Last week, Community spoofed Doctor Who with their cheeky parody, Inspector Spacetime. And on last night’s Free Agents, PR exec Alex (played by Hank Azaria) mentions that his therapist is named, wait for it, “Dr. Hu.” To which his co-worker responds, “Dr. Who? Your therapist is a fictional, time-traveling humanoid?” Yeah, Whovian world domination is upon us, people. Scroll to around 4:25 for the joke.

The BBC is to axe Doctor Who Confidential, the BBC3 spin-off from its sci-fi drama, as part of the corporation’s ongoing cuts programme.
Doctor Who Confidential, which features behind-the-scenes footage from the making of Doctor Who as well as interviews with the cast and crew, has aired in an early evening slot on BBC3 since 2005, when the corporation revived the main series with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Time Lord.
However, with the corporation facing budget cuts of up to 20% across its output as part of its Delivering Quality First initiative, BBC controller Zai Bennett has chosen to axe the show at the end of its current series.
Hello people who follow me on tumblr! I’m sorry for this momentary, one time only step away from Doctor Who, but I have an exciting announcement!
So I’m in this a cappella group at Northwestern University called Extreme Measures and I’m proud to announce that after a year and a half of hard work and fundraising our first studio recorded album “Extremities” is now for sale on iTunes!! (and apparently other online music stores) I sing a solo on it! ”Everybody Loves Me” Go listen to it!
You should all totally check it out! And if you like it buy a copy and tell your friends or something like that! Thanks!
P.S. The title of this post is the link. Apparently that’s a thing that happens. You may have known about this, but I did not. So I thought I’d give you all that hint.
