  1. Just checking everybody is still alive! :)


    I was about 10 versions out of date so I thought I better upgrade :w00t: Glad to see the old place is still going.


    Keep up the good work LUK.




  2. This kind of stuff is the main reason I have stayed away from this board for a while. I hoped things may have changed, seems not. ;)


    If I want political rants I will go to one of the huge amount of boards that are set up for that kind of crap. :/

  3. Didnt see much of Torchwood this time round for a number of reasons, will have to get it when it's released on DVD. Saw the first episode of Dr Who this weekend and wasnt over impressed to be honest. Wasnt a big fan of Donna and can see me getting very fed up by the end of the series. With Martha and Rose making an apearance the Tardis could be getting a little crowded again, it use to be common for the Dr to have 2,3 or even 4 companions but i'm not keen on it. One fit woman is all he needs! :thumbup:

  4. Billie's back!


    Fresh from waving her baps about in The secret diary of a callgirl Billie Piper is to return in series 4!! :thumbsup:



    Rose Tyler returns for Series Four.



    Following a series of unconfirmed reports across the media this morning, we're delighted to officially confirm that Billie Piper will return as Rose Tyler in Series Four of Doctor Who.


    Anything you may read elsewhere about when, how or for how long Rose returns to Doctor Who should be treated as pure speculation at this point.




  5. Hah! It was shit this year! Had a great season last year, scored a shitload of runs and i've been just shit this year! ;) Been too busy coaching the kids to practice so my form was rubbish. Won the league though and got promoted. :thumbsup:


    Glad you are both ok. :drinks:

  6. Alright Blu, yeah no probs with the rugger. We got closer than you bloody convicts anyway!! :D



    How are you mate? Fiery still giving you hell?? I have a new job now as an Ambulance driver and the hours are bloody long so i'm hardly at the keyboard at all these days. <_< Good fun though, most of the time you get paid to sit round and drink tea and read the paper!! :coffee:

  7. They're just going to be used in the 'caption' area of the groupbox on the new 'Ez-Mode Picker' screen.


    Almost like a quote of day type thing.


    I already have the 'blow the bloody doors off' one in my list :)


    You could also use Micheal Caines from Zulu: "Dont point that bloody spear at me!"(Mind you, I think I may have made that one up!! :teehee: )


    Ah right, sounds like it could be fun.


    How about something from Marvin the paranoid android?


    "Why stop now just when i'm hating it?"


    "Incredible... it's even worse than I thought it would be."


    " Freeze? I'm a robot. I'm not a refrigerator."


    "Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they ask me to take you to the bridge. Call that job satisfaction, 'cause I don't."


    Trillian: Marvin... you saved our lives!

    Marvin: I know. Wretched, isn't it?


    And a classic from Arthur Dent:"It must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays." I feel the same you know................

  8. Now are these going to be used as error messages or warnings? If they are then theres no one better than HAL 9000 from 2001, he has some great lines in the context of a computer program:


    "Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye."

    "Everything's running smoothly."

    "I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before."

    "I think you've improved a great deal."

    "Just a moment. Just a moment."

    "It can only be attributable to human error."


    Theres a load of them HERE in audio form.



    And another classic:


    “Good. For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble.” Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid



    Maybe Obi-Wan: "Use the force Luke!"


    "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" is my favourite but how you would find a use for that I dont know!!! :)


    I see no reason why you shouldnt carry on playing, I find it only mildly intresting as I gave up chess a long time ago as i'm crap at it but I would much rather read this than some of the narrow minded political rants that we have had on here. keep playing guys, I want to see the Aussie lose!! :D

  9. More news:

    Who's Hugo Win

    Doctor Who triumphs at the World Science Fiction Convention.



    Doctor Who has scooped its second consecutive Hugo Award - widely considered to be the Oscars of the Science Fiction world - at the 65th World Science Fiction Convention held in Yokohama, Japan over the weekend.


    In the presentation on Saturday 1 September, The Girl in the Fireplace, an episode from series two written by Steven Moffat and directed by Euros Lyn, was named Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.


    This is Moffat's second Hugo, having picked up the same award for The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances in 2006. Steven travelled to Japan's Nippon 2007, the 65th World Science Fiction Convention, to collect the award.


    "Best thing about winning a (second) Hugo, is that it's for Doctor Who," Steven told us. "Cos years ago, when I was a tiny little Doctor Who fan, I bought this American magazine called Starlog. It was all about Star Wars and Star Trek (whatever those are) but the reason I bought it was in a tiny box in the corner it said "Doctor Who"!


    "And I was so excited that this big important American magazine had an article about my favourite show! And it broke my heart. Because in the article it said "In all fairness Doctor Who is unlikely ever to win a Hugo ...


    "Two Hugos, I've got!! Two Hugos for Doctor Who!! And I'd say more, but I'm off to the Starlog offices to dance around and flick v-signs."


    "Steven Moffat broke our hearts and thrilled us in his romantic, witty, terrifying script, The Girl In A Fireplace and I'm delighted the episode has won the prestigious Hugo Award," added Executive Producer and Head of Drama, BBC Wales, Julie Gardner. "It's a great honour for Doctor Who to have won this award for a second year."



    Slitheen For Sarah Jane

    Raxacoricofallapatorians return for spin-off show.



    New CBBC series The Sarah Jane Adventures will feature the return of some familiar Doctor Who enemies when it debuts later this month.


    The Slitheen, a family of scheming monsters first seen in Aliens of London / World War Three are back - and out for revenge.


