I'm guessing your 55" set is plasma so I can understand why there was no wow factor.
Nope Sony LED range - a great TV - in fact I have three of them. Its just that, compared to the projector, 3D on the TV looks cramped

Re: BBC Suspend 3D

I've really enjoyed the TV 3D that I've seen and thought the Olympics were great. Capacity limits of Freeview mean that the BBC havent really made the most of 3D but I have to say that even on large screen TVs I just dont think it has much of an impact.

There is a wonderful example of this in an episode of Thunderbirds where Parker asks of Lady Penelop "this Mr 'Odge - is he part of our horg-anisation?"

Much more likely to have influenced The Young Ones "Bambi" episode where Kendall Mint Cake buzzes and gives the answer "Lenin!"

It's all insanity of course with a box ticking mentality trumping all notions of logic and consistency I do so adore the negotiations sketch.

But where else would you have scheduled it other than 1900? Any later after coronation street and you would presumably have played opposite Brookside thus annoying soap fans.

Yes they do re doctor who fans... Re the cost of Apollo crippling the US, I really doubt it.

Too many doctor who fans seem to live life akin to a manic depressive drunk. They know only two emotional states; euphoria and despair

And a remake of The Quatermass Experiment, but as a 50s period piece. None of this tedious updating the script malarkey. Micheal Kitchen would make an ...
