Cover art for the forthcoming Doctor Who Series 2 Volume 2 DVD has been released by the BBC & 2Entertain.
Shipping without extras, it features Tooth and Claw, School Reunion and The Girl in the Fireplace. Release date is June 5th, and a complete series boxset will be available at the end of the year… you can read a few more details about it at the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site. The disc is available from Play.com for just Â£10.99 including delivery!
Meanwhile as we approach the third episode of the series School Reunion, there’s plenty of K9 in the Press. K9 Magazine sadly isn’t a monthly dedicated to building your own version of Prof Marius’ pet (although that would be a good idea….) and instead focuses on something called “real dogs” (?), however it does currently feature a report on the new updated K9 that as we reported earlier in the week will be star of it’s own show. The Daily Record, now rare to miss a Who-related story now that one of their countrymen is at the TARDIS controls…
The BBC has been enjoying bumper ratings with Tennant, 35, from Paisley, starring along with Billie Piper
…also mention the spin-off show.
Did you know David Tennant was Scottish?
Former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston is appearing in a new production of “Romeo and Juliet”, reports Manchester Online. Eccleston is patron of the Celebrity Pig Theatre Group which is an independent actor’s company for people with leanring disabilities, who will be holding the production at The Lowry on May 15th and May 16th.
Kilt-wearing, Scotch-drinking, caber-tossing, Scots-born star of Doctor Who David Tennant, 35, from Paisley, son of the Very Reverend Dr McDonald has donated an autographed script from New Earth, reports both BBC News and The Scotsman. The script has been given to St Andrew’s and St George’s Church in George Street, Edinburgh, as part fof their annual Christian Aid booksale. The Scotsman tells us:
John Ramsay, one of the sale organisers, said they were still trying to work out a suitable price for the script.
He said: “When I mentioned it to some members of the Dr Who Appreciation Society, their eyebrows went off the scale.”
Perhaps some sort of hat should be thrown in with each DWAS membership…?
