The world's fluffiest sea otter.

Further to the thread on kyoht's proposed WD portfolio, another artist presented two of her works on the theme - and if you've any interest in the book, you really ought to look: The Prince's Invitation, and Frith's Blessing. Either would look magnificent as posters, and I recall Rabbit Valley recently began offering such as an option to represented artists.

What is Bad Wolf? We just don't know.

Some neat experiments to try at home, including an arc transmitter, sending audio over a modulated flashlight, and converting a lawnmower to run off propane.

roohbear's got a diary, and various musings of his recent trip to Japan and Hong Kong up; we trust photos will be coming in due course. ^_^

runtt got a fan letter from Russia, from another musician - and his work's worth checking out. (And if you've been wondering what Closet Coon looks like in Russian, here you go!)

So, it's official: the current season of Doctor Who will see a box set release on Nov 21 2005, listed at play.com for £50, cf list price £70. No word on special features yet.

*sigh* Finally got around to watching "Father's Day", and yes, I can see why it's another of the top episodes of this season. Not the most subtle of them, to be sure, but none the less moving for that. (How was Boom Town? It'll be another couple hours before I can enjoy that - no spoilers, please! Although I did make the mistake of seeing the trailer for it last week, which seemed like it gave much of the story away anyhow)
Absolutely - from the first minutes of seeing Eccleston as the Doctor (hm! His IMDb entry notes he was in The Others, amongst other films.. I'll have to take a peek at that again. I'd not really been particularly aware of him until this), I was hooked.. that slightly manic grin, an unstoppable joie de vivre (despite all that's happened!), and a keen sense of the snark - brilliant! But, he does seem to want to keep shifting around, so he'll be moving on. *sigh* A terrible pity, but he's ensured (for better or for worse.. see Galaxy Quest :) a prominent position in the Who lineup, and a highly successful relaunch for one of TV sci-fi's most beloved series.

I've got Boom Town now, but haven't watched it yet - a certain hedgehog did let slip something of a spoiler, possibly, but I'll wait and see for myself.. and it wouldn't contradict your thoughts. As I noted in my reply to Merik ^^ up there, Bad Wolf does seem to directly involve the Doctor, probably sending all these clues himself, and Rose. And then there's Geocomtex's support page, using two style sheets, "tabule" and "rasa".. possibly just alluding to Van Statten's fondness for mindwipes, but maybe referring to Captain Jack's missing two years?

Oh, this is fun!

Both times this season they end the cliffhangers in the 30 seconds before the episode starts with opening title

Well.. by their nature, a cliffhanger's going to be a sudden dramatic high point, likely to be as rapidly defused, ne? The resolution in The Doctor Dances, though, I loved. ^_^ It seemed such an impossible situation to escape - and so, they didn't, in what's such a beautifully ridiculously internally logical solution. >grin<

I'll have to remember to avoid the trailer at the end of Boom Town, though, given it sounds like the final two-parter's going to see the season off impressively. (Thankfully, doctorwho folks appear to be very good about ensuring spoilers are kept behind lj-cuts)

And as I recall, next season will see the return of the Cybermen, a long-time favorite of mine. ^_^ Should be very interesting to see how they're brought back, given the new angle afforded to the daleks in episode six.
