Paul Cornell has a series on his blog, The 12 Blogs of Christmas this holiday season.
In the latest entry, The 12 Blogs of Christmas: Eleven. Millennium Eve he features some of his fellow Doctor Who folk… included are Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat, Gary Russell, Murray Gold, James Moran, Noel Clarke, even a familiar name from Doctor Who: Podshock is there too.
In it, we are recounting what we were doing ten years ago as we rang in the new millennium.
Actually, it is quite humbling to be sharing such company on the same page. I thank Paul, he is a lovely person and friend. As I said in my piece included in Paul's blog, take nothing for granted.
Not posted a blog for a while so here is a Christmas message from myself and Ian the6thdoctor on behalf of The Cultdom Collective Podcast.

Lots to listen to coming up on BBC Radio 4 - luckily, we can use "listen again" on the iPlayer. And, anyway, haven't I employed enough BBC actors by now to get to use the damn thing here? :)
Here's a cool one:
Doctor Who - The Lost Episodes: Shaun Ley investigates what happened to 108 missing episodes of Doctor Who from the 1960s, why the tapes were wiped and how dedicated fans hunted down copies of other episodes in film collections from Cyprus to New Zealand. And while we may have lost those early programmes, Shaun hears how home recordings ensured all the audio survived.
With The End of Time approaching, the BBC has released yet another promo "trailer" for it. Time will end this Christmas. Happy Holidays.
A belated Happy Birthday to Nicholas Courtney who turned 80 on the 16th of December. Nicholas Courtney has been connected to the Doctor Who series going back to when William Hartnell was the Doctor. He is best known for his role as Brigadier Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart. Aside from appearing in two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures last year (Enemy of the Bane parts 1 and 2), he has yet to appear in the series since its return in 2005, although there have been some references.
A special birthday wish and thank you goes out to Nicholas Courtney for the years of enjoyment he has brought to our screens throughout time and space.
Here is another behind-the-scenes Doctor Who video from BBC America with David Tennant discussing the TARDIS.

Mulligan has just been nominated for a Golden Globe for her work in An Eduction, which are traditionally seen as a pathway to the Oscars.
