I've got a longer post in me about Doctor Who this weekend and about science fiction in general thanks to some whining I did over on my LiveJournal and some helpful insights that I got in return, but while that ferments, here's some Who gossip for ya.
The Sun is reporting that there's a Doctor Who spin-off for children in the works featuring former Who Companions Sarah Jane Smith (Elizabeth Sladen) and K-9. The characters are from the legendary and beloved Tom Baker (the guy with the scarf) era of the show and are rumored to appear in an upcoming episode of the new series.
I'm pretty sure that this rumor has been around for a very long time, and the BBC isn't confirming anything about it. But no one's outright denying it either, so who knows? Something to watch.
