Are The Sea Devils Returning to Doctor Who

SeaDevil-ThirdDoctor

Steven Moffat seems to love to bring back classic monster. In the past we have seen the Silurians, Ice Warriors and the Zygons. Another one that he would love to bring back are the Sea Devils. First introduced in 1972 when Jon Pertwee was the Third Doctor in a story titled”The Sea Devils”. Moffat had this to say about them and other foes from Doctor Who’s past:

“The classic monster I always look at bringing back are the Sea Devils, the design of them is amazing, they are beautiful and bizarre. I haven’t thought of anything to do with them yet. But I think they’re quite extraordinary in their conception.” “I have a very long list of monsters to bring back , you know. As well as the Sea Devils I do have a couple of others in my mind, but I might be doing those so I’m not telling you what they are!”

So is there a chance that we may see the Sea Devils and other older foes coming up against Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor.

I hope so. How about you?

Movie Monday: SINGULARITY

At first glance this is a very simply story of machine against man. Once you the film is done it is exactly that. The short is well done from a visually aspect but there is no substance story wise. The direction by Samuel Jorgensen shows that the man has a talent for action films.

Check it out if you love all action and no story.

Mockingbird Solo Book

Marvel has announced that Bobbi Morse -AKA: Mockingbird will get her own on going series. Mockingbird has seen a resurgence recently in both in comics and also the small screen. The series will be written by Chelsea Cain, with art by Kate Niemczyk.

Recently as part of the 50th anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D., Mockingbird received a solo one-shot. The issue was received well enough for Marvel to greenlight an ongoing series.

“Until [the S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL: MOCKINGBIRD] one-shot she’d never had her own book—and even the one-shot was part of the 50th Anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D. thing. She’s been really underserved by the Marvel Universe. She’s always appeared in other people’s stories, serving their narratives.  So I love the idea of giving her a chance to be the center of a story and to really have some agency.

I’m drawn to Bobbi because she’s a terrific character—she’s brainy and cool and confident, and quick with a quip,” she enthuses. “In fact it turns out we have a few traits in common. We’re not big sharers. We’re control freaks. And we’ve both been married to Clint Barton.  I mean, what are the odds?”

Comments from Chelesa Cain about Mockingbird

Cain also commented that the first arc of the series will focus on Bobbi’s medical history, the lingering effects of the Super Soldier Serum and also the Infinity Formula.  Cain also has plans to spotlight the “super hero clinic’ where Bobbi receives her weekly checkups.

The first issue of Mockingbird is set for 2016

 The market maybe ready for another attempt to bring back this show. Everyone is getting in on the the superhero, reboot or update old properties craze.  Star Trek was just announced yesterday and with this announcement of The Greatest American Hero now, how many more shows will be dug up and giving the attempt at a new life?
It maybe fun to see ‘The Greatest American Hero’ again. The show was original and fun and also all we had back in 1981 for superheros on TV.
