Inside Look: What is the TARDIS? (Video)

David Tennant and Russell T Davies talk about the magic of the TARDIS in an all-new Doctor Who Inside Look.


ETERNAL SUMMER is a 4/5 audio, continuing the good quality started by CASTLE OF FEAR. Again, I'm not a big Nyssa alone with Doctor 5 fan. For many reasons I won't go into. Here, Jonathan Morris, not my fav writer of DW spinoff stuff, for reasons I won't go into, excells here. Part one is his greatest writing and it keeps a sense of fun, mystery, and has a solid emotional core. While his characters and plot tend to go toward the depressing Joe Lidster death and finality with no hope of afterlife, he never pores it on so thick that one is left with a dark despair that some DW spinoffs (TW included) try to pass off on us and make us think that's adult rather than some morbid outlook on misery and life as if they're synonimous. There's a great deal of time paradoxes in part one that are well done and in some way it all fits together and makes sense. 


MERLIN season two is off to a dvd start and it's just as good as season one thus far. I'd give each ep a 4 out of 5 or a 9 out of 10. The first episode has a great guest star and once he turns into an ancient risen from the dead sorcerer, things heat up a lot. At the same time, the interpersonal relationships grow and exceed last season but...for some bits they seem the same. The plots require the great Anthony Head's Uther to be pigheaded, stubborn, prejudice, rude, arrogant, and almost deadly to anyone that is against magic. He's also stupid in not listening to Gaius and then later tends to say he's right that magic is evil! He annoys me no end and once this character is can almost see how Morgana wants to,later, kill him. At the same time, I give kudos to the show for putting Gaius, an old man, at the center. If it weren't for him, would Merlin really want to stay at this prejudice castle working for a royal prat pole?

FWIW, the Audible free Thanksgiving promo offer (without need of a credit card) that was mentioned in the current Ep.171 does not appear to include Doctor Who related titles. I was very :( about that...

season 3 of Sarah Jane Adventures

Good God, these are unwatchable. Therefore...I didn't except for  a few moments. Geeze. Can anyone sit through the GIFT?
