Doctor Who - Inside the Tardis

AUCKLAND & WELLINGTON, June 10 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Live On Stage For The First Time In New Zealand

The Tardis will be travelling to New Zealand stopping in Wellington on 5 August and in Auckland on 6 August.

Colin Baker (The Sixth Doctor), Sylvester McCoy (The Seventh Doctor) will join Jon Pertwee’s (The Third Doctor) companion Katy Manning on stage where they will share their experiences and reveal some secrets of the phenomenal 42 year-old BBC show.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
