Looks a little like an alien planet, right?

The Time Meddler: My Eighth Doctors Wish-list [Second Attempt]

If I was an unscrupulous Time Lord with the ability to travel through the fourth dimension and to try to affect changes that I thought would make things better, there’s probably a bunch of stuff I’d do with my favorite TV series, Doctor Who.  Like many-a-fan (I assume), I’ve thought of these things from time to time, and I now I’m going to list them over a series of posts.

The Mothers of Doctor Who

It’s Mother’s Day! It’s a day to honor mothers everywhere, and in particular to celebrate both my own mother and my wife, the mother of my children.

But that’s more the sort of thing I do in real life. Here on this blog, we’re more likely to look at some fictional mothers, and since this is the year of Daily Doctor Who, let’s reflect on some of the mothers that the 57.45 year-old franchise has given us.

Doctor Who Invades the Multiverse: Looney Tunes

Continuing our posts where Doctor Who has managed to sneak its way into other fictional properties, either as a TV show in those worlds, or with concepts from the show existing as real things in those realities, we come to Looney Tunes, or more specifically, the film Looney Tunes: Back in Action from 2003.
