The Phantom Menace Gets Another Less Phantom-y, But More Doctor-y Menace

0


By which I mean about four Doctors from Doctor Who have apparently stopped by the Star Wars galaxy and are wreaking havoc. And I don’t mean the Fourth Doctor, although he’s there — I mean Doctors 1, 2, 4, and 9, and they’ve seemed to take sides, some with the Trade Federation, some with the Jedi, but then they switch, or something, and I don’t know really what’s going up but I’m pretty sure the Doctor just had a Me Convention, and some of them got drunk and just fuck with everybody. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s a great deal of fun. I mean, if you consider David Tennant wielding a lightsaber “fun.” Which I do. (Via Geeks of Doom)

About Author

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.
