Day twenty-one: Name a planet that you’d like to visit in the TARDIS. Maybe you’d like to go to the planet the planet of slightly over-inflated beach balls, let us know!
The planet of chocolate!
Yeap, I’d definitely like to see a planet full of chocolate. With lots of different varieties of chocolate and hot chocolate and more chocolate!
Fun fact about me: I love chocolate
Popular comedian, actor and broadcaster Sanjeev Bhaskar is to join the cast of Doctor Who when the series returns to BBC One on 23 August.

30 Days of Summer Time Doctor Who Day twenty: Think of the last movie you saw. Would the protagonist be a good companion? Or maybe they’d be the villain?
The last movie I saw was Submarine. The protagonist, Oliver, is a typical ’80s Welsh schoolboy: self-obsessed, trying to develop (but still lacking) empathy, and ultimately good at heart but just getting lost along the way. He’s a compelling character to watch in a realistic story, but in a story like Doctor Who I don’t think he’d cut it. He’s like a younger Adam Mitchell.
(And while my previous paragraph makes it sound like I think having a teenage boy on board would be a bad thing, I don’t; I truly believe that Adric was a good companion. Adric had a decent sense of logic, though; Oliver lacks that. Adric would sometimes act on his emotions, but Oliver is purely emotionally driven. Not a good thing when thrown into high-stakes situations without another, less impulsive emotion to balance it out).
And villain? Pssh, this kid could barely pull off a break-in.
Oliver: a well-intentioned kid, just someone I wouldn’t invite on the TARDIS.
Mission accomplished! I’m the Doctor’s new companion :D

Think of the last movie you saw. Would the protagonist be a good companion? Or maybe they’d be the villain?
The last movie I saw was How to a Train Your Dragon 2….I’m just having visions of Hiccup and the 12th Doctor where 12 is near constantly just looking at the kid going “Was I this awkward in my last regeneration?!” Because I see a lot of parallels between 11 and Hiccup. Plus Toothless in the TARDIS I just envision a lot of “Get that out of your mouth” “No you can’t jump up there, get down” “Hiccup control your dragon!” And Toothless doesn’t listen to the Doctor at all but will do anything Clara asked him too and is just an oversized lap cat to her much to the Doctors disgruntlement.
So yeah The Doctor, Clara, Hiccup and Toothless….it’s Doctor Who with dragons, what’s not to love!

Day twenty: Think of the last movie you saw. Would the protagonist be a good companion? Or maybe they’d be the villain?
Well, seeing as the last movie I saw was An Adventure in Space and Time… I’m just going to use Verity Lambert. She would be an amazing companion! She overcame so many obstacles while working to prove herself and to make Doctor Who successful, and that takes strength, hard work, and perseverance. Any Doctor would be lucky to have her as a companion.
I painted Arcadia on my wall and it just brings me large amounts of joy when I look at it.
Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude. Compared with Matt Smith’s previous Doctor, Capaldi’s lead character is “a lot fiercer,” says Jenna Coleman, who plays his traveling companion, Clara Oswald. “This man is a total adrenaline junkie.”If you don’t count John Hurt’s one-and-done performance in last year’s 50th-anniversary special, Capaldi is the 12th actor to play the show’s Doctor, a two-hearted alien who travels through space—and time—in his ship, the TARDIS, and periodically regenerates his outward form. The announcement that Capaldi would replace Smith was simulcast last August on Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor. For the most part the casting was received warmly by fans thanks to Capaldi’s Who-tastic résumé, including an appearance in a 2008 episode of the show and in the 2009 spin-off miniseries, Torchwood: Children of Earth. As one EW.com commenter wrote at the time, “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you already know him.”The Scottish actor—whose other credits include World War Z and The Fifth Estate—then made the briefest of cameos in the anniversary show before debuting properly at the end of the 2013 special Christmas episode. His first official ep—the feature-length season premiere titled “Deep Breath”—is set in Victorian England and promises the return of the so-called Paternoster Gang, a trio of detectives made up of the dome-headed alien Strax (Dan Starkey), the lizardlike Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), and her human wife, Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart).
