Doctor Who


Disappearing Act:
Disappearing Act is a short story that was originally published in Doctor Who Files and later republished as part of Heroes and Monsters Collection.
Not a bad story involving an Ood, a special agent from the Galactic Enforcement Agency and a magic trick with the Doctor and Donna in the midst in all this.


10 Things You May Not Know About Kill The Moon:


In Turn Left in the reality where the Doctor had died, Joseph Long appeared as Rocco Colasanto.
Long later returned to Doctor Who in Extremis playing the Pope but when he met the Doctor, the Doctor was blind.
So in both cases the Doctor did not see Long at all as well as Long being in an alternate reality each time as the Pope turned out to be part of a simulation.


Bit sad if this is true. Tom Baker will always be The Doctor to me.

10 Things You May Not Know About Flatline:


In The Navy Lark (radio series) 14.10 Brain Pill, Sub-Lieutenant Phillips (Leslie Phillips) described a tall, scraggy looking twit with a beaky nose and ghastly haircut who plays the Doctor.
Chief Petty Officer Pertwee then asked “Who?” to which Phillips responded, “Yes, that’s right.”

This episode was broadcast on September 30 1973 which was in the gap between the penultimate and the final Pertwee Doctor Who seasons.


Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall has announced that Segun Akinola as the new Doctor Who composer replacing Murray Gold.



Big Finish has renewed Torchwood for a sixth season and under the title God Among Us.


The Navy Lark (radio series) season 14 finale The Talpinium Shell had the Master played by Jon Pertwee(!) says that if Una Stubbs married Doctor Who in secret she will be known as Shush You Know Who.
This episode came on 21 October 1973, almost eight weeks before The Time Warrior started the final Pertwee season of Doctor Who on December 15.

Several years later in 1979 Pertwee started playing Worzel Gummidge and Worzel was madly in love with Aunt Sally and Aunt Sally was played by none other than Una Stubbs!


Once Upon A Time:
Once Upon A Time is a short story that was originally published in the 2009 Annual and later republished as part of Heroes and Monsters Collection.
The Doctor and Donna discovers a book that changes every time someone reads it.
Although it feels like a familiar concept it still a fascinating story as the Doctor and Donna gets to the bottom of this.

How Avengers Infinity War Should Have Ended:

Includes Nebula played in that movie by my wife Karen Gillan who I love very much.
Also includes a cameo by a Dalek.


The Ghost of Shada:

Fan fiction audio read by Julian Bane.
This is a sequel to Shada as the Doctor visits the said prison planet.
A fascinating story in which it is about a Doctor who has gone through the Time War and his visit to Shada meshed with it.


It has been confirmed that there will be a 2018 Doctor Who Christmas Special.
To be directed by Wayne Yip and it will be first for Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.


The antepenultimate episode of Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators season 1 The Chameleon’s Dish had Frank Hathaway (Mark Benton) showing Lu Shakespeare (Jo Joyner) a little Yoda toy and ask her to guess what it is and she was not familiar with Star Wars.
Frank then gave her Star Wars clues only for her to say at the end “Doctor Who”.

Curiously enough Benton and Joyner had each bookended the Ninth Doctor era with Benton at the beginning in Rose playing Clive and Joyner at the end with Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways playing Lynda (Lynda with a Y) Moss.


Star Wars fan series Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager 2.2 Laser Trouble had a small cleaning droid saying “Exterminate impurity” in a very Dalek-like way.
