Don’t you cry no more”

CARRY ON WAYWARD DOCTORS-

The timeroads travelled so far…

In a Prelude to ‘Battlefield’ in the Arthurian Realm, Morgaine becomes jealous when Merlin takes her place as Arthur’s Advisor, then learns of Arthur’s betrothal to Guinevere. She is enraged and starts down a Dark Path in her quest for vengeance.

An Alternate 8th Doctor finishes a Timewar against a Slug-like enemy and imprisons them in the Pandoriatrix.

The STARDIS crew enters the Time Rider Reality through holes in the Dimensional wall and help Sal and others trapped in Chaos Space.

Dr. RRR! Beats The Feline Masterrr at a chocolate Invasion, then a TimeDalek Incursion of Widnes and goes on a Grailquest across the Whoniverses.

The Temporal Adjustment Bureau sees the dangers of a new Jagaroth Empire, so sends the 4th Doctor to Paris to stop Scaroth changing history.

Taking Davius home, the Timelady 10th Doctor sets off on a quest but falls into a trap set by The Mistress of Lies and regenerates.

The 4th Doctor boldly goes where he’s never been before as he crosses over to an alternate timeline to help the Timeship Tempest get back on track.

After arriving in the Gallifreyan Intergalactic Federation, The STARDIS crew are taken prisoner. The NeoGallifreyan Doctor regenerates into his 14th life and Tori uses her powers to stop a Screamer, like an Interdimensional Shark from tearing the universe apart.

The Timewars will escalate into OMNIWARS as The Supreme Obliterator TimeDalek remembers his previous life as A Doctor and shuts down every Centuroid Armada across the Whoniverses.

Doctors collide as the new 11th TimeLady Doctor meets the 14th NeoGallifreyan Doctor and the STARDIS crew. They help her leave her Reality for good.

The STARDIS is captured by the evil and twisted forces of the Interdimensional Gallifreyan Inquisition.

Tortured and interrogated, The NeoDoctor realises the identity of the Supreme Inquisitor-

He is The Dark Doctor, the Abomination, The Time Ripper, the Beast, The Valeyard.

The 14th NeoDoctor’s nightmare is just beginning.

SIDEBAR- DR RRR SERIES 1 AND 2-

IW went off on a tangent as we tried to develop a spin-off, giving Dr. RRR his own series. It proved harder to do and was the main reason it has taken over TWO years to prepare Series 5. In the end, Dr RRR’s adventures have been re-integrated into the main series strand again.

Ian’s Travelblogs no more- Beyond 6th anniversary

tvp6aTigletverse Travel and Photography- update

I’ve been reading a bunch of old blogposts from 2011/2012. I did a lot of hiking back then, also writing up where I went to as well. That was before the video blogging, or Vlogging on Youtube.

I’ve never got the time these days, nor an organising principle to get myself, err, organised!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA in 2016, creating Tigletverse Travel and Photography, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest. BUT NOW ON FLICKR! With Wild Walks on the Welshside kicking off 2018- so far I have been to Wepre Park (twice), Flint Castle, Loggerheads, Llwyni ponds, Bailey Hill in Mold, Caergwrle Castle, Southport and a walk to Another Place for an Awesome sunset, Chester in the Snow and round St. George’s Hall for my Birthday and finally going round Spike Island in the fog one Monday morning, and that was all before Easter!

I have also been along the Bridgewater Canal- Preston Brook section, Etna Park with a bit of the Buckley Heritage Trail, Pex Hill and Blundell’s Hill after a job interview (which I didn’t get!) Liverpool Lightnight, including the performance by Bring the Fire Project. I also saw the Museum of the Moon, which is an artwork based on NASA photographs and seems to be on tour in several places at the same time. I have also taken a few pics of the real thing, along with Sun pictures, including New Brighton and West Kirby Marine Lake.

Event-wise, Wales Comic con was awesome, been to Liverpool museum and an amble round Chester on the Upton Scarecrow Trail.

