  1. I warrant a tilde bang now? Nice. Erm, yes. Hello! I do lurk around here quite a bit, but I'm hyper-aware of being an overly-shilling bastard, so I try not to be....while also occasionally trying to be. It's all very confusing. Although at least I'm not actively upsetting anybody by posting, like I am over at the Oratory, where I've had PM's over the fact that I've occasionally posted in OWA threads, and yet I'm not bringing back Legion. The bastard that I am. Back on Doctor Who topic, I'll drop some links to the WhoCasts we've been doing. They're rather fun, and we even did some rese
  2. Also worth reminding people that, on the same site, if you check out the Eclectic Podcast, we've been doing each alternate podcast as a special, looking at each of the Doctors. Next up is our look at Colin Baker.
  3. I disagree, too. I quite liked 'Love and Monsters', although it didn't entirely work. The main bits I liked were the two main characters in it. I even sniggered at the 'love life' gag at the end. Generally, I found it quite charming. And I kind of fancy the girl that played Moaning Myrtle and the girlfriend in the episode. I have no idea why, but I do.
  4. Oh wow, guys, you remember that TV series I was pushing REALLY heavy a little while ago that you all ignored? Guess you could have been ahead of the curve on this one, but y'know, it's fine. I'm not bitter or anything. Honest. Go buy it. It's AWESOME.
  5. For the first time though, it'll be in an episode written by Stephen Moffatt. This is reason to be excited again.
  6. You live in the US. You haven't seen UK Doctor Who fans. Asexuality is a better option than constantly getting turned down. Oh, and as a UK Doctor Who fan, who knows other UK Doctor Who fans, I'm talking about those other Doctor Who fans. The sad ones. Not the cool ones reading this.
  7. Read the Gay Agenda article. I agree, the show may have a so called "Gay Agenda" but it's nothing out of the ordinary. It's the 21st century, big whoop. Having gay characters is completely normal, it's not as if no one before 1950 was gay. Besides, it's Captain Jack. Who wouldn't want him? I know, but in amongst UK fans, especially those of the old series, it was a HUGE deal. For no particularly good reason. Mind you, since Time Lords were supposedly created by 'genetic looms', and (whisper it) "sex" didn't exist in the series, I think amongst some fans, it's just down to downright terr
  8. Hey all - I know the shill threads are below, but a heads up that we have a review of the latest BBC DVD (The Deadly Assassin) up at GeekPlanet. Also, we have a new column (Queer Eye for the Sci Fi) looking at the old question of whether or not there is a gay agenda in New Who. I figure this is stuff that fans of the shows here would be interested in.
  9. And nor would I. I enjoyed it immensely. There's a whole load of bad in there, don't get me wrong. The acting is subpar, the War Machines themselves look awful, and it appears to be based around WOTAN conquering one small section of Tottenham Court Road, but it's also a lot of fun. Hartnell's on top form, you get a VERY Tennant-like 'standing in the path of destruction' shot and even the surreality of the Doctor being referred to as 'Doctor Who' repeatedly.
  10. As daft as it'll sound, it was one of the extras that convinced me on that one. Tony Benn talking about the creation of the Post Tower in London. Oh yes.
  11. This is no longer accurate. For Hartnell, I have The Beginning boxed set (An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, The Edge of Destruction), The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Web Planet, and The War Machines. For Troughton, I recently picked up The Mind Robber. Mine's no longer accurate either. I picked up 'The Aztecs' based on your podcast, and 'The War Machines'. The Aztecs is bloody fantastic.
  12. I wonder if that's partially because Fox (I think) still own some of the rights? It was a joint production, and that may be why.
  13. All DVDs Hartnell: The Unearthly Child The Daleks Edge of Destruction The Dalek Invasion of Earth The Time Meddler Troughton: The Invasion Pertwee: Inferno The Three Doctors Tom Baker: The Brain of Morbius Pyramids of Mars Genesis of the Daleks The Talons of Weng Chiang Keeper of Traken Logopolis Peter Davison: The Five Doctors Earthshock The Caves of Androzani Sylvester McCoy Rememberence of the Daleks Battlefield The Curse of Fenric Ghostlight Survival Trial of a Timelord and The War Machines are next on my list. I have the Trial in a
  14. This was a lot of fun, I enjoyed it. Would have been nice if you'd checked some of your stuff beforehand - there were a lot of '...I think''s and 'I'm not sure...'s, but since you're in another country and all, it's understandable. If you want a hand with anything, just email and ask, for future Doctor Who related stuff. It should be coming up to season end right now too. The two of you have really grown into it, and it's nice to see Jen has taken more of a role than in earlier episodes (I don't listen to it often, because I genuinely don't have much time).
  15. For me, the high point of his entire run was The Doctor Dances. Knowing what we now know about what happened to his people, his complete, total joy. 'Everyone lives, Rose! Just this once, EVERYBODY LIVES!' Beautiful. I'll come back shortly with more feedback
