THE COLBERT REPORT Conjures DOCTOR WHO's The Beast
On last night's episode of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert added another page to his considerable Geek Cred resume by giving some face time to none other than The Beast from the Doctor Who episode "The Satan Pit."
In his piece "Christine O'Donnell Witch Test," Colbert played an old clip of Delaware Senate Republican Party nominee Christine O'Donnell discussing her past practice of witchcraft on an episode of Bill Maher's series Politically Incorrect. O'Donnell mentioned that "There was a little blood there" during a midnight picnic on a satanic altar and Colbert immediately followed with The Beast's picture, interjecting, "Of course there was, because Satan is a messy eater."
The Beast, unfortunately, could not be reached for comment on his appearance on The Colbert Report or his past association with Christine O'Donnell.
