JReviews: Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 1- Deep Breath

Guess who’s back!!!!!

And it’s not just them. It seems that you guys can’t survive a week without me. I go away on holiday for 7 days and when I return the forum has completely gone kaput. Guess that means I’m not to go away again ;)

Anyway, on to the real business, because, as I’m sure most of you are aware, the new series of Doctor Who started on Saturday, whilst I was unable to watch it admittedly, so I have only just seen it, which is why this review is up today, rather than on Sunday. But it would appear I am rambling, lets just get onto the review.

See ya below the jump.

Character Design Contest ♯88- Sports TGT

Ok guys, for this weeks contest, I want you to create something sporty for me. You can do any sport you want, Baseball, Golf, Football/ Soccer, Track Sprinting, I’m not all that fussy. But, you don’t have to make it just normal. Consider this a two great tastes contest if you will. I want to see Superhero Sportsmen, Sci-Fi sportsmen, hell even a vampire with a baseball bat if you want. Hopefully, this will get your creative juices flowing.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Character Design Contest ♯87- Time Travel

So, this’ll be a fun one. I want you guys to create a time travelling character for me this week, in honour of the return of Doctor Who this coming Saturday. It doesn’t matter how they travel through time (provided obviously that it isn’t by TARDIS, because that’s copyrighted) or, if you feel so inclined as to put them in a scene, where they end up, I just want to see some cool time travellers.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time).

Character Design Contest ♯86 (Western Zodiac) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯85 (National Heroes) Winner

Well, this hasn’t happened in a while. The poll was close all week between the top two, but as it turns out it couldn’t have ended closer. Yup, this week was a draw between Anarchangel‘s Bengal and The Nate‘s Quetzal. I’ll leave it up to dblade to decide what to do about the prize, but well done to both of you.

Character Design Contest ♯86- Western Zodiac

Now, back when Jeff ran the CDCs, he did a series of challenges based around the western zodiac. I seem to recall them being quite popular, so lets have another go at them shall we, because I’m sure y’all have improved on heromachine since then. The idea is simple, create a character or a representation of any of the 12 signs of the zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces).

This week, obviously due to the fixed number of zodiac signs, there is a limit of 12 entries (that’s one entry per sign per person) and, as usual, the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
