Maybe it wasn't just the character that was good at hypnotism?

Right, sorry if you've talked about this before, but it was just recommended me on Amazon, and...



...I'm sorry to say I laughed. I mean I can see what they were trying to do but it looks like a blow-up doll. And when exactly did Ronnie O'Sullivan play TV's Dr Who?

It's truly awful, isn't it? Especially when you consider the limited edition blu-ray got this.

I mean I don't like slagging artists off too much - I can't draw - but considering how stunningly beautiful Anneke Wills was, that's almost an insult. I bet she pissed herself laughing when she saw it.

I thought series 6 already had a steelbook release a while back.


Is it just to include the Chibnall logo?  Good grief.

Think it was Series 5 that had a previous steelbook (ten years ago) - that chunky silver one.

The Capaldi steelbooks were gorgeous but so expensive - £45 or so - that's just taking the piss!

Yes, there's no dedicated thread for Old New Who. I think because news and discussion about it is pretty sparse, this thread seems be an ok go-to. Don't think there are many in here who only like the classic series anyway.

That Anneke Wills picture is atrocious.

Guess this counts as old Who now.

Always lovely when a photo of someone who recently died shows them in hospital on their last legs.

Remembering a line in the Knockoffs section of the most recent About Time chronicle. In passing it mentions "the US shows that were probably influenced by PBS showings in the 70s/80s". without saying what these were. Any guesses? Voyagers? The Amazing Captain Nemo? Trevor Eve in Shadowchasers?

What do we think Tat Wood is talking about?
Ones I can think of.
MacGyver - blame Terry Nation, to the extent there's an episode about June Chadwick inventing Dalek-esque security bots.
Star Trek - The Next Generation -
X-Men - the Animated Series - John Byrne has said that Days of Future Past was a subconscious liting from seeing Day of the Daleks on PBS. He's been less subtitle in his riffs on Who elsewhere - the Minds of Mantracora....
