I'm usually a purist, but with "Day of the Daleks" final episode, I always default to the re-imagined version.
The new effects & scenes filmed for the final battle are really good!

I'm on "Genesis of the Daleks" for my lockdown marathon...

Cheers!

And the Dalek voices really make a big difference. The only Special Editions I really like are this and Fenric.

Enjoy Genesis... I'm loving my watchthrough; can't believe I've never done it before. And I loved the Loose Cannon reconstructions. I'd never watched any before, so that was a whole set of new stories for me.

Just back from Metebelis III; nothing to report.20200508_115713_20200509085342426.jpg

On the old light switch there's a commemorative plaque which was presented to the previous owner.

I was in a slight quandry whether to retain it or not. But I thought it was nicer to add to my box's history rather than overwrite it. So I decided to retain the plaque but to include something of my own.

Though I certainly don't have any of the skills I see here on TARDIS Builders, I'm quite creative. I used to have a home studio and composed and recorded a lot of songs and music. And about twenty years ago I wrote and illustrated a couple of books. I presented Tom Baker with a copy of the first novel and that is how he came to ask for my autograph. He was just being kind and indulgent, but I'm still over the moon about it.

Anyway, I needed an emblem for my endeavours and simplified one of my drawings of a wee monster, the Jam Jar Lurker.

That then became my user name and avatar for most things online. At the same time I ordered a St John Ambulance badge, I got a Jam Jar Lurker sign to mirror it on the inside.

Today was the first substantial rainfall since I finished sealing and coating my TARDIS. Hence the images above. Indeed, I don't think it's stopped raining the entire day. And, as it happens, I have a leak. There's a small puddle on the floor directly below the lamp. I'm a novice, but I'm going out on a limb and suggesting the lamp is leaking. I'm not sure yet if it's where I've attached it to the roof or in the lamp structure itself. Hopefully I can get it sorted soon.

I feel another pun coming on.

Welcome to the outdoor TARDIS club.  Today I shaved a couple mushrooms off the base of mine. 

I have hidden house key, in case I lock myself out.  But it is actually a bit like a videogame quest.  I have (had) a TARDIS key hidden in the yard.  A key to the garage is hidden inside the TARDIS.  Inside the garage I've hidden a key to the house. 

The problem with this is that a crow or squirrel or something apparently found (and stole) the hidden TARDIS key. 

Today I was hoping maybe I moved it at some point (although at least once I found it laying in the grass a few feet from its hiding spot, indicating external interference).  No key.  But a couple wonderful mushrooms sprouting from a crack in the paint in the base.  :( 

I also found carpenter ants inside, but that's another story.

Zarbi? Maybe they just want to renovate to save you the bother. Like the elves and the shoemaker?

Our TARDIS has regenerated. While TARDIS Builders was down I met a talented chap on Instagram called @the__tardisman who created the image for this custom backdrop using his virtual model of the 11th Doctor's console room.20200718_234112.jpg
