In which we try to review and show pictures and clips of the best bits from everything Gavin & Stacey actress Joanna Page has been in on TV, radio, theatre and film (we're drawing the line at audio books). As life challenges go, it's not quite up there with Danny Wallace's Yes Man, but it's worth doing.

Review: Doctor Who - The Day of the Doctor

The Day of the Doctor

In the UK/US/anywhere in the world, even hermits' caves: Saturday 23rd November

For weeks now, we've had pictures and interviews and trailers and more trailers and minisodes and clips, ramping up the tension and expectations for the 50th anniversary special of Doctor WhoThe Day of the Doctor. Secrets, such as Paul McGann's Doctor getting a minisode of his own, had been kept and the fact the episode was even showing in cinemas in 3D meant naturally expectations were high for huge revelations and cameos that would BLOW EVERYONE'S MINDS! EVERYONE'S!

Of course, given:

  1. The BBC's budget
  2. The inexorable march of time aging anyone from the old show almost to unrecognisability

It's only a few weeks now until the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who arrives on our screens (and our 3D cinema screens, too). Although we know very little about it in terms of plot, we do know Steven Moffat's written it and it will feature Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Louise Coleman, Billie Piper, John Hurt and, of course, our Joanna Page.

And here they all are talking about it. Well, apart from Hurt and Pipes. Apologies to everyone who doesn't live in these fair isles if it turns out that these are only viewable in the UK.

Today's Joanna Page: Breathless

Joanna Page in Breathless

It's a period drama set in the gynaecology unit of a London hospital – it's Breathless, ITV's not-at-all-obvious answer to Call the Midwives. But it's got Jack Davenport and Natasha Little… and Joanna Page, who's married to Shaun Dingwall in the show. And here's some pics. Different, huh?

The show should be starting this autumn.
