Amazing Internet Things: Sherlock vs. Doctor Who: The Musical

My ever-expanding personal “Wholock” obsession means that I watch a lot of random videos on the internet about two of my favorite topics: Sherlock and Doctor Who. Generally this newfound hobby results in lots of disappointment, but every so often you end up finding some real gems, as I’ve highlighted before.

This particular amazing internet thing actually comes to us straight from the Twitter of the man himself, executive producer Steven Moffat. Click through to see some truly creative video editing from YouTube user Lilsakee, in a clip which pits Sherlock vs. the Doctor, set to the tune of “Anything You Can Do” from Annie Get Your Gun. It’s pretty much guaranteed to leave you with a serious case of the giggles.

And don’t worry for those concerned about spoilers – while there are a couple of shots from Series 2 in this clip, it doesn’t give anything away about the new season!

Amazing Internet Things: A Truly Epic Sherlock/Doctor Who Crossover Video

Confession time: I think I have a problem. Specifically, a “Wholock” problem. And it’s sort of getting out of hand. Quite frankly, I blame the Best Rumor Ever from yesterday for keeping my brain on the Sherlock + Doctor Who = amazing track over the past twenty four hours. As a result, we end up with posts featuring epic “Wholock” crossover videos.

The “Wholock” phenomenon has been mentioned here before –it’s basically the brainchild of fervent fans who would like nothing better than to see some sort of crossover between Steven Moffat’s two series, Doctor Who and Sherlock.

Since these two shows do seem to share a great deal of the same fans, it was probably only a matter of time until something like this video was created. One particularly talented individual made a “Wholock” movie trailer that mashes up the storylines from both series’ recent seasons. And, seriously, it’s awesome.

HUGE WARNING THOUGH: While this video is, indeed, an incredibly amazing internet thing, it is also chock full of SERIOUSLY MASSIVE Sherlock Series 2 spoilers. Please tread with caution and just bookmark this page for later on if you’re avoiding such things until after the episodes air. For those who still want to see it, or have already spoiled themselves silly via other avenues, feel free to click right on through.

Amazing Internet Things: Stuff The Dowager Countess Says

Since it’s our first Sunday without Downton Abbey, we could probably all use a little internet pick me up to help us get through the day. By now, most of you have probably seen some variation of the Stuff [Some Group or Person] Says video phenomenon. It’s been everywhere the past month or so and has given us some gems sending up seemingly every gender, city and occupation. Some of you might have even been getting a little tired of this meme – maybe you even started thinking that it wasn’t funny anymore – but I am here to present you with a bit of awesomeness that might change your mind.

I suppose it’s a sign that Downton Abbey has truly, officially “arrived” in mainstream American popular culture that someone actually decided to do a “Stuff The Dowager Countess Says” video. And, as you’d expect, it’s pretty fantastic. Click through to see for yourself!

A whole lot of you have taken the Downton Abbey Personality Quiz over the last few weeks and, hopefully, most of you were happy with your results (or cheated just kept taking it until you got the character you really wanted, like I did!)

We got curious about how the quiz results broke down, though, so we thought we’d take a look at how everything shook out, including total results, most popular result, etc. There were some interesting trends, so click through and for a look at our fun pie chart that breaks out everyone’s answers by character, based on some snazzy behind-the-scenes analytics.

 

Amazing Internet Things: Every Doctor Who Story From 1963 to Now

Doctor Who is turning 50 next year, so it’s probably pretty safe to say that even the series’ most vociferous and dedicated fans might have a few gaps in their knowledge of the show and its history (Heck, I certainly do – rather large ones, actually - and I’m the biggest Whovian I know). In what is basically the coolest video to appear on the internet in ages, Youtube channel BabelColour has put together something that is both amazing and educational for fans both new and old.

This video takes 48 years of Who history – including the main series, all the spin-offs, the comedy special bits, trailers, really everything – and arranges everything in chronological order for a ten-minute romp through every episode and extra of the entire franchise. It’s fantastic (to steal the Ninth Doctor’s catchphrase), covering 784 episodes, 226 stories, and 11 Doctors - every adventure from William Hartnell’s The Unearthly Child to Matt Smith’s 2011 Christmas special The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe. It will make you want to watch every episode available, while simultaneously cursing the fact that there are 106 episodes that are still missing from the BBC archives. So, yes, you should click through and watch it right now. Really.
