Here’s the latest picture – courtesy of the UK’s Radio Times and copyright of the BBC – of the interior of Dr Who’s brand new TARDIS. Wow. Nice and shiny!!
In astonishingly brilliant news, Neil Gaiman – author of The Sandman graphic novel series and many other brilliant books – has written an episode of the new Dr. Who series. It won’t see the light of day until Matt Smith’s second season which is approximately 14 months from now, but fans – including myself – are already on the edge of their seat.
The news was revealed in an acceptance award message he sent to the UK convention “SFX Weekender” (he won Best Comic at the SFX Awards). Here it is in full:
“Over the years SFX, and its readers and their votes in the polls, have always been very kind to me. I thought I’d return the favour with what used to be called, in journalistic circles when I was a boy, a scoop. As anyone who’s read my blog knows, I’m a big fan of a certain long-running British SF TV series. One that started watching — from behind the sofa — when I was three. And while I know it’s cruel to make you wait for things, in about 14 months from now, which is to say, NOT in the upcoming season but early in the one after that, it’s quite possible that I might have written an episode. And if I had, it would originally have been called “The House of Nothing”. But it definitely isn’t called that any more.”
