Dragonfire 1


Wow. Wow. That has to be the single worst episode of DW up to this point and that's saying a lot. The villain's boring in look and desire; his aides are dull and over the top at the same time; there's yet another complicated and totally unbeliveable backstory in there somewhere but not yet revealed; the villain's powers are as yet ill defined; the dialog is awful, the sets are not even adequate  this time out; the music is okay I guess; and Mel and Ace have to be the worst two companions in one story. All this and Glitz too. Glitz drops his map and the Doctor swings his umbrella in a badly staged scene.

Dancing TARDIS, Par for the Course at Gallifrey

This video came my way courtesy of our own Tara Wheeler who is actually in this video. No, she is not the one dancing, nor is that her TARDIS which is dancing, but she and her TARDIS are there nonetheless. She quickly takes to safety in her TARDIS when the dancing one enters the room at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009). I know that is what I would had done as well.

Doctor Who: 200 Golden Moments

DW Magazine's "Doctor Who: 200 Golden Moments"

I picked it up a month ago or so, and I've found it to be utterly awesome.
As a person that has been obsessed with DW since this past winter, it has
been a great resource. It has great short sum-ups of all of the Doctor's
stories and acts as a reference guide too. Anyone else pick this up and
dig as much as myself?
