I know I talked my head off (get it?) in PODSHOCK #327 about how much I love THE BRAIN OF MORBIUS, but I'm not through yet. If you're already sick of me talking about it, and why wouldn't you be, really? Then move along -- nothing to see here ...
... Still with me? Oh, good.
I mentioned on #327 how much I appreciated the screenwriting touch, the elegant pathos of having Condo's arm sacrificed to Solon's master work ... and of Condo then seeing the arm and recognising it. I realized later that this is only part of a larger virtue of this script. Where BRAIN OF MORBIUS excels, I think, is in putting sympathetic characters in credible danger. And maybe nowhere is this more striking than in the plot element of Sarah Jane's temporary blindness.
A little tidbit we failed to mention in Doctor Who: Podshock 327 reveiwing 'The Brain of Morbius' was the Tribbles of Morbius (or Dr. Solon).
Titan Comics to Publish Multi-Doctor Crossover Comic Event
A news item on Nerdist.com last January is where I first read the news that the Doctor Who comic license was leaving IDW and heading over to Titan. Now, over a year later, we’ve seen new titles for the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors PLUS a Doctor Who book available for the 2015 Free Comic Book Day.
Today is a celebration! Why? Today is the 10th anniversary of Rose, the episode that brought introduced us to Rose Tyler and brought back Doctor Who.
Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler
It had been sixteen years since Doctor Who the airing of a regular episode, and it had been nine years since Sylvester McCoy handed over control of the TARDIS to Paul McGann in the TV movie. On March 26, 2005, something magical happened. The BBC broadcast “Rose” to a UK viewership of 10.81 million. Today, on the episode’s 10th Anniversary, I take a look back on the regeneration of a phenomenon. (Information provided, in part, via Wikipedia.org.)
