  1. 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???
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Yeah.. Lost Dimension is looking to be my fav as well.
  6. 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/
  7. For me the most fun part was when Bill began referring to The Doctor as her Grandfather. I think given the retrospective tone of this season it was a nice touch. I think it takes their relationship to a different, sentimental level than recent past companions. Curious to see if this is a one time thing or if Bill will start to ask The Doctor about more of his past.
  8. Watched the second episode this weekend. Don't know if I was feeling nostalgic or getting forgetful. But it seems like some of the incidental music was more akin to the classic Who episodes. Between that, some of the classic Who references like the pictures of Susan on his desk, and from the trailers for upcoming episodes what looks like either a return to Mondas (could this be that rumored David Bradley as the first Doctor story?) or a return of the classic Mondas cybermen it feels like Moff is trying to be sentimental in his last year. I like it. Wonder if we will get to see that bucket list wish of seeing Carole Ann Ford make an appearance. Also, other than knowing that the Doctor promised someone he's watch a vault, did I miss anything about why he's at the university?
  9. Assuming the upcoming Christmas special counts as part of series 10 I saw this over on Blastr. Sounds interesting if it's true Possible spoilers http://www.blastr.com/2017-4-18/doctor-who-david-bradley-return-first-doctor-christmas-special
  10. ***** Potential Minor Spoilers. Trying to not spoil but just in case. ***** Glad to see others liked season 2. I saw some mixed reviews online but I binged the whole season in one weekend and I was stoked. On one hand it felt like maybe it was done given the way they seemed to wrap up some threads. But I just saw that season 3 has been ordered. I thought the prolonged use of the Trade Ministers visit to "our" reality was done well. In the book it was just a brief, one shot visit that just introduced him to the possibility of other realities. But the way they wrote his whole "other" family and that plot was great and I really felt for him giving it all up to go back to the show's universe and set in motion the sequence of events that he did. Also, the visit to "our" universe resonated with the message from the Man in the High Castle himself that Juliana was central to a lot things. Seeing her in "our" universe was nicely done. I can't help but think that in season 3 he may feel some what paternal towards her. But while these season played a number of thread out extremely well, it certainly has plenty of material for season 3: What will happen to Joe and his father John Smith seems poised for bigger things having come so close to losing it all What will really happen to Smith's son Juliana's sister Frank and the resistance Ed and Childan in the "reproduction" business In addition to the stories, I'm impressed with the attention to detail that's gone into depicting the alternate timeline. It all comes together to make the show a top notch production IMHO.
  11. I've been following the show from the beginning. It's certainly had its ups and downs. As much as I like the show I wasn't sure I wanted to continue after the loss of our dear Leftenant Abbie. There was such chemistry between the two of them and to try to reset that and start over seemed very daunting at this point. Never the less I kept it on the DVR schedule and have been giving it a go. This season is for all intents a near total reboot. The only other regular character to return was the lovely, yet tough as nails Miss Jenny. I was glad to see her return. First, I think as a character she's as strong as say Kira Nerys. Second, Crane needs someone he can count on and lean on. Third, to not have her around and experience Abbie's loss along with Crane would be kind of dismissive of that whole relationship. So, what do I think of the current season? When we first meet DHS agent Diana Thomas I thought maybe she was the new Witness and that we'd go through a long drawn out "This can't be" thread. But instead, we learn that her young daughter is the Witness and has been seeing some of Abbie's memories as "visions". By episode 3 they broke the news to Diana who obviously didn't take it well and we did get the typical "stay away from my kid" response so we'll have to see how that plays out. This season we picked up a couple of new additions to the Sccoby gang. The Archives in the town of Sleepy Hollow has been replaced by The Vault which comes completes with Jake who's into the secret history texts and such and Alex who's into mystical relics and gadgets. The group is coming together quiet well. This season does feel like a return to the first season. More of the mythology like we saw in the first season and such. The new bad is a entrepreneur type who's into mystical artifacts. For now I'm still enjoying the show. Though I fully acknowledge with its bumpy road and the move to Friday night this could be the last season.
  12. Just FYI, for those folks that wanted to see the color version of this (which was previously only available on-line or through the BBC America app) this Sunday morning BBC America will air the color versions of the episodes in case you're interested. I've enjoyed the show. Though, at six episodes, it may have had some low spots. I think four episodes is a nice sweet spot for classic Who. Anyway, just a heads up in case you wanted to set your DVRs.
  13. I see the stretched text thing too. Glad it wasn't just me. The "what if" stuff interests me too. I'll be on the lookout for this and went on my suppliers web site and decide to pick up some of the other Deviations one-shots.
  14. Can't wait. Thanks for the heads up.
  15. Really glad to hear this news and that she'll be able to continue on TWD. Can't wait.
