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. 😯

    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 😆

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

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

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

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

  8. As I was saying…. 😆

  9. Fascinating!!!

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

  11. 😆 Your dear sweet British Shorthair, Ursus, looks so cute sitting up on his hind feet, Nicholas K. 😆

  12. 😀

  13. goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes?

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

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

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

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

  17. Loff!


  19. I like cats. Cats are cool.

  21. Coffee Cup says:

    You guys HAVE seen the TARDIS cat house, right?

    Amazing. Also, that cat needs a fez.

  22. Actually it´s “the” Doctor….. 😉

  23. Ah, well done!

  24. Run, you clever boy…

  25. Laura DragonWench says:

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

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