Fake Christmas Trailer + The Making Of Video

Everyone got incredibly excited on the net when people began tweeting, posting, etc. about this awesome (fake) BBC 2010 Christmas Trailer posted on YouTube by dwcast25. I actually followed a link by someone(don't ask me who, I can't remember or I would credit them) who was already calling it a fake. However, another DirtyWHOer who shall remain nameless saw the "trailer" and didn't know, and of course like the rest of the whovian throngs, excitedly tweeted it as the BBC Christmas Trailer.

So I'm like: "Nah, duuude. It's just an awesome fake."
And so the other person's like: "Oh."
(how's that for clever script writing? No? ...right. Sorry.)

BUT, to stray back to my point:
It's an AWESOME fake trailer! So keeping that in mind, I post the Trailer version below and below that the even AWESOMER "The Making of" the fake 'Doctor Who: Christmas Special 2010 Trailer - BBC', which is really fun and interesting to watch. He shows from where the various pre-existing elements of this trailer were taken and how he tweaked them.
Terrific job.

Deleted Scene from Neil Gaiman's 'Doctor Who' Episode

Neil Gaiman reports in his blog the ongoing evolution of his script for the coming season of Doctor Who. Now on it's tenth draft his script has been edited and pared down until "Anything that wasn't moving the plot forward has gone."
He says, "It hasn't really changed that much. It just gets tighter and, I hope, more like itself. Slowly, draft by draft, it's being turned up to eleven." He talks of how Steven Moffat helped him get through the worst of the editing process and about a scene that was cut out back during the 6th draft of the script in which the Doctor eats a bowl of possibly alien food.

The exerpt begins:


AMY
Is it something people can eat?
(to Doctor)
Shouldn’t you scan it with your screwdriver or something?


THE DOCTOR
Why would I scan food with my screwdriver?

and continues on for a nice little descriptive punchline at the end. Go read the complete scene on Mr. Gaiman's blog.

Amazing WHO-wear from Tess-san

TARDIS fascinator, ladies?

Awesome TARDIS dress with obligatory scarf accessory. My favorite detail is, however, the TARDIS key zipper pull. Genius. Designer Tess-san is currently completing a whole collection of Doctor Who based outfits for the fashionable WHOvian lady about town. She's currently taking orders! 
Here's another amazing outfit, a chic take on the 11th Doctor's outfit:
Go NOW to Tess-san's Deviant art gallery and favorite her stuff for her. She deserves all the attention she can get for her efforts. Beautiful work, thank you Miss Tess-san.
Ace!

Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 18

This one's a whopper.

Don't worry, back to short ones' again soon, we wouldn't want to make you sore.

The full Season 31 overview. Was it any cop? Did Matt cut the mustard or the cheese? Looking back, and looking forward. Alas Sen (when he shows up) mentions DS9, guest James runs off early (he has a life, apparently), Sputters waxes lyrical on great Who MILFS, Victor flexes his national pride, Ezy finally joins us for the first time (and probably wishes he hadn't), Terry does the edit (poor lass), and Fuchsia quietly drools over the boy in the fez.

Sod the quality. Look at the size. You don't get many of these to the pound.

Get in.

A Clean Doctor

Have you ever wondered what soap the Doctor uses in the shower?

Wonder no more: Obviously he keeps clean with Doctor Who "Geek Soap".
And for you Dalek fans, apparently there will be a Dalek GeekSoap coming out soon:
"This is just the first of two Doctor Who geeky soaps... look for the custom mold one coming soon! HINT: exter-min-ate! Update: As promised in May 2010 when my original Dr. Who soap came out, the Dalek mold will be coming out sometime in August 2010... after Gen Con!"

Yup. Doctor Who soap. My life is now complete.

The Big Bang 2 Song!

Enjoy "The Big Bang 2" song by Charlieissocoollike(on YouTube) otherwise known as Charlie McDonnell (also a member of Chameleon Circuit, a fun "Who" band to check out). Creative lyrics, nice voice, great Ukulele playing, not to mention cute(just my personal opinion, yes...).


Excellent fun! Thank you Mr. McDonnell.  :-)

Jon Pertwee with Hartnell, in "Will Any Gentleman...?"

An awesome photo of Jon Pertwee with Hartnell, in "Will Any Gentleman...?", a 1953 movie.
I had no idea, being from the States, that this existed. Dying to see it as it sounds like a fun flick as well.

Fab picture!

Thanks to WhoFix.net for posting the picture that came
to my attention via Randall Thomas on FB.
