Cracks in Time...

...they're still coming! Has the Doctor got rid of ALL the cracks in time yet? Think I found one in this piece of paper.

Today, I was told to give ideas for a festival on this piece of paper seen above. I then accidentally dropped it on the floor, before it got caught under the leg of a chair someone was sitting on. I tried pulling the paper out, but when I realized that I teared it, I asked the person sitting in the chair to move their chair up so I could get the paper. But when I looked at the tear in the paper, I couldn't believe that it conquinesdently looks like the crack in time seen throughout series five of Doctor Who - not a fake!

Doctor Who Magazine - Issue 428

The cover and info on this month's edition of Doctor Who Magazine:

This month’s Doctor Who Magazine is a soap-tastic special edition featuring your favourite stars from the worlds of both Doctor Who and soaps!

Among the Doctor Who luminaries DWM chats to is former producer Phil Collinson, now in charge at Coronation Street. But which one does Phil prefer…?
“Oh, blimey!” says Phil. “I love both of them, although they sort of share the same place in my memories. Both you can sit and watch with the whole family. I remember watching Corrie with my grandmother when I was a little boy. It was the sort of thing everybody had a view on and talked about. In the same way they did with Doctor Who. Although with Corrie, characters like Ena Sharples and Elsie Tanner were almost friends of my grandmother."
“My mum and she would talk about them as if they were real - what Elsie’s been up to and ‘what about that husband?’ Somehow they were tangible. And I suppose that’s been the main difference between the two shows. Doctor Who’s a fairytale about a world you’d like to disappear to, and Coronation Street is the world you’re in.”
Also in this issue:

SOAP CHAT!
DWM talks exclusively to even more actors who have appeared in both soaps and Doctor Who, including:

·  Lousie Jameson, who played the Fourth Doctor’s assistant Leela, remembers her time in both Doctor Who and EastEnders!
·  The legendary Dot Cotton, actress June Brown, on facing Irongron in The Time Warrior!
·   Rovers Return regular, actress Helen Worth, on playing against Pertwee in Colony in Space!
·   Walford’s Patrick, actor Rudolph Walker on filming The War Games!
·   Corrie’s Vernon Tomlin, actor Ian Reddingston, on clowning around in The Greatest Show in the Galaxy!
·   Albert Square’s Zainab Masood, actress Nina Wadia on being the doctor in The Eleventh Hour! 
·   EastEnders’ Heather, actress Cheryle Fergison, on being blitzed in The Empty Child!
·   Emmerdale stalwart Frazer Hines on playing 60s companion Jamie McCrimmon!

THE GREATEST SOAP IN THE GALAXY!
Is Doctor Who not only the best sci-fi show ever made, but also the best soap opera ever? Is EastEnders shown on TV in the Doctor Who universe - or is it vice versa? And is Corrie’s Ken Barlow really the Doctor?! Find out the answers to these, and many more intriguing questions, as DWM looks at Doctor Who’s relationship with the soaps from the 1960s right up the present day, and talks exclusively to Doctor Who writers Mark Gatiss, Gareth Roberts and Rupert Laight!

EASTENDERS!
An adventure featuring the first seven Doctors and a menagerie of monsters…  set in EastEnders‚ Albert Square?! It can only be the most bizarre, unpredictable and utterly bonkers Doctor Who story ever - Dimensions in Time! The Fact of Fiction digs deep to uncover all the fascinating secrets behind this, the oddest of adventures!

HOME AND AWAY!
While Doctor Who’s executive producer Piers Wenger stays Broadcasting House, his fellow execs are away at a top secret meeting with one of the writers of the next series. Find out who that is - and get some tantalising clues as to what lies ahead for the Doctor, Rory and Amy in 2011 - as we eavesdrop on Steven Moffat's Production Notes!

The Doctor Who Experience: Press Pack

The BBC Press Office have released a press pack on the new Doctor Who Experience adventure walk-through, coming early next year:

BBC Worldwide invite you on a journey of a lifetime. Step inside the TARDIS this spring to take a starring role in your very own Doctor Who adventure at the Doctor Who Experience.

Opening in London on Sunday 20th February 2011 at London's Olympia Two venue, the Doctor Who Experience promises to be an unmissable adventure featuring an exhilarating and unique walk-through experience and an awe-inspiring exhibition.

Visitors will be invited to step through a crack in time to become the Doctor's companion on an adventure. Their challenge will be to reunite the Doctor with the TARDIS whilst fending off threats from a Dalek spaceship and Weeping Angels along the way, before exploring the wonders of Doctor Who at an out of this world exhibition.

The Doctor Who Experience allows visitors to join the Doctor on a journey through time and space, encountering some of the best-loved and scariest monsters from the hit international television series. Special scenes filmed with current Doctor Matt Smith combine with amazing special effects and the chance to enter a recreation of the modern TARDIS interior topped off by a breathtaking 3-D finale. The walk through experience is a fully contained interactive Doctor Who adventure, which puts the public at the heart of the action.

The exhibition element of the Doctor Who Experience will chart the success of the show from the first series in 1963 to the most recent episodes starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. Displays will include items never seen before including original costumes, the Tom Baker TARDIS police box and two authentic TARDIS sets from the eras of David Tennant and Peter Davison. The public will also be able to get up close and personal with iconic sets from recent series, including the Pandorica Box and Chair and confront numerous monsters including several generations of the Daleks and Cybermen as well as Silurians, an Ice Warrior and a Zygon.

Steven Moffat, Executive Producer and show runner for the hit television series comments: "The Doctor Who Experience is a fan's dream come true - a fully interactive adventure that will allow viewers of the show to get as close as possible to some of the scariest monsters from the series. It will also be the first time that Doctor Who artefacts from all the show's 47 year history - classic and new - will be on display together, many of them being seen for the first time. And never mind that, this is the day the Doctor teaches you how to fly the TARDIS through time and space, and takes you into battle with all his deadliest enemies in a brand new adventure. So steady your nerves and bring your own sofa - the Doctor needs you!"

Doctor Who star, Matt Smith, who has recorded a series of special, new scenes exclusive to the Doctor Who Experience comments: "The whole concept of the Doctor Who Experience, which will give fans a chance to star in their very own Doctor Who adventure, is massively exciting! I hope as many people as possible enjoy boarding the TARDIS next year to embark upon an exhilarating and sometimes terrifying adventure through time and space."

BBC Worldwide is pleased to announce that it is planning to relocate the Doctor Who Experience to a long term home in Cardiff in 2012.

The Doctor Who Experience promises to be an unmissable adventure for the whole family to enjoy. The Doctor needs your help - are you brave enough to step in to the TARDIS and join the adventure?
