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

Welcome to Anything can happen 2017!

Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway. A Fresh Start, a New Beginning, the slate wiped clean.keep-calm-because-anything-can-happen-1

To start with- I went to the shop and bought some wellies. I think my subconscious might be trying to tell me something- that was an impulse buy. Maybe my little jaunt round Talacre taught me to be more prepared than I already usually am for whatever eventualities may occur. It looks like it’ll be an epic five-part video anyway, plus I haven’t updated the five year anniversary like I thought I would.

Another thing I am planning in advance is Dr. Rrr! Series 2. In amongst the tidying and sorting I have not watched much this Christmas. (Really? How about Deep Space 9 series 7, or Brave or Thunderbolt Fantasy, or Doctor Who- The Return of Doctor Mysterio/Hell Bent/Spearhead from space, or Yuri on Ice finale (yes, really!) or even last episode of series 6 of Game of Thrones, what a revelation at the end!)

Okay, I might have watched a few things, but nothing really Christmassy, unless you count Nativity 3 in school or Cinderella in New Brighton, but that was before Term ended. Rogue One doesn’t count as an Xmas film, but saw it twice, the second time enjoyed it a bit more, but definitely more darker than others, about same as ep 3 I expect, but the prequels don’t really count anyway, in my opinion.

So there we go, anything can happen now I’ve got some wellies. It’s like when Ford Prefect tells Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that the only thing he needs to survive is a towel, so I guess that’s next on my shopping list.

For now though, I’m eating my first pizza of 2017 and watching the New Sherlock- now there’s an epic combo if ever there was one.

Happy 2017- Get ready and keep your wellies handy, ‘cos anything can Happen!!

Merry Christmas from the Tigletverse!

Well, It’s been an epic few days since Term ended, almost got swept away by the tide on a three-hour hike from Prestatyn to Talacre on Thursday, Friday I tidied, sorted, cleaned, washed up and recycled, as well as last-minute present shopping and today I did a bit more of the same. Honestly, next year I’ll try and get everything done six months in advance, crazy daze!

There is still so much to get done, as well as do some planning for board games and a few videos to edit- including the 300th, but that’ll have to be Boxing Day.

For now it’s a Merry Christmas from the Tigletverse!

Dr. RRR’s Guide to the WHOniverse – IW S4 OVERVIEW AND FANFIC FEST

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

tainted-love-cover-3

I know I know, it’s a bit late- Having an overview/look back at Series 4 of IW and thinking ahead to what’s on the Horizon.

Well, it took a blinking long time to complete! That’s the most obvious point- April until September, well as usual my excuse is that life/work/family/friends/chores/hiking and other sundry stuff got in the way. I wanted to do more, but that all went down the drain, especially trying to finish it. More on that later, but the fact that several stories had been completed/nearly finished meant, or should have meant that it would all go smoothly. It didn’t.

Dr. Rrr was meant to take up the slack, but deciding to just do videos did not help either. My personal favourite story has to be Rose Tyler and the Mannequin Monsters as a World Without the Doctor story. But the biggest nightmare was the Finale, what eventually…

Dr. RRR- Series 1 completed!

I drowned the TARDIS in the summer and finally came up with a story for it!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

shipwrecked-coverThe last two parts of Series 1 of Dr. Rrr are on my YouTube channel, so give them a watch and a like!

Doctors Assemble was shot at Southport Comic Con, hilarious moment when a remote-controlled Dalek got trapped by a bunch of Cosplayers and Dr. Rrr.

Shipwrecked was even more complicated as I had drowned the TARDIS off New Brighton on two days over the summer, then Roary on a dune in-between Hoylake and West Kirby, then I had the strange notion of having Tiglet as the Masterrr get marooned, so set off for Formby, so that makes it the 50th adventure for Infinite Whoniverses- not bad at all.

So, I’m taking a break- yes Dr. Rrr’s Guide to the Whoniverse may come back, there’s the Halloween Special (with Vampires and OMG- The ending is gut-wrenchingly sad- get the hankies ready!) BUT There is some exciting news- which…

Anything Can Happen Tuesday- New Boots!

anything-can-happen-tuesdays-1

Hooray, new boots- These boots are made for walking- he hopes! If they turn out to be waterproof will be even better as the last ones leaked like life rafts made out of Swiss cheese!

Unfortunately I’m having problems with my camera, so haven’t got a picture to share- yet! Hopefully I’ll have it sorted today- but it’s been hell, and I haven’t even gotten to the bus stop- that might make it List the things that Tick me off day- roadworks, delays, loud ringtones, pensioners, babies, teenagers,  late buses. stuff it- think I’ll get the train instead and see how the new boots fit!  I also have the longest hike of the summer yet to edit- Pex Hill-The Long Way Round, so, busy Bee me buzzing about- Have you ever seen a Bee wearing New Boots? They’re shiny!

