    Doctor Who News

    The Mirror.co.uk is running an article today concerning "backlash" that David Tennant felt he faced after it was announced he would replace Christopher Eccleston as the tenth Doctor.

    "I know everybody loved Chris and so did I, but hopefully I won't disappoint people," Tennant stated according to this article. He was dismayed when he read some of the negative fan reactions posted to the BBC site concerning his casting in the role. He laughs off the criticism, but admits that it will be tough to follow Eccleston. He's also looking forward to confronting the Daleks, but is unsure if they will be appearing next year.

    Doctor Who's lead writer and executive producer, Russell T. Davies has been named number 14 of 100 top media people in the UK according to BBC News. The annual list ranks media professionals by cultural influence, economic weight and political power. Davies at age 42 debuted on the list at number 14! Not too shabby.

    She continued, "As a producer, Russell is an inspiration - he is hardworking, ceaselessly enthusiastic and able to make people believe they can achieve the impossible."

    Doctor Who News

    The "Cult" Television section of the BBC web site officially closes today. The BBC - Cult Television site had been the home of the official BBC Doctor Who site as well as other 'cult' TV shows such as Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy among others. If you visit the site now you will be treated to a farewell animation and music which includes K-9 and closes with the closing cue of the Blake's Seven theme (I am not sure how much longer you will have a chance to see this).

    Doctor Who fans fear not, while it means goodbye to the BBC Cult TV site where the DW site was located, the BBC is not trashing the DW site (come on, they learned their lesson destroying all those old episodes from the '60s)... The DW site is not closing, instead, it now has a new URL address. The old URL to the 'cult' section still works, it will simply redirect you to the new location. The new URL is a little simpler in fact, it is http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/

    Rumor has it that actor, Stephen Fry will be in the next season (series) next year. Fry may be writing a story for next year according to the BBC.

    Well known for his acting roles as well as being an accomplished author and director, Stephen Fry is rumored to be part of the next season of Doctor Who in some shape or form.
