Radio Times’ suggestion: Vote Doctor Who’s Dalek! for the cover of the century

I found the following image & suggestion on Radio Times, along with the information that the Periodical Publishers Association wants people to decide what’s the best magazine cover of the past 100 years.

Considering that Radio Times has almost 90 years of existence and Doctor Who is approaching fast to his 50th anniversary, I ask you to vote for this cover of the century: the front page from May 2005. You can vote once a day, every day until 30 September 2013… so remember to visit the voting link as often as you can.

Vote Doctor Who! Vote Dalek!

This classic Radio Times cover celebrated the Daleks’ return after two decades away, coinciding with the 2005 General Election.

We neatly brought these two events together by recreating a famous 1964 scene of Daleks crossing Westminster Bridge – and had to clear coachloads of tourists to get the shot. A memorable image, topped off with the cheeky coverline: “Vote Dalek!”.

The new TARDIS is ready

Do you remember Clara’s short trip into the TARDIS? It happened on Christmas, in the episode called The Snowmen. None of us could see the interior of Tardis, beyond the main console room, at least not yet, but that’s going to change soon.

Well… it was announced that the new Tardis is ready.

“We’ve built the rest of the Tardis!” says Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat of upcoming episode Journey to the Centre of the Tardis.

“The idea is in the title; we’re going to journey to the centre of the Tardis. We’ve got some great visuals for that,” he revealed at this year’s Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles.

Ashley Walters, who guest stars in the episode, backed Moffat up when Radio Times last spoke to him, saying “in our episode it’ll be the first time people get to see so much of the Tardis.”

The new interiors will be the work of production designer Michael Pickwoad, whose retro revamp of the Tardis control room got a positive reception when it was unveiled in December.

Series seven of Doctor Who returns about a month from now, with an Easter special on Saturday 30 March. The Journey to the Centre of the Tardis is expected to come fifth in the run of these new episodes, which would mean an air date of 27 April.

Ice Warriors confirmed to return in a new Doctor Who story by Mark Gatiss

Classic monsters the Martian Ice Warriors belong to the old Doctor Who series: they appeared in The Ice Warriors (1967), The Seeds of Death (1969), The War Games (1969) , The Mind of Evil (1971), The Curse of Peladon (1972) and The Monster of Peladon (1974).

But now, after almost 40 years, Doctor Who’s executive producer Caro Skinner has revealed that they will return in the third episode of the new series of Doctor Who, in a new story set inside a submarine, written by Mark Gatiss.

“We wanted to bring them back because they’re wonderful. In the mix of stories that we were planning for this year it felt as if doing something very bold with a monster that hadn’t been seen for a while would be really cool.

“Mark is an enormous fan of the Ice Warrior stories and came up with the idea. The sense of a monster of that scale and that size trapped in a really small, contained environment such as a submarine was a really brilliant story to be able to tell.

“They were such a beautiful original design, and are genuinely really scary in terms of what they look like as they’re coming towards you in that armour.”

Matt Smith will make TV directing debut: an episode of the Sky Arts series Playhouse Presents

One of the best news I’ve read today is about Matt Smith: he is going to direct his first TV show, an episode of the Sky Arts series Playhouse Presents.

The new run of one-off dramas will include Cargese, described by Sky Arts as a “unique piece of poetic realism which mines the tragic seam of adolescent love and loss”.

Directed by Smith and written by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, it stars Craig Roberts (Submarine), Joe Cole (Skins, The Hour) and Avigail Tlalim (The Town) as a group of disaffected teenagers in south London – Cargèse being a village on the west coast of Corsica which is wistfully mentioned by one of the drama’s characters.

Cargese begins filming next week and is scheduled to air on Sky Arts 1 on 25 April 2013. Smith will not appear in the programme himself.

You can find more information about the news in the Radio Times article. I wish him best luck. 😀

The British Film Institute’s Doctor Who at 50

Radio Times proudly announced that Saturday was a big day for Doctor Who (as well for the programme and fans) as the British Film Institute (BFI) launched Doctor Who at 50, its year-long celebration of the Time Lord. This year it’s the Doctor Who 50th anniversary, so from now on every month BFI will be screening a classic story for each Doctor and reuniting many luminaries from the world of Who.

