    Titles that would never have worked Views: 1940
     Sunday, November 30 2008 @ 12:59 PM EST
    How about some titles for stories which would never have worked in Doctor Who? Some examples? I thought you'd never ask. How about:
    An Unearthly Chilli
    The Santa Pit
    Mawdryn Undressed
    The Celestial Teamaker
    The Macaroni Terror

    Any others folks?

    What about:

    The Mackerel Terror
    Power of the Garlic
    Evil of the Garlic
    Tomb of the Cidermen
    The Warm Machines
    Marco! Polo!
    The Mind Rubber

    PS I love "Mawdryn Undressed" - top stuff LOL.

    I played this game a while ago with my friends... kind of
    We replaced words in titles with the word 'fangirl' XD
    It amused us anyway.

    All new series ones:

    -The End of the Fangirl
    -Fangirl in the Fireplace
    -Rise of the Fangirl
    -Army of Fangirls
    -The Fangirl Code
    -Fangirls in Manhattan
    -Planet of the Fangirls (it's a scary place)

    I'll think of more once I've had some sleep XD

    bye bye david :(

    I can think of plenty on a 'adult' theme, but that's obviously too much for a nice family forum like this! Eek! Not sure what that says about me though Confused

    Although I think my verison of The Pleasure Hive is worth a mention. I'm still working on a decent plot though... Wink

    Can I purchase that title off you? It would make a great boxset along with The Pleasure Hive!

    Oh my god - there's an unwelcome blast from the past.

    For reasons I genuinely can't remember, I had the double 7" version of Dance Hall Days. I don't know why. I'm an old punk and ska boy, so exactly what that was doing sandwiched between the likes of The Damned, Madness, Crass and The Beat I really don't know.

    I've just googled them and I'm amazed they're English; (sorry guys from other side of pond) but to me they've got Mid 80s America written all over them.

    The Pleasure Hive they certainly are not.
