The Doctor Who Proms 2010

Well I thought that was tremendous fun, and firmly cemented in place my views about just how good Matt Smith is.

We plan to have a full review in issue 389 of CT, but in the meantime if anyone who went would like to let us have your thoughs, then please mail me at the usual address.

Win a pair of tickets for Time 4 - Time and Space!

Following on from our recent competiton to win a pair of tickets to the Doctor Who Proms, we’re delighted to announce that we have a pair of tickets for our Time and Space Convention at Riverside Studios, London to give away in an exclusive competition for DWAS Members.

To submit your entry, you must answer the following question:

Time and Space Guest Update

I am very pleased that Andrew Cartmel (script editor 1987 to 1989) will be joining us at 'Time 4: Time and Space' on 9th October 2010.

Something old, something new...

OK. Series 5 is well and truly over. I'm sure that we have all been re-watching it (or part of it) - if only to see how it all fits together. 'The Big Bang' certainly raised as many questions as it answered.

I know that some of you are uncertain how to judge the last two episodes (or the season as a whole) until we eventually find out about The Silence, River Song, etc...

Series 5. The Final Word

The final word on The Big Bang comes from Jane Evans.

Proms Competition Result

Thanks to all of you who entered our recent Competition. The answer was "The BBC National Orchestra of Wales".

The lucky entrant pulled from the hat was Stephen Murphy of Merseyside. We hope you have a great time Stephen.

Keep your eyes peeled for more exclusive Members competitons in the coming months.

The Big Bang. Fezes are cool!

And so series 5 is over. Thank you for your feedback over the past 3 months, I hope you've found this blog a useful tool in gauging the reactions of DWAS Members.

The Big Bang

Hmm... I'm not sure about this one - it certainly didn't try and over-do things as previous end of season 'epics' have, but a lot is currently left unresolved. I think that, until we know just why the TARDIS exploded and the cracks in time opened it will be difficult to judge the overall season theme. Cast all very good as usual though!

New Toybox Items

Professor River Song has the future Sonic - but why? A topical addition to the Toybox, where you can view other Sonics too!

Pennant Roberts (1940-2010) RIP

The death of Pennant Roberts has been announced.

Pennant directed no less than 6 Doctor Who stories: The Face of Evil, The Sun Makers, The Pirate Planet, Shada, Warriors of the Deep and Timelash. His reputation amongst fandom has been somewhat sullied by the last two, but all sorts of events conspired against him on them.
