Rock’n’roll Timelord

As mentioned elsewhere, UK music magazine Q features a review of the new series of Doctor Who! Although no time and date are revealed (of course we all suspect now it will be Saturday March 26th), the article reveals Christopher Eccleston portrays “a fairly normal kind of bloke…able to talk to monsters in their native tongues – replete with trendy leather jacket and wry sense of humour”, and that Billie Piper “…can hold her own in the company of esteemed actors”.

The article goes on to praise Russell T. Davies for the “regeneration”, and the first glimpse of the Dalek in Episode 6.

The article is no doubt aimed at the usual Q reader – 20+ music lovers with an interest in quality film, television and books, students with a progressive taste in music.

The press campaign begins, expect to see Doctor Who marketing everywhere for the next few weeks, and interviews targeted at particular audiences…

The Q article is written by Boyd Hilton, and appears in the April 2005 Edition, no. 225.



A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
