Stetsons are cool, series gimmicks aren’t
By Pete at Bad Wilf

Pete makes a stab at identifying what worked and didn’t in the 2011 series of Doctor Who.

Delivering television seasons in halves and specials is nice; it’s convenient for producers and puts the show higher in the audience’s recent memory.

Petter Solberg (aiming to bounce back from his exclusion in France): “With the pace we have had on the past events, I am really excited about Spain. It has been so much fun being able to put up a really good fight with the other drivers, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. As the first day in Spain is gravel, we do have a good start position, which hopefully will benefit us. The next two days are Tarmac only, and I think we showed in France that we could be really fast on Tarmac.”...

Talking Point: if a TV series changes its cast,

Spooks has burned through many leads over 10 series (from Rupert Penry-Jones to Richard Armitage), while Doctor Who has change built into its very DNA, with eleven actors having played The Doctor since 1963.
