Dr. Who is outside

I'm at work and the 7th Doctor is being filmed in the grounds.

Should I be ducking and covering against DALEK invasion? There's nothing in the Health & Safety manual about it.

I walked past Tom Baker down Wood Lane once. He looked a little bewildered, 'what year is this?!' etc.

This is the second time there's been a Dr. Who here but they've both been rubbish ones.

Liz :x (Liz :x), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 08:48 (eighteen years ago) link

Apparently there's a Dalek as well but I've not seen it.

Apparently, it's being done for some local news thingy so there won't be any actual new episodes featuring me staring gormlessly from an office window as the Doctor regenerates into MOODY AND INTENSE C. Eccleston.

robster (robster), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 08:55 (eighteen years ago) link

Apparently, I used the word 'apparently' far too much in that last post. Gah!

And there I thought this was some reference to the old knock knock joke. I didn't realise he was actually outside.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 09:01 (eighteen years ago) link

It's a big Norman Foster steel & glass thingy, with a big central atrium and concrete terraces, surrounded by a nature reserve. I suppose it looked futuristic about 15 years ago when it was last used.

Do you include McGann, Alan? You are evidently not a rockist.

Liz :x (Liz :x), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 10:46 (eighteen years ago) link

It was McCoy who was hanging around here. The mention of Eccleston was just me speculating about the purpose of the visit.

robster (robster), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 10:54 (eighteen years ago) link

I would like to meet a Doctor, seeing as they were my childhood heroes and all.

The 7th Doctor worked much, much better in books than he did on screen, and even then I think his stories would have been vastly improved with halfway decent editing (and a couple of them, like "Remembrance of the Daleks" and "Ghost Light", work despite this handicap).

The most underrated 7th Doctor story is "Paradise Towers". In the midst of all of the camp nonsense lurks a genuinely creepy story.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 12:49 (eighteen years ago) link

I suppose I should just go ahead and change my name to Dorkus Ginormo.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 12:49 (eighteen years ago) link

Pope Dorkus Ginormo? It has a certain je ne sais quoi to it.

Liz :x (Liz :x), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 12:52 (eighteen years ago) link

The 6th and 7th doctors were also massively handicapped by having Bonnie Langford as an assistant.

robster (robster), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 12:59 (eighteen years ago) link

Yes, the Peri/Ace stories are much better (although I will again say that "Paradise Towers" is much better than people think it is).

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:02 (eighteen years ago) link

it's all about The Happiness Patrol

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:07 (eighteen years ago) link

Yes, that's another good one!

The 7th Doctor would have benefitted greatly from executive support rather than executive sabotage.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:13 (eighteen years ago) link

and possibly Red Dwarf III's effects budget

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:15 (eighteen years ago) link

Is The Happiness Patrol different from Paradise Towers? I must have confused them. Which of them featured a Bertie Basset as a lethal foe?

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:18 (eighteen years ago) link

the former, he was Candyman and woe betide you to fall foul of his boiling vats

I think Happiness Patrol was the Bertie Bassett one. Paradise Towers had some kind of swimming pool dwelling monster.

robster (robster), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:21 (eighteen years ago) link

i'm not sure there was any way Dr Who could've realistically survived into the '90s without a significant effects budget - who knew the price of Video Toasters would landslide just a few years later?

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:23 (eighteen years ago) link

is that Indiana Jones?

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:31 (eighteen years ago) link

Dan; I feel that "Paradise Towers" is a very good story at its core - its sleeve adorned with Ballard influence - but the production was very poor. They got the tone all wrong, and remarkably Richard Briers (what a wonderful actor in so much... "Ever Decreasing Circles" I am loving intensely at the mo) really lets it down with a terribly hammy performance. McCoy has yet to find his feet too, and there is the Langford issue.

I much prefer the same season's "Delta and the Bannermen"; a rather enjoyable romp through 50s cliches and with a solid plot. McCoy clearly starts to improve here. And Ken Dodd's cameo is actually pretty good and in keeping with the whole thing.

