It’s not often that Doctor Who events come with adult warnings, but Los Angeles’ A Strip In Time, an annual tribute to everyone’s favourite show by Burlesque company, Peepshow Menagerie, probably shouldn’t be viewed by minors.
Don’t worry, you won’t find any explicit content on Kasterborous. Alternatively: I’m really sorry, but you won’t find explicit content on Kasterborous.
Burlesque isn’t a strip show though: more of a big tease. And A Strip In Time teases with the Princess of the Ood, a ‘Supreme Sexy’ Dalek and a cat nurse, Sister Mercury, and then some. The show, which was held last Saturday, also featured companions like Ace, the second Romana, K9 and River Song, as well as monsters like the Weeping Angels, a Saturnyne, and a Cyberwoman – a bit like the one in Torchwood, but more tasteful (ho ho ho).
Oh, and Queen Victoria.
Performers included: Scarlett Letter, Glama Sutra, Caramel Knowledge, and Greta Grenade. Nerd Reactor’s Jaynesis Ong was on hand to see the show (you can read the full report here), or, if you want to see River Song’s, uh, bare-faced cheek, check out Nanette Gonzales’ photos here.
