The Fish People




Fish people were Humans who had been surgically altered by Damon to survive underwater. They possessed scaly skin, large fish-like eyes, gills and fins. The Atlanteans used the fish people to gather the plankton which they needed for food.

Sean and Jacko convinced the fish people to go on strike as part of the Doctor's plan to defeat Professor Zaroff. From "The Underwater Menace" 1967.

Doctor Who Prescribes Red Pills?


After playing a gig in November 2009 at a Doctor Who fans convention in Manchester, for which they'd specially recorded a limited edition CD, "Bigger on The Inside", they were approached by a filmmaker who offered to film a video free of charge, for one of the Doctor Who themed tracks.

"In fact, Sylvester McCoy - who played Doctor Who in the 1980s, bought a copy. We offered him a free copy but he insisted on paying for it - what a nice man! more

Doctor Who Fan Builds His Own Dalek

A die-hard ‘Doctor Who’ fan octor Rob Bosher, who has built a full-size Dalek replica all by himself, for himself. The 47-year-old, from Birtley, Gateshead. He has spent around £700 on the build, using off-cuts of wood and scrap or charity shop items where possible. The robot has a base of an electric wheelchair, with a joystick-type control to direct its movements and it is fully fitted with a voice modulator to create the trademark croaky Dalek voice. And it also has working lights and a moving eye, made from a magic eight ball.

Scottish schoolgirl lands dream role in TV's Doctor Who

A NINE-year-old Highland schoolgirl has beaten off competition from hundreds of other hopefuls to land a dream role in the Dr Who series.
Caitlin Blackwood, from Inverness, is following the time-travelling footsteps of her cousin Karen Gillan who is starring as the doctor's assistant in the new series and also comes from the Highland capital.

Caitlin, a pupil at the city's St Joseph's Roman Catholic Primary School, landed the role despite having no formal acting experience.

She has just returned from Cardiff, where the new series is being filmed, but her role is not being revealed by the BBC to avoid spoiling the plot for fans.

Christine Cameron, St Joseph's headteacher, said the whole school was delighted for their new star pupil.

She said: "We are so proud of the way she has taken to working on a major film set in her stride.

"Everyone involved in the production of Dr Who is impressed with Caitlin, her ability to listen to and follow direction, be flexible in her approach, and get on with new people.

"She has charmed them all."

Ms Cameron said Caitlin is a "quiet, modest child" who rarely talks about her achievements: "I think she will let her talent speak for itself."

Virtual unknown Karen, 21, was cast by the BBC in May to star alongside new Doctor Matt Smith.

From Inverness, she attended the Italia Conti stage school in London after finishing her GCSEs.

She has featured in ITV's Rebus and panned hospital drama Harley Street, as well as Channel 4 comedy The Kevin Bishop Show. via

Matt Smith In Appeal For Bone Marrow Donors


Doctor Who star Matt Smith has asked people to try and save the life of a teenage boy who urgently needs a bone marrow transplant.

Smith, soon to take over from current Time Lord David Tennant, is seeking a bone marrow match for 15-year-old Matt Herbert, who is suffering from leukaemia.

The 27-year-old actor grew up in the same road as Herbert, a keen rugby player and pupil at Northampton School for Boys.

Herbert was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia in December 2008. He underwent treatment but found out the illness had returned in September.

He has since been told by doctors that he will only survive if he manages to have the transplant.

Smith, who will become the 11th doctor in the popular BBC sci fi show, is backing the Matt's Match campaign. via

David Tennant Lands US TV Role

DAVID Tennant could be set to smash America after being cast in the lead role for a new US TV comedy drama.

And industry experts in the States are already tipping him to follow in Hugh Laurie's footsteps and become a major TV star in America.

Tennant, 37, will star as a top Chicago lawyer who begins to suffer from panic attacks - and begins coaching clients to represent themselves in court instead.

The show had been languishing in development hell for nearly two years before Tennant's surprise casting. via
