Shadowlocked has Five ways to fix the Daleks. The problem with the Daleks is that their iconic status can lead to that small feeling of disappointment if their latest story falls short of expectations. There has been a string of Dalek classics over the years – Genesis Of The Daleks. The Evil Of The Daleks. The Daleks' Masterplan. Revelation Of The Daleks. Even the stories that polarise opinion such as Resurrection Of The Daleks, Death To The Daleks and Bad Wolf/Parting Of The Ways have an awful lot to recommend them....

BBC America - Anglophenia has Ten Heartbreaking ‘Doctor Who’ Deaths. Reinette, Madame De Pompadour, The Girl In The Fireplace, a precursor to the Amy Pond story about a girl who knew the Doctor as a child, and then met him as an adult, but the story of Reinette does not end well for the Doctor. He promises her a trip to the stars, but overshoots, and returns as her body is being taken out of the palace at Versailles....

Cosmic Hobo has Behind the Green Door. This blog entry, as originally envisaged, was to take you behind the scenes of a day's recording of The Scarifyers. You'd follow every minute of the recording as it took shape, gasp at directorial hiccups and thespian tantrums, and thrill as we finished the recording with seconds to spare...

Day Of The Cockroach by Steve Lyons

Podcasts and VBlogs...
Beware most podcasts are of an adult nature and are not suitable for children.

Two-minute Time Lord has 2MTL 264: Who Should Win the Hugo?. Will Who reign supreme at the 2012 Hugos? I thought I knew who I would vote for, were I a Worldcon member, but then I wavered not only over a non-Doctor Who nominee, but also questions about the nature of the awards themselves.

Gallifreyan Embassy has Doctor Who: Podshock 268. New companion, promo trailer, other news, feedback, and more. Hosted by Louis Trapani, Dave Cooper, Graeme Sheridan, and Taras Hnatyshyn.

Bigger on the Inside has Episode 88. The With "The Curse of Fenric" and "Survival," the classic era of Doctor Who has come to a close, and so ends a major chapter for Bigger on the Inside. Join Dan and Mike as they discuss what Sylvester McCoy brought to the program and what he was lacking, Ace's impact on viewership and future companions, as well as Anthony Ainley's legacy as The Master and his charm. Before the episode ends, however, the guys also dig into the "Search Out Space" episode from the children's program Search Out Science, and "Dimensions in Time," the Doctor Who / EastEnders crossover.

Tid-Bits...

Nothing Tra La La? (Simon Guerrier) has AAAGH! and the alien delegates. AAAGH! meets the alien delegates from The Daleks' Master Plan - a reference to a Doctor Who story from 1965-6 that's largely missing from the archive, so perfect for our 8-12 year-old readers. It featured in Doctor Who Adventures #263, out last week. The art is by clever Brian Williamson, the editing by Paul Lang and Natalie Barnes..

RedBubble.com has Defying Gravity by inu14.

RedBubble also has Hitch-hiking Doctor by dmbarnham. When in doubt, refer to the hitch-hikers guide, even the Doctor refers to it.

Review's Roundup...

Siskoid's Blog of Geekery has Doctor Who 142: The Power of the Daleks Part 6. It's been some time waiting, but in the end, the Daleks act exactly as they've always done and start exterminating everyone. One by one, guest characters and extras alike are mowed down in what is actually the program's first on screen Dalek massacre...

Bigger On The Inside has Tragedy Day. Arriving on the planet Olleril in the 56th century the Doctor and his companions find themselves menaced by the cult of Luminus, who secretly run the planet. Soon separated and with the Doctor replaced by a robot duplicate they find themselves placed in one danger after the other....
