Today is the first day of the Doctor Who World Tour, it’s a chance for fans and the press to get to meet Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat, and talk over what is about to happen in Season Eight, including the world premiere of the first episode, “Deep Breath.”
To celebrate the occasion, which began in Cardiff earlier today, and to prepare London travelers for the imminent arrival of the new season on August 23, Transport For London have devoted one of their passenger information boards in the Underground to a very familiar image indeed. [x]
And it’s not the first time!
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS SCENE
OK, so this scene wasn’t originally scripted. RTD added it into the script based on Bernard Cribbins’ experience of the war.
Bernard Cribbins fought in World War Two
Bernard Cribbins never killed a man
And Bernard Cribbins is incredibly proud of that.
Today I was on a walk in the countryside when all of a sudden I spotted something familiar in the distance…
As I began to get closer and closer it was getting bigger and bigger..
AND THEN I WAS STOOD IN FRONT OF A MASSIVE DALEK MADE OUT OF STRAW AND METAL IN THIS RANDOM FIELD I WAS EXPLORING
WELCOME TO FUCKING BRITAIN EVERYONE!
Steven Moffat’s dismissive attitude toward women somehow seems to help his career.
this article is so so important please read it
holy shit, though. wow.
OH.MY.GOD. it has EVERY QUOTE. WITH A LINK. this article must’ve been burning in this writer’s mind for ages…well done.
True story: when I initially pitched this article, my editor thought I was joking and squelched it, and I went back and screamed at him a lot until he understood there is NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT THE RAGE-INDUCING EFFECTS OF STEVEN MOFFAT and let me write it, haha.
(Also, since a lot of people have been questioning the veracity of the quotes, I just want to say that everything in “” in the article is a word-for-word quote that comes from either a video/radio or print interview by Moffat, or a tweet from his now-deleted twitter, or a line one of his characters says. Every other link is tied to arguments about the narratives of his series, so yes, it’s all as verified as we could possibly make it.)
DOCTOR WHO PARODY BY THE HILLYWOOD SHOW HAS ARRIVED!
It’s the DOCTOR WHO musical parody you’ve been waiting for! Join The Tenth Doctor, an alien Time Lord who travels through time and space in his TARDIS, in an eye-catching parody that’s out of this universe. People assume that a parody is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big video of wibbly-wobbly, Time Warp stuff. Like the TARDIS, The Hillywood Show® makes a production that’s bigger on the inside and showcases David Tennant’s beloved Doctor in a memorable way. Allons-y!
Watch, reblog and share with fellow Whovians!
If you haven’t seen it yet, this Doctor Who parody by The Hillywood Show is everything a Whovian could ask for, we’ve watched it at least 20 times already.
