Sylvester McCoy Joins Doctor Who-Inspired Inspector Spacetime!
Ha! No we wouldn’t report on Inspector Spacetime! Ha, no! It has nothing to do with anything affiliated with this website or any intellectual property owed in perpetuity by the BBC or that of NBC; nothing what… so… ever…
…Right, the lawyers have gone!
Inspector Spacetime – the favourite Sci-fi show of the cast of characters from NBC comedy Community – is heading to the big screen; staring none other than the Doctor himself Sylvester McCoy!
That’s right the makers of the fabulous Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time, have bypassed a second series and are heading to the big screen with the equally acceptable Untitled Motion Picture About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time.
Proving how serious the producers are about uniting the Doctor and his lawyer baiting equivalent they have even provided a handy quote from the man himself:
It’s a brilliant piece of work! Marvellous, and I really want to work with The Inspector!
Joining Sylvester on this merry chase down familiar pathways is Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) and Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, various Big Finish productions).
As of yet there is no set date for UMPAASTWCATTT but the production is hoping to raise $25,000 via Indiegogo to get the ball rolling with the rest of the budget expected to come from other investors.
Inspector Spacetime was first introduced in Community as the favourite series of Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy (Donald Glover) in a series of short, hilariously observed clips featuring Travis Richey in the titular role.
Filling in the continuity gaps, Richey, thanked fan pledges from Kickstarter, then went on to film a six episode web series, during which he was served with a Cease and Desist writ by NBC’s legal Terrorhawk; forcing him to change the name to the far better Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time.
The six episodes of the first web series are available online now along with an eight minute prequel to the second series/motion picture. Find out more at 11thinspector.wix.com/theinspector
