Star Trek Continues – The White Iris

We’re big fans of the Star Trek fan series, Star Trek Continues here at Outpost Skaro. So when they announced a certain Colin Baker was guest starring in their fourth episode it seemed like a perfect combination.

Well, the episode has now been released online for us all to enjoy :-)

Doctor Who Main Range – The Last of the Cybermen

It’s ten years since the Great Cyber War was ended by a final assault on Telos after the tables had been turned by the Glittergun’s lethal efficacy.  But out in the furthest edges of the galaxy a strange reminder of the Cyberr-ace remains: a hundreds of feet high Giant Cyberhead.  

A monument? A memorial? A tomb? The Doctor sets out to discover what it is… but he fails to return.  Inside the TARDIS Jamie and Zoe’s worried waiting is interrupted by a brightly dressed stranger who insists that he’s the Doctor.  But why here? Why Now?  Has the universe really seen the last of the Cybermen?

The Flash 1×23 – Fast Enough

rs_560x415-150519061537-560.The-Flash-Fast-Enough-JR-51915[1]Whereas many shows are happy to follow the pattern of “intro-build-build-shiny thing” then repeat, spacing out the ‘big’ events across the season as it develops, Flash hasn’t taken that approach. Instead it’s been “shiny-shiny-shiny-giant psychic gorilla”. It’s all been building to this. Last time, Flash had finally managed to capture Wells with help from some of the proto-Justice League. Where do they go from here?

The Flash 1×22 – Rogue Air

cold

With one episode to go to the finale, The Flash serves up a real fan pleaser that not only allows familiar faces from throughout the first season to make a reappearance, but also works nicely to continue building up Barry’s character as he finds his way as a hero.

Indeed it’s Barry’s story that forms the meat of the episode. The spectre of the Reverse Flash looms large as Barry allows his inability to defeat Wells to make him doubt himself. As Wells activates the particle accelerator Barry is determined to save the Metahumans they’ve got locked up in it, but finds himself up against obstacles and bad choices at every turn. (more…)

Two Daleks have been seen roaming around Newcastle city centre in advance of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular hitting the Metro Radio Arena in the city on Thursday 28th May during half-term. It is thought they had escaped from the show and were hunting the Doctor Or trying to get their protuberances out for a stint on Geordie Shores…

New on the BBC – Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Magic. In the old days it was everywhere and dominated everything. The legends tell of great magicians and their multitude of feats and miracles. But that was long ago and now people only talk about magic and treat it as pleasant dinner diversion. No one is silly enough to believe it’s real. No one is silly enough to try it out, are they? 

 

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell

 

When a wager leads to the discovery of the first real magician in 300 years, the mysterious Mr Norrell, a series of prophesied events are set in motion, leading to the reveal of another magician, Jonathan Strange.  While Norrell is bookish and shy Strange is Charming and at ease.

The Flash 1×21 – Grodd Lives

The-Flash-Gorilla-Grodd-Image-TrailerWay back in episode 1, we saw an empty cage labelled Grodd that looked like it had been ripped apart. Since then, we’ve had the odd tease of an intelligent ape down in the sewers beneath Central City. With the show living within the constraints of a TV budget on the CW, the expectation of much more Grodd than that seemed unlikely. However, despite the such limitations, Grodd is realised pretty well, and whilst his time on-screen is restricted, and he’s generally seen in dark sewers, his presence is felt throughout the episode.
