First just a quick note before my news I wish to thank Louis Trapani for allowing my wife (Jessica Burke) and I (Anthony Burdge) to blog here for him and the Gallifreyan Embassy. If you are not familiar with us we are the Editors/Contributors of The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman both published by Kitsune Books. We have been contributors to Doctor Who Podshock and guests as well. You will be able to hear about our latest book The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman in an upcoming episode of Podshock.
For many Doctor Who fans, especially those of a certain age (and it still upsets me that I can now use that phrase about myself!), the biggest news of the summer - with the exception of the first pictures of the 11th Doctor - has been the return of Tom Baker to the role that made him a national institution and an icon all over the world. Yes, the 4th Doctor is back - in a 5 part audio adventure called Hornet's Nest from BBC Audio. It's been almost 30 years since the 4th Doctor had a new adventure. 30 years since those wonderful warm and throaty tones have been part of a new Doctor Who story.
