Zing! Get it? Get it? Because he’s a time traveler, and his next and final two-part special is called The End of Time! Crappy article titles aside, the second of David Tennant’s final four Who specials aired Great Britain this weekend — The Waters of Mars, not that any of you North Americans would have illegally downloaded it and watched it already, of course — and the above preview for The End of Time. Based on the video, it appears that The End of Time will include The Master, and about 18 bazillion shots of Tennant’s Doctor looking bewildered. Since I’m still one season three of the new Who era, you Who-ligans can feel free to fill fill me in on anything I missed. (Via io9)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
