QUICK, BEFORE THE ELECTION STARTS!
Billie Piper had a boy. Fandom sort of over that stuff now. But really, well done Billie. Congratulations!
It’s election time everywhere! Well, everywhere except the UK and other places. Still, it’s a game the whole family can play. Speaking of, has anyone checked that thse two aren’t related? The resemblance is uncanny!
”Praise the Company!”
But it’s not all beer and giggles, and so we must observe the international collapse of the squee as David Tennant says he’ll not be ‘teh Doctor forevar’ and puts a shelf life on his time in the TARDIS. Fair enough, you might say. The lad done great, but he has a career to think about. Comes with the role, even. The show is built to withstand such changes. Good luck to him even. But no. And Outpost Gallifrey’s Forum implodes. And – oh, Jon!
“Not a dry eye in the house”? “Sad day”?
Do me a favour…
THE CREDIT CRUNCH HITS WHO-CORNER IN TRADEME.
And it’s tough all over for Troughton annuals. An $80 starting bid draws little interest:
But there’s a bargain to be had ($5 starting bid – no reserve) if you look:
Keep shopping, kids!
DAVE ATTEMPTS TO FIND A YOUTUBE SONG FOR THE 9TH DOCTOR AS CATCHY AS ‘HANDLEBARS’
Last month’s whip-round of YouTube videos bore some fruit…
-and Dean Grey returns, this time to Canary Tower:
LOOKS MIGHTY FAMILIAR? (WITH FREE EARWORM!)
Looking forward though, and to this year’s Chrimbo bonanza. Morrisey! Kirwan! Cyberwraiths! Eh?
We’ve postulated before on the inspiration for these chaps (as seen in the trailer). Taran Wood Beasts gone digital? Zog from the Ultimate Adventure gone gimp? Dave reckons he has the answer. And it’s catchy!
OH, MORGAN… (NO, NOT THAT ONE)
The worlds of Shortland Street and Who converged once more on October 15th, geek-totty staff nurse Morgan’s birthday, don’t you know…
“Hunter feels out of his depth trying to get Morgan a geeky present for her birthday. When Sophie suggests a beauty treatment, Hunter agrees. Later, Hunter sees Gerald’s present, Dalek salt and pepper shakers, and feels he has trumped Gerald’s present. Hunter surprises Morgan with a pampering session with, the Aporé Day Spa. Morgan is privately unimpressed and feels nettled when the beautician criticises her appearance and hard sells her beauty products.
Morgan defends that the products are associated with animal cruelty, and are too expensive. Hunter only hears the ‘too expensive’ part and buys her a pack. Pushed to the limit, Morgan decries the products and pampering session. Hunter is left crestfallen that he has misjudged Morgan.”
Heartwarming stuff. But enough to make you demand Morgan return her geek badge with the on-screen realisation of her present:
“Oh you got me THOSE! Gerald, thankyou!” [she plays with her presents] “Kill! Crush! Destroy!”
Eh? Even a five year old gets the catchphrase right!!! Why so slipshod on the research TVNZ?
You’re not still shamefaced at turning down the new series in 2005 perchance…?
