Just. Wow.

Benny was there at the start of Big Finish, and I hope that she’ll be there right at the end. By that time Jason Haigh-Ellery’s country estate will have been turned into a retirement home. Benny will long ago have hung up her trowel, preferring instead to walk the halls. Matron Summerfield will do her rounds every evening. It will take some time, because there will be a lot of corridors. She’ll look in on the carefully-ordered Gary Russell wing, shake her head at the amazing noises coming from the Briggs Suite, and laugh at the gossip coming from the Richardson Lounge, where a group of actors are lingering over yet another amazing lunch (at Big Finish Towers, every meal is lunch). As she passes, a voice will be saying "Of course, the great thing about audio is that you can do anything." And she’ll nod. Because you can, and they did.

So, I was reading some Doctor Who fanfic today, for purposes of research (I’m on a panel at NineWorlds about the intersection of fanfic and licenced material.)

Well, I wasn’t reading the fanfic, so much as I was taxonomising it. I’m surprised by the lack of intersection.

So, what do people…

From Doctor Who Magazine #475: Actually, I found this almost a year ago but didn’t think of sending it directly to DWM. That image is my crop! I just assumed the term would be out of use by this time.

Yay! Doctor Who Magazine invented twerking! Or Dan Abnett or I did…

Out in shops now, the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine includes Steven Moffat’s preview of the new series - naming all the writers. There’s an interview with Terrance Dicks, while Andrew Cartmel speaks to the writers of Season 26 - Ben Aaronovitch, Ian Briggs, Marc Platt and Rona Munro.

Plus, I got to interview the show’s current production designer, Michael Pickwoad, who told me all about the four TARDISes he supplied for The Day of the Doctor (yes, four!) plus lots of other cool stuff.

Ten years ago today - 18 July 2004 - recording began on “new” Doctor Who. The first scene shot was of Christopher Eccleston chasing a pig in a space suit. 
The above is a feature I wrote for Doctor Who Adventures issue 277. And I wrote a bit more about this as part of my thing choosing one image from each calendar year of Doctor Who.
