Doctor Who - The Moonbase

With the Cybermen returning this week The Gallifrayan Gazette decided to take a look back at some of the classic stories featuring the Cybermen. Today The Moonbase.

The Moonbase
By Kit Peddler

“Funny. Funny. Go to all that trouble to make the men do the work. Why? Do it themselves, easy. They're using the men as tools. Why? Don't know. Yes, I do though. There must be something in here they don't like. Pressure? Electricity? Radiation? Maybe. Gravity! Now there's a thought. Gravity. Oh, yes. Gravity.”

After the events of The Underwater Menace The Doctor made the attempt to get Ben, Polly and Jamie to Mars.  Where they ended up was not Mars but in fact the moon.  The travelers have fun experiencing the low gravity of the moon until Jamie gets hurt.  Luckily there is a base on the moon that is there to help control the weather on Earth.  But there is a problem in the base.  A mysterious plague has swept over the base only infecting a certain few.  The Doctor has no idea what is causing the crew of the moonbase to get infected but once The Cybermen have been seen sneaking around it becomes all the more obvious what is going on.

Doctor Who:
Attack of the Cybermen
By Paula Moore

“Then perhaps you should tell them, because if you don't, they intend to prevent Mondas from being destroyed.”

The Doctor discovers that the Cybermen want to save Mondas but in doing that Earth must be destroyed.  The have the perfect weapon in doing it as Haley’s Comet is making its approach back to Earth.  The Doctor and Peri stumble upon their plan by searching out a distress signal which leads them to the sewers of London and a secret Cybermen base.   The Cybermen capture The Doctor and force him to pilot his TARDIS to Telos so that they can use his TARDIS in their plans to save Mondas.  On Telos is an old adversary of The Doctor as he finds out that The Cyber Controller is still alive.  There is also a wildcard in the mix as Lytton is involved in this also and The Doctor does not know if he is working for the Cybermen or the Cryons.  One thing The Doctor does know about and that is stopping the Cybermen and preserving the web of time by preventing Mondas from being saved.

Space Precinct – Unmasked by Richard James - Book Review

by Ken Parker

Space Precinct is one of those under appreciated TV shows that not too many people saw or gave a chance to when it came out in 1994. The show was watched by me for two reasons. One, it was sci-fi and two, it was by producer Gerry Anderson who had numerous terrific TV series such as Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, UFO and Space: 1999. Space Precinct was an idea that was batted around for years, first as a pilot, Space Police in 1989 and finally was given the green light a few years later. The show had its charm and despite some problems with finding an identity. Sporting a good cast, excellent effects, exciting music and all around superb talent, Space Precinct did fairly well in the UK but failed to attract audiences in the United States primarily because they were asleep at 2am (bad time slots).

The look of the series is very familiar as it appears to be a cop show but in outer space. We have sci-fi stories and of course, aliens. The make up effects were done by Neil Gorton (Doctor Who) who produced some excellent aliens including the two primary races, the Creons and the Tarns. Humans were also populating the cast including Lt. Brogan (Ted Shackleford) from Earth. The book, Space Precinct – Unmasked is written by Richard James, a fresh face in acting. His face would not be seen though in the show as he played one of the Creons, Orrin. Donning make-up and prosthetics each day, James would also get to play other parts in the show.

Richard James has decided to share his time on this show and includes a wealth of information about the early beginnings to the wrap of the first season. His point of view is unique and interesting as it includes his limited perception of the entire series as well as insights on what the show was going through with money problems and ratings failings. He brings a nice sense of humor and perspective that is not jaded nor over joyed with his experience on the show at the time. He understands, as the narrative goes on, that it was a job that might lead to better jobs. His enjoyment of these times also shows through which is contrasted by some of his fellow actors who were less happy with the series.

The book has little about James and concentrates more on his involvement on the show. The book also looks at each episode and includes information about each of those scripts and what he thought of them at the time. James also pulls mini interviews and statements from various cast and crew to augment the text which helps flesh out the structure of the book. We learn more about James as we go along.

As a fan of Space Precinct it was a surprise to read so much that I did not know about and it certainly made me want to go back and watch the show again. Richard James is straight forward but knows how to tease and entertain with his writing style. Hearing from anyone who played a character 'behind the mask' is always fascinating to readers because we really don't know too much from what we see in the finished show.

