Blue Meanie – a short film

by Warren

I’ve worked in television for years, I write professionally, and I make videos for a living…but despite all that I’ve never made a Doctor Who fan film. Well, after attending the fan filmmaking panels at Gallifrey twice and dispensing advice to other cine-nerds, I figured it was time to put my money where my mouth is. I present to you Blue Meanie, the story of one man’s torture by Type 40. I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re going to Gallifrey, stop by the fan video room at 1:40, watch the movie again and say hello!

The FruityGamer Podcast! – Episode 17

by Warren Frey

Holiday cheer and general merriment abound as the boys cover World of Goo on the iPad, EA’s iOS fire sale, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on the iPhone, the confusing and pointless Playstation app, predictions for 2011, and Doctor Who: Mazes of Time. Neat!

No video this week, due to weak internet capabilities in China. Next week, quite possibly some video.

Have a look!

Doctor Who 1996 TV Movie Coming to DVD in North America

by Steven
As heard in an exclusive interview on the Hoo On Who podcast, 2Entertain Commissioning Editor Dan Hall announced that the 1996 FOX Doctor Who TV Movie will be released in North America before the end of 2011. The long and convoluted history regarding broadcast and distribution rights between the various production companies responsible for the movie have kept it off of North American VHS and DVD shelves since its original broadcast 14 years, so this is welcome, and overdue, news.

Good job, David and Marty at Hoo On Who, for bringing us the announcement! You can visit the Hoo On Who website here, or click to listen to the exclusive announcement in the media player above.

New Doctor Who Nintendo DS and Wii Games

It appears that two new Doctor Who video games, one for the Nintendo DS and one for the Wii, will be released in the UK on October 29 (Play.com lists the release dates as November 17). Not many details are known about the games, produced by Asylum Entertainment, but what we can show you are the covers for each game. Above is the cover for Evacuation Earth (Nintendo DS); below is the one for Return to Earth (Wii).
Exciting, yes? Here’s the links to each game on Amazon.co.uk:

Eurogamer’s loss is your gain

by Warren

I originally wrote this article about the new Doctor Who video game for Eurogamer, but then E3 happened and by the time the annual gaming conference was finished the game had already been out for a while. So as a result, Eurogamer nicely said I could publish the article anywhere I like.

I’m lucky enough to know Phil Ford, the writer of the game and of various Doctor Who episodes (along with being the head writer of the Sarah Jane Adventures) and he was cool with being interviewed for the article, presented in full below. And if you’re arriving from Radio Free Skaro…hello! Thanks for listening ot the podcast and I hope you enjoy my site.

One of the UK’s oldest heroes is entering a whole new world.

Doctor Who returned to the small screen in 2005, hypnotizing a whole new generation of viewers with the adventures of the Doctor and his companions as he once again hurtled through space and time vanquishing his enemies with only a keen wit and his trusty sonic screwdriver.

Though the new show soon spread to other media such as novels, toys and comics, video games were unexplored territory until the BBC announced earlier this year that they would release four “adventure games” featuring Matt Smith, the newest incarnation of the Doctor, and Karen Gillan, who plays Amy Pond, his new companion.

Radio Free Skaro #151 – Killing Time Before The Waters of Mars

by Warren

In what has to be the most overwhelming of all weeks for Doctor Who in all recorded history, the RFS crew slogged mightily through tales of Comic Con, rumours confirmed, others dashed, and in the midst of our recording the release of a new trailer for “The Waters of Mars.” And that was BEFORE we got around commentating on “Planet of the Dead”, making this if not the longest Radio Free Skaro ever than certainly the densest, and not just because of PotD’s plodding, pedestrian poltroonery.

Radio Free Skaro #150 – Sasquatchicentennial

by Warren

An exciting landmark in RFS history, as the Three Who Rule celebrate their Sasquatchicentennial, otherwise known as the 150th episode of their half-crazed (yet still consistently jaunty) blatherings. And what better way to mark the occassion than “The Parting of the Ways,” Eccleston’s final episode as the good Doctor and one of the many highlights of the 2005 return of the series. News, digressions and a visit from one of the Internet’s most pervasive memes round out this most 150-th of episodes.
