Topless Roboteer Courtney alerted me to this new mini “prequel” to the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe. It’s a nice little hit of Who between the end of season 6 and the special airing in a few weeks. It’s like methadone, but for Doctor Who instead of heroin. So I hope this little teaser prevents you fans from giving handjobs to strangers in back alleys in hopes that one of them might be Steven Moffat and that he might would pay you in new Doctor Who footage, I guess.
You know, I feel like this analogy got away from me pretty quick. Let’s just move on.
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.
