Okay Folks. Here is the first episode of the show I mentioned yesterday. I’d advise you to watch it quickly, as these things have a way of disappearing into the Void.

Doctor Who – Greatest Moments (BBC Clip)

Posted by: Whochick

This Thursday marks the first of three episodes of the Doctor Who Greatest Moments Special, as put together by the folks from Doctor Who Confidential. Unfortunately for those of us here in the U.S., we asre just going to have to hope that this special makes it to DVD or perhaps BBC America. In the meantime, they’ve released a wee bit of a teaser that has found its way onto YouTube. So…here it is for you all to enjoy.

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.

The Pocket Project: Boom Town

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode five of Doctor Who series one – Boom Town. 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: Boom Town – 1.11

1. Cell Phone – You have to wonder where he got it. He certainly never pulls it out of his pocket again.

2. Sonic Screwdriver – Used to reverse a teleport.

3. Breath Spray? – Something that looks like breath spray that is used to neutralize Blon’s poisoned breath.

Total Items: 3

Hey, now Jack is pulling things out of thin air, too! Do we even want to know where those handcuff bracelet things were hiding? For all that this is not my favorite of episodes, it does have some interesting moments. “Only a killer would know that” for example. The Doctor first recognizes the constant reappearance of “Bad Wolf.” And, of course, the thing that we don’t find out for a couple of years: This adventure is directly responsible for Torchwood’s invisible lift.

The Pocket Project: The Doctor Dances

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode ten of Doctor Who series one – The Doctor Dances. 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 Doctor Dances – 1.10

1. A Banana – Which we don’t actually see until a bit later, as he’s swapped for…

2. Jack’s Blaster – that he uses to blast a hole in the wall.

3. Sonic Screwdriver – it’s totally sonic. Used to threaten gas mask zombies, open a door, sonic a door closed/locked, resonate concrete, open handcuffs, reattach barbed wire (setting 2,428 D), and to try and make the ambulance stop transmitting.

Total Items: 3

I always wonder how long that Banana had been in The Doctor’s pocket. Do the pockets keep things in stasis? The banana looked nice and ripe. We had our first encounter with Jack’s Squareness Gun. Amusing exchange on the topic of Sonic items there in the hall, eh? And I will always love the “Go to your room” bit. Along with the “Know the feeling” bit in the previous episode, they remind you that The Doctor was once a father. I’ll bet he never thought it would come in handy in that sort of situation, though.

The Pocket Project: The Empty Child

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode nine of Doctor Who series one – The Empty Child. 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 Empty Child – 1.9

1. Psychic Paper – Dr. John Smith, Ministry of Asteroids.

2. The Sonic Screwdriver – Used to: unlock a door, intending to scan the randomly ringing telephone, open a padlock, and do a medical scan/used as a flashlight.

3. Binoculars – of a cool futuristic collapsible type.

Total Items: 3

Ah! The first appearance of Captain Jack Harkness. I should keep track of the stuff in his pockets, too, for all that they aren’t bigger on the inside. He has his own psychic paper and a remote that can do quite a bit. Add his wrist computer to the mix and…well, The Doctor has himself a bit of competition. Someone willing to give Rose a bit of “Spock.” I can’t wait to watch the other half of this two-parter again.

The Pocket Project: Father’s Day

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode seven of Doctor Who series one – Father’s Day. 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: Father’s Day – 1.8

1. TARDIS Key – Used to: enter the TARDIS and attempt to bring the TARDIS back.

2. The Sonic Screwdriver – Used to: either lock a door or check how solid it is, hard to tell which, and charge a battery.

Total Items: 2

This episode always gets to me. It’s my favorite from series one, so this shouldn’t be all that surprising. I still love how they managed to create a father for Rose that really explained why she was so different from her mum. Even though The Doctor only used two items from his pocket in this episode, wasn’t it nice that the lowly TARDIS key had a chance to shine for once?

The Pocket Project: The Long Game

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode seven of Doctor Who series one – The Long Game. 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 Long Game – 1.7

1. The Sonic Screwdriver – Used to: get money from a cash point, open the door to the mainframe, mess with the mainframe, Rose removes the Doctor’s manacles, and destroy Adam’s answering machine.

2. Psychic Paper – Used to: fool Suki and Cathica.

Total Items: 2

Only the usual things come out of the Doctor’s Pockets this time. I think this might be the first time that Rose has used the Screwdriver, or at least one of the first times. Knowing what comes later, I always wonder what happens to Cathica after this episode.

The Pocket Project: Dalek

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode six of Doctor Who series one – Dalek. 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: Dalek – 1.6

1. The TARDIS Key – used to open the TARDIS at the very end of the episode.

Total Items: 1

Okay, I was wrong. This is the episode with the least amount of items appearing from the Doctor’s pockets. The Sonic Screwdriver didn’t appear even once! That’s got to be some kind of unique occurrence. One would think that he’d have pulled it out to use on the door to The Cage in order to escape the Dalek, but no. I suppose that The Doctor’s favorite tool didn’t become ubiquitous until series two of the new show. It felt like it was everywhere even in series one, but it looks like I was wrong about that. Interesting…

The Pocket Project: World War Three

Posted by: Whochick

The Pocket Project

As of today, I have been married for seven years. How crazy is that? In the unlikely event that my husband is reading this (he loves Doctor Who, but isn’t too big on blogs, you see) I would just like to say: I’d like to renew your contract for at least another seven years. And now, back to our show…

This week on The Pocket Project we are looking at episode five of Doctor Who series one – World War Three. 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: World War Three – 1.5

1. Sonic Screwdriver – Used to: quickly close the door of the lift they’ve back him up against, open the door to the cabinet room, threaten the Slitheen (he says that he could triplicate the flammability of the alcohol), search the cabinet room

2. Virus CD – Given to Mickey to put online, in order to destroy every mention of The Doctor.

Total Items: 2

This is quite possibly the smallest number of things that The Doctor has ever produced from his pocket during the course of an episode. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that this is part two of a two-parter. Who knows?
