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....

R.I.P. Earl Cameron, the legendary actor who at 102 was also Doctor Who's oldest surviving performer. That accolade passes to Arnold Yarrow, Bellal in 'Death to the Daleks', who himself turned 100 in April.



Cameron in 'The Tenth Planet' - this was, apparently, the first time ever in any film or TV series around the world a black actor had portrayed an astronaut.

Was just talking about him with my dad. Had popped up on a couple of films on Talking Pictures recently; Emergency Call & Sapphire - both enjoyable.

TV yes, but Antonio Margheriti's Space Men cast the African-American actor Archie Savage as an astronaut, and there's an East German film, First Spaceship on Venus that has an African non-actor as one of the crew.

Managed to get the Faceless Ones on Blu Ray for £3 as I got a £10 Amazon voucher so finally got round to watching it last night.

Found the story enjoyable and it didn't seem too stretched out across the 6 episodes. The animation was fine although Troughton appears to have a massive top half of head at times. There's a couple of shots that look almost real and not animated at all.

The cliffhanger to episode 4 looks stunning animated. I'll be looking at parts of the story in the b&w version to see how it looks as well.

The inclusion of the Masters on the wanted board is a good thing about these animated ep's. They can add little details in without them being distracting. Noticed a few little Easter eggs dotted around.

Fairly light on extras even though it's a 3 disc release. Just the b&w option, 2 original ep's, 2 recons, a making of and a trailer I think.

There's also a commentary, subtitle production notes and all the surviving clips.

I looked at putting production subtitles on but they weren't an option on the menu.

It's listed on the back of the box. They're on the recon.

I'm pretty sure they are listed wrong. They are just descriptional subtitles for the recon and not actual production subtitles.

Yeah saw that afterwards but thought you had meant they were on the animations. I usually have them on when I'm rewatching a story. Great insight.

Would be odd I think to put production subtitles on animations unless they were specifically about the production of the animation.

Re: Old Doctor Who - Part 4

Just remembered that they don't include the production subtitles on the animations as they instead opt to include production details as a booklet.

The new Power Special Edition will include an uncut version of the original booklet as ROM content (it was apparently originally 40 odd pages of A4 before being cut down).

The while since I saw the story so don't know if it looks any better or not.
