For a long time I thought Warren Ellis was about the only british creator who didn't work for HoT,

Other British creators of note; Kieron Gillen and Paul Jenkins.

2 episodes of new series Spector which, according to Matt Smith in the latest Thrillcast, will be published next Summer along with 2 undrawn scripts.


As in the final two episodes will be published in script form?
Any consideration to allowing another artist to finish it (maybe Colin MacNeil w/ Hector Ezquerra inking)?

So glad that they're going to see the light of day.

I think he had a point, given how overlit the studios were at the time.

Was this not simply a by-product of the way many studio scenes were shot…?

Rather than multiple takes for wide, close-up and reaction, they would simply stick three or more cameras on set and shoot once, with one camera taking in the wide, another for Doctor close-ups, a third for Companion #1, and so on. Of necessity, this meant the lighting had to be as flat and bland as possible to work with multiple cameras shooting simultaneously from different angles.

Warren Ellis only did one story for the Megazine (vol.1,No.7,1991) "Strange cases Feed Me" with Sean Philips
For a long time I thought Warren Ellis was about the only british creator who didn't work for HoT, only scraping in with an honourable mention with the Churchyard reprint, before Edwina's case was pointed out.

I remember HATING the Tom Baker 'victorian' control room at the time because it just wasn't sci-fi enough and didn't have the up-and-downy thing, I just thought it was silly. The Tardis is obviously capable of almost limitless changes, but in the past only changed in small ways - maybe it's some kind of Time War PTSD that made the Doctor start going for these underlit cavernous monstrosities rather than the former simple functional style


It's not the doctor changing the interior - it's the TARDIS herself.

IDW wasting no time releasing this mini, she lands next Wednesday.
Have to admit, I like this series-of-mini-series approach.
Easy to jump on / off, and a chance to try out new creative teams on old Joe.

Shame they don't seem to be as good as putting out decent ongoing series...

Peter Davison has said he would have preferred a more underlit console room after briefly having one in "Enlightenment", pointing out it creates more atmosphere than a stark, bright room. I think he had a point, given how overlit the studios were at the time.
However, having seen a return of a white console room in Capaldi's run, it does still pull on the fond nostalgia strings and the lighting was much improved than how it was in the 1980s. Is it as visually interesting to modern audiences, though? We old-school fans make up just a part of the audience....
