DOCTOR Who The Waters of Mars is nearly upon us, and if you’re like me, your head is nearly exploding with excitement.
But if you are like me, you’re also looking for that special something to add an extra edge to tonight’s viewing – and here it is, the Waters of Mars drinking game.
Just keep your eyes open for these moments in tonight’s Doctor Who and sip down a few drafts of your favourite tipple as you spot them – if you’re still standing at the end I’ll be impressed. Think of me too as I’ll be trying to jot down some thoughts on here afterwards.
Watch Out For:
Doctor Who opening credits – take a swig
Gay joke, innuendo or inference – take a swig
The Doctor speaks while thrusting his underbite out – take a swig
The base on Mars is Bowie base, so someone references Ziggy Stardust or Life on Mars – down the glass.
The Doctor describes someone or something as brilliant – take a swig
The Doctor is treated with initial suspicion – take a swig
The Doctor’s initial warning about a situation or person is not heeded – take a swig
The Doctor runs – take a swig
The Doctor says I’m sorry or I’m so sorry – take a swig
The Doctor makes a wistful reference to a previous companion – take a swig
You successfully pinpoint the characters who exist only as cannon fodder (usually after they give a long speech outlining their history or future hopes) – take a swig
The Doctor’s sonic screwdriver fails to work at a key moment owing to a deadlock seal or something – take a swig
Someone mentions the Doctor’s song is ending or knocking four times – down the glass
One of the people you’re watching it with comments on how good David Tennant is – down the glass
A voice in your mind that sounds like a whiny six-year-old asks why David Tennant has to stop being the Doctor – down the glass
Doctor Who closing credits – down the glass
Doctor Who Christmas trailer makes you wish it was Christmas already – down the glass
I’m in a rush so that’s it! See you afterwards.
