Sunday, 27 December 2009


Hello everyone,

As you have probably noticed, we haven`t returned on the 23rd as I said we would. I`m afraid, it`s not just a delay - we are closing permanently. 
I just don`t have time to run the blog. There are many reasons and I`m going to be even busier than I am now in the New Year so I think it`s time to step back. Besides, hardly anyone visits here so it doesn`t seem worth it. Unfortunately, the new design will never be seen, the new pages will never be opened and the online magazine will never be read. It is a shame as I had worked so hard on this blog and on the features I was hoping to launch on January 1st. I`m sure you`ll agree that the blog has been going down hill lately as I have been so busy. I was hoping this would change in the New Year but I`m afraid that it won`t and I don`t want to disappoint.

I would like to thank each and every one of you who are reading this. All of you people who visit the blog, who check back regularly and who subscribe - you`ll all made this such an enjoyable experience. And of course, special thanks must go to Chandra! Our back-up poster did such a wonderful job whenever I was away and was always able to help. He really was a tremendous help. Thank you Chandra!

So this is it, the final goodbye. I hope you have enjoyed the blog while it`s lasted. We`ve been running for 155 days, reached almost 10,000 hits and made 299 posts. It has been brilliant! Thank you all! So, for now this is goodbye. One day, the blog may return, infact, I`m almost certain it will. But for now, it`s time for a break. So in the words of the 1st Doctor, One day, I will come back. Yes, I will come back. Until then there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine :P 
If you want to be the first to know if we`re returning, just subscribe to News Through Time and Space

Before I go, I just want to say you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic... And you know what? So was I! *Regenerates/Logs Off*


Thank You...

We Are Temporarily Closed!


I'm afraid News Through Time and Space is temporarily closed!

I am working on a new design for the blog including new pages which I hope to launch on January 1st and if I am going to do that, I need to concentrate on just that and not post.

We will however, be reopening on Wednesday 23rd December!

Please continue to visit once we are running normally again!

If you'd like to receive updates regarding the closure including the finalised date and time of re-opening, please email me at or fill in this email form and simply put "Updates" in the message box.

Thanks for your understanding and we'll see you on the 21st!


"Christmas Is Cancelled"

Well, not really but since Naismith says that in the End of Time trailer I thought I would too :P
No, Christmas isn't cancelled but I'm afraid our Advent Calendar is...

I'm very busy lately and it's hard enough to post all of the advent stuff in my free time, never mind creating everything for the calendar. I just don't have time and there is no way I can fill all 25 spaces in the calendar. Lots of people promised me they would do things for the calendar and very few have actually done so. So, the advent calendar must end. Hopefully by next year the blog will be more popular and we'll have more contributions to the calendar.

But that's not the only sad news. Also, the blog is temporarily closing...
If I'm going to have the new blog design and pages ready for New Years, there's no way I can post news too (And even without posting news, I'm not sure if I'll be ready in time) so I am going to have to close temporarily while I sort it. Hopefully, we will reopen on Monday 21st December. 

Sorry everyone!

Please stick with us though - normal service will resume by January.


P.S I'm going to post again about the blog closing so it's the first thing visitors see :)

Welcome to Advent!

December is finally here!
And so, advent begins!

As you can see, the blog is a little decorated for Christmas with some lovely Christmas music and our advent calendar is here!

I have been very busy organizing the new advent page (I will be posting the stuff here but linking to it all from the advent calendar over there so that you can find it all in one easy place) so have not had much time to organize todays advent treat.

Firstly, everyday throughout advent we will be posting a brilliant Christmas song to get in the mood for Christmas.
To start things off, now that it's December, it's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

Also, timelord6 has very kindly made a brilliant video for the advent calendar using the Tenth Doctor action figure!

Very good!

