Looks like the Doctor managed to pop by the Royal Albert Hall again — coincidentally, just as the full-capacity audience where enjoyed a Doctor Who-themed concert as part of the 2010 Proms. Of course, this time, the Doctor managed to pop by in person, with a massive, potentially-London-destroying bomb, but luckily, a shockingly prepossessed little boy was there to help save the day. Seriously, that kid is awesome. He’s going to get so much pussy when he goes back to school… or whatever the kindergarten equivalent is. Cooties? (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.
