What time is it? It’s THAT TIME ON DOCTOR WHO!!
Welcome once again to our weekly meme feature, #ThatTimeOnDrWho by Brent Kincade, which lovingly riffs on 50+ years of Doctor Who adventures!
While finally sitting down to watch the recently rediscovered Patrick Troughton serial The Web of Fear (1968) with my friends, we were in a very reverent mood. After all, this is a very special occasion that does not happen often – a chance to watch an old Doctor Who story that you’ve never seen before! Alas, we were no more than ten minutes into the episode when one of us had to blurt out a funny comment due to the similarity between an object in the episode and an object in an episode of The IT Crowd.
For those of you who may have missed The IT Crowd (shame on you) then here is a clip to the object in question from the episode, The Speech (2008):
FUN WHO FACT: The Web of Fear features the first appearance of Nicholas Courtney as Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, who in this tale is a Colonel, and will eventually become a Brigadier and the Doctor’s best friend.
