This is clever manipulation over real footage. These rides do not exist in real life, but oh man, could you imagine if they did? Just seeing it makes me queasy. Thank you angrynerdyblogger for posting it on the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention. (Video)

Kevin Francis Gray, Art 

Kevin Francis Gray is an Irish sculptor that creates neoclassical inspired pieces that transcend all conventionalisms.

His technique shows a complete dedication to realism in search for a physical perfection that few have achieved. The meticulously crafted figures lay at the cross roads of real and unreal and open a debate about the current definitions of tradition and innovation. Although his choice of materials, the extreme detail and visual references he incorporates in every piece may come across a conventional, this is exactly where the innovative essence lies.

Had Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper not done so well in the first series there wouldn’t be a 10th, 11th or 12th Doctor. Respect the first series and don’t skip it.
