Oi! Ace here, and you're looking at Day 3 of the Five Minute Doctor Who Anniversary Special. Can I just say, you lot had better love these fivers. I've got my Nitro-9 handy and I'm not taking any guff! If I can beat up a Dalek with a baseball bat, you can just imagine what I can do to you if you get on my bad side.

Tonight's episodes show the Professor — I mean, Doctor — in his usual tricky brilliance:

  • "Remembrance of the Daleks" not only kicked off Doctor Who's 25th anniversary season in 1988, but has to be the best retcon ever. The Professor and I go back to the very first episode and totally screw with it! Wicked. It was fived by That Tom Guy.
  • "The Long Game" jumps past my time to the Ninth Doctor from the New Series. And I thought my Doctor was goony-looking. Anyway this episode was fived by Youth of Australia and apparently it's all about the Doctor facing off against a giant booger that hangs of the ceiling of some space station. Gross!

I'm supposed to tell you to come back Thursday and Friday for more New Series fivers, so I guess that's us from the Classic Series signing off for now. Those smug New Series wankers with their fancy graphics and all — they think they're so great. Give me a deodorant can full of explosives any day, that's what I say.

An updated list of all my online writing can be found here. Check it out.

I'm gonna have to get my hands on some Seventh Doctor episodes -- this Ace sounds like my kind of girl.

Anyway, I'd like to note here with some satisfaction that we've now reached the halfway point of this event and Scooter has not yet burned the site down. So far, so good!

A Dalek Chav?
Methinks Ted Sturgeon was too kind.

'Yes, but I think some people should be offended.'

The real reason is, of course, that Daleks cannot see the colour red.
O to be wafted away
From this black aceldama of sorrow;
Where the dust of an earthy today
Is the earth of a dusty tomorrow!

Doctor: Oh. Okay. I shall take us to the far future then. To the year 2000!
Rose: I'm from 2005, Doctor.
Adam: And I'm from 2012.
Doctor: It always used to impress the 1960s chicks. Okay, I shall take us to the far future -- the year two thousand... hundred!
Rose: Isn't that the year two hundred thousand?
Doctor: It's more exotic the other way.
Heh. Nice fiver, Youth of Australia. And interesting name. At least it's not "Youth in Asia."
"Please, Aslan," said Lucy, "what do you call soon?"
"I call all times soon," said Aslan; and instantly he vanished away and Lucy was alone with the Magician.