Tom May (Tom May), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:32 (eighteen years ago) link

How about some sypnoses for new episodes here then?

stevem (blueski), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:36 (eighteen years ago) link

ah so it was mccoy. yes Paradise Towers has a germ of a good story, but as ever the execution is let down. the bluntness of Brier's "Hitler" was misjudged, probably not by Briers, who would have been expected to give that sort of performance. Happiness Patrol suXoR boring running around story.

Jaunty Alan (Alan), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:38 (eighteen years ago) link

Stevem, what do you mean by "new episodes"? Because I could go off into a 20-page essay about what happened in both the Virgin and BBC book lines that would make your eyes GLAZE (but probably not until this weekend as I'm sure my employers already are annoyed by the amount of time I spend on ILX as it is).

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:44 (eighteen years ago) link

McCoy certainly appears to be the most Hartnell-esque of the Doctors (i.e. pursuing his own ends rather than the greater good, very devious) but unfortunately his entire run in undermined by the monstrosity that is "Time and the Rani" - the worst Who episodes ever.

aldo_cowpat (aldo_cowpat), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:44 (eighteen years ago) link

That's a wild misreading of the McCoy Doctor IMO; his entire schtick was that he was Time's Champion, the great manipulator who would rig conflicts in his favor before they even started in the name of The Greater Good. Ace's entire character arc was the Doctor subverting the plans of an Ultimate Evil with her as the lynchpin.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 13:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Hmm.

Maybe I need to watch them again then (although McCoy is the least represented in my 'off the telly' video collection). He always seemed to me to be the most cynical, and never appeared to be someone you could trust.

aldo_cowpat (aldo_cowpat), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 14:30 (eighteen years ago) link

Oh, I agree he's not particularly trustworthy. He's the Doctor most likely to blow up one planet to save a thousand others; Hartnell OTOH would have buggered off as the first planet was blowing up and then pottered into stopping the bad guys as a side-effect of saving his own skin.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 14:32 (eighteen years ago) link

Funny, I was trying to work "most likely to blow up a planet" into my response there as well...

I should get some of the Virgin and BBC books, I guess.

On the other hand, a weekend trip to Blackpool is U&K now the Who exhibition is back there (not far from where I saw it as a kid in the 70s) following the demise of Longleat.

aldo_cowpat (aldo_cowpat), Wednesday, 19 May 2004 14:47 (eighteen years ago) link

You're probably the only one who recognised McCoy. "'Ere, who's that fat bastard juggling biscuits? It sounds like Rowan Atkinson but it don't look like 'im, innit."

I see what you mean about #7 being better in books though. I'm reading Lungbarrow. It's enjoyable, and #7 Doctor is well-realised, but christ it's hard to sustain interest. All the political Gallifreyan nonsense. I don't give a pants about crappy bloody Time Lords talking shite in meeting rooms.

Troughton's still my fave, and I like McCoy a lot, despite his distinct non-acting.

I Wish You Almanac (Autumn Almanac), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:01 (eighteen years ago) link

Virgin 7th Doctor novels I recommend:

Nightshade
Transit
The Left-Handed Hummingbird
No Future
Falls The Shadow
Set Piece
Sanctuary
Human Nature
Head Games
The Also People
Just War
Sleepy
Christmas On A Rational Planet
Damaged Goods
So Vile A Sin

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:08 (eighteen years ago) link

Yeah. I'm forcing myself to read it because (a) it's free on BBCi; (b) it's part three of the whole Hand of Omega wossname; (c) I didn't print 35 chapters for nowt, dammit.

Thanks for the tips. I've not seen a Virgin book in like forever, but I'll print your list and keep my feelers out. Human Nature's free on BBCi so that'll be next I rekkin.

Recently I've been [furtively] picking up some BBC books. Currently reading Halflife and it's quite good. Crooked World is excellent too. Mark of Gaderene is next because I want to see what Mark Gatiss can do outside League of Gentlemen. Shalka is pointless but curiously entertaining.