And finally, the first part of one of our advent stories can be read now! I have two big stories planned. One I have finished and is a 4-part story which will be posted from 20th-24th December and the other I started writing today and will be posting a part every other day starting today. Not sure how long it will be yet. I am also hoping to do the odd other story too so stay tuned! Anyway, here is Part 1 of Sontarans in the Snow:

The attic of 13 Bannerman Road was full of happiness on December 25th 2009. Luke, still in his pyjamas, and Sarah Jane were opening presents in front of Mr Smith who had a “Merry Christmas” banner on his screen. Luke unwrapped a rectangular shaped present and found inside the new Xbox game that Clyde had told him so much about. “But...” a confused Sarah Jane stuttered “I never got you that!?”. 
“Then, who did?” asked Luke. 
“Merry Christmas” said Mr Smith.
“Mr Smith? You got me this?”.
“Correct” Mr Smith replied.
“But how? You’re a computer!” Luke questioned.
“Exactly, Luke. I’m a computer, I have access to eBay” Mr Smith informed Luke.
“Thanks, Mr Smith!” replied Luke.
“So, Clyde and Rani and their families are still coming over for Christmas Lunch, yes?” Sarah Jane asked Luke.
“Yeah. Gita told me to thank you again. Oh and she said she’ll bring some brussels sprouts” Luke told his Mum.
“Clyde will be pleased” Sarah Jane laughed.
“Sarah Jane...” Mr Smith suddenly started talking again.
“Not aliens?” Sarah Jane asked fearing the worst.
“No. I just thought you might like to know that it is snowing!” he announced. Hearing this, Luke rushed over to the window and broke out in a huge grin as he saw a layer of snow covering Bannerman Road. 
An hour later, the attic was completely empty. Sarah Jane and Luke were out in the street with Rani and Clyde playing in the snow and in the attic, Mr Smith was shut down leaving the room in silence. Then all of a sudden, Mr Smith activated himself in a rush and an “Alert” sign was flashing on his monitor as he said “Alert, Alert – Substance is not snow! Substance is not snow! Sontaran Clone Feed! Sontaran Clone Feed! ". Mr Smith continued to repeat this over and over again but no one was there to hear as the gang continued to throw what they thought were snowballs, at eachother in the street...

Keep checking back to follow the story!

So that is it for today but this is far from the only advent calendar you can visit.
For starters, the official Doctor Who website have their Advent Calendar as always.
The Doctor Who Figures Online Forum will have another advent calendar this year but it will start tomorrow due to Seb, the owner, being very busy. 
And last but certainly not least, VortexGuyz934, the brilliant YouTube channel, has an advent calendar too which we are supporting! Visit everyday for a brilliant advent video!

So there is plenty of stuff to get you in the mood for Christmas!

Remember to come back tomorrow for the next festive treat!


P.S Sorry about the long post. I will be looking into putting the stories somewhere else and just linking to them to save space but I was in a rush today so this will have to do for now.

We Need You!

Following up from my last post, we still really need your help for our advent calendar!

I have almost no ideas for stuff to put in the advent calendar so I really need you lot to send stuff in for us to use. Or even if you can`t make anything, give us some ideas. We really appreciate it.

I`m in the middle of writing two ongoing stories which I`ll post part-by-part over advent but I need more than that so please, if you have some spare time send something in for us to use in our advent calendar!

Don`t forget, when advent is over we`ll do a vote for the best thing that was in the advent calendar and whoever made it will win a prize!



Friday, 27 November 2009

We Are Back!

We're back!

Sorry for disappearing for so long. My very unreliable laptop crashed yet again so I have been unable to get online.

It's fixed now though so everything's good. I've got lots of stuff to sort out though!

Now for the bad news.
Despite me being back, I won't be posting news for awhile yet.
This is because I'm working on..

Our advent calendar!

I've just finished designing it and working out how I will make it interactive but now I need to start working on the content for it. Unfortunetely I haven't already started this because of my laptop crashing so I really need to get a move on.
That's anything - Stories, photos, videos, games, etc. Anything we can use for the advent calendar! If I don't get enough stuff, I will have to cancel the advent calendar. Please help us and send in something for the advent calendar. It will be greatly appreciated. We need stuff in A.S.A.P. Preferably before Dec 1st but you can of course continue to send stuff in throughout advent.

As a thank you, when advent is over we will have a vote for the best thing included in the advent calendar. Whoever created that will win a prize! I'm yet to decide what it will be but it will be good!

You can send your stuff to

So get creative and start working on something for the advent calendar please!

