Our local doctor who fan club has been organizing screenings of the new series 8 episodes as they air, and last week we decided would also screen one episode of the classic series as a “sample” to each doctor’s era (so that people who want to start the old series…

Oh! Excellent choices - and your reasoning for State of Decay is brilliant. But I’d swap Vengeance on Varos - despite the immense brilliance of the extras on the special edition DVD - for Revelation of the Daleks. That means you have Daleks, Cybermen, the Master and Davros in your selection. And Revelation looks more exciting due to location filming, the snow and it’s clever director.

But I also recommend doing the whole damn lot, in order. Much more revealing - and satisfying - than dipping in and out.

The whole lot in order is certainly the best recommendation! :D I definitely need to do a marathon at some stage, but I keep putting it off incase the ongoing missing episode rumours turn out to be true since if it is I’d rather wait for them.

Please, for all our sakes, tempt fate :)

Anonymous said: When you get round to redoing the classic and audio companions can you add in Oliver Harper, was so disappointed he only first appeared after you stopped doing the icons the last time round. Would love to see him now that you're resuming them.

Hello, anonymous person! Are you by chance Simon Guerrier in disguise? I only ask because, when you asked me this question, I was already midway through drawing Oliver, in response to an earlier request from Simon.

Anyway, to celebrate this neat coincidence, here’s a mini Oliver!

And here’s an icon version, in case you or anyone else wants one.

It was not me, in a false moustache and head, honest. But I am thrilled by this.

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…
