Doctor Mork!

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, Series 11 continues to nosedive with the reveal of what The Vagina Doctor will be wearing…

Her outfit looks bloody awful. We’re back to the days when the Doctor and his companions didn’t wear proper clothes but “designed” outfits. Yes folks, it’s back to the Eighties with Chris Chibnall, the new John Nathan-Turner. I thought they might at least have had the sense to put her in a Sarah Jane Adventures waistcoat, boots and jeans ensemble. But no. Instead we get some crap faux Tennant long coat, a Mork and Mindy t-shirt & braces and some half-mast trousers. It looks like the sort of pretentious crapola you see on a catwalk. And it won’t be very practical when she’s out filming on location, freezing her tits off.

Doctor Who has become Doctor Mork!

As is to be expected, a new Showrunner means a new TARDIS prop, and Chibnall’s looks as flawed as the show it’ll soon be featuring in. Why is the Pull To Open handle on the wrong side for a start? And what have they done to the lamp at the top? It looks like the base of the Eccles/Tennant sonic. Meh. Okay, so it’s got the black door panel where the phone would be, something we haven’t seen since The Seeds of Doom, but why change the box anyway? What was so wrong with the Capaldi one? Seems like a pointless expense and no doubt the new TARDIS interior will be just as bad…

Not that I’ll be watching, ‘cos I won’t. Twice Upon A Time will be the end in more ways than one, and from here on in Whopix will be a Jodie Shittaker Free Zone…

Costume Conundrum Solved!

Remember how the Fourth Doctor’s costume suddenly went from THIS outfit

dr who costume change 1

at the end of The Horns of Nimon to THIS outfit

dr who costume change 2

at the start of The Leisure Hive

with NO on screen explanation?

The answer has been hiding in plain site all this time, and it doesn’t involve a comic strip trip to the planet Kolpasha…

There are numerous instances where it’s pretty obv that the Doctor’s adventures don’t always happen to him in the order in which they are transmitted to us. Like twice in the McCoy era, for instance.

Take Season Seventeen for example…

doctor who season seventeen wrong order

… it’s in the wrong order. Which is to say that the transmission order of the stories isn’t the chronological order in which they happened for the Doctor and Romana.

But this is…

doctor who season seventeen correct order

There’s no continuity between the individual stories, unlike Season Eighteen, so after Destiny of the Daleks they can go in any order you like. And if they’re ordered like they are above, then the Doctor getting Mandrell’d provides the perfect excuse for Romana to take him shopping for a new outfit…

Is Bill O’Reilly a Dr Who Fan???

If you were watching the March 25th edition of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, during the “Is It Legal?” segment with Kimberley Guilfoyle, you would have seen Bill O’Reilly use a mobile phone to illustrate one of the items in the piece….

Bill O'Reilly Fox News Dr Who Tardis Phone 1

Bill O'Reilly Fox News Dr Who Tardis Phone 2

So, who would ever have thought they would ever see Bill O’Reilly holding a Tardis-backed phone? Surely it can’t be his phone? Can it?

Maybe he borrowed it from Craig Ferguson…

 

You can see the Tardis phone clip from The Factor on YouTube HERE

The Underwater Menace on BitTorrent

doctor who bittorrent

Given the recent announcement that a bundle of News Series eps will soon be available on BitTorrent, and given that BBC Worldwide, in the latest DWM [issue 485]  are saying:

“We would like to reassure everyone that we are currently reviewing the best way to bring fans more classic Doctor Who. Please bear with us – we’ll let you know more as soon as we can.”

Whopix is going to stick it’s neck out and say that the story won’t be out on DVD at all, instead it’ll only be available as a BitTorrent download. Which is pretty shite really, since all we’ll end up doing is burning the bloody thing to a disc ourselves anyway!

Who is Dr Skarosa?

Dark Water. 43m 49s. Clara spots the Cyberman. But wait a minute…

Dr Skarosa

Okay, the Master becoming a woman, fair enough, that particular bit of gender-bending has been on the cards for a while now [stand by for all sorts of Cosplay of varying quality] but Dr Skarosa? Come on Moffat, enough already. You know what fans are like and what they’ll make of something like that. Naughty, naughty.

