Crusade In Jeans, March Through Time EXCELLENT TIME TRAVEL MOVIE

CRUSADE IN JEANS is a perfect example of using history and timetravel and good storytelling without contrived superheroics (you know what I mean). I just finished watching it and it is sooo good it stays with you.

1212 : the Children's Crusade has to be one of the saddest, stupidest events in history. 1000s of children and teens taking off to Jerusalem, going the wrong way, following a shepard boy who meant well but who either was duped into or deluded about having heard from God. The faithfull were used by the faithless adults. It all ends badly for the kids, either dying from starvation, the cold, or being sold into slavery by the adults they trusted (priests!!!!) or killed by animals. Many were lost and never saw their homes again, some survived. Some returned home. It's a little known facet of history and I'm shocked that no one has put it on the screen before this.

Will End of Time Break Waters of Mars Record for BBC America?

The End of Time comes to BBC America tonight, well part 1 of it at least. Will it top the best figures BBC America received last week with the airing The Waters of Mars special? Time will tell. 1.1 million viewers turned into BBC America (of those that can receive it of course) to see The Waters of Mars making it the highest rated show ever on BBC America.

Tonight at 9pm (EST), Doctor Who returns to the cable/satellite channel with The End of Time, Part 1. Here's a taste of the episode below.

Dalek's Master Plan Coloursations 2 by BabelColour

BabelColour's colourisation of the monochrome 1965/6 serial 'The Daleks Master Plan'. The majority of this video was colourised frame-by-frame using Adobe Photoshop, although the clips featuring Kert Gantry (played by Brian Cant) were motion-tracked by James Russell from photoshopped frames I had colourised.

Master Mask, Courtesy of the BBC

The mind boggles - no, I'm not going to rush out and "put elastic on it," and I am old enough to cut it out myself, than you very much, but, having been very impressed with Mr. Simm in person, I just don't know what I'm going to do with this mask. Hmmm.... Thanks, BBC!  Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
