It's been a Doctor Who kind of week thanks to the 8-minute Children in Need special, Time Crash. If 8 minutes can send us all abuzz with things Whovian, imagine what it'll be like when Series 4 materializes.
It all really started with the blogosphere posting Time Crash for easy viewing with brief comments from Postmodern Barney, Blog THIS Pal!, Retroactive Continuity Redux, Trusty Plinko Stick (who previewed the event a month ago), and rather longer comments from me about who MY Doctor was (to which I add last night's Friday Night Fight).
But it didn't stop there. Blog THIS Pal went on to list a beginner's guide to Doctor Who DVD watching. Where do you start if you're only getting interested? Blog THIS makes some good suggestions. Blog THIS also celebrates the 44th anniversary of the show this Friday, with a clip not from the first episode.
And as Friday was Doctor Who's anniversary, Gad, Sir! Comics! of course posted a little celebration... and just after a eulogy for Verity Lambert, Doctor Who's very first producer who died this week. In preparation for Time Crash, Steve had also written up a good article on Who and charity events, especially as they related to comics.
More eulogies from Tegan at Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog, The Wertzone, Love and Liberty, and Behind the Sofa.
Mike Sterling sells us on Rich's Comix Blog's run of The Ten Doctors, which is comics fanfic about exactly what you think it is about. I've started it and it's actually pretty charming.
The Fortress of Fortitude reveals who would win between The Doctor and Sauron.
A gay character makes an appearance in the "young adult" aimed Doctor Who novel, Forever Autumn, attracting comments on Postmodern Barney.
Retroactive Continuity Redux is still sporadically publishing a guide to Daleks, the 5th chapter of which appeared just last week.
Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell writes a quick note on Doctor Who winning a Writers' Guild Award this week.
And in a somewhat related incident, the Absorbascon has gone where no man has gone before by presenting Kylie Minogue as Dazzler. If you don't see the connection, wait for Christmas.
