Plastic Fantastique – Recycled!

Specially from the Kasterborous archive….in light of the fantastic reaction to the plastic menace of the Auton dummies in Rose, we re-present an old article from October last year, which explores the power and psychology behind the first two invasions by the Nestene Autons… Evil. Vast, clawed, fire breathing, winged beasts. Traditionally the evil that…

Doctor Who? Where? When?

Today is March 26th 2005. Soon the time will be 2:01pm US EST time. That means that it’s 7:01pm in England, parts of anyway.

Never the realm of your average single person, usually made up of sad obsessives or those already married (err… a friend told me so….). The above ad – however…

Those Damned Stairs…

The media circus. The photographs, the interviews, the WONDERFUL billboards. It’s a stunning synchronicity of television, radio and print; Doctor Who is everywhere. Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston make us sit up and watch, each trailer carefully tailored to little boys and girls, or the little boys and girls in each of us adults so…

Preparation L
