Doctor Who's Flying Tardis [Mar. 5th, 2008|09:08 am]
Douglas Spencer
I have an appointment with the dentist, too early to do anything useful beforehand but late enough that I'm awake well before I have to leave the house.

Therefore I'm wasting time beforehand by watching "Doctor Who and the Mutants" (Third Doctor, Jo Grant), and specifically the opening moments of the first episode which feature a native of Solos, the planet where the action is set -- and the scene reminds me of the opening moments of another television programme entirely.

Am I the only person who expects him to approach the camera and say "It's..."?

The Four Doctors: "We were so poor, we didn't have flying Daleks, they had to roll about the set on wheels. I say "set", it were just a bit of wobbly cardboard. But it were a set to us!"

"They useter come behind sofa and exterminate the lot of us. You tell that to kids today, and they won't believe you."

What? Lots of planets have a Yorkshire.

I wrote a pub quiz once, I think it was for a ZZ9 AGM, where one of the questions was "which of the following is not the name of a BBC TV Doctor Who Story -- The Two Doctors, The Three Doctors, The Four Doctors, The Five Doctors"
