Observation Dome



I've never even *heard* about this - but it interests me because it's Fegen/Norriss. Does anyone remember it? Was it any good?


Nope, can't say it rings any bells with me, either.

Mauve Alert??

For smegs sake, Russell.

Russell didn't write that ep - it was Steve Moffatt.

It's a pretty obvious joke anyway - I doubt it was a Dwarf reference.

Wasn't particularly suggesting it was a dwarf reference, especially seen as it's from Mr Moffatt. I doubt any off them have to be honest. Just the fact it's the same joke!

I can't say I agree the joke is an obvious one though. Any joke could in a way be desribed as obvious once someone has come up with it. But i's not like every sci-fi comedy ever has done the same gag.

Are Blue Alerts a common thing? Only a "mauve" alert gag doesn't really work unless a blue alert is a well known thing (if it is I'm ignorant of it) Whose the alert specialist round here?

Once you start doing alert jokes, it's a fairly obvious one to come up with. Especially as "mauve" is an amusing word anyway. Admittedly, alert jokes are fairly rare...

Anyway - brilliant ep.

Could be Russell's gag though - it certainly seems more his style than Moffatt's. The writer of 'Dalek' mentioned that Russell wrote the "Dump him somewhere beginning with S" joke in that one, for instance.
