Doctor Who News no image

Lone Slitheen Theory…

Bit of a turn up for the books? The Doctor discovers someone he thought was dead is alive? A Slitheen?

Acccording to daily redtop The Sun, Annette Badland returns in Episode 11, Boom Town, written by Russell T Davies. The Sun report shows an image of Christopher Eccleston holding a newspaper with the Margaret Blaine MP character photographed on the cover.

I don’t know if I’m the only one disappointed by this revelation, but on a plus side the ZIP HEADS ARE BACK! So that’s bound to get the younger viewers excited!

Meanwhile, news of the censorship of this weeks Doctor Who is doing the rounds in the newspapers; hot on the back of claims by Christopher Eccleston that his skin suffered due to overwork on the series (see Tuesday’s news), the Daily Mail and the Daily Express both mention the “flirting” of Captain Jack with their usual firebrand sensibilities… all will no doubt be revealed over the next two weeks.

Finally – we’ve got 5 episodes to go until the end of the series! Time does indeed fly when you’re having fun, and so far overall the series has met the high expectations of But with loose ends such as “Bad Wolf” to tie up hopefully by the end of the series, plus the expected references this week, we fully expect the remainder of the series to be “the trip of a lifetime!”
