Your Morning Linc: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS Clip, River and Jack Want a Spinnoff, Steampunk AT-AT, and the Cost of Being Iron Man

Well, despite its valiant efforts, the mockingbird that just would not stop singing outside my window last night has not deterred me from getting a good night's sleep, and waking up ready to share some of the Internet's geeky goodness!

1. Doctor Who: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS Clip

Next week's episode has been long anticipated by Whovians for generations (re-generations?). When Clara goes missing inside the Blue Box, it's up to the Doctor and a questionable salvage team to find her. Word is that we are going to see the heart of the TARDIS itself, many nods to the past, a library containing a book on the Time War....and yes.....the swimming pool.

Here's a clip, which does nothing to make me stop wanting Saturday to come as quickly as possible:


2. John Barrowman and Alex Kingston Want a Jack/River Show

What do you get when you cross a time-traveling bi-curious madman with a time-traveling, overtly sexual madwoman? You get a show that I'm pretty sure could only be called "Sexing Through Time". Doctor Who alumni John Barrowman and Alex Kingston, who work together on the CW's Arrow, seem to have really hit it off an want to make a spinoff show starring Captain Jack Harkness and Professor River Song.

Also in the works: Innuendo, the Musical.
As Barrowman, who is still hurting over his 50th snub and is pessimistic about Torchwod's return, explained to TVAddict:
“Then as we talked more, we realized that we’re both born on the same day.  We’re both March 11th babies and we have so much in common.  We like a lot of the same things and our attitude towards stuff is very, very similar.
“It struck a chord with us because that’s why River and Jack are very similar characters, in their attitude and their fun and their aggression, we are the same in real life – which is really ironic.  So we struck it off."
 Frankly, I think they should make a 60's-style sitcom and call it "Hello Sweetie!"

3. Crushing Rebellion With Industrial Revolution: Steampunk AT-AT

Because intercontinental railroads are for wimps, a pretty insane and really cool-looking steampunk AT-AT has popped up on Flickr.

Dubbed Captain Bayley's Mechano-Perambulator, its creator, named Mark, apparently made this as an engagement gift for his fiance. If this is the kind of gift she'd appreciate, I'd say that girl's definitely a keeper. And you know this bad boy can go toe-to-toe with a Mechanical Spider any day.

Let's see Will Smith hook this with a harpoon and tow cable.

4. The Cost of Being Iron Man

Think you need to be a billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist to wear the suit? Well, you're absolutely right. MoneySupermarket has detailed the real world cost of being Iron Man (big ol' infographic below):

I'll be setting up my Kickstarter campaign soon...

And that's it for now folks. Hope you all continue to have a fantastic morning!