Just an update...

Hi everyone,

I`d just like to apologise for not posting since Thursday or even changing the banner. I`ve just been so busy. I`m working really on our Children in Need celebrations and I`m hoping to launch it all on Tuesday so we have 10 days of fundraising but I`m not sure if it will be ready or not.

Here are my current ideas for CiN which I am working on:
- Scratchcard game I posted about a while ago. 
1 pound to enter. Prize is the new (Not even out until tomorrow!) SJA Series 2 boxset. What do you think about that idea? What do you all think of the prize? Would you enter?

- Sponsor Us. 
Like when people run laps for charity and get sponsors, you can sponsor us for every post we make on Children in Need day. Don`t worry, we won`t do posts for the sake of it.
You could sponsor us for every post we make or just a certain amount for the whole day.

- Donate.
Of course, we will also be open to normal donations.

- Thanks.
As a thank you, everyone who donates over 1 pound (Be it through a competition, sponsoring or just donating) will be send a Children in Need balloon. Also, whoever donates the most money will be sent a 6 inch Pudsey bear! Again, this could be money donated through the competition, through sponsoring or just donating. It can be anything. For example, if you spend £2 on our competition, sponsor us £2.50 for the whole day of posts and donate an extra £2.00, you`re donated total would be £6.50

So please let me know what you all think of those ideas and as soon as possible.
Feel free to suggest other things too.

I`d also appreciate it if you could just let me know if you think you`ll donate in one way or another or not. I`d just like to see how popular this will be before we do it.

This is all going to cost me over £25 to run but I am willing to do that so I really hope you can donate some money.

So let me know what you think.

The Eternity Trap: Part One

Absolutely brilliant episode and very creepy! Surprised they went that far with a children's show but I am so glad they did. 

Really, really good episode. Only down-point was the annoying scientist guy (Toby?). 
Oh and I thought it was so much better without Luke in. It's a shame that if Luke ever leaves, the show probably will because from that episode, I think it works much better without him.

I think this would of been even better if it went before The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith because it would of been great to get everyone ready for Halloween.

So, yes. Excellent episode and Part 2 looks brilliant.


Classic Who Online!

A deal has been done between BBC Worldwide and MSN Video to supply classic episodes of Doctor Who online. The stories are available free on the MSN website and has started with 1965 William Hartnell story, The Web Planet. New episodes will be added every Tuesday and Friday as of 10th November.


Never Mind The Daleks

Phil Jupitus who is well known for being a team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks is talking about a Never Mind the Buzzcocks Doctor Who Christmas Special on Twitter.
Apparently it will star Bernard Cribbins and Jo Whiley on Phil's team and Noel Fielding's team will feature Catherine Tate and Jamie Cullum. To make it even better, Mr David Tennant will be the guest presenter.

No transmission date has been announced but it is expected to be during the week leading up to Christmas and apparently, they recorded it yesterday.


DWM: Issue 415 Cover

Issue 415 of Doctor Who Magazine is in the shops in one week and here is the lovely cover:

Click to enlarge

The magazine costs £3.99 and is available from WHSmith, Asda and all good newsagents.


Happy Fireworks Night!

Happy Fireworks Night one and all!
After a few issues with Blogger over the last few days, we are back with a bang in true Guy Fawkes Night style! That's right, for one night only we have a lovely new banner to celebrate the 5th of November! You can of course see it up above today but incase you're looking back at some old blog posts in a few months time, here is today's banner just for you:

Click to enlarge

So we're back and will be posting all of the latest news shortly and I'm going to be more busy than ever with the blog as in just under two months time, the new blog layout and pages will hopefully be up and running so I really need to get a move on with that.

News Through Time and Space wishes you a brilliant Bonfire Night and if you're going near fireworks, please stay safe.

Just a quick "thanks"

I just wanted to say a quick thanks to MJF, a64 and of course DoctorWhoDave for deeming my entry good enough to come first in the Halloween comp. A very nice surprise. I really don't think mine was the best though!

