Oh look! Double post, sorta. :)

Please pardon that. :P

Now after spouting all that awesome, I think I better show some exhaust and go explore the starry realms of paying da rent.

Teufelaffe: stonicus: When you don't protect your favorite shows and movies, you end up with Jar Jar Binks...

So you're saying someone should have smothered Lucas in his sleep?


Or perhaps he advocates the "Misery" mode of fan input...


/you gotta wonder... when King was hit by that car a few years back, did he briefly worry someone had taken inspiration?
//the question must have been asked of him, but I don't remember hearing of it

Titanius Anglesmith: ObscureNameHere: I'll just leave this here....

"They could not have been more offended, confused, enraged and startled. . . . There was a moment of stunned silence . . . and then an eruption of angry voices from all over the fifteen-hundred-person audience. The kids in their Luke Skywalker pajamas (cobbled up from older brother's castoff karate gi) and the retarded adults spot-welded into their Darth Vader fright-masks howled with fury. But I stood my ground, there on the lecture platform of the World Science Fiction Convention, and I repeated the words that had sent them into animal hysterics:

'Star Wars is adolescent nonsense; Close Encounters is obscurantist drivel; Star Trek can turn your brains to purée of bat guano; and the greatest science fiction series of all time is Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one or in a bunch to back it up!'"

--Harlan Ellison"

It's tough to agree or even like Ellisons work because he comes across as a total prick.


Didn't he advise that no one should get into writing?

Doctor Who?

Is that the one with the police call boxes that roll around saying stuff like "Dominate?"

Titanius Anglesmith: poot_rootbeer: natas6.0: ug..dr who..really?
I've tried watching the show through the years and different guys playing the character

The character "Dr. Who" has only been played by one guy: Peter Cushing.

Been a fan for decades, and I like to agree with that but...

I do remember the end credits of the 4th Doctor being  Doctor Who - Tom Baker


Yeah, they've always been totally inconsistent with the credits...

I know, I was just pointing out the inconsistency. He's always been 'the Doctor' as far as I'm concerned.

Damn, that's hardcore... I still can't bring myself to watch any more of Hartnell's episodes... I keep buying them all as they come out on DVD, but I don't watch them... I loathe his dottering old cranky douchebag of a Doctor... So, I'd start any such marathon with Troughton, who isn't nearly as annoying, but I still don't start to really like the character until Pertwee (and, of course, Tom Baker is the apex, at least of the classic Doctors, if not period)...

Agreed. One of the best New Whos, and you nailed it.

Titanius Anglesmith: I hope you didn't get the think geek scarf. It's laughably poor. The one that I got at the Who exp in Cardiff was twice the price, but twice as nice.


yes the scarf is from thinkgeek... and for $49 it was worth a try... son likes it... we looked at some of the handmade ones on Etsy... but didn't like the idea of dropping $150 on a scarf... and the who experience in cardiff wasn't on the vacation list last summer... sadly...

Hartnell will be tough to get through. I find him to be a bit too cranky for my tastes, but I'll manage it.
If I do 2 stories a day it'll take about 4 and a half months to get through.

My Doctor is number 7. I was introduced by way of the 4th, but the McCoy stories really sold me. I'd put Baker right up there with the best of all time despite that 7 is my fav.
When I was in England a few months ago I nearly shiat myself when booking a hotel for the London portion of the trip. I got to stay in Perivale :D

So, I was wondering why the Silence wear human style suits.

Then I realized, humans wear Silence style suits in subconscious imitation.

I'll be doing a build blog once we get started. Just finished scaling it down a bit, and just found the right type of Yale lock. The jam jar will be the toughest bit to get, but I have a idea of where and how.

Sofa King Smart: DjangoStonereaver: Apparently, during the Davidson era JNT approached Ellison to write a script for DOCTOR WHO, but the
BBC couldn't afford him.

on a side note... apparently Douglas Adams wrote a storyline for Doctor Who that was never made... they recently published it , my son is a fan of the doctor and I got it for him for Christmas... along with a Tom Baker scarf (all 12 feet of it).


SHADA was partially made, but production was derailed by a technician's strike and never completed (the only episode
of the original series to be abandoned during production).

The BBC has used the footage in various places over the years:  in THE FIVE DOCTORS to make up for the fact that
Tom Baker declined to reprise his role, various recreations of the series that filled in the unfilmed bits with narration, and audio drama, and an unreleased version that filled in the missing episodes with animation similar to what has been
done with some of the older Troughton and Hartnell adventures with missing episodes.

I have the official VHS of the BBC recreation with Tom Baker narrating the action, and I quite like it.  It may be available
on EBay or used on Amazon, and if you're a hardcore Whovian its well worth it if you can get it cheap.

The Wikipedia page is pretty complete

Sweet.  And, according to the "Also Bought" teaser on the bottom, the new release of THE REIGN OF TERROR with
episodes 4 & 5 animated to the original audio track is coming out a month later.

It's one of those occassional cases where I can greatly enjoy someone's work, but feel like given the chance to spend a day with them, I'd actually likely pass. Sometimes a very creative person unfortunately happens to also be a shiathead on a personal level.

/another example being Richard Wagner. I can enjoy the music and operas while thinking the man was an asshole

Milo Minderbinder: How did a Neil Armstrong thread turn into a Dr. Who debate?


My guess is it was the Dr. Who quote in the headline that brought it on.

Milo Minderbinder: If there is a less justified reason for calling someone an asshole then than their opinion on episodic tv, I have not seen it.


I agree with you, but the OP didn't just express his dislike of a TV show, he went after its fans, which is kind of a dick move.

Nah, a Dana Gould bit from years ago about a brainstorming session among the writers NASA hired to write Armstrong's first words. "Look, we're not giving up on 'Holy shiat, the Moon," I just want to hear some other ideas."
