Not to be confused with the Actor Peter Moffat ! (who's spent his life working under a different name)
New Who S3 DVD set dropped onto the door mat at Phil's Death Fortress this am. Pennies under £50 at ASDA.com but the code ent10 gets you 10% off everything more than £30. If only I'd known this earlier in the week. Still it brings the Davbros box down to £62
Nick's art is just fantastic. You can almost feel the joy radiating from the Doctor's face. I'm slightly disturbed by his right leg - the knee looks to be twisted at an impossible angle.
I notice that the 6th Doctor paperback is finally available. I'm unqualified to judge 80s Who reprints, but the B&W artwork shows an impressive attention to detail. The cover artist took the opportunity to show Peri on the cover, though she only makes a brief appearance in the printed collection.
I do love that art of Nick's further upthread - he has nailed the character of Tennant's Doctor quite nicely there, and I do love the choice of angle he's gone for as well - give a nice "panoramic lens" feel to it.
Davros boxed set - far too expensive for my blood. That would be over a months worth of my DVD budget gone on a single item so I think I will be skipping that.
Given that I own much of the contents of the Davros set anyway, I'm not going to bother with it. I will be interested in the new Rememberance if it gets a separate release though - one of the few serials I would double dip on.
I suspect the Judoon's appearance is the reason behind the Sontarans apparently being dressed in blue now, to differentiate them more.
When the last series was trailed, there were people who thought the Judoon were Sontarans. I wouldn't be surprised if RTD & co saw the positive reaction and decided to bring them back next. (Personally, I'd have preferred the Sea Devils and/or Silurians next, or gone a series without returning villains.)
I see Christopher Ryan is returning to Who to play the lead Sontaran. I hope the character's name is Myke, with lieutenants called Ryk, Vyv and Nyeel.
A question: Did/Does "the Proffessor", the penguin shape-shifter, character continue in the comics? I remeber him from when I used to get the, monthly I believe, Magazine years and years ago. I liked him.
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
My Series Three boxset turned up today and I have to say the lenticular Master cover is rather spiffing. Well worth the extra 50p I spent. Just watching the episodes through at the moment as it seems ages since I saw them, very enjoyable - but then I haven't gotten to the Dalek story yet. Glad to see Tennant's video diary is included again this year. That was a definite highlight on the last set.
Picked up the series 3 soundtrack today for a tenner in FOPP. Like the series1/2 soundtrack, it's surprising how much of it works out of context.
Got this on a loop now. It really is good stuff and being all orchestral based and from the one season hangs together better as a CD than the previous soundtrack release (which was also pretty good). The Carrionites Swarm from the end of The Shakespeare Code is a cracking action track. It got a bit lost in the mix on the transmitted episode but just jumps out of the speakers here. Loads of great pieces on here. This is Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home is big sweeping epic stuff, The Stowaway from Voyage of the Damned is very jolly and the short tune that accompanied the Scarecrow/schoolboys battle in The Family of Blood is in here too.
Can't recommend it highly enough. Well worth ten Earth pounds. Most of this sounds like feature film material rather than stuff off the telly.
