This is for Doctor Who fans everywhere.

    Thank you for that; it brought back a lot of memories. During adolescence I was endlessly fascinated by Tom Baker’s companion Leela, for some reason.

    Emma Peele was pretty interesting as well. ;-)

    Let’s see ya need at least a half dozen nerds (or one super nerd) working at the BBC (to have all that material available) working day and night for a week – splicing and splicing.
    Used to watch Dr. Who and Monty Python’s FC on public television back in the day (the late seventies) – first real exposure to British TV.

    What is this doing here?

    J/P=?

    Come to think of it.. what AM I doing here?

    It’s time to pay the price…

  6. The Commodore says:

    The BBC has been releasing old Doctor Who DVD’s that are re-assembled from old video tapes, film and even old archived material found in vaults scattered around the world. Only true geeks would spend the kind of effort needed to string together a b&w William Hartnell episode from home 8mm film (and make it look reasonably good).

    And, only some old and dedicated geeks would watch them all. Hee….

  7. Retsef says:

    Good fun!

    Big fan of Tom Baker!

  8. Neumann says:

    Massive geek props to Deej for his comment.

  9. Buzz says:

    Has this always been a running gag in the Dr. Who scripts, or is it some sort of fall-back trite line in Brit scripting?

    Or is it some chestnut of stage writing, akin to the comedy class improve edict of always plopping out agreement when someone hands you an outrageous lead-in line?

    Seinfeld had his “not that there’s anything wrong with that,” but it was always placed rather obviously. And many shows or individuals have bestowed special importance on single words or phrases as crack corn.

    “Well!”

    “Pretentious? Moi?”

    “Here’s your sign.”

    “Git er done.”

    “…or Nambla.”

    This is hilarious!!! Thanks for sharing!

  11. BigCarbonFoot says:

    Who are you doing there?

  12. chuck says:

    “What are you doing here” translates loosely into “WTF?”

  13. Raster says:

    Hilarious! Geek factor – 10!

    Ok, time to cook up catch phrases:

    “I know nuzink.”

    “Sarget Carter, Sarget Carter!”

    “Lissen up knuckleheads”

    “Smiles everyone, smiles!”

    “Propane, and propane accessories”

    “Whut you talkin about?”

    “Jump in Bo Duke!”

    “One of these days!”

    Best was when the “newest” doctor was silently mouthing “what are you doing in there?”
