The Daily Teaser — 1-12-2013

Hmmm … 

That’s sort of nice to know … 

I have to admit, it was rather naughty of me to post a copyrighted clip to YouTube.

But the clip in question … ?

The clip in question I called Mind Bending: and it’s the scene — from The Brain Of Morbius — that shows Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor facing the monstrously revived evil genius, Morbius, in a mind wrestling match.

What with the recent Day Of The Doctor special having stirred up the discussion on the amount of Doctors, the clip’s seen a few comments posted.

Feel free to add another … 

At ANY rate?   Let’s move on … 


Yesterday’s saw saw Debbi* putting in her answers: And, along with letting us know what’s she’s wearing, also bagging five out of five.

I’ll leave you with this thought from Woody Allen …
“The difference between sex and death is, with death you can do it alone and nobody’s going to make fun of you.”
Woody Allen, born December 1, 1935.
And with this song … 

Enjoy your Sunday … 

*        I will, Debbi, when I see her: I’m expecting her to drop some leaflet’s off, this month.   Oh, this is the book I was talking about.

If you come across a copy in a car-boot sale or thrift shop, it’s probably worth picking up: for starters, it’s worth a LOT more than the 2 shillings and sixpence cover price.
