CT 401/2

Celestial Toyroom issue 401/2 is being mailed out now, a bit later than planned -sorry about that. In an attempt to see if we can produce the current CT for a lower price, or get more pages for the same money, this issue has, as a bit of an experiment, been produced using digital/laser printing as opposed to the usual offset litho.

Target reprint Winner

Well done to Thomas Pence who wins the competition. The correct answer was of course Chris Achellios

Time 5

Thank you to everyone who came along to Riverside Studios yesterday and supported us - if people do not come along there is little point in organising an event!

I hope that everyone enjoyed Invasion of the Dinosaurs episode 1 - the colour was much better than I was expecting and the UNIT Box Set which will feature it in January should be well worth having.

Panic Moon Fanzine

I like paper and ink fanzines and Panic Moon is one of the few that are around these days (said from CT of course). There was a time when fanzines were as prolific as Doctor Who events are now....

The last issue is out at a mere £1-20 and comes recommended by ME. What more incentive could you need? :-)

Quatermass and the Pit

The movie adaption of ‘Quatermass and the Pit’ has this month been released on Blu Ray and DVD by Studio Canal on the ‘Double Play’ range.

We have added another guest - David Bailie will be attending. David was Taren Capel in 'Robots of Death' but is an established stage and screen actor with a wide range of credits to his name. More details are available by clicking the link through to Time 5.

Doctor Who: Invasion of the Dinosaurs episode 1 in colour and Reign of Terror

As you may already know, part one of this 1974 story, for a number of years missing from the archive, and then available only as a black and white tele-recording has been restored to colour for a forthcoming DVD release. We are pleased to announce that the episode will be previewed on the big screen at Riverside Studios, during Time 5 on 29th October 2011.
