When “Spider-Man: Far from Home” by Marvel Studios premiered in cinemas early this July, it signaled the end of “Phase 3” for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film series. Said Phase also concluded the long-running general myth arc that was first established in the first “Avengers” film back in 2012. The over-a-decade-old franchise, which encompasses […]

001That’s right Earthlings/Marslings and any other lifeform picking up this transmission! I’ve been whittering/rambling on for nearly nine years on this blogsite! Some of it makes sense, but sometimes it hasn’t..

ANYWAY, From Saturday, I’ll officially begin the countdown, trying to write something everyday, even if it’s just reblogging other’s posts- It’s the Summer Blogathon where Anything can happen, Tuesday til Monday and then it starts all over again!

I’ll probably hit 900 posts by September. This one is 842-ish, so miles and miles to go before I sleeeeeep!

Better get cracking then hadn’t I?





It’s a new cover for Infinite Whoniverses Series 6, which hasn’t been updated in, like, forever!





“Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me.”


SHATTER ME, performed by Lindsay Stirling and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm is an awesome duet. It’s the song that makes you fall in love with dubstep violins.


At times it feels like such a melancholic track. When you feel like you’re just going through the motions and desperately need an epic change of direction or 180’ turnaround or paradigm shift.


It would also make an awesome theme tune. If I ever get round to making my Star Wars fan fiction film ‘Another Chance’ about the Survivors of Alderaan and Officers aboard the Death Star, then this’ll be it.

I actually found it when I was looking for the Attack on Titan spin off No Regrets about Levi. Someone had made a music video

Levi/Attack on Titan AMV-


Then I used it for the theme of the first Cosplay get together in 2017. While roaming round the Museum and Library, saw a video with Tim Peake aboard the Space Station, so had to include a shot of him- Awesome!

My post on LS Facebook page-




new vids!


busy busy busy at Mercer Central as catching up on three dozen videos for Tigletverse Photography.

Mostly it’s been hiking and events over the last year- Red rocks/Wirral festival of firsts/Liverpool Makefest/Upton Scarecrow trail from last year, while hikes from 18 and Jan 19, so far, plus Halton Comic Con and Chavassic Park, which has led me te rewatch Jurassic Park!

So, still lots to go, including a New Scarecrow Trail, in the meantime, here’s last years!


INFINITE WHONIVERSES – Coming this Summer, The Doctors who saved Christmas!

IW 6a

Here’s something I hadn’t planned to do this weekend, make an update for IW. I’ve had litrally no time to work on it, but now I’ve got my mornings free again (for the moment) I’m trying to catch up on the backlog of things to do that haven’t been done yet.

17 videos from last year, a dozen from this year, a bunch of stories (a dozen submitted!), hikes, pitches and jobs to apply for. Yep, the juggling Octopus is back in town, yay. Already missed a few deadlines for a few jobs, so trying to do something about the half dozen still being advertised.

ANYWAY- IW will happen toward the end of the year. Got the Summer to sort it. The NeoDoctor Stop-motion vids will be part of it, once I’ve got voices sorted. So here’s another poster/cover- a taste of Things to Come!

Thronizing of the Epic Metanarrative-Doctor Who’s Metanarrative- Welcome to Infinite Whoniverses

IW55THThronizing of the Epic Metanarrative-

Doctor Who’s Metanarrative- Welcome to Infinite Whoniverses


By Ian Cai Mercer



“A Timelord? But they’re forbidden to interfere.” “This one calls himself The Doctor, and does nothing but interfere.”

The Cyber lieutenant and Cyber leader- Earthshock Part 2


With the 55th Anniversary Season over with (Series 11- or Season 37 if you’re counting from Season 26) I have been re-evaluating my own efforts. With 80 stories over four and a half years, plus Dr. Rrr’s guide to the Whoniverses and other sundry writings, there are two possible directions to go in.

The first, as originally envisaged, is to carry on series 6 and 7 in episodic form. The alternate approach is something I’ve called Thronizing of the epic Metanarrative. Yes, it’s that word again- Paracosm/Metanarrative- if you don’t get it yet, go see Avengers Endgame. 22 movies and a number of TV Series over 11 years led to the culmination in Avengers Endgame, a triumph in narrative storytelling. While the epic Fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire has seven published books, with two more to go, the TV adaptation has ended. The first book was in 73 chapters, each 3rd Person limited omniscient.  Nine characters are featured-

Eddard: 15 chapters

Catelyn: 11

Daenerys: 10

Tyrion: 9

Jon Snow: 9

Bran: 7

Sansa: 6

Arya: 5

Will: 1 (the Prologue)

The weaving together of each Narrative thread is 780 pages and over 300k words, but the shortest book in the series so far. It’s an interesting study and it crossed over into the TV version, with twenty four character threads that needed wrapping up in the final season. I wonder if it’s something I can do for IW.

So, whilst the majority of The Doctor’s Adventures have occurred in one universe, there have been occasional side trips- the 4th Universe/the Infernoverse/ Arthurverse/E-Space in the Classic series. The Alternate Earth with Cybermen/House and a couple of others in the new series. I’ve started over a dozen storylines with Alternate Doctors, each weaving together in seven series, with an option for more storylines afterward. The question is do I attempt it? I’m thinking, with the lack of time, plus how the Neodoctor stop-motion mini-series still hasn’t been finished, then no, at least not yet. NDA was supposed to be a prelude, but having technical problems with Youtube means I’m gonna have to find another platform for videos and I’m still trying to catch up with other things.

Anyway, there’s an update at least. Things will be moving forward, even if it is just at a snail’s pace- we will get there eventually!
