Only 'Doctor Who' Gets A Movie Poster For Each Episode

Beautiful episode posters designed by Stuart Manning for Radio Times.

I am still on the fence about this new season of Doctor Who. I love Jenna but she can be AWFULLY earnest and Capaldi still looks and acts like my nutty Uncle. This last episode, Listen, felt like Neil Gaiman wrote it. Then someone else got a hold of it and over-wrote it. I liked some things but thought I should have enjoyed it more than I did. I found it a chore to get through.

Have I lost my Doctor Who mojo? I just don't get it anymore like I didn't get it as a child. It was shown on Canadian TV (Tom Baker version) for most of my life. I didn't ever give it a chance to start and get me hooked. It was a show that would get me off the couch to turn the channel like we had to do back in the day. I have also mentioned how it would make me fall asleep on Sunday nights and miss Star Trek on PBS that followed it. It was my personal television nightmare.

Fast forward to 2005, a hot summer evening and the new Doctor Who and my first look at Rose Tyler. I was prepared to believe everything just to watch her every week. I learned and loved as I went along. I navigated the new Doctors and their random companions for years.

I don't know what happened this year. It's too much work to watch Doctor Who. It's making me think too much. Yeh, I shouldn't be thinking this while watching the good Doctor. Right?

What do you think of this season so far?

Get The Torches, Boys

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters. By Theo Jansen Strandbeest.

Okay, people. You have seen them move. Time to back up now. Let us get on with our holy business of cleansing this evil with fire. Only the devil could have build such a creature.

Tuxedo Mask As A Girl??

FINALLY, the concept works for me.

There Must Always Be A Cave Of Cool

Rabot Tourist Cabin, Okstindan, Norway

The Rabot Tourist Cabin is one of many DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) lodging facilities throughout Norway. It is located at 1200 meters above sea level, close to the glacier at Okstindan in northern Norway. The site is spectacular and the mountains and glaciers are in close proximity. The weather can be extremely harsh and the structure is constructed for heavy winds and storm.
