothiers etc are all over it even as we speak. I suppose what I was thinking was that it seems a shame to create something so specific that it allows the cosplay companies to have something of a monopoly. Capaldi’s outfits and Smith’s early costumes were ideal for the DIY cosplayers. I…[Read more]

    @craig — I’m in no way a musical authority but I think I tend to echo your thinking. There seems to me to be slight differences with the Radiohead and the Hollies but nothing I would have thought you could have sued over. The Hollies just seems to echo the musical tropes of the 50s in general to me. But the Lana Del Rey seems to me pretty blatant…[Read more]

    @craig — I think you’re probably spot on as to the vibe we’ll hopefully get from Whittaker. There’s something of your quirky best friend in first year of art school vibe about her.

    @wolfweed — Yes, it’ll be interesting to see how they do the earrings thing. Maybe she’ll just arrive with them on a la Troughton with his gear. Maybe she’ll do the…[Read more]

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    I have to say I just don’t like the coat. And I think largely on the fact that it’s too costumey looking. Would much prefer it to have looked like a ‘found’ object. Won’t someone think of the cosplayers? (Not that I’m ever planning to cosplay as 13. Although I’m not ruling it out….)

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @wolfweed

    That’s a curious edit. Wonder why they did it? Was it the porn reference maybe?

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @wolfweed — video’s back up and it’s very good indeed.

    Cheers for posting…

  • I’ve been looking at Capaldi’s first episodes again in the past few days and it’s certainly striking how different he looks, but he’s certainly more comfortable in the role at the end, it seems. But what’s been striking me is how Twice Upon A Time calls back to so much in those first stories. His scepticism to Bill’s ‘reality’ mirrors Clara’s…[Read more]
