Interesting list, with a few surprising choices. I certainly wouldn't even put The Next Doctor in my top thirty. Really? I know the Cyberking sort of sucked, but... I'm flabbergasted. Not so much to do with The Next Doctor, but generally my "favourite" Doctor Who stories are those as remo...

OK, I've been thinking some more about the Anniversary Special and I've changed a few of my assumptions - mainly some additions not subtractions. However bear with me... Before I was convinced that the "Big Bad" would be Omega, and the "founder" of The Silence (religion). I'm sti...

it's the first time I've ever sat through a silent film If you want to watch more, I recommend Nosferatu . From the silent films I've seen, it's the most compelling, and in my opinion features the most chilling portrayal of Dracula on-screen (Max Shreck is ten times the vampire Bela Lugosi is). Oth...

In the hopes of encouraging discussion and debates about Doctor Who... OK 1. A Christmas Carol Undoubtedly to my mind the best Nu-Who episode. This has so much going for it - its based on what I consider one of the greatest stories of all time, but is sufficiently different and has enough original ...

I'm not returning, but I'd just like to say ten things: 1) I was right all along when it came to Joe Jump (as it was then known)/Wreck It Ralf. 2) Still think Pixar films are way overrated. 3) I still want to slap Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Wendy from Peter Pan. 4) Studios not content with s...

Hey Frankenollie, don't take my opinions seriously - after all, not only is Castrovalva my favourite story, but I think The Happiness Patrol is a close second, and I most certainly do want to see the Kandyman again (given he was melted down to a metal skeleton in HP, I guess he could come back "...

I've just watched A Monster in Paris - a blu-ray I picked up from my local supermarket for a fiver. I think its fair to say I wasn't expecting much, but I was blown away by the film. It's totally bonkers. For all of the praise of Pixar and their "risk taking" there is no way on Earth that ...

Interesting Frankenollie. Generally I found this episode to be... average. Probably, to be honest, below average - but I'll have to wait for a rewatch to decide. Around the internet I see it tends to be a story which has people who passionately loving it, or people who are just indifferent to it. Wh...

I enjoyed Dinosaurs on a Spaceship more than Asylum of the Daleks. And yes, I enjoyed the Mitchell and Webb robots. But that doesn't mean I would want to see them again. I just enjoyed them for what they were. I think its good to have a lighter, comedy episode every so often. If there's one thing Do...

I think you're spot on with your analysis of the two writing styles. I also think Davies was better - with Davies while he wrote "big", especially for his climaxes, it was always the little stuff that worked. I still think the best character in New Who was Jackie. I accept part of this was...

Personally, with the disappointment of the Lion King and other high profile Blu-Ray releases such as Fantasia, and the stupid "Virtual Vaults" on these and other discs, I'm more than happy with the Cinderella release. I think all the SD stuff ported over has been upscaled, but I could be w...

Actually, I don't think that's the case. Many statements in DWM from both Gatiss, Moffat and even Smith seem to indicate that the new Daleks, while still being around, will be a sort of superior "officer class". Also the trailer shows a few new Daleks, and about 600 trillion bronze Daleks....

I have to agree. I'm disappointed by this step backwards. The new Daleks look superb when seen en-masse - check out the PC games, the PS3 game or the graphic novel "The Only Good Dalek". I hate to say it, but giving the Daleks colours does give them more of a personality. Just as Sec was e...

What's good about Eccleston's Doctor is that he doesn't do much himself. His Doctor is more about staying in the background and inspiring others to act. In retrospect the Time War affected him more than was initially suspected. If you watch his stories, most of the time the danger is averted because...

Mark Williams is strongly said to be playing Rory's dad. In fact it may have been officially confirmed, I forget. Regardless he's not in the Skaro episode. As for scary Daleks I love the 'phat' Daleks. See them in a crowd and they really do work incredibly well. The colours help. Check out the PC ad...

Well more news and (2099net's) speculations: Firstly its been confirmed that the the filming in Spain was for a western episode (with a cyborg bounty hunter) and the opening episode set on Skaro. The Skaro based episode is interesting for potentially two reasons. The first is that it's going to feat...

Well filming began last week on the 2012 series of Doctor Who, due to be shown starting in the Autumn. As before the series will include 13 episodes plus a Christmas special. As always, the programme is about change, and this series will see Amy and Rory leave, and a new companion ("unlike any ...

DeathieMouse is actually Bluray.com's Webmaster - known as WebMaster (on non-forum postings) and Deciazulado (on the forum. No, I don't know why.) Although he has taken to writing a few reviews and posting more news articles himself. Normally he just manages everyone else's contributions to the site.
