Monster of the Day #862

Worst Marco Polo player ever.

  • Morbius was so extreme in everything he did that he even took weight loss to the very limit.

    If I’m not mistaken, this story was one of two reasons I never became an alter boy. At the time Chicago PBS started running serialized Doctor Who on Saturday mornings at the same time I was supposed to go out and learn what I needed to learn. As before this time the show ran only on late night Sundays and I adored the show, you can guess the inevitable outcome.

    The other reason I didn’t become an alter boy, for the curious, is because being an alter boy is very, very boring,

    Ah, WTTW. How many old timers did it give the Doctor Who bug?

  • Gamera977

    ‘Five thousand quatloons (how the frell do you spell that!?!’ on the Doctor!!!

    or ‘Quick, Sarah Jane! Whack ‘im in the Fissure of Rolando and save both of you a lot of trouble!’

  • Gamera977

    So your priest didn’t offer to take you out on some of the more exciting stuff like staking vampires?

    Alas, I didn’t get to be an alter boy since I’m (sigh) Protestant…

  • LT_Harper

    Can you help and old alter boy, Father?

  • Flangepart

    Ya know, If she’d pours some good Scots whiskey in there, he’s be in a much better mood.

  • Not even an offer to teach me kung fu. If there had even been the remotes chance I could kick ass for the Lord… I probabaly still wouldn’t have become an alter boy. Doctor Who trumps a lot of things.

  • Petoht

    Dr. Who and Monty Python. Window to the World, indeed.

  • Ericb

    The Scarecrow drools …

  • Ken_Begg

    Over the Brain, or Sarah?

  • Ericb

    Probably both.