BBC Proms is Canon!

Amongst all the other things to look out for in Dark Water, here’s one you may have missed. When Clara is phoning Danny, in amongst all the post-it notes is this:

hyperspace bodyswap ticket dark water

That is a, or maybe the, Hyperscape Bodyswap Ticket that Smiffy & Clara used to get into the 2013 BBC Proms!

Hyperspace Bodyswap Ticket Dr Who Prom 2013

So, does that mean the BBC Proms are now Canon?

Kasterborous should be ashamed

WARNING – MILD SPOILERS FOLLOW!!!

Steven Sotloff gets beheaded by the barabarian Islamonazis of IS and some bloke at the BBC thinks, hmm maybe that beheading scene in the next ep of Dr Who should go? I mean, it’s still going to be fresh in people’s minds by Saturday and maybe people seeing the Sheriff of Nottingham getting his head cut off by Robin Hood might paint the picture of what happened to Sotloff a little too vividly. And beheading in real life is a pretty gruesome, messy business. Might be deemed a bit insensitive to transmit that so soon afterwards, and we did the same thing with the TV Movie after Dunblane. Let’s have a word with Moffat and Gaytits and see what they think. After all it’s their ep and they wrote and filmed it months before all this IS stuff happened.

Then someone else says, who gets beheaded? And why is there a beheading scene in Dr Who anyway? Well, says the first bloke, the Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin are having a swordfight, as people in these sorts of things always do, it’s all very Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone, and the Doctor and Clara sneak up behind the Sheriff and throw a blanket over his head, then Robin cuts his head off and we discover that the Sheriff of Nottingham is actually a robot! Oh, says the second bloke, I see. Then the headless body grabs Clara, Robin throws the Sheriff his head back, the Sheriff reunites his head with his body and then the Sheriff and Robin carry on with the swordfight.  So we could cut it out and just join the two halves together, it would still work.

Of course, there will be some fans who will complain about the ep being cut at all, they’ll probably be “incandescent with rage”, like that twat Christian Cawley over at Kasterborous. Oh hold on a minute… apparently a granny has her head cut off in Edmonton. Really? Yeah, Palmira Silva, she was 82. Yuck. That’s a bit gruesome isn’t it? Maybe we should cut that beheading scene after all. It would certainly be extremely tasteless to broadcast it now, wouldn’t it. I mean, I know Dr Who’s a fantasy and all but putting that image out, so soon after two beheadings that have been in the news, that would be insensitive, tasteless and just plain wrong. And we can always reinstate it on the DVD. Yeah, on balance I think you’re right.  You would have to be an extremely insensitive, tasteless twat with no sensitivity whatsoever to put it out now…. yeah, let’s speak to Moffat and Gaytits and see what they think. What about Crawley and people like him? They’ll be upset. Fuck him, it’s only a tv show and three people have been murdered by the same method depicted in an upcoming episode of Dr Who. That’s not censorship, that’s called good taste, something Cawley clearly lacks. Should be ashamed of himself, he’ll probably try to use it to get himself some publicity on Facebook. Best not get into a spat with him though, that’s slightly undignified and he seems to have cornered the market in that. Best thing is to tell him to his face that he’s being a complete twat, then ignore him and his website from now on. Arsehole.

The SNP and The Yeti

Given that The End of The World Is Nigh, or at least the end of the UK as we know it, does anyone know why there would be an SNP poster on a London Underground platform in The Web of Fear??? Do the Yeti vote SNP?

Surely The Great Intelligence isn’t a Scottish Nationalist?

Alex Salmond certainly can’t be The Great Intelligence…

I wear a waistcoat now…

…waistcoats are cool!

[or “vests” if you’re American]

When Twelvy unveiled his cossie, the most alarming item in his new wardrobe was the Grandad Cardie. Whatever else they are, cardigans are not cool!

But if you look at some of the recent photos from filming, you’ll notice that the cardi gets ditched in favour of a waistcoat –

– which Whopix reckons is an altogether better look. However, Twelvy clearly has a fashion relapse later on, if this pic is anything to go by…

No wonder Twelvy looks grumpier than usual, so would I if I had to wear that bloody thing! Yuk!
