March of the Cybermen
The ever reliable icwales.co.uk features pictures of the new Cybermen in action!
On Thursday evening, the monsters took to the streets of Cardiff and shooting was visible from public house The Gatekeeper. David Tennant and Billie Piper were also on hand, watched by amused and well-oiled spectators.
And on the subject of the stars of Doctor Who, Digital Spy has reported that Billie Piper is hoping for “US Success” with the arrival of the series to the Sci-Fi Channel. And low-grade tabloid The Star quotes “a source” as saying:
“Doctor Who will be seen across America and this is bound to raise Billie Piper’s profile and win her a whole new army of fans. It will get her name known among the real movers and shakers and will definitely give her a chance of getting noticed by the people who make or break careers.”
Meanwhile, John Barrowman has told Radio Times that he’s getting a bit miffed about the description of Torchwood as a “naughty version of Who”
“Everyone says it’s the X-rated Doctor Who, but it’s not. It’s going to be Britain’s answer to The X Files.”
Today at in newswales.co.uk there is a feature on the Doctor Who Up Close Exhibition at the Red Dragon Centre, Cardiff Bay, which a massive 30,000 visitors enjoyed during the first 8 days! The Exhibition continues until February 28th, and today fetaures some new additions:
These include the evil Santas and killer Christmas Tree from the Christmas Day special, the Emperor Dalek and the actual costumes worn by Christopher Ecclestone and Billie Piper from the first series.
The exhibition is open 7 days a week from 11am to 8pm.
Finally, catch the very nice Julie Gardner on the BBC Official Doctor Who site talking to BBC Wales about Doctor Who’s sale to the US Sci-Fi Channel.
