Inspector Gadget 2.0 (My thoughts)
Let me start off with something I always enjoy saying: I F***ING LOVE CARTOONS!!!
I don't care what others say, what my peers say, even what my mother says, I bloody love cartoons. They're that little escape from the dark and gloomy reality we live in and for a short while show us this fantastic world of bizarre fantasy, memorable magic and, above all for cartoons, some side splitting humour. (Of course, these should be taken accordingly or, like me, you'll end up with an accent you never had before and people will keep asking you "Did you come from America?" Trust me, the joke gets old quickly.)
One cartoon I adored in my childhood was a 1980's series called Inspector Gadget. I don't know how I came to find out about it, but I loved it the moment I first saw it. It centers on the titular bumbling police inspector trying to stop the world being taken over by a maniacal terrorist, Dr Claw. As his name suggests, he is stocked to the brim with various gadgets including extendable arms and

W1A Episode 1 Review
"The BBC has announced the appointment of ex-Head of Olympic Deliverance, Ian Fletcher, as its new head of values..."
When a large company is able to take the piss out of itself, you know it can do well.
So can the BBC do it, and do it well? The answer is that they can at least try, but they'll try like pros.
W1A, an injoke as W1A is the postcode of the current BBC HQ, Broadcasting House, follows on from the hugely successful mock-umentary series Twenty Twelve, which as its name suggests, poked fun at the 2012 London Olympic Summer Games and the lead-up to the event. What links the two series together is Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), the man formerly responsible for getting the Games ready, now trying to find out what the BBC is for and what its values are...
What the series is meant to show us is that the BBC is a workplace like any other, and that in any workplace, things can go wrong. But in the media world, when things go wrong, they go wrong big time. From alleged anti-Co

The Blind Banker: Chapter 5
CHAPTER 5: Miss Sawyer and Mister Lukis
The restoration room of the National Antiquities Museum is a place that requires silence. Whilst the staff of the museum were working on restoring the relics of history, the only noises permitted are the soft sounds of soothing music or the gentle whispers of methods and jobs. Other than that, silence is asked from everyone and is given by everyone. Andy felt at home, here in the back room cleaning the curious artifacts which told our history. Well, he felt more at home here, cleaning the exhibits, with a good friend. But for the last few days, his good friend was nowhere to be seen. Hearing the pitter patter of footsteps, he raised his head up from his work and saw the museum director striding towards him.
“I need you to get over to Crispian’s. Two Ming vases, up for auction. Chenghua. Will you appraise them?”
Andy glanced at the brochure and photos given to him, concerning the lot in question. When he looked back up, he wonder

The Blind Banker: Chapter 4
CHAPTER 4: A Death in the Family
There are many things which can spur the officers of Scotland Yard into action. Possible murder is one of them, plus the added fact of Sherlock Holmes beating them to it. Upon hearing this, it is, at least in the eyes of every Scotland Yard officer, their duty to reach the crime scene in a speed faster that necessary. Of course, once there, grim reality kicks back in. The officers surrounded the block of flats as the forensics team scurried around the flat of the now deceased Eddie Van Coon. The sound of flashes and professional-photography cameras filled the bedroom where the fresh cadaver lay on the king-sized bed.
“You think he lost a lot of money?” asked John as Sherlock put on a pair of latex gloves, ready to begin his investigation. “Suicide is pretty common among city boys.”
“We don’t know that it was suicide,” answered Sherlock.
“Come on! His door was locked from the inside. You had to climb down t

DOCTOR WHO DVD REVIEW:
THE AZTECS: SPECIAL EDITION
RELEASED: 11th MARCH 2013
The third of Doctor Who’s Season One historical outings brings us to the vast and beautiful city of Tenochtitlan, and to the height of the Aztec civilisation. Amidst the introduction of the Daleks, the Voords and the Sensorites, this story reminds us that not all terrors are on vast, far-off planets, have three dozen tentacles and speak in a bizarre high pitched voice, but that some are more realistic and human…
This starts off the way most stories would start off for Barbara, found by the local rozzers and expecting to be sold as a slave. Of course, when the rest of the TARDIS crew find her, it’s a completely different story. Due to a piece of jewellery she came across, she is now seen as an incarnation of an Aztec god. A view which is shared by all of the inhabitants. That is until she decides to change the course of history by removing the Aztecs need for sacrifice. Then it is Tlotoxl

