    General NewsAccording to Heroes creator and head writer, Tom Kring, Eccleston will appear at least in the 22 January episode of the hit NBC drama.

    This episode, the series' 12th, will lead off the second half of season one. It will be fans' first new Heroes following the Christmas hiatus that begins after the episode shown on 4 December 2006.

    The former Doctor Who star will play the part of Claude, an older "hero" who's had the power of invisibility for some years.

    "He's big, imposing and charismatic," says Kring, "and will become a mentor to Peter—albeit a tough, reluctant and stern one. He'll help Peter learn to use and control his powers."

    This news, once questioned as possible rumor because of its TV Guide source, has recently been given greater credence because of its publication on Tom Kring's own semi-official Heroes website.

    General NewsGreetings to all you hard-working Who afficionados.

    As an only occasional Doctor Who, I'm not sure how interesting this will be to you, or indeed if this is common knowledge. In any case, I was re-reading Douglas Adams fantastic book: "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" the other day and realised that Doug had clearly purloined plot sections and whole characters from Tom Baker-era episodes he must have been involved in as co-writer. Specifically, Shada and City of Death are instantly noticeable, perhaps others as well.

    Whether Douglas was just subconsciously recycling ideas, or deliberately referencing his earlier work (more likely I suspect), I couldn't say.

    General NewsWelcome to the newly redesigned Gallifreyan Embassy web site.

    This year, 2005 is not only special because it marks the 20th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy, but it also marks the return of the Doctor Who series on television by the BBC. It also marks the year we have been introduced to two new Doctors, the 9th played by Christopher Eccleston and now the 10th played by David Tennant. It's an exciting time for all Doctor Who fans! The series has been renewed for next year, as well as the following year! There's even talk once again of a big screen production featuring The Doctor.

    With all the exciting news taking place around our favourite Time Lord, we are pleased to present a new redesigned and interactive Gallifreyan Embassy web site! You can already see many of the new features now, and there are more planned for the near future. Climb onboard for a trip of a lifetime as we celebrate Doctor Who past, present, and future together!
