30 days of Doctor Who

Day fourteen: Mods are asleep! Anything goes!

I built a model Torchwood Hub from scratch to go with the action figures. It took 4 years to build and I’ve still a bit to do once my hand recovers from CTS surgery!

Mods are asleep! Anything goes!

BBC Doctor Who Blog - Brian Minchin confirmed as New Executive Producer of Doctor Who
BBC Cymru Wales has announced that Brian Minchin is to be the new Executive Producer of Doctor Who, alongside showrunner Steven Moffat.
Brian Minchin is an Executive Producer in BBC Wales drama, currently working on The Game, a new Cold War spy thriller from Toby Whithouse for BBC One, and Wizards Vs Aliens, Russell T Davies’ hit show for CBBC. He has also worked as BBC Executive Producer on Dirk Gently and Being Human.
Brian produced the RTS award-winning and BAFTA nominated series The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as the UK sections of Torchwood: Miracle Day and was Assistant Producer on Torchwood: Children of Earth.
Brian, who grew up in Aberystwyth, joined the department in Cardiff in 2005 as a Script Editor working on BBC One Wales drama Belonging, before moving on to network dramas Doctor Who and Torchwood in the same role.
Brian says: “I’m thrilled and excited to be joining Steven Moffat on a show that has meant so much to me over the years. I’ve watched in awe as Steven has taken Doctor Who to wild and imaginative places and I can’t wait to get started on many more adventures with the Doctor.”
Faith Penhale, Head of Drama Wales, says: “I’ve no doubt Doctor Who will enjoy a very exciting time with Brian at the helm working alongside Steven. Since joining BBC Wales in 2005, he’s proved he has a fantastic eye for story and a sharp awareness of what makes a drama like Doctor Who unmissable.”
Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, adds: “When I first took over Doctor Who, Brian was there as script editor, and in the most difficult time of a new Doctor and a new era, was completely brilliant. We lost him to producing The Sarah Jane Adventures at the end of our first run. Rising talent keeps rising, is how I comforted myself back then - but now I am beyond happy that Brian has risen all the way back to Doctor Who, in his new role of Executive Producer. I look forward to getting hopelessly lost in space and time with him.”

'Arrow' exec talks about the casting of John Barrowman casting: 'I'm a Doctor Who fan'

I’m a lifelong Doctor Who fan.  Like Peter Davison/Colin Baker, lifelong fan.  So, when John Barrowman’s name came up for this part, they said, “Well, you should call him, Andrew,” which was amazing.  I basically laid out the plan that we had for his character, and who he is and how he relates to everybody and what’s going on because we didn’t have a lot written, and I said, “So, I guess I’m asking you to take a leap of faith.” 

He said, “It’s funny, seven years ago, Russell T. Davies told me to take a leap of faith with him, and I hear your passion and creativity the way I heard his.  So, let’s do it!” 

What’s most exciting is that he’s not playing Jack.  This is a completely different character.  He’s just such a tremendously talented actor, and it’s one of the things we’re most proud of with the show.

Vortex Manipulator

A vortex manipulator was a form of basic time travel used by the Time Agency of the 51st century. It had additional capabilities as well. Time Agents were each given a vortex manipulator. Vortex manipulators used and issued by the Time Agency were housed in leather wrist-straps with a covering flap, enabling the device to be worn conveniently by the Time Agent without drawing attention to the device itself.
Although it was generally used by the Agency, the Family of Blood stole one to follow the Tenth Doctor around the universe.

Time Lord “Mary Poppins” in Google Maps in Cardiff(!?!)
fireflyastoria:

So I was fiddling between Google and MapCrunch and do you know what I found?
Do you know who that is? Yep, that’s Mary Poppins.
Do you know where that is? Yep, that’s Cardiff. Specifically, that’s outside the Roald Dahl Plass.
Do you know what the Roald Dahl Plass is? Yep, the roof of Torchwood.
Do you know why Torchwood is there? Yep, that’s because of the rift in Cardiff, specifically that rift for a specific reason.
Do you know where the Doctor re-fuels the TARDIS?
So tumblr was right.
Mary Poppins IS the Doctor.
