Glasgow Film and Comic Con – Day 2

Comic Con is always a highlight. If you’re like me, then the dealer’s hall is great fun, wandering around spotting fun t-shirts and retro toys from your childhood (oh how that G1 Metroplex was tempting), alongside spotting glimpses of famous faces from the various shows I’ve enjoyed over the years.Glasgow Film and Comic Con 2016

This year, I attended on the Sunday, so it was a bit quieter than the busy Saturday. The signings had been moved up to a new area upstairs, overlooking the river, which made for a much nicer, bright, open area. Various cult figures were present, including Jimmy Vee, Ray Park, Margot Kidder and Sean Astin.

However for me, there was one guest I had to see. The Sixth Doctor himself, Colin Baker. (more…)

Big Finish – Doctor Who Main Range 205 – Planet of the Rani

Miasimia Goria, once a quiet planet, now the remnant of the Rani’s failed experiment to create a race of new gods. Decades later, as the Rani languishes in a high security jail chosen specially by the Doctor as the most suitable containment for her, her mind remains free, and plotting. By the time the Doctor returns to speak about her parole hearing, he finds to his cost the dangers of underestimating the Rani’s resourceful, ever calculating nature.  Now the captive is the captor, and the Doctor will learn that there are things in his past that won’t be forgotten.  The only thing that could save him is that the Rani’s desire to finish her experiment may just be greater than her thirst for revenge. But on the ruins of Miasimia Goria, the Rani’s unexpected legacy may prove too much for both of them…

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 :-)

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?

This is excellent news, as the original was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the 50th anniversary.
