Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

  • Unexplored Realms - It is well over four years since Virgin launched the New Adventures. Now they have three popular Doctor Who fiction strands and an increasingly busy non-fiction department. Shelf Life's Dave Owen recently met up with editor Rebecca Levene and a few of the New Adventures authors in an attempt to find out more about the stories that "take the TARDIS into previously unexplored realms of space and time."

Interviews / Profiles[]

  • Maiden Voyage - Verity Lambert was the first producer of Doctor Who, and helped steer the show through its troubled journey to the screen, while simultaneously facing down resentment and bigotry within an inflexible and misogynistic BBC. In the first of a two-part interview, she talks to Peter Griffiths about those daunting but invigourating first months.
