3,500 fans speak out about what they want to see in series 11 of Doctor Who in a recent Radio Times poll. Will we see a return of Captain Jack Harkness? Will the 13th incarnation of the Doctor have a male companion? These fans certainly hope so.

Radio Times asked fans if they thought the new Doctor should have a new sonic screwdriver designed for them and a TARDIS makeover.  The fans were overwhelmingly for both of these ideas with 79 percent in favour of a new look for the TARDIS and 68 percent for a new sonic.  It looks like the TARDIS redesign takes priority for these fans.  Each redesign is usually based on the personality of the Doctor who is piloting the TARDIS at that time.  The design really speaks volumes about the Doctor it is designed for.  Since we don't really know anything about number 13 yet, it's hard to say what her version of the TARDIS would look like.  Who knows, maybe we'll get a little more insight during the Christmas special.

Series 10 of Doctor Who had a lot of new monsters introduced which had fans divided between those who liked the new additions to the Whoniverse and those who did not. When Radio Times asked fans if they would prefer new monsters in series 11 or if they preferred the classics it was an almost even split between the two options with 51 percent wanting new villains and 48 percent hoping for classics like the Daleks and Cybermen.

What about bringing back characters from previous story lines? When Radio Times asked which former character the fans would want brought back 30 percent voted for the return of Captain Jack Harkness, played by actor John Barrowman. This is something fans have been asking for a lot since he left the show. The character was so popular he received a spin off show called Torchwood. It sounds like fans just can't get enough of the flirtatious Captain Jack. Another 11 percent of voters said they wanted to see a return of Susan Foreman and 10 percent claimed a preference for River Song.

As for the Doctor's future companions, 63 percent are hoping for a male companion.  There is also a 63 percent desire to see the Doctor have multiple companions joining her in the TARDIS for series 11. Series 10 had a TARDIS team of three with Nardole and Bill helping the Doctor out. The 11th Doctor also had a time with double companions travelling with Rory and Amy Pond.  This seems to be the preferred dynamic for slightly more than half of the fans polled.

Lastly 68 percent of fans said they are hoping for more travelling through time and space, with less time hanging around modern day Earth. Don't tell that to the third Doctor!  But I am sure that whatever the writers decide for series 11, fans everywhere will be happy to have more episodes of Doctor Who to watch. For now all we can do is wait and speculate.

William Russell, who played companion Ian Chesterton; Eric Roberts, who played the Master; Matthew Waterhouse, who played companion Adric; and Katy Manning, who played companion Jo Grant, are all appearing at this year's Time Eddy III convention in Wichita Kansas, USA.

Wichita's Time Eddy convention wanted to end its three year run with a bang and they certainly have not disappointed. Though Sylvester McCoy was intended as their original lead guest, his recent cancellation hasn't caused too hefty of a blow for the Kansas based Doctor Who convention. They still have several amazing Doctor Who actors booked, as well as composer Dominic Glynn and author Amy Shira Teital.

Actor William Russell, who turns 93 in November, had the pleasure of working along side of the legendary William Hartnell who played the beloved first incarnation of the Doctor. He has more recently played a minor role in An Adventure in Space and Time, the 2013 biological film based on the creation of the Doctor Who television series.

Russell is truly a rare treat for Doctor Who fans. This is especially the case for American fans, as the actor has only ever appeared at an American based convention once before. This may be these fan's only opportunity to nab the actor's autograph for their collections. Not to mention the amazing chance to hear stories told by one of the actors who has been with the show from the very beginning.

Fans from all over the United States and Canada are coming together for this year's gathering on Friday, Oct. 20th. Tickets are still available for purchase via the Time Eddy website here.

Hi guys!!! I'm part of the Marvel Big Bang this year and my entry is due in Nov 18th. I need someone that can help me with my sentence structure, wording, pacing and any other thing you might be willing to offer. English is not my first language so it would be extremely helpful to have a second or third pair of eyes looking over my work.

Here's the info on my story:

Title: Down the Valley of Elah
Summary: Scott has to rebuild his life on the ashes of his Phoenix possession, the death of the man that was his father in fact if not in blood and the shattering of most relationships he's ever had. Scott is acquitted of the crimes he committed under the influence of the Phoenix. AvX Consequences AU.

Here's an excerpt of the story. It's incredibly rough since I haven't had the change to edit and clean it up:

The apartment was all upper New York lush and plush. From the white: carpets, wrap around sectionals, to the minimalistic metal and glass that was supposed to be the height of fashion but felt cold and impersonal. So unlike the warm oak paneling of the mansion so many years ago. The afghans and throws and quilts thrown over the backs of well worn couches, foot of soft beds and the occasional chandeliers if any of them were feeling particularly creative. 

 

It wasn’t the alien place to Scott. He had spent the greater part of his youth with a billionaire’s son, a chunk of his adult’s life in real alien home-worlds and then with Emma Frost as his lover. But it didn’t fit like a second skin or third skin. Always out of place in the landscape of who Scott Summers was and where he belonged. 

 

It was a familiar feeling. Similar to the one he had after he regained his sight, when the mansion wasn’t just made out of a symphony of sounds and textures. The day he opened his eyes to red tints and dark shades, it was like Alice falling through the rabbit hole. This whole new world where nothing matched and everything was an askew vision of the images in his head. 

 

So no, here in the very pinnacle of luxury that New York city had to offer, Scott Summers didn’t feel out of place so much as a man coming into sunlight after years underground. Blotches of black dancing in his eyes and everything too bright and dark by turns. 

