|Only one week to go until the premiere of Series 8, or as Warren (and no-one else) terms it, 8mageddon, and there’s news of trailers, radio trailers, misguided Tom Baker biopics, Doctor Who world tours and more. But more importantly, Friend of the Show, all around fine gent and writer of some renown Phil Ford returns to talk about “Into the Dalek,” his contribution to Series 8 due to grace our screens in just a couple of weeks, but also about the Deep Breath premiere in Cardiff and just how wonderful Peter Capaldi really is, both on and off camera. And if you’ve ever wanted to know what ringtones the Three Who Rule have on our phones, well….you’re welcome.|
– Doctor Who…World Tour!
The BBC don’t reveal the start times of Doctor Who until the very last moment because they are locked in a perpetual life-or-death battle with the ITV schedulers for Saturday night ratings. They often don’t decide until the very last moment when it will be shown. So it’s not that they manage to keep it secret. It’s that until the very last moment there’s no secret to keep.
