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!

THE TIMEDALEK INVASION OF LIVERPOOL PART TWO- AFTERMATH!

15th Neo doctor – THE TIMEDALEK INVASION OF LIVERPOOL PART 2- AFTERMATH

 

Over the last year or so, I’ve been working on ideas for IW and ending the series. August 2016 I wrapped up series4 killing off the 14th NeoDoctor and him regenerating into a Female Incarnation. I had a few ideas for a successor, primarily a shoot on Geek Girls featuring Moira Lafae as the Fourth Doctor. It should have been easy, but I had to get the follow-up written, which has taken a little bit longer than planned, (yeah, a year in fact!) I had planned last March, then the summer, then winter 2017, but adding and changing things meant it kept getting pushed back. Then I had to get permission off the photographers, which took a bit longer, as there were three credited, but one I couldn’t figure out. In the end it just made sense for me to find someone I had photographed and get them on board the STARDIS!

Enter Annie, who I met at MCM Liverpool a year ago

The Burning Skies Cosplay group is a bunch of Doctor Who cosplayers on Facebook, from all over the world, but based mainly in the UK. I’ve been to a couple of their shoots, which have been such fun. So, once Annie had agreed, I had to crop the photos and then sort out the covers- and voila!  The 15th Neodoctor is here at last!

Now I’ve got to figure out what to do for the multiple/multiversal Doctor mashup for the finale of Series 5, oh what joy!

In the meantime- here it is at last- THE TIMEDALEK INVASION OF LIVERPOOL PART TWO- AFTERMATH!

Happy reading!

1 reason Jodie Whittaker is perfect as the New Doctor

15th dr1 reason Jodie Whittaker is perfect as the New Doctor—

“My Successor? It could even be a Woman. There’s no reason why The Doctor should always be a Man”

Tom Baker on his ‘retirement’ from the role of Doctor Who.

(Quoted from Regeneration- The Mystery of Ages. The Time Travellers Guide by Peter Haining. 1987. (1995 edition))

 

Yes I know I have used that quote before, but it seems some people just don’t get it. It has finally happened. Speculated on in the tabloid papers and online for years and parodied in the Red Nose day sketch ‘Curse of the fatal death’ in which Joanna Lumley featured, Moffat has been paving for the way for it for the last few years, with the mention of The Corsair being a ‘bad girl’ to the General regenerating onscreen into the female general and the appearance of Missy.

 

There are probably a whole host of reasons I could make a list of, 10 or 5 are the most popular way of doing it, but really, there is ONE good, solid reason why –

BROADCHURCH

This is a far cry from the first thing I saw her in- attack the block, which was rubbish, and here’s my review of it-

https://iancaimercer.wordpress.com/2011/11/14/attack-the-block-dvd/

Anyway, I posted the video I made shortly after the announcement of Jodie Whittaker being cast as the new Doctor.

I didn’t want to get into the whole argument of whether it’s a good move, but you know it is really, so just accept it.

As I said before- Regeneration 101 will go into the whole mechanics of how a sex-change Regeneration works, and there has been precedent, not just over the last couple of years but in the classic series too. Tom Baker himself said why not, and there’s even been a XenoRegeneration (Species-change) I’m also going to explain why the numbering is wrong (15th not 13th!) and get into that as well, oh joy!

But for now, just enjoy my video and the hints of what’s to come in both Doctor Who and Infinite Whoniverses series 5- now rescheduled for Easter 2018!

And watch Broadchurch!

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
