  1. I notice The National Theatre are busy promoting their previous-recorded plays, including a 2012 production of Antigone that features Christopher Ecclestone and Jodie Whittaker. The trailer is a bit rubbish, only showing the back of Ecclescake's head, but it's probably the nearest thing we'll get to a 9th and 13th Doctor team-up.
  2. But not the 3DS though! (Unless there's been a breakthrough of which I'm not aware)
  3. A terrifying cover that depicts the silent horror of 4 ghosts surgically joined to make a 4, in honour of their mortal enemy. It's too horrific for WH Smith! I've only had a quick flick through so far, though I like the Amstrad homebrew special. It was an interesting read and a nice change of format to the normal review section. @jdanddiet Can I ask how you disinfected the mag? I just took it out of the bag, used an anti-septic wipe on the cover & back, and placed it in a drawer for 24 hours. Anything else that should be done?
  4. Interesting to see the pre-production work on Star Trek TNG. I'm glad they went with physical models for this series. The CG is impressive for 1987, though would look out of date almost immediately. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjJDrDSUH8I Edit: I'm getting a Youtube message saying this video can't be embedded. I'll try to update this post
  5. It started on Syfy UK a few weeks ago, apparently. Has anyone watched it? The trailers remind me a little of early Farscape and Red Dwarf.
  6. A new podcast approaches! Star Calls reviews Spots RotS tRoS .... Star Wars 9! https://www.thecomputergameshow.com/podcast/star-calls-16-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker/
  7. This is great news! However, I can't help but think that Hasbro have dropped the ball slightly in terms of timing. The transformers franchise has been obsessed with the early war on Cybertron for the past two years. We have a Siege toyline that was announced in mid-2018, went on sale in Oct 2018, and is currently being replaced with the Earthrise series; a IDW New Era storyline that has explored this era for the past year (in a very boring manner) and is likely to move off-world in the next few months; and a Netflix series that will be exploring the same era in the near future. Given the importance of the early Cybertron war, a more coordinated, cross-media approach could have been taken, similar to the Armada relaunch.
  8. I hope there's an Enterprise mini-series/continuation at some point. I doubt it will ever be funded - the show is fairly obscure and the theme tune still inspires hatred, but it would be great to see the establishment of the Federation done properly. The recent broadcast of Star Trek Beyond inspired me to lookup how the USS Franklin fits with the Enterprise timeline on Memory Alpha. It kinda works, though you have to make a few assumptions to make the dates and NX designation tie together.
  9. Various news outlets are reporting the shocking revelation that Dolly Parton was a secret producer on the Buffy TV series. To save you a click, a company she set up was involved in the production, though she doesn't seem to have been directly involved. At best, you could say she had a stake in the series.

    REDGE, surely? I wonder how Practical Caravan is doing? I read a copy once, but found the writing to be all over the place*. *I only posted to make that pun. Sorry!

    Same here. I loved the EDGE specials where they reprinted 'best of' articles from a specific year. I think there were 3 volumes published, though I can't recall the series name. It'd be great to see a GamesTM Retro Volume 11 at some point as well. Future's issuu page has a 11 page sampler of EDGE 345: https://issuu.com/futurepublishing/docs/edg345.issuu
  12. I thought the Axanar fan films had been abandoned a few years ago after breaching Paramount rules, but apparently they managed to reach an agreement and have produced a new episode, due for release in the near future. The Prelude to Axanar fan film is still freely available on Youtube.
  13. A minor typo there. It's Wed 15th April. At 9pm on BBC2. How did the beeb get it? And so quickly? This looks like the type of show that would usually air on an obscure channel late on a Friday night in 5 years time.
