I don't hold with this new fangled Doctor Who with, young sexy people in it. I want mature gentlemen who a lived an interesting life playing the Doctor. I don't want wan looking waifs as assistants / romantic interest for the Doctor. Why would the Doctor start fancying humans anu
Grumble grumble. Bring back Tom Baker and Sarah Jane.
Praise be to RTD for bringing back the good Doctor with Chris Ecclestone.
But RTD needs to go - his increasingly cloying, overly sentimental, generic, American style sci-fi is becoming increasingly threadbare. Also his ability to extract ham from talented actors and over reliance on the sonic screwdriver is painful.
All it needs is for Tenant, Tate and Piper to go and I might start watching it again.
Why does this site, like many others, use Boffin to refer to scientists or technical specialist? It smacks of the tabloids and low rent channel 5 science shows. Come on, and use proper titles, it won't hurt and people will think better of you.
It's also the start of a slippery slope in tabloid-esque euphemisms, like the use of "guzzled", "feasted", "mocked", "tot" and "manhood".
...and the teleportation bracelets looked like they were made on Blue Peter, which is ironic considering there was an episode of Blue Peter where they showed you how to make one.
Anyone remember Servalan(sp?) struggling over grim looking sand dunes, on the south coast of England in November, whilst wearing a ball gown and high heels?
This thread has bought back many memories of how bad B7 was first time round. Must be me getting old and cynical.....
Has anyone watched the original Blake's 7 recently? As a creation of Terry "Daleks" Nation, IMHO it suffered from his minimal writing abilities: poor characterisation, camp and stiltied dialog, and badly executed, but potentially interesting ideas.
As has already been noted, the premise of the show has been covered many times in far better, high budget, American shows: a Sky production wouldn't stand a chance against them.
Best left alone, methinks.
And the following people should be kept away, using guns if required:
French & Saunders
Ant & Dec
Catherine Tate (talentless waste of DNA)
They're a useless bunch of wankers.
They have failed to provide me with an apology of explanation for my site going down for 6 days last september, or indeed this year. I've had less than their advertised 99.99% uptime.
Tech support consists of VOIP connections to foreign agents of varying english speaking ability.
Simple faults that should have been quickly resolved have only been fixed after many calls and tens of minutes on hold.
A choice selection of user problems with 1and1 can be found here: "http://www.evilscience.co.uk/?cat=8
P.S. Can anyone recommend a UK based ASP.NET hosting service that isn't 1and1?
has been blatantly cashing in on Di's legacy for the better part of a decade; at least once a year he has some new secret to reveal, some new fact. Professing love and respect for Diana, and crassly invading her (not to mention her children's) privacy etc etc
I don't like Diana or Burrel, and now that she's dead she should be left alone and Burrel should just fuck off.
Surely someone must have dug out one of his nonsensical verses filled with vague metaphor, and interpreted it as being related to this solar activity cycle.
Come tin foil hat brigade, we're all waiting for more "proof" of Nostradamus's brilliance.....
Yeah, I'm pleased to see Moffat writing this: he's written some of the best episodes of the new series of Doctor Who.
However, I'm not sure about Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock - I imagine a bigger, burlier man like Brian Blessed or whathisname who played Gimlin in Lord of the Rings.
I was hoping for genuine lobsters, used in the same way sniffer dogs are. That'd make for a fine, surreal site at the airport: lobsters on leads, peering intently at things to see if they contain contraband.
Now, if we could use 'em for telephonic communications I'd be one happy meerkat.
I have the misfortune of using 1and1 for hosting - in a 14 day period I have had 5 days of downtime, been kept on hold by disinterested support personnel for hours at a time, given conflicting advice on whether they support AJAX and was suprised to find out that AJAX is only supported on Linux Servers.
To call them useless is a complement.
I really didn't like Billie Piper, she was dominating Series 2 to the point of making the Doctor a secondary character. David Tenan'ts Doctor Who is mediocre with moments of inspiration, but with Billie Piper it fell into cheap, cloying soap opera.
The presence of Catherine Tate is enough to make think twice about watching series 4, but with the return of Billie "Talent Vacuum, Hamster Face, Limited Acting Ability" Piper, I will not be watching it.
/Stalks off to find a Patrick Troughton DVD to watch.
