Python is still revered, Black Adder, Red Dwarf, and all things like that are still loved. But all those are more or less mainstream now.

But only Dr. Who has had been a continual force in geek culture for 50 years.

Except that's not Pippa's ass. No only is it too curvaceous, but you can see a watch on the left wrist of the woman whose ass it is, and in that series of pictures which just about anyone on the net has seen fifty times, Kate is the one wearing a watch, not Pips. Also, Pips has a flat ass.

Carry on!

There already was a movie.

Dr Who is already mainstream in the UK. Several generations of kids have grown up watching it every Saturday evening. Don't forget, until about 10 or 15 years ago in the UK most people had to make do with only 3 or 4 TV channels.

A Harrier? Seriously?
That POS flies in exactly the same way a brick doesn't.
Any conflict with a fixed wing craft made after 1950 and that thing loses.

Sea Harrier vs, F-15s and F-5s

When used within its limits and capabilities , as with all aircraft, the Harries is a good jet and better most.

The latest US Marine Version can now use the AIM-120 and it is also one of the best Night Attack fighters out there.

Funny, Argentina found out the hard way that that wasn't true.

And the US very quickly bought all the ex RAF Harriers when the RAF stopped flying them.
