The Radio Times website gives a minor update on the 50th Anniversary show and confirms the Ice Warriors story. I bought this for the free postcards and inside there is a general article on the anniversary plus a two page spread on AAITAS showing David Bradley as William Hartnell and Lesley Manville as his wife Heather. Update 15th February – here is a link to the Radio Times two page spread.
The general article covers topics familiar to fans including the stamps, re-issued books, the Big Finish / Audio Go releases and The Big Finish special Light at the End. Some other mentions come at the end including a convention (Longleat 2 anyone?!), BBC3 documentaries (note the plural), A BBC 2 Culture Show special and Sue MacGregor’s Radio 4 show The Reunion. After that straight on with the Christmas special and the next series.
I don’t see any classic repeats (something the US and Australia seem to be doing); surely that’s a no brainer.
What do you think? Will we be sick of specials by the time the anniversary comes along? Do we still want a bigger anniversary adventure?
Let me know!
