New companion & new DWM
Have been rather busy this week, so if you're waiting for my look at Battlefield then you'll have to wait a little bit longer - Saturday evening. I'll also be looking at the following bit of news announced today. The identity of the person who will be playing the new companion is due to be revealed live on BBC One on Saturday, during Half-Time on Match of the Day. That should make it around 6pm GMT.
I don't know about you, but the reveal of someone we've never heard of is unlikely to hold many peoples' attention, so could it be that they've chosen someone already quite well known?
This will be the first time a companion has been announced on live TV - they're normally introduced in a standard press call.
Today the cover for DWM issue 499 was also released.
The cover - a reproduction of the Genesis of the Daleks paperback cover by Chris Achilleos - will be to tie in with the forthcoming exhibition at London's Cartoon Museum. This will feature dozens of original artworks that graced Target book covers. It runs from 28th April to 11th May. I'm planning to go sometime in the final week, as I will be in Scotland when the exhibition opens - advance notice, there won't be any posts between 27th April and 2nd May.
