Fan Edit Finale!

Whilst everyone else is busy raving, and justifiably so, over the latest announcements from Big Finish – New Series characters plus Classic Doctors? Yeehah! Surely it can’t be long before Capaldi’s predecessors join in too? – over here in our little corner of the Internet we have our own reasons to be cheerful…

Today marks the end of a creative project that has seen me Fan Edit every single Doctor Who story from the Classic Series. All One Hundred And Fifty Six of them, including Tom Baker’s Shada.

It’s taken me six years, but today I’ve finally finished my last Classic Series Doctor Who Fan Edit…

PYRAMIDS CD

Pyramids of Mars has just been uploaded to Whoflix and it’s the final fan edit in a journey that has taken me the best part of six years. But now, at last, the Classic Series is done.

I’m proud to have been the one to pioneer the Fan Editing of Doctor Who, I’m delighted that my work has inspired other Fan Editors, and I’m pleased to have achieved the distinction of being the first fan to fan edit the entire Classic Series. Yay!

Fan Edits now exist for every story from An Unearthly Child to The Parting of The Ways.

Job Done.

Costume Conundrum Solved!

Remember how the Fourth Doctor’s costume suddenly went from THIS outfit

dr who costume change 1

at the end of The Horns of Nimon to THIS outfit

dr who costume change 2

at the start of The Leisure Hive

with NO on screen explanation?

The answer has been hiding in plain site all this time, and it doesn’t involves a comic strip trip to the planet Kolpasha…

There are numerous instances where it’s pretty obv that the Doctor’s adventures don’t always happen to him in the order in which they are transmitted to us. Like twice in the McCoy era, for instance.

Take Season Seventeen for example…

doctor who season seventeen wrong order

… it’s in the wrong order. Which is to say that the transmission order of the stories isn’t the chronological order in which they happened for the Doctor and Romana.

But this is…

doctor who season seventeen correct order

There’s no Continuity between the individual stories, unlike Season Eighteen, so they can go in any order you like. And if they’re ordered like they are above, then the Doctor getting Mandrell’d provides the perfect excuse for Romana to take him shopping for a new outfit…

YouTube – Here we go again…

youtube video blocked
Apart from the fact that the Copyright Police blocked it once before and then just as mysteriously unblocked it – I really wish these bastards would make their fucking minds up – it really pisses me off that they are so random in who they pick on.

If you are one of the 23,000+ people who liked the video,thank you.

Daleks on HIGNFY

In the Odd One Out Round from last night’s ep of Have I Got News For You, someone working on the show is clearly a Who Fan – nobody else would go to all the trouble of digging out a photo from The Dalek Invasion of Earth!

Richard Hammond IS Anthony Ainley!

At the launch of the latest Clarkson, Hammond and May “Not Top Gear” Tour in Belfast, Richard “hamster” Hammond sported a familiar looking goatee beard…

BLOOPERS! The Ark In Space

This Tom Baker classic, our latest Fan edit over at Whoflix, does quite well blooper-wise, and no, bubblewrap doesn’t count!

First up, here’s Sarah Jane doing a Jo and flashing her knickers!

ark space blooper 1

In this one, there are a couple of things that give away that the Ark isn’t in Space at all but resting in a BBC TV studio… on the floor…

ark space blooper 2

And again here, only much more obvious this time, is that grey studio floor [why did nobody think of painting it black?] and the rope lights used for the stars!

BLOOPERS! The Time Monster

As if there wasn’t already more than enough that’s wrong with The Time Monster in the story and cast departments, here are the bloopers!

First up, that shadow in the corner is the camera that’s just taken the close up of Jo…

time monster blooper 1.1

If you think being able to see the inside of the Police Box prop counts as a blooper, then this next one is a blooper. If not, don’t worry, there’s plenty more!

Lab Boom Mic Shadow #1…

time monster blooper 1.4

This one’s a cracker – for some reason the Police Box prop is missing it’s floor!

time monster blooper 4.1

Director Paul Bernard made an unfortunate choice of camera angle for this shot, as the backdrop doesn’t match where the TARDIS was in the previous scene!

time monster blooper 4.2

Here’s Jo flashing her knickers…

time monster blooper 4.3

…and here’s the boom mic shadow that appears above her head just after!

time monster blooper 4.4

Lab Boom Mic Shadow #2…

time monster blooper 4.5

As promised, here’s Jo flashing her knickers. Again.

time monster blooper 5.1

The Doctor may have redecorated the console room, but he still hasn’t found a way to hide that bloody cable!

time monster blooper 5.2

Not to be outdone in the knicker flashing stakes, here’s Hippias and his red pants!

time monster blooper 6.1

That shadow in the bottom right hand corner looks like a camera to me…

time monster blooper 6.2

Here you can see the wooden handle the prop boys use to turn the Time Ram dial…

time monster blooper 6.3

And finally, if you look you can see that something else used to sit here on the console before the Time Ram dial was put in…

time monster blooper 6.4