The book is full of behind the scenes photos and diagrams that punctuate the overall design which is pleasing. I know much more about Richard James and Space Precinct. There is not much out there about the show and so this makes this book highly sought after for fans. It is also an excellent look at television production from one of hidden but present cast members. Not only would Space Precinct and Gerry Anderson fans be interested in the book but fans of television, movies, sci-fi and the men, and women behind the mask would also find this book enjoyable.

Special Look at Marvel's The Avengers - Age of Ultron

Love the look Thor has when his hammer moves slightly when Cap tries to pick it up.

Also, who is that girl relaxing with the Avengers in the opening scene????  And no, it is not Scarlet Witch, Maria Hill, Black Widow nor Jane Foster!

Edit - it appears to be actress Claudia Kim who is a scientist who worked on Ultron with Tony.

Doctor Who - Earthshock

With the Cybermen returning this week The Gallifrayan Gazette decided to take a look back at some of the classic stories featuring the Cybermen.  Today Earthshock.

Doctor Who:
By Eric Saward

DOCTOR: Emotions have their uses.
CYBERLEADER: They restrict and curtail the intellect and logic of the mind.
DOCTOR: They also enhance life! When did you last have the pleasure of smelling a flower, watching a sunset, eating a well-prepared meal?
CYBERLEADER: These things are irrelevant.
DOCTOR: For some people, small, beautiful events is what life is all about!

The Doctor and Adric are having quite the argument.  Adric is tired of being teased and being considered an outsider and wants to go home.  The Doctor is furious over this as it would require going back into E – Space and through a CVE and would be really tricky if not disastrous.  So The Doctor materializes the TARDIS in an underground cave and decides to go outside and calm down leaving Adric to plot the course to his own destruction.

Marvel Vs. DC - Does DC have a chance to compete?

This is an updated post from a few weeks ago with some more titles and dates confirmed.  Included are the names of all the Marvel films into 2019.  We have DC, Marvel and the Marvel products released by Fox and Sony.

I always see this as a war between DC and Marvel and some of the release dates will have them battling for the Box Office.  It is interesting to note that these heavy hitters will be competing for biggest box office for the year not only against one another but against Star Wars, Terminator, Jurassic World, Independence Day 2, and a bunch of Avatar films. The superhero film will not be alone at the top of the box office and one will see if that genre can continue to perform strongly over the years.

Here is a schedule and some thoughts after.

Marvel Announcements - Avengers, Black Panther and Captain Marvel

Lots of news coming from Marvel including the casting of Black Panther and the two part Avengers film.

Some of these we already knew -

Captain America - Civil War - May 6, 2016 with Iron Man appearing. This is based on the comic book Civil War and will have infighting among the Avengers.

Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016 - This should star Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) which is a superb choice for this part.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5, 2017 - Yeah, this was a given.

Thor: Ragnarok - July 2017 - This was a bit of a surprise but makes sense.

Black Panther - November 3, 2017 - Chadwick Boseman (42) is set to play the title character but you see his introduction in Captain America: Civil War.

The Avengers - Infinity War Part 1 - May 4, 2018 - Wow a two part movie that will more than likely see the existing Avengers along with the new team being formed after the events of The Avengers Age of Ultron.

Captain Marvel -(July 6, 2018) Well, our first stand alone female superhero movie by Marvel. A rumor has it that she makes an appearance in the next Avengers film.

Inhumans - November 2, 2018 - a new group of heros.

The Avengers - Infinity War Part 2 - May 3, 2019 - DC, you didn't think it would be that easy, did you?

Doctor Who - The Tomb of the Cybermen

With the Cybermen returning this week The Gallifrayan Gazette decided to take a look back at some of the classic stories featuring the Cybermen.  Today The Tomb of the Cybermen.

Doctor Who:
The Tomb of the Cybermen
By Kit Pedler and
Gerry Davis

“Oh yes, I can when I want to. And that's the point, really. I have to really want to, to bring them back in front of my eyes. The rest of the time they sleep in my mind, and I forget. And so will you. Oh yes, you will. You'll find there's so much else to think about. So remember, our lives are different to anybody else's. That's the exciting thing. There's nobody in the universe can do what we're doing. You must get some sleep and let this poor old man stay awake.”

