Nobody Human Talk to Me

Oh I know how he feels sometimes...

I am going to hazard a guess and say that this one was made earlier on in the run - we know that the Eleventh Hour was not made first, and somehow I got the impression that MS and KG were not quite as settled in with their characters this week. There was quite a bit of Troughton-ism in the TARDIS for example, rather than Smith-ism.

The Beast Below

Well, just 24 hours to the next episode..

This time the Doctor and Amy visit a version of Britain thousands of years into the future. (I wonder if we have adopted the Euro yet?)

As before we would be very pleased to hear your views. You can contact CT via the contact form or by emailing

It's Gone Down Well Hasn't It?

New Who seems to have gone down well doesn't it? The media response has surprised me. Generally speaking I despise the press - I believe that they invent non-existant news stories to match their own political agendas and prejudices, and exert a worrying influence over public opinion.

Naming favourite Doctors

Lots of people ask why we never answer the question "Who was the best Doctor?" when representing our members on TV and Radio. The answer to this is simple. We all like different Doctors! If I were to say the best Doctor was Doctor 3, I would put us against all those who enjoy Doctor 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and 11!

Publicity is Go!

The arrival of the new Doctor has bought the DWAS into the public eye once more, with the society featuring on various radio stations over the weekend. The DWAS appeared on BBC Radio Coventry, BBC Radio 5Live, the BBC News Channel, BBC Three Counties Radio and in The Independent on Sunday. Our involvement on ABC Radio is included on the site.

Daleks, Cybermen and Internet Explorer 6

The Doctor gets to fight many enemies in his travels. As a webmaster there are fewer monsters in my life on a day to day basis. There is one though. Internet Explorer 6!

The Eleventh Hour. More of your thoughts.

Ivan Philpot: First impressions were how filmic the whole production felt. The switch to HD had already occured so it probably wasn't just that that made the whole thing feel bigger, but others in the room were also asking what the changes to filming were.

The Eleventh Hour. 24 Hours On....

I went into last night's Series 5 Premiere with an open mind. Have to say that I thought it was a superb episode. Matt Smith has nailed it straight away, Karen Gillan was excellent, the new TARDIS is sublime, etc etc. Rather than go on further I thought I'd post some of your thoughts that have made their way to CT Towers by email.
