Anglotopia.net has Doctor Whooligan Special Edition: Dalek, I Love You Author Nick Griffiths Interviewed. Nick Griffiths is one of those lucky b******** who has gotten to take his love of Doctor Who and turned it into a series of books.  Griffiths, who lives in Cornwall, detailed his passion for Doctor Who in his memoir Dalek I Loved You (a clever play on words based on a band from Liverpool called Dalek I Love You), striking the perfect pitch for those of us who shared his growing up of dreaming about travelling by TARDIS and listening to punk, post-punk and indie records....

Miscellanious News

  • Doc Oho Reviews - Why I love Doctor Who...

Tid-Bits...

honorarydoctor has The Morbius Build Diary Part IX: The HEAD of Morbius!. So onward to the final part IX of the build. After completing the the awesome fur application job and getting a foothold on the eyestalks, it was time to plunge head-first into brains, domes, wires and retro circuitry. It was finally time for.... the HEAD of Morbius!...

TDW Geeks has Stained Glass TARDIS of the Day. Craftster user and Doctor Who fan Xandrigirly took advantage of her stained glass class to make her own TARDIS....

Big Finish have uploaded the cover for 161. Doctor Who: The Butcher of Brisbane.

RIPT Apparel has The Organic Exterminators. This design is a parody of the infamous “Dalek” of Dr. Who fame. Who would imagine that cute forest dwellers had a secret desire to “exterminate” anything in their path.

Review's Roundup...

HeroPress has Doctor Who: The Android Invasion (1975). When it comes to Doctor Who, you can't help wondering if Terry Nation was a bit of a one-trick pony - away from this show he created some fantastic serials, such as Blake's 7 and The Survivors, but in the core Whoniverse his only lasting contribution - and, let's be honest, it was a rather major contribution, was the creation of the daleks and their mythology....

Doc Oho's Reviews has The Deadstone Memorial by Trevor Baxendale. Cal McKeown is suffering from terrible nightmares. He wakes in the heart of the night, blood seeping from his eyes, screaming obscenities and flinging himself bodily into the furniture. His mother is at her wits end until a stranger rushes into her life. A man with a Gladstone bag full of sweets and comics, a man with a million and one crazy ideas, a man who calls himself the Doctor…

Adventures with the Wife in Space has Invasion of the Dinosaurs. Up until now, Sue thought that Marc Bolan was the only 1970s T-Rex that mattered…

Squabbling rubber (Gary Gillatt) has The Underwater Menace episode 2 & Galaxy 4: Airlock. "Hopefully you will accept that I’m being more honest than churlish if I make the observation that, had Doctor Who fans been invited to vote for two missing episodes to be miraculously returned to us, this pair would have been near the bottom of the list. The words ‘The Underwater Menace Episode 2’ have surely never caused anyone a rush of blood to the head. And most, I think, would have been hard-pressed even to put a name to the third instalment of Galaxy 4...."

The TARDIS Newsroom has its own place in Second Life, come and drop in for a virtual Doctor Who World of adventure at Paradox Island.
