WhovianNet readers have named Series 4 as the greatest series of NuWho to date!

Last month we opened a poll to determine the best series of the last decade to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the revived series. And oh, what a decade it has been!

The first episode, Rose, aired exactly 10 years ago today, on Saturday 26th March 2005, and everybody’s favourite Time Lord has been running ever since. It’s been the trip of the lifetime and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

2008 was a momentous year for the show. The fourth series welcomed back Donna Noble as the Tenth Doctor’s full time travelling companion and together they faced the likes of the Sontarans, the Vespiform and the Vashta Nerada. This series also introduced River Song as well as Jenny, the Doctor’s daughter, and it all culminated in one of the most epic stories in the show’s history when the Doctor’s allies joined forces to conquer Davros and the Daleks.

It’s fitting, then, that you’ve named it the best series of NuWho to date, with a landslide 32% of the final vote. In at second place was Series 2 with 16%, followed by Series 8 in third place with 15%. A huge thank you to everybody who voted. Are you pleased with the results? Have your say below and join us we wish NuWho a very happy 10th anniversary!

Peter Capaldi has revealed that his previous appearance in Doctor Who “is certainly addressed” during the new series.

The actor starred in the Series 4 episode The Fires of Pompeii as Caecilius and will be seen in his first full-length adventure as the Twelfth Doctor when the series returns on 23rd August. “The full answer isn’t there, but it’s something you’ll discover,” he cryptically told triple j. “The Doctor is influenced in his regenerations by things around him. But you also need to question that character in Pompeii. Perhaps he wasn’t who he said he was…”

How do you think Peter’s part in Pompeii will be addressed? Let us know in the comments…

Catherine Tate has revealed she would love the opportunity to return to Doctor Who.

The actress became an instant hit with fans for her portrayal of companion Donna Noble. First seen in The Runaway Bride she joined the Doctor full time in Series 4 and was last seen in David Tennant’s final story, The End of Time.

The star has told TV Times mag that she wouldn’t turn down an offer to reprise her popular role again.

“Yes, I would be more than happy,” she confirmed. In 2011 she starred opposite David Tennant in a West End production of Much Ado About Nothing. She said: “Benedick and Beatrice are similar to the Doctor and Donna in some ways – there is sparring between them but it’s a romantic relationship which was obviously never the case in Doctor Who.”

So we know Catherine’s interested – would you like to see more of Donna? Let us know.

French Whovians have recently launched a new online petition to get the full fourth series of Doctor Who released on DVD in France!

The appeal will eventually be sent to Mr Rostein of France Television Distribution, the distributors of Doctor Who DVDs, and it’s hoped that it will encourage him to realise that there is a “real base of fans and a growing popularity for this series” in the country, offering the signatures as proof that there are “many potential buyers”.

While Series 1, 2 and 3 have been made available, fans have also urged for future Doctor Who DVDs to be produced at a higher quality, after previous releases have seen no special features, French dubs incomplete and even full episodes completely missing.

You can read the full details and sign the petition here (don’t forget to use Google Translate!), and we’d like to wish our fellow Whovians the very best of luck! Allons-y!
