Video: Sutekh the Parakeet Quotes Doctor Who
Date posted: September 19, 2010
It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to update the site so I thought I’d just add a quick post with a short video of my parakeet Sutekh The Destroyer, named after the classic Doctor Who villain of the same name from Pyramids of Mars.
Being the silly geek that I am, when I got him a few years ago I thought to myself “what’s the most ridiculous thing I could name a parakeet?” — given parakeets are small, harmless & friendly animals I figured the exact opposite would be an ancient and powerful god of evil, and so immediately thought of Sutekh from Pyramids.
Not one for half measures, I decided I also needed to train him to talk and quote his namesake. Here’s a short video of him quoting the original Sutekh saying “Identify yourself, plaything of Sutekh”
He quotes Doctor Who quite a bit, including not just Sutekh from Pyramids of Mars, but also the Roger Delgado version of the Master. If you’d like me to post more in the future, let me know in the comments below…
