Doctor Who toys are love...

One of the latest Character Options models - I can't tell for definite, but it might be a Forbidden Planet exclusive - TARDIS (non-electronic, but with opening doors), eleventh Doctor, and Amy in her police/kissogram clothes (the latter of which I don't think has been released before). FP are saying they expect it in stock for December 20th. Just in time to be lining your Christmas stockings! Picture and pre-order link here. I think I'll be trying to get hold of that one. Even though it's not a Dalek.

And BBC4's adaptation of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is airing on Thursday December 16th. At the moment, it's just a one-off pilot, but if the trailer's anything to go by they seem to have managed to fit in large chunks of the plot of the original novel, if the scrawling on the white board is anything to go by. No mean feat.

In readiness, I've been listening to the Dirk Maggs radio adaptations of the Dirk Gently novels, and on a related note, Big Finish's adaptation of Shada. I'm quite fond of Harry Enfield's Dirk Gently, but I think Stephen Mangan will be interesting in the role. (Terrible though it is, I've not really followed his career in any meaningful sense, but still have fond memories of him as Adrian Mole in the Beeb's The Capuccino Years adaptation.)
