Yes, I will knuckle down to my work in a few moments, but I feel like cluttering your f-list with stuff first. Benny Hill/ Eminem / Doctor Who. A video mash-up. Emphasises the ridiculous campy and scary side of DW (on account of the ridiculous campy and scary vibe of Benny Hill and Eminem). Looks like it was thrown together, is actually cleverly done IMHO.

See the video here.

from Metafilter.

Glad you liked it. The opinions on metafilter were very divided. Quite a few of the clips were from the 80s doctors that I never watched. It reminds us that DW was always an insanely vital show.

I know, I never would have guessed. Also, is it my imag. or is eminem going 'dun-duh-dun, dun-duh-dun' (that is me trying to render the doctor who theme) at one point.

I think it might be the Batman theme tune.

Yay. What I like is that these are the things that people might think are the most stupid about DW, but are actually Big Fun. I like that shot where Tennant sort of flexes his neck while looking at the camera, not sure where it's from, and they found a pic of Pertwee doing almost the same thing.

Brilliant, thank you!

It's nice to be reminded that there are just as many ridiculous campy moments in New Who as there ever were. In some cases, they may be more knowing, but that nuttiness is still there. Hurrah!

Yes, that struck me. It may even have reconciled me to that gross old-Doctor puppet thing. Well, at least as something that's in line with previous nonsense.
