Mysterious Crater Appears Outside of New Doctor Who Exhibition In Coventry

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

auton smoking craterThe Coventry Telegraph reports that a mysterious crater has appeared overnight outside of the Coventry Transport Museum, just a day before the  opening of a new Doctor Who exhibition on Friday.

Reportedly, strange lights and smoke were seen to be emanating from the crater, and police have cordoned off the area while experts are being brought in to examine the scene.

Considering the timing, I can only assume the crater was caused by the auton control sphereAutons following their traditional pattern of spearheading their invasions with false meteors containing the Nestene Consciousness.

The consciousness is then used to animate various forms of plastic to deadly effect.

Doctor Who References on The Middleman

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

classic Doctor Who monster the ZygonsI’ve been enjoying a show on ABC Family called The Middleman. I forget how I found out about it, since it’s on a channel I’d normally not watch, but I’ve been enjoying it a lot.

It’s very silly, but clever… almost an updated Avengers (definitely making nods to it anyway — the first episode had an extended sequence that was a spoof recreation of the opening theme to the Emma Peel Avengers — a shortened form of this serves as the opening titles for each episode of The Middleman). It’s also *kind* of like Torchwood but less angsty, “dark” and self-consciously “adult” the way Torchwood tends to be (to it’s detriment IMO).
