I've got a longer post in me about Doctor Who this weekend and about science fiction in general thanks to some whining I did over on my LiveJournal and some helpful insights that I got in return, but while that ferments, here's some Who gossip for ya.
The Sun is reporting that there's a Doctor Who spin-off for children in the works featuring former Who Companions Sarah Jane Smith (Elizabeth Sladen) and K-9. The characters are from the legendary and beloved Tom Baker (the guy with the scarf) era of the show and are rumored to appear in an upcoming episode of the new series.
I'm pretty sure that this rumor has been around for a very long time, and the BBC isn't confirming anything about it. But no one's outright denying it either, so who knows? Something to watch.
...you mean like that mid/late-80s K-9 and Company special? That never got picked up for anymore? Ha!!
And remember .. Sarah Jane was originally a Pertwee companion that crossed over...
Yeah, that's what I was thinking of. If I ever knew that it actually got made, I'd forgotten it.
I do remember that Sarah Jane was originally a Pertwee gal. I liked her, but she wasn't as cool as some of Baker's other companions like Leela, Romana, and -- briefly -- Nyssa.
...only if you mean Mary Tamm Romana. Ha!
We might have ta rumble. I'm a Lalla Ward guy. :)
