The Nattering II/One Week Left in the Eruditorum Press Doctor Who Poll
First off, because I forgot to announce it last week due to going “oh shit it’s our one year anniversary I should do a thing,” there’s a new not-quite-a-Pex-Lives out, The Nattering II, featuring James talking with Jack, Daniel, Kit Power, Gene Mays, and Kim Karr. Get that here.
Second, there’s a week left to vote in the Eruditorum Press Doctor Who Poll. We’ve already got 296 entries (though I invalidated the one that voted for the TV Movie nineteen times followed by The Unicorn and the Wasp) and 706 separate stories in the tally (though there’s probably a few duplicates in there to clean up), but that can easily grow. And while first and last place are probably set in stone at this point, there’s still loads that’s close. Submit your vote here. Polls close at the end of September.

You invalidated my ballot???

You’ve been wrangling with the Stupid Bloody Labour Party, Jack, you should be more than used to it.

We are gonna see all 706, right? With their + and – counts? It’s not nearly as much fun if we don’t get the midground as well as the highs and lows. I wanna know what came in 353rd, dangit.

And then publish the results as a book series. I’m already looking forward to the bonus essays announced for The Eruditorum Press Doctor Who Poll Results volume 3.

Personally I’m more interested by the commentary by Jack in vol 7 where he claims they’re all terrible and we should only watch The Sunmakers and Paradise Towers.

“[…]one that voted for the TV Movie nineteen times followed by The Unicorn and the Wasp”. Damn that’s brilliant. Why didn’t I think of that?

What’s wrong with The Unicorn and the Wasp???

Actually, I think what makes it work for the joke is that it’s not awful, just a lightweight, disposable non-classic. That’s what makes it a comic anticlimax after nineteen repetitions of the same legendarily dire hate-object.

I actually presented that “It’s silly!” within angle-bracketed “Graham Chapman in general’s uniform” element tags. Since these do not appear in the posted comment, this has apparently been parsed as valid HTML. Does that mean that that text is actually formatted as the words of Graham Chapman in a general’s uniform? Have I accidentally conjured the shade of a dead Python? Am I meddling with things I wot not of? (I mean, given that computer coding is involved, the answer to that question is definitely yes, but how many things I wot not of am I meddling with?)

Isn’t that crossing the line between known & unknown unknowns?

706 stories. I’m hoping every TV story has received at least one vote both ways.
