Oh, and I forgot Shada


No worries. Kinda thought that was what you meant.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Dalek Masterplan.

Because it has to be.

Re Marco Polo - there is a wonderful colour photo restoration of that available on the internet which perfecty captures the stunning quality of the sets and costumes. I am perfectly happy with that tbh. The cheap animation they use on the missing episode releases would only ruin the story for me. Now if they included the photo restoration on the animation release - then i would be happy.

That said i welcome any missing episode animation release. Beggars cannot be choosers i s'ppose.

Great journalism there. The quote from Norton was from like four years ago and the animation team have since said that all stories could now be done. :roll:
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I was thinking that what they could do is release a MISSION TO THE UNKNOWN/MYTH MAKERS 5 episode animated set, and use the sole Dalek episode as the selling point (while also including the recent re-enactment as a bonus, (along with the recons)?

Then do a seperate MASTER PLAN release further down the line?
