  1. Met him before too so not for me this time but what a great guy. Getting a fist bump from Lando himself was just awesome. Also about as close to my Harrison Ford guess as you could get
  2. No but believe me if I were to suggest calling them that from now on she’d probably be delighted
  3. Met him at Glasgow a couple of months ago. Great guest. Very chatty. Put some cool quotes on my girlfriends funko pops when signing them.

    I’m on holiday this week and totally bored so I’m getting in ahead of you Just watched The Pirate Planet. I love this story. Classic Douglas Adams. Some great concepts, a ship that covers an entire planets and strips it of all resources. Pure Adams that. Some say Bruce Purchase is OTT but I love it. See also his performance in Blake’s 7. The story keeps up across all 4 episodes and the KTT elements are done well. Mary Tamm continues to shine. 8/10.

    I wish I'd got my pic on the Sunday. I actually prefer his hair like that. His shoot was very early and he got caught in the heavy rain that morning I suppose.

    I totally agree about Invasion of Time. IMO it is hugely overrated (as a lot of the Tom Baker so called classics are, largely due to it being Tom Baker). It’s enjoyable enough and interesting in that they realised that they could use other locations to show the rest of the TARDIS interior at last (it only took them 15 years), but generally not too exciting. Never been a huge Sontaran fan so that doesn’t help me either. Key to Time is a great idea. Largely unpopular at the time having an entire TV series linked like that. Ahead of its time really. I love Ribos Operation. Ian Cuthbertson is superb (Scottish Biss from me again here).

    I prefer the first Kevin Feige. The second is overrated IMO

    Underworld is not quite that bad IMO and it really needs putting into context. Often people making TV shows complain about having “no money”. Well this almost literally had no money. The budget ran out due to the insane rate of inflation at the time. The economy was on its knees and we were in the midst of the 3 day week. This show was made with the lowest budget of any Dr Who story (relatively speaking) by some considerable distance. They couldn’t even afford sets. That’s why the story is entirely CSO. They are using the models the designers made to plan the sets. I think there are some performances worthy of note especially Alan Lake. I think if you keep that in mind while watching it it helps. I always think classic Who needs the context of what was happening when it was made be it real life politics or in the later years, internal politics between the show makers. Also Louise Jameson’s performance was off as this was the peak time of Tom Baker treating her like absolute s**t. He seriously regrets this now and admits his behavior towards her was abominable. It becomes very bad when watched in one go. It really does need to be split up into episodes and watched preferably with a few days in between them. I’d go 3/10 purely for effort.

    Autographs aquired in 2018

    The legendary Nichelle Nicols. For posterity’s sake this is the very first autograph that she signed at the entire convention. I was also delighted that the “limited edition” print was still available to match the other cast members that I got signatures from in 2016. I was so lucky that despite all that interest at that last con and all the other cons since the trader was still only up to 711/995 prints. Phew! Imagine that! So lucky. Only the bottom two here. Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew And most of these were obtained in 2016 despite the fact that every signatory was present at this con. Only Rene Auberjonois, Michael Dorn and Andrew Robinson were added in 2018.

    Talons is brilliant. I don’t agree that it drags a bit. I enjoy it immensely and often sit down to watch it on a Sunday afternoon in one sitting. I simply do not understand this modern thing of judging shows from the past by today’s standards. It’s just how things were then. Instead of moaning about it and saying it’s terrible people should hold it up and use it to show that we have actually progressed as a society. I was watching an episode of Starsky and Hutch yesterday in which David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser go undercover on “Voodoo Island” and they actually use black-face at one point. Makes me cringe now but as a kid in the 70’s it was nothing. jago and Litefoot have their beginnings in this story and it always amazes me that they don’t actually meet until the last episode given all the BF stuff they now have. If Showmasters ever get him back at a show I’d advise meeting Deep Roy (Mr Sin) as his stories are excellent about this adventure. Fang Rock. Another 10/10 for me. Only story where everyone dies except the Doctor and Leela. I also love the idea of the flash changing Leela’s eye colour which was done so Louise `Jameson no longer needed to wear the brown contact lenses which had constantly bothered her throughout all the filming of the earlier stories. They could have just changed them and not explained it but I thought that was pretty clever.

    A great and always overlooked actor Russell Hunter was. The only thing I don’t like about this story is Brian Crouchers performance. It feels like he couldn’t be bothered. One of the best Who stories and the way the Doctor taught Leela about how the TARDIS is bigger on the inside was great as finally tiny little me could understand it. The best Robots ever in science fiction too. I reckon they could be brought back to the new series without any changes and still work tremendously.

    Films watched in 2018

    Last night I saw the remastered 4K of Some Like It Hot. Seen it many, many times but this was the first time on the big screen. I was surprised how well it held up given the subject matter, the only issue being that the conclusion Curtis and Lemmon’s characters come to is that you have a terrible time being a woman what with all the sexual harassment they experience (or men showing their appreciation towards woman as it would have been seen in 1959) but instead of sympathising and changing the way they treat women they just want to NOT be woman anymore. Still a damned funny film and even though he was Oscar nominated I think Lemmon gets overlooked by the other 2 stars especially with all the tales of 50+ takes getting Marylin to say 1 line correctly.
