It has influenced generations of British television professionals, many of whom grew up watching the series.[4] Fans of the series are sometimes referred to as Whovians.

She could take a tip from BBC One - it requires balls to air one of Doctor Who's most experimental, risky and downright odd episodes to date on a Saturday evening in the wake of gushy glitter-fest Strictly Come Dancing. 'Heaven Sent' is an adventure so deliberately dark and obtuse that it's practically begging for a divided reaction. What's known in 'the industry' as a single-hander, it features no (major) speaking parts other than Peter Capaldi's Time Lord. But writer Steven Moffat cleverly subverts the expectation that this'll be a low-budget escapade, with a surplus of Capaldi awkwardly expressing his inner thoughts aloud. There's plenty of the Doctor 'talking to himself', true enough, but there's always a reason. Early on, he's tough-talking the unseen presence that's brought him to this "killer puzzle box" in the middle of a vast ocean. There's the impossibly quick thinking that allows him to escape certain death.

Les McKeown - BCR Bay City Rollers After joining the Bay City Rollers in November 1973, the band, with Les McKeown on lead vocals, shot to superstardom.

"Bye Bye Baby" was their first UK Number One in May 1975 followed by "Give A Little Love" in July. Their first US single, "Saturday Night", went straight to the top number 1 spot of the Billboard charts, and their first British album, "Rollin'" was the first debut album to top the number 1 position in the charts. After leaving the Bay City Rollers in 1978, The Rollers quickly disappeared from public eye. Drawing on the overwhelming response of the BCR reunions, the band Les & Pat, recorded their first studio LP in seven years, 'Breakout'. 1974: Rollin' 1974: Once Upon A Star 1975: Wouldn't You Like It?

The Future of the Paternoster Gang David Selby ponders where things could head next for the trio. Series Eight, it seems, will see changes to most of the show’s status quo: the Doctor has lost his title as the Last of the Time Lords and has taken on a newer, more capricious incarnation, changing his dynamic with the companion; the Siege of Trenzalore is over and the Silence would appear to be a thing of the past, and even smaller changes, such as a redly-lit, bookshelf-filled TARDIS console room only represent the greater shifts in the show as a whole. Yet moving onto a new era, the show-runner has decided to keep the Paternoster Gang: a broad label referring to the characters of Madame Vastra, the ‘Great Detective’ of Victorian London, her human wife, Jenny Flint and their unconventional butler, Sontaran Commander Strax. At present, there is abundant potential in the Paternoster Gang. The Great Detective “You realise Doctor Doyle is almost certainly basing his fantastical tales on your own exploits?

Doctor Who Doctor Who: The Time War - Illuminating the Dark Age Everything we’ve learned about the Doctor’s darkest hour. By Oli SmithWith the Day of the Doctor fast approaching, Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary special appears to be gearing up to answer one of the show's biggest mysteries. Find Out How You Can See the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Special in Theaters! After an absence of nearly 10 years, the Doctor returned to our screens in 2005 with a whole heap of newly acquired baggage and it wasn’t long before hints as to what had transpired during his absence began to trickle into the series.

What exactly happened is something the Doctor has, understandably, never been too keen to elaborate on and it’s only through the tales of other survivors that we are able to piece together any kind of picture of the events of the Last Great Time War.