    Following on from a successful special screened on New Year's Day, the ten-part CBBC series stars Elisabeth Sladen as investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith. She'll be joined by young friends Maria and Luke plus new recruit Clyde.


    "It's great to be back enjoying Sarah Jane with some fantastic new adventures," Sladen revealed to the BBC's in-house Ariel magazine. "There's still so much more to find out about her after all these years."


    Executive Producer Davies added: "This is a wonderful opportunity, to use all our Doctor Who resources here in Cardiff for the making of a brand new drama for CBBC."


    Davies also said he hoped that brand new viewers would be attracted to the 'full-blooded' adventure series.


    Look out for the extensively updated Sarah Jane Adventures website, which will relaunch to coincide with the series.





    I kind of like the thought of Dr Who winning a Hugo award, that ranks it alongside Dune, Ringworld, Stranger in a Strange land and most of Arthur C. Clarke's stuff. Nice! :thumbup:

  10. Doctor Who to return for fifth series in 2010.


    After months of media speculation, the BBC can confirm that the BAFTA award-winning Doctor Who will return for a fifth series in Spring 2010.


    Viewers are in for a treat this Christmas, as a special episode starring David Tennant and Kylie Minogue will be broadcast on BBC One in December 2007.


    Series Four, which went into production in July 2007, will hit UK screens in Spring 2008, followed by a special episode for Christmas 2008.


    In 2009 Doctor Who will return with three specials starring David Tennant, with Head Writer, Russell T Davies.


    The full-length fifth series will transmit in 2010.


    Jane Tranter, Controller, BBC Fiction, says: "Doctor Who is one of the BBC's best loved and most successful dramas. Its journey over the past three series has been one of the most ambitious and exciting that we have had, and I'm delighted to be able to confirm not only three exciting specials for 2009, but a fifth series in 2010. "


    Menna Richards, Controller, BBC Wales, says: "The success of Doctor Who is a fantastic tribute to the dedication and expertise of the production team at BBC Wales who have worked on the project from the outset. This announcement is marvellous news for all involved, and more importantly for the programme's amazing fan base and audience. BBC Wales is looking forward to producing the fifth series."


    Following the critically acclaimed season three finale, the BBC has announced that Catherine Tate is set to return to the TARDIS for the complete 13-week run of series four, reprising her role as Donna from the 2006 Christmas special.


    Freema Agyeman, who won praise for her portrayal of Martha Jones in series three, is also set to return mid series four.




  11. The Doctor and Donna book a date with Agatha Christie.



    Filming is underway for Series Four of Doctor Who, with Catherine Tate reprising her role as Donna, the runaway bride featured in last year's Christmas Special.


    The start of the new series will see Donna tracking down the Time Lord during an alien emergency in modern-day London. The couple are destined to experience a series of wonderful adventures throughout the new series including meeting one of Doctor Who's most popular aliens, The Ood in a brand new episode, Planet of The Ood.


    Catherine Tate said: "I am delighted to be returning to Doctor Who. I had a blast last Christmas and look forward to travelling again through time and space with that nice man from Gallifrey."


    Donna and The Doctor will also be travelling through time for an encounter with the legendary murder mystery novelist, Agatha Christie, played by Jekyll star Fenella Woolgar. Fenella will be joined by The Good Life actress Felicity Kendal, who will star as Lady Clemency Eddison.


    "What a brilliant idea that Agatha Christie and Doctor Who should meet!," noted Matthew Prichard, Agatha Christie's grandson. "Two characters whose contribution to British entertainment is absolutely unrivalled. As far as I know my grandmother, Agatha Christie, never saw Doctor Who, but I am sure she would have been intrigued, excited and above all flattered by all this attention in 2007."


    Doctor Who's executive producer and head writer, Russell T Davies comments: "Visiting Agatha Christie has been on my wish-list for ages now, and for the Doctor, it's a real meeting of minds! Viewers can expect many more ambitious storylines and a whole host of guest stars in 2008."


    Blackadder and Notting Hill Actor Tim McInnerny will also guest star later in the series.


    Freema Agyeman who has played Martha Jones, The Doctor's companion throughout the critically acclaimed third series will return to the show to join The Doctor and Donna mid series.

  12. I like the first one blu, I have a "friend" :whistling: in the military police. When she first joined I asked her if she would come home in her uniform and, just maybe bring her handcuffs too :rolleyes: She just looked at me strangely and said "I have a baton too!" :o



    The second one just serves the annoying little fucker right! I hate those stupid prank shows!

  13. Nice one Jack - didn't know you had grown a beard mate !! :lol:


    Did you see this clip too ?


    and this one !! :D





    Alright mate, hows it going?


    Yeah, I had seen those, Dead Ringers is bloody funny in parts. Some of the Dr Who stuff is pretty good.




    The first episode was transmitted the day after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. There is a myth that the transmission was delayed by ten minutes due to extended news coverage; in fact, it went out just eighty seconds late. However, due to the fact that it was felt that the coverage of the events of the assassination as well as a series of power blackouts across the country may have caused too many viewers to miss this introduction to a new series it was broadcast again on 30 November, just before the broadcast of episode two. This repeat was not broadcast in Northern Ireland. The repeat is to date the only occasion in the series' history that an episode starring William Hartnell has been repeated on the BBC's main channel, BBC One (then simply "BBC Television").




    Somewhere I have a paperback version of the the first story by David Whiteker, it's an odd mix of The Uneartly Child and the Daleks if I remember rightly.
