    So as part of "Totally Doctor Who", apparently, they're doing a 3-4 minute animated series.

    Anyone seen it?

    It was pretty good, for a starting episode. A bit quick, but the animation was very nice, especially for Balthesar or whatever his name was. The ship was awesome... too bad... oh well...

    Is this going to be a weekly thing, does anyone know?

    Sean.

    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    Yes, it's to run weekly over the course of series 3 with the complete story being shown as a single show after its episodic run.

    There was discussion about it here under the topic "Too much??"

    This will be a 13 part weekly run on Monday afternoons. The competition part of this series of Totally is better thought out and based on team tasks and points instead of elimination rounds for individuals. Much better for the kids in my opinion.

    The Doctor and Martha seemed a bit too cocky in the first installment.

    Was there an Episode 6 of the Infinite Quest this week (i.e. was there a Totally Doctor Who episode this week) or is this postponed until next week as well like the proper Series?

    Just watched the whole of "the Infinite Quest" (the red-eye finally came in!). I enjoyed it very much, and was just wondering what others thought about it. What I liked the most was the ability to have better aliens/robots than we usually see in a DW episode. As far as the story goes, I was not greatly impressed, but I was watching it with the knowledge that it was pieced together from shorter stories that were posted on-line. There were also tie-ins to series 3 and the classic series.

    Did you say "74,384,338 to 1 against"? That's my lucky number!

    It was a regular segment on Totally Doctor Who on CBBC, where it was first broadcast.

    Although a lot of the character designs and settings were excellent (the oil rigs were my favorites), the series really suffered from poor animation of the Doctor and Martha. Basically in every scene, they stand still and deliver their lines. If you close your eyes and listen to the dialogue in the first scene, and imagine what it should look like, you'll see the Doctor bounding around Baltazaar's ship, examining things, whipping out his glasses, making faces at things, and doing it all with the boundless energy that Tennant brings to the role. But though all of that is fully present in his voice, it doesn't come through in the animation at all. This was a severe problem and it detracted from the overall experience which otherwise might have been great.

    tawm.net: read it. (please?)

    I'd agree. While I think the graphic design looked stunning and I like simple line animation, I think the movement of the characters had a internet Flash animation feel. When your dealing with real-time broadcasting and no bandwidth issues to bog you down then the objects and characters should move a little more. I hope that they explore animation more though.

    I thought it was okay, but not great. I liked the overall design, but I felt that the story was lacking substance. However, this may be more due to the fact that it was originally a bunch of 3 minute episodes and there is only so much substance that can be included in a 3 minute storyline.

    In some respects it felt like the DVD of Season One of Star Wars: Clone Wars. That too was a collection of three minute stories that when viewed back to back told a more complete story. Clone Wars realized the limitation of this during the first season and expanded to 15 minute stories for the second season. Maybe the BBC will do something similar if they do a second season of an animated storyline.

    I'm listening to the Infinite Quest ep of Podshock right now (DaveAC was just finishing up) and people are talking about possibilities for future animated stories. Animating other Doctors was mentioned, but I'm suprised no one has mentioned the possibility of using an animated adventure to tell a multi-Doctor story bridging the old and new series. As was stated, Davison, C. Baker, McCoy, and McGann are already doing the Big Finish stories, so I think a story featuring any or all of them with David Tennant would be fantastic. You could maybe even get Eccleston to come in and read a line or two if he doesn't want to fully take part in it. His Doctor could get stuck in a time eddy or something like Tom Baker's did in The Five Doctors. I know RTD said he didn't want to do a multi-Doctor story, but I think an animated story would be an acceptable exception.

    Now I'll go finish listening to the final 18 minutes of the podcast. If it turns out someone brought this up and I just didn't hear it yet, my apologies. I was just so eager to post it so I wouldn't forget. Big Grin

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    That's what I like - a little respect! - waiting 'til after my bit before you stop to post Wink

    But yes - I'd love a multi-doctor story - 'The Six Doctors!'