I Wish You Almanac (Autumn Almanac), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:19 (eighteen years ago) link

I loved _The Mark Of The Garderene_! It's actually on my reread list. (Gatiss also wrote _Nightshade_.)

Also _The Crooked World_!!!!!! Steve Lyons also rules (and he wrote _Head Games_). He explores similar themes in _Conundrum_, only from an alternate universe angle.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:23 (eighteen years ago) link

Awesome. I can only find Crooked World by Steve Lyons, but I've been looking for more. The range in Australia is a bit limited.

Ahhh. So nice to talk about Doctor Who books on a nongeek forum. All my friends give me weird looks and change the subject.

I Wish You Almanac (Autumn Almanac), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:24 (eighteen years ago) link

Oh COOL. Of course I've read all of those; I especially recommend _The Sands Of Time_ (Justin Richards is another great writer and actually one-time editor of the BBC line) and the aforementioned _Human Nature_.

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:31 (eighteen years ago) link

Sands of Time is not all there yet, but it's also available in PDA ebook format. Which is good, because I've been printing the BBCi books to read them on public transport without people thinking I'm a geek, but now I can read them on my Palm, which means people will think I'm a geek, but for all the wrong reasons.

I Wish You Almanac (Autumn Almanac), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:36 (eighteen years ago) link

Haha I'm completely shameless about reading Who books on public transportation! I've actually had people ask me about the books, including two thugged-out teens. I was shocked that they even knew who Doctor Who was, let alone were interested in it!

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:44 (eighteen years ago) link

Ahahaha. I've mastered the art of holding the book so the whole logo is neatly obscured, but there's always that lingering fear of someone punching me in the anorak and nicking my lunch money.

Meh. This time next year they'll be begging me for a lend.

I Wish You Almanac (Autumn Almanac), Thursday, 20 May 2004 02:53 (eighteen years ago) link

I once "heckled" Mark Gatiss when he was a guest on This Morning W Richard Not Judy at the Edinburgh Fringe. He was asked about his Dr Who (and gay pr0n) writing and was pretending to forget the name of the book - so we yelled out "Nightshade" for him. ho ho

I didn't have a problem with the eighth Doctor, it's the crap movie built around him that sucked. And his dialogue. And his stupid half-human nonsense. And harrassing strangers about their future. And the wacky TARDIS interior. And the snogging. And the wig. And the Master. And the plot. And the credits.

I found that one a bit disturbing.

_Revolution Man_ could have been so fantastic. Sigh.

Jonathon Morris is a complete and total star, Adam; have you read _Fesitval Of Death_ or _Anachrophobia_?

VengaDan Perry (Dan Perry), Sunday, 20 June 2004 13:57 (eighteen years ago) link

I thought Revolution Man was fantastic, building to that amazing shock ending... which was never followed up, and which therefore just seems odd and out of character. I thought it was going to raise all sorts of issues for the Doctor's future direction. But no.

Ian Edmond (ianedmond), Sunday, 20 June 2004 18:29 (eighteen years ago) link

That's almost precisely the problem I had with it; you had this completely shocking ending that was totally out of character which was then subsequently ignored by the following books, making it completely meaningless.

Adam; have you read _Fesitval Of Death_ or _Anachrophobia_?

Ahahaha. As luck would have it, they're the other two Jonathan Morris books I have, and I've not read either. Having seen no Tom Baker at all since I was about 10, I can't remember what he's like at all, so I'm holding off on Festival of Death until our local telly network gets to him [reruns four nights a week; currently they're 1/3 through the Pertwee stuff].

I've not read Revolution Man, and after those sterling reviews I don't think I will now. :)

I finished The Last Resort last night, which I really rate. Unlike, as far as I can make out, everyone else who has read it. Paul Leonard doesn't spring to mind when I think of my favourite DW authors, but with this, The Turing Test and Revolution Man, I may have to reconsider.
