"And now we are prepared to resist you."

So apparently I need some sort of Doctor Who/Three Musketeer crossover. I'm aware that this has been done before with Church and Crown in the Big Finish main line - and quite wonderfully too. I enjoyed Church and Crown a lot.

However, after watching the new Three Musketeers and seeing James Corden (Craig in New Who), we decided to make a day of it. Now we're watching the Disney version, which will be followed by the Micheal York version. Except, watching the opening credits of the Disney version, Mem realized that Holy Shit, one of her favorite movies has Paul McGann in it.


Not only that, but he's the shrieky, wimpy guy who's chasing after D'Artagnan. It's slightly scarring actually, to realize that is the Doctor. Well, will be the Doctor. This movie came first. Still, very scarring.

At the same time, now I want more Musketeer/Doctor goodness. Come on. The Master could be Cardinal Richelieu. It would be awesome. I know there's a Tim Curry Master prompt on the anon meme. Actually, come to think of it, I've considered writing for that prompt with the Three Musketeers in mind. Except I've got too many fics lined up to write. Sigh. Someone write it for me? I'd love you forever. <3

Now I'm going to continue watching the Disney version in peace and try not to think to hard about the casting of certain characters. -_-;;;

Luckily for me, I don't know that much about The Three Musketeers, so you can't trick me into writing it! :D

All I really know about it is that there are in fact four Musketeers rather than three, and what little I learned about it from Albert the Fifth Musketeer (it was a sort-of-French cartoon from when I was small), namely: Richelieu=bad guy, Queen=the smart one, King=doddering one, then swordfighting.

*raises a Brigadierly eyebrow* *still really needs a Brigadier icon -_-;;;* Interesting.

You should definitely watch the 1993 Disney version of the Three Musketeers though. It has Tim Curry at his absolute villainous best. And it's awesome. And apparently also has Paul Mcgann in it as the shrieky, wimpy guy. ^_^;;; Seriously, he screams like a little girl. He doesn't even sound or look like Paul Mcgann... Both my mother and I did a double take when we saw the credits and then when we saw him.

I love you. I just thought you should know. And I adore the icons. <3

Have some pictures, since I can't seem to find a video of his scenes.

Man, he doesn't even look like himself when he's making the crybaby face. XD

He doesn't. And that hair. Plus, you haven't heard his voice. I wish I could find a clip of his scenes. Sadly, I couldn't find any. T_T

Though I did see a bit on wiki about how Tim Curry was originally considered for the part of the Eighth Doctor. :o Now that would have made the awful movie much more interesting.
