The Doctor will always be the Doctor, so there are certain elements you shouldn't expect to change. Personally, I think 12 is closer to Colin Baker than any of the other docs, with the possible exception of Eccleston. Mind you, that's Colin Baker done right, with plenty of snark, disdain, and bouts of pragmatism… » 7/13/14 6:36pm 7/13/14 6:36pm

Cool. At least I'll have a chance to see this one. Does anybody know what became of 1 (the film based on One Human Minute)? It's right up there with LFO and Prey on the list of "foreign movies I want to watch with titles specifically designed to confound all search engines." » 7/11/14 6:36pm 7/11/14 6:36pm

I'm not 100% sure if it qualifies as sci-fi, but Strange Luck. Why the hell isn't this show on DVD? It had the best premise ever, which was to have a guy who attracted really weird coincidences. If he walks into a bank, it gets robbed. If he takes an elevator, he'll end up having to deliver a baby. If he goes on a… » 7/10/14 6:02pm 7/10/14 6:02pm

I admit that I rather enjoy Doctor Who spoilers and set pics, when it becomes a guessing game trying to figure out the potential plot to an episode based on a few glimpses of location shooting. In some cases, I've come up with story ideas that I think turned out much better than what was actually filmed. (Honestly,… » 7/07/14 10:52pm 7/07/14 10:52pm

Stop everything and watch this trailer for a Froud/Henson short

Sweet muppet Jesus, how am I just finding out about this now?!? Toby Froud, better known as the stripey pajama-wearing baby abducted by David Bowie in Labyrinth, has followed in the footsteps of his father and conceptual artist for both The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, Brian Froud, by writing and directing his own… » 7/06/14 1:44pm 7/06/14 1:44pm

The voice sounds more like Julian Bleach than Nicholas Briggs (except for the last "Haaaatred" bit). As somebody who's listened to a shitload of Big Finish audio over the years, Davros' voice has a slightly different ring modulation setting than that of a Dalek, making it sound more like a vocorder with more of the… » 7/05/14 10:25am 7/05/14 10:25am

Considering that this appears to be a scene where Missy is arrested/captured by UNIT, I'm guessing any tip off scene occurs much earlier. The device might be something that she picked up from the Cybermen, but I agree that her appearance also conjures up images of the Dream Lord, as it's kind of a dark reflection of… » 7/02/14 10:57am 7/02/14 10:57am

Yay! Now we just have to figure out how the return of Moriarty and Christmas are going to go together. Considering that the events of the final episode of Season 3 occurred on Christmas and then (presumably) a couple of days afterwards, they'll have to loop through approximately 360 days to get all the way back there… » 7/02/14 9:01am 7/02/14 9:01am

Okay, am I completely misreading this scene where Kate's phone goes off, and Osgood calls Kate "mom?" I suppose she might be saying ma'am instead, but it's a bit odd that Osgood would have Kate's personal mobile otherwise, plus Kate definitely appears to have a very close relationship with Osgood (like when she calls… » 7/02/14 11:23am 7/02/14 11:23am
