We completely geek out on (old) Doctor Who

Sigh. I know that this will be of interest to approximately 3 of you out there, but i just can’t help it.

In Pittsburgh, on WQED the PBS broadcasting station, they used to play all those geeky british programs like Monty Python, Blake’s 7 (loved that show) and of course, Dr. Who.

So the other night, when i ran acorss this spoof of Doctor Who, featuring none other than Rowan Atkinson (who is the living definition of moral dilemma. On one hand, he should be shot before he can make any more bloody Mr. Bean crap, on the other hand, The Black Adder pretty much gives him a pass for life.).

This spoof is obviously a bit old. And of course it helps if you’ve seen those old British campy sci-fi shows, which though truly, truly campy, also and rather brilliant and very smart plot and sci-fi elements along with the silliness. Which this spoof just NAILS. (terrible sets, running down the same corridor several times, time travel contrivances, wonderfully campy villians)

So, dork out time. I present here the first 2 bits of a 4 bit Dr. Who spoof. (i thought the first half was good enough. You can easliy find the last 2 on you tube. The last 2 are a bit more steeped in Dr. Who canon.

So, Dr. Who, The Curse Of Fatal Death, Pts. 1 & 2

and you KNOW this MUST be posted in response:

  1. Interesting as the new ones are, it’s hard to replicate the dorky magic of the first several decades of Doctor Who. And Blake’s 7, criminy, that’s for the Level 13 dork. Which is not in any way an insult.

    Speaking of, finally unpacked my D&D dice the other day. Saving throw vs. cat hairballs…FAIL.
