Davros - A Fan Creation?

The Daily Mail (on-line version) has a story about the BBC being sued over the use of Davros.

Steven Clark claims that he created the leader of the Daleks in a magzine contest in 1972.

He didn't win the contest but a couple of years later the character of Davros began appearing in the series of 'Doctor Who' in Genesis of the Daleks.

 

For the full details of the lawsuit you can see the original story here:

Daily Mail - BBC Sued over Who first drew the evil Dalek mastermind Davros

 

and the Doctor Who News Page has an additional story on the debate:

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day 2011 - Doctor Who is back with a vengeance as the Doctor (Matt Smith) provides some cosmic relief. The wonderful Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is usually a handful on her own but in this special episode she confronts herself, literally.

Michael Gough has Passed Away at 94 (or 95)

The Celestial ToymakerDoctor Who Monthly has reported via Twitter this morning the sad news of the death of actor Michael Gough. He will be remembered by Doctor Who fans as the Celestial Toymaker in the story of the same name (The Celestial Toymaker) in 1966 with the first Doctor (William Hartnell) and Councillor Hedin in the 1983 story, Arc of Infinity with the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison).

Alfred PennyworthYou may also recall him for his parts on the big screen such as the trustworthy butler Alfred Pennyworth in the 1989 Batman film as well as its sequels, Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman & Robin (1997). 

Also included in his long list of credits is Sleepy Hollow (1999) playing Notary Hardenbrook.

Price Reduction for Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!

Mazes of Time

As previously reported, the Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time debuted in the Apple App Store last December. There are two versions, one is for the iPhone and iPod touch, and an HD version for the iPad. Unfortunately, it is not a universal app, so you can either get the iPhone/iPod touch version and upscale it for the iPad, or alternatively get the HD version specifically for the iPad.

The prices in the US App store had been $3.99 and $4.99 respectively, but are NOW ONLY 99¢ each. So if you have been holding off purchasing this game for the iOS platform, now is the time (that includes myself). At this time, I don't know if this price reduction only pertains to the US iTunes App Store or if it is worldwide. Also I do not know if this is a permanent price reduction or a limited time sale.

Baker Follows Baker

Fourth Doctor

Late last night Big Finish felt confident enough to announce that Tom Baker would be following Colin Baker into Big Finish Audio, as the Doctor. For months it has been a sort of conformation, with Big Finish it's self and more appropriately Nick Briggs himself not wanting to say anything, as dealing in the past had only been a source of spot by Tom.

The details are as follows, "Tom Baker will be playing the Fourth Doctor in a number of audio adventures for Big Finish, to be released from the beginning of 2012. Storylines and scripts are already at an advanced stage, and we plan to start recording early in the summer."
