Doctor Who-The 15th Anniversary Rose Rewatch…And Re-edit! [Fanedit]

Rosespecialedition

Uncertain times, but you can still count on a Doctor to sort you out, and we’re all eager to help spread his or her cheer

Some of those involved with The Doctor’s many adventures, from Steven Moffat, to Chris Chibnall, to Jodie Whitaker, have all done their part to raise spirits and reassure the citizens of planet Earth that darkness never prevails (but you can rely on the miserable ‘not my doctor’ lot to spin Jodie and Chibs’ contributions to suit their vindictive agendas…the souless cretins) . and now it’s the turn of the man who restarted it all, Russel T. Davies, who. in addition to publishing a lost short story written back in 2013, will be live-tweeting today as we are all encouraged to gather ’round our computers and televisions to enjoy the first episode of a renewed tv institution…’Rose’, as Nu Who celebrates it’s 15th year of existence today.

The last decade plus has seen the show go through some shakedowns…RTD’s era had it’s triumphs and letdowns, Moffat had it’s letdowns and triumphs, Chibs has seen letdowns…and further letdowns, though a few bright sparks have come of it (Dawan’s Master is a highlight, and Thraham, whether Chibs is in favour of it or not, seems to be catching on a bit thanks in no small part to my modest efforts), but for a revival to have lasted this long, and in many cases outlast other revivals, is nothing short of remarkable and attests to the staying power of DW’s potential as an outlet for strong and creative ideas.

And it’s such creativity that is presently fuelling the show’s attempts to stay relevant after the Timeless Children revelations proved it’s most supreme test of cultural stability. Fans are as divided as any other human being is over our first and third world problems, not sure whether they should stay loyal, fight for a better product, or not challenge anything and just consume. In a phase of human history where Mother Nature or God has just about had their fill of our behaviour and is testing us like never before, it’s sad to see the show struggle to unite the fans even with the best of intentions.

Still, you’re not here to read about what I think of the fans, or the world, you’re here to watch ‘Rose’ like the rest of us…and so I offer you, as a fan who understands the frustrations of many, a choice

You can either watch ROSE: EIGHT TO NINE, a previous edit I made some years back which sees Paul McGann regenerate into Christopher Eccleston, and enjoy an ending where Nine leaves Rose well behind and heads towards new, forever unseen alternative adventures…

…Or you can sit back, let the world’s problems slip by you, embrace your Nu-Who nostalgia entirely, and let an enhanced special edition re-edit of Rose take you on the trip of a lifetime.

This edit makes use of shots and sequences from the 2005 TV Spot “The Trip of A Lifetime”, the only real changes come just before the shopping mall is destroyed (I inserted shots of The Doctor running away from the ball of flame) and the rest of it makes up the brand new ending.

You can stay at home, you can make chips, or you can come with him, relive your glory days as a fan knowing those days may never come again, or become a fan again

Your choice.

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.

Licence Retained Samples [Fanedit]

BondLR

 

I’ve made some progress on ironing out the creative difficulties in this and am well on my way, so I feel secure in announcing this project

Licence to Kill is one of James Bond’s most under looked glories, a brilliant and gritty glimpse into a rogue 007 using his wits and cunning to slowly and systematically dismantle a drug baron’s empire. It’s a tough ordeal, but Bond pulls through and gets back in Blighty’s good graces, and while it ends on a happy note for Bond, it is bittersweet because the pursuit of Sanchez cost him several friends.

This edit is designed to lessen the cost of LTK, rearranging key scenes and discarding many to create a more optimistic, alternative Bond film. Here, Sharky doesn’t die, and Felix gets his happy ever after. A bit blasphemous of me to lessen the edge off this Bond classic, but I feel there’s enough material in here to still elevate this film to the fine standards fans hold it to.

 

I decided to move up the wedding back to the start and work in a new narrative where Bond missed his appointment in Instabull to attend Leighter’s wedding, and that’s what M is mad with Bond about, not pursuing vengeance.

Here’s what I’ve done with the Bond and M meeting

Another sample

Rearranged a couple of scenes, Sanchez, now free, collects and whips his girfriend, Bond hears about Sanchez escaping at the airport en route to Istanbul, cut to London where M decides Sanchez must be stopped

I’ve trimmed the meeting with Pam to ignore any and all references to Sanchez having Felix’s files, and now they go to Istmus after taking a job offer from Dario, this in now how Bond gets his money.

