NYCC Day 3 – More Doctor Who, Valiant, and of course, COSPLAY OF THE DAY!

051

Saturday at New York Comic Con. Or as I like to call it,  the 8th ring of hell. Maybe it’s not the best thing for a mild agoraphobic like myself to be at, but I persevered. As you may remember, I was up late after the first day, due to an animal emergency.   I was … Continue reading

Not seen in over 40 years, two early episodes of Doctor Who have recently been found. Of 253 episodes that aired when William Hartnell (1963-66) and Patrick Troughton (1966-69) played the Doctor, 108 had believed to been lost, due to the BBC’s policy of “wiping”.  Now that number is 106.  The episodes discovered are 1965 … Continue reading

(www.private-eye.co.uk) And this is how the TV on the BBC differs greatly from American TV.     Even though the BBC has order 14 episodes for 2012 (the standard 13 plus the now traditional Doctor … Continue reading

Whommmm

It’s been quite a year so far for the Doctor.  First thing he did was die, and  its only got more exciting from there. We heard the Silence with Richard Nixon, swashbuckled with pirates, and was seen “in the flesh” so to speak.   And now that a good man has gone to war, we know … Continue reading
