The Two Masters!

Never mind all the sadness of Capaldi’s impending regeneration, or the anticipation of the return of the Mondas Cybermen, following The Moff’s warning at the recent screening of The Pilot, fandom was scratching it’s collective head as to what the Mega Spoiler at the end of episode one was going to be…

until today.

Was it going to be a cameo of River and Eleven at the frost fair in episode three?

No.

Was it Jenny, the Doctor’s Daughter?

No.

Was it Susan, the Doctor’s Granddaughter?

No.

Was it Polly, turning up to help defeat the Mondas Cybs in the finale?

No.

So what could this mega-spoiler possibly be?

Well, it was this:

 

 

I bet nobody saw that one coming, I certainly didn’t!

Can’t wait to see how Simm and Gomez are going to get on together…

Exciting as the news is, Whopix can’t help thinking that perhaps two incarnations of the Master and the Mondas Cybermen in the series finale  is maybe a bit much? Having Simm and Gomez on screen together would make a two-part finale on its own, and the idea of having two incarnations of the Master meeting each other has been done before…

And if the BBC Publicity Dept hadn’t stuck Simm in the trailer, I wonder how much longer they would have managed to keep his inclusion under wraps? We haven’t had a real surprise reveal since Derek Jacobi told us who he really was in Utopia

Despite being comprehensively spoiled by the Press, fandom can at least hold its collective breath for the next eleven weeks until in antici…pation of Simm’s return to the show, and wonder just how the Simm incarnation of the Master is going to get along with the Gomez incarnation of the Master…

…as well as wondering just how two Masters are tied up with whatever the Mondas Cybermen are up to. Still, not long to wait and now we know the last two episode titles…!

Is Bill O’Reilly a Dr Who Fan???

If you were watching the March 25th edition of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, during the “Is It Legal?” segment with Kimberley Guilfoyle, you would have seen Bill O’Reilly use a mobile phone to illustrate one of the items in the piece….

So, who would ever have thought they would ever see Bill O’Reilly holding a Tardis-backed phone? Surely it can’t be his phone? Can it?

Maybe he borrowed it from Craig Ferguson…

 

You can see the Tardis phone clip from The Factor on YouTube HERE

Mooncrest Models Tardis Console

I have never understood why Character Options never made the classic Tardis console one of their collect-and-build sets – are you seriously trying to tell me they wouldn’t sell better than a bloody Vespiform?

Mooncrest Models have got the right idea, their Tardis Console is a thing of beauty and I hope they sell shitloads.

CGI Who? It’s closer than you think…

Take a look at this video.

Now if you were anything like me your reaction will have been as “WTF? OMG!” as mine was. I had no idea photo-realistic CG humans were this far advanced but the possibilities for recreating all those Missing Episodes of Classic Who are immediately obvious. And surely that photo-CG would be more achievable – and cheaper – in greyscale?

Once this sort of thing becomes affordable, I can’t imagine that it won’t be long before the technology moves outside of the gaming industry to Hollywood.  Sure there will be all sorts of legalities to be sorted out regarding using the likenesses of dead Hollywood actors but they did get Laurence Olivier into Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow ten years ago so they are clearly not insurmountable even now.

Any dead Hollywood icon could be CGI’d, there’s already software that can create 3D models from photos so you could combine that with motion capture to recreate anyone from Humphrey Bogart to William Hartnell. And that means you could finally create a version of The Three Doctors that includes Hartnell in the mix. My photocomic version of the story shows how it could have worked and the idea of a full motion version sends my inner fanboy straight to Squee-ville. We’ve already had the colour Hartnell made for the Fifty Years Trailer so let’s hope we get a photo-CG Hartnell version of The Three Doctors for the Sixtieth Anniversary – who knows where this technology will be in 2023!

Maybe this is why the release of The Underwater Menace hasn’t been announced yet…
