Well Professor C.- I had to make sure they weren't STALE or anything! Dern- these questions are short-circuiting my wiring-too many Brit pixels or something for my American screen. Hmm- Dr. Who is that wild-headed guy with the long muffler who kinda looks like Gene Wilder and leaps around in a phonebooth thingie that is a time machine.. can't remember his name. I think one of our really obscure channels had the series here years ago. Give us a hint... aw.. come on- remember we are pixel-impaired here. While looking for my VCR tape of 1997 Titanic- the whole bloody :-D shelf fell on my cranium Monsieur Randy-does it have something to do with wedding invitations? Rose's Ma is yacking to a bunch of snooty hens about Rose's de-voom nups and how the invites got screwed up or something? Now do I get to wear Lucile's nightie in Newport?! And NO-I did not peek at the flick- I was busy applying my icebag to the knot on my head! Never found the ^%#)*&[email protected]& movie!
Can't really help out with the main question but a couple of notes here.
Shel - The 'Dr. Who' you describe was Tom Baker, who was (if I remember correctly) the fourth 'doctor' - last count there were seven or eight. The tremendously imaginative series began in the mid-60's and ran for some thirty or so years. Besides Tom Baker, the Doctor has been portrayed by William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton (my favorite), Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker , Sylvester McCoy and, in the movies, by Peter Cushing. We used to get the show here in Houston but that stopped years ago. I have no info about the 'Doctor Who' adventure that involves Titanic. I believe there is a book out, tho'.
