That Time On Doctor Who – Week 36


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.

If you’re hip to other nerd genres, be sure to also give #ThatTimeOnStarTrek a try!

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.
