Earlier today, the Countess of Wessex (whose husband JNT had unsuccessfully tried to recruit for Silver Nemesis) hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace to mark the 50th Anniversary. Present and past TARDIS incumbents were in attendance.
A lot of new photos released from The Day of the Doctor - mostly from scenes already seen, and nothing spoilery.
This morning's BBC Breakfast News had a video set report, which did feature some new clips and interviews. It's on the BBC news website, as well as on You Tube (surprise, surprise).
BBC3 showed the 2 hour "Ultimate Guide". I was pleasantly surprised with this. Not as bad as most clip shows. A heavy emphasis on post 2005, of course, but each Doctor did get their mention. Some annoyingly unfunny "guests" un-associated with the programme. All quite unnecessary as there were enough relevant participants. Some glaring omissions - such as no Ian or Jamie when they were looking at the male companions. Katy Manning was the earliest person interviewed - so no William Russell or Carole Ann Ford from the very beginning. This will be on i-player, but also gets a repeat on Friday evening on Three.
Lastly, if you are a fan of Matt Berry, you will have seen a Tom Baker era Doctor Who piece during last night's Toast of London. That'll be on 4OD.
