- In 1987, Max Headroom interrupted a Doctor Who broadcast for a spanking - io9
On November 22, 1987, Chicago-area Doctor Who fans experienced a crossover with Max Headroom that would go down in the history books. The only problem? Neither show had signed up for this clash of universes, and Max ended up getting his naked ass smacked on a PBS station....

- Hello Dalek
This one is dedicated to that poor dalek near the beginning of 'The Wedding Of River Song' - I must confess I'd never felt sorry for any dalek before that. Somewhat inspired by the rising hysteria in a panicking dalek's voice which led to a bit of a key mash up in the mix, parts of it rising and falling in thirds and fifths. Percussion courtesy of an older version of the wonderful Tardis 'bong' sound upon landing, also some old BBC Radiophonic bits of backing track snipped in here and there. Enjoy.
- Back to the Shadows
To begin with, I feel I must apologize: As the 11th Doctor recently announced down the camera, he's going into hiding since he has become 'too big', and I have used this as the title for this remix. However, this piece is anything but a quiet mellow ditty. You could interpret it that this piece and it's title harkens back to a day when we had the fresh-faced Peter Davison running around, but I simply took the title because I thought it was quite simply, cool. :P With HardWire's recent submission of Vortex II, I felt inspired to do my own in the Howell Key (i.e. doesn't start on an E) in a similar electric but maintaining some orchestral elements style, and with 3 bass lines thrown in, this was the end result (doing Music Tech at A Level has also taught me a thing or two about recording and post-editing). Bat-eared listeners will also notice a specific sound effect used in this piece. Feel free to kill me for lack of originality. :P Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it

The Krynoid Podcast has The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People: A Review. The UK TV listings magazine The Radio Times describes The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People as "old-school scary Who tempered with touchy-feely modern Who" and that's as good a summary of this two-parter as I've seen.
