A study in outfits: Doctor Who.
Doctor Who’s Quinquagenary → Doctor Who?
"What’s in a name? Names are just titles. Titles don’t tell you anything." -Tenth Doctor, The Girl in the Fireplace
"You chose yours. The man who makes people better. How sanctimonious is that?" -The Master, The Sound of the Drums
"Look my name, my real name, that is not the point. The name I chose is the Doctor. The name you choose, it’s like a promise you make." -Eleventh Doctor, The Name of the Doctor
The Doctor: Better (and snarkier) than everyone else since 1963.
He has saved your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never stops. He never stays. He never asks to be thanked.
Been a while since I did a Three and Jo cute, no?
The re-colored version of Mind of Evil is now available on DVD.
Doctor Who: The Time Warrior
With five Doctors complete, I can do this homage to the 20th Anniversary special, The Five Doctors!
Sadly Tom Baker didn’t come back for the special, so in homage, here he is in limbo! (and yes, neither did Hartnell since he’d passed away by this time, but I’d like to think it’s him in spirit)
thx for the tip superpsyguy!
So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…
I…. I can’t summarize it just in one sentence…
have a magnificent afternoon people.
seriously, Pat is like a hand puppet and jon pertwee is the ventriloquist xD
OMG IM CRYING
The BBC Doctor Who Blog has an excellent write up to prepare you for this weekend’s episode, Cold War:
The Doctor’s next adventure is called Cold War and it explodes onto screens tomorrow (Saturday). The TARDIS lands on a damaged Russian Submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control, plunging into the ocean depths. An alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice. With tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons on board, it’s not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake! The episode is written by Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, Night Terrors) so we’re assured of scares, great moments of humour and some unexpected twists… All that, plus the return of the Ice Warriors makes this an umissable episode!
The fearsome Martians made their debut in the Second Doctor adventure The Ice Warriors and were an instant hit, returning about a year later in The Seeds of Death. These two stories established the Ice Warriors as a proud but cruel race, ruthless and relentless when pursuing their goal, which in both instances had been the planet Earth.
But interestingly, when they next crossed the Time Lord’s path in the Third Doctor adventure The Curse of Peladon, they had reformed, renouncing their militaristic ways and eschewing violence except in cases of self-defence. The Ice Warriors’ code of honour came to the fore and they even joined forces with their former foe. Their final appearance to date came in 1974’s The Monster of Peladon in which a rogue faction of Ice Warriors threatened the Doctor.
