Watch Good as Gold now!

It’s the only bit of new Doctor Who we’ll get for quite some time – so let’s treasure the 3 minutes that Good as Gold offers us.

The mini-episode won this year’s Script-to-Screen competition, which offered primary school children the chance of writing for the Doctor and Amy. Showrunner, Steven Moffat, executive producer, Caroline Skinner and BBC Learning’s Katy Jones picked Ashdene Primary School’s entry as their favourite; the short is a fun little jaunt, with surprisingly-good dialogue, a new look for the Time Lord, and is certainly fitting for a hot and sunny summer day.


Last year’s winner, Death is the Only Answer, was written by the kids of Oakley Junior School, and featured Albert Einstein. Airing last October, it was screened as part of Doctor Who Confidential on BBC3; an option which sadly wasn’t open to this year’s entry with the show being cancelled.

But fear not. You can see Good as Gold on the ‘idiot’s lantern’ as part of Blue Peter at 4.30.


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' Assistant Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything.
