Yet another info dump…

(I found no fezes in this house…they were, however, in a shop down the way.)

Are you sitting comfortably?

No?

That’s okay…we can wait. (And bring a blanket, it’s chilly.)

Right-o, this is the random stuff that I have open on my desktop (and trying not to duplicate what Dr. Geek has posted…)

Upcoming (or Keep Your Eyes Peeled)

Posted by: Whochick

Check it out! It’s the “coming soon” video from the BBC. Please note that it includes not only a quick peek at the Doctor Who Christmas special, but also a look at some of the other project for Doctors 9, 10, and 11. Oh, and Mark Gatiss. (Yes, this video is made of win, as they say.)

Who may be a Wizard?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

All right so the Doctor Who news is a bit thin again till we get to this year’s Christmas special, but I did find one item that was worthy of mentioning.
According to this article Sylvester McCoy is up for a part in The Hobbit.

Now I can hear you saying “But Dr. Geek, that movie will never be made” and you may be right, but assuming MGM and the other parties figure out their issues, there might be some truth to this rumor. I believe at one point Mr. McCoy was up for the part of Bilbo back during the LOTR movies so it is not impossible that they might offer him the minor part of the Brown Wizard in The Hobbit films.

I wonder how much of the 7th Doctor would be recognizable in the performance. After all The Doctor turned out to be Merlin :)

David and Davina Do Mastermind

Posted by: Whochick

On the 2009 Red Nose Day show for Comic Relief, David Tennant and Davina McCall competed in a special celebrity edition of Mastermind. Predictably, Davina “The announcer of Big Brother” McCall opted to answer questions for Big Brother 2000-2009 and David Tennant chose to answer questions about Doctor Who 1963-now. I won’t tell you who wins, but I will say that I was impressed my David’s knowledge of our show (well…except the one about the drink. I can’t believe he missed that one.) He really is “one of us.” Let me just add that I have no desire to ever appear on a game show like that. My brain would go completely blank. What about you lot?

John Simm Reads for Cbeebies

Posted by: Whochick

John Simm, known in the Whoniverse as Harold Saxon/The Master, reads Me and My Mammoth for the Cbeebies Bedtime Story in this video. It’s a cute little story. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind ending up with a live Mammoth when I was trying to make an airplane.

…I’m just sayin’. Enjoy!

Doctor, Lawyer ….

Posted by: Dr. Geek

With David Tennant leaving Doctor Who, everyone wants to know what he is going to do next. Well, it looks like he may be coming to the USA.

As this article points out, David Tennant may be starring in a new legal comedy. I guess once you have played a doctor you really have only two choices left :)

The premise sounds funny, but I wonder if the character will ever be forced to represent his clients.

An Audition

Posted by: Whochick

A video of David Tennant’s audition for Takin’ Over the Asylum back in 1993 surfaced recently. When he saw the video, David reportedly said “My God, what was I wearing?” Don’t worry. He got the part. Enjoy the audition!

A Couple of Videos to Entertain You

Posted by: Whochick

I was reading this article a while back, and I discovered that there is a band from Manchester called I Am Kloot. Why should you care about this band with a huge cult following? Well, it turns out that they made a video for their song “Proof” that was never released. It consisted solely of a close up of Christopher Eccleston’s head. (Well, you see his shoulders some, but mostly it’s his head.) I’m curious to know what you all think of it. I liked it, but I did also get that thing where you feel a bit uncomfortable maintaining eye contact with someone for too long. It’s quite interesting how much emotion Eccleston can convey with just the tiniest movements. Enjoy!

I Am Kloot – Proof

At one point when John Barrowman was touring the UK (Perhaps “singing his way across the UK” would be a bit more accurate.) among the songs he included in his concerts was one called “The Doctor and I.” Apparently he sings it from Jack’s point of view (which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who sees Jack’s coat behind him.) Here is a video that gives you a wee taste of the song.

John Barrowman – Putting It Together Blooper

Posted by: Whochick

After finding the video of John Barrowman reading a bedtime story on CBBC, I did a bit more surfing about on YouTube and I found this gem. When you see it, you’ll understand why I had to share. Back in 2000, John Barrowman was in a production of “Putting it Together” with Carol Burnett on Broadway. As you might expect, with John Barrowman involved with the production, “Putting it Together” is a musical. In this clip, you get to see some of that singing and dancing. Until, that is, Carol Burnett calls a halt to the show…for a very good reason. How everyone reacts and deals with the problem shows 1) that they believe that the show must go on, and 2) that John Barrowman was a little bit too amused by the situation.
