Oddly, while I appreciate the awkwardness between he an Clara? I do hope she will be going soon. This could really go one of two ways. My instinct is to say there's too much baggage with her and he to go forward with her and NEW he. But that could very obviously be wrong. Sarah Jane Smith did just fine with both… » 8/26/14 9:58am Yesterday 9:58am

My Magnificent 7: The Space Fightercraft Edition

So... And don't instantly tune out when I say this. This is by way of introduction. I've got a pal in Second Life who's getting into the Jedi type roleplays in a big way lately. He's building himself a ship, and he decided to show me the proto-model he's got so far. He showed me at a landing pad on Yavin IV, where… » 8/25/14 11:37am Monday 11:37am

It's still kind of odd though — the companion is usually the audience surrogate, and in a story where the companion is having a hard time accepting a new Doctor, you'd expect this to be a representation of the audience needing to warm up to the Doctor. But instead of the Doctor having to prove himself to the new…

Well, I usually find that I'm in the minority when I mention that I loved the ABC/King adaptation. People will look at me like I just endorsed Mein Kampf or a Uwe Boll movie. It wasn't so much a haunted house movie. Nor was it one of domestic abuse and alcoholism. It was BOTH. But more importantly, it was a story… » 8/18/14 8:38am 8/18/14 8:38am

(SPOILER) Looks like the BBC hired a fan in this leaked opening title…

So I'm cruising along, minding my own business. I know Whovian mania is really starting to ramp up now that the premiere of the first episode of series 8 has now been shown in Cardiff. So I expected to see a few clips... but while cruising one source I go to, I found someone had phone cammed the new opening credit… » 8/08/14 7:38pm 8/08/14 7:38pm

I cannot evangelize enough on the part of Big Finish Productions' audioplays where Baker reprises his 6th doctor roles, for the most part, sans Peri. The arc of his evolution with the oxford Elizabethan history professor, Dr. Evelyn Smythe show just how fascinating, kind and compassionate Baker was never allowed to… » 8/08/14 1:38pm 8/08/14 1:38pm

I'd say there were a hellacious amount of alternate takes on characters I'd like to have seen stick in Marvel books like 'WHAT IF' and 'EXILES'. But of all of the alternate x-ers over the years, I gotta go with the Red Rogue from Extreme X-Men. This was a Rogue who had a lot more control over her powers. She… » 8/08/14 12:41pm 8/08/14 12:41pm

Actually, there was open weeping. The BBC Switchboards lit the hell up. Waterhouse had to make a special appearance to explain to the kids out there that he wasn't actually DEAD and that he was an actor playing a part. He managed to go out pretty damn well, all things considered. I've never understood the Adric… » 8/05/14 3:26pm 8/05/14 3:26pm
