Just finished watching The Curse of Fenric which I bought today.


A jolly good story, did you watch the TV version or the extended version on disk 2?

Such a shame they finished the 'old' Who when they did. I think they were on the cusp of some really spectacular stories.


I'm not 100% sure about that, but it is odd how many parallels you can draw between the final two seasons of McCoy's era and New Who.

I watched the extended version, I'll have to watch the older version for comparison, but I loved the score, it seemed less tinny than I remember it.

I was thinking that very same thing, especially Human Nature/Family of Blood. I would now like to see that filmed again, with Seven instead of Ten (as it was in the book anyway).

It also made me think that the BBC were pillocks for showing the stories of that last season out of order - Fenric should have been the first story of that series, not the penultimate one - Ace's comment about the 'scary' house in Perivale would have had more weight if Fenric had been shown before 'Ghost Light'.

I would have to agree with you there. I thought they had some fantastic stories and McCoy was really beginning to "own" the role. I was mortified when they took it off the air...

However, what a final speech for the end of a show...

"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning. Where the
seas sleep and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song.
Somewhere there's danger. Somwhere there's injustice. And somewhere else the
tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do."

I still think they could bring McCoy back for an episode. He hasn't aged that much and would be cool to see the professor back in action again, maybe fight a giant Haribo monster this time. wink.gif

Sorry if this has been linked here before but it is superb. The Ten Doctors comic strip.

Gonna bump my own post as the last few instalment of the strip are worth reading even if you can't be arsed with the rest. The Grace Holloway/Romana scene is comedy gold. biggrin.gif

Apparently DWM issued a fake cover to keep this one under wraps. I'm not sure why, it's not that revelatory.



On the other hand... FREE POSTER?!!

It was shown earlier tonight, and is on the official website here

I hate to jinx it, but it looks pretty good. I know I'm terribly biased. Is the Arthur C Clarke line a deliberate homage, or plagiarism I wonder?

The extra footage from 'Silence in the Library' looks much more promising, and actually rather terrifying.

Hmm, in two minds about the trailer, looks good, but I know RTD wrote the episodes, so how good will it really be?

Past that, the shaded Dalek, it's so obviously Davros isn't it?!

Plot Synopsis

One hundred years ago, the universe's greatest library was sealed off, leaving only one warning: "Count the shadows". But now, the shadows are moving again.
As Russell T Davies's Bafta Award-winning time-travelling drama continues, the Doctor and Donna must uncover the terrible truth behind the Nodes and the horrifying Data Ghost, to find the library's secret. With guest stars Alex Kingston, Colin Salmon and Steve Pemberton.

Written by Stephen Moffat.



Airs on Saturday 31st May at 7:00pm.
