Buildup Continues

Magazines are queuing up to promote Series 3 of Doctor Who, with early contenders including Whats On TV and SFX.

While the now legendary British sci-fi and cult magazine featrues a fantastic cover of the Doctor and Martha, and proclaims:

The third series is almost upon us! We talk to Russell T Davies about what the Doctor will be up to this year, and we’ve got lots of lovely photos too, just to whet your appetite!

…the down-market television guide (hardly Radio Times, are you…?) gets all excited – and rightly so! – about the teaser trailer.

Elsewhere, the Doctor Who linkup with Comic Relief – in particular here we’re talking about red noses and chocolates – has been picked up by the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site. Not like Red Nose Day is anything to do with the Beeb, is it…? In fairness they do reveal that:

David Tennant will also reunite with former companion Catherine Tate this Friday evening for Red Nose Day. David will play a new teacher who’ll be ‘bovvering’ Catherine’s troublesome teen Lauren.

And the build up continues in the next couple of weeks with Freema Agyeman appearing on Radio 5 Live with Simon Mayo on March 30th from 2.30pm (thanks to FreemaAgyeman.com).

Our friends at OFFSTAGE Theatre Group recently appeared at the Gallifrey One convention in North America performing their play “The Ten Doctors” – and even got a mention in yesterdays Sunday Telegraph for their efforts (well done to you all, and thanks Barnaby!)

The Doctor Who Autograph Collectors Club have held another event in aid of Cancer Research. Darwen Cricket Club in Lancashire was the venue where Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman and Stuart Fell to take part in group interviews where fans had the opportunity to win Doctor Who memorabilia. Organiser Graham Groom spoke to ThisIsLancashire.co.uk:

Event organiser Graham Groom said: “One in three people are affected by cancer and so this year we wanted to raise money for Cancer Research, a very worthy cause.”

Lizzie Jones, Cancer Research community fundraiser, said: “Innovative activities such as the Doctor Who convention make a tremendous difference to our fundraising.”

Best wishes for your future endeavours, Doctor Who Autograph Collectors Club!
