Saturday at the Con

Today was the day it all turned around.

I don't know if it was all the fabulous Doctor Who fans I got to hang out with, but man, my Saturday rocked.

I saw John Barrowman abduct and photograph a Spartan Warrior.

I got filmed for Doctor Who Confidential.

I saw Naoko Mori in a top that defied conventional engineering.

I got to wave at Russel T. Davies and Colin Baker.

And then I took the evening off to see the Mythbusters.

Which was a huge mistake because David Tennant, John Barrowman and Russell T. Davies all attended the Doctor Who/Torchwood screening.

And they snogged on stage.

Not all at once!

David and John had a snog and then John ran over and gave Russel a chase little smooch so he would't feel left out.

I only know this because the video was posted on YouTube.  :(

So much for my network of spies.

David Tennant and John Barrowman Kiss at SDCC

Correspondent Tara Wheeler on assignment attending San Diego Comic Con informed us of this little intimate moment with David Tennant and John Barrowman as they introduce the Doctor Who/Torchwood programming taking place at the convention.

Vengeance On Varos

1 (or part 1 and 2 for the US)

Okay the model work at the start sets this up but it also sets up the difference between something like this and THE SUNMAKERS, the story that seems most like this. SUNMAKERS had that location work which gave it a visual representation of outside and that IMO makes it real or as real as can be when setting up the culture. Unfortunately, Varos's surface does not seem to be livable and may not have a breathable atmosphere. Not sure what the thing that "killed" the Doctor in the semi-effective cliffhanger but maybe it was a way outside? Colin does a realy good impression of being dead but why would the TV controllers (SIL?) just turn if off when they watched everything else.

Friday at the Con

Dalek GirlDalek GirlToday was one long slog in the mud waiting for Sunday.

I did see Robert Downy Jr, Denzel Washington, Hayao Miyazaki, Cameron Diaz, John Lasseter and Gary Oldman, so it wasn't a complete loss.

No new Doctor Who news or rumors to report.

I did see a Dalek Girl

Pictured left.

Attack of the Cybermen

1 (or for the US 1 and 2)

This first 45 minute parts is...and I have to admit that I've always hated this story and considered it awful...is not as bad as I thought. In what is probably the most changed opinion and turnaround for me, I found this first part fairly engaging. Perhaps it was the going back to the girl-Doc double pair, perhaps the threat of changing the TARDIS or getting rid of it once and for all, or perhaps it was...Peri, I don't know but here, I found all of it engaging and even exciting.

3rd Doctor Figure Arriving in October

3rd Doctor Figure with DalekForbidden Planet (UK) has announced the availability of two versions of the 3rd Doctor (as played by Jon Pertwee) collectable action figure expected to arrive in their warehouse on the 30th of October 2009. It is going to be available in two sets.


SKY is a seven part ITV series from Thames that is part MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, part TOMORROW PEOPLE and part FREEWHEELERS or HARDY BOYS but not really. It is sort of MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH on the cheap but with more location shooting and less sex although the blond alien angel boy who falls to Earth here is, at first naked. Two or three kids find him and he's hiding in a cave. More on this series as I get to view it. It has the same feel as TOMORROW PEOPLE's early stories but only stranger...
