News / The 'Loch Ness Monster of Iceland' has (possibly) been identified.
« on: February 14, 2012, 11:16:16 AM »
Scotland's infamous Loch Ness monster may (or may not) have some company. Home footage captured by Iceland farmer Hjortur Kjerulf that appears to show some type of cryptid creature writhing in a river may not be as unexplainable as conspiracy theorists had hoped.

News / Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography (review).
« on: February 13, 2012, 10:20:14 AM »
'Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography' was a posthumous publication and this audio version is read by previous Doctor Who companion, Caroline John. In many ways, she has the perfect voice for this. At once familiar to us as another companion to Jon Pertwee's Doctor, she also steps back and allows the voice of the author to shine through her and shine it does in a book that Sladen was not so keen on producing. Her voice is as strong and clear here as ever it was.

News / Dragon Age: Asunder by David Gaider (book review)
« on: February 12, 2012, 10:27:01 AM »
'Dragon Age: Asunder' by Bioware's lead writer, David Gaider, is third in a series of fiction set in the same world as the 'Dragon Age' video games. Set a year after the conclusion of 'Dragon Age II', 'Asunder' explores the repercussions of the cataclysmic end to that game. Instead of Kirkwall, however, the setting is Val Royeaux, home of the Chantry and the Divine and the White Spire, which houses the Orlesian Circle of Magi.

BBC Worldwide announced today that Director Toby Haynes will be joining the Official Doctor Who Convention taking place on the 24th and 25th March at Cardiff’s Millennium Centre.

Toby Haynes has directed several Eleventh Doctor episodes and most recently came together with Steven Moffat again to film the nail biting series-finale of Sherlock.  Doctor Who episodes directed by Haynes include the US based opener to series 6 The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon; the 2010 Christmas special A Christmas Carol with guest stars Michael Gambon and Katherine Jenkins; and Series 5 episodes The Big Bang and The Pandorica Opens which saw the Doctor imprisoned in the fabled Pandorica Box.

“I love the idea of a Convention with a difference, bringing together all the people who make the show and letting the fans see the script to screen process in person. Often when I meet fans I'm blown away by their knowledge of Doctor Who and their enthusiasm to find out more, this event will go a long way to fulfilling that desire!” said Toby Haynes.

Toby joins a host of cast and crew appearing at the Official Doctor Who Convention including: Matt Smith; Steven Moffat; Arthur Darvill; Mark Sheppard; Nicholas  Briggs; Ian McNeice; Raquel Cassidy; Neill Gorton; Danny Hargreaves; Tom MacRae;  Barnaby Edwards; Caroline Henry; Stephan Pehrsson; Michael Pickwoad; Andy Pryor; Gary Russell; Simon Fisher-Becker and Marcus Wilson. The Convention is a full day event that will reveal the inner workings of Doctor Who, showing the journey from script to screen: Live special effects and pyrotechnic demonstrations; prosthetic masterclasses and in-depth Q & A sessions with the makers of the show will give an unrivalled glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of Doctor Who. 

Tickets are on general sale now, priced at £99 and available at: www.dwconvention.com
