Synopsis

Once, long ago, in a land of monsters and corridors, a fair maiden was captured, and placed in a deep sleep.

She was used to being captured, and she had a hero who rescued her on just such occasions. But this time the hero never came.

And the fair maiden slept on.

Eventually, a King rescued the maiden, and made her his bride, which many wise old women might tell you is just another way of capturing fair maidens.

And still the fair maiden slept on.

Then, the hero had another stab at rescuing the maiden from her prison, but he was too late. And, more importantly, he had forgotten the rules of fairy tales.

He didn’t slay the dragon.

(Anyone purchasing this story from the Big Finish site will be able to download the original Extras track on MP3, which is 8 minutes longer than the version on the CD which had to be cut down just to fit onto the disc)

Synopsis

When the Doctor defeated the Dalek Time Controller and its Time Lord ally, the timelines shifted and events changed... but the danger is far from over. And new threats to the continued safety of the universe are emerging.

Molly O'Sullivan carried on with her life as a nursing assistant in World War One. She probably thought she would never see the Doctor in his 'Tardy-box' again...

From the Dalek occupied planet Nixyce VII through Earth's history and to the very edge of the universe, the Doctor's footprints across eternity are being tracked by foes old and new. But when did it all begin and when will it end? Living his life through the complexities of time travel, the Doctor can never be quite sure if he's experiencing his life in the most helpful order. The only certainty appears to be the advance of the powers of evil and the oncoming threat of a fight to the death against forces that would destroy everything the Doctor holds dear.

 

Part 1: The Traitor
by Nicholas Briggs


Nixyce VII is under Dalek occupation. For many, their only hope of survival is decent medical care, as slave working conditions under the Dalek regime are appalling. But when you help people to survive under the rule of the Daleks, are you actually helping the Daleks? Med-tech Liv Chenka doesn't have the luxury of pondering these dilemmas. She must just do what she feels is right.

But then there are the soldiers of last resort... The freedom fighters left behind to cause maximum damage to the Dalek war effort, at whatever cost. To them, anyone who seems to be helping the Daleks is a traitor.

And when the Doctor arrives, his secret agenda throws him into conflict with everyone.


Part 2: The White Room
by Alan Barnes


Molly O'Sullivan is still trying to help people, but now she is back in London, staying in Baker Street.

But there are dangerous forces abroad. Where are the young deserters disappearing to? Who are the Huntsmen? And what is really going on at the Blackwell Convalescent Home?

Perhaps the mysterious 'Surgeon General' has the answers. To find out, the Doctor must tackle an old and baffling enemy.


Part 3: Time's Horizon
by Matt Fitton


The Doctor and Molly find themselves at the very edge of creation. But something dangerous seems to be heading back into the known universe from the very end of time.

The crew of the cryo-ship Orpheus, including its medical officer Liv Chenka, have their mission parameters to adhere to; but the arrival of the Doctor and Molly changes everything. An ancient and terrible force is on a collision course with them all and the outcome seems to be a matter of divine destiny.


Part 4: Eyes of the Master
by Matt Fitton


The Doctor, Liv and Molly arrive back on Earth in the 1970s to investigate the Ides Institute. The timelines have shifted since the Doctor and Molly first travelled here and all is not as it was. Dr Sally Armstrong is still working for the Ides, but her associate has a devastating plan in mind.

Soon, Molly's 'dark eyes' prove to be at the centre of a plot to seize control of all life in the universe.

Synopsis

The Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara land on the planet Hydra, where Admiral Jonas Kaan leads a vast flotilla of ships trying to elude the vicious race that has invaded and occupied their world. But his ships are being picked off one by one, vessels and crews dragged underwater by an unseen foe.

The time travellers find themselves pitched into battle against the Voord, the ruthless enemy they last encountered on the planet Marinus. As they take the fight to the very heart of the territory now controlled by the Voord the stakes get higher. First they lose the TARDIS... then they lose that which they hold most dear. And that's only the start of their troubles.

In the capital, Predora City, they will learn the truth of what it means to be a Voord. And that truth is horrifying.

On the jungle planet Garros, Earth Forces Knight Commander-in-Chief Greg Saraton and his team are hunting gigantic beasts, for sport. When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they are caught up in a web of intrigue where there is no clear friend or foe.

