    00:41 (GMT) - 7 Aug 2009

    When filming for the Matt Smith 2010 series of Doctor Who began, we were treated to the first pictures of the Eleventh Doctor in costume and in character, as well as our first look at the new companion and a newly regenerated Tardis exterior. Without mentioning plot spoilers, we discuss the fandom's reaction to these and speculate about what they mean.

    We also look at the surprising news that series 5 will be produced and marketed as 'Series 1'.

    Our guest panellist is Erik, previously heard on our Radio Free Skaro Wednesday Cutaway 'Pilot', who can be found on Twitter as @sjcaustenite.

    Show Notes Rebuttals

    We recorded this episode immediately after releasing episode 1 due to Nat attending a convention. However we discussed:

    @ minutes - Could Torchwood series 4 be filmed and set in America? Based on comments by LiveJournal user the-magician.

    @ minutes - We responded to an interview with io9 where RTD confirmed that any future series would definitely be in the mini series format.

    Creativity Corner

    @ 14 minutes - We look at the first fan art responses to the Eleventh Doctor's costume and discuss the difficulty of creating fan art and caricatures with only still images or publicity photos:

    http://community.livejournal.com/ihasatardis/1893001.html

    Discussion

    We have a plot-spoiler-free but speculation-filled discussion about the first location pictures:

    @ 31 minutes - The Eleventh Doctor's costume

    @ 50 minutes - Amy Pond's name and costume

    @ 58 minutes - The revamped or 'reset' Tardis Exterior

    And then:

    @ 1 hour 8 minutes - We look at the fan reaction to news from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine that the 2010 series will be marketed as 'Series 1'.

    Next Time

    @ 1 hour 13 minutes - Episode 3 will be a Trock special, as this week marks the first anniversary of the 'founding' of the Time Lord Rock genre.

    Trocking Out

    @ 1 hour 14 minutes - We play out with the first self-described trock song, An Awful Lot Of Running by Chameleon Circuit, which is on their self-titled debut album available on CD from DFTBA records and to download from Amazon MP3 and iTunes.

    Thanks to Chameleon Circuit and DFTBA records for kind permission to use this track.

    Star Cops - Why I like it, in 5 minutes or less

    15:20 (GMT) - 1 Aug 2009

    Welcome to the resurrected Staggering Stories Audio Musings.A I’m Adam Purcell, and I’ll be your host for this musing.

    This doesn’t replace the proper Staggering Stories Podcast feed but is instead a VERY irregular (in more ones than one!) outlet for individual members of the Staggering Stories team to vent and generally spew forth…

    This is the first of a group of three musings (actually recycled MP3 comments…) about Herd Nurdles.A Herd Nurdles, do I hear you ask?A Probably not.A It’s a term introduced by the fabulous people over at the Box Room podcast, used to represent Science Fiction that one person really likes but few others do.A It’s the opposite of Nerd Hurdles… seek out Box Room Podcast 29 and onwards if you want to know more.

    Without further ado, here’s my justification for liking the 1987 BBC 2 Sci-Fi/detective series Star Cops – my first Herd Nurdle.

    You don’t know Star Cops?A Where were you in the late 80s?!A BBC 2, 1987.A A science fiction crime drama, devised and mainly written by none other than Chris Boucher, of Doctor Who and Blake’s 7.

    Okay, the production values… leave a little to be desired.A Let’s not even talk about the zero-G acting…A There’s some great model work, though… By I’m drifting.

    It’s basically Hard SF – It’s set in 2027 and there’s no magic tech, it’s all plausible.A There’s no anti-gravity, no faster than light travel, no transporters and NO aliens.A It’s real people policing a realistic Earth orbital stations and lunar colony universe.

    There’s some really great writing, some fantastic dialogue, clever ideas about the sort of crime that near future environment might encourage.A Some great performances too, especially, for my money, by David Calder and Trevor Cooper.

    It’s not for everybody – a lot of people probably won’t even get past the awful theme tune.

    Star Cops is something people seem to either love or hate.A It’s in my top 4 favourite TV series, along with Doctor Who, Babylon 5 and Firefly.A Give it a go – you might just love it!A You probably won’t, most people hate it but you never know… Sadly the DVDs are long since deleted but no doubt it is available via alternative means..!
    I can’t defend that cast photo on Wikipedia, though.A I think they must have just eaten from the BBC canteen or, perhaps, just been fired…

    This week on The Cloister Room, Tom takes a look at Captain Jack Harkness: the background of the character, the major events that have shaken him in Children of Earth, and his thoughts on the character's direction for the future. But that's only one of the four acts in this episode. Tom also discusses the recently unveiled trailers for the upcoming specials and Russell T Davies' attitude on religion in Torchwood: Children of Earth. It's far and away the most jam-packed episode yet, which, Tom admits, is really not saying much, as it's only the second one!

