Century Falls and Dark Season

Whilst browsing through Amazon (well what else is there to do on a Saturday apart from wait for Doctor Who?) I was very pleased to see that the 1990s children's series 'Century Falls' and 'Dark Season' have been released on DVD by the BBC. Both of course are from the pen of RTD and are, in my humble view, some of the finest children's TV of their era.

The Time of Angels. A final word

The final word this week comes from Mike Basil, and looks at the Weeping Angels.

It's a long story... and I don't know most of it!

I really enjoyed "The Time of Angels". I enjoyed its humour, its tension, its atmosphere... its everything.

You wont be surprised then that when I voted in our poll I chose the "Instant classic" option.

After voting I did the usual Saturday evening round of phone calls. Everyone that I spoke to liked the episode. However, many of them said something along the following lines:

The Time of Angels. You're singing a Happy Song!

A unanimous thumbs up so far, and I certainly have to agree. A wonderful episode, I just hope that "Flesh & Stone" manages to live up to "The Time of Angels".

The Angels

Well I am actually relieved now. After last week's episode, I thought it was a big improvement.

I liked the bit about The TARDIS not making the noise. I liked kicking the globe like a football. I liked the TARDIS appearing in space to rescue River. I liked the soldiers being clerics. Yes, I liked.

Publicity

Although we did not create any headlines this week, the publicity for the prgramme continues. My favourite this week comes from:

Yes Jo Grant is back!

Enough said (cannot wait) .

Victory of the Daleks. The final word.

For the second week running it falls upon the shoulders of Gary Merchant to sign off for the blog on Victory of the Daleks. But just before that, am I allowed to say that I was disappointed by the episode? No?

Oh well, too late I guess. Right Gary.........

Red and yellow and pink and green. Purple and orange and SUPREME!

Well... aren't they colourful?!

Firstly I'd once again like to thank all of you that have taken the time to vote in our poll. Please encourage as many people as possible to take part - the results are very interesting.

CT - Your Magazine!

It's always good to receive your feedback & I've been delighted at how well many of the features that appear in CT are going down so well. We're aiming to build on this over the coming months, and hope you continue to enjoy them!
