laughter builds strong bones

Ask me anything   Submit   20something librarian who works for a bank (go figure) in midwestern america. mostly doctor who (classic/new/big finish), but you'll also find welcome to night vale, ashes to ashes, firefly, my mad fat diary, wonderfalls, my so-called life, corgis/kittens/other cute things, puns, politics (of the progressive variety), and whatever else appeals to me at the moment. but mostly doctor who and cute animals.

There was one point during the recording of this story where Norman Jones, playing Major Baker, had been captured by the Silurians and placed in a cage. I had been placed in a cage alongside him. And suddenly a Silurian guard broke wind, which echoed royally within its rubber suit. Norman and I lost complete control and collapsed with laughter, with the result that we had to shoot the scene over and over again as every time we tried to record it, explosions of mirth would wreck the attempt.

    I should find it weird that one of the most mature versions of the Doctor thinks fart jokes are funny. But I don’t.
