How are they editing The Simpsons?

By the way, I just watched my copy of Destiny of the Daleks (which I had not seen in decades before I bought it last month) and I must say that I liked it. It wasn't as good as the preceding The Key to Time or the later E-Space Trilogy, but it was enjoyable. And I so love Romana II.
Any reference to sex and/ or violence, no matter how small or slight, is removed, ruining some great episodes. For example, the first I noticed of this was in the episode where Homer mistakenly buys an SUV intended for women. After Lenny and Carl confront him with this, Carl says of Marge:

I always thought she'd be a dynamo in the sack, you know?
Which C4 changed to:

I always thought she'd be a dynamo -- you know?
Which I found highly irritating. Day by day I notice more of these little oddities.

Hope C4 never shows Doctor Who, or we'll miss Jamie saying 'Look at the size of that thing!'


(thus bringing us back near the topic)

I really liked 'Destiny of the Daleks' too - good story, great location work, and Lalla really hits the ground running as Romana II (love her fight scene with Commander Sharell in Part 4 - does she grab his crotch at one point....?).

Sadly, the story is let down by poor production values (the Daleks look like thy're held together with gaffer tape!), and David Gooderson, who makes a poor Davros.

Otherwise, one of my all-time favourites.

Don't forget the ill-fitting mask that was made for Michael Wisher!

Doing very well in my local tesco - 2nd on tv chart last week. Not making an impression in other supermarkets seemingly - just no copies on display.
HMV in big trouble so no copies of any show/ film added to existing stock.

Re: Channel 4 - not shocking for me that they cut in the way they do..
Anyone remember their bizarre choice of Angel for a teatime slot and therefore being cut to ribbons?

You buy your Doctor Who at the local supermarket? Interesting.

My friends and I will be doing our part next week in order to help out The Reign of Terror's numbers by purchasing our copies on the day of release.

It is sad that they emasculate The Simpsons over there; it is one of my other favorite T.V. shows.

My local Sainsburys has started using the same pricing for dvds as sainsburysentertainment.co.uk, which often seems to be the cheapest place to buy these days. It means I can be sure I can get dvds on release day without paying the earth for them!

Well it's a cheap thrill carrying the item home myself... and I don't want the postman to get the impression I buy endless DVDs

I had never thought of adjusting my behaviour based upon what the postman would think of me.

not surprised about HMV, i went to my local one today to see if they had reign but they didn't have a single Dr who DVD! The DVDs they did have were impossibly expensive.

I have been thinking about this and it seems akin to our WalMart where you can purchase food (and a lot of people do purchase their food there) and they also sell DVDs, guns, electronics and just about everything else.


P.S. Do we have any more dates for after Reign of Terror that are for certain? Here in the U.S., we only have the two Special Editions coming out in March and then that is it for confirmed dates. There are a few more for the U.K., but, running out of scheduled releases (at least here in the U.S.) in less than five weeks seems a bit short sighted.

Is that to compensate for 'The Ice Warriors' being pushed back? Or will something replace Ark in the schedule?

Nuts. Well, I will keep the chart as is until we have a little more something pinned down. However, delays suck.

The Doctorwhonews.net http://releases.doctorwhonews.net/index.php?filter=DVD still has the date as March 11th (UK) and March 12th (US) for the Special Edition of The Aztecs and I would think that they would be the most official.

Oddly enough, April 8th of 2002 was when The Ark in Space was originally released for Region 2. I wonder if this is somehow the source of some of the confusion.
