  1. “Soon to be murdered Keff McCulloch.” – that made me laugh, welcome back Warren. 🙂

    As for the director of State of Decay (and to paraphrase Camilla), “The direction of Moffat is stale and flat.”

  2. Great show. I really liked this week’s Miniscope…”State of Decay” is one of my absolute favorite Tom Baker stories, so it was nice to hear it discussed at some length.

    I will say, however, that the animation in the preview clip for “Dreamland” is just dreadful. It’s horrible. It was a well-written little scene, though. I hope they decide to redo the whole thing in Flash. They won’t, but still..

  3. I really, really liked The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, but the Doctor as written seemed to be trying to cram as many Tenth Doctor-isms as possible into the second half hour. A baseline to judge him in “Waters of Mars” from, perhaps, given how long he’s been away?

    I’ll second that remark on the Dreamland animation. The CG models’ acting and movement reminds me of the work Mainframe was doing on Reboot fifteen years ago; it was passable then, but today it just looks embarrassing. The more limited style of The Infinite Quest at least had that going for it — STYLE. The CG models actually put me in the mind of weird computer generated marionettes, something about the way their arms move. I’ve seen movie tie-in video games with more convincing CG work. Ugh!
