Happy days are a comin' as I'm just starting watching the War Games in my marathon which means in ten episodes time I will be watching the glorious Pertwee in even more glorious colour.
Or nearly. Living in China I have had to resort to rather underhand means to acquire the Pertwee's catalog and though I have been entirely successful in this I have been unable to locate colour versions of some episodes.
THE MIND OF EVIL 1-6 PLANET OF THE DALEKS 3 THE INVASION OF THE DINOSAURS 1
I hate to ask, but as I'm sure you can imagine, ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY WALK INTO A CHINESE DVD STORE AND BUY PLANET OF THE DALEKS.
If anyone can help me, please send a private message. I do have the episodes in black and white, I'd just prefer to see them in colour AS PERTWEE INTENDED. Who wants to see the dashing outfits of Pert and Grant in monochrome? Who wants to witness in order the most psychedelic era of the show in black and white? Nobody, that's who, and even if you did want to, you can change the settings on your TV.
Sadly, I can't change the settings on my tablet to recolourise.
Oh now THIS pisses me off. Bought Dinosaurs 1. On the BBC store it looks like this, with a colour picture of episode 1:
But once downloaded and paid for, it's the black and white version. Fuck the BBC and fuck paying for it then. Rip off c*nts. Nowhere is there a disclaimer that the first episode is in black and white and in fact it's shown there in the screen grab with two colour pictures like the other episodes.
I thought this thread was a cover for obtaining prints of missing color episodes. I thought it was hilarious. Ricky had all the right background to claim innocence, but his wording left enough room for a double meaning when asked.
I thought it was a spoof of all that talk about missing episodes collectors. But it seems that Ricky really just wants to see the recolorized versions of the episodes.
I'm surprised that BBC are still flogging dinos in B&W, but then the colourisation of it is pretty ropey, and the DVD release used the black and white version as the first choice copy, with the colour one as an extra. The colourisation is such that OI suggest you double check it, as you may have been looking at a colour copy without realising!
All the other episodes you are looking for should be in full colour as they were much better restorations, especially 'Jon Pertwee's Mind of Evil'.
It looks like it's gonna be a mix of Dailymotion and the eps I have. At worst I think I'll be watching the hybrid half and half Ambassadors, with Planet 3 and Dino 1 in monochrome. Considering I've spent more than a year watching the Sixties stuff with 97 recons that's not bad going.
"Chinese firewall" That sounds like something fun..?
For any who don't know, the PIC has a system in place that severely restricts Internet use from a variety of sites, some big like YouTube, Facebook and Google, some apparently random. I could not for example log onto GB without a VPN (a kind of system that fools my device into thinking it's elsewhere I something. I really don't understand it very well).
It plays having with everything and basically streaming stuff or tormenting, even through a VPN is a nightmare.
But I can't complain really. I work three hours a day, have my rent and bills paid and make a reasonable amount of cash. Bad Internet is just an unfortunate downside.
Anyways, Rickets, if you do have to end up watching the patchy hybrid (fear the Hybrid!) colour / B&W version of 'Ambassadors', you could always just make believe that you're watching iton UK Gold on a Sunday morning in 1994 or something.
We could get an entire section on Galley about it: 'The Dr Who: pretending that you're watching Dr Who on UK Gold in 1994 or something - stay in character - no modern day references - perhaps even cosplay in a Nevermind t shirt and a plaid shirt and lank hair - Just for fun'.
True story. Last year I went to see my 8 year old nephew perform in some kind of Christmas dance thing. It was fucking pathetic but of course I made all the right 'oohs and aahs' and pretended I was really glad I'd just wasted 2 hours of my life.
Anyway, one of the parents in attendance, I man who must have been in his forties, was wearing battered Converse, ripped jeans, a plaid shirt and that fucking smiley face Nirvana t-shirt, topped off by a ratty beard and lank bleach blonde hair.
It made me violently sick and the image of that man, frozen in time, yet aged will be burned into my mind until the end of time. It'd be like if I still walked around in tight white jeans, blouses with Marxist slogans on them and dyed black crows nest hair topped off with a liberal dollop of eyeliner and mascara.
At some point you have to realise there is a way to grow old and do it with dignity. But not this bloke. I hope he dies in a fucking fire and his miserable kid too.
When I was a young man I used dress just like a police man and I would go around telling people to watch out and to pull their socks up unless they wanted to spend a night in the cells. One time, I saw an old teacher of mine who was a pretty mean sort back when I was small. I went up and introduced myself to him and told him I was a police man now. He feigned pride in me. Then I kicked the shit out of him and locked him in a wardrobe for several hours.
I've grown out of all that now and mainly wear pyjamas.
