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.

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.

Excellent news. Two cracking Troughton stories, yes please!

Reading that reminded me Evil of the Daleks was intended to be their last appearance. Blimey, can you imagine. I still like that they had a good old rest before Day of the Daleks.

Fury from the Deep

Trailer  |  Unboxing

The unboxing video came up on my YT the other day so went to buy it and saw it wasn't out yet. Faceless Ones is down to £11 for Blu-Ray on Amazon. I really don't understand the point of Unboxing videos or how they get so many views!

It's quite nice to see the item in 'real life' rather than as a photo - so you know what you're getting -

e.g I spent ages looking for an unboxing of the re-packaged Peep Show season 1-9 DVD set, to check it wasn't a shelf-hogger with 9 DVD cases stuffed in a box. I didn't actually find one, so I had to risk it - but turned out fine (if anyone's interested) as the box is barely an inch wide - result!

Fury is getting great reviews. More so than any previous animation.

Hoping for an early delivery tomorrow.

Just finished Fury from the Deep. Rather good it was too. I don't personally think the story itself is one of the very best as some seem to but still a great atmospheric tale.

Difficult to judge certain elements as I know the story had a certain scale to it when originally made which, production wise, put it above the rest of the season. The animation seemingly adds to the scale which makes it difficult to see the original story within the animation. One to revisit with the recon in a year or two.

The animation looks wonderful. My only criticism is the monkey arms which occasionally look rather silly.

Hoping that the rumour of Evil\Abominable is true and this team have moved right on to Abominable.

Well its reputation is partly down to people who saw it in the sixties and partly the novel, which is usually rated the best Target book ever. And from what you can see of Mr Oak and Mr Quill they do look pretty shit scary. Like you say, very hard to judge without the pictures!

After a break to go through a handful of "literary" novels as well as some Tolkien and The Dark Tower, I'm back on the VNAs again now. It's quite nice to read something as simple and pulpy as these again, actually. So I'll be back in a couple of days with my thoughts on Theatre of War. Stay tuned.

Watched Fury From The Deep. Thought it was only alright. Wasn't too keen on the animation. It just looked really budget at times in terms of movement. There were points where you could hear people shuffling around but all the characters were still. Lots of instances of long shots of people just looking at each other. I felt they could have added a bit more movement to break the monotony.

Story was good enough. Sad goodbye to Victoria at the end. The original audio for the story must have been really bad at parts as the cleaned up audio was still a bit difficult to understand at times. Think I'll be watching the recons when i do a full Who rewatch next year. Only cost me £4 on Blu-Ray delivered due to various money off Amazon vouchers I had so that was good.

Can't remember what the next release is.

Matthew Sweet just tweeted out that they're back in production on the bluray extras. So hopefully some news of future releases won't be far away
