Trips not taken

I had heard of most of these unmade modern Doctor Who episodes, as they came from the Davies era and were discussed in The Writer’s Tale. Indeed, I’ve swiped a couple as adventure ideas. And the near-miss 50th anniversary special is pretty well known too. But the idea of a prequel to Sleep No More was news to me.

Space Opera

Space Opera is the result of Catherynne M. Valente taking up the challenge to write an SF novel based on the Eurovision Song Contest. She attempts to explain the event to American readers in this introduction.

Here, of course, we know its mighty power already.

Thanks to Randall on for the link.

New Doctor, new outfit

A first look at the Thirteenth Doctor in costume and yes, she has a big long coat that will flap when running. That’s what really matters. Also statement earrings, a somewhat Mork And Mindy rainbow shirt and braces combo, and a slightly 80s vibe all round. I imagine it will vary episode to episode, especially after Twelve had that flashy coat he hardly ever wore.

Just a few weeks until the Christmas special... and hopefully a trailer to follow, though probbaly not a big one as the series returns in the autumn.

In the meantime, there is already fanart from comics creators and other artists.
