    Strictly speaking, this is not Doctor Who news, but there is a Doctor Who connection. The first episode of a new drama, Collateral, airs next Monday on BBC2 and, according to the Radi0 Times (dead tree edition), it is a thriller which poses questions about the experience and treatment of migrants and immigrants in Britain. The writer is David Hare and the Who link is in the cast list, which includes Billie Piper, Carey Mulligan and John Simm. Chances are with those credentials that it will be worth investigating.

    Hi all, I am new to forums and looking for ways to keep up with the latest Doctor Who news. I was just wondering what sources everyone uses to find out the latest news on Doctor Who and whats their most reliable source when not using this forum.

    Devilishrobby @devilishrobby

    Don’t know if anyone else has seen the Mirrors article about there being discussions on possibly moving Who to a Sunday slot. Not sure if it’s a fake news article but my gut reaction was Nooooooo to me the Spiritual home of Dr Who has always been early Saturday evenings. In my own personal opinion a lot of BG Who’s problems started when they started messing with its time slot and moving it to week days.

    @trinajoanne  I have found Blogtor Who (blogtorwho.com) to be the best of the unofficial news sites for collecting legit stories/press releases about all aspects of the Whoniverse, including other projects the cast and crew are busy with.

    There may be some truth in the article, because if series 11 broadcasts in the autumn, it faces a constantly shifting time-slot scheduled around Strictly Come Dancing (The Beeb’s big Saturday night show). Also if shown on Saturdays, it will likely overlap with The X Factor on ITV. Yikes!

    mirror article – who moving to sundays?

    @trinajoanne — personally I find the best Who news source is the mighty @wolfweed.

    Speaking of which, I don’t have a massive problem with Who moving to Sundays and can even see the wisdom in it. Saturday evenings is just too much of a ground zero for ratings these days. Even if you hold your own there, if something beats you then it can feed into a narrative of ‘failure’. Who was a good fit for Saturdays back when it was 25 minutes and tucked between the sports results and the ‘proper’ evening telly. Sundays, by contrast, is a less competitive field and it’s also a good slot to have with a more captive family audience.

    However, I have seen compelling arguments against moving it, namely that it might stuff up BBC America’s Saturday nights and also mean that Australian viewers won’t be seeing the story until early Monday.

    And am I the only one who doesn’t see the point in a special edition of Enemy of the World. I know it’s not exactly a story that I’m in love with, but surely there’s other classic stories that deserve a bit more remastering love first?


    wolfweed @wolfweed

    Too kind, @jimthefish …

    @trinajoanne I find twitter to be the best news source for Dr Who…

    Originally, Dr Who did even better for Davison by moving from Saturdays. However, putting it up against Coronation Street in the late 80s was a bit of a suicide mission.

    I can’t remember what the rumours are for what’s currently getting reconstructed. I think it may be ‘The Crusade’ having it’s missing eps animated.

    The ‘Enemy’ Special Edition may have something to do with the passing of Deborah Watling but I’m not sure.

    It’s released on the 19th of March.

    I agree that the spiritual home of Who has always been Saturday evenings, but Saturday evenings have changed – they’re now more Variety orientated, with big, often live, shows. The big ‘family drama’ slot is now Sunday from about 7.30 – they might be thinking of popping Who in the 8pm pre-watershed slot, for example. Currently, Who is adding on a third of its viewers via IPlayer, plus there are regular complaints about the ever-changing start time. So maybe a more regular slot on Sunday would be better – especially when a lot of people who haven’t watched for ages are likely to tune in to see what Jodie Whittaker’s first female Doctor is like.

    That would actually be a very good slot – Call The Midwife is there now, and doesn’t exactly get low ratings. 😉

    @toinfinityandbeyond Well not really Dr Who but the BBC. From what I heard he left due to ethical issues but was honourable enough not to mention it to the press so the BBC should have been grateful to him for that. Would love to see his take on Macbeth.

    The excitement when I saw that Peter Capaldi is coming to Australia! The disspointment when I discovered he’s not coming to Sydney. 🙁

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    He probably choked because he heard that the series 9 soundtrack is finally being released…

    Missy @missy


    Thanks for that. He is such a comedian, I am really going to miss this man.



    gamergirlavatar @gamergirlavatar

    @wolfweed What a great video, thanks for uploading it. Peter is so funny, every interview I’ve seen him in makes me laugh. I’m really going to miss him.

    Missy @missy


    He didn’t need a script either.

    gamergirlavatar @gamergirlavatar

    @missy I know, he’s so incredible. I’m making it a new goal of mine to see him at comic con some day.

    Part six of the recently aired (here in North America anyway) James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction is on time travel. There’s a fascinating segment with Peter Capaldi. After rooting around a bit, I came across a Radio Times piece from last week on this segment and which includes the following extract:  

    “It has all these other levels of philosophical and reflective nature that make it very, very rich,” he said.

    “People always ask me what is it about the show that appeals so broadly. The answer I would like to give – and which I’m discouraged from giving because it is not useful in the promotion of a brand – is that it’s about death.

    “And it has a very, very powerful death motif in it which is that the central character dies. I think that is one of its most potent mysteries because somewhere in that people see that that’s what happens in life.

    “You have loved ones and then they go, but you must carry on.”

    Especially interesting comment on the branding!

    Missy @missy


    I wish that I could see him at one. *sigh*


    wolfweed @wolfweed

    ‘I’m a trailer. But probably not the one you’re expecting.’

    A nice trailer for series 1-10 on iplayer was aired before the England vs Tunisia match.

    I Imagine that the ‘true’ Who trailer will drop at San Diego Comic Con, as some of the key cast and crew will be attending a panel (sometime during July 19-22)…….

    wolfweed @wolfweed

    Somebody finally uploaded it…

    janetteB @janetteb

    thank you for the link @wolfweed that brought a much needed smile to my face. How well that is put together, to include all the companions as well as Madam Vastra, River Song and Rory all in thirty seconds is impressive.
