William Hartnell in COLOUR!

See if you can spot which Hartnell stories these are from!

I thought you might like to see the raw frames before any artwork filters etc get applied. I`m really pleased with the way some of these colourised screengrabs have turned out, especially the last one where Billy`s bent over the blob. Just fits perfectly. Great fun to do, although I freely admit I`m not the greatest of colourisers – that honour goes to the incomparable Stuart Humphreys of Babelcolour fame.

Now if only I had the time, energy and patience for rotoscoping like a certain Mr Kelvington…

BLOOPERS! – Genesis of the Daleks

Genesis is the latest Fan Edit I`m working on and, guess what, I spotted some Bloopers…

first up, here`s a lovely boom shadow on Davros` bonce…

Not entirely sure about this next one, but can we really be sure this studio light was meant to be seen?

and finally, looks like the Thals decided to cut corners – and ceilings – when they built their city…

Ratings Graphs – Colin Baker

Poor old Colin! Brilliant Doctor at just the wrong time in the show`s history. And nowhere is that more “graphically” illustrated than in the shedding of three million viewers between seasons…

Ratings Graph – Peter Davison

Here is the latest Ratings Graph, this time for Fifth Doctor Peter Davison`s episodes.
One of the good things about showing the ratings like this is that it makes the changes in the viewing figures much clearer than a simple list of figures ever could.

Some interesting things to note here:
The top [average] rated Davison story was BLACK ORCHID!
Only two stories gained viewers with every episode – FOUR TO DOOMSDAY and THE VISITATION
The only Davison story to lose viewers with every episode was WARRIORS OF THE DEEP
From SNAKEDANCE to ENLIGHTENMENT, episodes 2 & 4 did far better than episodes 1 & 3
His first year averaged about 2 million more viewers than his second and third
