General / Pat Mills Doctor Who Strips To Be Adapted For Audio
« on: 14 August, 2018, 07:48:00 PM »
As reported on the Big Finish website at the following link: https://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/more-fourth-and-seventh-doctor


Doctor Who: The Comic Strip Adaptations will be released in March 2019 comprising of:
1. Doctor Who and the Iron Legion adapted by Alan Barnes
2. Doctor Who and the Star Beast adapted by Alan Barnes
In these two adventures, we find the Fourth Doctor travelling with his famed elongated technicolour scarf for company. He’ll encounter the Iron Legion, an army of robotic Roman legionnaires, and in Doctor Who and the Star Beast, the Fourth Doctor encounters one of the deadliest and most adorable villains ever – Beep the Meep!
Nicholas Briggs, director of the Fourth Doctor audio adventures, explains: “These Fourth Doctor comic strip adaptations have a whole different feel to them. It’s like they’re from a parallel universe vision of Doctor Who. Tom Baker spotted it straight away, emailing me the moment he’d read The Iron Legion, commenting that this was ‘a bit DIFFERENT’ – actually typing ‘different’ in capitals! But he rose manfully to the challenge and entered into the spirit of it all wonderfully. And that spirit is that they are, essentially, wackier.
“There’s a feeling of ‘we could do anything because there are no budget restrictions’ in the original comic strips, and our adaptor, Alan Barnes, has captured this perfectly. Crazy characters, extravagant action sequences. And Alistair Lock has done a superb job with his sound design and music.
“The Star Beast has a slightly different feel. The alien monster craziness is contrasted sharply with a dash of kitchen sink drama and a touch of Grange Hill, which predated the TV series exploring more domestic settings. It’s interesting how the brilliant comics writer of these strips, Pat Mills, kind of anticipated this. Alan has a great love for Pat’s work, and he was absolutely the right fit to adapt these beautiful, bonkers adventures of an extra-eccentric Fourth Doctor.”
These two epic stories will be released in March 2019 as a 5-disc CD box set for £23 or on download at £20 from www.bigfinish.com.

At the time, I remember I had much the same reaction to Zaucer of Zilk as you did reading it now. I fully expected to hate it based on that cover image - which was also used to advertise the series in advance - but I ended up loving it.

Rob Williams Has Completed 'Judge Dredd' Pilot Script

Well, more good news for 2000AD fans. A Rogue Trooper Film announced and now a possible Mega City-based TV series in the works its zarjaz times for sure.

It's not a 'possible' TV series. This is definitely happening.

I remember Flesh, of this period, being a very rare example of a 2000AD strip which I gave up on. I usually read the prog cover to cover, even strips I don't particularly enjoy, but I found Flesh so bad that I couldn't bring myself to read it every week.

Heh, I loved it!  Just accept that everyone in it is on sanity-blocking drugs (Smileez) and just look at the gloriously drawn dinos munching on cowboys.  That's what it says on the tin after all.

Bearing in mind that I have never, even as a child, had any interest in either dinosaurs or cowboys, I think it's fair to say that I probably wasn't the demographic for Flesh.

...have kick ass action but avoid pitfalls of the movie being about a friuff loner with a big gun.

You're never alone with your bio-chip buddies.  ;)

Ah yeah, you're right. I thought that was just a shot of the underside of the elevator (even though looking at it now it's completely different). Cheers.

No worries. I don't think you were the only one who missed it judging by the previous progs thread.

Another great prog. Killer cover by Chris Weston. Shame the monkey isn't actually on Dredd's back, as the caption claims. The episode itself concludes the story in riotous fashion, bit rushed in places but that just adds to the sense of chaos. Still not quite sure where the elevator was actually headed, though..?

There was a panel showing where the elevator was headed in the first part. On the second page, if I recall correctly.

There almost never is news during a pre-production cycle – only rumours. "We're still working on the show" isn't news.


It's been a long time though.  I'm begininng to wonder if we'll ever see it.

I genuinely did not expect us to have heard anything at this stage. I'm quite sure everything is on track and have no doubts regarding the shows eventual release.

Double post alert:

I might be being a bit thick here, or at least a little forgetful, but did the main character of Skip Tracer change skin colour this week? He seemed to be white this week, whereas I'm sure he's been black for the rest of the story.

I feel like the change of artist has taken all the momentum out of the Durham Red strip. I realise the change was unavoidable due to Ben Wilsher suffering an injury, and I absolutely love Lee Carter's art on the likes of Dredd, Indigo Prime, and Necrophim, but it feels a little vapid here.

I can honestly say that I would never have predicted we would get a Deadworld cover by Brendan McCarthy. You can never have too much McCarthy though.
