Everything is free with enough imagination and creativity. I'll leave it at that.

I do have a dilemma though. Do I watch the live broadcast or should I leave my first viewing until people come over for it later...

is it forbidden to just say that Media Hint exists or something?

When you watch the new title sequence remember that the creator of it had this to say: "If it's so obvious, why hasn't it been done before?"

That's the level of intellect we're dealing with here

These days, it's hard to say. I've seen mods on other forums come down on people for mentioning anything outside of "just Google it".

When SEO just isn't enough.


UK goons, Amazon has a two blu-rays for 10 sale, which includes Spearhead from Space, and also also the RSC Hamlet with David Tennant, both found in the TV section. http://www.amazon.co.uk/b/ref=nav_s...node=5160173031

I don't know if there's some sort of referral link in that URL or not sorry.

Also some "volumes" of series 5, but nobody buys them as volumes anyway unless they're cheap in CEX.

It's loving poo poo mate. It's the most boring, cliche loving visuals for a time travel show and up until this point Doctor Who has happily avoided it.

You're not allowed to talk about pirating shows or how to find pirated shows, it's not entirely clear whether VPN/proxy services fall under that category.

well, it does give you access to shows that you aren't technically supposed to see, but on the other hand it amounts to saying that you can find stuff on pirate bay. I'll leave it, maybe a mod will weigh in on it, to satisfy my curiousity.

DoctorWhat posted:

As a result, many of the remaining 8th Doctor stories planned for the Divergent Arc were partially or heavily rewritten, and traces of that arc's themes and style remain in many of the eight remaining stories.

It's kind of a pity that Time Works was moved out of the Divergent Universe. If it hadn't, it would have been on that short list of "actually uses the concept." Was also the last McGann audio I've really enjoyed in my chronological listen-through, sadly. (Haven't gotten to the EDAs yet.)

BUT I've already gotten Six drunkenly accosting Marcel Proust this weekend, so Capaldi and Co. are going to have to work hard to top that.
