Ploughed my way through the special features last night. There's a nice long docmentary looking at most (17 out of 24) of the episodes in the series with contributions from writers, zennia merton, Gerry and others. Unfortunately two of my faves - Earthbound & Death's Other Dominion - miss out .
Time to get going with the episodes. Since there's no new DW DVD till Jan this is an idealtime for this to show up. I did a full watch through when I bought the DVD set ten years ago, which I hear is now resident in the Scottish Capital with the good Doctor.
Looking forward especially to Another Time, Another Place and Dragon's Domain in addition to the above two.
I had an Eagle Transporter when I was little (complete with green nose & landing gear mounts - Dinky at the same time produced a blue Thunderbird Two). I always wanted an Eagle Freighter wit the winch and radioactive material barrels.
Back many, many years ago I was on the space1999.net mailing list I recall a Polish chap who would not stop banging on about how RING AROUND THE MOON was the most meaningful thing ever made. What a hoot.
I once wrote a terrible Space:1999 fanfic which is probably on the web somewhere. It was arse.
This thread is making me want to rewatch Season One again (no force in the universe can make me want to rewatch season two), which I haven't seen since it aired on a digital channel back whilst I still had Freeview reception.
I remember quite liking Season One and its cast, and then finding my interest dropping sharply as Season Two started.
Karl (Still remembers his passenger Eagle toy being one of his favourite die-cast toys when he was a kid, until all the main drive engines fell off, the verniers snapped and the framework parted company with the spaceframe...... What can I say, Eagle's are tough but it got a lot of wear over the years).
