Who has started filming! (20/07/04)

Shock horror! The Daleks have been excluded from the new series of Who! This is due to copyright issues (the Daleks aren't owned by the BBC, but the estate of the person that came up with them), not because they would upstage Billie Piper. Funnyily enough, the BBC Dead Ringers show predicted this. Impressionist as Greg Dyke "Alright you can have Doctor Who! But not the Daleks! They've crossed me once too often!".
The BBC are now rerunning the series Shada on thier website (at http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/shada
). It is an adaption of the original storyline written by the wonderful Douglas Adams and features Paul McGann as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as President Romana and K9 as K9. Theres also a rather sneaky little appearance made by a Ford Prefect that anyone familiar with the HitchHikers Guide will appreciate
It has recently been announced that Billie Piper will be the Doctor's assistant to Christopher Eccleston's Doctor. Come on and start making it already! For more news go to -> http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/newtv/index.shtml
Doctor Who with lyrics
"I cross the void beyond the mind,
The empty space that circles time,
I see where others stumble blind,
The secret truth they never find,
Eternal wisdom is my kind,
I am... the Doctor!"

The Legend behind the Scarf?
The origin of the Tom Baker Scarf has become a bit of an urban legend among Whoeys. The story goes that when the BBC costume department were designing a Tom's costume, they decided that he should have a scarf. Nothing special, just a scarf. They enlisted the help of an old lady to knit it for them and asked what she would need. When she asked for some wool, the BBC being the BBC, they bought the contents of a wool shop and delivered it in a lorry to her house. When they went to collect the finished article, it filled most of the lady's living room. The scarf you see in the episodes is in fact sections of the original giant scarf.
I have no idea as to the level of truth in this, but its a fun explanation.
