Ghosts, haunted houses and creepy, whispering winds. Everything you’d want in a horror movie.
“Ghosts are real. That much I know.” You said it sister.

From ampersands to The Apprentice, from dinner ladies to Dirty Den, here's a selection of nerdy in-jokes from Doctor Who series 2...
Last month we took a look at Doctor Who Series One as it celebrated its 10th Anniversary. Specifically, we delved deep into the murky world of in-jokes and sweet nerdy references.
Let’s take another trip back in time and have a look at the more notable and interesting references and in-jokes from Doctor Who Series Two, starring David Tennant and Billie Piper, where the credit of “Doctor Who” had been changed back to “The Doctor”. Pfft, party poopers.
Old-skool fans would have been forgiven for being excited at the prospect, given that “New Earth” was a planet mentioned in the 1974 classic Invasion Of The Dinosaurs (though it didn’t actually exist in that story, it was a fake world). But all fans could get excited at »
Back in the mid-eighties an actor who played "Third Assistant" in a Doctor Who story called The Savages (1966) and the director of another Doctor Who adventure, The Underwater Menace (1967), came together to create one of the BBC’s most successful television shows.

Yeeeeee-haw! Another week with a bunch to cover.
So this week, I happened across a YouTube video outlining the restoration process of something called Star Wars: The Despecialized Edition Remastered v2.5. For those of you who are already on the restoration bandwagon, this isn’t big news, but for those people who may not know: Fans have basically made a Blu Ray quality version of the original trilogy as it was first released.
They used several officially released scans of the original negative as well as going above and beyond. They found an original 16mm print for the Mos Eisley entrance and scanned that in themselves, they re-created matte paintings from on-set photography, they enhanced sand dunes with hi-rez stills...it’s staggering.
After checking this out, I’m afraid I’m going to start collecting these alternate cuts - each with it’s own unique take. It’s »
