A Decade Of The New Doctor

Posted on Updated on

I have not ignored the celebrations of the ten years since Dr. Who returned to television.

There have been some outstanding videos posted in tribute to this and it has been beautiful being reminded of the journey from Eccleston and Piper to Capaldi and Coleman.

This is just one of those superb videos – the colour effect is excellent and the flows from one scene to the other is masterful. Enjoy.

Feel Like Making Love – D’Angelo

Posted on Updated on

As I understand it, this track was first rendered by the soft voice of Roberta Flack.

When someone sent me to this┬ácover, though, I was duly blown away with what the man, D’Angelo has done with it. This is his track as far as I’m concerned. What we get with the horn section and the vocal arrangements is simply superb. Enjoy.

“Do I Have The Right” – Excellent Moments in Dr. Who

Posted on Updated on

I was told about the epic part of the Genesis of the Daleks story, but I thought it was over-hyped. Until I watched it.

It’s always good to come across something that meets the expectations given from others raving about it. It helps that you have the best fit for the role pulling off an aspect of his character requiring a degree of angst and conflict rather than the jovial approach for which he was known.

It’s really clever slipping in this piece of philosophy and thought in a programme watched by children as well as adults. Good writing and well portrayed.

HISHE – Super Cafe: Versus

Posted on Updated on

The news of a DC film featuring both Superman and Batman has been hot news for a while now, but this take on it from the brilliant people at HISHE still has me rolling with laughter!

Honest Trailers – The Spider-Man Trilogy

Posted on Updated on

I recently watched Amazing Spider-Man 2, so it was interesting coming across this spoof take on how to best describe the trilogy of the original Spider-Man series. It’s funny work. (Though for the benefit of the exercise, I prefer that series to the rebooted one.)

Fallin’ – Al Jarreau

Posted on Updated on

There is no doubt one of the most talented male vocalists of the last 50 years is Al Jarreau

What he applies to any song can make a definitive sound that evokes emotion from the depth of the being, whether it’s of exhilarating joy, or sombre reflection. He’s a masterful singer, who I still believe is underrated!

A song like this is typical of what the man puts together to leave an audio imprint for you to ponder. Enjoy.

The Top Regenerations

Posted on Updated on

It’s that time between series of Doctor Who when you’re obliged to do something useful with your time and not get bogged down by the wait.

Surprising as it is considering it’s not all that long since the last regeneration, I haven’t written anything about my favourite regenerations. .
