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 blokeâ€¦able to talk to monsters in their native tongues â€“ replete with trendy leather jacket and wry sense of humour”, and that Billie Piper “â€¦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.
