I really like the way the TARDIS sounds near the end of the announcement video. Almost like you're hearing it down a phone line or something. Makes sense, considering it's a police phone box.

Only thing I'm not so keen on is the colour scheme. Personally I always think of the Who logo as neutral or cool.

WLARGH

Early on when the taxi logo was being made they did do a blue version.

Did a very quick bit of playing last night-



And this made me chuckle.

Kinda thingies.
Not really got much in the way of facts and reasons for this one but I thought I'd explain the Nyssa situation. Basically the story was written before it was decided to have her stay on as a companion and it was thought that rewriting it was too much work. Nyssa herself was only originally suppose to be a guest character but was invited on after impressing the team. This left the show with 3 companions for the first time since the 60's.
Kinda combines symbols and ideas from Buddhism and Christianity as well incorporating elements of analytical psychology. As well as this it explores the concept of colonialism and perhaps rather specifically colonisation of Australia.
Production difficulties on set meant the planned effects work for the climax had to be changed very late on. Forcing the conclusion to the story to feature the unconvincing realisation of the Mara. When released on DVD this was given a rather spiffing CGI update-

This was the first story under new script editor Eric Saward.
I know this was a bit of a weird one and hope you enjoyed it. I can see why some might not but there really is a hell of a lot going on in it.

Good to see you all enjoying the club :D :D :D

:?

Anyways. The Visitation.

Yep. The Sonic died. And that was the last time it appeared during the shows original run. The Terileptils have never appeared since but despite this have been name dropped a few time. They took part in the capture of the Doctor at Stonehenge and the Siege of Trenzalore. The mask for them is the first time animatronics were used on the show.

On the final day of this year’s Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles, fifteen women stepped on to the main stage for a monster of a panel titled “Gallifrey Waits No More.” Actors Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, Camille Coduri, Jessica Martin, Chase Masterson, Wendy Padbury, Jemma Redgrave, and Dee Sadler; writers Jenny Colgan, Sarah Dollard, and Rona Munro; script executive Lindsey Alford, costume designer Hayley Nebauer, and director Rachel Talalay joined writer and podcaster Deborah Stanish for a discussion about the changing landscape for women in the entertainment industry.

The room came to an absolute standstill when Wendy Padbury took the microphone. She had never told anyone this story before. When she was 16 or 17 years old, she was asked to sing for an American producer for an audition. She was taken to a soundproof performance room. The producer played the piano while she sang her prepared piece. When she was done, he asked her to come around to the other side of the piano. He was masturbating. She immediately turned to leave the room, but he had locked the door. Thankfully, he unlocked the door when she asked him to do so, and she fled.

You could see the shock, anger, and devastation on each of the panelists’ faces. Over 1,550 people were packed into the room at this point, and every single person was transfixed by what was unfolding on stage. The silence was only broken by the sound of a few quiet sobs as people in the audience wept.
