Gary Russell - Podshock 161

Gentlemen:

A great interview. I liked the background sounds, made me feel like I was at the next table eavesdropping!

One thing caught my attention: as an occaisionally aspiring writer, I have been submitting pieces for publication. So far nothing has been accepted but all have stated that they are too busy to critique my work. How are you supposed to improve your craft when all you get is "sorry, this doesn't fit our needs" with no idea of why?  If editors want better feedstock, they need to invest in the fertilizer!

Will the 2010 Doctor Who Series Start Earlier Than Expected?

Will the 2010 series of Doctor Who with Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor be starting earlier than we originally expected? Traditionally, each new series of Doctor Who has debuted in the spring (March or April) since the series returned in 2005.

BBC News published a video of Richard Curtis on writing for Doctor Who today (see here). Under the video on the page, it includes the following in regards to Curtis' episode he is writing:

Filming is due to start in November and the episode is likely to be shown in February.

THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET

FANTASTIC! Okay I"m pretty sure pulp sci fic has been mixing space and horror since oh, the 1940s and certainly the 1950s and more modern horror/sci fi like GALAXY OF TERROR has the devil in space using tentacles to squash Joanie from HAPPY DAYS to pulp and then of course there was ALIEN and ALIENS and this seems to meld all the feelings those evoke into one nicely wrapped package while infusing it with a freshness, a pace, and...a creepy growing horror. The Ood, Sensorite brothers, are just magnificent, brilliant in design and image and so so sad here but also as possessed horrors...very scary. The actor who plays Toby Zed is very good, and in fact, all the actors are strong, AGAIN! The men are...also quite nice, too but so are the girls. Ida would make great companion material and Scottie (Name?) is very cute and pretty. The design is well done and gives it a lived in look or rusted machinery and tough space travel as Rose says.
