Series 1 DVD Extras

The BBFC have released details of the extras included in the forthcoming Doctor Who Series 1 DVD boxset. With a combined running time of 65m 15s, it seems unlikely that the extras will be the Doctor Who Confidential caveats:

00:03:21:05 DESTROYING THE LAIR

00:04:49:05 DECONSTRUCTING BIG BEN

00:05:29:20 MOCKS OF BALLOONS

00:20:50:04 DESIGNING DOCTOR WHO

00:19:02:06 ON SET WITH BILLIE PIPER

00:11:41:23 CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON INTERVIEW

The BBC’s Official Doctor Who site has a reading group! 5 children from Ysgol Pen y Bryn, Colwyn Bay, Wales, were given a copy of Gareth Roberts’ Only Human which features the Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack. The book is well received by the kids, and is given 4/5 – cick the link above to see what they thought of it, although beware spoilers!

Finally, Exzibit.net has reviewed the Doctor Who Exhibition in Brighton. A very detailed article, it underlines that the exhibition isn’t perfect; however, the following excerpts might tell you just how good it is…

…The greatest spectacle and the reason highlight for many fans has to be the title star of episode six, Dalek. Perched at the top of a flight of stairs, the Dalek towers above all who enter its chamber. A small button at the base of the steps reads, “Warning: Do Not Press!”, tempting nearly everyone to disobey. Doing so causes the Dalek’s head to turn, it‘s lights to flash and the figure to shout words like “Exterminate!” and “The Doctor!”. Surrounding it are original Dalek models from their 1966 invasion of Earth, props of its mutant self and a smaller version of the Dalek Emperor from the final episode, The Parting of the Ways.

…Sketches and notes for Rose and the Doctor’s costumes, as well as the design of his Sonic Screwdriver (an ingenious device which can perform multiple functions from opening locked doors to fixing broken wire) are also on display. However, for new fans or those just feeling nostalgic, several light up consoles provide information on the previous eight Doctors and their assistants.

I WANT TO GO TO BRIGHTON!!!
