And we’ve finally made it to Article 100! Which would normally be time for celebration as we discussed Before the Flood…

But Scott is in Kauai, and we didn’t manage to coordinate our schedules before I ended up in Pittsburgh for Wincon. So, this time we’re trying a little something different.

First, here are some notes:
Interested in the Bootstrap Paradox? Apparently Scott recently discussed it in episode 193 of the podcast Communicore Weekly.
Want to know more about this Fisher King thing that Calliope mangled in the article? Find out more about the film here and more about the myths involving the Fisher King here.

Article 95: In Cardiff?

An eerie tale told by Charles Dickens on Christmas Eve in Cardiff… Nope, it’s not a new historical film. It’s the third episode of the 9th Doctor era, The Unquiet Dead! We’ve been going back and watching some of the older episodes of New Who, and this one is a great deal of fun.

The Pocket Project: The End of the World

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project, we are looking at episode two of series one – The End of the World. What will The Doctor produce from his seemingly endless pockets this time? What will he use the Sonic Screwdriver for? Let’s find out.


The Pocket Project: The End of the World – 1.2

1. The Sonic Screwdriver – Used to: lower the window shields in the gallery they land in, open a few doors, mess with computers, and raise sun filters.

2. Slightly Psychic Paper – Used as an invitation to the event. The first appearance of this new favorite tool of The Doctor’s. Quite handy for crashing parties.

3. The Phone Thingy – With this item, and a bit of jiggery-pokery, Rose’s cell phone becomes the superphone. I imagine that it’s some sort of signal booster. Convenient that it fits in the phone perfectly.

Total items: 3

The Pocket Project: Rose

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

In the Classic series of Doctor Who the Doctor was constantly being told to empty out his pockets. This was especially common in the Fourth Doctor era. When the Doctor would reluctantly comply with the order, the watcher would find any number of strange things that had been lurking in his pockets. If you have been watching the new series, you have undoubtedly noticed that the Doctor still pulls all sorts of things out of his seemingly bottomless pockets. It’s good to know that some things never change. The Doctor likes to be prepared, it would seem, no matter the face that he is wearing at the time.

And this brings me to The Pocket Project. One of the things that I will be doing during our Doctor Who drought is going back through the new series episodes and keeping track of the items our Doctor produces from the depths of his pockets. (Yes, I like making lists. How could you tell?) Along the way, I will also be keeping track of what the Sonic Screwdriver is used for. I shall begin with series one, episode one – Rose.

The Pocket Project: Rose – 1.1

1. The Sonic Screwdriver – used to stop the lift so that the Autons couldn’t follow them, to follow the signal from the plastic arm, to cut off the signal animating the plastic arm, and to lock the back door of the restaurant containing the rampaging Plastic Mickey Body.

2. A Ruddy Great Bomb – used to blow up the relay device on the roof of Rose’s shop.

3. TARDIS Key – Now looking like a normal Yale key.

4. Anti-Plastic – How else are you going to stop a plastic menace?