What is Saraton’s vital connection with Earth’s Solar System’s Defence Shield? Why are the giant reptilian birds of Garros attacking? What terrible secret lurks deep within the trees?

Before the truth can be revealed, a heavy price will be extracted and loyalties will be tested to the limit.

TDP 428: Dark Water

#TinDogPodcast #DarkWater #DoctorWho #Podcast #Review

 

reprinted from wiki

 

Dark Water" is the eleventh episode of the eighth series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who. The episode was written byshowrunner and head writer Steven Moffat and is the first of a two-part story; the concluding episode is "Death in Heaven", the finale of the eighth series. It was first broadcast on BBC One on 1 November 2014.

In the episode, Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson) is killed, and finds himself in the Nethersphere. As the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) try to find Danny, they find themselves in a facility that accommodates Cybermen, run by recurring character Missy (Michelle Gomez). In the episode's climax, Missy reveals her true identity as the Master.

 

 

Plot[edit]

Clara is talking over her phone to Danny, fully ready to admit she has been travelling with the Doctor and that she loves Danny, when the other end goes silent. A stranger picks up and sadly informs Clara that Danny got hit by a passing car and has died. She struggles with his death for days, refusing to let her emotions go and decides to call on the Doctor to make him change the past. Without telling him her plans, she suggests they go to an active volcano, and then secretly collects all seven of the TARDIS keys and after the TARDIS is in motion, strikes him with a sleep-inducing patch. When they land and the Doctor wakes up, she throws the keys one by one into the lava - the only way to destroy them - unless the Doctor takes her back to save Danny, despite knowing it would create a time paradox. The Doctor soon reveals this was just a dream state - the patch not working on him and instead had used it on Clara - to learn why she was upset, and to see how far she was willing to go. He offers, as a friend, to see if they can find Danny in the afterlife, and has Clara use the telepathic interface of the TARDIS to centre on Danny.

They land in a strange mausoleum which holds several tanks of human skeletons under water. They are greeted by Missy, who introduces herself as an android receptionist, and are taken to Dr Chang, one of the scientists in the facility. The Doctor asks about the oddness of the skeletons not drifting apart, and Dr Chang reveals that they are submerged in a substance called dark water, which only allows organic material to be seen, and that the bodies are encased in a support exoskeleton. The Doctor remains curious about the facility, and Dr Chang explains how it was based on the discovery of the voices of the recently deceased in the white noise in broadcast signals; the Doctor remains doubtful of this.

At the same time, Danny has regained consciousness in a spartan office and greeted by Seb, who reveals he is in the Nethersphere - a giant city enclosed within a sphere. Seb explains Danny has died, and helps him to get used to the new space, noting that he is still tied to the state of his body - likely being kept in a refrigerated morgue as he constantly feels cold. As part of this, Seb has arranged a meeting between Danny and a young boy that he had accidentally killed while he was a soldier, and while Danny tearfully tries to offer his apologies, the boy refuses and runs off. As Seb and Danny are talking, Seb then receives a notice that Clara is trying to contact Danny, who does not know that Clara has travelled to the Nethersphere. The Doctor leaves with Dr. Chang to investigate the facility further while Clara takes the call, asking a number of questions to try to assure that she is really speaking to Danny. Clara says she will do anything to be with him, and, wanting her to live out her life while believing that he is dead, Danny presses Clara to end the call. Seb then offers him the option to delete all his emotions.

Meanwhile, as the Doctor and Dr Chang return to the tanks, Missy has instructed the skeletons inside to rise and starts the process to drain the tanks. She is caught as the Doctor and Dr Chang enter, and Dr Chang reveals that Missy is the supervisor of the place, rather than a receptionist. Disappointed with Chang, Missy then kills him with a handheld device. As the tanks start to drain, the skeletons are revealed to be those of Cybermen. Missy points to a spherical device situated in the middle of the area and names that as the Nethersphere, revealed to be a Gallifreyan memory storage system knownMatrix. Missy explains that the consciousness of the deceased are stored and held to be inserted into new Cybermen soldiers after having their emotions deleted. The Doctor frantically questions Missy's identity, coming to realise she is aTime Lady possessing two hearts, which he had first recognized when they had come into contact earlier. As the tanks finally drain and open, the Doctor races out of the facility, only to discover that it is situated in the middle of contemporary London, inside St Paul's Cathedral. The Doctor tries to warn away civilians but Missy calls out the Doctor's actions as the ravings of a lunatic. The Doctor begs her to tell him who she is; she reveals that "Missy" is short for "the Mistress", as, in her current form, she could not call herself the Master. The episode ends as the Cybermen begin to march on London, Clara trapped in Dr Chang's lab with another Cyberman, and Danny about to activate the deletion of his emotions when he sees the young boy he killed in the reflection.

