Quote from: H-O-W-L on July 02, 2022, 09:56:06 PMAlso, WRT what you said about the lighting in S1, a big thing they do is use more colored lighting, rim-lighting, and lights that purposefully cast shadows. As Thomas said too, later seasons use shitloads of overblown light and seem to light up everything in the scene. The TARDIS interior is a great example -- compare any shot from Rose or Boom Town inside the TARDIS to any of Tennant's TARDIS shots, it's like night and day. In Rose and Boom Town, whenever Ecclescakes turns towards the console his entire outfit turns almost solid black because of the shadowing created by the outer ring of radiosity of the orange backlights (and the fact that not every 'portal' in the wall has a light inside it, unlike Tennant's interior), and whenever he goes near the console an increased shadow casts over his face because of the strong cyan-teal neon glow coming from the console.
QuoteS4 tries to relaunch the art style with all that BBC3 style pink-glow promo bullshit of Donna and Ten in the container yard from the Ood episodes, but none of it actually hits the episodes

Quote from: H-O-W-L on July 04, 2022, 06:40:08 AMI actually think this is the worst-lit episode of S1. Lots of flat white fucking everywhere. I'll write more about this ep later on when people have their thoughts in.
Quote from: Alberon on July 04, 2022, 09:36:46 AMThere's a scene IIRC in The Chase where daleks are seen on a landing halfway up a flight of stairs.
Quote from: BritishHobo on July 04, 2022, 02:48:53 PMIt's a bit of bleak episode, on reflection. This mad cunt in his underground bunker controls the US Presidency and the internet, and after getting everybody killed, is simply replaced by the next usurper to continue the same mad power-trip. I may revise this once I've rewatched them (as it's been a long time), but I feel like this, The Long Game and the final two-parter (and The End of the World to an extent, with Cassandra) all make the future of the human race look very grim.

Quote from: Malcy on July 04, 2022, 05:43:03 PMNew shifts so more days off and been meaning to watch this series again so hopefully the weekend I'll do a 6 ep binge/mini review. For me it's more been about the feeling of having Who back in my thoughts rather than what I thought of the episode.
