  1. Doctor Who Christmas Special and Fathom Events

    Me too https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Special-Twice-Blu-ray/dp/B07472TY5M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510628383&sr=8-1&keywords=doctor+who+special+twice+upon+time
  2. I was looking over the Fathom Events web site to see if they might have anything about Shada since they've done some specials for The Five Doctors and Power Of The Dalkes. While I didn't see Shada on the schedule, I did see that the Christmas Special will be shown on the big screen on December 27 https://www.fathomevents.com/events/doctor-who-twice-upon-a-time?date=2017-12-27 Trying to decide if I want to get tickets now or wait until it airs on Christmas Day and decide. Have to admit I'm pretty excited to see this. Trying to not over hype it in my head.
  3. Classic BSG Meets Nu-BSG in upcoming comic

    I agree about Greene and Olmos' respective Adamas. Plus, can't wait to see how the Starbucks and Boomers play out. I can see Greene's version being rather high and mighty and Olmos' version being like "You're still here?" In any event, I'm intrigued enough to take a look.
  4. Saw this for pre-order on my fav comic site and did some research https://nerdist.com/battlestar-galactica-crossover-comic/ Dynamite comics is going to have a story that brings together the Classic and Nu BSG crews. Given the varying personalities of some of the characters between their different incarnations I'm curious to see how this plays out.
  5. Titan Comics To Reimagine The Prisoner

    It's actually because of that Third Doctor series that I'm optimistic. They could have gone the easy path of putting together a story that had the big three concepts (the Doctor, Unit, and the Master) and gone from there by just writing any story with those constructs. But that story felt like someone at Titan did their research and watched more than a few of the Pertwee era stories. I say this because it was absolutely fantastic to see Roger Delgado's Master again. And Titan really captured his essence. The way his dialog (as well as the other characters for that matter) was written and they incorporated his "master of disguises" quality were brilliant. It's that attention to detail that gives me optimism that they'll do the same for The Prisoner. I rarely associate any specific actor to the success or failure of a show, but for me McGoohan made The Prisoner what it was. There are less than a hand full of actors from that era who I think could have done as good a job. Here's hoping they capture his essence as well.
  6. Titan Comics To Reimagine The Prisoner

    I agree that the AMC offering was crap. I'm hoping that Titan will be as respectful with The Prisoner as they've been with Doctor Who.
  7. Titan Comics To Reimagine The Prisoner

    I'm willing to give this a go and see what it looks like. I liked the original. http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/the-prisoner-escapes-into-comics-with-reimagined-series-from-titan
  8. Seems like the BBC has been trying for a long time to properly tell the strike-aborted story of Shada. First we had the novelization then we had a DVD with Tom Baker telling part of the story to fill in the blanks which was certainly better than nothing but lacked the flow of a traditional story. Now, the entire story will be told thanks to the wonders of animation http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/doctor-whos-shada-gets-animated-in-first-look-at-long-lost-douglas-adams-story This is very much like what they did with The Tenth Planet where they used the original live footage that was available and then inserted animation for the lost footage. Personally I'm stoked.
  9. The Maybe-Im-Willing-to-Give-Enterprise-a-Second-Look Thread

    I agree with Robin. Overall it's a good show. My personal favorite is season 4. I watched some of my favorite "best ofs" from seasons 1 and 2 and I could watch season 4 from start to finish without skipping any of them. When I was watching some season 4 I found myself wishing that IDW would do for Enterprise what they did for Jericho and do a continuation of the show (OK, so the Jericho continuation has been on ice so long its frozen but still ...).
  10. Saw here http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/kree-stargate-gets-a-new-life-with-a-10-episode-subscription-series that a 10 episode series called Stargate Origins is being prepared. It'll focus on the daughter of the guy who discovered the first Stargate in the 1920s. The series web site is http://stargatecommand.co/ (note that its .co, not .com). I'm going to hold judgement until I see more. I'm curious, but not intrigued enough to say I'd shell out money for this show. That could change is more details come out. Thoughts???
  11. The New Doctor is ... ***** SPOILERS *****

    I was thinking about what changes the TARDIS might get with a new Doctor. Regardless of the whole male/female thing, my wish is, since we're going to see the first Doctor in the Christmas special, hopefully we'll see his TARDIS as well. So, the fan boy in me is hoping that we might see a return of some of the classic console room elements. I'm a fan of the current console. Not so much a fan of things like steam coming through the floor. I'm thinking go with the brighter console room and the more traditional roundels in conjunction with the a modern style console that fits that type of a console room. Keep the wheezing sound as the time rotor rises and falls while the TARDIS is in transit.
  12. The New Doctor is ... ***** SPOILERS *****

    I was rather ambivalent on the whole gender/race topic. I just wanted it to be someone who I hoped would do well in the role. I was a bit afraid it might be Matt Smith V2 since that was put out there as a possibility in the grand scheme of things. As someone else said earlier in the thread he was my least favorite of the nuWho Doctors, at least until Clara came along. As for the new Doctor, I hope that with a new show runner and a "new in many ways" Doctor we'll have an awesome season 11.
  13. Saw over here https://mobile.twitter.com/bbcdoctorwho/status/886608420241117185/video/1 that the new Doctor is Jodie Whittaker. Saw her on Broadchurch. Excellent choice. Can't wait to see her at the console.
  14. Doctor Who Comic Specials for 2017

    Yeah.. Lost Dimension is looking to be my fav as well.
  15. Doctor Who Comic Specials for 2017

    Thought I'd share some info on a couple of DW specials Titan is doing. First, and already out (I think it's also about to conclude), is a follow on to the last Christmas Special called The 12th Doctor Ghost Stories https://titan-comics.com/c/911-doctor-who-ghost-stories/ I haven't had time to read this since I was tied up with selling my house and moving. Now that I'm settle into the new place I'm going to catch up on my reading. The next offering is s muti-Doctor event call The Lost Dimension that will be 8 chapters starting in released over 3 months. https://blogtorwho.com/titan-comics-lost-dimension-coming-august-2017/
