Ok, before anything else, I just want to thank you all for following the blog. There are over 600 of you listed as 'followers' now as well. Your interest is much appreciated! Thank you!
Now, a few of you have contacted me about an odd story that's making the rounds today. Apparently, the Sun UK is reporting that "American Doctor Who fans are campaigning for the Timelord to appear in an episode of cartoon classic The Simpsons."
They also report that "Geeks at the Comic-Con festival in the US leaked the colourful characters as rumours circulated that The Simpsons' producers are planning a Doctor Who special."
The Doctor Who Punx from Springfield Punx are posted on the Sun alongside the story as the "leaked" characters of course. It was brought to my attention that there's a print version with the characters there as well. (I would love a physical copy by the way, if somebody could send one over to me I would gladly send a few bucks their direction) The story has made it to one or two other places as well.
Now don't get me wrong, it's really cool to see the pics up there on the Sun and have a bunch of people see them, but I have no knowledge of any American campaign to get the Ol' Doc on the Simpsons. I would surely support such a campaign though :)
And if "geeks" are "leaking" the pics at ComicCon I guess that's fine, but people could have just come and seen them here first had they known :)
At any rate, this seems to be an amusing example of media taking images and building a story around them. Remember people - verify! :) Thanks to Rob Irwin for blogging on this as well.
In other news, there's a mural that has popped up in San Fran that looks to have found inspiration from the Ghostbusters guys on blog as well. I don't know who the painter is, but I think it looks pretty cool. If anyone has info on the story behind it, it'd be cool to hear.
Anyway, so as to not let this weird and hectic day go to waste, here is River Song from Doctor Who - (Click images to enlarge)
Thanks again for visiting!
P.S. To those that asked - yes, A Doctor Who wallpaper is in the works.
Today brings the wide-eyed, ginger haired companion Amy Pond. It's been neat to see her growth during the series, first as young dreamer Amelia, up to the grown woman Amy, running headlong into temporal paradoxes... and stuff. As I understand it, she and Rory look to be back for the next series. I look forward to it!
What can I say about the Weeping Angels? To me, they're pretty much tops among the most uniquely frightening villains on tv. I wonder how many people have had nightmares of them after watching them on Doctor Who... Just remember not to stare at them too long...
