Everything Else

The creators of Into the Dalek were always going to be facing an uphill battle when it came down to delivering a good episode. Directly post-regeneration stories since the series returned have hardly have a great track record, with The Beast Below and arguably New Earth being counted among them. What's more is it was throwing the daleks into the mix extremely early on into this new regeneration, allowing no time for the crew to really get to grips with Peter Capaldi's new incarnation before having him face off against a classic nemesis. To make matters worse, this was going hand in hand with a dynamically new direction and attempting to handle heavy subjects about the Doctor's new persona at the same time.


Things looked bad for this episode, but the end result? This is almost intentionally bad, so horribly put together, that you would be forgiven for thinking there was a Springtime for Hitler going on behind the scenes.


The story here starts with the TARDIS intervening to assist a Combined Galactic Resistance subfighter about to die fighting daleks. With her co-pilot dead and a massive saucer bearing down upon her, she is barely saved at the last second by the Doctor, coffee in hand. After arguing for a few minutes, he eventually returns her to the human held stronghold Aristotle, hiding within an asteroid belt and desperately attempting to survive.

I'm planning on doing a blog dedicated to the BBC show Sherlock which can be found on Netflix. Each blog will be dedicated to each episode. There will be a summary of each episode and my thoughts on it. I've never done blog entries before and I thought it might be fun. There will be spoilers in the episode if you haven't watched it already. I hope to get you into the show... if not... then I hope you had fun reading.

About the show itself:

Each episode is an hour long. Each season (There's three seasons so far) has only three episodes each. While one might say that it should be an easy task to watch all the episodes at once, my advice is to watch one a day because you should never over-indulge yourself (although from a female perspective there's no such thing as too much Benedict Cumberbatch.)

Given the send off Matt Smith was stuck with last time, concerns were rife with this story. Over the past series Steven Moffat was more miss than hit with his scripts, and this episode was to see a few major changes occur within the show and the character we know. Along with taking a darker path, it needed to set up a new dynamic, and alter the relationship between the Doctor and Clara. At the same time it still leave enough time for a great story and enough familiar elements to prevent the audience being thrown off. Thankfully this one was definitely a hit, and while not reaching the high watermark of past stories, it was none the less a solid first outing for the Twelfth Doctor.


Following on from his regeneration on Trenzalore, the Doctor and Clara manage to crash the TARDIS in Victorian London. Despite accidentally ending up inside a dinosaur, they manage to find assistance in the form of Madame Vastra, and yet more danger. Even as the Doctor behaves erratically following his regeneration into a new man, another repeatedly reborn individual walks the city's streets. Determined to find his way to the promised land, he will allow nothing to stand in his way of his ambitions...

Well, you all knew this one was coming.To find the worst written codex in Warhammer 40,000, you have to did pretty damn greedily and deeply not to settle on Codex: Grey Knights. Upon release the book was repeatedly slammed by critics and veterans alike for its poor quality, and it deserved every word it got.

It seems the prayers of Games Workshop's fans may have finally been answered. 


The much criticised writer of Codex: Grey KnightsCodex: Blood Angels and the Fantasy Daemons armybook updated his LinkedIn page to say that no longer working for Games Workshop. According to this, he departed from the company back in May of this year after over a decade of working for the company. While there has been no official announcement from Games Workshop itself relating to his departure, this page does appear to belong to him rather than being a faux account. Many of his skills are endorsed by current and former members of the company, and the image used is not one which can easily be found via a quick Google search.

Truth be told I did not want to do this. 


We've covered a few articles such as this one of late. The BBC's slanderous coverage of Twitch.tv and e-sports, and EA's attempt to deflect blame from itself onto older gamers were uploaded just last month. These are the sorts of articles I only want to do once every several years, when some speech or article really needs to be stripped down and truly analysed to show everything that went wrong. The sorts of ones which are so insulting, so poorly put together and downright blind, it needs to be dissected and taken to bits. Trust Games Workshop to deliver something which eclipses those other two.


Said letter came in the form of 2014's Chairman's Preamble, written by the company's chairman and acting CEO Tom Kirby. Having helmed the company for the last six years, Kirby has been a derisive figure to say the least. While helping to drag the company out of the slump it had fallen into, his tenure saw a never ending crisis of PR disasters, unpopular decisions and relentless price hikes.

After a very long break we're finally getting back to these lists. With proof that the Space Wolves will soon be getting a number of updated units and rumours that Codex: Grey Knights is following close behind (believe me, i'm going to have a field day with that one) it seemed time to really get going again. Unfortunately this is a bit of a difficult one.



Unlike most of the others, I do not have that much experience with the Space Wolves as a chapter. While I have personally kept up with the lore, I have not played or played against Space Wolf lists that frequently, so there is very little I can personally say about changes they need on the tabletop. Reading the book over and over again only brings so much understanding in my case, so there's a chance that a point might miss some vital problem or mislabel something. As such this is going to instead focus upon their lore and what changes that needs.


So, without further ado, here's the top five changes Codex: Space Wolves needs.
