Doctor Who - Matt Smith On What He Thought Was His Best Series


Matt Smith at a recent Wizard World Comic Con was asked what his best and favorite series was.  I'm not surprised by the answer and in fact I have to agree with him as the series he picked was my favorite of his also.  Here is his answer and what he thought about it all.

"For me, the best storytelling was in series five.  It had great adventure and great clarity, and I loved the whole idea about the Pandorica and the Big Bang. It was the one I connected with most. Looking back, I think some of my best work was in my first series, because I was actually taking real risks and that was a real moment"
Then he was asked what his best speech was during his tenure.  "I think it has to be when I was talking to the spaceships in The Pandorica Opens"
Then he commented on the big reveal in Series 6 about River being Rory and Amy's daughter. "I think in terms of revelations, River being Amy's daughter was a bit 'what the hell!'"

Captain America – The Winter Soldier and Agents of SHIELD Overview

Over the weekend I watched around 3 hours of the some of the best Marvel Superhero Avengers product I have ever see.  Captain America - The Winter Soldier was a spectacular movie that had a near perfect plot and action mixture.  It was a perfect continuation of the Captain America character and storyline from the original Captain America - The First Avenger and The Avengers movie.  The character, played by Chris Evans sticks to his guns in an ever build up of conflict from the problems with SHIELD to still having to exist into today's society to leaving behind his life of the past to dealing with threats from that same past.  This movie sees a slow reveal and decay of an existing society that Steve Rogers is already questioning and his concerns suddenly become so much more.

Philip Morris and the Last Omnirumor - We Hope

by Ken Parker

Philip Morris, Missing Episode Hunter examines more film cans while his nemesis, Ian Levine, waits patiently


The Omnirumor saga is getting weirder, uglier, more frustrating and exciting all at once.  A statement by the TIEA Executive Director seems promising - 

T.I.E.A understands the passion felt by Doctor Who fans and that looking for missing episodes of Doctor who plus many other shows is an important but tiny part of the work that T.I.E.A does.The main aim of this organisation is to assist those archives whose own cultural heritage is under threat.If any programmes do still exist T.I.E.A will endeavor to recover them safely as with web of fear and enemy of the world.T.I.E.A are not sponsored by any organisation we are a completely independent body we work alongside many organisations such as the B.F.I .


However as much as people want specific programmes found wishing them into existence or starting rumors will not magically return them .Individuals trying to extract information which does not exist or is commercially confidential will be deleted unread any legitimate inquires for T.I.E.A LTD services are welcome.

Stay Tuned..
Executive Director 
Philip Morris.
