    Well this is annoying, the zygon invasion book has been delayed a full year! Now listed as July 2023 on Amazon and on penguin books site. I’m so tired of books getting delayed. Why bother announcing them if they aren’t going to be ready? And a full year? So infuriating!

      That’s very true boo boo, still frustrating though. My mental health is helped by my books so a delay to books I was looking forward to is hard. Mind the record at the moment is a crime novel that was scheduled for March 2019 and is now scheduled as June 2022!

    East Bristol Auctions have a DW auction, live and online, ending on April 21st. They have quite a few older Harrop figures for those who are interested, and I was thinking it’s possible they might go for less than ebay prices – but remember to read the Ts and Cs re. commission and postage. (There’s no Cyberleader though, which I know someone here really wanted.)

    Reply
    • April 3rd, 2022 - 11:45am

      Would that. Lydia is a great actress. I hope Davies doesn’t wimp out and cast a man. The next doctor has to be a women.

    • the Ergon

      April 7th, 2022 - 7:46pm

      Yes and more importantly a woman of colour with all those characteristics the Doctor needs. Thats why lydia fits the bill. Jodies fine but i felt her being cast was just to help out her mate chris chibnall, both fresh from Broadchurch’ success but neither seemed to have settled or felt comfortable in the Doctor Who world and she has been let down for the most part with tryout inexperienced writers that didn,t serve her well either with convoluted anticlimatic story arcs and revelations. Though some of her standalones from the first series, which were highly criticised, I liked better. She may or may not hit her stride come the Easter Special (the Trailer looks good) or her final story, but after nearly 4 years she at least deserves a decent send off even if we don,t see her regenerate in the conventional way.

    • April 8th, 2022 - 9:41am

      I’ve enjoyed Jodie’s era. Series 12 and 13 were great. I really don’t understand the criticism of the writing. Its no different to Davies tendency towards melodrama or Moffat’s towards complexity. I’ve really loved Jodie and my who memories go right back to Jon pertwee

    • Barkley

      April 9th, 2022 - 5:53pm

      I kinda prefer Tnia Miller, she has a slightly older vibe and has a commanding presence that I haven’t seen from Lydia (in anything I’ve seen of her atleast) and that’s important for me, as I feel the commanding presence of the Doctor is something Jodie lacked also, which is fine, but I worry about two incarnations in a row, especially the first two full-time female incarnations, it might not look great. (I have faith in whatever RTD decides tho)

    • The ergon

      April 10th, 2022 - 1:20am

      If you saw her in is a sin she was the heart and soul of that series. She was rather good in RTDs years and years but that was morean ensemble of shared acting talent and she was easily the best thing about Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss modern spin on Dracula. I think tnia whyllst a very good actress might be a little too commanding for my taste but the connections are there again. Ill bet there are a few good black actresses in the running though there are a lot of core fans who would just happily return to formula.

    Just wondered if anyone could help me. I’m missing lots of eaglemoss back issues so today I rang up and they’re going to gradually start sending them out. Because of the backlog however they’re going to take some close together payments adding up to over £100 which I cannot afford at the moment. I’ve managed to cancel the Gravis special as that brought the price down a bit. But I would also like to cancel the cleaner robot special. They said they can’t do that at the minute as the man on the phone didn’t have the particular names and numbers in front of him to cancel it.

    So I was wondering, what pair of figurines does the cleaner robot come with. If it came with issues 211 and 212 for example, I could ring up after 209 and 210 came and say ‘for the next payment would it be possible to cancel the special that comes with the next two issues’

    Because they don’t seem to be able to cancel anything too far forward with me being so behind.

You can find part 3 and 4 of the 80s video on YouTube, which was uploaded 13 years ago. Does anyone here have copies of the videos or an alternative way of viewing them?

      To be honest dav the books were originally released around 10 years ago on audio. I don’t know if the audio versions were being rereleased as no other book site apart from Amazon has the two David Fisher books listed as audio releases (the three new books are listed as audios) but not the two Fisher books.

    • Book collector

      March 24th, 2022 - 5:31pm

      I’ve looked into it a bit more and it looks like the Fisher books were not being released as audios. Presumably as they have already been released before. It looks as if Amazon listed them in error

    • Rex Farrel

      March 23rd, 2022 - 3:08pm

      It was made in SD for the first two years, and presumably didn’t sell well enough for an upscaled complete series set. They didn’t go back and do series three on blu either.

    • the Ergon

      March 23rd, 2022 - 7:23pm

      Its such a shame they released only 4 and 5 on Bluray.. Its still an excellent series that would be great upscaled. Maybe the interest waned after RTD left but for a new generation and Nostalgists such as myself, and the return of Russell, surely a revisitation is possible during or when they start work on nu who collection boxsets.

    • MIKK89

      March 25th, 2022 - 2:12pm

      I don’t think With Sarah Jane Adventures, the interest declined following RTDs departure from Doctor Who as he was still involved in the SJA as Steven Moffat took over Running DW from 2010 (RTD wrote SJA’s Series 4 story ‘Death of the Doctor’ which featured Matt Smith’s Doctor alongside Sarah Jane and Jo Grant).
      I think what led to its decline was the fact that Liz Sladen had passes away and it would have been an impossible task to consider a replacement. Still it has the nostalgic element and Torchwood went downhill on TV as the last season (Miracle Day) tried to Americanize the show to much (Ironically one thing alot of people I know from America hated about MD)

    • the Ergon

      March 25th, 2022 - 6:51pm

      No MIKK89, I was referring to The Sarah Jane Adventures DVD/Blu-Ray Range. The fact some fans lose interest in a certain Era/format and move onto whats next. Sorry for not Clarifying.

      I know people have had Issues 212 and 213 and I,ve seen the images and i ordered as soon as they went up but youd have thought with preorders going in at relatively the same time they could order enough and despatch together unless of course they are only allocated a certain amount at a time.So with so many orders going in, theres a mass surge and then some customers feel left behind. Its the luck of the draw who gets them first.

I have noticed pictures of this release, but the version for this magazine’s cover has now changed. The original cover version for pre-production was an image taken from the BBC Radio Times cover for that year’s Christmas Special of Nick Frost.

It just means you will have to manually look at your post to see if there are any replies, it was the only way to keep all parties happy.
