Who in Futurama
Here´s a few more crossover Who ´cartoons´, this time from ´Futurama´ comic and featuring Daleks, cybermen and K9. I´ve collected these from random sources, and can´t remember where, and the only information I have indicates that they are from a Who parody story called ´Doctor What´ which appeared in Futurama comic No 32 (US publication, June 2007) and in No 49 (UK publication, Jan 2008).
There is a short synopsis of the story here. Professor Farnsworth creates the world's greatest porta-potty. When it flushes, it teleports to a random place in space and time. Whilst Farnsworth is being interviewed by ´Straight Poop´, Dr Zoidberg goes into the porta-potty to poke around and ends up breaking the teleports switch...
According to wikipedia, Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Fururama, is a Doctor Who fan and one of the main characters in Futurama is named Leela after the Fourth Doctor companion. Not a lot of people know that.
If anyone has scans of the full story please get in touch - I´m not convinced the above panels are all from the same story, or that its the story I´ve identified!
See here for reference to Doctor What from the 1960s.
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
