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.

Okay, so how does Gareth Roberts know I go to Rymans?

I thought it was a great story, one of those little gems in amongst the big stuff. Nice touch with the Van Gogh postcard on the fridge. And how is the Doctor going to explain the ring to Amy?

Christopher Eccleston talks about Doctor Who exit

In an article in this weeks Radio Times Christopher Eccleston talks about his reasons for leaving Doctor Who. He explains that he "didn't enjoy the environment and the culture that we, the cast and crew, had to work in" but that he is proud of his time in the programme as it "broke the mould and it helped to reinvent it."