CHAPTER 3: Eddie Van Coon
CLICK. CLICK. The sound of a camera shutter, even electronic, is unmistakeable to anyone. Especially Sherlock Holmes. Visual evidence was a vital part of his deducing. The main reason why one of the few things he adored in his life was the invention of the smartphone. Especially the fact that most of them contained digital cameras. The fact that an entire visual library can be held in your pocket was why he utilised them in his work. He held his BlackBerry’s lens in the view of the vandalised painting. Capturing the image, he then captured the image of the scrawling beside the portrait. He took several photos of both artefacts of vandalism, wanting to have a complete view of its style and possible origins. Satisfied with his visual records, he turned away from the painting, and stared into nothingness, turning to his deducing mind, finding out how the vandal entered the office. Then it hit him. He discovered the elephant in the room, based on his own thi

DOCTOR WHO DVD REVIEW:
THE ARK IN SPACE: SPECIAL EDITION
RELEASED: 25th FEBRUARY 2013
“You are holding in your hands a bona fide Doctor Who classic.”
That’s how the info-sleeve intro begins. Quite honestly, it couldn’t be any nearer to the truth. THIS IS AN AMAZING STORY. Everything about it is perfect, well apart from one obvious thing, but it was a BBC budget. What makes it even more amazing is that the fact many fans, including myself, adore this story; and it’s only Tom Baker’s SECOND STORY!!! It’s as if we’ve gone and seen ‘The Daleks’ again. That is how good this story is. And I can proudly say, whilst this wasn’t my first classic story (An Unearthly Child got that ironic pleasure), the last episode was my first Tom Baker episode. That moment, when I was eleven, just flicking till I came to BBC4, I became a bona fide Doctor Who fan…

The Blind Banker: Chapter 2
CHAPTER 2: A Minute’s Difference
The tall, looming, glass covered skyscraper that is consistent of the headquarters of the Shad Sanderson bank shone in the slowly emerging London sunlight. It hardly seemed out of place with Canary Wharf and the London Shard. Most people, even those who witness them on a regular basis in England’s capital, cannot help but be astonished by their impressive heights. But today, Watson wasn’t in the mood for viewing skyscrapers. He needed to get to a bank. Sherlock brought him to a bank, but of course, it wasn’t the sort of thing he imagined. “Yeah, when you said we were going to the bank…”
Sherlock, not listening, was traversing the lengthy escalator to the reception, noting anything he could, particularly the world clocks. New York 07:45, London 12:45, Hong Kong 20:45, some of the most powerful cities in the world separated by a few hours. BLEEP! Sherlock twitched his head to the side upon hearing the quick but s

CHAPTER 1: Revenge of the Self-Checkout
John Watson was a bit of an optimist. He was a loyal army doctor who was invalidated home from the front in Afghanistan after receiving a wound to the shoulder and a psychosomatic limp. Thinking he wanted a rest, he was proved wrong by the intervention of a bizarre man. Sherlock Holmes. A consulting detective, the only one, he helped the London Metropolitan when they proved to be unable to put two and two together. They recently became acquaintances after deducting the identity of the mastermind behind the serial suicides. Now they lived in a flat on Baker Street, with Sherlock looking for work and John wishing to accustom back to modern life. Sadly, this was easier said than done. As a little trip to ASDA proved. Watson decided to do the shopping in the hope that Sherlock wouldn’t sit in an armchair all day and find a job. He got the goods and now to pay for them. Sadly, the conventional method was packed with other Londoners, so John had

THE SUN MAKERS
RELEASED: 1st AUGUST 2011
ROBERT HOLMES!!!!!!!! You immediately know it’s a good story if Bob Holmes has written it. From creating such terrors as The Master, The Autons, The Sontatans, The Krotons and penning the greatest Doctor Who story ever, Robert Holmes and his stories have passed into legend. But here is a nice little gem from Season 15 with Tom Baker, Leela and K-9 landing on the barren and desolate planet of Pluto. Only to find it is not so barren and desolate as they first thought…
And YES, I’M CALLING PLUTO A PLANET. I WAS BROUGHT UP BEING TOLD IT’S A PLANET, PEOPLE IN 1977 THOUGHT IT WAS A PLANET. ERGO, IT’S A PLANET!
The premise of the story is that after Earth’s (and later Mars’) resources are bled dry, ‘The Company’ moves the surplus population to Pluto, where heat and light are supplied to six Metropolises via six artificial suns. But of course the suns have to be fuelled. And f

