Circa Early 1995
Top Ten Things Amblin Should NOT Do With The New Doctor Who
10) The Return of Adric
9) Completely dispense with cheesy special effects
8) Have the Doctor doing passionate love scenes with green skinned women
7) Alien speech with subtitles. It would ruin my illusion that everyone in the universe speaks English
6) The new Doctor with an Alabama accent
5) Pastel-colored Daleks, line dancing to Achy Breaky Heart
4) Anyone saying "Blobby" even once
3) A crossover with Spielberg's "Earth 2" (Then again... it might just work)
2) Rewrite the Doctor's history so that he's actually a human with a silly tendency to time travel and the Time Lord's are really the result of his overworked imagination (as were Adric and Mel). The only time the universe had actually been in danger was when he did something particularly stupid and now if Susan would only bring him some Lithium we can get on with the series.
And the number one thing Amblin should NOT do with the new Doctor Who:
1) Make David Letterman the Doctor with Madonna as his companion

"You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies." The Seventh Doctor -- Remembrance of the Daleks

And the number one thing NOT to bring on a picnic:
1) Rain

"This is what the locals call a 'soft' day." -- The Doctor in Stones Of Blood

Top Ten Ways To Tell If You're A Whovian
10) The only two episodes you still get confused are "Seeds of Doom" and "Seeds of Death"
9) You use the term "Blinovitch Limitation Effect" in casual conversation
8) You volunteer to answer phones for Public Television fund- raising drives AND make snide comments about Lawrence Welk
7) You are overcome with grief, or gales of laughter, upon hearing of Adric's death
6) You resent being called a "Whoverine"
5) You wonder why the Voyager crew doesn't simply reverse the polarity of the neutron flow
4) You buy "The New Adventures" even though you don't read them

4) Davy's charming Manchester accent
