Tom Baker Returns in 50th Anniversary Special


ImageOn 20 November the Doctor Who Mind Robber reported on a claim by the Huffington Post that Tom Baker would appear in the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor. Baker was indeed telling the truth when he stated, ”I am in the special, I’m not supposed to tell you that, but I tell you that very willingly and specifically; the BBC told me not to tell anybody but I’m telling you straightaway.”

The Science of Doctor Who – Full Episode


The BBC has uploaded the complete episode of Brian Cox’s The Science of Doctor Who onto YouTube.

Brian takes an audience, with the help of celebrity guests, on a journey into the wonderful universe of The Doctor, in a specially recorded programme from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Brian reveals the science behind the spectacle and explains the physics that allows Doctor Who to travel through space and time. Fun, but filled with real science, it’s a special night for Who fans as well anyone with a thirst for understanding.

Brian is in the unique position of knowing The Doctor’s universe inside out as well as the reality behind the drama. When the TARDIS travels through time and space, Brian understands the physics involved. And when it comes to life on other planets, Brian knows the real science that could prove extra-terrestrial life might just really exist in our galaxy.
