What’s up, Doc[tor Who]?

Goodness! A lot of time has passed and a lot of stuff has happened. Let’s do a quick catch-up, shall we? Books!

So very very ashamed), here is a little look at what Doctor Who projects I've been involved with this year... This month, I popped back to Doctor Who Magazine for a little look at the Season 19 Blu-ray. That's in Issue 533, which is on sale ... More

On Going Viral…

  Yesterday, this happened. Or to be completely accurate, this is still happening, the screenshot’s from this afternoon and likes and RTs continue to build by the second. The whole thing took me slightly by surprise. My children found it hilarious, texting friends to say ‘Now Mum’s trending in Canada!’ ‘Now Mum’s ... More