I nearly withdrew my entry after submitting it as I didn't want Dave to look bias if he thought my entry was good enough for a prize! But I then decided that he would make the right decision whatever he decided to do and he showed that by asking a64 and MJF to help him judge. :)

Well done to Thay and DS08, your entry's were brilliant and also to Dalek 101 and Teh BURN.

The whole thing was a really nice surprise.



Happy Halloween!

Trick or Treat?!


Halloween Contest Results!

Yes, it's the moment you've all been waiting for, it's the Halloween Contest results!

We received five brilliant entries and it was very hard to judge them.
I`d just like to thank everyone who entered. 

Now because Chandra entered I realised that people might think it`s unfair that I was judging as Chandra helps with the blog even though I was judging impartially. Therefore, I got two more judges so that this was completely fair. So big thanks to a64 and MarthaJonesFan for helping to judge the contest!
Each rank equalled one point so for example, if two of the judges ranked an entry as 1st and the other ranked it as 2nd, that would be 14 points out of 15 and the entry with the most points won.

Like I said, it was really hard to judge and I hope no one is disappointed about the results. It was very close but here are the results.
Click any of the images to enlarge them.

5th - Teh BURN
We really like it and think that it is a very creative entry but we also feel that it would have been better if it was darker

4th - Dalek101
We think it's a good picture and the lighting has been used well but it isn't too Halloween-y

3rd - DalekSupreme08
We think it has a great sense of mystery and the lighting is lovely. Simple but effective.

2nd - Dalek Thay
We think it is a very original entry, very spooky and very nicely lit. Clearly alot of effort has gone into it.

1st - Chandra
We think it's very funny and a brilliant idea. Lovely, clear photography and wonderful editing. 

So congratulations everyone who won a prize and commiserations those who didn't. All of the entries were brilliant.

Here's a reminder of the prizes:

- 1st Place (Chandra): Dalek Bag, Doctor Who Series One Volume One DVD, Doctor Who Series One Volume Four DVD, Mini TARDIS and some Power Rollers, Doctor Who Pencil Case, Moving TARDIS notepad, exclusive Davros top trumps card, Classic Doctor Who DVD's, the Stone Rose audio (Only part 2, sadly), Davros planner, Doctor Who Quiz Book, Doctor Who: Forever Autumn (The perfect read for halloween), Forbidden Planet leaflet, Doctor Who stickers and two fake Halloween scabs

- 2nd Place (Dalek Thay): Doctor Who DVD Files Volume One (DVD), Planet of the Dead pencil case and stationary, Doctor Who notepad and a Dalek sticker pack

- 3rd Place (DalekSupreme08): Rose DVD, Plastic Fob Watch, Cyber Leader Mask, Cyber Pencil Case

I will be sending them out next week and will be emailing all of you winners sometime tonight.

Thanks ever so much to everyone who entered. I am so glad that this was a success. 

Finally, Happy Halloween everyone!

The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Part 2 Thoughts

I haven't got much to say really but what an amazing episode of SJA! My favourite yet!
A very touching episode and it was great to see the Doctor meet the kids. The scenes with all of them were brilliant and I so wish they had gone for a trip in the TARDIS. The only fault is how the Trickster was defeated. It's just getting boring with people going back on their agreement to defeat him. However, the episode was still absolutely brilliant and I loved the ending. Very emotional with SJ and the Doctor.

A must see adventure.


Series Five News

There is a news report on the BBC website which included some interesting facts:

- Six of the thirteen episodes are written by Steven Moffat

- His biggest challenge is the climax to the series which he is currently writing

- The Tardis has undergone a significant makeover and is based on the Peter Cushing movie version.


The Waters of Mars Confirmed Transmission

David Tennant was on GMTV this morning and whilst on, he announced when The Waters of Mars is going to be aired. It will be shown at 7pm on Sunday 15th November.
I personally think that is a terrible date. It should have been on a Saturday and to make it even better, it should have been on Halloween.

Anyway, here is the full interview with Tennant:


Halloween Celebration!

Tomorrow is Halloween!
So to celebrate, we've decorated the banner in a Halloween-y way. Sorry it looks so terrible.

We've also got our Halloween Contest. You've got until midnight tomorrow to enter (I've extended the deadline) but do hurry! Please consider entering!

