Doctor Who British science fiction TV series Premise History Licensed media such as novels and audio plays provided new stories, but as a television programme Doctor Who remained dormant until 2003. In September of that year, BBC Television announced the in-house production of a new series after several years of attempts by BBC Worldwide to find backing for a feature film version. The programme has been sold to many other countries worldwide (see Viewership). Public consciousness It has been claimed that the transmission of the first episode was delayed by ten minutes due to extended news coverage of the assassination of US President John F. The programme soon became a national institution in the United Kingdom, with a large following among the general viewing audience. Many renowned actors asked for or were offered guest-starring roles in various stories. With popularity came controversy over the show's suitability for children. The TARDIS prop used from 2010–2017.

BBC New Series Adventures Ninth Doctor Edit Launched in mid-2005, the New Series Adventures introduced a new format for Doctor Who fiction - paperback-sized hardcovers with smaller word count than the previous EDA and PDA lines. For a few months the "NSA" line coexisted with the EDA and PDA lines until they were retired at the end of 2005. With this series of books, BBC Books also established a release pattern it has continued ever since, releasing the books in batches of three at least twice a year. The books are considered standalone and, thus, may be read in any order (at least among a particular set of three). The novels tended to reflect changes in the cast. This line of novels continued to be issued following Christopher Eccleston's departure from the series until the end of 2005, after which the series continued, featuring the Tenth Doctor in 2006. A number of the books have been reprinted in paperback editions, including in North America by Broadway Books. Novels Edit Cancelled novel Edit Tenth Doctor Audiobooks
Doctor Who review: 'Heaven Sent' is a mind-bending masterpiece "Let me be brave," whispered a doomed Clara Oswald last week. 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. 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. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below TARDIS Scanner: - So the Doctor is the Hybrid.

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: 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. His people, the Time Lords, were dead, wiped out in an apocalyptic war against the Daleks that resulted in the total and utter destruction of both races at the hands of the Doctor himself. 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. The Beginning Who Was There?

Algemene site NL - Gentse trouwboeken (1584-1796) Eén van de bepalingen van het Concilie van Trente (1554-1563) leidde tot de vorming van de zogenaamde parochieregisters van geboorte, trouw en overlijden. Het systeem kwam pas traag op gang en vanaf 1584 is voor de meeste Gentse parochies informatie beschikbaar. De trouwboeken (1584-1796) van de Gentse parochies kunnen per parochie doorzocht worden. De kwaliteit van de informatie hangt af van de nauwkeurigheid van de pastoor en van de leesbaarheid van het handschrift. De volledigheid van de informatie laat soms te wensen over: een datum of de familienaam van de echtgenote ontbreekt. De parochies zijn: Sint-Baafs Sint-Pieters Sint-Jacobs Sint-Martinus Sint-Niklaas Sint-Michiels Noord Sint-Michiels Zuid Sint-Salvator en als afzonderlijke enclave het Spaans Kasteel. De vorm van de aangeboden informatie is als volgt: de namen van het koppel de datum van huwelijk of ondertrouw de parochie de namen van de getuigen. In het totaal zijn 91.898 huwelijken beschikbaar.
