Petition for Australian filming by Member of Parliament

Federal MP George Christensen this week put up a petition asking for a Doctor Who episode to be filmed in his native Queensland, to much media fanfare. His video presentation featured on the ABC’s Insider current affairs program this morning, and can be seen at

The actual petition can be found at, and deserves credit for mentioning the terror of the nation, drop bears. But somehow I doubt this bid will trump the one last month from director Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame: “I’m a huge Doctor Who fan. Just name a time and place and I’ll be there.”
