"Dr. Who: Talons of Weng-Chiang"
« on: 24 January, 2005, 12:23:40 am »
Hi there!

Can any of you "Doctor Who" fans out there suggest any websites with pictures of Weng-Chiang from that story?  Does he really look as scary as I always remembered him?

Thanks in advance...
john

If you mean the guy in the mask - whose face isn't seen until Leela rips his mask off at the end - try the link below. But you might be referring to the dwarf killer Mr Sin.

The site
http://shillpages.com/dw/dwia.htm

has more doctor who images than you can shake a zarbi at.

It's still the best Tom Baker story, IMHO, even if the giant rat specialeffects are among the worst ever.

Thanks - but the link won't let me access individual images and I don't have time to trawl through the entire site.  I spent an hour looking on the web myself and there are plenty pics of Mr Sin but I can't find any of Weng-Chiang...

Surely not a hopeless task?  Anyone?

Cheers!

The bloke who played Mr.Sin plays an Ommpa-Lumpa in the new Charlie & The Chocolate Factory remake.

The theatre featured in Talons ... is the Royal Theatre in Northampton, where I did a brief stint of work experience back in the day.

Can't have been nice for the people with costumes during filming as the auditorium does get UNBELIEVABLY hot during performances.

Despite the Royal being of the finest Victorian theatres in the country, they nonetheless decided to plonk the ugly 'bus station' that is the Derngate Theatre right next door ...

+++ implementing rigid format protocols +++ meander mode engaged +++

Deep Roy always had those pocket-assassin gigs sewn up. Never forgotten that nasty blowpipe backfire in The New Avengers.

He's in everything that requires an asian dwarf stuntman, as he's pretty much the only asian dwarf stuntman in the business...

He's Droopy McCool in the Return of the Jedi, too.
The wages of sin are death, but the hours are good and the perks are fantastic.

Was he really? There's a thing. Remember being surprised to see him, much older but obviously not much wiser bless him, crawling out of some fat guy's stomach in The X Files just a few years ago.

Genre-dwarf, we salute you.