We then have the results on Halloween night at 6pm and hopefully a few other surprises (I have a few ideas but PM or email me with any Halloween ideas you have please).

So what will you be doing on Halloween night? Let us know!
I myself am not going Trick or Treating this year so I`m just going to have a marathon of some scary Doctor Who episodes.

Also, don`t forget that the owner of Doctor Who Figures Online, Sebastian Hamilton, will be making a big announcement about his brilliant comic, Timeslip, over on the forum on the 31st.

Halloween is going to be brilliant!

SJA Videos

Lots of SJA videos!

First of all, the Next Time trailer for Part 2 of TWOSJS:

Secondly, here's a video of Tommy and Daniel on the CBBC Channel (They've been appearing on and off all day):

And finally, a video of Nigel Havers on The Alan Titchmarch show:


The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Part 1 Thoughts

Phew - I got back from town just in time to see SJA and what an amazing episode it was.

Some thoughts:

- Rivalry between K9 and Mr Smith was brilliant but I think they went over the top with K9 and he got annoying
- Hearing the TARDIS all the time got very exciting
- I thought that I recognized the alien in the box - it was of course Travis Colon from Mark of the Berserker
- It all felt quite rushed. I think they should of either done a mega 3 episode thing or an hour and a half special
- The ring making SJ think she'd done things and making her decide to do things was very intriguing
- So glad they made excuses for Maria and the Brigadier not being there. Although I was hoping Maria might make a surprise appearance. Also, for those who don't know - the Brigadier was going to be in the episode but he couldn't because Nicholas Courtney suffered a stroke when they were due to film. He has now however made a full recovery
- Ending was brilliant. I thought it would end with the Doctor shouting "Stop this wedding now!" but it kept on going and was extremely exciting
- Can't wait to see K9 and the Doctor reunited

So it was a very good episode but could of done with being longer. Still one of my favorite episodes though and the best is yet to come.

Can't wait for tomorrow!

Sarah Jane Adventures Reminder

Don't forget that tonight, part 1 of The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith is aired on BBC1 at 4:35pm!

The Doctor isn't in it until the very end but tomorrow we'll have 25 minutes of Tennant to enjoy!

A nice little coincidence - tonight we see the Doctor on our TV's once more (Albeit for only a few seconds) and it was one year ago today that the Doctor himself, Mr David Tennant, announced his departure from the TARDIS.
Since then we've had two brilliant hours of Doctor Who and we've still got over 200 minutes of Tennant to enjoy (Including Specials, SJA, Dreamland etc.). The best is yet to come!

Don't forget we start our Halloween celebrations today with a new banner.
I'm not sure when it will be up as I have to go to town first and then come home and make the banner (I did it a few days ago but it was somehow deleted) but it will be today!

Halloween Contest Update!

Hi everyone,

Below is a photo I have made for Halloween. This is the sort of thing you can do for the Halloween contest but it doesn't have to be dramatic - it could be funny or anything!

Not very good. I only have Powerpoint and it was done very quickly. What's more is I only have one Sea Devil so I had to do split screen and for the first time.

But there's an idea to get your creative juices flowing!

Please enter! I've only had two entries so far (But they have been great)!
I've also now added two Halloween costume scabs (To put on skin) to the first prize! There are so many brilliant prizes available!

You've only got until midnight on Friday to enter so hurry!

K9: The Series Preview

This Saturday (Halloween) there is a 30 minute preview of the 2010 Disney K9 series on Disney XD.

A preview of the preview (:P) has been released and can be seen below:

Don't miss the big preview on Saturday!
6pm on Disney XD (Sky Channel - 607, Virgin - 707)


Sarah Jane Adventures Advent Calendar

I have been thinking about how good it would be to have a Sarah Jane Adventures advent calendar.
What with there being no Doctor Who advent calendar this year (As far as I know), the SJA as popular as ever and the Doctor appearing this series, I think it could have sold really well. I'm surprised they haven't made any SJA advent calendars - SJA is always on in Autumn when the advent calendars go on sale and previous series' have ended in December when advent calendars are "being used" so I really think they could have done well.

