Doctor Who-The Doctor Falls: Redacted [Fanedit]

The Doctor Falls-Redacted

RIP Doctor Who: 1963-2017 is a statement I do not agree with on any level.
While it is arguable the show is presently going through it’s most polarising and divisive era in many years, heightened by sensationalist Youtube channels more concerned with negativity-for-clicks ad revenue than open-minded journalism, there are still the occasional flashes of brilliance still there, and I do not hate Chris Chibnall or Jodie Whitaker’s performance as The Doctor.

That being said, when people say Doctor Who should have ended with series ten, or with Twice Upon A Time, I often wonder just how that can be achieved without

A. Permanently ending the series (some might openly prefer a Survival-type ending)
B. Ending the series on a cliffhanger that leads into a far worse episode

A couple of days ago,  I eventually put the possibilities into practice…and this is the result.

Not wanting to repeat myself with my two-in-one combo of “World Enough and Time” (which still ends on the Jodie regeneration), I opted to tackle just the second half of the series ten finale, as it’s the one that required the most changes.

Gone are any early signs of regeneration, and The Doctor sets off the final cataclysmic explosion a little earlier, the idea is to convey that it is Bill’s girlfriend Heather than helps to heal The Doctor (as she says she can rearrange atoms however the person likes and manages to unconvert Bill…who says she can’t mend Time Lords?), and offers Bill a trip across the stars. Bill chooses to return to Earth with The Doctor where they eat chips and ‘mourn’ the loss of Missy (using flashback footage from ‘World Enough and Time’)
No Jodie regeneration, none of Capaldi kicking up a fuss over not wanting to change again, no First Doctor meeting. Just Capaldi and Pearl camping out among the stars, another adventure behind them…and the adventures continue

Star Trek Voyager: Timeless-Finale Edition [Fanedit]

 

Voyager

With this one, I found myself in a quandary.

 

An old idea from about ten years ago, I always wanted to turn the 100th episode “Timeless” into a series finale using footage from “Endgame” (boy is that title overused), but the footage I intended to use, the ’10th anniversary’ news footage of Voyager returning and flying over San Francisco, had a narrator saying they’d spent twenty-three years in the Alpha Quadrant, and that this was the tenth anniversary of their return, the news feed is cut off by an elderly Janeway who looks out towards the evening sky lost in thought and it fades to the titles.

Now, it had been my intention for this to be the ending to my Timeless edit, but I would first have to work around the narrator giving me a specific timeline, so what I’m thinking of doing is to trim down the narrative to avoid mentioning the years…however, without an indicator there’s been a passage of time in the report, we don’t know why Janeway looks older.

I don’t know, maybe this won’t annoy people as much as it’s bugging me, but I always intend my edits to make sense somewhat.

Another alternative would be to leave most of Timeless alone and just add the first scene of Endgame part I at the very end as a bittersweet ending, that it does still take Voyager two decades to return to the Alpha Quadrant, and I can leave the news piece narration intact and still end it on an elderly Janeway.

Ultimately, I chose to go with my original vision.

X-Men: Dead Phoenix [Fanedit]

X Men Dead Phoenix

Months back, clickbait merchants and rumour mongers were keen to share news that there would be some kind of Deadpool connection in the ill-fated Dark Phoenix movie. While this somewhat manifested a year earlier in Deadpool 2 with the X-Men’s cameo in that film, there was no surprise cameo from Wade for this.

So while binging both movies I worked out a way of integrating several choice scenes from Deadpool 2 into a cut of Dark Phoenix that gives the movie not just something that brings two well received X-Film franchises together (and yes, the fact both of these films have the same initials in their titles doesn’t escape me), but also provides closure to the series that doesn’t corrupt the timeline the way the original version of Dark Phoenix did, and also sets up a hypothetical fifth film in the First Class timeline to show the saga of the X-Men really ought to have continued.

Two other minor tweeks aside, I left the rest of the movie alone

Cut List

-Added FANEDIT.ORG Logo to beginning

-Cut the ‘X-Women’ lines from Raven

-Integrated the Deadpool and Colossus scene from Deadpool 2 where the X-Men narrowly avoid being seen by Wade

-Just after we meet the aliens , I Integrated the scene where Colossus tries to persuade Wade into joining the team on a mission, with Wade saying bad things will happen, this leads directly into the scene the X-Men first confront Jean and Raven is killed

-End credits feature a very special performance of Celine Dion’s ‘Ashes’ from Deadpool 2

-Deadpool uses Cable’s time device to change history and undo the events of the film.

