Alaska Base Survivor

Alaska Base Survivor (10/15)



  1. So when I said I hoped the next one would stretch the boundaries a bit... ๐Ÿ˜… That was... to borrow a phrase... fantastic! And yes, RTD is going to continue to troll the entire internet... ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Hmm, wonder if the MoD will be interested as well? I don't think theres currently even a defence suppression weapon in the RAF inventory since we got rid of ALARM. I always liked that missile though I've never been able to find out how effective it was. In more tragic news, an Osprey has been lost off Japan: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-67563915 Doesn't sound hopeful for survivors... ๐Ÿ˜”
  3. I felt the overall plot was a bit weak, though that may be a fault of the story is was based on (as someone who grew up reading British comics, I did a bit of a double take at the story credits in the opening titles!) but yes, this very much felt like a reunion tour. It does feel some like some change has been deposited in the BBC SFX meter. Not sure about the new TARDIS interior, it feels a bit too "clean" for me (I would love it if this was just a prank on the audience and that it gets trashed later, though I doubt thats likely - please note, I don't hate it, but I did almost expect the TARDIS to start singing "Let It Go"... ๐Ÿ˜„). Apparently the next episode has been kept under lock and key and is going to be a bit more out there...
  4. By that definition... all bombers are fighters... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. So... turns out the colourised "The Daleks" was part of the 60th anniversary celebrations (look, I knew it was the 60th anniversary of "Doctor Who", I just didn't quite grasp it was the 60th anniversary... the definite article, you might say...๐Ÿ˜‰). Its a 75 minute long "movie" version, with a modern score added (which sometimes works, but does also have a habit of intruding). Following that, there was a repeat of "An Adventure in Space and Time", the docudrama about the creation of "Doctor Who" from 10 years ago. However, they made a little change. You'll find it on the interwebs, I won't spoil it...
  6. I don't know if this was previously released on DVD or Blu-Ray, or if it will be available via iPlayer/Disney + but one of the BBC channels is currently broadcasting "The Daleks" - the Hartnell era story that introduced the world to Skaros murderous pepper shakers - in glorious BBC-O-Colour! (and thats Colour" with a "U", by golly chaps! ๐Ÿ˜‰).
  7. As is traditional, last night was the BBCs annual โ€œChildren in Needโ€ charity event, which included a short sequence introducing the 14th Doctor (who looks very familiarโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‰). All Iโ€™m going to say is that the arguments over whether this โ€œstoryโ€ counts as canon are going to rage on for decadesโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜…
  8. The Mk.II, in Titans Blue, is one of my favourite Gundam designs and that release timing is going to... work out for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Part of the same clear out, look what I found...!
  10. Take this with a huge pinch of salt, as I read it in one of the lower-end British newspapers (kids, ask your... grandparents now?), but they ran a story stating that Disney were interested in a couple of "Who" spin-offs - one about UNIT, and the other starring Paul McGann. As the Eighth Doctor. Hmm. You may recall similar rumours swirled about when he made his re-appearance for the 50th anniversary.
  11. And whilst having a clear out of a relatives house, also found this (art looks familiar, where have I seen that before?๐Ÿ˜‰)
  12. Seeing this reminded me I have a couple of related items lying around. First, a "Complete Vocal Collection Vol. 1" (not sure if I ever had "Vol. 2"):
  13. I think its reasonably well known that "Bubblegum Crisis" took inspiration from a whole slew of other works, though one of the lesser known ones may be "Streets of Fire", which I got to watch a couple months back. Made by the same guy that made "The Warriors", it wasn't very successful on release but was apparently very popular and influential in Japan. The opening sequence in particular might seem a bit familiar to "Crisis" fans (with not as many killer cyborgs, admittedly... this isn't the full opening, which if anything feels even more, er, "inspiring").