Anyway, I've done a mock-up of what a SJA advent calendar might look like. Not very good but the only software I have is Powerpoint.
Hope you like it!

If you repost it anywhere, please include a link to this blog.

Let me know what you think!


Nigel Havers Interview

Nigel Havers has appeared on GMTV to talk about his role of Peter Dalton in the upcoming episode of SJA, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith. In the interview, he seems very excited about the episode and we also see a very exciting clip which we haven't seen before now.

The interview including the new clip can be seen below:

Sarah Jane Adventures: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith

This weekend, there were some advance screenings of part one of The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith in Liverpool following by a Q&A session with the cast and there were also lots of fun SJA activities throughout the day. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the event but subscriber, timelord6 was there. He has very kindly written up an exclusive preview of the episode for News Through Time and Space! Don't worry, it doesn't give away any major parts of the plot!
Here it is:

The episode started nicely with hints of mystery and as the episode progressed, little hints of the ending came along. There were plenty of laughs and quirky situations involving Sarah Jane's boyfriend and the gang and some funny scenes including K9 and Mr Smith. The climax of the episode was very interesting to watch with Clyde at the ready for something bad to happen while Luke and Rani were enjoying themselves and then just as it seemed everything was fine...
BANG! The cliffhanger came and then the credits...

Great review there! Thanks timelord6! A brilliant NTTAS exclusive!
I can't wait to see the episodes! Not much longer for the rest of us to wait!


Filming Continues

The Doctor Who team are still filming in the graveyard and some lovely photos including some very nice ones of the Doctor and Amy can be seen here.

Huge thanks to Scooty for taking and sharing them.


The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Trailers

Here is the TV trailer for The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith I was referring to yesterday:

As you can see, The Trickster has put the church in limbo (as he did with Maria back in Series One) as I rightly predicted.

Also, here is the Next Time trailer:

I really can not wait!

The News Through Time And Space Calendar

After a short delay, I am now able to announce the brand new News Through Time and Space Calendar! It's a new, online, interactive calendar which is full of all sorts of Doctor Who dates - from upcoming releases to TV broadcasts! You'll never miss an important Who date ever again!

You can click on any item on the calendar for more details and you can also decide whether you want to view the calendar by week, month or as an agenda! It's brilliant!

I really hope this helps people keep up to date with all Doctor Who dates!
Please feel free to send me feedback - it's greatly appreciated.

There are a few changes I need to make (E.g You currently need to scroll down to see the calendar - I've been trying to fix that but at the moment it doesn't seem possible) which I will do soon but it's here and that's the main thing.


There will be a link in the sidebar shortly but for now, please use the links in this post.


SJA Update

I was right!
I said that it looked like in The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, The Trickster puts the church in "limbo" and I was right! I just saw a new trailer (Not the next time trailer) on the CBBC channel (After The Mad Woman in the Attic repeat) and it showed the church clearly in limbo. Also, as soon as The Doctor runs in and shouts "Stop this wedding now!", the Trickster appears and makes himself along with Sarah Jane and Peter disappear.

Wow, this looks very exciting.
We'll have the trailer up as soon as it becomes available!


The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Teasers

Digital Spy have shared some great teasers from next week's SJ adventure, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith. I have posted them below but some are a bit cryptic so I have added my thoughts on those ones in italic.

1. DT is technically in both episodes, but he doesn't appear right until the end of the first one. His opening words? "Stop this wedding now!"

2. Ahh yes, the wedding. Sarah Jane is getting married! To Nigel Havers. Erm, correction: a businessman called Peter Dalton who is played by Nigel Havers.

3. Yes, their relationship moves quickly - although there is a lot of use of things like "one week later".

4. But that aside, there's definitely something untoward going on here. Who's to blame? Why, it's Sarah Jane's old friend The Trickster!

5. When The Doctor shows up, he's quickly parted from Sarah Jane (and the TARDIS). He's got the kids to help him out, though.

