It’s A UK Thing, Ursus

Have to admit, I’m not up on my Doctor Who lore. Other British shows like Fireball XL5 and Stingray, yes. But Dr. Doctor Who has eluded me, thus far. An online search reveals that this phone booth call box is called a “Tardis” and is in fact a time machine.

Well, of course it is.

It looks like British Shorthair Ursus doesn’t know Who or what is going on, either.

  1. He’s certainly living up to his name !

  2. If you like Fireball XL5 and Stingray, you really MUST watch Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons!

  3. You did a big no no there Brinke, it’s always Doctor Who NEVER EVER Dr. Who. 8O

    I have learned that you have to be careful about things like that, Whovians (Doctor Who fans) can be as bad as Trekkies sometimes, bless their little geeky hearts :lol:

  4. i’ve never heard such a rule. but i’ve been stuck in a tmie loop for a bit.

  5. er…time loop….chameleon circuit fault is spreading to autocorrect…

    It’s the fault of all that wibbly wobbly, time-y wimey stuff.

  7. Actually, it’s only “Doctor”. “Doctor Who?” is the question he usually gets whenever he introduces himself.

  8. Nah, no offense was committed there; the character was not referred to, only the show.

  9. Actually it´s “the” Doctor….. ;)

  10. As I was saying…. :lol:

  11. :D

  12. Janine Melnitz says:

    And it’s a police box, not a phone box. We used to have those in the UK. :)

  13. You’re OK, Ursus, it’s bigger on the inside. You can go with them.


  15. Fascinating!!!

  16. Forget Doctor Who. Red Dwarf is the show for me.

  17. goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes?

    that should make it the anchor of c.o. friday night popcorn time

  18. :lol: Your dear sweet British Shorthair, Ursus, looks so cute sitting up on his hind feet, Nicholas K. :lol:

  19. i believe this scene is all that remains of the lost episode, “Terror of the Snorglons”

  20. Ah, well done!

  21. Loff!

  22. I like cats. Cats are cool.

  23. Smartypants says:

    What a handsome kitteh – and good balance too!

  24. Yeah, I was waiting for him/her to tip over backwards!

  25. Coffee Cup says:

    You guys HAVE seen the TARDIS cat house, right?

    Amazing. Also, that cat needs a fez.

  26. Run, you clever boy…
