Man, I wish this board had the 'Like' button, because this is pure brilliance! :applause:

In response I also instinctively looked for a like button to this. 

I love the idea...

Ideas for New Heresy Models / Re: New Doctor
« on: February 04, 2014, 10:05:14 PM »
So will you ho for this pose? I actually like it, very generic for a wide range of sci fi type things

 I agree the pose seems (at first glance) to be rather good for a dynamic pose.  Could also work with a pair of hand swaps for guns and even a sonic?

When did Sky 1 do series 2.  Saw series one, but only seem to see adverts for the stuff on Atlantic which is bugger all help for someone on Virgin.

Doctor Who / Re: Unavoidable spoilers for 50th Anniversary

OK... I have a theory.

John Hurts character in 50th special.... its the Dr....

various theories floating around... but I think its THE Doctor in ALL his regenerations combined.

If you look at the outfit its an amalgamation of lots of previous outfits.

What else do you think?

Could be...  I have another one for you...  She saw all the doctors regenerations, as did we...  Apart from McGann.  What if Hurt is playing a much older 8th  doctor?

Suggestions (HF) / Re: Father Ted and friends

I'd back this one as long as they were completely un-armed... not tooled up adventurers.

Not completely unarmed.  A handheld sign or two and a Golden Cleric.

"Down with this sort of thing."

As a helicopter techy, I am looking at the design and thinking "why have a fenistron when there doesn't appear to be any reason to counter a torque reaction generated by a rotor?"

I can see that it would be good for Yaw control but it would also be highly inefficient to have a fenistron rotating constantly with neutral pitch on the blades. It would also be ridiculous to keep stopping and starting it because it would not have an instant control effect...


Pick up last nights Graham Norton on iPlayer... Their clip was of the Bubbleship in a Dogfight.  Spangly indeed.  And mercifully early in the show.

Tis quite interesting looking.  Hope it doesn't end up being another Prometheus

I am more worried that its another Battlefield Earth... :whistle:  Certainly hope this isn't based on the Theme Park ride.

But looks a bit spangly and I will be putting on my LoveFilm list, so will get to see it in2-3 years...

(PPPS They do still look like novelty sex toys)

Probably a good thing RTD has dropped out of the picture, that might have ended up in the script.

It went on too long and I got bored of it. Then there was the time shifting and alternative universes and that was it...

As a Trekkie.

This.  Pushing too much out too quickly over the run of TNG, DS9 and Voyager over 14 years non-stop overlapping 3 decades...  I think they just ran out of steam and the audience became bored of the same old stuff getting recycled...

The villain of the piece there was Michael Grade who was on record as wanting rid of Doctor Who ASAP.  Ironic considering the marvellous cult TV his dad brought us over on 1970's ITV land...

Will they be broadcasting a normal v ersion for those of us that dont want to watch it in 3D and assume that access to said cinema screenings will not be covered under our licence fee.

its only about Ten this weekend.  I guess we will hear more.  Seeing as how both had previously denied being asked and on the same weekend additional denials came from Barroman and Agyeman...

Personally my wish list is for Eccleston and McGann with a side serving of McCoy in a multi-doctor arc.

But thats only because Tom Baker is a bit too old to reprise (and make up for the 5 doctors when he didn't want to show up)...

Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: Things that make you happy
« on: February 21, 2013, 07:50:25 AM »
Help.  The radiator is now fixed in the third bedroom.  Not only does this mean that this can now be decorated as my second daughters own room before her 1st birthday, which is good.  However now I have now lost the space required for my desk and shelffor hobby space.  Tried to go mobile with a smaller setup but cannot find anywhere with good enough light for me to work after the kids bedtime.

Can anyone suggest an alternative to make me happy again?

Doctor Who / Re: Spoiler about the new series.
« on: February 21, 2013, 07:40:52 AM »
What new series? Don't they mean the last half of last year's five episode "half season" wich was supposed to resume sometime ebfore Christmas but got replaced by some chavvy nonsense instead?

Was never coming back before Xmas...  The Christmas special with new companion elements should have made that very clear.  TBH I am more concerned about when it restarts as I dont get back from China until next week.  so as long as its not this Saturday then I am good to go.

That would have made a very short lotr. The fellowship set off and promptly get burnt to a cinders by a giant dragon.

No.

Apparently all dragons come equipped with a vulnerable underbelly and can be downed by a single arrow.

Dont be so silly.  That would require a million to one chance of success. :whistle:

How do they match up with Geronimos Apex investigators...  Seems a speccy science type might be sourced quickly and reduce the next round of badgering by 1 and allow you to get on with Deano's female second in command.

Is iyt too late to suggest 5 alternative 'favourite' heads (perhaps as and additional sprue) for Mr Alexander maybe with a possible silenced pistol and machine gun weapon options? :angel:

definately better than i had feared.  Looks like Dave was paying attention to the fan critisisms  from "back to earth".  I liked that it felt very much like the early Red Dwarf most of the time.

Have you watched any diz movies in the las 20 years.  A muical number every ten minutes will kill any star wars movie. 

That may be the traditional template...  But quite frankly it shows that you have not watched a Disney film in 10 years...  (Pixar films count, as does Bad Santa...)

Certainly it's streets ahead of the last lot; just not up there with the classic stuff.

Series 1 and 2 were the best for me. Downhill gradually from there with each successive series although I kept watching out of loyalty. Current series has had me at least smiling all the way through each episode and a few big laughs, so far, so that's a big improvement over at least the last 4 series and the cringeworthy Back To Earth special, from my POV, at least.

Can't argue with anything there. Series 1 and 2 are by far the best.

Not a major surprise thats the point where it stopped being co-written by Grant and Naylor>  They had a falling out and will never work together again.  Doug Naylor continued solo.  Perhaps their mutual loathing seemed to carry over into the comedy gold of the original Lister/Rimmer dynamic.

It also made me laugh out loud in places, very rare.

Its not as good as it once was.  But as Grant and Naylor will never work together again it can never be...  It is however seemingly a welcome return to its original format (Sans kochanski), and a few of the jokes are both funny and quotable...  I was entertained and that is after all the key thing for me, and as stated, its nowhere near the 3-part special.  I am quite looking forward to see how an SFX budget will add the SF bling to the mix.

Do miss Holly mind.
