News to end the week by

Doc girls

I’m off again today. Stu_N knows where. Stu_N knows why.

Doctor Who

  • A cracking bit of art, illustrating the various female companions down the ages. Isn’t Liz Shaw cute, although the David Tennant is pretty cute, too. [via Behind the Sofa]
  • Talking of cartoons, an 13-part animated version of the show is to appear as part of Totally Doctor Who, according to the Mirror (scroll down). Anthony Head will guest-voice.
  • Confirmation of what Paul Cornell’s story will be about in series three.
  • PJ Hammond talks about Sapphire and Steel and Torchwood. He touches in passing on the fact he’s writing an episode for series two and that the ITV revival of Sapphire and Steel has fallen through.



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.
