@Team_Barrowman: I will not be involved in the 50th Anniversary Episode of Dr WHO. JB
Here's a video interview from TVC night with Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, where they are asked about the 50th. Nothing is disclosed, as usual.
And, apparently, when asked about the 50th, Tom Baker told a fan the following:
[Spoiler (click to open)]"Funnily enough i was with Peter and Sylvester the other day, and they said they hadn't [been asked to be in it] and they asked me and I said the same. However I think it's been confirmed that David Tennant is in it? I think it would be a pity to ask one and not the others, but Peter Davison has written a short comedy video"
Speaking of Sylvester McCoy, he was one of the participants on last night's Doctor Who edition of Celebrity Pointless now on iplayer for the next 6 days (if you can, show your support for the show by watching it there. If you can't, here's an international version). Info and list of participants here.

David Tennant's new drama Broadchurch (with Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Euros Lyn and James Strong) will première on ITV on 4th March. Here's an interview, which also has a trailer.
Chris Chibnall has been interviewed by Starburst about Torchwood and Doctor Who and Beyond, including Broadchurch.
David Tennant has also been narrating the 3 part documentary series Penguins - Spy in the Huddle which airs on BBC1 at 9pm on Mondays. Eps 1 and 2 should be on iPlayer. He's currently filming The Escape Artist which also stars Sophie Okonedo (Liz 10).
It's been announced that Nick Hurran will direct the 50th anniversary special!
Meanwhile, filming for An Adventure in Space and Time continues. David Annen played original TARDIS set designer Peter Barachi and Nicholas Briggs donned a wig to play the original voice of the Daleks Peter Hawkins.
The Mind Robber was a story of being trapped in the Land of Fiction. Along the same lines as "In the world of the dream" from Inception. Yeah, I know Inception mashups are passé but it works fairly well. And as with Hartnell, there aren't enough Troughton vids either.
( That"s Fiction vid under the cut-Collapse )

Ever wondered what it would be like if Jamie and Victoria (which I often tout as one of my favourite Classic Who Pairings) were in Skakespeare's Romeo and Juliet? No, neither did I but it's the amusing result of what I got from seeing wander_realtai use this Drabble Generator found here. I wasn't expecting this result since it is so different from her own yet it is suprisingly interesting to read. The odd word might not make sense, probably due to the fact that half the time I think I actually forget what an abjective is. ;) But with without further Ado (about nothing), here is William Shakespeare lost masterpiece... Jamie and Victoria!

( I"m a little bit in love with the cartoon under the cutCollapse )Click on the pic (or here) to see the rest of her gallery; she's got an amazing series chronicling the possible appearance of Eight during the war, and she's currently working on one with all of them feeding birds. I'm a fan.
