    Is that the new TV series where all dead Dr Who actors go?

    It's written by Chris Chibnall as well! Caught about seven seconds of this last night. Great stuff!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    I've been watching some old Richard Carpenter Dick Turpins over Christmas. Episodes 1 to 3, in no particular order, have produced Lesley Dunlop, David Daker, Don Henderson, the woman who plays the maid in Evil of the Daleks part 2, and of course Christopher Benjamin.

    As an aside, if they'd wanted a Tennant sort of Doctor (youngish & flirty) in the late 70s, what about Richard O'Sullivan...?

    That's a question a lot of us have asked over the years...

    I didn't realise whilst watching it, but Henry Soskin in The Avengers (Death a la Carte). Rather surprised to learn from Wiki that it is in fact the stage name of DW writer Henry Lincoln!

    Revisiting The Professionals S1 on BD has offered up a fair share of Who personnel, but it was a lovely hat trick in the last episode to find Lalla Ward, Bernard Kay and a somewhat brief turn for Michael Sheard.

    Since it was Richard III's funeral today, I watched the first episode of Blackadder/The Black Adder last night, with Brian Blessed, Elsped Gray and Tim McInerry of course, and Peter Benson from Terminus.

    Followed up in The Wringer with Peter Sallis, Paul Whitsun-Jones and Barry Letts, whom I didn't even recognise until the credits rolled.

    Talking of Peter, he was voicing me again in A Matter Of Loaf And Death on t'BBC yesterday. More Wensleydale, Gromit!

    And on Friday night I was watching The Black Adder episode 3, with Arthur Hewlitt and an almost unrecognisable "Russell Enoch".

    Watching the 1962 film The Password is Courage starring the always-watchable and very easy on the eye Dirk Bogarde. Yes I know he wasn't in Who, but who else do we have? Ah yes - Olaf Pooley and Mark Eden And allo allo - look who's in it too

    Don't ask her, she couldn't make up her mind how to spell her own name...

    It's only because of Anneka Rice that I had any idea how to pronounce it!

    And Anneke dear, the surname as well - an a goes where you put the i, which should go immediately before the s. Another bampot in the family...

    Just spotted Arthur Darvill as time traveller Rip Hunter in the trailer to the forthcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off, Legends Of Tomorrow.



    There seems to be a bit of a tradition forming here with former cast members of Doctor Who being cast in big-budget US superhero series/films...first, Christopher Eccleston in Heroes, John Barrowman in Arrow, Karen Gillan in Guardians Of The Galaxy, and now Arthur Darvill in Legends Of Tomorrow.
