Although the Doctor appears to have a remarkable intellect, the Doctor does show a number of very human failings which might actually remind you of a certain sub-species of human. The Doctor can be grumpy, sulky, indecisive, engage in risky behaviours which place both him and his companions in danger as well as having quite an extreme sense of fashion.
The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular was a visual and auditory wonder. Live monsters from the show roamed the stage and the aisles as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC National Choir of Wales delighted fans with music from this cult TV programme.
We are currently in the midst of the barren lands where a series has finished some months ago and the next instalments will not be coming in to view on the horizon until the Autumn. So how does a Whovian get their fix until then? The answer has arrived in the shape of an award-winning musical...
These days I've become increasingly bored of television formats and much prefer the company of my laptop, the neighbours cat (who wanders through my conservatory in a daily escape bid from captivity) and a mug of beef tea.
For most of this latest series, I was bored, and I know I'm not alone. The acting and directing have been excellent, the writing so far as dialogue and pacing has also been quite good, but the show has felt like it's becoming a bit old hat.
Your Home In Their Hands has the strutting, pouting, preening Celia Sawyer as its host. Hostess might be more to the point as on first appearance, she looks as if she might show you to your table in a Las Vegas strip club.
Up North the Scottish independence referendum is hitting the final straight, with postal voters already casting their decisions. What should in all likelihood have been a 16 percentage point win for the No side looks a lot less certain now.
Doctor Puppet is a series of stop motion animated shorts featuring characters and concepts from the sci-fi series ... "We are working on episode 6 and it will premiere at the end of August. We're actually doing something really different and exciting".
Like all sane people, I try to draw all my life lessons from Doctor Who. In an episode last year, the Eighth Doctor (that'll be Paul McGann) is told ...
I was pretty pleased to finish my shed, manage the house and even work the washing machine efficiently while Mum had a brief stay in hospital. It may seem a bit soulless, but at least she had a clean, tidy, neat and ordered home to return to when the time came. Aspergers has its advantages.
Last week we heard that BBC Director General Tony Hall was expected to axe either BBC3 or BBC4. And now we discover that it's BBC3 that's got the chop.
The musical version of American Psycho is fantastic. Starring Matthew Smith, the show is on until February 1 at London's Almeida Theatre. If you've got tickets, or if you're hoping to somehow find some, here are a few fun facts that might make your viewing more enjoyable.
While the exact viewing figures have yet to be released, Saturday night's one-off special Doctor Who episode was beamed to ninety-four countries aroun...
With Doctor Who celebrating its 50th birthday, I decided the only way to watch the celebratory Day of the Doctor was to take myself off to the cinema to watch it in 3D with three similarly-obsessed female chums (thank you Charli for booking the tickets). And wow, it was good. Amazing in fact.
Is there anyone else out there? Or am I the only living being in the entire galaxy who's been left totally unmoved by the current outbreak of Doctor Who-steria? Don't get me wrong: I have nothing against the good Time Lord... It's just that I don't get it (him).
