02.01.19   DVD & VHS covers for
RESOLUTION

Okay, I take it back.

This was probably
Chibnall's best story

But is it me?

I thought I'd seen
a lot of it before
somewhere...

DALEK
for instance?

Don't get me wrong -
this was his best
story, but if he really
is serious about not
relying on old foes,
his own have got to
much better than
they have been.

I also suspect the BBC
will force him to do a
special in time for
Christmas 2019 -
I think they're starting
to regret giving him
so much lattitude
and really if RTD & SM
can do them with
longer seasons,
why can't he?
It doesn't have to be
Christmas-themed -
usually they're better
when they're not IMHO

I'm working on my
MATT SMITH
update now, so
hopefully that will
be here in the
none too distant
future.

Happy New Year!

Martin
   
         
10.12.18   DVD & VHS covers for
THE BATTLE OF
RANSKOOR AV KOLOS

This was probably
Chibnall's best story
this series, but then
a series finale should
be decent. That said,
I have quite a few
issues with it, not
least the summoning
of the TARDIS without
much effort seemingly
- how many times could
a plot have been solved
before by have it appear
and everybody just pile
in? Without it, the
Doctor's fix was dead
in the water

Overall, I can't hand on
heart give this new
series the ringing
endorsement so
many others seem
keen to do. A couple
of great episodes,
neither by Chibnall,
and a lot of average
to mediocre ones.

THe main cast are fine,
although Mandip Gill is
criminally underused.
Jodie and Bradley are
definitely the bright
points.

I'll give the series
6 out of 10 max -
Chibnall, you really
are going to have to
do better.

But then, you're going
to have plenty of time
aren't you...???!!!
   
         
03.12.18   DVD & VHS covers for
IT TAKES YOU AWAY

It was okay, but was a
bit patchy. I just wish
if we were going to
have a '2001' moment
at the end, we'd got
something other than
the frog - or at least
a better CGI frog,
that one was as bad
if not worse than the
Pting...

In fact, I would have
expected 'Granny Five'
myself...

So, how will Chibnall
round things off?

Hopefully with something
better than he's written
so far - the best episodes
have all been by other
people IMHO...

See you next week!
   
         
26.11.18   DVD & VHS covers for
THE WITCHFINDERS

I did have a few issues
with this episode, but
overall it still proved
rule 'No interference
from Chibnall and
a better episode it
will be.'

One more solo effort
this coming week and
then he returns to
close the season.

I only hope he hasn't
closed it for good,
given rumours of
JODIE departing
sooner rather than
later etcetera...
   
         
19.11.18  

DVD & VHS covers for
KERBLAM!

Kerblam by name and
Kerblam by nature!


IMHO this is what we
should've had from
the word go!

Great idea, well executed, everyone got a good
proportion of the action, some references for the fans, good dialogue, super effects and
enough twists to keep
everyone guessing until the final few minutes.
Oh, and the odd emotional
moment too.

Well done, Pete McTighe!

For me, these last two episodes are head and shoulders
above the rest - and not a Chibnall in sight! I hope it continues...


   
12.11.18   DVD & VHS covers for
DEMONS OF THE PUNJAB

Hurrah, Chibnall's done
something right...

He didn't tamper with
someone else's story!


Seriously, I mean that -
this is the first story
solely written by someone
else, and it showed.

I'm not saying it was
perfect, but it was by
far the best so far, ROSA
being the closest.

I hope that means this
series is finally getting
its act together...
     
05.11.18   DVD & VHS covers
for THE TSURANGA
CONUNDRUM
    I have to say, at this halfway
point in the season, that while I think the cast are great, with plaudits going to
JODIE and BRADLEY,
the stories are lacking,
laboured and are not worth
the extra running time IMHO.

Out of ten, I'd give the first half of the season a four.


I've heard rumours the Christmas
Special has been scrapped
because of a 'lack of ideas'. If the season so far is an
indicator, I can believe it.


For God's sake Chibnall, do something!

