New Doctor Who Spoof

Children’s comedy legends the Chuckle Brothers are this year embarking on a brand new stage adventure – “DOCTOR WHAT AND THE RETURN OF THE GARLICS”

Kicking off 11th February at the Futurist Theatre in Scarborough, the cult comics will be taking their unique brand of humour nationwide throughout 2006. You can find out more about bookings via the Qdos Entertainment website – watch out for the catchy theme tune – and below is the spiel:

The Chuckle Brothers are back in a brand new adventure for 2006.

Phil dale for Qdos Entertainment is proud to announce that children’s favourites, Paul and Barry Chuckle, will be embarking on a national tour of their new show – Doctor What and the Return of The Garlics!

The boys set off on a galactic trip thinking it is nothing more than an unusual holiday and end up on another amazing adventure fighting for good against evil but stopping along the way for egg and chips and a cup of tea.

“Doctor What” follows the hugely successful tour of “Pirates of the River Rotha” which broke all previous box office records last year.

Bring the whole family along to see another madcap adventure with Britain ‘s favourite double act, the Chuckle Brothers. Fun for all the family from 3 to 103.

Renowned for their wealth of catch phrases and general tomfoolery, The Chuckle Brothers are probably the foremost children’s double act in Britain. Not only have they struck on the best name for a Dalek spoof imaginable, they’re loved by kids across the nation. It’s guaranteed to be a great show, so if you’ve got some young kids or just an unhealthy interest in corny gags, get yourself there. This news report was brought by me, to you.

The BBC’s Official Doctor Who website meanwhile has a list of the new Doctor Who 2006 toy merchandise. New toys are released throughout the year, and of particular interest are the:

TARDIS Electronic Playset features authentic light and sound effects and its console is a faithful reproduction of the one seen on screen. Its motorised ‘time column’ rises and falls (with lights) when the TARDIS is in ‘flight’ and it has ‘lift out’ access panels in the floor to reveal the mechanisms and circuitry hidden in the floor.

and the:

Cyberman Voice Changer Helmet [which] will change your voice into true Cyberman speak, leaving your real identity undetected. Excellent!

For added protection, the Cyberman Room Guard will help you ward off intruders attempting to trespass on forbidden territory.

Finally, UK broadsheet The Telegraph is predicting next Christmas’ star toys. Among the list of gravity-defying jeeps and robot dinosaurs are K-9 and the above mentioned Cyberman Voice Changer Helmet:

Doctor Who fans can buy a range of action figures, a remote controlled K-9 dog, and a Cyberman helmet that changes the wearer’s voice into the electronic buzzy voice of the robotic monsters.

Cracking stuff!
