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

There was a moment as they looked at each other. The Doctor spread his hands as if he was about to embrace [the Brigadier] or some other such nonsense. So the Brigadier straightened his back. ‘Ah, Doctor,’ he said. ‘There you are at last. Spot of bother with these Faerie chappies. Good of you to help us out.’ The Doctor stared at him in utter astonishment. Then he leapt forward and hugged the Brigadier anyway, laughing as he spun him round and round. ‘Stop,’ muttered the Brigadier, trying not to be hugged. ‘Stop it at once, Doctor. The men are watching.’

"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

'absolute goose' is my favourite insult because there is literally no way that can be construed as anything but negative

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.

New Site for Classic Who

morbius-strip:

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 (???).
