Now there’s an article title you don’t see everyday…

Article doesn’t live up to its title, but the idea is worth exploring in greater depth. Keeping it here to revisit.

Maybe this post will also remind me to write something about how Star Wars is the first post-Vietnam space opera and what this means for representations of empire.

EDIT: But it probably won’t.

It’s the TARDIS swimming pool!

In the beginning of The Invasion Of Time, Leela storms off because the Doctor is being a dick. She eventually turns up in the pool, playing with an inflatable frog.

Later, a renegade Timelord helps the Sontarans break into the TARDIS, and they pursue the Doctor, Leela and Andred through lots of brick corridors and dingy workshops that look suspiciously like the BBC basement. Andred boldly holds them off with a pool chair (these are pretty inept Sontarans).

Later, there’s a sketchy-looking art gallery, a sketchier sick bay and a garden with a giant venus flytrap. Meanwhile, the Doctor’s Timelord mentor settles in by the pool, and manages to find himself a newspaper heralding the sinking of the Titanic, a blue beverage and a silly straw.

Gender Reversed Doctor Who Faux Trading Cards

Just shot the final Doctor for the series. 
Sorry, I can only post 10 of them up for the moment. The 1st Doctor will have to wait for now. 

Incidentally, Ten reminds me of @Spaltor. A lot. :)

I’m trying to act like I remember I have a tumblr. For the moment I’m dumping a bunch of very old saved drafts. Then I’ll try to scavenge up some fresh content.

The TARDIS Room: Of course Portland has a Doctor Who-themed bar…
Supposedly Dr. Who can travel through time, though it’s a mystery why he never warned Churchill about Hitler, or David Tennant about ignoring orthodontia. To right the wrong… of sobriety and hunger!… step into The TARDIS Room.

Built by an ex-pat Brit, TARDIS was conceived when he realized the door to the loo in his Fish and Chip shop looked like a police call box, and that the huge amount of possibly physics-defying storage in the back of the resto would be better used as a place where Whovians could sip beers and talk about proper scarf-wrapping technique. Get to a psychedelic time tunnel and check out:

The Space: Hit the front room/ performance space with a bathroom door made to look exactly like a TARDIS, then continue into a rambling series of black-painted rooms leading to a hidden pub. Check out the moving solar system light fixture, life-sized cardboard cut-outs of Who characters, a light-up Dalek clock, and a free-play pool table that you can enjoy while listening to Who sound effects randomized into the mood music, which hopefully won’t want to make you EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

The Drink and Grub: Improve your ability to shout opinions about how awesome Christopher Eccleston was by sipping drafts like Boddingtons, or cracking 75 bottled suds including Great Divide Titan IPA, and 22s like Oakshire’s O’Dark. Then, line your stomach with serious Brit grub including deep-fried sausage-wrapped hard boiled eggs, fish & chips w/ TARDIS sauce (it’s blue!), plus the TARDIS burger with housemade patties topped with bacon and blue cheese, who’s that way because no one wants to hear lounge renditions of Nine Inch Nails songs anymore.

And if by now you haven’t gotten enough Who to last 30 lifetimes, you definitely live in Portland, and will be excited about costume nights, and a full liquor license that will see the pouring of potent Sonic Screwdrivers — amazing tools that could still never straighten up Tennant’s jacked-up grill.

It’s easy to dismiss Leela as simply being there for her barely-there outfit, but she’s easily the most bad-ass companion of that era. She invites herself to travel with the Doctor, she likes to sneak around and stab people, and she tends to run off on her own to try to fix the problem whenever the Doctor turns his back.

Maybe it’s time for Eleven to pick up a space barbarian. There’s been a serious shortage in the reboot.
