All those Dr Who moments that make you go 'AH HAA', that's a Blakes 7 comment or tie in

What does Bop Ad mean?


Sorry AA, only just saw this. Douglas Adams used to get referred to as Bop Ad by his fans as that's what his signature looks like. The main character in "Kill the Dead" is Parl Dro, a name likewise based on PD's signature.

It's a great design. I wish they'd use it more in nuWho than the other circle things.
Of course it's a great design, it's by the man who designed the (proper) Liberator!

The latest one is in the recent episode 'Inside The Dalek'. When the Doctor, Clara and the team are put into the nano scanner to be shrunk, they are given clip-on control bracelets to restart the growth process after the mission is completed. The bracelets bear an uncanny resemblance to Liberator teleport bracelets, but are instead painted silver. I found the production drawings on the BBC's Dr Who page.

I also noticed the bracelets in last weeks episode. What is the old BBC doing? Teleport bracelets, and the phrase 'seek, locate, destroy'...homage to our dear program perhaps, or just coincidence? -Paula

In 1979, Terry Nation's Dr Who story "Destiny of the Daleks" had the titular monsters intoning "Seek - Locate - Exterminate - do not deviate".

I think it was Nation having fun with himself.

I noticed the bracelets and "seek, locate, destroy" too.

isn't that phrase in the chase/ dalek masterplan too?

I didn't see that exact phrase in transcripts of the dialog of either story.

I was assuming that a Dalek would have said it. If someone else said it, it's possible I blipped over it.

There's that feather wrap Servalan wears in Weapon, I believe, and Romana I wears in one of the Key to Time episodes.

Gareth Thomas tells this story:

He was working on Blake when Tom Baker was the fourth Doctor. Blake and The Doctor spent a lot of time walking down corridors. Both wanted a scene in which the two characters pass each other headed in opposite directions.3

Hello, Blake.
Hello, Doctor

And that's it, they both keep going, no other explanation. This scene would appear in both shows on the same week, but of course, the BBC never even considered it.

She does. I don't know if it's the same one, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Not to mention they FIT better than the classic bracelets!

Look at the bracelet in the trailer for The Caretaker--that big pink button!

The trailer was too short to really see any detail.

Thanks for the clarification! Maybe it's evolved, but I've always thought PD's autograph looks like Pal Dunn.

In the recent Mummy On The Orient Express, the B7 teleport sound effect is clearly heard when the train carriage unmasks as a laboratory.

There was a mention of a planet called Obsidian in Mummy on the Orient Express.

I'm always hoping Big Finish will take up the gauntlet (or the mantle or whatever) and do an audio version of this, even if it's thrown on as an after-the-credits type bit. Actually, I'm surprised the BBC technical crews didn't film something like this for one of their internal "VT Christmas" tapes, or whatever they were called. There's one (the Doug Who one?) with John Cleese asking Tom Baker for his autograph, for his blind nephew. They find a piece of paper but neither has a pen. "Don't worry," says Cleese. "I'll just tell him it's signed." How much better if they'd done "Morning, Blake" "Morning, Doctor" instead?
