Peoples of the universe please attend: The above video is to flag up that next month, we’ll be launching our podcast series celebrating the five faces… erm, five decades of Doctor Who. It’ll be called TV Cream Countdown: The 50 Greatest Doctor Who Moments.

If your Sagacity will pardon us, we would like to submit for her consideration some unseen evidence from a future episodic interface in the life of… Colin Baker!See post
Ahem. We’ll explain the above video in a moment. But first, this…
Tonight (i.e. Monday) is the final of Only Connect on BBC4. It’s TV’s best quiz (Pointless, obviously, a close second). But don’t worry, the show that was nearly called Link’em Park isn’t about to disappear from your screens – like Dr Who. No, next Monday BBC4 are bringing us Wall Night, an evening devoted to the Connecting Walls round. Most excitingly, we’re told it’ll feature scenes of Question Editor and host of this very website, David J* Bodycombe, in his actual office, setting actual questions! A chance to see how David lives his life? What’s not to like? We hear he’s had his staircase remodelled as a Rubik’s Snake.
And then – oh! And then! Some time in early 2012, we’ll get the Only Connect: Champion of Champions episode, pitting [captain of the 2008 champion team] David Stainer against his wife Katie Bramall-Stainer [who helmed the winning 2010 team]. Hence the above excitable video, courtesy of TV Cream’s Whimsical Films Unit. We hope that all makes sense.
* The ‘J’ stands for ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’, BTW.See post

Because you demanded it – or certainly didn’t stipulate we shouldn’t – here’s the obligatory TV Cream Dr Who mash-up video to celebrate the series’ mid-series finale on Saturday.
We kind of lost faith by the time we got to the Viglen interlude, to be honest, but it does pick up again a little bit from there…See post
The 10 (kind of) golden rules every gameshow should observe, whether it’s an Olympiad for the mind, or a spot of riddle-me-ree for heterosexual couples…
Just in case you thought The Silence, from last Saturday’s episode, were as scary as it gets.See post
Following on from last week’s shock melange ‘twixt The Apprentice and some incidental music from Dr Who story ‘Daleks in Manhattan’, TV Cream’s Whimsical Short Films Unit has been toiling hard on the predictable flight of fancy that is: Hey! What would have happened if the production team had used some music from old Dr Who on the show?!
Well, the results are as follows…See post
