Doctor Who: The Lost Season
(from Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord)
Brief featurette about the abandoned plans for the original season 23. They're illustrated, and someone clearly had too much fun drawing Peri's chest.
Three of these missing stories were novelised, donchaknow, and I read them all about 10 or 11 years ago. Go me.
I love features like this, about 'lost' stories. There's one on the Survival DVD too, but I don't think I got round to watching it. Maybe I'll do that now...


The greatest magazine cover of all time
(from Radio Times)
Photo article showing the complex process by which RT created their "Vote Dalek!" cover in 2005, which was recently voted the greatest magazine cover of all time (hence the title). It received over a quarter of the vote apparently. Well deserved too, if you ask me.
