Still waiting for a local release date.

My money’s on Cup Week (the first week in November for you non Aussies).

Something to look forward to in that week because I won’t be able to go to the Cup, but I will be able to go into an actual shop and buy this. At least that’s the plan.

I noticed it’s all sold out on Zavvi so I’m locked into a local release.

Servo,
That's a long time to wait, I thought you bought from us pommies as your release dates are always a lot later than ours?
Instead of waiting all that time, in future can you not get one of us on here to buy an extra copy and send it out to you? You can always reimburse via PayPal account?

Thanks HGL.

I always buy the blu-ray sets from the UK but my love of the animations just isn’t there to warrant doing the same.

I’ve had some stuff from the UK taking up to six weeks to arrive at the moment anyway.

I can wait for the local release.

A good thumbs up from Ian Levine.

Wow, that's quite positive!

Do you think he's alright? :cow:

Poor Ian. I hope he's recovered from that earlier medical problem.

Not released in Australia until the 11th November according to Stack. Pity. I usually purchase from the UK but I'm not excited enough to pay the extra this time around, even with Ian's hyberbole.

Is it me or do the extra credits for the animation go on longer than the original credits?

And doe the CEO/Founder of the animation firm need to be credited? The BBC didn't feel the need to credit the DG, or their founders..............maybe I am just a curmudgeon......though over the years of the classic releases I have become very tired of the number of production credits on VAM etc.

That said I love this release(Monty Python arms excluded)

I find this release... Lacking.

It's not the same quality as 'Power', 'Macra' or 'Faceless'.

Certainly not as authentic as 'Invasion', 'Tenth Planet' or 'Moonbase'.

The team making this didn't watch Troughton.

The scene at the end of episode 3 on the animation, where Maggie Harris walks into a static, non moving sea, loses much of its power and shock effect due to the (lack) of animation. I suspect the static sea, along with the overly long arms on all characters, were a deliberate choice by the animators keen on putting their individual stamp on the story.

Much preferred the animation on 'Macra' and 'Faceless Ones' than this gimmicky attempt by the animation team to 'improve' the story.

I can wait too. I've more important things to buy, like Sons and Daughters! :D
(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.

The Complete Kenny Everett the week before sounds more appealing.

Maybe the animators were watching Brotherly Love when they did the arms? :D

The TARDIS doesn't spin when it lands on the sea in the first episode, in the animation.

Oak and Quill have lost much of their sinister creepiness in the animation, specially in the attack on Maggie Harris in episode 2.

I agree, in the surviving clip the mouths and teeth have a blackening effect that indicates decay and possibly the foulness coming from their mouths

In the animation it is too clean

Well...have to say it wasnt as good as previous animations such as moon base. BUT....its great to be able to see this story rather than listen to it. I know they did use some artistic liberties with the animation such as the giant sets and especially the animation of the seaweed. I mean the scene of the doctor flying the helecopter, there are giant seaweed tendrils reaching out the sea. I'm sure they were not in the telesnaps but I could be wrong. I much prefer authentic animations than artistic licence that adds stuff to the story. The long arm issue is obvious.

I have to say I did enjoy it the addition of the colour version and the telesnap recon is fantastic. Animation will never be able to match the creepyness of the original but I'm happy it's on my shelf.

Looking forward to the next one.
