More Who-ology

A few more thoughts on Who-ology (see previous posts from April 28 and July 4):

The list of birthdays of actors who played companions would be useful for Doctor Who websites/Facebook pages/blogs.

I wasn’t aware that Geoffrey Beevers, who played the decayed Master in The Keeper of Traken, also played Private Johnson of U.N.I.T. in The Ambassadors of Death.

In a listing of ‘real’ books that have appeared or been mentioned in Doctor Who, one is Where’s Wally?—which I thought at first was an error, but found out that’s what it’s called in the U.K. I’ll have to re-watch The Mysterious Planet from the Trial of a TimeLord series for an explanation of the Books of Knowledge of Ravolox (Moby-Dick, UK Habitats of the Canadian Goose, and The Water-Babies—really?).

A list of TV shows and movies that are referenced in Doctor Who made me want to watch The Unquiet Dead to catch the mention of Barbarella, ditto The Addams Family in Flatline, Teletubbies in The Sound of Drums, etc.

I wondered what “Death is the Only Answer” (on a list of scenes in which the Doctor met famous people from history) was until I saw it in a batch of Doctor Who mini-sodes on YouTube. I recently finished watching the 49 minisodes in chronological order, spanning from the beginning of the10th Doctor’s tenure to the 50th Anniversary episode. Several of their titles appear on various lists in Who-ology. Many are included on season DVDs, but others in the YouTube compilation were from charity and other traditional UK events. After that montage, I found another of scenes that followed River Song’s timeline, like the Guardian anniversary party theme we had back in 2015.

Between Who-ology, Doctor Who minisodes, and meetings of the Guardians of Gallifrey, I’m getting just enough of a “Who” fix to hold me until the new series starts!
