Doctor Who: Engaging with the Critical Community

Okay, so I've got easily to hand:

- "Timeless Adventures: How Doctor Who Conquered TV"
- "The Unsilent Library: Essays on the Russell T. Davies Era of the New Doctor Who"

And probably a couple of others lurking on a shelf somewhere.

Are there other related works which people might like to recommend? I'm thinking of critical and/or academic work, rather than fan-autobiographies, scripts, shooting notes and the like.

Geek Jokes

A mechanical engineer, chemical engineer, electronic engineer, and software engineer are driving in a car. The car suddenly dies. The mechanical engineer says, "I would suppose that a gear or pulley failed, causing the car to die. The chemical engineer says, "I guess that the car is out of fuel and unable to produce combustion." The electronic engineer says, "I believe the windings in the coil fails to produce enough spark." The software engineer says, "I think we should all get out and then get back in again."

What is your favourite intellectual joke?

One day Jesus is walking along the shores of lake Galilee when he says, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like 3x2 + 8x - 9." A man who had just joined the disciples looked very confused and asked Peter: "What, on Earth, does he mean by that?" Peter replied: "Don't worry - it's just another one of his parabolas."
