In The Night Garden

When “In The Night Garden” meets “Doctor Who”?

Have you ever watched “In The Night Garden” and wondered if it could be any more creepy? I mean it’s totally about a sailor nicknamed “Iggle Piggle” stuck on boat in the middle of the ocean, so kinda creepy anyway. But what if “Doctor Who” was mixed in with it? More specifically, what if The Master from Doctor Who was stuck “In The Night Garden”?


Fleeing the Time War, Derek Jacobi escapes the wrath of the Daleks only to find himself in a special kind of hell…. a CBeebies TV show.

Don’t have nightmares.

Who should be the next England Manager? (From The World of cbeebies)

Over the last seven days it feels almost everyone is resigning their jobs. It started with a Prime Minister, and now the England Manager job is vacant.

This led me to wonder (possibly in a fit of post EU Referendum result depression) Who, in the world of cbeebies, should be the next England Manager?

The Voice from Sarah and Duck

Sarah and Duck TitlesLets look at “The Voice” from Sarah and Duck. Is he is a parent figure? Is he the voice of a shared consciousness between the characters? Either way, he seems to be a respected and possibly knowledgeable figure in their lives.

Sadly due to his only feature being a floating voice, he wouldn’t be liked by any media outlet (except possibly radio). Therefore he is out of the running for England Manager.

Iggle Piggle

He is the key figure in a crowd of various strange, amusing, and talented individuals. He is the one that appears to hold them all together, to the point that he is the last one asleep at night.

Sadly his lack of ability to talk could be unfortunate, but some may see that as an advantage.

Mr Tumble

But some may argue he should be the next Prime Minister.

Charlie and Lola

How about some sort of joint position? Charlie would be the sensible one that talks to the press… the players… other managers… everyone.

Lola would be the one that comes up with the tactics.

Sid and Rebecca from Lets Play!

Every week, Sid or Rebecca takes on a new job, and seem to do that job really well. These jobs seem to range from Nursing to being a Rock Star. Whatever it is they do, they seem to do it well. Therefore I would argue for another joint position, with both Sid and Rebecca in charge.

They pretend to do everything else well, I’m sure they can both pretend to be the England Manager.

Any other ideas to add?
