UPDATE ON UNDERWATER MENACE

So yesterday there was a facebook statement regarding The Underwater Menace. The statement from “Doctor Who and the Tardis- Classic years” caused a lot of happiness, but it was quickly taken down. I sent a message to the group responsible for the post asking for clarification. Was it all just a wind up? Some sort of joke?

They got back to me earlier today with this:

Sorry about that, Dan. It wasn’t a wind up, but we were informed that our information may have been incorrect, so we’re investigating further

So there you go. I had always thought that they posted their information in good faith. The group has 45,000 likes and it seemed weird to jeopardize that fan base by pulling a stunt or wind up that might anger people.  Who knows, maybe after investigating they can give us more solid information? One can only hope. Until then…

UPDATE- Omni Bite – Underwater Menace

After all the rumours swirling about the animation of The Underwater Menace being cancelled or delayed, there has been an unofficial facebook announcement by Doctor Who and the Tardis-Classic Years claiming that they received word from 2Entertain that the DVD is expected to be released this Autumn. There is no firm date yet, but that we should expect an announcement  later this month.

Of course, this is still far from official. It’s just a fan facebook page, not an official source. But if what they say is true, it presents a couple of different options.

Number one, that the animation was really just delayed, not cancelled as many believed, and that the animation company Planet55, really did just need some extra time to get it finished. You can read more about the animation conspiracy. I, and many more like me, think that if UWM comes out fully animated, this could possibly be the final nail in the main omnirumour’s coffin. I do believe that Marco Polo has been found and will be released sometime, but beyond that? It is hard to say.

Number two, the announcement they mention later this month might, just possibly, maybe, oh please let it be true, a confirmation of the omnirumour, and as part of that announcement they will give us a preliminary release schedule for the rest of the year. Underwater Menace has been one of the most rumoured  stories because of its unknown status. Will it be the focal point of an omnirumour announcement in the next two weeks? I can only hope.

So there you have the latest speculation. As always, nothing in this article is official or can be confirmed, it is all just speculation. Only time will tell.

 

UPDATE- The facebook post that started all of this has been taken down. Was it all a wind up? Or were they not supposed to talk about it? It’s a page with nearly 50,000 likes so I’m not sure that they would post something just to wind people up, but who knows…

I have since sent a message to the group on facebook asking for clarification or an explanation. I will let you know if I hear anything.

Also some have pointed out that 2Entertain no longer exists, that the company goes by BBC DVD since 2012. I don’t think this necessarily means that the info they posted is false. It could be from someone that they knew through 2entertain or they may just said that instead of the proper BBC DVD, by accident.  I don’t know.

Big News and No News in the Omnirumour!

We started the week out with nothing but bad news. Easter is off, they said. Maybe sometime in May or June. Hopefully. That led me to my poll, when do you think the next announcement will come. Haven’t voted yet? Come on over and add your voice. If you did vote, why not see what everyone else believes? So, we were prepared for a quiet few weeks before things might have picked up again. What we weren’t prepared for is T.I.E.A. to come out swinging!

So there you go, the news the rumours, the weird and the wild from the past seven days.

More on that Gatiss Episode- Spoilers

Ben Miller

Alright, so Steven Moffat just confirmed that Ben Miller will be appearing in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.

Here’s what Moffat had to say:

“Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it’s about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

So he’s going to be the bad guy. Now, if we are assuming that they are talking about the only Gatiss story that we have heard anything about so far, episode three, then what can we take from this? Previous reports state that the episode could be titled Robots of Sherwood and feature characters from the Robin Hood legend, so… Is Miller going to be a classic Robin Hood bad guy? Or an alien playing the part of one?