I have been attempting to catch up on a mass of editing, of both photos but mainly videos, so hopefully will have caught up with those by the end of June, which will bring me to 500 videos, though the next episode of Dr. RRR’s Guide to the Whoniverses is going to be more complex than the Morbius one, so WHO knows when that’ll be completed!

So that’s it, that’s the big update for Spring and the Summer-so-far on the Hiking/Event front.

STAY GROOVY AND SMOOTHIE!

 

 

GREY DOMINION- Trailer 1- I slept through the apocalypse

GREY DOMINION- Trailer 1- I slept through the apocalypse

gd2

I’ve put up a new video on my Youtube channel. Shocking, I know! After putting up a dozen hikes and events from Jan-March, I’m now behind again on April’s events. One thing I spent most of last weekend on was the footage I had shot of ‘The Mothership’ or Mersey Dome at Pierhead, New Brighton and Woodside the other week. This is part of Grey Dominion, an unfinished film script I first outlined back in 1997/98. Set in 2028, a decade after Contact with the Grey Dominion, the last few resistors discover the truth behind the Greys and witness the End of the Grey Lord’s reign.

There are several obvious influences- V, War of the Worlds, Independence Day. When I learned that the new version of War of the Worlds was being shot in Liverpool, I thought I had best get a move on with my own version.

I was going to work on the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels- again featuring an invasion centred on Liverpool. In fact, most of my scripts/short film ideas are set in or around the city and I’ve made over a hundred videos of different places and events over past five years. GD I actually pitched to Phil Redmond when I was involved with Shout radio- the Student radio society at JMU, but didn’t really develop it into a Radio play. I did pitch a Doctor Who version in about 2000 to BBC Books, but that wasn’t accepted, so I lost interest and worked on other things.

I have also been watching V again, as it was the 35th Anniversary last week. Most of the storyline of GD began as a ‘Liverpool Resistance’ story, although it was headed by Stevie Kuza, a Japanese student. When I changed the Lead to Lucius, who I thought might be Black, but I don’t know if that would be best. I mean, what do I know about Casting? I’ve sent CV’s to Agents in the past and heard nothing, I’ve cast myself in several puppet shows including doing Dalek voices, plus had my Nephew’s in Pawlock , but Casting Other People? Okay, let’s do it!

So, I will be getting that sorted in the next couple of months and hopefully get two more trailers done and the main shoot by the end of the summer- though I am aware I’m not the best at scheduling either- IW 5 has only one story out of six finished, so that’s dragging its feet. But the journey to get GD made has begun!

Events- FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI- Liverpool Comic Con Edition

033It was yet another manic Sunday as I headed off on an epic journey to the Echo Exhibition centre in Liverpool for a Regeneration of Liverpool comic con nearly three weeks ago.

When I heard that MCM had dropped Liverpool from its roster, I had hoped someone else might take over. Phil from Mersey Comic Con, the first CC event I went to at Liverpool Uni in 2015, OR Paul who put on the excellent Southport CC, or Dave from MSE, or Loz from Hamfest or Alistair from Chester or Jaime from Wales.

Stepping into the breach at the Exhibition centre was Andy who runs FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI weekend at Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Trafford Park, Manchester. FTLOSF was the best CC of 2016. A perfect way to end the year. I got so many pictures and enough clips that ended up in about half a dozen videos, including two episodes of Dr. RRR and the cosplay group shoot. Funtimes.

December 2017 was less fun. I had wanted to go Saturday and then Wales CC Sunday, but Saturday had sold out because William Shatner was there, so went Sunday. It was a bit cramped and overcrowded, it didn’t help there was queues all over, so I took what photos I could and went back for Movie Wonderland at the end of Christmas, which was like a ghost town, but much better for shooting videos!

Anyway, the week before the event I had strained a muscle in my leg and had been limping to work, so Saturday rested it.

