Dawn of the Doctor, a mini-telecomic

history of the time war
PREVIOUSLY: The Night of The Doctor.

Set at the end of The Night of the Doctor, in this version we get to see the regeneration. On telly Paul McGann drops out of sight, but in this version he falls against that stone slab he was propped up against earlier and changes into John Hurt! I also made up a mock title sequence for along the top of the page, adapted from the NotD intro.

Given the Hurt Doctor’s reluctance to even be called “the Doctor” anymore, it seemed only right that it should be the first words he says in this version. As you would expect, all the shots of John Hurt in this are from the BBC’s 1979 production of Crime And Punishment.

In this version he doesn’t put the bandolier thingy on, as adding it to every shot of him would have been a nightmare. It was hard enough putting Hurt’s head on McGann’s body…

And then it’s off to Gallifrey, where Cardinal Servalan Olistra and a younger looking ¬†Rassilon from The Living Daylights are waiting!

Having younger versions of Jacqueline Pearce and Timothy Dalton in the mix was too good an opportunity to pass on. Think of The Time War as the ultimate Doctor Who meets Alien meets Blake’s Seven meets James Bond crossover!

BLOOPERS! – The Space Pirates

Over at Whoflix, we’ve just uploaded our latest fan edit of episode 2, so here we look at the surprisingly low number of bloopers in the episode…

We can forgive them for thinking that they would still have cathode ray tube tv’s in the future [maybe retro is back in vogue then] but why does the telly have a hood on the screen? And why did nobody think to write LIZ79 on the side of the LIZ79?

We all know the urban myths of wobbly sets and the like but yes, those really are egg boxes!

Just above Clancy’s head as he enters, you can see a boom mic shadow…

There’s those egg boxes again!

Looks like that boom mic shadow has followed Clancy from his ship to Hermack’s!

Here’s an interesting continuity error. If you look at the model shot of Warne’s ship as it sets off after Clancy, the nose of the model moves from shot one to shot two!

BLOOPERS! – Underworld

Over at Whoflix, we’ve just uploaded our latest Fan Edit, the dodgy CSO-fest that is Dr Who In Some Caves. So what better time to have a look at the bloopers in the story, although in some ways the production itself is the biggest blooper of the lot!

Even though the CSO screen for the story is blue, for some reason they put a green background in some shots instead of the space whirlpool, like this one..underworld blooper 2

Only to put the space whirlpool in others, like this one!underworld blooper 2.1

Looks like amongst all the other gifts the Time Lords gave the Minions was the gift of Blu-tack to help keep their microphones in place…underworld blooper 3

Who’s this then? Is he a member of the Minion Crew we never get to meet? Or is he some BBC bod who’s just got himself in shot!underworld blooper 8