Right, better get myself sorted, ‘cos like the song says- These Boots are Made For Walking- so let’s get to it shall we?

HIGH HOOOOO!

Why am I still Single?

I realised just recently how long it has been since my last ‘serious’ relationship- 10 years.

That’s right- a decade, doesn’t feel like a stellar achievement, not like six years writing this blog or working in a school, just the exact opposite, a bit depressing at times. It was something I rushed into and ended up regretting for a very long time, but life’s like that- everything and everyone constantly in motion, on the move every day, back-and-forth like yoyos. Perhaps that’s why I haven’t jumped into anything. Oh I did go through a phase of online dating, but reality rarely met expectations, like The Soufflé Girl from Asylum of the Daleks. Because I learned that people do exaggerate and lie on their online profiles.

I won’t go into any details of my dating disasters, maybe I have expectations that are too high and are never met, perhaps sometimes I am too unrealistic maybe?

Another thing I’ve found is when I fall for someone, I fall hard and fast, so when I crash back to Reality, well, I guess the fallout and crater impact are pretty awful sometimes. It’s easy to ‘feel’ infatuated, but what do you do when the object of your affection doesn’t return it or just ignores you? Life throws its curveballs hard and fast, so if you don’t catch it then it knocks you off your feet and onto the cold, hard concrete. (I might have paraphrased a Taylor Swift song there, oh dear!) (I think it’s ‘I knew you were trouble’, maybe??)

Falling flat on your backside, getting winded and confused is another part of the fallout, yet you have to back away and get a grip before you make an even bigger fool of yourself, which I’ve had to do a few times, and it is a difficult thing to do, but necessary for your own sanity.

Anyway, I have come up with a picture that might be a better alternative than swimming around in misery and confusion. I have to say I have been to a few beaches in the UK- Skegness and Hornsea on the East Coast, Exeter and Minehead in the South, Blackpool, New Brighton, West Kirby, Hoylake, Formby, Southport and even Hale in North West and Rhyl, Talacre, Prestatyn, somewhere on Anglesey (can’t remember where) and Aberystwyth in Wales. So found a picture from Hoylake beach- Looking toward the Horizon, off beyond Hilbre Island to Wales and beyond. Might be an interesting metaphor of where I am at. So giving it a go-

Imagine you are sitting on a Beach; it is a sunny, glorious summer day. Maybe you’re sat on a towel or on a deckchair, perhaps sunning yourself or sat underneath the welcome shade of an umbrella. Whatever you like.

The Beach isn’t packed, but there are a lot of people/activities going on around you. There is a bbq going, kids throwing Frisbees and building sandcastles, a dog chasing seagulls, couples holding hands, something of a party in the distance. There are also games- football, volleyball, more football, people flying kites, boats and surfboards on the waves.

Then something catches your attention. A solitary figure just on the Horizon. Faraway, yet moving closer.

In the midst of all the activities, all the distractions around you, they captivate your attention fully. Curious, you strain your eyes to see what is different. You can tell it’s a Woman, a golden Goddess, radiant, gliding along the sand.

And she is heading right towards you.

Straightaway you want to jump up, run over and greet her before anything else catches her attention. She could go over to the bbq, join in a game, meet someone else along the way or change direction and head to the water’s edge.

But no, you stay put, right where you are, enjoying the day. Basking.

Why be worried about something that may or may not even happen?

So you shrug and look away. Watch sandcastles being constructed by future Architects, see someone step into a hole in the sand and laugh at themselves, you sniggering with them. It is such a glorious day.

Then you glance back, she is still approaching you, clearer than before, but still far-off. Maybe you should get up, stretch your legs and go for a wander? Ask if she’d like some company (you wouldn’t mind some just for a change)

But stay put, let her approach you.

Eventually, she is getting nearer, and has noticed you, but still heading in your direction.

It looks like this could be an interesting day after all.

somewhere-on-the-horizon

Okay, may sound like Wishful Thinking, (of which I am the god, king and lord majestic Emperor of!) But I do like the imagery, the metaphor of just being still, not rushing headlong over a romanticised cliff edge and into a heart-breaking pit of oblivion as usual.

Maybe playing the waiting game may not sound like the best strategy, but having done all the others and rushing headlong where Angels fear to tread has never worked out, so let’s try something else shall we?

 

Because you never know who or what may be coming your way.