The Blind Banker: Prolouge
PROLOUGE: Tea
It filled the room. The smell. The sweet, sweet smell than any Englishman could recognise. Tea. One of the few of life’s pleasures you could truly lose yourself in. Despite being a symbol of British culture, it originates from China and India. But the way it is prepared has changed little over the years, despite the invention of the famous bag. The tour groups at the National Antiquities Museum, London were on the verge of dehydration upon smelling the beverage. The little ones were promised a small drink when the attendant was finished her presentation. For Soo Lin Yao, this was her idea of heaven. The Museum’s collection of Ancient Chinese tableware was rapidly falling apart. The solution to this, if the rest of the staff knew it, would have been greatly ironic.
“The great artisans say,” Soo Lin began, “that the more the teapot is used, the more beautiful it becomes.” As she spoke, she sprinkled a pinch of leaves into the minute teapo

DOCTOR WHO DVD REVIEW: THE REIGN OF TERROR
DOCTOR WHO DVD REVIEW:
THE REIGN OF TERROR
RELEASED: 28th JANUARY 2013
The first series of Doctor Who was… NO, NOT THE ONE WITH CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON, the original first series (or season, to differentiate). The first series of Doctor Who was a runaway hit, juggling historical tales with futuristic stories, ranging from 7 part epics to a two-parter in the TARDIS. The series finale was a bit of a debacle as for which story it would be and eventually, they chose this tale, which seems to come from a small nod from the very first episode…
From the first minutes, we are left thinking ‘is this it? Are Ian and Barbara leaving?’ as the TARDIS has seemingly landed in England, 1964. By now, of course, we know that the old bird was very temperamental in her old days and as such we are not just a few hundred miles off, we’re a few hundred years off as well, landing in France at the height of The French Revolution.

Review:Doctor Who More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS
DOCTOR WHO DVD: MORE THAN THIRTY YEARS IN THE TARDIS
REVIEW:
RELEASED: 7TH JANUARY 2013
When Doctor Who’s thirtieth anniversary came around, the show was in a pickle. The show had been cancelled four years earlier, and the epic ‘Dark Dimension’ special had been scrapped. And its replacement, ‘Dimensions in Time’, despite being one of the highest viewed Doctor Who stories, failed to live up to its expectations. But just a few days later, a celebratory documentary, ‘Thirty Years in the TARDIS’, was shown on BBC One and was well received by fans. So then came the problem, how do you build on that? Quite simply, you build on it. A year later, BBC released the documentary on VHS (for information on this format, consult your parents or grandparents), extended with added segments. ‘More than Thirty Years in the TARDIS’ arrived, and became more popular that the original…

Review: Doctor Who - Shada
DOCTOR WHO DVD: SHADA
REVIEW:
RELEASED: 7TH JANUARY 2013
Shada. If you are a mega Doctor Who fan (I'm midway between mega and casual) then you will have heard of Shada. The legendary lost story by Douglas Adams. I myself have heard of it for the past five years, thanks to the wondrous invention of the internet. And over the years, my interest in it piqued more and more. And even over the last year, I found myself mystified by its uniqueness as being the only 'truly' lost story. Over the last five years, I have seen it via webcast, audio drama and more recently the fantastic adaptation by Gareth Roberts. Yet I have been denied a chance to see the actual original footage recorded before the annual strikes. Now, my wish has finally come true…
The main feature of the DVD is the original recorded footage from October-November 1979 with missing links recorded with Tom Baker, originally released in 1992. Which, I have to say, is great. I know it's not the version everyone wanted for many reas

A Study In Pink Chapter Twelve
CHAPTER 12: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson
The sounds of sirens blared over the college as the emergency services gathered. Sherlock was brought out by Donovan. The first kind act from her in a while, thought Sherlock. Now he was sitting alone, on the back step of an ambulance, with a paramedic placing a blanket on him; for the third time. Is there any way, thought Sherlock, tonight can get worse? In a heartbeat, the answer came, as Lestrade strode over to the ambulance. Well, thought Holmes, could be worse.
"Why do I have this blanket?" Sherlock asked, as Lestrade strode over. "They keep putting this blanket on me."
"Yeah," answered Lestrade, "it's for shock."
"I'm not in shock."
"Yeah, but some of the guys want to take photographs."
Of course, thought Sherlock. Probably Donovan and Anderson. The great Sherlock Holmes in shock. Priceless, is probably what they're thinking.
"So, the shooter," Holmes resumed. "No sign?"
"Cleared off before we got here. But a guy like that would have
