Doctor Who action figures

Begin the countdown to Christmas week with some uplifting news:

Doctor Who

  • The Guardian interviews Billie Piper. Apparently, she calls David Tennant ‘David Ten-inch’. That’s presumably a reference to the size of his action figure.
  • The Sun is sticking to its story about The Rani appearing next series, despite official BBC denials.
  • There’s a blow by blow account of the series three trailer, complete with pictures, over at

British TV



  • Rob Buckley

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
