The Tenth Planet – Animated!

Good News and Bad News.

The Good News is that, according to doctor who dot tv, the missing fourth episode of The Tenth Planet is to be animated. Hooray!

The Bad News is that they’re using the same crap animation as Reign of Terror. Boo!

The animation for Reign was bloody awful overall and really dreadful in places, a huge disappointment, especially since the clips we saw prior to the release looked really good. Clearly they were the best bits, the rest was terrible. I bought the DVD the same day as DWM457 and I wish I`d read David Darlington`s review first before I bought the bloody thing. If I`d known how bad it was I would have put it back and waited until I could get it on Amazon for a fiver!

When I got the DVD home I went straight to Episode Four. I lasted ten minutes before I switched it off…

Whilst it`s great news that the episode will be released in animated form, we can only hope that Planet Shitty have learned their lesson from the mistakes they made on Reign and do the episode, and the story, justice.

I did a Tenth Planet Fan Edit a while back which is still available to download. I`ll be updating this Edit when the DVD comes out, but whether I`ll include the animated footage is another question… let`s just hope and pray that Tenth Planet turns out better than Reign of Terror did!

Come back Cosgrove Hall, all is forgiven!

BLOOPERS! – The Armageddon Factor

Having recently completed the Fan Edit of this story, I discovered all sorts of lovely bloopers that I`d completely missed when I watched the story the first time round when it came out on DVD.

First, you can here see where the top of the Tardis set stops…

And again here! What was Michael Hayes thinking of?

Wobbly sets are actually quite rare in Classic Who, but this one is a cracker! Watch closely as the Doctor comes in and closes the doors behind him – the entire wall moves! armageddon factor blooper 3.2

Keep an eye on the top of the screen in this shot and you can see a studio light as the camera pans past…

Here’s one you will certainly have missed – I did and it just goes to show how you can miss what’s right in front of you! When the Doctor gets shrunk and runs across to Drax you can see that Tom Baker is wearing a clip-on microphone!

This is the one that most people know about – the Mute trips up on a bit of carpet, gawd knows why it’s there – probably put there to deaden the sound of the Mutes’ clumping great Doc Marten boots on the studio floor…

No idea what this is that you can see through the gap in the set, probably a studio monitor…
armageddon factor blooper 7

At last! A boom mic shadow!
armageddon factor blooper 8

Since when did the Doctor cover the walls of the Tardis` corridors in black bin bags?
armageddon factor blooper 9

Here`s our old friend, the white gaffa-taped tardis console cable! armageddon factor blooper 10

And finally, when the Doctor moves towards the Key, sat on that glass-topped table from earlier, you can see where the edge of the Tardis set stops!
