That Was The Week That Was 17.2.13
Daleks took to Westminster Bridge again this week, as filming continued for An Adventure In Space and Time. On Tuesday the first official picture was released - showing an off duty Hartnell (reading a February 1964 Radio Times) alongside his wife.
Maureen O'Brien and Peter Purves are also due to be featured in the programme.
News about the anniversary episode as well on Tuesday - including that it will be filmed in 3D. The Daily Mirror chose to run with a story that all the Doctors will be appearing, but each of the actors is on record as saying they have heard nothing about this. Of course, they may just have signed confidentiality clauses in their contracts...
The Radio Times (which gave away 8 RT Doctor Who cover postcards) seemed to suggest a possible return for the Great Intelligence, and it has now been confirmed that there is certainly one new returning monster for Series 7 Part 2 - the Ice Warriors appearing in Mark Gatiss' Arctic submarine-set adventure.
Finally, classicdw announced that we would be getting an animated episode 4 when The Tenth Planet is released on DVD at the end of the year.
