    Happy New Year and welcome back to Doctor Who. It’s kinda been a while. Thank you to those who have been using the site, and my apologies for being a bit absent for most of this year.

    I don’t know much about this but, yes, the deadly pepper pots are back. The Doctor is imprisoned halfway across the universe. On Earth, the sighting of a…[Read more]

    Thanks @geoffers

    I’ve spammed them.

    Apologies to everyone for being AWOL but life has kinda got in the way recently. I will get back to normal service before the New Year episode.

    I’m planning an update to the site (as the version of WordPress it works on is out of date). It will probably annoy some but will be a good framework for the future.…[Read more]

    I quite like this from tonight’s watch-along.

    I once came third in a Doctor Who pub quiz because I got questions about my own episodes wrong. #clockdown— Steven Moffat (@StevenWMoffat) May 6, 2020

    A little extra made during our lockdown, for after the Twitter watch-along. Written by Steven Moffat and voiced by Sophia Myles (of course).

    Damn, just after posting something nice, something sad happens. Florian Schneider, co-founder of Kraftwerk, has passed from cancer. A massively influential career. I mean, music wouldn’t be anything like it is today without those guys messing about with boxes and wires to make…[Read more]

    Something to cheer the soul. I really liked this. Despite all the lockdowns etc. I love how we are now getting raw performances. Featuring Colin Hay who was the vocalist and guitarist in Men at Work (a Scottish born person, I should add).

    Unfortunately it was the virus that got him – which is especially sad as there was probably no long-term build up and maybe very little family allowed to visit him.

    However, it was lovely to see “Dave Greenfield” and “Golden Brown” trending number 1 and 2 on Twitter in the UK last night.

  • Craig replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    Dave Greenfield passed away yesterday. You might say “Who?”. He was the keyboard player for The Stranglers. And if you haven’t heard of them you might say “Who?” too.

    In 1977-78 my parents wouldn’t let me buy this new punk thing that was happening but I loved it and my friend’s big brother was allowed to buy their music and the Sex Pistols, so I…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic General Theatre thread

    @blenkinsopthebrave I’m really looking forward to that one as I never got a chance to see it.

  • Craig replied to the topic General Theatre thread

    @blenkinsopthebrave and everyone else.It’s actually available for almost a week from now. And there are two versions.

    The Frankenstein play (directed by Danny Boyle with music by Underworld) is available to view until 7 May with Benedict Cumberbatch as the monster.

    But you can also watch it (maybe if you want to watch it twice) with Jonny Lee…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic Dalek

    @blenkinsopthebrave Yeah. I love how creative people are being while in lockdown.

  • Craig replied to the topic Dalek

    In a very fun new short prequel to ‘Dalek’, we are introduced to alien researcher Sven, Adam’s predecessor at GeoComTex. Sven will feature in the forthcoming ‘Dalek’ Target novelisation.

  • Craig replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @winston @blenkinsopthebrave

    I think this is an uninterrupted version.

  • Craig replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    Not really music but this made me laugh a lot – I think I posted the energetic video to “Life During Wartime” by Talking Heads a short while back. We all need a laugh at this moment.

    Thursday 30 April – to mark the 15th anniversary – the world will be watching “Dalek” at 7pm UK time. Join in the fun on Twitter with the hashtag #TheMetaltron

  • And this is the new epilogue written by Paul Cornell and narrated by Lauren Wilson, who played the scary little girl with the balloon who eventually got trapped in all our mirrors.

  • ‘Shadow of a Doubt’ was specially created as a prologue to ‘Human Nature’ and ‘The Family of Blood’, released as part of #DoctorOfMine, the worldwide tweetalong of this two-parter during the quarantine.

    Written by Paul Cornell and starring Lisa Bowerman as Bernice Summerfield, from many Big Finish audios, ‘Shadow of a Doubt’ was home-produced…[Read more]

  • We’ve never covered this great story by Paul Cornell, based on his book. But there’s a watch along tonight as we’re all in quarantine , so hopefully you will have some comments afterwards about the story of one “John Smith”.

    It’s 1913, A schoolteacher called John Smith dreams of adventures in time and space … and war comes to England…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @winston Hope the Saturday night show is good.

    The funny thing is, most of them just shoot against a blank wall or a bookcase. But Matt Smith was in a converted church. And, as I know he lives near me, and if that is his home, I think I know exactly where he lives now. Maybe not the best thing to do on TV.

    But it was excellent to see them all…[Read more]
