What’s Your Funniest Doctor Who Joke Ever?
The programme’s approach to humour has varied considerably over the years, from the wit and sophistication of City of Death to the rather broader based comedy of, let’s say, the notorious trumping Slitheen.
It’s fair to say that this selection, posted on Yahoo, veers more towards the tumbleweed-drifting-across-Mercy-high-street end of the scale, but full marks must be awarded for effort and sheer persistence in transcribing all those gags for browsers’ benefit.
My favourites are the ones about how the Daleks tell each other apart and the Doctor’s conversation with Sarah-Jane about K9. The one about the Doctor picking up a bunch of composers in the TARDIS has to have been around in various incarnations for longer than Gallifrey, but is worth persisting with.
