Really incredibly well-done fanart.  Enjoy!

Peter Davison in Law and Order UK

So you can have your Apollo and Doctor too.

The show's pretty good.  The reason it seems so familiar is because they use scripts from the US version and just UK 'em up a bit.  No problem with that!

More BBC Radio 4 Goodness

David Tennant reads five Victorian vampire stories in "Book at Bedtime: A Night with a Vampire," on BBC Radio 4 next week. Wonder which accent he'll use?:

Amy's (Audiobook) Choice - John Simm Reads "Billy Liar"

You all know how much I love audiobooks - BTW, have you signed up at Audible yet? It's the best. Anyway, I just received an email from CSA Word, a lovely indie purveyor of superb audiobook magic - they're featuring John Simm reading "Billy Liar":

http://www.csaword.co.uk/epages/3828.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/3828/Pr...

They've got wonderful books read by great readers, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Pigott-Smith (whom we all love in "Masque of Mandragora"), Sir Derek Jacobi, Philip Glenister, Simm's cohort in "Life on Mars," and my all-time favorite... well, just look for "My Family and Other Animals," a true exit-misser if there ever was one, which I was in the middle of when the Touch took a dive.  I'm looking forward to starting it up again soon.  Made me smile.

Amy's (Radio) Choice - This Week's BBC Radio 4 Highlight

As I'm sure you know, BBC Radio 4, available to us here in America on the iPlayer free of charge (for the time being, at least), is a dependable source of terrific programming, particularly radio plays with great acting. Lots of the program(me)s have actors who have appeared in WHO. This week:

"Alone in Berlin," the story of German resistance in Berlin during WWII.  It stars Ron Cook, who was Mr. Magpie in "The Idiot's Lantern."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00vvwq0

Cook is a personal favorite of mine.  Look for him in the brilliant Mike Leigh film "Topsy-Turvy," as well as Paul McGann's "Hornblower" and "Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story," which we discussed in our review of "The Deadly Assassin" a few months ago.

BTW, found this cool site when I was looking for an image.  Great behind-the-scenes shots from the ep:

Playing the Dane

BBC Radio 4 continues to deliver aural gifts to us, license fee be damned!

"Playing the Dane" is a reflection on different interpretations of Hamlet narrated by the amazing Michael Sheen (fleetingly quoting Richard Griffiths' "I shall never play the Dane!," much to my unending delight!), with comments from actors as diverse as David Tennant, Derek Jacobi and John Simm.  And people who were never Timelords, like Kenneth Branagh and Jonathan Pryce.

Speak the speech I pray you!

American TV needs this show. I mean, it's J.J. Abrams.  It's gotta be good!
