A TV drama that puts gay characters centre-stage is still a novelty

"What was striking about the recent film The Imitation Game wasn't just the incredible story of Alan Turing, the man who helped the Allies win the Second World War by cracking Germany's Enigma code, only to find himself chemically castrated for being gay. It was the epilogue that informed us that the 1885 Criminal Law Amendment Act, criminalising homosexual activity, led to 49,000 gay men being convicted of gross indecency in the UK. If you subtract Turing and Oscar Wilde from that total, that’s 48,998 stories that still haven't been told." Why is television still ignoring gay lives? – Matt Cain for The Independent. [more inside]

Giving up on Doctor Who

I gave up mainly because I’d got tired of watching talented actors reduced to eye candy and acting out the fantasies of overgrown adolescents who had somehow finagled their way into writing scripts. Where they were writing scripts that looked like old-time Doctor Who, without necssarily understanding why old-time Doctor Who worked and more importantly why it didn’t.
Maureen K. Speller: I’m giving up on Doctor Who again. This time it may be final.

Doctor, Doctor

In the early 2000s four people in the UK answered their phones to hear the unmistakable voice of Doctor Who, specifically the Fourth Doctor, asking for their help with an urgent problem. Only one thing linked these four individuals: they were all actors who had played Doctor Who. Peter Davison (the Fifth Doctor); Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor); Sylvester McCoy (the Seventh Doctor); and gloriously, Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor. [more inside]

Watch them all, since you'll never afford the pedals

From the Electro-Harmonix Effectology series, in which the amazingly well crafted pro grade guitar pedals of Electro-Harmonix are used to ends that blur the line between guitar and synthesis. The original 1963 theme for Doctor Who recreated from scratch using only guitar and Electro-Harmonix pedals.

No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.

The BBC releases the first image of the Twelfth Doctor’s costume. Peter Capaldi elaborates on the dark blue Crombie coat and black Dr. Marten ensemble: "He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics." Of course, finding the right look for the iconic character (and fashion icon) has never been easy, as the First Doctor's costume designer, Maureen Heneghan Tripp, describes. Capaldi picked out the character's latest wardrobe with the help of Howard Burden, who joined the programme with Series 7 and gave Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor a new outfit. The question is now, will the fashion police be kinder on this newest one than they were on his predecessor's?

The first few were what you'd expect, Halloween statistics (direct link to the long, long image), but later they got into the "evolution" of super hero designs, costumes and logos, from Iron Man's suit (image link), Superman's shield (image link), Wolverine's costume/image (image link), the look and some facts about Doctor Who (image link), and even a character map of interactions in Alice in Wonderland (image link).

The Ninth Doctor

The pre-2005 series had a Doctor who was dressed in vaguely Edwardian clothing, who spoke with an RP accent, who had his stories adapted into books. That’s just the way it was. - Andrew Hickey's  Fifty Stories For Fifty Years, one for every year of Doctor Who, reaches 2004 and  Scream of the Shalka (previously) - arguably the end of the line for "Classic" doctor who. Previous instalments had covered the TV series from start to end, as well as the odd novelisation or movie. Possibly of greatest interest are the years before the new TV series where, TV movie aside, the franchise survived and evolved in strange directions via novels and audio stories. Then, at the outmost reaches of Whodom, there is the Book of the War and the strange world of Faction Paradox, which THERE IS NO FACTION PARADOX, THERE IS NO EVIL RENEGADE, YOU DID NOT READ THIS POST.

Sadly "It's a fake" was found written in felt tip pen when X-Rayed

A long lost Vincent Van Gogh painting collecting dust in a Norwegian attic was recently identified as authentic. Thought to be inauthentic by the original purchaser after being declared fake in the 70's, technological advancements have allowed for closer scrutiny to be paid, allowing it to be fully authenticated.

Plus, looking in the upper left hand corner you can clearly see a familiar blue structure. Finally the rumors of intergalactic influence on the painter can be put to rest.
