New K9 Toy + Round Up
You may already be aware of the Character Options Â£19.99 Radio Control K9 – but prepare to meet his big brother!
Based on the original K9, the 10″ version is due in November and will retail at Â£39.99. We’ll have more news on this release as it comes – and thanks to eyeofhorus.org.uk for the tip off.
Elsewhere, K9′s current best friend Sarah Jane Smith, aka Elisabeth Sladen, will be appearing at Norwich Puppet Theatre on Sunday in “Doctor Who: An Audience with Elisabeth Sladen and Friends”, part of a celebrity panel of Doctor Who stars celebrating the DVD release of Genesis Of The Daleks. BBC Norwich reports that also in attendance are Terry Molloy (1980s Davros) and writer Paul Parsons, author of the controversial “The Science of Doctor Who”.
Mickey Smith’s website that deals with “bog monster” conspiracies, www.whoisdoctorwho.co.uk has relaunched with the title “Defending the Earth! Because Friends Stick Together” in a blog format with media clips AND a fun little game that demands you search for the Doctor’s Sycorax sword. Pop-ups will need to be enabled to play the video clip.
Spoilery bits now, and again thanks to eyeofhorus.org.uk for spotting this one. The Daily Telegraph has reported on a trip to the set of Episode 2, Tooth and Claw. It’s quite a long article and is based on young Louis Norman’s trip to the set, who has been a fan since his father:
“…bribed him to give Thunderbirds a rest and watch a rerun of a Tom Baker episode on UK Gold instead. He was hooked.”
There’s also a few brief words from guest star Pauline Collins who will appear in the episode as Queen Victoria:
Her Majesty – in the form of a black-clad Pauline Collins – seems highly amused. What, I facetiously ask, is her motivation? ‘My motivation,’ she smilingly replies, ‘is pretending to be Queen Victoria.’
Although the article isn’t entirely accurate in its summary of the show, it is nevertheless readable and interesting to see the genesis of yet another young fan. but, as I said if you’re prone to spoilers, even innocent ones, try not to look at the pictures…