Corrected VHS cover
for ROSA
     
22.10.18   DVD & VHS covers
for ROSA
     
16.10.18   How many different
versions of this
bloody logo are there
going to be?!

I reckon it's up to
five now - black, white, yellow, on fire/singed and now
copper beveled reflecting the background - and that's not including
they don't know whether
to use it stripped or
with DOCTOR on top
of WHO, as used at
the Sheffield 'red carpet'
bash and on some of
the new books

Big sigh!!!

So, I have re-done
my initial covers using
an HD frame grab of the
logo from the title
sequence - not sold
on most of that either,
first and last bits good,
middle (where the logo is)
is a bit underwhelming.

Anyway...

DVD & VHS covers
for THE GHOST
MONUMENT and

(updated)
     
08.10.18   Back with my first
JODIE WHITTAKER
covers!

I have to say that
while the story was
pretty thin, all
the leading cast, and
Jodie in particular,
were excellent.

I'm still reserving
notice on the
writing front...

DVD & VHS covers
for THE WOMAN WHO
FELL TO EARTH
     
06.10.18   *** UPDATE #9***

Well, just made it!

DAVID TENNANT
section fully updated
(0.6 Gb of new/updated covers!)

Good luck to
JODIE WHITTAKER on her debut tomorrow. I know I've been rather
down on this series, but I
don't blame her personally
for the negatives I've seen so far, and I will be watching the full series
regardless.

I just hope Chibnall delivers, because I would hate for the series to die now and for
it all to be blamed on her, which would be most unfair.

I'll be updating the site as
soon as I can after each
episode airs with covers, though with it moving to
Sunday nights that's not
as easy as previously.

I hope you'll look back
for what I produce.

Bye for now!

Martin
     
25.09.18   Sorry, been a little busy to comment on the recent trailers

'Glass ceiling'?
Subtle as a brick.

'It's About Time'?
Second brick...

Second proper trailer?
Hurrah, something decent!

Still not much to show,
music pretty rubbish,
but a lot better overall.
I'll give it 7 out of 10.

I've heard rumours the
TARDIS doesn't even
appear in episode 1,
so am not holding my
breath.

Chibnall - you still have
an awful lot of convincing
to do here.

PLEASE - don't break
our favourite show!

The last thing I want to
write is
DOCTOR WHO
1963 - 2017.

Prove me wrong... PLEASE!
     
20.07.18   Why didn't they just show
the Comic-Con trailer on
BBC One in the first
place at the weekend?

For those who don't know,
it landed on the channel
just before 7pm (UK)
tonight.

Either the World Cup
build-up should have been
for that, or they should
have left it alone and just
dropped it tonight anyway.

I think the World Cup 'thing'
was just a ploy to get more
viewers for the football
and will certainly have done
the series no good.

I hope the cost of making it
came out of Worldwide's
promotional budget, not the
series' own budget, as it
could definitely been better
spent on the series proper.

Here's hoping there's no more
blunders before the series
finally starts!

Hope to have the new
DAVID TENNANT
content up then, although
running into a few issues
coding the new layout, so
that part of the update
will propably get put
back, sorry!

Bye for now

Martin
     
19.07.18   BREATHES SIGH
OF RELIEF!

Thank God the Comic-Con
trailer delivered!

Now, that is what I call a
PROPER trailer!

A proper voiceover
from Jodie, good
footage from upcoming
episodes and even
proper dialogue from
her Doctor!

The thing is...
Joe Public won't have
seen this, only the
cr*p from the
weekend -
by putting that out
instead of this,
have they killed
Joe Public's interest?

Time alone will tell.

I am now a *lot*
more confident
Chibnall's not going
to make a mess of it,
but we're not out of the
woods yet!
     
15.07.18   Sorry, not a site update, just a few comments on the anticapated trailer for the new series that finally aired today.

AARRRGGHHH!!!
What the hell was that?

Chibnall -
Are you trying to kill this
series before you even start?

How does showing Jodie
wafting through a diner and
(presumably) Yasmin's
house/flat interfering
with her companions dinners
endear me to watch this
more than an episode
of EASTENDERS???