I thought it was much better Sunday, but as I walked up the steps there was a massive spasm and it was painful hobbling round. Think I might have overdone it a bit! Even sitting down for lunch (at £10 for fries, 5 pieces of chicken and a 7up) it still ached, so got a few interviews, although the background chatter was still noisy, but then, the upstairs lounge area wasn’t available this time. I hope that changes for next year. The Arena Stage wasn’t used either, might have been because there was a Gymnastics event on, but I hope the stage area might be moved back in there next time.

So, for a first attempt it was really good, shame I couldn’t enjoy it more as my leg was being such a pain, both figuratively and literally!

I think though there should be a Thunderbirds exhibit next time, as Andy and his team did jump in just like International Rescue

Thanks to Christian W, Andy T and Thomas H for the interviews.

Thanks to Delroy, Mark, and all the Cosplayers!

Thanks Paul, Nic, Sheikh and other stallholders/exhibitors

Thanks to the Andy and the Organisers for rescuing it. And Exhibition Centre staff for hosting.

Also- my favourite moment was being on a Colonial Turbine- the flying bike from Galactica 1980- Thanks Mark, Kev and Phil!

NEXT TIME- TIMEQUAKE!

A TIGLETVERSE PRESENTATION 2018

“THE FORCE IS A BIT ACHEY IN THIS ONE!”

 

INFINITE TIGLETVERSES- COMING SOON!

itv2I’ve wanted to make some original stories/Films for a while now. It seems whenever I focus on Dr. Rrr/Infinite Whoniverses other things don’t get done- like the Photo/hiking updates

STORIES- They’re everywhere. But sometimes you have to go out and find them.

The good ones, the Best ones are the hardest to find. You have to go further and farther out to catch them.

This year, Infinite Tigletverses is boldly going places never been before, doing something completely different and being more ambitious than ever. Seeking Stories-

And no matter where it takes us,

We’re gonna find ‘em!!

Infinite Tigletverses- Autumn/Winter 2017/2018

 

 

Anything can happen Tuesday- My Directorial debut!

Yes, I am doing more than directing traffic or kids in the dinner queue!  One of the things I’ve had at the back of my mind for a while is producing/directing short films, live action rather than just me or my nephews and puppets.

Confusions is a series of one-act plays and I’m directing Drinking Companions, an interesting if somewhat dialogue-heavy scene set in a bar. While quite static, the challenge has been to make it engaging and interesting, which the actors are bringing life to. So I’m glad the opportunity.  Next week will be the conclusion and I am eager to see how it all turns out.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confusions

It got me musing on what else can count- directing myself and the hiking Vlogs/diaries maybe? Tiglet’s shenanigans and Dr. RRr has made me a puppet-master (ish) but directing people is a great step forward. Then that got me thinking I have directed Cosplayers/models for photos, so it’s another thing to build on.anything-can-happen-tuesdays-1

We’ll just have to see how it goes!

 

7th Blogversary

anniversary-2x7th blogversary

I know it’s a few days late, but that’s life at the moment, things not getting done and it seems to take FOREVER to get stuff updated. I am finally catching up on pictures for Tigletverse Facebook page, videos updated- no chance! I have submitted eight short stories this month, the most at one time, and yes, there’s been a rejection already, ah well, Ce la vie!

 stranger_things_poster

In amidst the entire editing/tidying/sorting/recycling etc I have started painting/modelling again- a Dalek for Infinite Whoniverses- The OmniStrategist and a Snowspeeder kit, which I’ve broke the engine off, so need glue to fix it. Gotten into Game of Thrones series 7, and Stranger Things series 1, and the soundtrack rocks, well, it’s Synthwave, so ish!

Anyway, there’s a bit of an update, still plodding along. My new academic diary from Sept17 to july18 says ‘plan the work and work the plan’ which is great advice. Just need to find a plan now that works!

Hi ho, let’s get to it then- Happy 7th Blogversary!