-Post-credits is Cable time-jumping from the future to the present to set that part up. The saga continues

Men In Black: International Incident [Fanedit]

MIB International Incident

It’s new year where I’m at, so time for a new edit

The current draft of this edit is 1 hour, 23 minutes (plus credits) and includes no mention of the mole sub plot, now the weapon is kept from everyone because of M’s inexperience as an agent, and she learns to trust MIB only at the end (this stems from her childhood when she kept the alien safe), I also removed any scenes with her as a civilian and we’re introduced to her as an adult when she is recruited into MIB. The flashback with her as a child is retained of course.

Hemsworth’s character is a lot different, his bungling has been scaled back quite a bit, now he’s more of an egotist who got lucky that one time he saved the world from the Hive, and needs to prove himself. Liam Neeson is now merely a long-suffering mentor who’s faith in H is tested, and then has his fears quashed the more the mission goes on. Lastly, there is a brand new ending that still involves the flying car (the scene where they first use it, in the original cut they’re on their way to stop T, but in this edit they’re using it for yet another mission)

-Film opens with SONY HOME ENTERTAINMENT Logo, and end credits repurposed as opening credits
-Molly’s childhood retained
-Main title card comes after she helps the alien escape
-Flash forward to T and H’s mission together against the Hive
-Molly’s civilian life and failed job interviews cut completly
-Molly discovering MIB completely cut, we next see her already accepted as a recruit
-Agents M’s attempts to become Agent H’s back-up for his mission goes a lot smoother
-Agent H mucking about with his shirt outside the nightclub cut
-The alien friend of H no longer wants to seduce Agent M
-H and M arguing in the nightclub cut
-Alien poisoned by dagger retained
-Alien telling M that H has changed cut
-References to something being wrong in MIB cut.
-Meeting in High T’s office trimmed to remove references to the mole within MIB
-Agent H and M no longer discuss the mole when analysing the poison
-More minor mentions of M being told not to let the weapon fall into MIB hands and the mole cut, the edit indicates Molly has trust issues with the london branch per Emma Thompson telling her there was a problem in London (this could mean anything though)
-M and H’s early arguments in the desert trimmed
-High T’s heel turn and final battle completly cut
-First scene with the updated flying car repurposed as the final scene
-Only one minor tweek to the end credits, the use of Will Smith’s “Just Cruising”

Sherlock-The Reichenbach Fall: The Sherlolly Cut [Fanedit]

SherlollyMerry Christmas faithful fans.

Over time, I’ve come to look down a little on series three and four of BBC’s Sherlock, even if they are the basis for three very well-received edits of mine (Little That Remains, Adventure of Cam, and The Lies of Sherlock), they, to me, feel like the encore performance of an exhausted choir who have played all of their big hits and probably should have packed up and headed home by now.

Taking a few things here and there from “The Empty Hearse” I have created “The Reichenbach Fall: The Bollocks Edition”, or, for anyone who likes to romanticise, The Sherlolly Cut, where I’ve made Anderson’s theory at the beginning of Empty Hearse the climax to this story,  and thus canonising Sherlock and Molly, with Sherlock hanging out with her in exile, the edit ends with Sherlock looking to get back into the game after two years of laying low, he wants Molly to help him, Molly wants dinner…and we leave it there. The end. Toss seasons three and four aside, and go down with this ‘ship!

Doctor Who: Trial of a Time Lord-Alternative Part Thirteen [Fanedit]

Alternate Part Fourteen

 

I know I posted an “alternative part fourteen” to Trial of a Time Lord earlier in the month on here (since deleted), but I wasn’t satisfied at all with how it turned out so it’s back in the workshop. In the meantime, here’s an alternative part thirteen, with all references to Peri surviving removed, as well as the revelation the Valeyard is a manifestation of the Doctor’s darker side…now he’s simply a future incarnation of The Doctor

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.
