I've had Tomb of The Cybermen on a rather old and battered VHS copy - it's a great episode   smile

I hope that rumor about McGann being in the new series is untrue.  I think it would be better just to go right into it.

It's a shame Episodes 1 and 4 of "The Invasion" don't exist, because IMO it's a better Cyberman story than "Tomb of the Cybermen".  Although all of Patrick Troughton's Cybermen stories were good, in the good old days before the Cybermen developed emotions and started yelling "Excellent!" at every opportunity.

As for Paul McGann, I see your point AJ, but including a regeneration scene will give the new show some continuity with what's gone before.

BUMP

I've read a snippet of a rumour in SFX that Bill Nighy has ruled himself out of the role.  Anybody have any details?

I've not seen anything yet, but I'll keep my eyes open.

BTW, has anyone on here ever gone to a company that makes videos of the lost Doctor Who eps, they do the same thing that BBC did with the Tenth Planet, use the telesnaps and audio to make an episode.  The thing is, it's free, all you need do, is provide a videotape, and the cost of shopping.  As far as I know, the BBC has given them a limited blessing, even though it's just a bunch of fans doing it.  I'm going to check it out this weekend, and maybe see about ordering some videos, seeing as it's probably the closest I'l get to seeing some of the lost episodes.

I've heard OF them.  Apparently their version of "The Tenth Planet" is supposed to be better than the Restoration Team's version, but for obvious reasons they pulled it when the "official" version became available.

Personally I think there's quite a few missing episodes scattered around the world, in the hands of film collecters who don't know it's true value, ex BBC personnal who've stashed them up in their attic, or fans who are hoarding them to keep their value high.

I saw that the first three stories are going to be released on DVD: An Unearthly Child/100000 BC, the first Dalek story, and The Edge of Destruction/Inside the Spaceship.  No word on extras.

That's great news!  Is it R2 or R1?

Speaking of "Inside the Spaceship", I think I've found a flaw in the BBC's release schedule.  Both "The Visitation" and "Earthshock" have been released.  So what will they do about "Black Orchid"?  A two-parter on it's own isn't the most cost-effective DVD, even with extras.

Action Jackson - I just checked the BBC's Doctor Who website, I can't see any mention of any of those stories being released.  Where did you see the news?

mikey - There's been at least seven remixes of the Doctor Who theme song.

The information about the DVDs was at Gallifrey One.  They have actually been announced for region 1 but not region 2, so they might be out in region 1 first.  I think the same thing happened with the Key to Time DVDs.

As for Black Orchid, I'm not sure.  On videotape it was released in the same set as The Visitation.  Maybe it'll be included with Kinda when they finally release that, even though they aren't supposed to be next to each other.  Or maybe a set with all of the Fifth Doctor's two-parters, including The King's Demons and The Awakening.

I have a CD of all the remixes based on "Rock and Roll Part 2."  The main one is called "Doctorin' the Tardis" [sic] and it actually hit #1 on the charts.

They released Vengeance on Varos on DVD and that was a two-parter. I'm sure the BBC doesn't worry about silly little things like 'cost-effectiveness'.

Vengeance on Varos was two episodes of 45 minutes each, about the length of a normal four-parter.

Action Jackson - According to rumours I've heard on the MASH message board, The first three stories won't hit US shelves until at least mid-2005, and it's implied that they'll be out on Region 2 first.

Yes, it's official.  If someone doesn't recognize the name, he recently played the evil army leader in 28 Days Later, and he played the father in The Others.  He's been in various other British and American movies over the past fifteen years or so.

The new issue of Doctor Who magazine has some information about the wirters of the new series.  Most of the thirteen episodes will be done by Russell T Davies but there will be other writers: Mark Gatiss, Robert Shearman, and Paul Cornell will each do one; Steven Moffat will do two.  Gatiss you might know from The League of Gentlemen, but he also did some Doctor Who original fiction in the early and mid 1990s.  Shearman has done a couple Doctor Who audios.  Cornell was a popular writer of Doctor Who original fiction, even though his stuff was terrible.  And Moffat showed a lack of understanding of Doctor Who in that Rowan Atkinson parody (since when is "I'll explain later" a Doctor Who cliché?).

Also, Davies did refer to Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor, so apparently the TV movie is official continuity in his opinion.  But I still want it to start as if Eccleston's Doctor is already established, with no regeneration.

Well, no one responded to me last time, but I'll reply again anyway, even if you all do hate me!

I'd heard a few days ago that The Hartnell Years and The Troughton Years would be adapted to DVD, but now I hear they're actually going to release a set containing most of the existing episodes from incomplete stories: The Crusade, The Daleks' Masterplan (including the recently discovered episode), The Celestial Toymaker, The Tenth Planet, The Underwater Menace, The Moonbase, The Faceless Ones, The Evil of the Daleks, The Abominable Snowmen, The Enemy of the World, The Web of Fear, The Wheel in Space, and The Space Pirates.  Apparently there'll be some sort of linking over missing episodes, as in the previous videotape releases, but I don't know what it'll be, or if the full audio for these episodes will be included (probably not).

Apparently this release will push back the aforementioned set containing the first three stories, I suppose because people can only stand so much black & white.

O.K. all you Whovians out there.  The first week of filming on the new Doctor Who series has started.  It was really exciting to see the Tardis on set once again, plus the return of an old enemy that hasn't been seen since the Pertwee days.  (I don't want to give away any possible spoilers for those of you who don't want to know.)

One question I do have for all of you out there in T.V. land is what do you think about the Daleks not returning.  The Terry Nation estate couldn't reach a deal with the BBC and thus won't be included any time soon in the new series. 

I'm looking forward to the new Who.  I'm just glad that the good Doctor is back.

If anyone wants to learn the identity of the villain, look here.  Russell T. Davies said he believes that by the time the series is ready, every piece of information about every episode will already be known by someone.

She's a former pop-singer, turned actress, who married a flakey drunkard TV presenter and laid wasting on a beach for five years.

Yeah, it's another Mel.
