Doctor Who up for awards & DVD news

Whoa! An update you say? Hmmm…yes i’ve managed to drag myself away from working on the new version of Kasterborous which is due anyday soon, and between work and Christian being away has devoted my full attention for the last few weeks, so dont be alarmed by the lack of updates as the site will be in full swing very very soon. We have also had to change hosting as the old hosting was beginning to buckle under the strain.


At last it seems the new show maybe getting the due credit it deserves. BBC online reports that Doctor Who has been shortlisted for three awards in the National Television Awards.

The show is up for most popular drama as well as best actress and actor for Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston respectively.

The final winners will be announced at a big ceremony on the 25th October, so fingers crossed that the show claims at least one of these prizes. To see a full list of nominations you can visit the BBC link here.

Meanwhile its escaped my attention (seeing as our usual eye for news is sunning it up on honeymoon in Crete) that they released the cover for City of Death on DVD. While it looks quite green, its another decent cover from Clay Hickman, one of a number of impressive growing DVD covers in the collection. The DVD is out on November 7th and includes this list of attractive features:

Commentary – with stars Julian Glover, Tom Chadbon and director Michael Hayes.

Paris, W12 – behind the scenes featurette.

Studio featurette – recently discovered behind-the-scenes footage.

Prehistoric Landscapes – montage of unused landscape and spacecraft model shots.

Chicken Wrangler – comedic montage of the trials and tribulations of trying to film the chicken sequence.

Eye on Blatchford – spoof investigative documentary.

Original Next Week caption and continuity voiceover from end of part four.

John Cleese/Tom Baker Skit from BBC Christmas Tape.

Douglas Adams Featurette on flying to France.

1980 Doctor Who Annual (PDF for PC or Mac).

Staying with DVD, The Web Planet was released earlier this month on October 3rd for anyone keen on William Hartnell.
