It has been announced today (04/08/04) that the Daleks will be in the new series after all. :) Go here for the full story->

Who has started filming! (20/07/04)
Image from and is copyright to the BBC

Shock horror! The Daleks have been excluded from the new series of Who! This is due to copyright issues (the Daleks aren't owned by the BBC, but the estate of the person that came up with them), not because they would upstage Billie Piper. Funnyily enough, the BBC Dead Ringers show predicted this. Impressionist as Greg Dyke "Alright you can have Doctor Who! But not the Daleks! They've crossed me once too often!".

The BBC are now rerunning the series Shada on thier website (at It is an adaption of the original storyline written by the wonderful Douglas Adams and features Paul McGann as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as President Romana and K9 as K9. Theres also a rather sneaky little appearance made by a Ford Prefect that anyone familiar with the HitchHikers Guide will appreciate

It has recently been announced that Billie Piper will be the Doctor's assistant to Christopher Eccleston's Doctor. Come on and start making it already! For more news go to -> or

Doctor Who with lyrics?!

"I cross the void beyond the mind,
The empty space that circles time,
I see where others stumble blind,
The secret truth they never find,
Eternal wisdom is my kind,
I am... the Doctor!"

Go to to hear the pilot Jon Pertwee theme tune that was never used.

The Legend behind the Scarf?

The origin of the Tom Baker Scarf has become a bit of an urban legend among Whoeys. The story goes that when the BBC costume department were designing a Tom's costume, they decided that he should have a scarf. Nothing special, just a scarf. They enlisted the help of an old lady to knit it for them and asked what she would need. When she asked for some wool, the BBC being the BBC, they bought the contents of a wool shop and delivered it in a lorry to her house. When they went to collect the finished article, it filled most of the lady's living room. The scarf you see in the episodes is in fact sections of the original giant scarf.
I have no idea as to the level of truth in this, but its a fun explanation.

What's your favourite Doctor Who quote?

[Cathos] "I don't like this, something wants us to go through this door. After you Brigadeer" (Patrick Troughton in the Five Doctors)

Jamie: "We're not like you."
Cybercontroller: "You will be!" (Tomb of the Cybermen)

The Doctor: "I can also withstand considerably more G-force than other people, even though I say so myself." (Ambassadors of Death)

Scaroth (about the Doctor): "My dear, No one could be as stupid as he seems" (City of Death)

The Doctor: "You don't understand regeneration. It's a lottery and I've drawn a short plank." (Time and the Rani)

The Doctor: "Maybe I'm getting to young for this sort of thing." (Invasion of Time)

The Doctor: "What does he think he is? A potting shed or something?" (Marco Polo)

The Doctor: "I don't believe you've met my young friend Ace, an expert in calorification, incineration, carbonisation, and inflammation." (The Happiness Patrol)

The Doctor: "Would you like a jelly baby?"
Leela: "It's true then! They say the Evil One eats babies."
The Doctor: "You mustn't believe all they say." (The Face of Evil)

[Dom-Chan] 3rd Doctor: Well, I've reversed the polarity of the neutron flows so the TARDIS should be free of the forcefield now.

*5th Doctor takes helmet off and starts pressing buttons in the TARDIS*
Tegan: Doctor, whats...
5th Doctor: Ah,you're spoiling my concentration.

Brigadier: Chap with the wings there, five rounds rapid. (Jon Pertwee's favourite line of The Daemons)

The Doctor: Would you like a<img:>?

2005-02-27 [Cathos]: Surely, Tom would be Baker the 1st and Colin would be Baker the 2nd?

2005-03-01 [Dom-Chan]: so i mean baker the fourth doctor, ok, so it did seem misleading, sorry peeps

2005-04-13 [-chitch-]: WOOOO!!!!!

2005-04-13 [Moucher]: lol has anyone been watching the new series i hope you all have i have to admit though i cant stand christopher ecclestone and cant wait for the new doctor to be chosen

2005-04-16 [..and all that jazz]: I think Chris Eccleston's great, but I think thingy Tennant from Casanova might be better

2005-04-17 [Moucher]: he will be better i cant stand eccleston he cant act he just stands there with a stupid grin on his face

2005-04-17 [Dom-Chan]: personally, i don't think they've bin any good at choosing actors this time. and if that russell t davies thinks that the 1995 TV movie was good, i don't want him in charge of the new series.


2005-05-11 [-chitch-]: <img:> I DREW THIS ON FLASH!!!! IT ROCKS!! WE LOVE YOU DALEK!!!!! Feel free to put it on this wiki. Also, I made a Doctor Who parody in flash. Check it out. Just click new toons on the side menu.

2005-08-17 [Chitch_AN]: Hey hey hey!! I'm back, Why does no one talk here?

2005-08-17 [, , , , , , , , ,]: no clue. I don't talk often because I'm seldom on anymore.

2006-02-18 [The Luggage]: I just found this Wiki and i love Dr Who! Does anyone know when the new series starts? I missed the Christmas Invasion and i want to see what Tennant is like! Everyone I've spoken to liked him, but none of them taped it! And now it's Febuary and i still haven't seen him in action!

2006-08-16 [Bad Wolf]: I don't know if you'd know this (I presume you'd have already read it somewhere) but they actually had two different scarves for Tom Baker's Doctor. A shorter one was used for outdoor shoots so he wouldn't trip over it...XD

2006-10-22 [Doodle of Cydonia]: Oh, my god! A wiki for Doctor Who... as if I never realised before. May I join, please? =)

2006-11-10 [purelily]: Yea, I thought so... Thanks to my baby brother for showing it to me. I had to find someone to share it with who would appreciate it. :D

2006-11-11 [Doodle of Cydonia]: N'awww. ^-^ Well, this does seem a rather good place. :3 It's a pity Halloween's not a big thing over here. I'd so be covering our house with pumpkin Dalkeks if it was. =P
