That Time On Doctor Who – Week 105

For our 105th meme feature, That Time On Doctor Who by Brent Kincade travels back in time to the Jon Pertwee/Third Doctor era!

#ThatTimeOnDrWho lovingly riffs on moments from over 50 years our favorite space/time travel series, some of them are iconic moments…some are, well, not so much.

Case in point, this frame from Colony In Space (1971)…

"Colony In Space" (1971)

WHO FUN FACT: “Colony In Space” featured a host of “firsts” for this era.  It marked the first time the show had ventured off-planet since it began broadcasting in color.  It features the first time a companion has traveled in the TARDIS since the final story of the Patrick Troughton/Second Doctor era.  Which also makes this episode the first trip in the TARDIS for Miss Jo Grant.  It also featured the first use (after having been mentioned before) of the Sonic Screwdriver by the Third Doctor!

For more “That Time On…” fun, please visit our MEME-GALLERY.  You have been formally invited.  It would be rude not to show up.

About the author

Brent Kincade

Brent Kincade was born under the sign of Pertwee and has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)

His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.

Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".

He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent is the creator of #ThatTimeOnDrWho, #ThatTimeOnStarTrek, #ThatTimeOnStarWars and co-creator of "The Magic Cantina". Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