    Not sure if anyone else is aware of the Twitter/James Moran things. Thought youd like to read the item from his blog. the direct link is at the bottom of the page Sunday, July 12, 2009 Stepping back Before I start, this post - and every post on here, and anything I say on Twitter, or anywhere else - is entirely MY opinion. Nothing to do with the people I've worked with, or the BBC, or anyone else. I don't speak for any other writers, I *only* speak for myself, and I will not pass on any messages to anyone. Here's my position: I'm not going get into any more discussions or debates about what happened in Torchwood this week (being vague, in case people come across this and haven't seen it). Not now, not in the future. Why? I started trying to discuss it, but swiftly realised that it was pointless. It simply turns into "No it isn't" / "Yes it is", and there's no way I can win the argument, because in certain people's opinion, I am wrong, and that's the end of it. And it's all just opinion anyway. It would also feel like I was trying to justify the show, and I'm not doing that. I have absolutely no need to. The show is the show. Whether you like it or dislike it, that's up to you. I helped plot the whole storyline, and I stand by every single decision. Yes, including *that* one - I had my hand on the death lever along with everyone else, and was fully involved. I think it's a fantastic, brave, challenging drama, and contains some of the best moments on TV all year. I've received over a thousand messages from viewers talking about the show. The vast majority have been extremely positive. Even though many of them are upset and shocked, they have managed to express that without making it personal. So to you, I'm extremely grateful. I'm glad you liked the show, and love that it made you respond so strongly. I can't reply to everyone, it'd take weeks, so please accept my thanks. But the rest of the messages? Unacceptable. Some have been spewing insults and passive aggressive nonsense. Accusing me of deliberately trying to mislead, lie, and hurt people. Telling me I hate the fans, that I'm laughing at them, that I used them, that I'm slapping people in the face, that I've "killed" the show, that I'm a homophobe, that I want to turn the fanbase away and court new, "cooler" viewers, even that I'm hurting depressed people with dark storylines. Asking me to pass on vitriolic, hateful messages to people I love and respect. Not cool. These are all things that nobody would dare to say to me in person. But on the internet, it's easy for them to fire off these things. Forgetting that at the other end is me, a real person, someone who has been nothing but open and friendly. But I've been a bit too open, a bit too nice, a bit too willing to explain the thought process behind story decisions. And some people are taking advantage of that, or misinterpreting what it means. So here's the deal: I'm a professional writer. That's my job. I write what I write, for whatever the project might be. I have the utmost respect for you, and honestly want you to like my work, but I can't let that affect my story decisions. Everybody wants different things from a story, but this is not a democracy, you do not get to vote. You are free to say what you think of my work, even if you hate it, I honestly don't mind. But the ONLY person I need to please is myself, and the ONLY thing I need to serve is the story. Not you. I will do my work to the very best of my ability, in an attempt to give you the best show, the best movie, the best story, the best entertainment I possibly can. Even if that means that sometimes, I'll do things you won't like. I won't debate it. Either you go along with it, or you don't. None of it is done to hurt you, or to force some agenda down your throat, or anything else. It's all in service of the story. When I started this blog, I wanted to give some insight into the writing process. I've done that. I've answered all the questions, written about the process, done several huge posts trying to pass on what I've learned. The posts are all still there, and will remain there. I've had great fun with it, and given as much as I can, but it's never going to be enough. For a while now, I've let things get too cosy here, indulged myself too much, and if I let it carry on, it will affect my work. The last few days have just confirmed that for me. So I'm going to step back and take a break from it. Things are very busy for the next month or two, and I won't have the time anyway. I'm extremely grateful to everyone who has commented on here, and the blog will probably continue in some form, but limited to anything that isn't about the work - announcements, TV/movie recommendations, etc. I have to concentrate on my writing. And I will not put up with any more abusive messages, or threats, or accusations, or attempted guilt trips. So while I completely understand your pain at some of the events in the series, that does not give you the right to insult me. Talk about the *work*, all you want. But lay off the person behind the work. Because I'm simply trying to tell you good stories. In the end, that is all I can do. James Moran Writer Please feel free to pass this on, I encourage you to do so, to make my position clear to everyone - but you must include the link to the full post here: http://jamesmoran.blogspot.com/2009/07/stepping-back.html Bookmark and Shareinfo to follow
