This Wednesday I’m recommending the BBC’s Doctor Who YouTube Channel.
As you might know, if you’ve been on my blog long enough, I really love the BBC show Doctor Who, both old and new episodes.
Every week on this channel, there is a ‘Fan Show’ video hosted by Christel Dee. I love this show especially recently since they have been ‘reviewing’ the latest Doctor Who episodes. Christel, joined by Luke Spillane, and usually one or two other guests, discuss the events of the latest episode sharing their favourite moments, their theories and their anticipation for what’s to come. I find these videos very interesting.
Other videos shared on this channel include interviews with the cast, behind the scenes videos, introductions, teasers or trailers for the coming episodes, scenes from old and new episodes and the odd tutorial.
See below for a couple of the Doctor Who videos…

This week’s book recommendation is definitely for the Doctor Who fans because I’ve been reading Wit, Wisdom and Timey-Wimey Stuff: The Quotable Doctor Who which is a lovely book filled with quotes from across the last 50 years of the programme. Written by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright and published in 2014; this book has only recently been released following the incredible 50th Anniversary celebrations of last November.
The book is incredibly well designed, starting with the hardback cover which is just so lovely to hold and finishing with the beautiful illustrations inside.
I feel like this book is perfect for any whovian; whether they’ve only just started watching or whether they’ve only watched the revived series or whether they’ve watched all of Classic Who. I, myself, have watched all of the revived series and many serials from Classic Who but there are still loads I have yet to watch, even so, the quotes in this book are good for those who don’t recognise them, as they still provide information about the Doctor, his companions and his enemies, and for those who do recognise the quotes, it allows the reader to revisit those episodes and to reminisce which is always nice if you’re a fan of the show.
I really like the book, I like the way it’s organised, it’s illustrations and I love that it’s the type of book you can just pick up for a few seconds or if you have more time, sit and read for a while.
