Re: Were Any of the NEW WHO Doctors Miscast?

Wow, I googled Marmite and there's actually a store near me that sells it! Basically salty, spreadable beer? Hmmmm. Just don't do what an Indian colleague of mine did and mistake it for chocolate spread and lather it on your toast! :lol: It has to be spread thinly. As for the casting of Eccleston, ...

Re: What Would it Take for You Switch On to Doctor Who?

What would it take for me to start watching the new series again?

A TARDIS to take me back to 22 November 1963.

Re: The WORST movie you've ever seen! (Merged)

Highlander 5: The Source was an abysmal attempt at a film Let's be honest, you could say the same about any of the Highlander sequels! The J J Abram's STAR TREK efforts.... Up there with dysentery for entertainment value.. Anything JJ Abrams touches turns to liquid turd these days. Speaking of whic...

Re: THAT MCGANN TARDIS: Your View

I'd take the classic console rooms over the 8th Doctor's every time. However, I'd take the 8th Doctor's console room over every Nu Who variant except maybe the later Matt Smith and Capaldi ones, which were of course the ones most similar to the classic designs. The console room has changed many time...

Re: SERIES 12 SPOILERS

There are two icons of Doctor Who, recognisable everywhere by people who've never seen the series. Lose them and it's lost it's identity and only a fool would allow it. The Dalek and the Police Box. The latter specifically says 'Doctor' no matter 'who' plays the part. It looks like they've designed...

Re: THE TARDIS EXTERIOR: Is Something Going to Happen to It?

The obvious choice. (Still "free for the use of the public", too.) https://mayastestblog.files.wordpress.com/2020/05/dixi-toilet-dixi-loo-mobile-toilet-thumbnail.jpg Perfect. A gender neutral place where Moffat, Chibnall and their ilk can go take a dump all over the remnants of a once-bel...

Re: Martial Arts Films

I generally enjoy Jackie Chan movies especially the ones he made in the 80s and 90s before Rumble in the Bronx finally gave him his big break into mainstream America. The films he made with Samo Hung and Yuen Biao are a delight, my favourite being Project A which features the best barroom brawl ever...

Re: Robin of Sherwood (1984)

The way they handled the transition from Praed to Connery was superb. A great sendoff for one and a great introductory story for the other. So much better than a character just suddenly disappearing or worse being recast. And the new 'Robin' wasn't immediately referred to by that name either. Being ...

Re: Most Pointless Remake

There are so many more that could be on this list. Robocop springs to mind. Like Total Recall they lost an important element from the original. In Robocop's case it was the satircal humour with all those commercials. You could also add Star Wars - The Force Awakens since it's basically a remake of S...

Re: Do You Consider McGann's Doctor to be Canon?

There were obvious issues with the story, but it's also clear that it continues the original series thanks to McCoy's appearance and regeneration. McGann was also included in Nu Who, not just in the 50th anniversary either but in the 'numbering' even though that was rendered nonsensical (even before...

Re: Rewatch Doctor Who: The Robots of Death

Great story with good quality production values and effects for their day. The robots themselves are fantastic, with a memorable design and consistent, single-paced movements. Marks lost for some terrible acting by Tania Rogers as Zilda and the tin foil around the robots' feet! As has been said, the...

Re: Most Pointless Remake

Psycho for me because, if I recall correctly, it was a shot-for-shot remake of Hitchcock's original just filmed in colour.

Re: RTD: The Doctor Can Now Regenerate into Animals

Does this mean the Doctor is into bestiality then?! :shock:

Re: The BEST movie you've never seen

I have to go with "Citizen Kane" too. We taped it years ago, on the basis that it's supposed to be very good, and occasionally we think we ought to watch it, but so far we've never got round to doing so. GOOD. It's not just me, then. <phew!> I watched it for the first time just the other ...

Re: Rate "Doctor Who: The TV Movie" (1996)

The movie is certainly no worse than most of the new series. It looks really good, there are some great moments and Paul McGann knocks it out of the park. It's such a shame they cast Eccleston rather than letting McGann have another go. There was nothing that Eccleston did in his one year in the rol...
