BBC America - Anglophenia has Doctor Who Rogues Gallery: The Rani. There are other Time Lords whose names are also their career status (the Monk, the Corsair) but these are inward-looking titles, describing little about their attitude to everyone else. You can’t be a Master without a domain, or a Doctor without patients (or a War Chief without a war, which says something about the mentality of that particular Time Lord). And then there’s the Rani....

Miscellanious News...


  • Doctor Who News - Classic Episodes Cardiff Screening
    The two recovered Doctor Who episodes Galaxy 4 - Air Lock and The Underwater Menace episode 2 were shown to an appreciative audience in Cardiff on Wednesday evening. Both episodes were recovered from a collector last year and their existence was revealed at a screening at the BFI in London last December. The episode of The Underwater Menace was shown in full at the Missing Believed Wiped event but only an excerpt of about 10 minutes from Galaxy 4 was played, making the Cardiff screening the first time the whole episode had been seen in the UK since its initial transmission in September 1965...
  • Digital Spy - 'Doctor Who' Steven Moffat: 'Amy, Rory exit was tremendous challenge'
    "We're always trying to work out how to get episode seven coverage in the newspapers," he explained. "Obviously episode one will [be written about], but how do you make [a later episode] a must-see?..
  • Peterborough Evening Telegraph - Peterborough convention is the place to be for sci-fi fans
    Screen legends including John Barrowman and the Torchwood team, Ashes to Ashes’ Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes, Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman and no fewer than three incarnations of the Time Lord himself – Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann - will be materialising for a celebration of classic sci-fi TV shows and films...
  • Metro - Daisy Lowe proves she's over Matt Smith as she's 'spotted with new man'
    Daisy Lowe has been spotted out on the town with a new boyfriend, having split from Doctor Who actor Matt Smith in November. The model, 23, was spotted at nightspot The Box with a mystery man, before they left to enjoy a private meal together.

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

Arrow of Time has 036 – Fraser McAlpine, Please Don’t Kill Us. This week we scrump some songs and invite the wrath of one Mr. Fraser McAlpine!  (Help.)

The Oncoming Storm has Episode 8: NA 6 - Choosing the Right Weapon. A cleaning lady. A child killer. That scary wiccan chick. What do they all have in common? Why, they're all discussed in the 8th Episode of The Oncoming Storm of course! Josh and Ashley are looking at Cat's Cradle: Warhead this week, a novel by former script editor of Doctor Who Andrew Cartmel. With someone who was that close to the television show, it's sure to be just like what we used to watch on the telly right? When you're done laughing at that little ditty, turn on Josh and Ashley as they discuss the beginnings of the"Dark" Doctor, the benfits of ignoring character dialogue, and just what it means if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of being "useful" to the Doctor.

A Mad Man with a Box has Dr. Phillip Serna/The Leisure Hive. On this week’s episode Dr. Phillip Serna of the Adventures in Time Space and Music Podcast and I debate if there is any recreation to be found in the re-creation machine of The Leisure Hive.

BrokenSea has Behind the Sofa – 1st 4 Episodes of Season 4. Join Stevie K. Farnaby (Producer / Engineer), Paul Mannering (Writer), and Mark Kalita (The Doctor) aboard the TARDIS, for a fun chat as they discuss the 1st 4 Episodes of Season 4, Production Delays, and the loss of Mentor.

The Memory Cheats has Episode 9 - The Power of Kroll. The Key to Time season holds special childhood memories for both Josh and Steven, but what did they think of one of the more maligned instalments in Season 16, The Power of Kroll? It was written by Robert Holmes and featured some classic Tom Baker moments, so it couldn't have been all bad, right?

Tid-Bits...

The Doctor Who Site has Big Chief Studios Meets The Doctor And Amy Pond. “A great day meeting Matt and Karen. Both stars were great fun, extremely complimentary about their figures and both in costume!"

Cheezburger Network has 'Til The Daleks Do Us Part.

RedBubble.com has Cymberman What-What? by boil147. For the Cybermen fans that dream of owning a smoking jacket.

Review's Roundup...

The Daily P.O.P. has Doctor Who and The Mists of Time. The Doctor and Jo have arrived on a dreary planet where the swirling mist plays with your mind. If you aren’t careful, strange things come out of the mist in the night. Ghosts from the past; unearthly specters still clinging on to reality yet unaware that they have passed on. When the travelers encounter a survey team stranded on the planetoid, they are determined to help, but it soon becomes apparent that one of them is determined to see that none of them leave and is prepared to kill to make certain...

TARDIS Eruditorum has A Well-Prepared Meal (The Two Doctors). When last we looked at this story the question was whether or not it functioned meaningfully as a Patrick Troughton story, and it was found wanting. Lucky for it, then, that its primary job was not to function as a Troughton story but as a Colin Baker story, a job that it performs markedly better at....

Siskoid's Blog of Geekery has Doctor Who 171: The Evil of the Daleks Part 7. The Daleks destroy each other in a civil war and the Doctor adopts Victoria....
