Doctor Who, elsewhere

Doctor Who may be into its gap year but programme makers seem determined to keep the series in the public's mind.

Kudos to the Spooks writers for this scene from last week's episode in which Lucas North is shown using a sonic screwdriver to break into a car. Assuming that Malcolm developed this piece of kit does this mean he's a Time Lord sent to Earth to prevent the disastrous Spooks:Code 9 time line from occurring? Fingers crossed.

Then there's this shot from Survivors episode 2. A clever way to pay tribute to Terry Nation, creator of Survivors and Davros, but it carries terrible implications for Doctor Who fans.

The plague struck the week this issue of the Radio Times went on sale? But that's the week between the broadcast of The Stolen Earth and Journey's End. Truly, the survivors would envy the dead.
