As this article is being written England are winning/losing against Italy in the Euros 2012 - no idea - the stress of watching penalties has led this correspondant to exit stage left and write some content for the website. After all we all know if England don't go out on penalties now, then it'll just happen in the next match.

Were England playing in the Euros when we started Devious? Was Yugoslavia still a country? The USSR or East Germany?

Or the Austro-Hungarian Empire? Yes it does seem rather a while.

Devious the movie features three Tardises.

The Doctor's own Tardis isn't seen until episode two - we see him land on a seemingly deserted beach in order to watch a secret funeral ceremony out at sea. His beach vantage point gives him a great view of the princess's glass galleon as it disolves into a myriad rainbow colours. This is one of the seven hundred wonders of the galaxy according to Phillip.

Well - do we use a photo-realistic backdrop like a Hubble photo composited into shot with After Effects or Lightwave - or do we create a simple starfield. Or do we leave the sky black on the grounds that the stars are hard to see if you're looking at something bright like an asteroid or spaceship - after all in the Apollo missions you can't see the stars very well when they are on the moon due to the glare of the surface.

The chances are we'll go with the prettiest or most evocative of space - doubtless with large purple nebulas and so on.

New Earth - New Doctor

New Earth - an excellent start to the tenure of Mr Tennant! OK so he started in The Christmas Invasion but that was the "save the earth whilst I'm having a regeneration crisis" opener designed to introduce the audience to the idea of regeneration. New Earth was the first true episode for the Tenth Doctor and it bodes well for the new series.

Congratulations as always to the team over in sunny Wales for their continued vision, determination and imagination in bringing this new version of Doctor Who to life.

We read of crossover stories where people have written stories with Dr Who meeting Star Trek etc or somesuch else - they're all over the net if you look - but what about writing a story based on song lyrics alone? Years ago when David, Barry and Ashley ran the BADWAS * David used to produce an enormous magazine some 36 pages long of photocopied stuff all about Dr Who and great fun at that - and in one issue Ashley put a one-page article about the influences/ similarities in the music and lyrics of Gary Numan and Dr Who.
