Web series come and web series go. And then there is Untitled Web Series About A Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time, a Doctor Who parody whose second season won’t be a season but a movie featuring several familiar sci-fi actors, including Doctor Who‘s Sylvester McCoy!
Back in 2012, what began as the fictional series Inspector SpaceTime within the real-life NBC sitcom Community became the Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time, named by USA Today as one of the “Best of TV on the Web in 2012“.

Now here comes the really good stuff.
Not only will Untitled Web Series return to our screens, it will regenerate as The Inspector Chronicles: Untitled Motion Picture About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time — a feature-length film that counts in its cast notable stars of UK and US sci-fi and geek shows, including:
Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who, The Hobbit trilogy) — Yes, the Seventh Doctor himself will guest-star as Uncle Roderick, whose “true identity is shrouded in mystery!”
Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate: Atlantis) — Voyager‘s Doctor Zimmerman will portray mysterious family physician Bernard.
Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Doctor Who Big Finish) — DS9‘s Leeta will play “endearing sister” Annabelle Wagner.
Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory, Blossom) — The Amy half of TBBT’s Shamy, the Emmy-nominated Bialik will feature as “Red,” the voice of the BOOTH (Bio Organic Omnidirectional Time Helix), The Inspector’s sentient space-time machine.
Starring series creator and writer Travis Richey (Community, Pretty Little Liars) as The Inspector, Carrie Keranen (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Fringe) as his associate Piper Tate, and series writer Eric Loya as archenemy Boyish the Extraordinary, the film will pick up where Season One of the series left off.
