It Must be Cold in London…

To pay £24600 on a scarf. Of course not just any scarf – former Doctor Who star Tom Baker’s iconic stripey scarf (plus coat and trousers)!

TomThe BBC have reported that todays costume auction at Bonhams – which also featured costumes from Braveheart, Indiana Jones as well as Alec Guiness’ cloak from Star Wars – featured several lots that went for more than expected, but of particular note was the chance to try the costumes on before buying… are they mad?

Meanwhile, on a more affordable level, FreemaAgyeman.com have reported that Character Options have confirmed the release date of the first Martha Jones figure – June 1st 2007. There are no photos available yet of either the 5″ or 12″ figures, but you can find more about it at the link above.

Incidentally for those of you out there who either ladies or unafraid to buy ladies/girls magazines (you know how you are…) Bliss magazine has an interview with Freema, and another visit to Freema’s fansite reveals more, including the following question…

Dalek or Cyberman? Who would you rather face?

“Definitely a Dalek.

Then again, Daleks can get up stairs now…”

Freema’s also in April’s TV Zone.

Elsewhere it seems that ITV’s plans for Primeval are more long-term than originally expected. The six part series is due to end before the next run of Doctor Who, but already a second series of the dinosaur hunting show has been commissioned… who knows when it will be scheduled… there’s more information on this from SFX Magazine

Finally, while websites are questioning the true purpose and point behind BBC and YouTube’s joint venture, it’s worth pointing out that we got to the end of this news bulletin without mentioning Billie Piper.

Oh B*gger
