Again, stuff like this is a reason I hesitate to get into Doctor Who. You people are insane! We're talking about fictional murder-robots, not the fate of mankind.

Though now I've probably united both warring parties in their hatred of me. I really should have thought this through a little more.

They are murder-cyborgs, not murder-robots. What we see is essentially a battle tank housing a small snot-like creature with tentacles.

I just paid off my mortgage. I was expecting some communication from my lender regarding the escrow account. As in this is what has been paid, this is what needs to be paid. All I received was a check with little explanation. I know I need to contact my Home Owners insurance to get bills sent to my house. I also know that property taxes are due twice a year, but I just found out that the big payment, several thousand dollars, is due in two weeks. I've got it covered, but it might have been easy to screw up.

Battle tanks? I thought they were battle plumbers, based on their plunger ("plumber's helper") arm.

The special effects budget for the original series must have been like 20 pounds.

You're thinking of Froda, I think. Yodo was the one with the ring. Froda was the one who went off to fight Soloman and got cut in half because they didn't know who his father was.

Right, with their wizard-friend Dumbledorff. How silly of me!

I think you are thinking about Dumbledorfman. He wouldn't have gotten in to Gryffindor except his brother had been a member.
