TimeLord Tuesday – RTD had Homos, now Moffat loves Lesbians, Dalek Flash Mobs for Gally? and Your Phone is now Bigger on the Insideearthdaughter | July 4, 2012
Despite the order suggested by the title of this week’s TimeLord Tuesday, I will acquiesce to the spoiler-haters and stick the lesbians at the end of this article. Skipping over them simply doesn’t work…you always want to peek – especially with a title like this one. So why did I list it first? Seriously, you didn’t click on this link to read another tired old witticism like “Your Phone is now Bigger on the Inside” did you?
Big Finish does the Big Update
OMG, has this been a lifetime in coming. Thank you guys at Big Finish for FINALLY updating your website! It’s so much slicker-looking now and easier to get to what you want to see. Instead of cringing that I’ll have to wade through pages of audio listings trying to find that cool Doctor Who audio someone told me I as a 5th Doctor fan have to hear, I can actually search it up without all those insane search errors that kept plaguing your database for, like, FOREEVER!
Congrats, Nick and company and next time, hit me up for your website rebuild and maintenance contract. I’ll be happy to do it for say, oh, a lifetime subscription to your awesometastic DW audio range.
Hi…Who are you again?
One of our tweets made it to the Doctor Who photosite fancite. I didn’t even know you guys existed. AWESOME! If you Whoverts just don’t get enough Doctor Who pics from your friends, go join them at http://fancite.com/topic/doctor-who .
Your Phone is now Bigger on the Inside
Okay all you beautiful River Song lovers, I’ll toss that stupid title into the air like a much-hated fez and you take aim. Seriously, sometime after spying my tweeted pic on the Doctor Who photosite fancite, I spied the ‘droid app of my friggin’ dreams – WhoNews. Holy Crap! I HAD TO HAVE THIS!!! You developers rocked my Whoverted little world like a glitch in time, like TimeCrash, like hugging Peter Davison in the green room at Gallifrey in 2011. Okay, well maybe not exactly like that, but you get the idea I’m excited about it, right?
I latched onto it like mom’s teat when I was a breast-feeding infant. I didn’t care if it costs a mere, $1.96. I was shocked to see only 50 Whoverts had downloaded this 5-star rated app. What, are you all iPhone whores?!? Where are the ‘droid-packing Who Fans for crissake??? I mean, read its review, “WhoNews brings you the latest news from all your favourite Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures websites in one easy to use application on your Android phone.
News is collated from over 120 sites including news, blogs, podcasts and special fan content. A resilient server compiles the latest news every 15 minutes ready to be downloaded by WhoNews.
Using the same news server as the hugely popular WhoNews iPhone app, no other app is updated as often from so many sites.”
‘nuff said. TimeSiren says, go get it, dammit. You won’t regret it!
Dalek Flash Mob Dreams
Do Daleks dream of flash mobs? Or was that just a phase that was so two years ago? Does it ever really go out of style with Time Travelers? HELL NO! Okay, this sick idea started like this…
I am a Slurpee-obsessed fanatic in the way others go ballistic when they don’t have their morning Starbucks cup o’ shakes. On the way to my favorite 7-11 to get one, I was relating to my husband (now known as TimeSiren’s toilet-busting husband) how I saw an image on Facebook that I kinda didn’t get. We reviewed it and saw that it was a parody of the song, Soft Kitty from The Big Bang Theory. I said, wow, wouldn’t it be a sick idea to get up a flash mob at Gallifrey next year to surround those annoying, roving Daleks and sing this at them? I mean, wouldn’t you kill yourself if you were a kitten-hating Dalek and got ambushed by annoying fans filking Soft Kitty at you? I figure many lives could be saved this way, inducing their suicide, you know? If we get enough people ahead of time to do this, I’ll even create ribbons such as, “Dalek Flash Mob Victim” (for the Daleks, of course) and “I was in the Dalek flash mob”. If you like this idea, let me know via Twitter and we’ll start a #dalekflashmob hastag.
RTD had Homos, now Moffat loves Lesbians
Life, Doctor Who & Combom reported just yesterday in their weekly news roundup that Catrin Stewart is to return as the human half of last season’s new Doctor Who Female Dynamic Duo, reprising her role as Jenny. Do you want to see them both back? Vote in the new survey question for this month. Click the shiny bar below to get your vote in.
Okay, if you secretly hate lesbians, confess, you (and we) all LOVED that bizarre human/Silurian couple. This straight, married girl sure as hell does!!! They seem a natural for their own spin-off series and fans have been clamoring so much for one (including me and about 50 other friends), that Steve Moffat answered their pleas with the sad news that he is too busy with Sherlock and Doctor Who to even entertain the idea. (So go back in time, Steve, and do it before you did Doctor Who, I mean, haven’t you learned ANYTHING from writing Matt Smith’s Doctor doing it all the time?!?) I wonder if all this fan interest surprised him? It did seem weird, I mean, usually the more vocal fans are either defending River Song or bitching that Moffat is destroying Doctor Who for them. Don’t tell me you people are actually learning to LIKE his ideas?!? Be still our beating hearts!!!
Five and Dime Fangirls Update
Still looking for River Song YouTube videos, Who Peeps. The clock is ticking and the Time Meddlers’ meeting is on the 15th of this month. I know I am fast when it comes to editing these things together, but I want to add a little something else to it as well. Get me those links, Time Travelers!
Would you like to see a Five and Dime Fangirl t-shirt with our logo? We’re thinking about it. Let us know if you like the idea.
That’s it for now. Still more to come, so tune in Thursday as we update all things Doctor Who and fannish Doctor Who news twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday.
BTW, what the HELL is a Combom?!?
