Feigning normality since 1973
Let me take you on a trip back in time to shortly before the millennium, which is a roundabout way of saying that TSV issue 58 went online yesterday. In the last pre-Y2K issue, there are many lovely shiny things.
Beyond the Sofa is one of my favourite TSV article series, wherein Peter Adamson and Alistair Hughes watch old Doctor Who (in this case Nightmare of Eden) in a similar vein to DWM's Time Team. Also Scott Gray gives us an article on the making of the DWM comic strip Happy Deathday!; there's A Locked Room Mystery, a comic strip featuring the first Doctor and Steven; and a look at the Sherlock Holmes continuity in the Virgin book All-Consuming Fire by Jamas.
There's nothing from me in 58, so instead I'll mention Neil Lambess' column in which he mentions having seen episodes of The Macra Terror and hearing rumours of The Highlanders, raising the possibility of more missing Doctor Who episodes existing in the hands of collectors. Since it's some nine years later and no more complete episodes have been found here, nothing came of it, but the recent discovery of a complete print of Metropolis, missing for the last 80 some years, does give me hope that more missing episodes exist out there.
Here's hoping, anyway.