6. The Doctor says two of his standard catchphrases: "Allons-y" and "I'm so sorry."

7. The Doctor is referred to as "the man of ice and fire" and is told that "the gate is waiting for you".
Reference to The End of Time but what gate? The Gate of Elysium? And presumably, it's the Trickster who says it

8. One of the kids receives a massive shock. Literally.
Electric shock and presumably, it's Clyde who gets it because in the Series Three trailer, him and the Trickster are sort of giving eachother electric shocks

9. Words are nice, but here are two exclusive pictures from the episodes:

10. The story ends with an exchange between Sarah Jane and The Doctor that provoked tears at DS Towers. And she has a final line that we'll all be thinking around Christmas time: "No-one's **** ***** ** ****** ***."
No-one's ever going to defeat you

I for one am extremely excited!

Also, there are some advance screenings of The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith in Liverpool today which, no doubt, everyone will be posting about. It will probably ruin many surprises in the episodes but there's not much chance of being able to avoid the spoilers so I will be posting anything that other people post.

Doctor Who: Children In Need

Russell had said this before but it has now been confirmed - this Children in Need, we will see a preview of the Christmas special like last year.

This means that by 20th November (CiN), we will have seen The Waters of Mars so it's most likely going to be broadcast on Saturday 7th November or Saturday 14th! Not long then!

Oh and don't forget we'll be celebrating Children in Need here at News Through Time And Space and raising money! Hopefully the celebrations and fundraising will start on 1st November after our Halloween celebration and competition! Stay tuned!


The Mad Woman in the Attic: Part 2

Here are my thoughts on Part 2 of The Mad Woman in the Attic.

Bad points:
- Do they have to use Clyde's intro every episode? It's just getting annoying
 - Sarah Jane's flashbacks were very undramatic and fast
- If time was changed so that Luke was still alive, surely Luke would have SJ's house?

Good points:
- Bit with future and past Rani ending sentences in mirror together was good
- K9! Hooray! 
- "I'm in a spaceship under a beach" Best line ever
- Mr Smith: Will you be staying here now?
  K9: Affirmative
  Mr Smith: Oh...good
  Ha ha! I look forward to more scenes with the two of them!
- An alien, a spaceship, a caretaker and a teenager!? That's a spinoff just waiting to happen! Lol!
- Great twist with the boy fixing time. Didn't see that coming. I thought it would be resolved in current time, not future.
- The trailer for next time was great. Looks like as soon as The Doctor runs in saying "Stop this wedding now!", the whole room starts shaking and that's when The Trickster appears. I think the church is then put into "limbo" (Like Maria was in Whatever Happened To Sarah Jane) because in trailers, the Trickster is seen floating around outside the church just like in limbo.

Overall a really good episode. The best in the series so far. Series Three is starting to look up.


Sarah Jane Adventures News

Lots of SJA news!

First of all, don't forget that part 2 of The Mad Woman in the Attic is on today at 4:35pm on BBC1.

Here are some of my thoughts on Part 1:
- Much, much better than Prisoner of the Judoon but still not living up to Series Two
- I hate the new format! 25 minutes just seems too short!
- The future scenes are set in the same year as The Waters of Mars is set
- Nice reference to the Time War

Part 2 looks like it's going to be great especially since we're going to see The Doctor!
Yes, that's right! Infact, we'll be seeing three of them!
In the same way that Eve looked into Rani's future in part 1, she'll look into Sarah Jane's future in part 2 but will also look into her past! So we will see flashbacks of the Third and Fourth Doctor's (Footage will be from The Time Warrior, Planet of the Spiders, The Hand of Fear and The Five Doctor's) and as for the future, we will see the TARDIS materializing in Sarah Jane's attic with the phrase "He is returning, he is coming back". Then towards the end of the episode, there's another glimpse into the future where we'll see the Tenth Doctor and we don't mean the next time trailer! And if that's not enough for you, K9 is finally back too! But Mr Smith isn't very pleased about that.

Also, there is a two page spread in the Radio Times about next week's story, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, which sees The Trickster and The Doctor finally meet. 

The story has also made the front cover of Total TV Guide:

A lovely promotional picture for The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith has now been released and can be seen below:

And there are lots of brilliant photos from the episode over on Den of Geek including some lovely photos of the SJA gang onboard the TARDIS and of the Trickster at the wedding!
Make sure you check them out!

And that's it for now!
Next week looks very exciting though!
