Peter Jackson, another Peter, another Jackson

Sir Peter Jackson indicates he might be directing a Doctor Who story in an unusual manner. Bonus points for heading off the inevitable jokes about it going on too long.

Heaven Sent

Is it me, or was the music riffing on Beethoven’s 7th? (Not his 5th, as one might think.)

Lucy the Australopithecus

Google Doodle today for the 41st anniversary of the discovery of Lucy the Australopithecus, the oldest hominid we know.

Doctor Who started with troublesome cave people, and Primeval did the obvious adventure of a time-travelling villain targeting humanity’s earliest common ancestors, but I wouldn’t let that stop me. And not just because I want to see mammoths and smilodons.

A bit further forward, you could use some of the prehistoric adventure hooks from this RPGnet thread. The secret of fire gets a mention in the sixth hook.

An Australopithecus on the TARDIS might be trouble...
