Trailer for The Power Of The Daleks SE.

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

Either way, I ain't buying it again.

Remember when trailers came out before the thing they were promoting?

They need to do a split-screen comparison video - this looks exactly the same to me, except Pat is now wearing a different pair of trousers.

Wish they'd let the people who did the Mission To The Unknown remake loose on this.

There's still the Season 4 blu ray set to come of course * - so they could always do something for that as an extra.

* not announced yet - just that they are planning to do all 27 seasons . . . that's right, Pancho - I said 27 - Paul McGann's going to have his own chuffing box!)

The majority of the changes are more about making characters more expressive, it seems. The original animation, as good as it was, was very stilted.

I preferred the animation on the left. Aside from adding fog that makes the animation less clear, is there any real difference?

I watched the recon as I've seen the animation several times already. Very good recon though I can't help but wonder if some of those AI powered that people like Clayton Hickman are using to restore old Who pictures could be used to improve the look of the telesnaps to a better standard. Just a thought rather than a criticism.

I actually wondered watching it if I prefer recons or animation. There were moments where I genuinely felt like I was watching it which never happens on the animation. Either way it doesn't matter as thankfully these releases give you the opportunity to watch both in rotations which always makes the story feel fresh. Hopefully recons remain a standard even with the Season 1-6 releases.

The new documentary is rather impressive as I think it was largely made in lockdown. The other odds and sods on Disc 3 are great too. Whicker's World was particularly enjoyable.

The animation on the right seems slightly smoother. Also the Doctor is wearing different trousers for some reason.

Tartan is incredibly difficult to animate so they've made his trousers plain in order to animate more movement in his legs.

Cheers - I was wondering what had happened to this.

The Standard cover is quite nice this time, but as I started collecting the steelbooks, I'm sticking with them (curse you OCD!)

It has been confirmed that this one does have proper Production Subtitles too unlike the previous animations. Really stuffed with extras.

Was watching a sealed Series 14 Blu Ray boxset on eBay. Went for £50 which I thought was quite reasonable considering what I've seen people pay in the past. Seller has another one for sale as well if anyone has been trying to get one at a half decent price.
