    It is a Big and Fruity Pot Luck test that only partly works but the wine is great – so it’s a pity I didn’t get to taste it during this vblog! That happenned on @bigandfruity Episode 35 – but ‘Just to my taste – strong, dark, full of fruit & spice’ sums it up. Sorry no Dr Who content this week

    Episode 291 - Dragon Devil Demon

     

    On this edition of the show it's sword and sorcery, twin magic and more dealings with the devil.  Right at the top of the show I give my take on a recent loss to the world of music and cult tv shows.  The popular video game franchise is now a new web series with the dvd review of Dragon Age : Redemption (courtesy of eOne Entertainment)  starring Felicia Day (Buffy, The Guild) based on the game by Bioware.  It's a case of double trouble with the blu-ray review of Jack & Jill (courtesy of Sony Home Video) starring Adam Sandler and a host of cameos in his latest comedy movie.   It's time to catch up the sexy necromancer with the audio book review of Graphic Audio's Lilith Saintcrow's Dante Valentine ; Book 4 : Saint City Sinners (courtesy of www.graphicaudio.net) as she fights for her life against the legions of Hell.  Music for this episode features the songs Bride of the Dragon by Man Bites God and Family by PuceWallpaper, they can all be found at www.famemusic.com. Other instrumental music is by the band Mr. Burns (www.mrburnsmusic.com). As always your comments and suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

     

    and then I hit the road again with Episode 292 - Toronto Comic-Con Special Part 1

     

    It's another on the road edition of the podcast as I start my first convention coverage of 2012 with a trip to Toronto Comic-Con 2012 presented by Fan Expo that too place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on March 10 & 11, 2012.  On my Day 1 coverage you get a nice variety of observations and interviews for your listening pleasure.  First up it's a trip back to the 80's as I catch up with actor Curtis Armstrong who starred in the cult film Revenge of the Nerds and the tv series Moonlighting.  I get a chance to talk with some independent producers of the new webseries Clutch (www.clutchtheseries.com)  and how they are trying to make an impact on the web.  I then get a chance to catch up with the Jason Eisener, director of Hobo With a Shotgun (which I have reviewed on this show) as we talk about the art of making a cult classic.  It's a short trip into the land of reality tv as I geta quick interview with one of the stars of the Celebrity Apprentice, Tia Carrere (Wayne's World, Relic Hunter) as she spills some dirt on the show.  I end the day by catching up with one of the hosts of Innerspace on the SPACE channel AJ Fry as we talk a little sci-fi and actually suprise him with some news.  Music for this episode features the song Black Hole by Victor Stellar, it can all be found at www.famemusic.com. Other instrumental music is by the band Mr. Burns (www.mrburnsmusic.com). As always your comments and suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

  • Doctor Who: Podshock 267 - Scream of the Shalka Reviewed, Conventions, News, Feedback, and more   2 years 21 weeks ago

    Hi guys,

    I enjoyed the episode and your review of it. My first observation about the episode is that there were too many blue eyed blokes... including the Shalka. How about piercingly brilliant yellow eyes or pulsating peepers of green? Anything but blue! I'm inclined to think that blue was chosen for reasons of contrast and visual excitement for a cool color juxtaposed over warm tones of brown, red, yellow and orange keeps the Shalka from taking on a monotone appearance, however there's nothing "cool" about these magma monsters. They define "uncool."

    One little continuity fluff... we didn't see Alison actually remove the bandage (or plaster) from her forehead before her Shalka "reunion" during Episode 6 (end of Part 3 into the beginning of Part 4). Maybe it was a really sticky one that had to be removed very slowly to prevent her from suffering even more pain than the injury it was covering and protecting? Maybe the scene ran long so they just edited it down? Maybe it was too graphic? Don't think so. While the depiction of Alison's wounded forehead was not overtly graphic it was visible. The last time I saw more "nasty" in Doctor Who was during Lytton's final appearance in "Attack Of The Cybermen."

    There were times when Richard Grant's vocal stylings as the Doctor were so much like Paul McGann's that I had to remind myself that this was not an 8th Doctor story. It happened a lot. Likewise the delivery of Derek Jacobi was very reminiscent of Roger Delgado's Master. It was eerie at times.

    Apparently the TARDIS served as inspiration for the Doctor's mobile phone, and yes, that was a nice touch and a mini-bridge between Classic and New Who.

    As to the production values of the episode I must reiterate (not verbatim) something Phil Collinson said during an interview which appears on "The Terror Of The Autons" DVD. You may not know that Phil was the Producer of Doctor Who from 2005 to 2008 for 48 episodes or that he grew up watching Classic Who, which is to say his opinion carries some weight, however more to the point is the remark he made which in effect was that you can't simply write off Classic Doctor Who because of cheesy special effects or because of how they fail in comparison to today's CGI effects. The makers of Classic Who did the best they could with what their budget could afford and technology could make possible. The same is true of "Shalka." It stands up very well when viewed in these terms.

    Is this story canon? Historically, yes, given that it was intended as the official continuation of the series BEFORE New Who bumped it aside.

    Happy Travels,
    Blue Box Bill
