I always knew it was about focussing. What surprises me is more people in the B+W era didn't do something similar. Some played with slightly thicker black lines, but Ezquerra's had real dynamism to them.

Lee Stringer commented on this on Twitter. Noted it’s not a new idea for the TARDIS – just something we’ve not seen in the reboot.

BPP: agreed. I liked that last series a lot. It was like they realised they were zooming towards everyone's conclusion and wanted to hit it out of the park. Well, apart from Murray Gold, who still did his best to make sure no-one could hear the dialogue, and whoever script edited that farewell speech that went on for approx. three years.

It's still available, Colin. It still says 'Add to basket'. Plus if you don't buy it, Max is going to hurl you into a nightmare dimension.

So far I've struggled to get to the end of each episode.   Feels nothing like Dr Who and Jodie's like an irritating comedy act though she's not funny.
She comes across much like Smith and Tennant did, to my mind. As for feeling nothing like Doctor Who and being irritating, she didn’t burst into the room on the back of a tank, wearing shades, and playing guitar, like a deranged mash-up of Malcolm Tucker and Poochie.

Still, here’s an idea for you: why not stop watching? You obviously made up your mind long ago and now want to confirm those opinions. You’re ideologically opposes to the show in its current form. So just avoid it.

Well, if people can live with spaceships going PEW PEW PEW in almost every sci-fi flick and show, I can suspend disbelief for some sci-fi wobbliness in Doctor Who.

Their stock levels are all over the shop. One minute, the issues are out of stock, and then they're not. When 25, 26 and 28 were all showing as OOS on the website, they told me they still had stock. So who knows?

We're going to crash out, unless there's a last-second climbdown by the UK or MPs find a collective spine.

Well, I liked it. Nothing spectacular, but it feels fresh and fun in a way that most of the Moffat era didn't. The new theme tune is respectful to the original, spooky, and weird. The incidental music is subtle and smart, and I no longer need subtitles to watch the show. Visually, it looks pretty great, and I thought the new TARDIS interior looked suitably alien.

The story was a bit clunky at times, as was the dialogue. It was a bit too A-to-B, but it didn't seem any worse than the bulk of other Doctor Who I've seen, which across classic and new eras suffered from similar issues. As for Whittaker, I think she's doing fine. Her voice is… her voice. I think it's fine. As for her height, perhaps we've just got used to extremely tall Doctors, but (and, yes, I did some Googling) it appears the current one is 1cm shorter than Sylvester McCoy and only 6–7cm shorter than McGann, Troughton and Hartnell.

So, yeah, I'm with JamesC block!

Not read mine yet but I’m starting to question the print a bit. Mine looked like it had been repeatedly kicked around the room, due to getting a battering in transit. Not the first time. I wonder if it could be printed at a smaller size or something.

Jim: yep. “Would you like some free publicity in a magazine?” “How much will you pay us?” Erm...

Colin: any reason why you don’t want to buy it now? Do you already have another edition? The HC hasn’t sold out yet: https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels/treasury-of-british-comics/RCA-B0041

One thing I don't get though; how come your cover is blue?
It's black. Colour cast from the light, I assume.

Fair point. I have sold a lot of stuff here in the past, but for some reason I didn’t with this recent set of books.

It's just advertising, isn't it? But then so much of this telly business stuff is smoke and mirrors. Most of the Dragons' Den deals never go anywhere. The 'due diligence' rule puts paid to that. At least Sugar puts his money where his mouth is, but then 250 grand to him is piss-all these days, given that he's a property baron.

rogue69: when it shows up, consider shoving it on eBay. I sold the one I had recently for 25 quid. Saves faffing about with those idiots, and you might get a bit of extra beer money.
