It's Party Time on the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast

The Sci-Fi Party LineLast week I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Sci-Fi Party Line podcast. I was invited to come on episode 39 of the podcast hosted by Cat ( @fancyfembot ) and Eric Escamilla ( @Bullitt33 ) (we just had Eric on with us in Doctor Who: Podshock 169).

The Wedding of Sarah Jane SmithIn it, we discuss The Sarah Jane Adventures episode, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith which guest stars David Tennant, the preview clip of Dreamland (the new animated Doctor Who adventure), and the upcoming Doctor Who special, Waters of Mars. We even ponder on the upcoming new series starring Matt Smith with Steven Moffat. Plus we touch upon Torchwood as well in this episode.

Let's Talk Gallifreyan

Greetings, everyone.

Does anyone know if there is an exhaustive collection of Gallifreyan words and phrases?

There is a good collection of writing samples, (see http://nzdwfc.tetrap.com/archive/tsv41/oldhighgallifreyan.html) but words turn up every so often in scripts and so on.  I was curious if anyone has gathered them in one place.

audio: Hornet's Nest 3: Circus of Doom

Mediocre at best. Really. They should just let Tom Baker write these. Paul Magrs cannot handle the Fourth Doctor...at all. While this story is not terrible and definitely has its moments, it's not as good as either the first or second in this "story". It's very staged and Yates at one point seems to cry or break down...WTF out of nowhere. The "action" really isn't and Tom 's Doctor does very little in this story which really has a bunch of circus horror cliches and again, the red shoes play into it and not to good effect. We've got: midgets, circus ringmasters, killer clowns, high tightrope walking, I think (I wasn't paying attention by the end) a fire in a tent, a bearded lady, hornets of course, and...it's really not that good to be honest. You've seen all of thse things in other movies and TV shows including DW (GREATEST SHOW for one, where it wasn't very good there either TBH).

TIME TUNNEL fan fic

THE TIME TUNNEL FAN STORIES

 

Remarkably there are very few THE TIME TUNNEL fanzines or even short stories when compared to the other three Irwin Allen shows. More have been popping up recently but that doesn't go anywhere near to making up the count. One very early TTT story was a chapter-serialized crossover---many TTT fan stories are crossovers (and there have been crossovers with LOST IN SPACE, VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, VOYAGERS, DOCTOR WHO-circa Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor--about Tony and Doug finding home base, and V).
