Ever wondered when someone is finally going to get around to staging Doctor Who burlesque show? Come on, we all have.

It’s a programme that so readily lends itself to a burlesque interpretation. Well, good news; the wait is over; Don’t Blink: A Doctor Who Burlesque is performed by the Tango Gorilla Theatre, the Chicago-based troupe responsible for the critically acclaimed The Empire Brings Sexy Back.

The show follows the Doctor who – see what I did there? – is trying solve the mystery of why he has suddenly become a she.  Along the journey there are rollerskating Daleks, Cyberwomen and the odd naked Ood.

Hurry though, as the last show is on the 31st of May; tomorrow evening. Face it; opportunities to see a naked Ood are very rare - and perhaps that’s something we need to look at as a society – so if you’re in Chicago then go see it - just try not to choke on a jellybaby.
