More of David Tennant as the Doctor!

Woo Who!!!![1] It’s a long time till November, when we should be seeing David Tennant in The Waters of Mars and even longer till Christmas, when we’ll see him finish his run as the Doctor in the big two part special. But there’s more!

David Tennant is to appear as the Time Lord in Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures

And it won’t just be a quick walk-on, it’ll be a proper guest part, reuniting Sarah Jane with the Doctor for a special adventure. Russell T Davies says:

Viewers thought they may have to wait until November for the next full episode of Doctor Who, but this is an extra special treat. And it’s not just a cameo from David. This is a full-on appearance for the Doctor as he and Sarah Jane face their biggest threat ever.

I haven’t caught up with the second series of Sarah Jane yet, but I was quite impressed with the first one when I eventually got round to watching the DVDs. And a guest appearance from the man himself makes the next series something to look forward to indeed.

All Aboard the WTF Bus!

You know, sometimes I see something so peculiar, that the only possible reaction is to stand there uttering the immortal letters W – T – F[1]. This was never more true than today, when I saw this:



Yes, it’s an official WTF bus! It seems to be some weird advertising campaign linking underwear to bus tickets, but either by careful planning or a lucky chance, the knickers for the days from Wednesday to Friday ended up on the back of the bus, allowing anyone behind it to see those lovely letters. I wonder if Stagecoach’s management know what their vehicles are saying to the people of Newcastle?
