Mitchell: Part 4
It has been a long journey with regards to the Episode Breakdowns. Three years in fact, and it’s nice in a way to see them at an end. They are by far the longest articles in any Issue, and take anything up to 12 hours to complete. From transcripts broken down, action added, and the entire article shortened from 20 pages down to between 7 – 10, so it’s no wonder I tend to leave it till the last possible moment.
We have new ideas for the next issues, although it may take some time to put them into action, so perhaps the next few will be more reviews and hopefully some great interviews.
Moving house can certainly take its toll on your creativity and it’s taking me a fair bit of time to get back into my stride. Eight weeks in and I’m still nowhere near finishing the painting or stripping of wallpaper, and it doesn’t help that nobody can mind the Weevil while I do this. We’ve had a few offers of help now and then, but when it comes down to it, Gwen would much rather watch Rhys’ socks dry than come and touch up the glossing. And I did offer her as much beer as she could drink!
This month sees a lot of Who reviews from Jeff and Tony. Mitchell is back for Part 4, and Jack has a visit from an old friend.
If you like what we do, then please, please comment below our articles, we’d love to hear from you. And even if there are things in the articles you don’t agree with, I know you’re sure to apply the fingers to the keyboard and post up a few comments.
