Please note that The Radio Times is growing increasingly spoilerish with their publication of episode plot details in advance of anything the BBC has officially released, so please think twice before you post in ‘News’ rather than ‘Spoilers’ something from the Radio Times.
Please see our Etiquette page for further information about how this site views spoilers.

@fatmaninabox – I just noticed it on twitter… I would so love to go to that… but I don’t think anyone else would want to go (well my sister, but she’s not good with travelling usually). 🙁 Also it would mean a pretty early start for me to get there and I’m not great with early starts. lol!13 February 2014 at 16:05 #25274Anonymous @

I am writing to you to give my thoughts and to offer my suggestions about the science-fiction drama “Doctor Who”
An idea has been created and titled “A Wild Endeavour” and I believe it to be incredibly impressive. I would therefore wish for it to become a reality rather than a simple idea that is waved away by the producers of Doctor Who and the BBC. Details regarding A Wild Endeavour can be found on their website (http://www.awildendeavour.com/) and on their Twitter account (https://twitter.com/AWildEndeavour).
Other Whovians alongside myself also find the idea of A Wild Endeavour quite attractive and would love it if the original idea of it becoming a new Doctor Who spin-off series becomes a reality.
The problem that A Wild Endeavour is faced with, however, is that only a very small amount of people are aware of it and it also requires a great deal of funding at a short notice just to increase its chances of growing. Further details on how to support the cause can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/573935592/who-is-who-a-wild-endeavour-the-pilot-episode
You can also support A Wild Endeavour here too: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/8960-doctor-who-a-wild-endeavour?locale=en
If you can in any way help promote A Wild Endeavour, you will receive the greatest gratitude from myself and many others. In my opinion, I think that A Wild Endeavour has the potential to be the next big Doctor Who spin-off series after the likes of “Torchwood” and “The Sarah Jane Adventures” With this in mind, the idea must be shared and promoted massively across the globe. Please help spread the word to all the Whovians around the world!
Thank you in advance and please do not hesitate to reply to me via e-mail, my Twitter account (https://twitter.com/ManeshMistry98) or contact A Wild Endeavour through their Twitter account.

@wolfweed – I hope with the ’50th Anniversary Collection’ that it will include both ‘The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot’ and the docudrama… otherwise its not really a collection of all the 50th anniversary things that were produced.20 February 2014 at 10:41 #25517Anonymous @

New recurring character to join The Doctor and Clara25 February 2014 at 02:59 #25745
@fatmaninabox – Insomnia……!!!
Could Mr Pink be a Science teacher? (Isn’t Clara a History teacher?)
25 February 2014 at 03:17 #25747janetteB @janetteb
Thanks for that link @fatmaninabox. I am quite excited by that little snippet of news. I look forward to seeing more of Coal Hill and am keeping fingers crossed that Ian will make an appearance. I also suspect that they will be giving Clara a “love Interest” outside or only occasionally inside the Tardis and yes, it would be very like Moffat to have him as the science teacher and Clara as the history teacher.

@wolfweed – I’m suffering a ‘flip’ of sleeping patterns at the moment. I’m about 12 hours behind (or in front) of everyone else. Went to bed at 13:00ish yesterday afternoon and got up at 21:30 last night.
@janetteb – It would be great if Ian did appear. Maybe Clara could be (falsely) accused of misconduct and be hauled in front of the school Governors 🙂25 February 2014 at 08:57 #25750Anonymous @

Now, we know that Moffat puts a lot of thought into character names, so … Danny Pink? What bonkers theories can y’all devise as to the meaning of that name? 😉 For me, it’s a lighter shade of red, and Clara had a lot of red markers in her episodes … that’s all I can come up with on short notice.
FMIAB, your link says he was in Gavin & Stacey – was he the one of Gavin’s crew who got it on with the red-headed Welsh girl (twice!) ?
PS Hullo Janette! How are things down your way?25 February 2014 at 09:28 #25753
Reservoir Dogs reference, I’d think. There was a reference to RD in Moffat’s Coupling, as well.
If he makes a joke about wishing his name was Mr Purple, we’ll know it’s a Reservoir Dogs joke.25 February 2014 at 10:04 #25755
@wolfweed – I’m pretty sure Clara outed herself as an English teacher – under the influence of the truth field at Christmas.25 February 2014 at 13:04 #25758
@bluesqueakpip – You’re absolutely right. Clara is an English teacher. (Damned insomnia!)
Trying to clutch at yet more desperate straws, I discovered that Daniel Pink is a real person. He’s the author of 5 books about business, work, and management…
Daniel Pink is an anagram of:
Leap in kind…….
Perhaps he’s a PE teacher…

@danmartinuk has an article up on The Guardian about Doctor Who’s male companions (and the comments are very sometimes hilarious in deciding whose love interest Danny Pink will be):25 February 2014 at 19:30 #25768Anonymous @
I feel we are all being mis-directed with the ‘Mister Pink’ trope. I’m still of the opinion that it’s more than a Reservoir Dogs reference. Could Moffat introduce a character into Doctor Who whose name is solely a one-note joke? (Unless he’s a one-episode joke?) How could that be, with Danny being another Cole Hill School teacher, and all the Unearthly Child tropes inherent therein?
I don’t think Moffat is designing the Doctor Who-niverse post the 50th anniversary with one-note jokes, neither with singular pop-culture references nor with one-note character-naming jokes.
So … why, I ask again, Danny Pink?26 February 2014 at 13:08 #25782

I don’t know why but when I heard that the new character was called Daniel Pink, I immediately thought of Danny Blue (Marc Warren – Elton in Love & Monsters) from Hustle. Maybe Mr Pink is a bit of a con-artist posing as a teacher?27 February 2014 at 15:55 #25829

I have mixed feelings about Samuel Anderson’s new character, Danny Pink. I’d like to know everyone’s thoughts on the rumors suggesting that he may be Clara’s new love interest.

The Doctor Who Experience is to debut a new walkthrough adventure starring Peter Capaldi.
The Cardiff Bay attraction will close the current interactive walkthrough – which features Matt Smith – in the autumn.
The Experience will then reopen at a later date with a new adventure, expected to feature new Who lead Capaldi.
The new walkthrough is currently in the early planning stages, with an exact date for the revamp yet to be set.
A TARDIS-style police box aimed at cutting crime and anti-social behaviour in Bournemouth as well as acting as a tourist attraction is nearing completion.2 March 2014 at 15:08 #260243 March 2014 at 16:43 #26071

@wolfweed thank you for all those posts. I particularly liked the photo of all the programme buyers sitting in rows D12 D13 etc. Looked like something from earth in 200 000 years! The article was interesting also -a remake of Dr Who? “Insane”? You bet. But would they (the yanks) do it?? I so hope not! Kindest, puro5 March 2014 at 12:09 #261086 March 2014 at 12:15 #26160
