Really enjoyed watching Name of the Doctor last night on the BBC.
So we didn’t get to know the name of the Doctor (which I am pleased about) but we did get to see all the original classic Doctors, in addition to David Tennant and Chris Eccleston.
I liked the explanation of the “impossible girl” and her interactions with the other incarnations of the Doctor.
From a technical perspective, I did think that the editing of classic Doctor Who needed a little bit more work. If you have watched Deep Space Nine’s Trouble with Tribbles episode, you know it is possible to combine old footage with new stuff. I wonder though if the problem was that the old Doctor Who footage was shot on video tape (rather than film) and that was reflected when watching this episode in HD. Still nice and clever to get everyone in there.
I won’t reveal much more as I suspect some people are yet to see it (via iPlayer and the like). It was great to see Madam Vastra, Jenny and Strax again.
Now looking forward to the 50th Anniversary episode in November…
Having started to paint the Kingdom of Britannia Eagle Class War Rotor I finished off the base coat of Citadel Boltgun Metal.
The next stage will be a black wash.
One of the issue with playing with supplements is the sheer number you sometimes need to carry. The advantage of an iPad version is that you can have a fair few with you, but only need to carry the iPad.
So I think the idea of a digital Battle Missions: Death Worlds is a good one.
The Emperor’s realm encompasses a million worlds, each with its own potential dangers. Yet certain of these planets are so deadly that they are classified as death worlds. From man-eating flora and fauna to deadly poisonous atmospheres and many stranger things besides, on a death world it’s not just the enemy that your warriors have to worry about!
This Warhammer 40,000 supplement contains information on the deadly planets known as death worlds, as well as full rules for playing games with your collections across these unique battlefields. In addition, a comprehensive modeling and painting guide is included, full of easy to follow tricks and tips and suggestions for creating your own death world terrain.
Another advantage is that unlike a physical book you can leave it “open” at the right page, without needing to bend back the covers.
