DW Poll, Publicity Photos, & Warwick Davis

Just catching up on a few little things. The Radio Times did a poll asking people what their favourite telly is, and received something like 30,000 responses. Doctor Who came in on top for drama, naturally enough. Blue Peter swept the children's category, so let's celebrate with one of the many, many crossovers between the two shows...


And if you haven't seen it yet, the Radio Times also has an interview with one Don Smith, who took the initial publicity photographs for the show back in 1963. Worth reading in its entirety, especially for an amusing anecdote about Daleks.   

In other news, Warwick Davis gave the Independent an interview. There's only one paragraph about DW, so for brevity we'll just quote it below.

"Appearing in 'Dr Who' was my greatest role
I played this character Porridge [alongside Matt Smith, in the penultimate episode of series seven, "Nightmare in Silver"], and I felt there was so much going on with that role, in terms of who he really was. He's a guy that's emperor of the universe. And, like me, he'd had a lot of success, but was trying to be a real person even though the pressure of his job was huge. That resonated with me and it touched a lot of people. That will definitely go on my showreel."
