More-bius; further reflections on an unforgettable Fourth Doctor adventure

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.

We Review the Latest and Final Series of The Sarah Jane Adventures in Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi 20

Less than a year ago we lost Elisabeth Sladen. At that time, only six of the twelve episodes for the fifth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures were shot. Fortunately, we got to see those six episodes starting last October on the CBBC. In this latest episode of Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi we review this abbreviated and final series. Join Dave, Graeme, and myself as we bid farewall to the series.

Plus other news including Blake's 7 and the new forthcoming Aliens vs. Wizards and more.

The Radio Times has a full interview with Elisabeth Sladen's Daughter Sadie Miller.

Sadie now 26 years old, tells what it was like growing up knowing Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, and what Family life was like.

She goes on to mension that she shall not be watching the 5th Series of Sarah Jane Adventures, Saying “I find it just a bit strange. I can’t really watch it, too soon. But I know I’ll enjoy watching them again at some stage. And if I have children it will mean a lot to watch it with them. Mum would have been a wonderful grandma and I feel sad that she won’t get to experience that.”

The full interview is linked below.

Share Your Stories and Thoughts on Our Elisabeth Sladen Celebration DW Podshock Episode

Sarah Jane Smith

Last April we suffered a huge unexpected loss in the Doctor Who community and beyond. The death of the beloved actress, Elisabeth Sladen. Almost immediately following it, DWP Correspondent-At-Large, Colin (AKA "Abersoch") contacted me about putting together a special episode of Doctor Who: Podshock to celebrate Elisabeth Sladen and the Sarah Jane Smith character.

We had just started our series of live shows reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes from the spring 2011 series while Colin and I were discussing what we could do for a tribute. We couldn't record it then. Now that we are in between the spring block and the late summer/autumn block of new 2011 Doctor Who episodes, it allows us to record this celebration episode.
