Kilts: Could They Save the Known Universe?

Whilst researching yesterday's post How To Wear A Kilt, I discovered something that struck me as rather odd. Rather a lot of Time Lords (of UK tv's "Dr Who" fame) wear the kilt (or at least some form of tartan which, for the purposes of tenuous connections leading to outrageous conclusions, will do me)!

See for yourself.........


Patrick Troughton clearly wearing tartan trousers....




.....but his mate wears a black and white kilt (!).




Jon Pertwee wears an Inverness cape.





Tom Baker wears full regalia (okay, probably NOT a Dr Who scene...)




Colin Baker wears a tartan coat and baaaaad hairstyle!





Sylvester McCoy wears a tartan scarf and hatband combo.



David Tennant tells it like it is!




Couldn't find Matt Smith wearing anything tartan...
so, here's his assistant Karen Gillen
 (who's from Edinburgh, my home town, by the way!)
wearing a shirt that is definitely tartan!





Yes, I know that he's John Barrowman, which is Torchwood,
not Dr Who, but it's close enough for me!





And then I saw this..........



......a very obviously doctored photo (geddit?)!


And it made me do some more research.


Whereupon I found this......







And this.....!







Which obviously led me to this.....







All this evidence (which is clearly real and factual) can only lead me to one conclusion, and that is that.......

[SFX drum roll..........are you ready for the grand reveal?........

.............................you sure you're ready?............

.......it's pretty mind blowing stuff, do you want to get a nice cup of tea and prepare yourself first?..................

.............everybody ready....................???.....................

..............okay, here goes.....................................

...................... the BIG announcement...............(it's gonna change your life for sure)..........




THE KILT IS THE ONE THING THAT TIME LORDS, ALIEN SPECIES AND STORM TROOPERS ALL HAVE IN COMMON,

AND

THAT IT MIGHT JUST BE THE KEY TO SAVING THE WORLD AND, INDEED, MANKIND FROM A DREADFUL END!


TaaDah!







THAT ISN'T A DREADFUL END....
(anything butt, hahaha!)



THIS IS A DREADFUL END.....!

Hey, this was a great post, I especially like the pics of David Tennant and John Barrowman, those two certainly know how to pull of a kilt :)
Thanks for pointing me in this direction

...I thought the second to last picture was a bit cheeky, or am I giving it a bum (w)rap? I'm sorry, but he looks a bit anal retentive from that angle. Okay, I'll stop being such an arse and give you credit for an interesting bit of Macresearch!

(p.s.: As you can see ladies, nothing is worn under the kilt - it's all in perfect working order)!

Right then, first things first. I am back and thought it would be a very good idea to see how things are going on your blog.
This was indeed a life changing posting, butt the end cracked me up. Very clever and yep, I found out that 'Torchwood' is an anagram of 'Doctor Who.
The kilt saving the world? 'Make it sew'.
Kind wishes, Gary :-)

Hi All, thanks for comments!

-AndrewG.:In other words, it was a surprise *ending* hahaha!!!

-Emma: thanks for stopping by, Welcome! Okay, Andrew doesn't get to go to conventions!

-Quasi: "those two certainly know how to pull off a kilt" - I'll have to go away and explore the mental image you comment conjured up! lol!

-Kizzmyartz:Yeah, I think he's finding it a wee bit windy - that would be the beans he had for tea then! (You're up late!!!) ;)

-Klahanie:You're comment came in at the tail-end there, you got the bare facts right, though, and brought a hole new meaning to "make it sew" - "The Singers canna take it, Captain!" hahaha! :)