Continuity[edit]

The episode identifies the series-long theme involving Missy, typically who has only been shown at the ends of past episodes and interacting with characters that have just died and arriving in the Nethersphere, such as the Half-Face Man from "Deep Breath"; this is the first episode where the Doctor, Clara, and Missy interact directly.

Production[edit]

The read through for "Dark Water" took place on 12 June 2014. Filming began soon afterwards, on 16 June 2014. Locations for the episode included CardiffPontypool and St. Paul's Cathedral.[1] When filming the episode's climax, Capaldi and Gomez mouthed their lines—recorded later using automated dialogue replacement—to hide the reveal from all spectators of the filming.[2]

Broadcast and reception[edit]

Preview release[edit]

"Dark Water" has scenes removed from the DVD previews that were sent to reviewers, and a media blackout has been imposed on any plot details that were not released by the BBC or Steven Moffat. One notable scene removed by the BBC is the revelation of Missy's identity.[3]

Reception[edit]

Overnight viewing figures were estimated at 5.27 million.[4]

The episode received highly positive reviews from critics. Michael Hogan of The Telegraph gave it five stars out of five and called it a "bone-rattling and suitably spooky fare". He praised the source of everyday fears such as death for the horror and was praised the performances of Capaldi, Coleman, Anderson and Gomez.[5] Neela Debnath of The Independent said that the episode was "sad, funny, scary, romantic" and "is everything you could ask for from a Doctor Who finale the day after Halloween."[6] Richard Edwards of SFX gave the episode four and a half stars out of five, claiming "...in a series of great Capaldi performances, this is one of the best". He praised the opening premise and the big reveal at the end and also commented on its allusions to Second Doctor stories, The Tomb of the Cybermen and The Invasion.[7]

Matt Risley on IGN praised the episode for its "tense and traumatic dose of Who", but was critical of the lack of action, which usually went hand-in-hand with the Cybermen. Overall, he rated the first part of the finale an 8.4.[8] Alaisdair Wilkins on the AV Club gave the episode a B rating, claiming that "Dark Water could be a good episode, or it could be a terrible one", indicating that it was only the first half of the story.[9]

Synopsis

On the Isle of Wight, a colony of survivors wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Before long, the triffids, thought safely out of the way on the mainland, attack... In John Wyndham’s classic bestseller The Day of the Triffids the world has been overwhelmed by killer plants. As the novel ends, Wyndham’s narrator scientist Bill Masen is escaping, with his wife and four-year-old son, to the Isle of Wight where a small colony of survivors is holding out. Simon Clark’s sequel picks up the story twenty-five years on.

The survivors are safe, for the time being at least, on their island, where they have continued efforts to combat the triffids, while also striving in various ways to build a new civilization. Elsewhere in the world, similar colonies cling to survival, while the triffids persist in their attempts to destroy humanity.

One morning Bill Masen’s son, David, now grown up, wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Now, the triffids have an advantage over humanity.

Synopsis

The Point of Stillness. A place the Time Lords are forbidden to go. It cannot be drawn, it cannot be whispered, it cannot be thought. And yet somebody is very keen to reach it.

Deep within the TARDIS, something unusual is happening. One of the ship's oldest secrets is about to be revealed, and once it is, nothing will ever be the same again.

As danger materialises deep within the ship, spectral strangers lurk in the corridors and bizarre events flood the rooms, someone long-forgotten is ready to reappear. The Doctor and Leela are soon to discover that their home isn't quite the safe stronghold they thought.

Flatland - Free Epub book

#doctorwho #flatline #epub

reprinted from wiki

 

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square",[1] the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.[2]

Several films have been made from the story, including the feature film Flatland(2007). Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and the short films Flatland: The Movie (2007) andFlatland 2: Sphereland starring Martin Sheen and Kristen Bell.[3]

 

 

Plot[edit]

 
Illustration of a simple house in Flatland.

