It seems some people are receiving their S14 blu-ray, I see Shuz’s has been sent.

God knows when I’ll get mine, Zavvi can be slow to send stuff. I’m having a bet each way here, if it hasn’t been sent by the time it’s up for pre-order here I’ll cancel my order and get it here.

Anyway, I digress. Once people start getting their copies I may push Robots of Death up the order to after Inferno so we can get some impression about the upgraded version.

That’s if everyone’s in agreement with that. I’ll have to view the good old DVD version though.

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)

Then we have Robots of Death and then The Sun Makers.

Have I forgotten anything?

I only suggested THE TWO DOCTORS as a preferable alternative to THE TRIAL OF A TIME LORD.

That doesn't mean I actually want to see it. ;)


Well why don’t we skip both and do DMP after The Sun Makers?

That should give people time to see if they’ve got a copy of the Loose Cannon recon.

Because Doc Omega suggested SURVIVAL and personally, I agree with his choice.

However, it's for others to to decide what they think of the choice.

I was referring to The Two Doctors and Trial of a Timelord. Survival is after Revelation of the Daleks.

Inferno this weekend.

If we were live streaming this I’d be asking you to procure your joke teeth now.

I'm sure there are lots. Just a thought, but maybe we should make a dent in that list before extending it?

well we're certainly not sticking to the shorter stories so maybe The War Games or Trial of a Time Lord????


I reckon go the other way and do 'The Rescue'.

"The War Games" is a great idea.

Not sure if "Trial" should be treated as a single story?

I do rather enjoy the Rescue, and The Galaxy 4 recon from the Aztecs DVD, and the Aztecs

I’m happy to do The Rescue and the Galaxy 4 recon before DMP to sort of mix them up a bit.

I’m conscious we’ve had an 8 parter followed by two 7 parters in a row so it may be a good idea to mix things up a bit lengthwise.

We can do DMP later and I could go for something like The Moonbase or even Planet of the Daleks to talk about the new effects?

Still "Revelation" next week? (I trust there won't be any consumer resistance.)

Definitely for me - I'm passing on Inferno for now as it'll be the final story in my long planned but never done yet season 7 marathon, where I watch all four in order in the same day.

People are welcome to dip in and out as they please.

You can also join in with our mid week Sapphire and Steel rewatch, to be followed by the BBC Quatermasses.

So many good lines in that script. Saward really knocked it out of the park with that script, and William Gaunt/John Ogwen and Eleanor Bron/Hugh Walters were perfectly cast; Alexi Sayle, not so much.

I rewatch Revelations quite a lot, and it never disappoints.
