Inspired by some of the changes Whoflix has been making to some of the availible episodes of missing serials, I thought I’d take a stab at Evil of the Daleks Episode 2, merging it with the linking material of Episode 6 of The Wheel In Space
In it’s infancy, this edit was known as “The Moment Has Come” and was released on this blog back in 2015, but the purging of my previous MEGA account lost the product to the tearful rains of time, so I’ve now decided to revisit it with a snappier title and a few improvements to the editing.
The episode now begins with the very unveiling of the “Gallifrey Falls” painting, and the titles follow Matt saying “the day he killed them all”, we have a shortened version of the RTD era Doctor Who theme, and then back to the museum for most of the story.
I decided to hold back from the War Doctor’s introduction scene until the time came for him to meet The Moment and fetch the Fez, luckily, there’s a perfect moment to bridge from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors meeting to that scene as soon as Ten says “so where did it go?” when inquiring about the Fez. Very lucky to have had that scene there.
The destruction of Gallifrey originally came about in my first edit as soon as Clara found the War Doctor had vanished from the chair. Here we get to see the War Doctor actually trigger the big red button that leads to the obliteration of the planet.
Most of the story is the same, I opted to also omit any scene with the painting of Elizabeth and Ten getting smashed in by the Zygons for reasons that become quite clear at the end. I was never really satisfied with how Whoflix ended his Tennant cut, and thought it needed a better closing shot than just his TARDIS materializing. So I spared the painting of Elizabeth and The Doctor from destruction so we can have a quick pan over to it one more time.
Nice tits Hartnell.
Well, something cheif among Sidney Newman’s final requests for the show has come to pass [another desire was retro generation, we’ll cover that eventually in my lifetime too I’m sure…probably once Tennant runs out of lucky dimes over in Duckberg], congratulation to Jodi Whittiker as she takes a man’s key and inserts it into her hole to spread her legs across the milky way.
…What do you mean that came out wrong?
Anyhoo, don’t think of this edit as a part of my series ten revisited series, I already have an altogether different plan for the finale of that particular series…no, no this is strictly some quick fun I opted to have with the series ten finale.
Since it aired, I have always felt the ideal opportunity was to have had Capaldi make a surprise exit in ”The Doctor Falls”..why should he rehash the resistance to change when Eleven assured us that we must always keep moving and never forget who we were? Capaldi spending sixty minutes moaning about it fresh off us eating our Christmas dinner may not be what happens, but it’ll form part of it, and I think that’s such a shame…better to go out in a blaze of grace
A lot of the edits you’ll see here will show up in my revisited version, but not all of them, and the first and latter halves is pretty much note for note unaltered aside from a couple of nips and tucks to join the episodes up, and of course, a very special ending.
I need to go back to the kitchen now…and Jodi needs to go back to the TARDIS…and towards the future.
We’re a week late with this, but believe me, it was a doozy trying to make it work with what was left of the episode after using some of it for other entries in this series. The first version I had made use of several deleted scenes, but I realized some of the scenes cut off abruptly [in fact, the one I kept still does] and didn’t make for a very satisfactory finale, so a lot of what I didn’t like about Knock Knock had to be kept in to pad everything out, that includes, sadly, the fact everyone comes back to life at the end.
Other than the deleted scene I wound up keeping and the new pre titles sequence, there isn’t anything all too radical about this one I’m afraid, and I still haven’t been quite able to make it forty five minutes, so you’ll have to settle for it being ten minutes shorter
Next Friday we’ll be meeting a chap called Friday and the Empress of Mars
Had so many ideas for this I couldn’t just wait for the DVDs
-Titles now come at the close of The Doctor’s speech about the TARDIS acronym meaning “life”
-Episode proceeds as normal until Bill enters The TARDIS. We skip her lines abou t needing the toilet and The Doctor directing her to one, cut from The Doctor’s “gateway to everything” speech to their arrival at the Vault
-Cut The Doctor and Bill in Australia, take them to the alien planet immediatly
-End the episode on Bill’s remark that her tears may not be hers. Cut The Doctor trying to mindwipe her.
-Coming Soon trailer should be a mix of the episode’s version and the original Time For Heroes trailer
And here we are, my edit of Day of the Moon, my final edit of 2016, and there will be plenty more to come in 2017, I can assure you.
Aside from the changes you’ll have seen already in the sample, I cut out stuff pertaining to Canton being gone for “days” after being inside the prison (in reality, hanging out with The Doctor and chums) and ended the episode right after Canton and Nixon having the conversation about Canton’s choice of fiance.
I fully intend to get around to the first half of this story in a much more wibbly-wobbly way soon, and I may just make it the first edit of 2017. Stay tuned.
Well, it’s been a while since I posted a sample of anything, but I think this fits the bill
For fun, I’ve been trying to put together a more coherant, 33-minute trim of the second half of Doctor Who’s sixth series premiere, “Day of the Moon”, just to see if that ridiculous chase Canton embarks on for the first five or so minutes could be removed without mucking up the plot too much. I even framed the title sequence to begin as soon as the “previously ends” with Amy freaking out over shooting Melody

This shall not be the last fanedit you see from me before the year’s out. Besides the full version of this, I also intend to post my edit of The God Complex
