Oh man, if they want a winning "Acknowledge the RTD era with subtlety and not an overbearing reference", it's that.

Re: Chibs' Replacement?

2. Don’t redesign the interior to be ‘zany’ - yes, please get rid you what you inherit, but go for something like the Capaldi silver console and not some ‘hilarious’ mis-match of bits of junk with biscuits popping out. Everything about the 13 console screams "Going for Davies Era vibes". In additio...

Re: George Lucas style Special Editions

What I really want is an extended cut of "Twice Upon a Time." In an interview, Moffat said the first cut was "Longer than Dunkirk. The actual battle, not the movie." Which makes me think there was a more coherent story in there that got cut WAY down for time. Oooooh - maybe we need to start a ‘Snyd...

Re: The “Questions for The Lurker” thread

A very random question for the Lurker that does not impede on future release secrets: So, the Omega figure - For those who don't have him, he has a VERY detailed body sculpt under that cloth cloak - Details that we never see onscreen. Was this just artistic license? Or was this body created for reus...

Re: USA Toy stock now available

The last Lurker statement on this was inconclusive, but alluded to a distinct Amazon US possibility. I also love and encourage support for WhoNA too, but the markup on the sets admittedly is substantial. (For example, they still have the "Witch's Familiar" set if anyone's looking....for $49.99 USD. ...

Re: Chibs' Replacement?

(They've ruled out Kevin Smith haven't they?) I mean, American. They won't even let a (talented) writer in from over here, no way they're letting a (substantially less qualified) Showrunner. J. Michael Straczynski (also American, Babylon 5/Sens8) actually announced he would happily run Who for Seri...

Re: The “Questions for The Lurker” thread

Al will History of the Daleks sets cover 2005 onwards, if they continue? Congratulations on the success of all sets but especially the Dalek sets. Thanks Considering how rare the retooled Bronze Daleks with the more in-scale arms are, I hope so! Although, geez, it's ELEVEN extra sets pre-Chibnall (...

Re: B&M doctor who sets.

Hard agreement. Ian really put this over the top for me; It was great already with Voord and Sensorites and I was hoping for more sets....until he was included, and I realized that whatever we get is going to maximize what Al and Character can do. If it's 80s sets, suddenly Tegan, Turlough, and the ...

Re: Chibs' Replacement?

The Radio Times actually nails it, and seems to diplomatically imply Showrunner replacement is needed/what the show desperately needs.