The story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides. The narrator is a square, a member of the caste of gentlemen and professionals, who guides the readers through some of the implications of life in two dimensions. The Square dreams about a visit to a one-dimensional world (Lineland) inhabited by "lustrous points", and attempts to convince the realm's monarch of a second dimension; but is unable to do so. He is himself visited by a three-dimensional sphere, which he cannot comprehend until he sees Spaceland (a tridimensional world) for himself. This Sphere visits Flatland at the turn of each millennium to introduce a new apostle to the idea of a third dimension in the hopes of eventually educating the population of Flatland. From the safety of Spaceland, they are able to observe the leaders of Flatland secretly acknowledging the existence of the sphere and prescribing the silencing of anyone found preaching the truth of Spaceland and the third dimension. After this proclamation is made, many witnesses are massacred or imprisoned (according to caste).

After the Square's mind is opened to new dimensions, he tries to convince the Sphere of the theoretical possibility of the existence of a fourth (and fifth, and sixth ...) spatial dimension; but the Sphere returns his student to Flatland in disgrace.

The Square then has a dream in which the Sphere visits him again, this time to introduce him to Pointland, whereof the point (sole inhabitant, monarch, and universe in one) perceives any communication as a thought originating in his own mind (cf.Solipsism):

'You see,' said my Teacher, 'how little your words have done. So far as the Monarch understands them at all, he accepts them as his own – for he cannot conceive of any other except himself – and plumes himself upon the variety of Its Thought as an instance of creative Power. Let us leave this God of Pointland to the ignorant fruition of his omnipresence and omniscience: nothing that you or I can do can rescue him from his self-satisfaction.'[4]

— the Sphere

The Square recognizes the identity of the ignorance of the monarchs of Pointland and Lineland with his own (and the Sphere's) previous ignorance of the existence of higher dimensions. Once returned to Flatland, the Square cannot convince anyone of Spaceland's existence, especially after official decrees are announced that anyone preaching the existence of three dimensions will be imprisoned (or executed, depending on caste). Eventually the Square himself is imprisoned for just this reason.

Social elements[edit]

Men are portrayed as polygons whose social status is determined by their regularity and the number of their sides, with a Circle considered the "perfect" shape. On the other hand, females consist only of lines and are required by law to sound a "peace-cry" as they walk, lest she be mistaken face-to-face for a point. The Square evinces accounts of cases where women have accidentally or deliberately stabbed men to death, as evidence of the need for separate doors for women and men in buildings.

In the world of Flatland, classes are distinguished by the "Art of Hearing", the "Art of Feeling", and the "Art of Sight Recognition". Classes can be distinguished by the sound of one's voice, but the lower classes have more developed vocal organs, enabling them to feign the voice of a polygon or even a circle. Feeling, practised by the lower classes and women, determines the configuration of a person by feeling one of its angles. The "Art of Sight Recognition", practised by the upper classes, is aided by "Fog", which allows an observer to determine the depth of an object. With this, polygons with sharp angles relative to the observer will fade more rapidly than polygons with more gradual angles. Colour of any kind is banned in Flatland after Isosceles workers painted themselves to impersonate noble Polygons. The Square describes these events, and the ensuing class war at length.

The population of Flatland can "evolve" through the "Law of Nature", which states: "a male child shall have one more side than his father, so that each generation shall rise (as a rule) one step in the scale of development and nobility. Thus the son of a Square is a Pentagon, the son of a Pentagon, a Hexagon; and so on".

This rule is not the case when dealing with isosceles triangles (Soldiers and Workmen) with only two congruent sides. The smallest angle of an isosceles triangle gains thirty arc minutes (half a degree) each generation. Additionally, the rule does not seem to apply to many-sided polygons. For example, the sons of several hundred-sided polygons will often develop fifty or more sides more than their parents. Furthermore, the angle of an isosceles triangle or the number of sides of a (regular) polygon may be altered during life by deeds or surgical adjustments.

An equilateral Triangle is a member of the craftsman class. Squares and Pentagons are the "gentlemen" class, as doctors, lawyers, and other professions. Hexagons are the lowest rank of nobility, all the way up to (near) circles, who make up the priest class. The higher-order polygons have much less of a chance of producing sons, preventing Flatland from being overcrowded with noblemen.