Doctor Who-Twice Upon A Time 1.5 [Fanedit]

Twice Upon A Time Jodiless Cut

Since releasing the original version, I have since watched a few other edits of this episode and I feel further improvements can be made, some inspired by the other cuts I saw, but I gave the edits my own twist

Changes to version two

-Capaldi and Bradley’s banter greatly reduced, time freezes directly after Twelve says First’s face is all over the place due to holding back regeneration

-Testimony ship now abducts the TARDIS before the ‘male nurses’ dialogue can kick in, this allows us to skip other unnecessary conversations about The Doctor’s guitar and One dismaying that Polly isn’t around to do the cleaning up

-One’s reaction to the sonic sunglasses remains cut.

-Twelve’s “cut out all the jokes” line is cut

-Bill’s reaction to One’s TARDIS is cut

-One’s remarks regarding Bill giving the TARDIS a spring cleaning is cut, helping bridge the transition between One’s missing lines and Twelve interrupting him is the line “I kind of miss it” in regards to Bill missing her travels with The Doctor.

-One’s reactions to having the sonic sunglasses placed on his eyes cut, as is the line “what’s browser history”

-The infamous “made of glass/fairer sex experience” exchange cut.

-Bill and Twelve’s argument minimised as Bill finds The Doctor’s doubts about her amusing. One’s threat of a spanked bottom cut

-Capaldi’s final speech greatly reduced. Soundtrack removed from scene to allow better transitions

-Regeneration occurs, but we cut away to a “TO BE CONTINUED” before we see anything from Thirteen.

-Jodie Whitaker’s credit cut in ending

Doctor Who-Hell Bent [Fanedit]

 

password to view trailer: tardis

The divisive Doctor Who Series Nine finale “Hell Bent” overhauled and repurposed as a tidy 24-minute instalment that does away with The Doctor breaking his no-kill code, man-baiting gender jokes and female general, the diner TARDIS etc, the focus is entirely on The Doctor’s quest for the truth regarding The Hybrid, and making the decision to determine Clara’s fate for her

Superman Returns: Always Around [Fanedit]

Superman Always Around

Cranked this one out over the course of the week. Superman Returns was one of the earliest edits I ever attempted in my cruder amateur days, and now with more experience and a burst of inspiration, I’ve come up with what I hope is a worthwhile edit that helps make the movie more of a highlight reel for the man of steel and what he stands for than some dreary deconstruction

Changes include

-Pre-titles sequence using the scene where Lex raids the fortress
-Scenes rearranged, which includes inserting the last scene of the movie into a much earlier point, meaning Clark is aware right from the outset that Jason is his son. Instead of learning who he is on the boat, we learn it from Clark as he watches Jason in bed at Lois’ home (yes, I retained Stalkerman for narrative purposes), and Lois and Kal’s first meeting is after he visits Jason’s bedroom.-Superman’s return to public service occurs with taking out the bank robber

-Lois’ bitchier moments trimmed and lessened so she comes off as more emotionally conflicted…she’s not mad at Superman, just dissapointed, and often wrestles with publishing a new piece about why the world needs him, it was important to place the scene where she can’t type up that piece before she meets Clark outside her home to demonstrate how conflicted she is on her opinion.

-Lois and Richard laughing at Clark cut

-Lex reading the paper skips over the Superman headline for reasons that’ll become clear as you read this cut list

-Clark and Lois’ rooftop meeting trimmed so the tension is lessened, at least until the moment they almost kiss. Lois is accepting of Clarks’ presence and they go for a flyby.

-Clark’s conversation with Martha moved along to just before he heads over to the Fortress to find the crystals missing

-Film proceeds as normal until Clark is hospitalised. Lois visiting him cut because…

-After Clark awakens, we cut to the new ending…the shuttle rescue

-Flyby over the earth trimmed significantly to properly synchronise with the music after Clark takes off from the stadium. Lois fainting cut.

Doctor Who-Rosa [Fanedit]

RosaThe promised rebuilds of series 11 episodes continues with “ROSA”, now 30% less preachy than the original.

A few ideas I tried out in the original edit have been reinserted into the latest copy, such as James Blake being sent away to Mill Creek. Another idea I had was to try and remove Krasco entirely and make things a pure historical, but I ran into a couple of narrative and continuity issues with that.

So the simplest solution was to just minimise everything, remove as much of the social commentary as possible, while retaining all of the important story beats

CHANGE LIST

-Rosa being denied passage on the bus serves as the pre-title sequence

-Yaz talking to Ryan about the various advances in history that is to come, scene now ends with Ryan reflecting on his nan’s teachings

-The conversation on the afternoon bus trip is omitted

-Ryan Sinclare meeting Rosa’s husband and Martin Luther King. The aftermath is the only thing retained.

-The song played when Rosa is arrested has been removed, and the reprise for the end credits is also gone, replaced by the Doctor Who theme.
