Seriously, guys, if anyone of you is thinking about trying out the Eighth Doctor audio stories from Big Finish but you’re still unsure about all of this:
If you’re still not convinced somehow you can get the mini-audio Living Legend with Eight and Charley for free.
This particular offer will last til Monday.
I almost feel bad about advertising this b/c it really is a steal!
the most bullshit phrase ever conceived is ‘time lords have a strict non-interference policy’
i’ve seen people object to the petname “babe” because it’s in that vein of weird pet names that sorta belittle the person youre calling them but for me it’s not like i mean to compare someone to a baby. i mean to compare you to the best and bravest pig who ever lived. a true hero. if i had words to make a day for you, i’d sing you a morning golden and true

"Spot of bother with these Faerie chappies" is the Briggiest Brigism I’ve heard in a while.
I have a physics textbook from before it was discovered that the flow of electrons makes electricity and they just sound so frustrated it’s hilarious
i know its supposed to be like social list but did anyone think this through
Without a doubt the most overlooked aspect of Time Lord culture is their use of crazy straws:
#but Narvin being mad about something and angrily drinks from one of these#romana not being able to use them without laughing from her time with the doctor#Leela not using them because Leela#brax not using it because he’s a sophisticated little shit#k9 commenting that a straight straw would be more efficient (presidentromanadvoratrelundar)
'absolute goose' is my favourite insult because there is literally no way that can be construed as anything but negative
Companion sketch #31: Edwardian adventuress Charlotte “Charley” Pollard, plus Ramsay the Vortisaur.
Charley’s costume is the same one designed by the great Cliff Robinson for the promotional art of the Big Finish story “Absolution”.
The Armageddon Factor part 1

That’s it. That’s season 16.
YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS. YOU HAVE NO POWERS. YOU HAVE NO DEFENCE. YOU ARE NOW INSIDE THE CUBE.
Something Inside made me think I was supposed to dislike it (it’s not a very good story, is it?), and indeed, a lot of reviews say it’s terrible, so… I… I should hate it too, right? RIGHT?
Except I don’t. At all. Because all I could think about was OH MY GOD THIS IS DOCTOR WHO MEETS CUBE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
The “Cube” in this episode is not designed to be as lethal as the one from Cube, and since it’s clearly a prison with wardens watching over it, the existential horror of the first two movies is completely lost – it’s closer to Cube Zero (that’s why I used visuals from that one for these drawings). But I don’t even care. It’s still two of my favorite things colliding.
do you ever have a plan for the day and suddenly it’s 4pm and you’ve achieved literally nothing
I believe Douglas Adams and John Lloyd came up with a word for this feeling.
For those that are now looking for another solid source for all your Classic Who needs since the lord Greendude33 has been reduced to three episodes, www.doctorwhomedia.co.uk is a fine place to now go. The site is a work in progress and I haven’t done an official assessment of what exactly it’s got, but from the looks of it, they’ve got all or most Classic Who stories (although newly found Web of Fear episodes I know aren’t up, and some Pertwee stories are in b/w). And the creator is even working on putting up the show’s entirety, including SJA and I think Torchwood (???).
