Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Y'know what's been the sweetest thing about #DoctorWho #Series11? Not a single cheap death &/or resurrection in sight, everything that was set up had weight & emotional development, & the characters were allowed to grow over the episodes. Instead of quip-idols, they became mates. - Copied this from...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Best Doctor Who news I've heard all day! All in a row: I watch a bloody brilliant New Year's special, find out new complete tapes of the Wiles-era are found, AND see the out of print overpriced rarity The Lost TV Episodes Volume One is being reissued for a nice £28 this coming March and can be preor...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Lovely season finale, a bit too slow in the first half, but that ending was everything I wanted and more. I'm very happy with how this season turned out. Over the whole season: The cast did a fantastic job, the crew too, the writing was heavy in some spots but a breath fresh air (FRESH I SAY) after ...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Finally, some new lore that wasn't referencing or retconning something! Today's episode was quite charming, plus a nice landmark step in Graham and Ryan's story arc, definitely what I'd call "a good episode on its own, but a great episode in the context of the season." Love the flipped effect, so si...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

You make an excellent point about The Doctor's helplessness throughout these past eight stories. Despite how there's never really being a pleasant time period in human history, there really was a kind of "security" to Doctor Who pre-1982, in the sense that, no matter what The Doctor & Co. are put th...

Re: Raggedy Ann & Andy Thread

Wait, six complete prints? Not reels, but six complete sets of reels? Seriously?! If they can all be transferred the compositing possibilities (if the natural warping isn't too bad of course) would benefit a restoration immensely! Regardless of that, sign me up for the restoration crew if the rights...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

Last night's episode was really gripping! It's been far too long since death felt like it had any meaning in a Who story and this one had me properly worried on that front (that it might happen permanently, not that anyone actually died thankfully). It's both parts fantastic for getting really upfro...

Re: Through Time & Space: The Doctor Who Thread

I feel the companions are going to be a slow build thru the season. A trio of companions usually takes the show away from the faster couple dynamic of the 70's and brings it closer to the slower group-ish dynamic of the early 60's. The Doctor stands out more because they're back to being the leader ...

Re: Comics Thread

Aw, that was a surprisingly endearing story, a pretty good example of longer comic strip pacing too. The classic villian-falling-for-their-own-plan story, poor Magica, hah. Also, that Jeeves & Wooster test comic from earlier is astoundingly good. I hope the artist gets to continue that in some offic...

Re: The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Cut Mark 4

While funny, I still must say: Oh, come on! Those are softball questions. I'm this close to making a Facebook account just to answer those correctly, haha.
