Doctor Who graphic designer Matthew Clark helps us dig a little deeper into some of series 10's mysteries...

A few weeks ago, in the viewing notes for Doctor Who series 10's second episode, Smile, I mentioned that the craft used by the colonists was marked ‘Erewhon 190484’ and asked for your theories. Many of you correctly pointed out that Erewhon is the name of a Samuel Butler novel about a dystopian society whose inhabitants live in fear of machines (And not ‘nowhere’ backwards, as I’d rather rashly stated - sorry about that…).

But what of 190484? There were some fascinating suggestions, including a possible reference to Winston Smith’s diary in George Orwell’s 1984, the date of »

More ‘Terrahawks’ coming in May!

24 April 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

From the iconic creator of Thunderbirds, the Third volume of the classic British children’s sci-fi series Terrahawks is to be released on Blu-ray and DVD, courtesy of Network Distributing.

Gerry Anderson, the hugely influential creator of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet, made a spectacular return to puppet animation in the early 1980s with an exciting new series co-created with Christopher Burr. Thrilling yet another generation of children and adults, Terrahawks introduced a new elite force to defend 21st century Earth against a host of alien invaders.

‘Apocalyse Kiss’ DVD Review

14 March 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: D.C. Douglas, Carmela Hayslett, Tom Detrik, Tammy Jean, Tom Atkins, Michael Berryman, Lloyd Kaufman, Steve Blum, Bonnie Loev, Brian Anthony Wilson | Written and Directed by Christian Jude Grillo

I’ll freely admit there was a heavy dose of trepidation going into Apocalypse Kiss. You see I’ve had the “pleasure” of watching one of writer/director Christian Jude Grillo’s films (Deer Crossing aka Wasteland) before and it wasn’t the greatest of experiences… But just like you should never judge a book by its cover I feel you should never judge a filmmaker from just one film, even if that film was a complete shambles. Grillo’s previous effort was a backwoods thriller, a poor mans Texas Chainsaw Massacre if you will but this time out Grillo aims his sights higher, bringing us a dystopian vision of a city in ruin, controlled by corrupt politicians and evil corporations. »
