So, Monday Nov 14th, I went and saw POWER OF THE DALEKS at the Regal Pavilion Stadium 14 & RPX in Port Orange, FL.

I really enjoyed it.  There was a few moments of adjustment to the animation style – the way they moved at times wasn’t the smoothest, but before long the story sucked me in and I didn’t notice or care any more.

Going into the show, I wasn’t 100% sure which story Power of the Daleks was; to be honest, I was thinking it was EVIL OF THE DALEKS – which introduced one of my least favourite (ie, most annoying/useless) companions, Victoria Waterfield.  (I didn’t check to confirm, because I didn’t want to “spoil” myself, as my recollection was obviously not the best.)  So, I was pleasantly surprised to discover it wasn’t, that it was the first story of Patrick Troughton as The Doctor, and had Ben and Polly as the companions (much more palatable than Victoria, believe that.)

Seeing this on the big screen was great fun; there wasn’t a big crowd, sadly, as I was one of maybe twenty, twenty-five tops, in the theatre.  But it was good to do it in the theatre with others.

I imagine they’ll be putting this out on Blu Ray; I certainly hope so.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 18 trips to carry that many people.

I would have been remiss to not have a post on this blog today, the fiftieth anniversary of the first airing of the first episode of the first serial of the First Doctor, AN UNEARTHLY CHILD.

I won’t be seeing the anniversary special, DAY OF THE DOCTOR, until Monday night, in the theatre.  I will be watching AN ADVENTURE IN TIME AND SPACE this weekend, and have plans to revisit AN UNEARTHLY CHILD as well.

I will have a post next week, talking about the 50th special.

And, don’t forget, early next year, some detailed thoughts on the original twenty-six season run…

… but I’ve had the focus of a nutty professor lately.  I totally forgot to schedule today’s post, so it will go up tomorrow at 1pm EDT.

I’m a bad, bad blogger.

..before the hiatus is over (good thing it wasn’t like the hiatus of the tv show – 16 years!) and we’ll be picking with Season Twenty-Three and TRIAL OF A TIME LORD on Tuesday, July 16th.

Hope everyone is having a great Fourth of July.  I’m watching some Doctor Who…

So I mis-queued today’s post.  It’ll post tomorrow now.  Mea culpa.

(Hopefully, The Rani will forgive me.)

Because I’m a moron, I forgot to queue today’s post this morning.  So it’s posting tomorrow.

This week – Tue/Wed/Fri.
