Dr Who

PICTURE BOX no.4: “Chap with blinks, three rounds snap-ped!”

More like the Blink-adier!

Atten-shun! It’s a PICTURE BOX special investigation, into the photographic habits of one Alistair Gordon Chunky Splink Lethbridge Hyphen-or-no-Hyphen Stewart of the Government’s Killing Aliens Division, UNIT! And if you ever thought the Brig was a bit of a Colonel Blimp character, think again – it’s Colonel Blink, stuffing up not one but three Doctor Who photoshoots circa 1970, by failing to have his eyes open at the all important “cheese” moment. Damn his optics!

Here’s the next piece of evidence….

The eyes don't have it

C’mon Alistair, one more try…

"Lib-EYE-ty balls-up, Doctor Tyler!"

Oh, for the love of…! Dunno about UNIT. More like nit!

    Possibly he was, but he certainly had the best/most attractive female assistant; the slightly forgotten but my favourite by a mile Jo Grant, played by Katy Manning

    Responding to my own message, but……..Can’t believe it, I see that Katy Manning is actually appearing in a new episode of “Sarah Jane Adventures” almost as I’m writing this – as mentioned in a new TVC Pick of the Day.

    Unfortunately, I’ve just watched a bit of it on iPlayer and I’m going to stick with my old memories of her. (If I just say “lip job”)