SPOILER ALERT!!!
Jodie's Doctor likes
sausage and egg!
(since she nicks Ryan's)

WOW!
Zero out of ten

Has done absolutely
NOTHING
to make me want to
watch - and I don't
see how this will make
new viewers climb on
board either.

There isn't even a shot of
the new TARDIS, which
has already been released.

MAJOR YAWN!!!

Hope to be back soon with
new
DAVID TENNANT
content, cheers!

Martin
     
27.12.17   Great Christmas Special,
right upto the point
Peter's Doctor departed!

Am I alone in thinking
Chibnall basically lifted
Matt Smith's first scenes and
used it to introduce Jodie's Doctor?
How similar can you get?!

So far, Chibnall inspires
no confidence in me whatsoever.
I am
very worried, but
I really hope I'm proved wrong...

01.01.16   Hello everyone!
Happy New Year!

This update is purely to
apologise to artist
Martin Proctor
for both mis-attributing
his artwork I colourised
for my VHS covers for
THE ANDROIDS OF TARA
to another artist, and also
for not contacting him
to get his permission for
doing so and for using
his THE STONES OF BLOOD
and THE ARMAGEDDON
FACTOR (originally presented
in IN-VISION magazine just as
ARMAGEDDON) pieces.

As you know, I say
to try and get an artist's
permission if you can,
but it isn't always possible
to find current contact
details, as in
Martin's
case.

So, my sincerest apologies
to
Martin for this and I
can assure him my covers
have been amended as have
their respective pages.

See you all soon!

go missing that is!

Secondly, welcome
to our new Doctor

Hello everyone!

Well, I never meant it to take so long doing the
PERTWEE update - as you know various things in my life have intervened to stop it getting finished earlier. However, I have finally managed it and so here is the fully updated section - enjoy!

The official Region 1 covers available for some stories were found on the internet and are only available at a reduced resolution; sorry about that. If I find others and at a better resolution, I'll upload them.

I hope to upload all the covers for recent releases
in the
HARTNELL and TROUGHTON section that I've missed shortly - and by that I do mean within the next couple of weeks rather than years! - before starting on the first part of the TOM BAKER update.

I say 'first part', since after seeing how long it's taken me to do JON and
with
TOM's reign lasting even longer, it makes sense to do it in stages. Hence, my next update
will cover the years
1975 to early 1978 or ROBOT through to THE INVASION OF TIME.

Best wishes

Martin
     
18.05.12   My apologies to you all, but the TROUGHTON update will be delayed for some time due to the passing of my father Roy earlier today. Along with the funeral details, there are many other things that will need attending to over the coming weeks and I'm afraid the sites will just have to wait. I will be back just as soon as I can. I know you all will understand.

section fully updated

DVD covers in official BBC Region 2 format added
HARTNELL
DVD covers in official BBC Region 1 format added

Revised navigation system added to
HARTNELL section - to be implemented on each Doctor's update

Update monitor (far left) shows updated Doctors (gold surround), pending Doctor (flashing) and to follow (dark picture)

-------------------------------------

Hello everyone! I've finally decided what to do regarding revising my navigation - I hope it's fairly obvious when you get there. Select the HARTNELL section as normal and you'll see what's happening; I've gone for an extension of the current system, so I hope it's fairly logical.

I had to bring in something because of the new sections I'll be doing for each story released on DVD - Region 1 USA and Region 2 UK official BBC-style covers!

I know, I've said in the past I don't like the official R2 style because of all the roundel space wasted, but if you use it instead... So anyway, the official cover will appear along with a photo-montage and artwork version by me!

The Region 1 USA covers I've decided to do because a lot of sites that used to do them appear to be defunct, so I've decided to put some up of my own. Unlike the Region 2 covers, I don't have any official copies to scan so the BBC cover doesn't appear on the site - sorry about that. If you have a copy of any you can scan for me to put up, please contact me on the usual e-mail address.

I'm not sure how many new covers there are in addition to all the updated covers - and ALL the other covers are updated in some way, even if it's just to 1-to-1 print size. I think there's at least 50 completely new covers, if not more, so a significant addition. I hope to put the next update up much sooner, but won't put a date on it as you never know what life's going to throw your way to mess things up!
