Even more Dotor Who awesomeness!

From Richard Swarbrickvia LAUGHING SQUID



i09 has Every Single Doctor Who Story, Ranked from Best to Worst
 Top 5
 1) Caves of Androzani - Yes, it really is that good. Peter Davison's final story as the Doctor is both thrilling and fascinating, thanks to a complex plot, intense performances and beautifully staged action. The Doctor is dying from the first moments of the story, and this is all about him making his final hours count.

2) Blink - You could argue that it deserves the top spot. This insanely inventive story about stone statues that can get you when you're not looking, and a DVD extra showing a missing time traveler dispensing cryptic advice, is still unrivaled, even after years of copies.

3) City of Death - Douglas Adams co-wrote this witty story about an alien fractured in time, who is creating duplicate Mona Lisas as part of a ploy to time-travel and erase humanity from history. The most stylish classic Who, but also the cleverest.

4) The Doctor's Wife - The TARDIS is made flesh, and we finally get to the bottom of the Doctor's relationship with his time machine, in this intensely moving story.

5) Midnight - When the Doctor's gift for being the "cleverest man in the room" is turned against him, he's at the mercy of human nature at its most revolting, in this misanthropic, scary story....


Bottom 5
237) The Sensorites - This story about telepathic aliens and crazy humans is where the strain of cranking out 44 episodes a year starts to show. The Sensorites are among the worst aliens ever featured on Who.

238) Time and the Rani - the worst regeneration story, and overall, kind of an embarrassment. The plot revolves around a giant space brain, Albert Einstein, and pink leg warmers.

239) Fear Her - A little girl whose squiggles come to life turns out to be bonded to an alien that misses its swarm, just as the girl misses her dead father — but luckily, the Olympics happen.

240) The Ultimate Foe - "Trial of a Time Lord" crashes to an ignominious end, as the Doctor's prosecutor turns out to be an alternate future Doctor. (?!) The final episode of "Trial" is one of the most baffling things we've ever seen.

241) Timelash - Yes, this really is the worst story of all time. Just awful. Avon from Blake's 7 is Richard III, and the Loch Ness Monster (again!) is an evil dictator who wants to marry Peri. Oh, and H.G. Wells is a prat.

(Insane News) They want to make a sequel to IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE? WHY?

From BUZZFEED

The sequel, tentatively titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, will be produced by Allen J. Schwalb of Star Partners and Bob Farnsworth of Hummingbird. “The storyline of the new film retains the spirit of the original – every life is important as long as you have friends,” Farnsworth said. The duo announced Monday that Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey’s daughter “Zuzu” in the original film, will return for the Wonderful Life sequel as “an angel who shows Bailey’s unlikeable grandson (also named George Bailey) how much better off the world would have been had he never been born.”


More Doctor Who 50th Anniversary fun!


From DOCTOR WHO NEWS
An Australian parliamentarian, George Christensen MP, proudly wearing a Fourth Doctor scarf, has presented a motion in the Australian Parliament, acknowledging the strong links between Australia and Doctor Who on the 50th anniversary of its debut. Mr Christensen mentioned the important role that a number of Australians have played in the long history of Doctor Who, including C.E. "Bunny" Webber, Anthony Coburn, Ron Grainer, Dudley Simpson, "adopted Aussie" Katy Manning, Janet Fielding and Kylie Minogue. Mr Christensen's speech can be seen here on YouTube. The motion also proposed that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Screen Australia and the various Australian state-based film funding bodies consider offering finance to entice the BBC to film the 2015 series in Australia to mark the 50th anniversary of its first Australian screening in 1965. The motion attracted bipartisan support and three other parliamentarians spoke in its favor…

Somewhere out there in the multiverse, there's a version of the Doctor who's Welsh, never encountered the Daleks, never regenerated, lost his memory (and his clothes), was ordered to go to a disco by Margaret Thatcher, got involved in a love triangle with himself, and wears a toothbrush in his left breast pocket. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's time to take a step sideways in time, as we bust through the regeneration limit and take a look back at 14 strange moments of Doctor Who might-have-been.





At some undisclosed point in the 80's, the Canadian animation company Nelvana (best known for producing Care Bears, Eek The Cat and Beetlejuice) proposed an animated series based off of Doctor Who, which judging by these early concept sketches would have involved a bizarre amalgamation of the first four Doctors, with Real Ghostbusters hair and John Nathan-Turner's penchant for slapping question marks on everything. He also would have been joined by a redesigned K-9 who possibly morphs into a doctor's bag (remember, it was the 80's) and his most fearsome foes, the Daleks, would have been transformed into bulbous pear-shaped things with tank treads, vacuum cleaner arms, and Madonna breast cones…
