Cosplay Update!

Since I guess this isn't really 'The Road to Comic-Con' anymore, I guess this will do as a title. But, just because the con is off, doesn't mean we aren't going to finish what we started! So let's have a look at our progress (including the first fully finished piece!). Image heavy post ahead.

Who’s The New Doctor

So, the BBC have announced who the new lead in the acclaimed, long running sci-fi show Doctor Who is going to be. Of course, they did it in the worst way possible, only announcing they would make the announcement two days ago and then tying it to the mens Wimbledon final which finished much faster than expected and then only showed a minute long trailer rather than a full blown announcement, so thanks BBC. But anyway, the new Doctor has been announced and I'm going to do the whole below the jump thing in case people don't want spoilers.

May The 40th Be With You

In case anyone wasn't aware, today is the 40th anniversary of the release of the first film in the biggest science fiction film series of all time, one of the biggest film series of all time period. One this day in 1977, Star Wars (later dubbed Episode IV: A New Hope) had its theatrical release in US cinemas. It's hard to overstate the importance of this film, the fact that the franchise is still making billions at the box office with new movies even 40 years after the first film was released says more than any retrospective or analysis ever could.

So Happy Birthday Star Wars. I made you cake, but an Ewok ate it.

The Christmas List: Ranking The Doctor Who Christmas Specials From Worst To Best

So, since 2005, each year the BBC has produced a special Christmas edition of the longest running science-fiction television series. Usually full of snow that isn't snow, Christmas themed enemies such as snowmen and robot Santa's, they are (as with the show its self) usually of very high quality and worth watching. But which episodes are must see and which should you only watch if you are a show completionist? Well, this week I'm going to rank all 12 Christmas episodes from my least favourite to my favourite.

Warning: Opinions below. You have been warned.
