Doctor Who-The Parting of the Ways [Fanedit]

Parting of the Ways Fanedit Poster

Discussing this episode on Doctor Who forum “The Hive” got me excited about the potential of tweaking the ending of this episode so that Rose doesn’t resurrect Jack Harkness and there’s no foreshadowing of a regeneration before Eccelston begins his farewell speech.

I was able to pull it off by grabbing a line Eccelston says shortly after Rose says “I bring life” and bring it around to just before she says that line (which then led to a shot of Jack coming to life), the line worked really well and segued neatly into the rest of the scene.

Another tricky part was editing out Jack approaching the TARDIS just before it dematerialised, I had to time the take off just right, and then cut to the interiors, also removing some of Rose’s dialogue so the tone was more sombre, with Rose confused and The Doctor preparing for the end.

Doctor Who-Ressurection of the Daleks Alternative Episode Four [Fanedit]

 

Another short trip in the TARDIS, and to celebrate the long anticipated completion of the Classic Doctor Who Novelization range, we go back to the tail-end of Peter Davison’s era to experience the slaughterhouse that is Eric Saward’s Resurrection of the Daleks.  Saward had gone on record in the Ressurection DVD extras that he would perhaps tighten the bolts on this story were he to approach it again, and without JNT in his ear, he can put together something a bit more…how should I put it? Oh yes, tender. Tender’s a good word.

Tender is what I’m aiming for with this edit of the 22-minute version of the story, with two minutes cut from the story overall. Out goes any blatant scenes of Eric’s “original the character” Lytton getting up from being stunned by a Dalek blast and escaping (though I do leave in a shot that implies he’s still alive), out goes Davros having an attack of Movellan spunk in his wheelchair, and to truly show how tender we are, let’s keep Tegan on board the TARDIS at the end. Done, and all with tender loving care.

I’m using that word a lot today…must be because I got a compliment from my best friend.

Doctor Who-The Night of The Doctor [Fanedit]

doctor_who_the_night_of_the_doctor_s-336089762-large

 

When circumstances, opinions and preferences force us to give certain passion projects up, one is left with the inevitable feeling we’ve left some work half-done. I’ve felt that way about Doctor Who series 11, opting to only edit a handful of episodes because I feel there’s not much creative avenues required for the rather unremarkable slew of stories, but then there’s the likes of Whoflix, who’d much rather not attempt edits of the Whitaker-not named-David era at all. At least if you want someone to feel you’re missed at work you could show up every now and then.

Ah, but we love Whoflix here at Zaredit, that guy has taught me a lot about perfecting editing and thinking more outside the box, so I’m fine with him letting the Doctor go and finishing all that is left to be salvaged from the ashes of his personal Pompei. As for us? C’mon Ace, we’ve got work to do.

Where was I? What was the subject we were on? Ah, yes, incompleteness, and that brings back around to Whoflix. When all is said and compiled, there may still be one gap in the man’s collection of edits, and that is the Night of the Doctor.

One might think there’s not much you can get out of a six minute short, and you’d be right. It’s hard to subtract even more from it…so why not instead ADD to it?

By adding “The Last Day” as a timey whimey prologue, you can build the escalation of events in the time war up a little more, giving us a taste of just how merciless the Daleks are en route to the Eighth Doctor’s fateful meeting with Cass aboard her spaceship.

How to extend it past even the original running time? Simply rely on the creativity of others and steal from the best! (just remember to give them the proper credit for being immensely more talented than you)

The works of Youtuber Oliver Comet provided the Doctor’s transformation and gradual acceptance of his War Doctor form, Comet even snuck in a brief cameo from Dalton as Rassilon. It’s enough to genuinely frustrate a fellow at the squandered opportunities they had with the realisation of the late John Hurt’s character. If only Big Finish could have spent some money on nabbing Dalton for some stories before Hurt passed on…and we never did get to see a Molloy/Hurt face off at the gates of Elysium either. Perhaps the Nightmare Child still awaits for McGann?

Due to Comet putting his edit together in 4/3, the DVD rips had to be set to that ratio to match, which means FE.org aren’t likely to take it when I write up the IFDB article, which means this is the “renegade edition”, the official version which will listed on the IFDB will not include Comet’s footage.

Doctor Who-Resolution [FANEDIT]

snapshot 1 (08-01-2019 14-06)

The 2019 season of Doctor Who has been and gone, with fans being served only one appetiser all year in the shape of New Year’s Day special “Resolution”. From now ’till 2020, the fans will have to make do with either Big Finish or entertainment by their own means..and that in itself is truly the most exciting prospect of all. Fan Films, Fan Fiction, and Fan Edits await to quench our thirst. It certainly won’t be a dry year.

So to see us into the new year, I’ve cobbled together my first Jodie era DW edit for many weeks “Resolution” was a fine episode with only a few patchy moments, all of which have been glossed over here.

Gone is the opening explaining the Dalek being cut into three and scattered across various locations…a lot of how the Dalek gathers it’s pieces back together is also explained by the Doctor in the TARDIS when she first detects the danger shortly after she and her friends have a gander at the cosmic fireworks.

I’ve also arranged it so  U.N.I.T and it’s indefinite suspension isn’t mentioned at all.

Also out is the extra ending where the Dalek forces the Doctor to take it into the TARDIS. Here, we just resolve the situation with the Microwave saving the day. Also cut is the police officer who comes out to the Dalek. This is mainly to appease the crowd who are greatly angered with the “Bury your Gays” tv trope.

Doctor Who-Victory of the Daleks [Fanedit]

1j65

Another edit revisited…with a lot more experience under my belt, I was able to put this together with a bit more finesse.

For those new to the blog, this is a minimalist 30-minute cut of Victory of the Daleks, Mark Gatiss’ first major script for the Moffat era and the second big letdown of the series one episode after The Beast Below. The signs were all there from the two that trouble was brewing, but fortunately the rest of the series was top notch quality and spared such thoughts from manifesting in most fans’s minds until the mass bungling of the latter half of series six.

Victory of the Daleks biggest crime is the New Dalek Paradigm, aka the Teletubby Dalek Rangers…which I couldn’t remove. If I could, I would, I swear[/George Micheal], so I decided to make do with removing the other big misfire of the story…Bracewell, the Dalek-enginerred scientist who “develops” the gorgeous looking Ironside Daleks (why didn’t Moffat keep them on?)  is revealed to be a living bomb.

What happens next is a truly despicable bit of emotionally manipulative storytelling where the power of love saves the day for the first time in the Moffat era. It’s time consuming filler designed purely to drag out the Daleks’ inevitable escape and nothing more, so off it goes.

Also gone is the ending with Amy’s crack forming just as the TARDIS dematerializes, just to give this episode more of a one-and-done feel.

Do your worst Adolf!
