Yeah, well, I prefer spaghetti straight off the tree. Gotta watch out for drop bears when you get it, though... ;)

While we're talking about funny things, how's about the funniest line from Revenge of the Cybermen, one of the lesser Cybermen stories of all time? Say it with me...

HARRY SULLIVAN IS AN IMBECIIIIILLLLE!!!

I thought they were widely available on Gallifrey?

Is that the one that also had Bernard Cribbens? The Doctor also refers to himself as "Doctor Who", though I couldn't remember if he done that in the classic series.

I guess he didn't then.


On another note, having tasted rabbit, I'd take the cheese. Given the choice though, I'd prefer the haggis. Having to catch it first is good exercise.

No, that was Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. (based on the 1st Doctor TV serial The Dalek Invasion of Earth). :) The male 'companion' in the film Doctor Who and the Daleks was played by Roy Castle (called Ian Chesterton the same as in the TV serial it was based on).

Yes, he was generally called 'the Doctor' in the classic series. There was a William Hartnell serial called The War Machines where an intelligent computer named WOTAN called him 'Doctor Who' for some unknown reason, but that was all. :D

There are also other times when the Doctor hints at referring himself as Doctor Who. In The Highlanders, he calls himself Doctor von Wer (Doctor of Who) in order to fool a group of Redcoats into thinking he is a German ally. And in The Underwater Menace, he signs a note to Professor Zaroff "Dr W", as seen in this telesnap from the otherwise missing episode.

Ah! :) I must get round to investigating more of the 'mostly missing' stories. I think I've seen all the complete stories, but it is possible that I fell asleep* during The Ribos Operation and didn't finish watching it. :lol: I should probably watch it again to find out... :D

There was a funny bit in one of the Big Finish audio adventures (The Kingmaker) where the 5th Doctor is being pursued by a robot from a publishing company which calls him 'Doctor Who'. The Doctor explains that this is due to a typographical error. The 4th Doctor had written the (real world) Doctor Who Discovers educational books while working with UNIT (Doctor Who Discovers: Strange and Mysterious Creatures, Doctor Who Discovers: Early Man and others).

Apparently the series was meant to be named The Doctor, Who Discovers.... :lol:

* I was quite pleased with myself for managing to accidentally fall asleep during The Awakening but I finished watching that when I woke up. :D

I quite enjoyed that one. :) I don't think it'll be one I'll be re-watching many times though. But I thought it was a nice episode.

I'm looking forward to next week's episode. All the more so since I'll be in Brisbane at the time. I'll have to tape the repeat on the next night, too, as I have to tape Downton Abbey for my mother (we can't change the channel for the taping, unfortunately).

Anyway, Cold War. Return of the Ice Warriors. Or at least one.



Jury's still out on the sonic beam effect (only see it for a split-second in the trailer), and is it me, or does the Ice Warrior sound like Dr Claw from Inspector Gadget? :|

Odd.

You lot seem to prefer this week's offering over the series opener last week, yet almost to a man/woman, the reaction on the BBC boards has been that this week's was dismal.

I have to admit, the music really got on my tits.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Some of us are easily pleased. :D

Personally, I cherish each episode and would rather find some good in it that ruin it by tearing it apart. besides, there was a brief bit in this week's episode that was filmed across the road from me. ;)
