Welcome to the MonkeyHouse.

I figured i'd take point from the "Doctor" here, or someone else when they were ready...as this is my fist foray into doing this online and all. i'd hate to come up with a premise with no legs my first time out. :)

i tried contacting the doctor but haven't gotten a reply back yet. Till we hear from him, you have any thoughts or ideas of what we could include in the story? Think we could fit the Brigadier in?

Well, obviously, it'd have to be an Earth-based adventure ('scuse me for switching journals) in order to get the Brig in...and i've always fancied the Silurians as baddies...how about you?

*trying to recall silurians* those creatures in the caves that were mostly reptile, right? that might be a good idea cause I don't think the 4th doc went up against them, just 3rd and 5th. And they got caved in by the brigadier in 3rd doctor timestream so there's plenty of room for story there. Maybe the brigadier could call the doctor back to earth to investigate something and it turns out to be the silurians behind it all.
Good ideas, old thi...er...Sarah. :)

I am NOT an old thing.

And yes, I think there's definetly a story there. Silurians were the original inhabitants of Earth, but were forced to abandon the surface and go into suspended animation underground because the surface conditions couldn't support life anymore. So they hibernated, but unfortunately overslept...and upon awakening, found that mankind had supplanted them as the dominant species on the planet. The Tardis crew could return to Earth for whatever reason and be compelled by the Brig to investigate some "mysterious gobbely-gook" that I have'nt thought of quite yet. :)

Could leave the "mysterious gobbely-gook" up to the doctor to dream up. 4th doc always seemed good at coming up with that sort of thing.

Maybe the Silurians could be grabbing Humans for experiments/slavery perhaps? And the tardis crew could come back to earth for a brief holiday? I dunno. I don't want to dominate the storytelling.

don't worry about dominating, with three people participating we'll all get a say in how the story goes. experiments sounds good. maybe we could figure out how they got out of the caves too.

OK, sounds good to me. Now we just need to get the Doctor and the Brig cracking on this. :)

hey, how about the brigadier? maybe we should contact him and see if he's up for this silurian bit, eh? (OOC hope you can pardon my absolutely horrible attempts at a british accent, I'm only american)

As another American, I can absolutely tell you that you sound positively Canadian. :) And yes, we should absoultely get The Brig in on this, since he figures into be a big part of the story.

Canada's close enough I spose. hooray for Canada! :D

Hooray indeed! Now, how exactly are we going to find the Brig?

Either you or I can comment on calapine's journal to say hi and tell him about the ideas we've come up with to see what he thinks about it.

I just went & left a post with a link to this thread. So that's done then. Don't know why I didn't think of that in the first place...I must be more lacking in sleep than I thought.

Good deal then. Now we just got to wait for results.

I read your post and link. You want to leave one similar on the doctor's journal too?

I thought you already ledt the Doc a message. You want to leave another?

Posted by: harrysullivan (harrysullivan)
Posted at: May 27th, 2005 05:55 am (UTC)

I left a message but not a link because I hadn't talked to anyone else in the timeline yet. I'm thinking we should leave him the link as well so he knows where to find our discussion. Sound good?

Done & done. :)

oh good. hey, once the doctor and brig get in on this, we could even use the little chatter on my journal as a starting point. I could post a link to it in the community to start off and then we could go from there. The doctor and brig will most likely parley about the "crisis" that could be averted and then the doctor could join us in the tardis.

Quite possibly....the little "Search through the Tardis" could be an interesting Harry/Sarah adventure too...we could use parts here, parts there...oh, bollocks. Whatever we do, it's gonna wait till morning, because i'm off to bed. :) Night!

Here's some biographical info I found on Silurians online so we all can be brought up to speed...

The Silurians were Earth's first sentient species, were scientifically advanced, and lived during prehistoric times. At some point, the Moon approached close to Earth, threatening to cause geological upheaval, and the Silurians went into self-induced hibernation to survive.
The name Silurian is a misnomer and in the original story was coined and used exclusively by humans. The misnomer arose because the race was identified as belonging to the Silurian period when first encountered in the Third Doctor serial Doctor Who and the Silurians. The Doctor, in a later serial, mentions that Silurians should more properly be called Eocenes. However, that term appears to be equally inaccurate. The Silurians are seen using dinosaurs as guard animals, and by the Eocene, dinosaurs had long become extinct (although there is some merit to the suggestion that the primitive Silurians co-existed with dinosaurs and their domesticated versions survived with them). In some of the New Adventures novels, the term "Earth Reptile" is offered as the "modern" term for them. Whichever period the Silurians actually belong to, it is the first name applied to them that has stuck.

Silurians are scaly, cold-blooded reptilian humanoids, with yellow eyes and oval mouths. They are also possessed of a red third eye that has various abilities, such as stunning or killing their opponents, signalling each other, or opening doors keyed to emanations from the third eye. The eye glows when it is active.

In their first appearance in Doctor Who and the Silurians, a group of Silurians were awakened from hibernation by the energy from a nearby nuclear power research centre. The Silurians then attempted reclaim the planet from humanity by releasing a deadly virus and attempting to disperse part of the Van Allen Belt. Both plans, however, were thwarted by the Doctor. Despite the Doctor's best efforts to broker a peaceful solution, the Silurian base was destroyed by UNIT on Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart's order.

Another group of Silurians turned up in the 1984 serial, Warriors of the Deep, where they allied with their aquatic cousins, the Sea Devils, in a second attempt to reclaim Earth from the humans. This attempt took place in 2084. Curiously, on this occasion the creatures used the terms "Silurians" and "Sea Devils" to refer to themselves, despite these terms previously being purely human phrases.

Other appearances by the Silurians in the Doctor Who spin-off media include the Virgin New Adventures novel Blood Heat, which featured an alternate reality where the Silurians conquered Earth, the Big Finish Productions audio plays Bloodtide (with the Sixth Doctor) and The Coup (with UNIT). In The Coup, set in the present day (but see UNIT dating controversy), the Silurians attempt to finally make peace in the humans. How this links with the events of Warriors has yet to be explained.

Appearances
Doctor Who and the Silurians - January 31 - March 14, 1970
Warriors of the Deep - January 5 - January 13, 1984
