Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
Do you think I don’t know that?
Rough sketch of Capaldi as the new Doctor.
No ref used. ^_^
(can’t wait next episode!)
just saw a Nine/Rose picture set with Nine’s last words - and they replaced every “fantastic” with “amazing”. this sacrilege!
Doctor Who actor Christopher Eccleston has lent his support to a charity picnic that will see a Highgate park turn pink in memory of a schoolgirl who died from cancer.
Mr Eccleston, of Highgate, joined the mother of 17-year-old Alexandra Wylie, Lindsey Wylie, and her former Channing school friends at pan-Asian restaurant Tootoomoo in Crouch End on Tuesday to promote the annual Pinknic in the Park.
The all-pink day of live music, food and games, held on September 6 in Waterlow Park, is in aid of the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation, which this year will raise money to fund food parcels and nutrition classes for north London children living in poverty. The charity was set up in 2011 in memory of Alexandra, known as Allie to friends, who died in 2010 from an incurable form of cancer.
Mr Eccleston, who will judge the picnic’s cake competition, said: “It is horrifying that such high levels of poverty are right on our doorstep and I am pleased to be able to provide support for a programme that is working with local children who are not getting enough food. It is a privilege to work with the charity.”
Our local doctor who fan club has been organizing screenings of the new series 8 episodes as they air, and last week we decided would also screen one episode of the classic series as a “sample” to each doctor’s era (so that people who want to start the old series have somewhere to start, other than “from the very beggining” lol).
So, the question is: which stories would you pick to “sum up” each era of the show? as in, if you had to pick *one* episode that best gives you an idea of what the rest of that Doctor’s run will be like, what would be your choices?
(PS These *aren’t* supposed to be “the best” episodes of each, in fact, it would be better if they aren’t “too good” compared to everything else, avarage episodes are ideal because they give people a better idea of what expectations to have).
One: The Aztecs (Barbara is great and the whole dilemma about changing past is very familiar) or The Dalek Invasion of Earth (it is pretty iconic after all, also heartbreaking companion goodbye)
Two: The Enemy of the World (for Jamie/Victoria, also excellent PT is excellent) or The Mind Robber (for Jamie/Zoe)
Three: Spearhead from Space (great post regen-story, also parallels to Rose that viewers might enjoy) or Terror of the Autons (same baddies but this time with Jo and the Master which is a big part of Three’s run so maybe more representative?)
Four: Genesis of the Daleks (if your audience likes the Daleks) or City of Death (fun with Romana, some timey wimey, OMG LOOK WE FILMED IN PARIS!!!)
Five: Earthshock (for Nyssa/Tegan/Adric) or Mawdryn Undead (for Turlough’s introduction? and the sheer hilarity of him failing to kill Five) or whatever else is your fav Turlough/Tegan story lol
Six: The Mark of the Rani (idk, the Rani and Master shenanigans are pretty fun so)
Seven: Dragonfire (you get Mel and Ace) or Remembrance of the Daleks (Ace beats up a Dalek with a baseball bat what else do you need??? lol)
Bonus: The Three Doctors and The Five Doctors are both good picks as well, though not exactly ~representative for an era~
Either way, I think it might be beneficial to pick episodes that have some familiar element to it (the bad guys, some moral issue, thematic similarities or iconic shots) so that newbies can go “oh I KNOW THIS!! :D”
