Then there’s this bit of remixery which makes a complete hash of the Five Doctors in brilliant fashion:

Web TV series gain popularity but not cash

by Warren

The great thing about Web video is that with the tumbling cost of hardware, software and distribution, anyone can make a video. But practically no-one is making a buck at it, if this story in the San Francisco Chronicle is to be believed. In fact, many web video creators are using their work as a calling card to get into the TV and film industry, where there are still paychecks to be had. Makes sense, and that’s why I work in mainstream media and do web stuff on the side….I try to do the web stuff for fun and my own education, and if it helps further my career in one direction or another, so much the better.