 

He stood at the threshold and couldn’t make himself take those first real steps into a new life. And that was it, wasn’t it? New life, new beginnings.

 

A new start. 

 

 

Again.

 

Somehow unfair, really. How easily everything seemed to come and go. How often he was forced to pick up the pieces and start over again. To rebuild: the school, the dream, a mutant safe-haven, broken relationships, life. And shouldn’t there be a rule about that? A kind of limit to the times you got to watch your entire life burn down, of having to start all over again? 

 

Four, maybe. 

 

That would be a good number. A decent number. Instead of this never ending cycle he seemed to be trapped in. That futility of purpose that never reached its mark and always, always ended in failure. Like Sisyphus, cursed to roll a boulder up a hill over and over again. Knowing that no matter how close he came to the summit, he would never, ever reach it. 

 

He stood there in arrested indecision, wondering, not for the first time, if he had it in him for another new start. Once more unto the breach. Somehow the thought left him feeling tired and older than his twenty seven years. 

 

A heavy weight settled on his shoulders as he peered into the room. There was a crowd there. To celebrate. As if any of what had happened was cause for anything but a funerary progression. Scott certainly felt like something inside was decaying. The rot spreading inwards and outwards towards anyone and everyone that he came into contact with. 

 

Why couldn’t you just have left it alone? He thought not for the first time at Matt Murdock, who stood to his left, like he had since day one. Matt, who was an Avenger on occasion and a vigilante always. Lawyer to the destitute and disenfranchised and thought that Scott was worthy of his time and effort. Scott wanted to hate him and some days he thought the man was every bit the demon he masquerade about.

The Good News Is...

Phil's home, and with both external ears. I am amazed at the lack of communication that can occur over the phone; I specifically heard the other doctor say the external ear had been removed, and I specifically asked about that - and was told yes, the ear was taken. Apparently "external ear" means different things to cat owners and vets. No matter: that's good. 

What's making this an awful, bad, no good day for everyone is the medication regimen. We're supposed to give him an antibiotic once every twelve hours, and two painkillers: gabapentin, again, once every 12 hours, and hydromorphone, once every 6-8 hours. 

Since we got him home yesterday afternoon, we've gotten one gabapentin dose in him, and one antibiotic dose, and, we think, one hydromorphone dose. He is horrible about opening his mouth, and literally twists himself upside down to avoid doing so. We're supposed to keep up this regimen every day for five days (the hydromorphone) and 10 days (the antibiotic). This may or may not happen. He's gotten so stressed; at one point, losing control of his bowels. Poor little guy. Jesus ....

Also? He has to wear the cone of shame for 10 days, except when we take it off him to let him eat, drink, and - ha - take his medicine. The poor guy is running into walls and everything else, we've had to take the top off the catbox because he can't get in with it on, and he definitely can't get up or down to places he normally wants to go. 

He slept on me for much of last night, after I lifted him to the bed. I didn't get much sleep, nor did BB. I called in sick today, although I'll try to get at least a couple of things done; if the hydromorphone we think we got into him 15 minutes ago takes hold and he sleeps again, I'm going to catch a few wink. 

It's like having a baby again. Except one with claws, some teeth, a lot of stress, and stitches. 

Gah.

Actress Pearl Mackie picked up an Ally Award at last night's PinkNews Awards in recognition of Doctor Who's 'groundbreaking' LGBT storylines.

Doctor Who has featured a variety of LGBT characters since its 2005 return, including omnisexual Torchwood lead Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) as well as married lesbian couple Madame Vastra and Jenny Flint.

The most recent series of Doctor Who saw the introduction of Mackie's Bill Potts, the show's first openly-gay regular companion. Bill's appearances in the show's tenth series were bookended by the exploration of her relationship with student turned alien pilot Heather (Stephanie Hyam).

Mackie told PinkNews:
“It’s lovely to be able to accept this Award on behalf of Doctor Who.

“Last year I never fathomed coming to any Awards ceremony, so I feel quite honoured to even have been invited, let alone for Doctor Who and the character of Bill. It’s testament to how well she was received and how well people responded to having an out lesbian on a mainstream TV show.

“It’s genuinely been amazingly positive, especially going around the world and meeting people. I met a couple of young girls who were BAME, and talked to me about how watching Bill on Doctor Who enabled them to come out and feel comfortable with their own sexuality. For me that’s a massive achievement.

“The thing that I liked most about Bill was that she wasn’t grappling with her sexuality, she didn’t need to come out, it wasn’t an issue! It was always just about, I’m gay and happy and this is who I am, this is who I like and this is who I’m in love with.”
Mackie collected the award along with Doctor Who executive producer Brian Minchin, who said of the accolade:
“I’m really proud for everyone involved in the show – all of the actors and all of the writers. And I’m proud of the BBC, because to put LGBT+ representation at the heart of the BBC1 schedule is no small thing!

“We’re saying it’s part of everyone’s lives and should be right at the heart of our dramas and Saturday night TV.”
Minchin also commented on the show's long-standing LGBT inclusiveness, saying:
“I think it’s naturally part of Doctor Who as a show now.

Doctor Who is really unique – the lead character is kind of asexual, and he’s always drawn people from all walks of life.

“So much of TV has a guy as the lead and he’s got a gun and is trying to shag all the women. Doctor Who’s never been like that. I think that counts for something."
Pearl Mackie is due to bow out of Doctor Who at Christmas as part of this year's festive special, Twice Upon A Time. The episode will also see the show bid farewell to Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and welcome successor Jodie Whittaker as the first female incarnation of the Time Lord.
