I love a girl piper

My significant other and I both have an “elevator list”, but there’s only one name on each one. The same name in fact: Craig Ferguson. This video is simply one reason we love him so … keep watching til at least the 1:43 mark. I’m also putting this up as a tribute to The Conduit. […]

Seven degrees of Doctor Who

The good Doctor gets around, so he’s likely to bump into other franchises here and there. He gets close – by one degree – to the Transformers when he runs into a character that had just visited the inhabitants of Cybertron. Comic writer Simon Furman had written a story involving his character, Death’s Head, tangling […]

Doctor Who — lost and found

It’s a fact: the only reason I get up in the morning is to watch Doctor Who, the British sci-fi TV show that is currently celebrating its 48th anniversary. In particular I love — no, TREASURE — episodes from the first six seasons, 1963-1969. Back then the show was shot in black-and-white and on a […]

Elisabeth Sladen was 63, and was universally loved as one of the Doctor’s best ever companions. In fact, he several times referred to Sarah […]

Doctor Who — a warning!

Something is coming…   I feel it’s my duty to warn anyone who regularly listens to the Tower podcast: Our next episode to come out, #17,  will be a challenge to listen to. It’s about an hour and a half of mainly me — the studdering repeater — talking and talking and TALKING about my […]

I Salute You, Brigadier!

Nicholas Courtney, who starred in Doctor Who as Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart opposite no less than eight incarnations of the famous Doctor, has died at the age of 81. Although there was talk in 2008 of bringing Courtney in to play a role in the series again under the direction of Russell T. Davies, sadly that […]

Oh crap … I’m a geek

You ever have one of those moments where you see yourself in total clarity? Where for a brief instant you have a truly focused and naked understanding of what you are in this crazy life? A “fall-awake” moment? Well, I had one of those today. The message was: “YOU are a total geek.” All of […]