To kick off, it was right back to the very beginning, to An Unearthly Child, the atmospheric four-part serial that launched the series on BBCtv in November and December 1963. And it was amazing how many guests were able to attend, people directly involved on that programme or with the era of the first Doctor, William Hartnell. They included (pictured above) William Russell and Carole Ann Ford (companions Ian and Susan) and Jeremy Young, who played the first villain.

These were some of the hottest tickets in the BFI’s history, quickly selling out. I snapped up four on the day of release for myself and three friends: TV producer Richard Marson, überfan Ian Levine (who secured several guests for the BFI) and Waris Hussein, director of An Unearthly Child. In the event, Waris was offered his own tickets and Ian invited his cousin Shirley Cooklin to join us.

Doctor Who 50th anniversary: All the surviving Doctors will take part in a very special adventure

Radio Times announced that a new Doctor Who 50th anniversary adventure will bring together all the surviving Doctors along with a number of their original companions, according to writer and director Nicholas Briggs.

Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann are explicitly confirmed for the 100-minute-long audio story The Light at the End, while Briggs has hinted that remaining Doctors Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and incumbent Matt Smith are “behind the project”, and that the Time Lord’s first three incarnations, originally played by the late William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee, could also feature.

Meanwhile, the multiple Doctors are not the only characters returning for the adventure. Listeners can look forward to “appearances from some much-cherished old friends from the TV series” as well as several of the original actresses who played the Time Lord’s companions.

Louise Jameson will reprise her role as leather-clad barbarian Leela (although listeners will just have to imagine that outfit) who travelled with fourth Doctor Tom Baker, while Sarah Sutton will return as scientist Nyssa, who crossed over between Baker and Peter Davison. Her successor Nicola Bryant, aka American student Peri, will be joined by Sophie Aldred as Sylvester McCoy’s streetwise companion Ace and India Fisher as Edwardian adventurer Charley Pollard, who accompanied Paul McGann’s eighth Doctor in a series of BBC radio plays produced by Big Finish.

Last, but not least, the Doctor’s arch-enemy the Master is back to “create mayhem”, voiced by Geoffrey Beevers who played him in the TV series as a decaying husk at the tail end of his final regeneration.

Due for release in November, the audio production comes as a standard two-disc pack, as well as a limited edition five-disc set, complete with two hour-long documentaries plus an extra adventure, The Revenants, performed by William Russell, star of the very first Doctor Who TV story.

BBC America initiative: The Doctor Who books

You may be thrilled to find out that BBC America launched yesterday a Whovian initiative:

Eleven authors have been commissioned to write ebooks for the British publisher Puffin, based on the eleven Doctors, and these will have a staggered release across the year, on the 23rd day of each month, so that the Eleventh Doctor’s story arrives on November 23, the date of the actual 50th anniversary.

To raise anticipation for each book, the identity of the writers – each one a big name in children’s literature – is being kept a secret. What we can tell you is that the first book, featuring the First Doctor, is called A Big Hand for the Doctor, and it has been written by Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl books, and  the man who took on the formidable task of writing some more Hitchhiker’s Guidenovels.

Oh, and on the eleventh of each month (thematic numbering, see?) there will be a promotional video on the BBC Worldwide Doctor Who YouTube channel, that features each author as they come up. Eoin’s will be out on Friday, and A Big Hand For The Doctor is available for pre-order for $2.68 for Kindle onAmazon.com.

Billie Piper won’t return as Rose Tyler for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary

Some time ago there was a rumor that Billie Piper will return this year for the 50th anniversary, but it was just a rumor. Nothing real, at least not yet.

Billie Piper says she “has not been asked” to take part in any Doctor Who 50th anniversary episodes, pouring cold water on the idea that her character, former companion Rose Tyler, might return to the show.

Matt Smith set the rumour mill turning this summer when he said: “If I wanted a companion from the past I would say Rose because I am good friends with Billie.”  But speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Piper, who first appeared as the Doctor’s companion in 2005 when the series returned with Christopher Eccleston, laughed Smith’s comments off as a joke.

“No.  I’ve not been asked.  I think Matt Smith said something in passing or in jest like, ‘That would be nice,’ and it became something, but no.” She said.
