Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited
1x08 The Eighth Doctor
Half an hour on one story -- no mention of the books, audios, comic strips... And because it was made months ago, no mention of The Night of the Doctor either, which is a shame.

4x23 The One with Ross's Wedding Part 1 [5th or so watch]
4x24 The One with Ross's Wedding Part 2 [season finale; 5th or so watch]

The Science of Doctor Who
Prof. Brian Cox's lecture on the real-life science related to concepts from Doctor Who. Essentially, this means time travel, with a diversion into the possible existence of aliens. Interesting, but a shame there was nothing on uniquely Who concepts like something being bigger on the inside.

Dredd Underbelly: Part Three by Arthur Wyatt & Henry Flint
(from Judge Dredd Megazine #342)

Oh -- is that it?!

Well, bluntly, yes. After just three instalments, the story's over, rushing to a conclusion. In the US it'll be collected as a one-shot early next year. Not sure it was worth it.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

This week's purchases include two 3D Blu-rays. I don't have a 3D Blu-ray player (or TV), but that's how the Extended Edition of The Hobbit comes, and that's how the plastic-tat edition of Pacific Rim comes. The latter, incidentally, was a complete waste of money. I know, I should have known better.

Number of titles in collection: 1,635 [up 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,196 [up 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 439 [up 2]

Number of discs in collection: 4,063 [up 10]
Number of films in collection: 1,741 [up 2]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 6,024 [up 2]
Number of short films in collection: 405 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
