Thursday’s news

Doctor Who

  • Chats (probably nicked from press release archives, cos it’s The Metro) with former Who guest stars.
  • John Barrowman talks about series three of Doctor Who and series two of Torchwood. He’d like the latter to be more adult.
  • David Tennant talks about series three, too.
  • Derek Jacobi is to appear as “The Professor” in the third series of Who, too. Horrible flashbacks to Ace. Urk.
  • I’ve found the Ainsley to my Nigella. I said Immortal Beloved was 25% State of Decay, 25% Mawdryn Undead, 50% The Romans. Someone else argues it’s more a mix of State of Decay, Mindwarp and The Savages. Ooh, flavoursome.
  • David Tennant is 13th on a list by New Woman of the world’s sexiest men.

Media journalism


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.
