The latest Dr Who DVD release is from the early John Pertwee years called "Inferno". The Dr is still fighting his exile on Earth and Liz Shaw is working beside him. A group of scientists are drilling to the centre of the Earth to tap into a new power source. One that will give the world an unlimited source of power. The Doctor fears that things could go disastrously wrong. He is proved correct when he is accidentally transported to a parallel Earth and sees the effects of breaching the Earths crust. His only hope is to get back and stop the drilling.
This is one I hadn't seen before and I very much enjoyed it. I always enjoyed the mirror universe episodes in Star Trek and so I looked forward to this one. Plus I had only ever seen Liz Shaw in Pertwee first Doctor Who story line with the autons. I liked the fact that the Doctor is working with a companion who is also a fellow scientist.
San, I don't blame you for giving up on "The Constant Princess". I wanted to give up on "Wideacre" except that I wanted to see Beatrice get the ending she deserved. It was slow going too as too much time was spent on describing her clothes and how attractive she thought she looked in them. Hitchhikers gd is good though. I read the whole series and enjoyed them all apart from the last two. I thought they were hilarious and loved Marvin. I can't recommend Jpod enough though.
Kim, glad you liked my book reviews. I spend a great deal of time reading which is why I go through so many. I can't help it! I always plan to do other things but my books always call on me. That and the fact that I love nothing more than starting and finishing a book.
Timewarden, I have to confess the only treasure island movie I have seen is the muppets one. Which is also one of my favourite muppet movies. I have read the book though and enjoyed it.
Keep on, Karen!
Lots of hugs!
I do love to read, but I just never find the time. Since I started stitching it consumes all my time. I think my problem is when I get in a good book I can't let it go till it's done. I will read all night if I have too... LOL
You read a lot of books! I've read only 2 this year. Where do you keep them all after you've read them?
If you haven't seen the other two seven-part Liz Shaw stories then you've a real treat to look forward to.
Have you read "Harry Sullivan's War" by Ian Marter? Thought I'd mention it in case you haven't as you said you would've liked more of Harry. Ian Marter also wrote the novelisation of Disney film "Splash" under the pseudonym Ian Don (his middle name).
Have a good rest of the weekend! :)
