Doctor Who series 10: The Eaters Of Light geeky spots and Easter eggs

Pete Dillon-Trenchard Jun 17, 2017

Doctor Who series 10 episode 10 is The Eaters Of Light. And we've been digging into it right here...

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve waited for 54 years for Doctor Who to explain why crows sound like they do, so now that they’ve finally tackled that important issue it’s time for our weekly round-up of callbacks, similarities and generally interesting things taken from this week’s episode. And as ever, if you’re sitting thinking ‘How can he have missed that?!’ (the answer is usually ‘ineptitude’), leave it down in the comments below…

17 Action Figures/Cartoons From The 1980s That Could Be Awesome Movies

Hollywood always seems to be looking for the next big lucrative film franchise. Studios have looked at several existing properties in hopes of finding their big meal ticket, and some of those properties include classic action figure toy lines and cartoon series from the 1980s. We’ve already seen films for G.I. Joe, Transformers, He-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a few others, but there are a helluva lot more out there that would make for some great movies!

I’ve put together a list of several different action figure and cartoon properties that I would love to see adapted for the big screen. Most of the properties on this list are ones I loved as a kid, and it would be so cool to see them brought to life in a way we've never seen before. I briefly talk about each franchise on the list and give a

12 1980s Toys You Might Not Remember

Not long ago, I put together a list of 15 toys from the 1990s that you may have forgotten about. I decided to go back in time a little further and find some from the 1980s that you may not remember or maybe never even heard of. I grew up in the '80s and some of my favorite toys consisted of G.I. Joe, He-Man, Transformers, and more. You can read through 12 of my favorites right here. While I was doing some research on these toys, there were some things that I completely forgot about! It was so great to be able to unlock some of those memories that I hadn't thought about in years. It was seriously like going back in time, and now I want to buy back my childhood in the form of toys!

Hollywood! Adapt This: Centurions

Well, folks, the Hollywood adaptation train keeps rolling.  The latest addition to the ranks is a possible feature production of the short-lived series Manimal, about a doctor who moonlights as a crime fighter and can morph into different animals.  They've yet to take my advice and greenlight a movie adaptation of Gargoyles, The Pirates of Dark Water or Jonny Quest, but we'll press on in the hopes that studios come to their senses.  Today we'll reach back into the bag of obscurity and pull out a mid-80s cartoon series from production company Ruby-Spears and Japanese animation studio, Sunrise.  A series that could easily (and most entertainingly) be adapted by director Michael Bay, as I teased last week.  Hit the jump for man and machine, power extreme. Hollywood! Adapt this: Centurions!  While Centurions is an obscure reference even in my circle of friends (save one, who has a Doc Terror
