  ‘Serenity: Leaves On The Wind’ is the latest in the on-going series of comics devoted to the story of Malcolm Reynolds and the crew of the Serenity. For those unfamiliar with the world of Firefly (gasp!), these comics are all that remain of a beloved TV show ‘Firefly’ that died too quick a death […]

Ultraviolet: The Complete Series: Collector’s Edition (DVD review).

I reviewed the Channel 4 1998 TV series ‘Ultraviolet’ DVD volume several years back and bemoaned that I wish there were more extras. This edition has them! I’ll only briefly recap the story this time. Code V or 5 is the name for vampires or leeches in modern day. It’s a shame that this edition […]

Spyder’s Web: The Complete Series (DVD review).

Back in 1972, I came across this rather quaint espionage series called ‘Spyder’s Web’ on television. As this was a while before we have a colour television set, seeing this series again in black and white, mostly because all but two of the colour versions are lost didn’t really bother me. Back then, I didn’t […]

The Tomorrow People 2013 Pilot: an assessment by: GF Willmetts  (TV review).

Watching this second remake of ‘The Tomorrow People’, the last being in 1992, this version owes more to the films ‘Jumper’ (2008), ‘Scanners’ (1981), ‘Push’ (2009) and ‘X-Men’ than its source material which really only gets lip service. If anything, I thought the original 1970s series was better and when you consider how kitchen sink […]

What Is Canon? an article of what is and isn’t by: GF Willmetts (article).

What is canon? I’m not referring to a religious rank, a piece of artillery or even a rotund 70s TV detective. It is the difference between the source material and franchise material or spin-offs. What we regard as being officially recognised part of the continuity or more commonly called canon. Rarely do the twain mix, […]

Doctor Who: The Time Of The Doctor by Steven Moffat – a review by GF Willmetts.

Now, what to say about ‘The Time Of The Doctor’ without giving away spoilers. If you want those, I’m sure some other places will no doubt spill the beans. I’ll just try to keep them to the minimum and address the problems as I see them. Y’see this story does have problems. It feels like […]