Regular polygons were considered in isolation until chapter seven of the book when the issue of irregularity, or physical deformity, became considered. In a two dimensional world a regular polygon can be identified by a single angle and/or vertex. In order to maintain social cohesion, irregularity is to be abhorred, with moral irregularity and criminality cited, "by some" (in the book), as inevitable additional deformities, a sentiment with which the Square concurs. If the error of deviation is above a stated amount, the irregular polygon faces euthanasia; if below, he becomes the lowest rank of civil servant. An irregular polygon is not destroyed at birth, but allowed to develop to see if the irregularity can be “cured” or reduced. If the deformity remains, the irregular is “painlessly and mercifully consumed”.[5]

As a social satire[edit]

In Flatland Abbott describes a society rigidly divided into classes. Social ascent is the main aspiration of its inhabitants, apparently granted to everyone but strictly controlled by the top of the hierarchy. Freedom is despised and the laws are cruel. Innovators are imprisoned or suppressed. Members of lower classes who are intellectually valuable, and potential leaders of riots, are either killed, or promoted to the higher classes. Every attempt for change is considered dangerous and harmful. This world, as ours, is not prepared to receive 'Revelations from another world'.

The satirical part is mainly concentrated in the first part of the book, 'This World', which describes Flatland. The main points of interest are the Victorian concept on women's roles in the society and in the class-based hierarchy of men.[6]

Abbott has been accused of misogyny due to his portrait of women in 'Flatland'. In his Preface to the Second and Revised Edition, 1884, he answers such critics by stating that the Square:

was writing as a Historian, he has identified himself (perhaps too closely) with the views generally adopted by Flatland and (as he has been informed) even by Spaceland, Historians; in whose pages (until very recent times) the destinies of Women and of the masses of mankind have seldom been deemed worthy of mention and never of careful consideration.

—the Editor

Critical reception[edit]

Although Flatland was not ignored when it was published,[7] it did not obtain a great success. In the entry on Edwin Abbott in the Dictionary of National BiographyFlatland is not even mentioned.[2]

The book was discovered again after Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity was published, which introduced the concept of a fourth dimension. Flatland was mentioned in a letter entitled "Euclid, Newton and Einstein" published in Nature on February 12, 1920. In this letter Abbott is depicted, in a sense, as a prophet due to his intuition of the importance of time to explain certain phenomena:[2][8]

Some thirty or more years ago a little jeu d'esprit was written by Dr. Edwin Abbott entitled Flatland. At the time of its publication it did not attract as much attention as it deserved... If there is motion of our three-dimensional space relative to the fourth dimension, all the changes we experience and assign to the flow of time will be due simply to this movement, the whole of the future as well as the past always existing in the fourth dimension. —from a "Letter to the Editor" by William Garnett. in Nature on February 12, 1920.

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography now contains a reference to Flatland.

Editions in print[edit]

Adaptations and parodies[edit]

Numerous imitations or sequels to Flatland have been written, and multiple other works have alluded to it. Examples include:

In film[edit]

Flatland (1965), an animated short film based on the novella, was directed by Eric Martin and based on an idea by John Hubley.[9][10][11]

Flatland (2007), a 98-minute animated independent feature film version directed by Ladd Ehlinger Jr,[12] updates the satire from Victorian England to the modern-day United States.[12]

In literature[edit]

An Episode on Flatland: Or How a Plain Folk Discovered the Third Dimension by Charles Howard Hinton (1907), Spherelandby Dionys Burger (1965), The Planiverse by A. K. Dewdney (1984), Flatterland by Ian Stewart (2001), and Spaceland by Rudy Rucker (2002). Short stories inspired by Flatland include "The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics" by Norton Juster (1963), "The Incredible Umbrella" by Marvin Kaye (1980), and "Message Found in a Copy of Flatland" by Rudy Rucker (1983)

Physicists and science popularizers Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking have both commented on and postulated about the effects of Flatland. Sagan recreates the thought experiment as a set-up to discussing the possibilities of higher dimensions of the physical universe in both the book and television series Cosmos,[18] whereas Dr. Hawking notes the impossibility of life in two-dimensional space, as any inhabitants would necessarily be unable to digest their own food.[19]

In television[edit]

Flatland features prominently in The Big Bang Theory episode "The Psychic Vortex",[20] when Sheldon Cooper declares it one of his favorite imaginary places to visit.[21]

It also features in the Futurama episode "2-D Blacktop", when Professor Farnsworth's adventures in drag racing lead to a foray of drifting in and out of inter-dimensional spaces.[22]