The Tomb of the Cybermen is the earliest complete story to survive featuring Patrick Troughton.  It was found in Hong Kong back in 1991 and was until The Enemy of the World was found with The Web of Fear (minus ep 3) the only complete story from Season 5 of Doctor Who.  The Tomb of the Cybermen opens up Season 5 and also brings back The Cybermen yet again last seen in The Moonbase (which is out on DVD with animated missing episodes 1 &3).  What is a pretty cool side bar for Season 5 is that it is known as The Season of Monsters.  The Cybermen start off the Season of Monsters in The Tomb of the Cybermen and also finishes it with the Cybermen returning in The Wheel in Space.   So in essence Season 5 is bookend with Cybermen stories.

Cumberbatch was one of three on a shortlist to replace him as Sherlock beat out Keanu Reeves and Colin Farrell.  Doctor Strange will be part of Phase 3 and will be out July 8th 2016.

Doctor Who - In the Forest of the Night Review (Minor Spoilers)

Doctor Who:
In the Forest of the Night
Frank Cottrell Boyce

“This is my world too. I walk your Earth. I breathe your air.”

In the Forest of the Night sounds like a title to a fairytale more than it does for Doctor Who story.   But then again that was more or less the gist of the story as it was full of fairytale references.  From Little Red Riding Hood to Handsel and Gretel In the Forest of the Night was one big fairytale.   It was a very different story with all the trees that had sprung up over London and the world for that matter and that was another fairytale reference in itself as forests are supposed to be dark and scary and the one that The Doctor was in was just that.   It was full of wolves and tigers and seemed to have over grown all of London and The Doctor had to find Maebh, who herself was dressed as Little Red Riding Hood, who had wandered off into the forest and seemed to be the only one that knew what was going on.  Like I said it was a different story.

Doctor Who – In the Forest of the Night Review (spoilers)

Review by Ken Parker

When fans watch their favorite TV show, sometimes they fight to see the best of a particular bad episode. Some fans like everything about their series while others are very critical. I think this year I have been critical but have also managed to see more good than bad. Overall this season has been a vast improvement of late and this is because the stories are concise, direct and less frantic. Peter Capaldi delivers a Doctor that is silly and jumping all over the place. He has an internal energy of wit and eccentricity that channels some of the best qualities from previous Doctors like Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker. This gravitas adds validity to each story and helps disguise some of each episodes shortcomings. “In the Forest of the Night” is and episode that has split fandom just as “Rings of Akhaten” did last season. You either hate it or love it.

The Avengers - Age of Ultron Trailer

Trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron on TrailerAddict.

Gerry Anderson's Firestorm Kickstarter - Still Some Time to Be Part of the Adventure!!

Jamie Anderson, Gerry's son, is spearheading a new project based on Gerry (Thunderbirds, UFO, Space: 1999) Anderson's concept created in 2002.  The idea of a team combating terrorists with high tech craft and weapons sounds like a perfect Anderson like project and this one will be done with miniatures, practical effects and puppets along the same vein as Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet.

The Kickstarter has reached its primary goal to produce a minisode and several stretch goals including funding for a new scene and a huge explosion.

The Kickstarter has raised over 65K pounds and is hoping to reach higher with more goals.

New pledge gifts include prototypes of actual prop weapons that will be used in the production. There are still some other gifts available from a copy on DVD or blu-ray to a real prop to your likeness being used for one of the puppets (anyone have some extra cash to send my why so I can do this?  Thanks)

The Kickstarter has only 10 days left but has already had over 1,000 supporters. Be part of the production or at least get some cool gifts.  The minisode will be made so your gifts are guaranteed.

Doctor Who - Synopsis For The Widow's Assassin

The Doctor Who Main Range continues on with the 6th Doctor and Peri.  This is the first story in the mini trilogy of stories featuring this TARDIS crew. It stars Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant in their familiar roles as the 6th Doctor and Peri.  You can order it from the Big Finish website.

Once, long ago, in a land of monsters and corridors, a fair maiden was captured, and placed in a deep sleep.

She was used to being captured, and she had a hero who rescued her on just such occasions. But this time the hero never came.

And the fair maiden slept on.

Eventually, a King rescued the maiden, and made her his bride, which many wise old women might tell you is just another way of capturing fair maidens.

And still the fair maiden slept on.

Then, the hero had another stab at rescuing the maiden from her prison, but he was too late. And, more importantly, he had forgotten the rules of fairy tales.

He didn’t slay the dragon.
