Generic Blogpost Title

My previous odds on animating missing episodes worked on the idea that facial/lip-synch was harder to do than action scenes - for example, surely it must be easier to do a cartoon of the Doctor riding Arthur the horse through a mirror into a ballroom full of clockwork robots than it would be to do Rose and Reneitte's little heart-to-heart? Well, The Ice Warriors sure shows me the opposite is true. Talking heads are apparently a piece of piss to do in comparison to any kind of movement demanding more than Captain Pugwash/Terrance and Phillip style stick figure movement. This is all the more amazing considering the Jackie-Chan-style fight Ian Chesterton puts up in The Reign of Terror.

Still, you be the judge. I'm too busy being heartbroken.

Is this actually what's going to be on the Ice Warriors DVD?

Well. In a way. That's a colour-tinted speed-adjusted music vid by myself USING what IS on the DVD (and has just been released, hence my diabolical diogenic dabblings).

All I can say is it looks really good until anyone has to move from the neck down. And presumably it's cheaper and easier than the frame-by-telesnap frame of Tenth Planet.
