The Web Series That Isn’t Inspector Spacetime!
Crikey, Inspector! The first episode is up!
If you haven’t been following along, this is the “Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time.” It’s a Doctor Who parody – but a little more complicated than that.
The original parody – called Inspector Spacetime – comes from the TV show Community on NBC. Great show, funny parody. Then the actor who played Inspector Spacetime on Community decided to turn the character into a webseries – except for the fact that he did not own the character of Inspector Spacetime or have permission from Community or NBC to turn their character into a webseries.
The lawyers got involved and put a stop to actor Travis Richey’s plan. But Richey didn’t want to give up on his webseries idea, so he simply changed the name to that much longer name up there. But he’s kept the ‘Inspector’ part, as well as several other ideas/concepts from the Community parody.
So he may not be able to call his webseries ‘Inspector Spacetime’, but Richey’s just gonna go ahead and make it anyway. More power to him, I say! The world needs such a fun Doctor Who parody.
