I was watchjing the extras on "Planet of Giants" and they found voiceover actors to recreate the original scripts from Parts 3 and 4 before they weere combined into a single episode.
John Guilor did an impressive imitation of Hartnell's voice. I found him to be quite uncanny in his characteristics and general presentation. Maybe he should be enlisted for some First Doctor Big Finish audios.
In case there are members here that don't follow Louis on Twitter or Facebook - please note Louis is mostly offline due to the terrible effects of Hurricane Sandy.
Although he is OK but very tired , he and some members of his family have been lashed by this freak event which has caused great damage.
As well as water ingress he is without power or internet and is conserving his iPhone for emergency use.
Our thoughts are with you Louis and your family plus of course the millions of others struggling in those badly affected States.
Best Wishes, daveac
It is my hope you all are well. As some of you may know over on my own blog "Comfy Chair" I started sometime ago an archive of a Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius." I have a huge interest in fanzines as a whole but especially those regarding Doctor Who & Tolkien, even more specific fanzines from groups in the New York area. The Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius" is not entirely from the NY area but it is where I got my start in collecting Doctor Who fanzines.
My post today is concerning the fanzine of the Gallifreyan Embassy "Ambassadors of Life," which ran until the mid-1990s if I am not mistaken. I have a few issues courtesy of Louis and Ken but wish to expand my personal archive. Ideally I would like to create a digital archive for my own collection and am not set to make it public unless I gain specific permission from Louis.
If you haven't noticed before now (I hadn't) a new season of Red Dwarf has hit the airwaves in the UK.
The last time Red dwarf was aired was three years ago for the "Back to Earth" series (now considered to be series IX). It is here for a six episode run, forty minutes each (including commercial breaks) and the titles of each episode are as follows:
1 - Trojan
2 - Fathers and Suns
3 - Lemons
4 - Entangled
5 - Dear Dave
6 - The Beginning.
Episodes one and two have aired as of today (Oct. 11, 2012) with the rest to run wekly. The four main Characters have returned but missing from the cast is Holly (neither Norman Lovett or Hattie Hayridge) but in episode 2 a new computer is installed called Pree.
For more information on the new series of Red Dwarf you can check things out here on wikipedia:
By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here).
In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.
What did you think of their farewell?
Doctor Who: Podshock will be once again be taking to the net this Sunday, 7 October 2012 for a live-over-the-net show reviewing the 2012 series thus far.
