    I looked on IMDB and she has not worked since, so I have no clue what she looks like now, sort of an appperance in the SJA we may never know.

    She & Luke would get on very well ;)

    Picked up my "Unearthly Child" version of the First Doctor this week, and having recently finished watching my first Hartnell episode ("The Aztecs"), I must say the likeness is remarkable. But having not yet seen the pilot episode, can someone tell me the significance of the skull that comes with the Doctor?

    ^I agree, the similarity is uncanny. Much better than the normal issue.

    As for the skull, the second part of the episode "An Unearthly Child" is titled "The Cave of Skulls"... :techman:

    At the end of the first episode, the Doctor, his granddaughter Susan, and her teachers Ian and Barbara accidently travel to the year 10,000 BC. They meet a tribe of ancient people, and have a little adventure. While trapped in caves, they discover several skulls, and their escape involves the use of those skulls.

    The first episode is An Unearthly Child. It is one of the best episodes of any Doctor Who right up through this week's episode. Unfortunately, the three episodes that follow it are among the very worst. You can easily watch just the first episode, to see how it all started, and skip the rest.

    Agreed! That's the only part I show anyone interested in the pilot...

    Yeah it's definitely... missing something. But to be fair, it would probably be impossible to EVER recreate a set like that in toy form.

    Especially since a lot of what makes that set work-- and seem as magical as it does-- is the lighting.

    My camera is cheap and horrible, so I ran these through Photoshop to give them some worth. All images clickable thumbnails... :techman:

    For a cheap and horrible cam, it's not bad. ;)

    Mine sucks. It's about five years old, no image stabilization and it's crap in low light. Actually, that camera is why I keep writing web comic stories but not shooting them.

    And that Tardis set looks like shit. There's so much missing from the walls (cardboard is cheap CO... spring for some) and, unlike the Ninth/Tenth Tardis, it won't be as easy to fill the walls in with the printouts floating around the net. Add to that NO lights or sound and... meh!

    And I see unsightly joints in Amy's bare legs!! :(

    As for that play set, yeah, it's definitely missing the razzle-dazzle of the real thing.

    I've never considered them as a seperate story I enjoy all 4 episodes.

    Just got an Amy and Drone - new packaging is interesting - been decades since I've opened carded figures with actual card backs. The Star Wars/Transformers/Dapol days

    That play set kind of sucks...it's lacking something I agree and not even the sounds. It looks dull and badly put together.

    "Cheap" is the word you are searching for...

    Cheap is a damned good word. The more I look at that set, the cheaper it looks.

    :lol: No idea! I just found it on Tom's website. Probably for a play or something. It stood out as stark and unsettling to me, as that's our lovable Tom Baker! :lol: :techman:

    I'm going to be selling several figures from my collection, most still unopened. If anyone is interested, let me know.
