David Walliams announced on BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show that he is to have a part in Doctor Who in the upcoming series. All that he's willing to reveal is that he's an alien and shooting starts soon. David is better known for his character comedies "Little Britain" and most recently "Come Fly with Me" which was being shot at Stansted Airport in September as I was visiting the UK. In which he stars with comedy partner Mat Lucas. David is also know to Who fans from sketches he did with Mark Gattis for Comic Relief (UK) in 1999, which ended up as extras in "The Beginnings" boxed set and is well worth a watch. The YouTube clip is below for your perusal.
Today saw the release of the soundtracks collection to lost episodes Volume 2.
Still within the Hartnell Era, this set comprises of "The Masacre of St Bartholomew's Eve" "The Celestial Toy maker" "The Savages" and "The Daleks Master Plan" three of the story's contained within, are considered by many to be black and white era who at it's best. And so the boxed set worth having in every Who fans collection. Not forgetting that the Daleks master plan is the longest Doctor Who story ever, taking place in twelve parts. All of these Story's are from the original series (season) three, which in it's self is largely missing.
