What does this have to do with Doctor Who? Well read it and find out. Okay, yes, it is a bit of a puff piece, but so what…

New Doctor, Familiar Location!

Series 8 is taking the Doctor back to somewhere the he visited a long time ago, 1984 to be exact…

Getting Into the Thick Of It

Can’t wait for Capaldi’s first regular appearance? Neither can Andrew, that’s why he dove into Peter’s other big show, having a marathon viewing!

The Quest For 1000

The Quest is the quest, as they said in Underworld. And the Doctor Who Missing Episodes Group on Facebook is on a quest to reach 1000 members. Did they make it yet?

We had a couple of Polls this week, both of them related to the omnirumour. First up, did the article in DWM a couple weeks ago change your mind about anything? And more recently, do you think a kickstarter fund would be a viable option that fans could use to help get possible missing episodes returned faster? If you haven’t voted in one or both of those polls, please, go ahead, make your voice heard!

Missing Episodes: Season 3 part 2

On the topic of missing episodes, Andrew looked at the latter half of season three, from The Feast of Stephen right through to the War Machines.

Well, I think that’s about it for this past week! We also started #FanProducedFriday in which we highlight fan productions to bring more viewers/listeners to worthy causes. If you have a project you would like mentioned, email dcollins@troughtonismydoctor.com or tweet that hashtag at us with a link to your project!

Well, here we are again, with a round up of all things TIMD from the last week. Be sure to follow us on twitter @troughtonsmydoc and get the news as it happens.

New writer for series 8? Read all about it.

Also on the subject of series 8 (sorta), some musings on Doctor Who’s long-standing habit of meeting famous historical figures. But who’s next?

On a series 8 tangent, yesterday was lovely Jenna Coleman’s 28th birthday, happy birthday Impossible Girl!

It was also former showrunner Russell “The” Davies’ birthday, and, if we fancy getting meta about this, Rose Tyler’s too. Quel Dommage, Russell!

This week has seen a huge glut of Pathe newsreel clips uploaded to YouTube, featuring some fleeting glimpses of William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee. Thanks to Sammi Carter for sniffing these out from the huge archive that Pathe have made available.

New YouTube Clips discovered

Pertwee Clips!

More Pertwee Clips!

And one more for luck.

Fed up with the Omnirumour? Ignore it. Just for fun, in an ideal world, which season would you most like to see completed? Let us know by taking part in our Wish Fulfilment Quiz.

Also, take a look at Part One of our feature on the mostly missing Season Three, the first great gap in the canon, and a period of change both in front of and behind camera.

Finally there’s a new fan produced audio being released soon. Doctor Who Dark Journey.

Is that all? It can’t be all, we must have missed something… Nope, that’s all the news from the past week.

The Wish Fulfillment Quiz

Season 4- Missing The Smugglers (4 episodes) The Tenth Planet 4, The Power Of The Daleks (6 episodes), The Highlanders (4 episodes) The Underwater Menace 1, 4, The Moonbase 1, 3, The Macra Terror (4 episodes) The Faceless Ones 2, 4-6, The Evil Of The Daleks 1, 3-7.
