Tonight, the Doctor and company take to the high seas, where it's always night (for budgetary reasons, I think). Pirates and Sirens and a slightly confused Doctor follow.

Republibot 3.0's picture

Elisabeth Sladen has died. She was 63.

She was best known for playing "Sarah Jane Smith" on Doctor Who, and on various Who spinoffs. Arguably the most enduringly popular companion, she starred alongside the Third and Fourth doctors, staying on the cast for an uncommonly long four years. She also had her own failed spinoff in the early 80s,, and a prominent role in "The Five Doctors" 20th anniversary special, and a very successful spinoff over the last four years.

How Many Lives Does Doctor Who Have Again?

Republibot 3.0's picture

Ask any geek worth his salt how many regenerations The Doctor has, and they'll answer "Placiba i Grymu! Trimpson Grondage ree! Nomu popu bebobesrellalobba!" As any English-speaking geek worth his salt that same question and he'll say "Which doctor do you mean? McCoy? The Holographic Doctor from Voyager? Flox? What's this 'regeneration' thing you're talking about?" Ask any English-speaking geek who's worth his salt, and doesn't just *think* he is like those Trek people, and he'll say "Thirteen lives, twelve regenerations. Next question?"

POSSIBLE MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING:

THE FOLLOWING BLOG ENTRY CONTAINS CRAZY, WILD-EYED, SLEEP-DEPRIVED, COLD-MEDICINE-ADDLED SPECULATION ABOUT DOCTOR WHO AND THE UNIQUE AND WORLD-SHATTERINGLY IMPORTANT ROLE RIVER SONG PLAYS IN IT. IT'S POORLY FORMATTED, THE GRAMMAR IS PRETTY BAD, IT WAS PRETTY OBVIOUSLY WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FREEBASING CAFFEINE (me), AND IT MAY SIMPLY BE AN EPIC CASE OF FANWANKERY ON SAID CAFFEINE-ABUSER'S PART.

PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

EPISODE REVIEW: Doctor Who: "A Christmas Carol"

sysadmin 2.0's picture

 

The new(ish) BBC tradition of airing a Christmas themed Doctor Who episode has now arrived in the U.S. For the first time, BBC-A is showing the special on the same day as BBC-1. I was a bit unsure about the 'Christmas Carol' theme- it's been done to death- but as usual, the Doctor Who staff pulls off a wonderfully paced and acted episode

Spoilers, Hooooo!

JULIAN BANE: My pleasure.

REPUBLIBOT: For those who haven't seen it yet, "Alternate Empire" is a kind of conceptual mashup between Doctor Who's "Whoniverse" and the Star Wars universe as well. Where did the inspiration for this come from?
