That's a nice teaser - good to hear the Krypton theme from the original film as well.

I really want to see that Richard Donner version of Superman II happen as well, it's rumoured that he's working on a special edition DVD of what it would have been before he got booted off the film and replaced with Richard Lester.

Not sure if there's been any concrete information on that recently, but it would be great to see.

It doesn't do much for me - I quite liked the Dennis Waterman sketches, although giant props are an easy laugh.

The funniest sketch IMHO was one with Matt Lucas dressed up as Mr T at the gym, oblivious to who he resembled.

I just wish they'd ease up on the music in the new DW, it seems to be permanently turned up to 11.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Horton hears a Who - both directed by Chuck Jones (who directed a ton of Warner Bros cartoons)

No idea about the stop-motion 80's film though, it doesn't ring any bells.

Not too keen on the feet, but it could be worse. To be honest I quite liked the general look of the Earthshock Cybermen.

The big test will be how it looks when it's moving...

What would have been nice if they'd had the budget is to have used effects to get some holes in it to get away from the man in suit.

Hard Time on Planet Earth?

Martin Kove I think played the main guy.

Maybe they should have a Panini-style Name and Shame Sticker book.

When the police asked for this extension after detaining an 80 year-old under the Terrorism Act it felt like a drunk driver asking for a Lamborghini.

I thought they might do this, but I dismissed it as low even for them.

Looks like I was wrong.

I thought The Pit had some of the most variable Dredd art.

I just wish Carlos had been able to do the whole lot.

Riot Foam!

Stumm Gas!

I think cruise ships should carry 30ft robot sharks that they can deploy.

I'd imagine that Guthrie would have been prime suspect in any blockages. He just looks like that sort of guy.

Yeah, sorry - some TFTs have component inputs as well (Dell for example) which would be a doddle to connect, but the Apple ones are pretty minimalist when it comes to video inputs it seems.

does the display have component inputs? (They are 3 phono inputs, one red, one green, one blue)

If you've got one of these then you might be able to use a component lead to connect the two.


Only seems to list DVI however, which makes it trickier. You can buy a component lead, then buy a component to VGA adapter, but they are about ?40, and then convert that to DVI. I think that's the only way it could be done, sadly.



DVI to VGA adaptors usually come with most LCD monitors. A DVI socket can carry both analogue and digital signals, so it should be able to carry the analogue VGA signals through an adaptor into the monitor.

The main problem is there is no guarantee that it would work, it depends whether the apple display can handle what the box is converting to.

Sorry it's so complicated, but that's technology for you...
