Chris Eccleston DB Cooper

I've always thought there's enough of a resemblance between Chris Eccleston and the composite sketch of DB Cooper to be the basis of an interesting story for the 9th Doctor.

Am I thie only Doctor Who  fan who finds it funny that Richard Branson Took off from Truth or Consequences, NM?  #BransonIsAZygon

 

Every Year 3,000 of my closest friends and myself get together for a Doctor Who convention in LA during President's Day weekend. At the convention, many of us gather at midnight Saturday and take a photo. Because of the ongoing worlder wide health crisis, the convention didn't happen this year. You've probably seen several references to it on my timeline this weekend.

Many of us gathered on Zoom at midnight this past weekend (GMT and PAcific) to take a photo and catchup.

I have a small feature on this site where on the lower left hand corner there's a daily message. Recently it was used to encourage voting, and slowing the spread of corona. Usually it's more light hearted things like celebrating holidays. It's my version of a Google Doodle. Here's today's message.

 

Anne and I have been watching The Crown.  We just got to season 3 and I have some questions:

  • There must've been an x-mas special between seasons 2 and 3 because the entire royal family seems to have regenerated.  Where can I get that it doesn’t seem to be on Netflix.
  • Was Churchill on his 13th body?  He didn't regenerate and seems to have died.
  • Do they cover why the Royal Family didn't travel back in time to change the results of the American Revolution?  Let me guess, fixed point in time.
  • I hope there will be a story line where Elizabeth goes back in time and kills Wallis Simpson because of her bitterness over Edward’s abdication.  That could create a timeline where the UK sides with the Germans during WWII and force Elizabeth to undo her actions and accept her fate as Queen.
  • Does Prince Philip like the color of his kidneys?

It's the little things in life that make me happy. I'm writing some copy about upgrading from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 and I worked in the line:

It's the end, but the moment has been prepared for.

Let me just say as interesting as this was, it would have been sooo much more interesting if The Master was the Timeless Child:

  • Why is The Master unstable / evil? He subconsciously remembers all the experimentation done on his previous incarnations as a youth and he's now broken mentally.
  • Why has Missy's character growth been undone? Finding out that he was betrayed by the Time Lords for a second time drove him to find revenge.
  • How does he keep returning from inevitable demise? He has unlimited regenerations.

I'm sitting here thinking that I would have liked to have seen Terrance Dicks' take on the "modern" Doctors
