I started watching the new Shada disc last night. It's not episodic just a single 136 min film.

What's that all about? Ended up turning it off after four chapters as it was too late for something two hours plus.

It does look rather splendid though.

Has anyone seen the Doctor Terrible's House of Horrible episode titled Frenzy of Tongs?

Supposedly a spoof of Fu Manchu and Hammer films like Terror of the Tongs, i thought it more influenced by the Doctor Who story Talons of Weng-Chiang than anything else with scenes practically lifted from it.

From street signs such as Talon Street and Mark Gatiss evil criminal Hang Man Chang to wandering in the sewers discovering giant mutations and even the Janis thorn attack in the streets.

I don't remember seeing that episode when it first aired so i'm probably slow out of the blocks with the Who references.
