If you’re a fellow Whovian, I just thought you should know that you should not travel with your sonic screwdriver replica from The Wand Company.

Its a conspiracy! Brexit is a fiendish Mekon plot! Or maybe not, but in a post-Referendum world where those of a Leaving persuasion congratulate UK astronaut Tim Peake with the caveat “No need to do it again”, ambitions for the space industry seem to be coming down to earth.
Filming started on series ten of Doctor Who today. But time-warping back to 1969, we were watching the end of the original season six. The Second Doctor was gurnned out of existence in the closing minutes of The War Games. In glorious black and white that Goth chap tells the Doctor his appearance will change. He’s a…

I don’t know if there are anymore…
There are a couple of Doctor Who alumni in today’s Birthday Honours list. Disgraced Prime Minister Harriet Jones of Flydale North becomes a Dame - or at least Penelope Wilton, OBE does. The award was made for services to drama.
A Dalek from one of the Peter Cushing Doctor Who movies that was given as a prize in a Sixties breakfast cereal competition has sold at auction for £38,500. The buyer from London saw off competition from bidders in New Zealand, America, Australia and Belgium.
A new interview with Steven Moffat has revealed that they had offered the role of the twelfth Doctor to a Black actor but that things “didn’t work out”.

The first Welsh-language comic in 20 years opens its pages at the Urdd Eisteddfod tomorrow. Mellten, or Lightning in English, seeks to entice readers with a quarterly publication.

Are you hiding behind the sofa comfortably? Good, then I’ll plug you in. This Tesla coil version of Ron Grainer’s iconic music is delightfully sparky.
The actress who played Clara Oswald’s Mum in Doctor Who is at the center of a row after being sent home from a temporary job for not wearing high heels. Nicola Thorp was due to work as a receptionist at Pricewaterhouse Cooper (PwC) but was told to wear shoes with a 2-4 inch heel.
In latest news from Radio Times it appears that Chibnall, who will be taking the reigns from Moffat in 2018, is already planning big changes to how the show is made, primarily through the rumoured adoption of the ‘writers room’ system seen in the US where the core writing team is made up of a number of full-time…
Apparently former Doctor Who and Purple Man David Tennant frequently wears a hoodie because it makes people stay away. It seems they think he might want to murder them, but despite that he never got a part in Taggart. That’s just one of a selection of facts Radio 4 have assembled ahead of a production of John Osborne’s
Personally, I had no doubt that Capaldi would be making an appearance in the first episode of the new Doctor Who spin-off, considering this synopsis recently released by the BBC:

The BBC have finally revealed the new companion and that is Bill, played by relative unknown Pearl Mackie. So far it appears she is being heavily based on Donna as her first appearance shows her to be a quite gobby person who can’t be quiet.
