    @whisht

    Yes, the Doctor is rather shouty here. I wonder whether that was to do with Hartnell’s ill health in any way.

    In general, I’d say this is possibly the most ‘modern’ of all his serials. As I said before, it’s setting the template for a big chunk of the Troughton era and also has that Quatermass-ey vibe of early Pertwee too.

    And I’ll be…[Read more]

    Fascinating to watch this again. A bona fide piece of Who history on so many levels. I always feel that BG Who was at its best when ingenuity and commitment trumped budget limitations and I feel this is absolutely one of those times. The rocket sequences are a bit static and the ‘space acting’ is a bit odd but for me it works — although I agree…[Read more]

    Apologies to all for not being near a computer to save @craig having to do this. Crazy time.

    Sorry to hear about the redundancy btw, @craig. That sucks. Must be something going around at the moment (and we all know what it is) cos while you can’t make a freelancer redundant, you can tell them that there’s no more work for them come January. Do…[Read more]

    good luck with NaNoWriMo — always meant to have a go myself. Maybe next year…. Hope it goes well….

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @craig — Sorry to hear that. Obviously hope that it’s going to be the latter too. Hope it’s all not too stressful — although obviously it always is.

    Take care.

    @wolfweed — I’ve always loved that picture of the Voord with the watches. (The true reason for the invasion of Marinus? To set up a budget jewellery concession?)

    To be honest, I’ve found these episodes a bit of a slog, so I’ll probably just remain an interested observer for the Aztecs….

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic The Keys of Marinus part 2

    @wolfweed

    Yeah, saw that. Almost impossible to get hold of, I reckon. Though it may show up at collectors fairs and what have you. No indication of what this ‘signature collection’ might be though. I’d be very disappointed if it was just a collection of signatures, for example…

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic The Keys of Marinus part 2

    @wolfweed

    Cheers for that, especially the designs. I really like Cusick’s work, not least because it points to a time in the BBC’s history when it had whole armies of these guys who seemed to look upon what would now be considered jobs as High Creatives from a kind of National Service-inflected just-a-job technician point of view. I think it’d…[Read more]

    @wolfweed

    seconded thumbs-up for the colour pics…

    @bluesqueakpip

    So that’s why Billy was so uptight about the glass breakage. He was fearing it was going to come out of their wages….

    And what is it about the Brains of Morphoton that is reminding me of Blakey from On The Buses?

    @winston

    I totally want to see 12 meeting Susan just for that to happen….
