More on the IDW versh, grey market, DOCTOR WHO comics. Sounds like the writer has a decent handle on it.
"...a thirty foot tall cat rampaging through 1970s London, knocking buses flying..."Goodies! I am happy.
Yeah, I liked that reference, too. The Goodies was a show with a great visual ambition, which its budget could never meet, on the BBC, on a Saturday evening. The WHO comparisons are significant!What I thought was telling was the guy knows there's a line to be walked: comics don't have an effects budget, so you can show anything you can think of, WHO on TV doesn't, so go too far out and, suddenly, it's lost its essence.
Oops, what I meant was WHO on TV does have a budget, what it doesn't have is unlimited resources bound only by the imagination of a writer and an artist. That remains the preserve of comics.Continuing on - maybe this is why my all-time favourite Doctor Who strip so far was the Mick McMahon one JUNKYARD DEMON - it has a set-up that'd be very doable on TV: one space station set, one old-school Cyberman, The Doctor and the TARDIS.
