Fast Return – March 2011

Right then, here we are once more.

LEVINE THE DREAM
It’s all getting a bit weird in the Ian Levine stable of digging up the past to play with it again. Some might consider Shada without Tom an outrage, others Downtime with added Sylv and a folly, and the least said about recasting pretty much everyone but Sevensy in The Dark Dimension the better. But revisiting Dimensions in Time as well? Too far! Too soon!

Mind you, if he’s into voice artistes for the new generation he could do a lot worse than look up this bloke…

THE SALFORD JOKER

‘Tis true, the makeup’s all wrong. And very creepy. But if you can forget the Weeping Angels and shut your eyes a tic he doesn’t sound half bad!

THIS EASTER, KEEP TEASERS IN YOUR HEART
Trailers! Teasers! Prequels! (By the way BBC, that word ‘prequel’? I don’t think that means what you think it means). The new half series can’t come soon enough – particularly as we run the great danger of seeing most of it before it’s even aired, surely?

DAVE FOUND THIS STRIP:
Nice. To the point, a little bit MAD, and not too precious.
 
GROUP CAPTAIN JIM BARROWIGHT…
…Hmm the name sort of rings a bell but we can’t quiteplace it. A nice figure though, and an excellent proxy for any WWII-themed tabletop game you might want to play. Such as this one. 

Back to the nu series though…

THE DOCTOR’S WIFE?
Words fail me, Mr Gaiman. It’s a wind-up, right? based on a wind-up? After all, this from the same season that promises to spill the beans once and for all about the identity of River Song  you’d expect there to be a bit of a cosmic story title shell game going on. Right? I mean, you wouldn’t squander such an illuminated writer on an idea like that, right? RIGHT??

NO MORE CGI?
Apaarently so. No new major CGI in classic DW releases post- well, probably post-Day of the Daleks. Of course it doesn’t bode well for Invasion of the Dinosaurs but we all knew that was the case. Times are tough anyway, better get used to those rod puppet dinos after all!

TOM’S IN NOW…
At least we’ve got this to look forward to. McGann might be out of the star stable at Big Finish, relegated to the regulars stable after the utter bloodbath that was To The Death, but heeey! Confirmation at last that Baker the First is aboard for some life off Magrs and non-BBC Audio action. AND we get some companions alongside too! Leela and Romana 1 (well, you would, wouldn’t you?) lest we end up getting ourselves confused with Unclehorse over on the NZDWFC Board we’ll cease with the obvious and posted earlier elsewhere news. But really, this we’re quite looking forward to.

And that’s yer March for the month!

    The Eccles impersonator was rather good – especially with your eyes closed to avoid the somewhat distracting visage. The tabletop game looks cool too, though I still think the Nosfreatu one discussed many posts ago is hard to beat, and of course full marks for deftly avoiding mentioning the latest issue of TSV having it’s second birthday last month, that could’ve been seen as a bit contraversial…
    … d’oh!
