big-success-for-who-at-national-television-awards

It was a big night of success for Doctor Who at the National Television Awards last night as it reigned supreme in both of the categories in which it was nominated!

The celebrations began as the show was named Best Drama with Jenna Coleman taking to the stage to pick up the award on behalf of its cast and crew. “50 years later and still going strong,” the actress proclaimed. “This belongs our team who are busy grafting award in Cardiff as we speak – thank you so much to everybody who voted!”

In addition Matt Smith’s portrayal of the Eleventh Doctor won him the gong for TV’s Best Drama Performance. Matt – who was far too busy being an American Pyscho in the West End – recorded this message to thank fans for voting. Congratulations to Who and Matt!

Luckily for Matt his award is in safe hands until he can pick it up. Enter Rory the Roman…

As Jenna mentioned, filming on Series 8, starring Peter Capaldi, is currently underway.

new-e-book-tales-of-trenzalore-artwork-details

Next month will mark the arrival of a digital e-book bringing together four of the Eleventh Doctor’s off-screen adventures which took place during the Siege of Trenzalore.

Tales of Trenzalore compiles a collection of new stories that detail the various terrors and threats the Doctor faced as he vowed to protect the planet and its people from an array of the universe’s deadliest foes. Featuring the return of familiar adversaries, such as the Ice Warriors and the Autons, these are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid.

Tales of Trenzalore will be available to download from 27th February 2014. Don’t miss it!

“As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction – the Doctor. For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it remains shrouded in mystery and darkness.

Until now.”

Featuring the short stories:
Let it Snow by Justin Richards
An Apple a Day by George Mann
Strangers in the Outland by Paul Finch
The Dreaming by Mark Morris
