Tweets Of The Week

Who Vs The Hare, the ultimate Lost theory and a peek at the first page of the Pushing Daisies comic in this week’s tweets.

What were you doing last Saturday? The correct answer is watching Doctor Who of course, but what were you doing just before settling in on the sofa? Basking in the uncharacteristically glorious April sunshine? Ducking indoors to avoid the sudden thunderstorms? Solving just one more room on Portal 2 ? If you’re Edgar Wright or Mark Gatiss you were watching the BBC’s frankly unsettling new Saturday tea-time gameshow Don’t Scare The Hare , presented by The Gadget Show ’s Jason Bradbury and starring a giant animatronic/sometime-shonky-CG bunny.

Yes, we would have much preferred to see the brilliant Lis Sladen tribute and Don’t Scare The Hare switch places too, but Don’t Scare The Hare provided ample entertainment in the run-up to the eleventh Doctor’s second coming thanks to the animated commentary between Wright and Gatiss:

@ edgarwright Will kids come back from behind the sofa for Doctor Who after Don't Scare The Hare? Am convinced this quiz will end in an ED-209 massacre.

@ edgarwright 'Don't Scare The Hare' on BBC1 looks like the first prime time game show to be made on mushrooms. I am getting a contact high.

@ Markgatiss @ edgarwright I am frightened.

@ edgarwright @ Markgatiss Can you do a DW episode where this terrifying Hare trundles off the game show set & into the Whoniverse to f**k up some Daleks?

The Weeping Angels ain’t got nothing on the Hare.

@ OldRoberts953 It's funny when adults say 'kids won't understand the story in Doctor Who'. If there's one thing kids understand, it's a story.

@ NoelClarke I quite rate @ Elizadushku was always a faith fan rather than the blonde one. Suppose I'll never get to work with her though... Hmmmmmmm!

@ charltonbrooker People who don't invert the Y-Axis on 1st person videogames shouldn't be allowed to play videogames.

@ Mark_Sheppard You've all been very kind. I got to be on the Tardis, say "bigger on the inside" AND "Doctor...Who exactly? Not bad.

@ wilw I may have jumped out of my seat and danced like an idiot when the #DoctorWho theme started tonight, but I'd never admit it.

@ russelltovey I am proudly, officially, the voice of "Doctor who Confidential".... Eeee... I love DW x

@ warrenellis #doctorwhospoilers the 12th Doctor, Ray Winstone, beats alien to death with sonic screwdriver, yells "oo's the Doctor now?"

@ stevendeknight Hmm... Maybe... RT @ ryan_curtis @ stevendeknight hey can you write in a shoutout to fringe in the next season. Maybe someone called astrix?

@ simonpegg I bought an old skool style Dengar action figure from Toys R Us today. It cost about 700% more than it did in 1980. #galacticinflation

@ Paul_Cornell 'Twin Destinies': another excellent Stargate Universe episode. Terrible that the best Hard SF in... ever, really, is already axed. #fb
