The Sensorites WINNER

Thank you to everyone who entered the DVD giveaway for three copies of Doctor Who: The Sensorites. The guest judge, Simon Haynes, has made his decision and so it’s time to announce the winners.

The instructions for the competition were as follows…

Complete the following quote from The Sensorites:
“Weakling! Betrayer of our people! Coward! I should imprison you in some room wherein no light can shine and fill that room with…”
PLEASE NOTE that the judge will be looking for creative/humorous answers rather than what was actually said in the episode. So put on your thinking caps!

It’s interesting to note that a number of people, including our first entrant, were so eager to enter that they didn’t read the instructions properly. They completed the quote as it was said in the episode with “NOISE”. Ah well… better luck next time. :-)

But now I’ll shut up and hand over to our guest judge, Simon…

Judging the competition
by Simon Haynes

I had fun reading the answers to the competition, which ranged from weird to political, and witty to sarcastic.

In the end I had to choose three, and in no particular order they are …

Niall Doran:
“Weakling! Betrayer of our people! Coward! I should imprison you in some room wherein no light can shine and fill that room with…
the rest of the party rabble challenging the Prime Minister!”

It’s bad enough reading about squabbling pollies in the media, but getting stuck with a roomful for all eternity? I’d be reaching for the dematerialiser before you could say ‘No, Prime Minister’.

Roberto Colombi
“Weakling! Betrayer of our people! Coward! I should imprison you in some room wherein no light can shine and fill that room with…
Reality TV ‘Personalities’ and your living hell will be complete!”

Reality TV brings out the worst in people, and with all the voting and evictions going on you’d almost think you were watching federal parliament in session. Getting stuck in a room packed with backstabbers would be terrible — I’d have no idea which way to turn.

Danny Oz:
“Weakling! Betrayer of our people! Coward! I should imprison you in some room wherein no light can shine and fill that room with…
fans arguing about continuity!”

Ahh, yes. I’ve attended many cons over the years and have witnessed many a dustup over differences of opinion. (Or even different shades of the same opinion.) Shout out ‘Romana was the best Doctor Who companion’ and ten people will disagree, five will agree and two will yell out ‘which Romana?’ Then they’ll argue about it for the next three days.

Well done to the winners, and congrats to all entrants for making me laugh, smile and wince.
