Tom Baker on BBC1
Doctor Who star Tom Baker will be taking over as BBC1’s continuity announcer on Thursday 17th November to celebrate the return of the comedy series Little Britain, of which he is the narrator. Baker will introduce BBC1 programming with bizarre announcements penned by Little Britain creators Matt Lucas and David Walliams; it’s the first time the BBC has used a celebrity as a continuity announcer.
More Doctor Who! Following on from its broadcast of four Big Finish audios starring Paul McGann, digital radio station BBC7 will continue the adventures of the Eighth Doctor with two more audio plays. Douglas Adams’s Shada will be broadcast on 10th December at 9am (repeated 8pm), and Robert Shearman’s festive adventure The Chimes of Midnight will follow on 17th December.
DC Comics’ Aquaman is coming to TV, in a pilot produced by the creative team behind The WB’s Smallville. Oddly, despite the fact that the character recently appeared on Smallville, this won’t be a spin-off from that series; a new actor will take over the role of Adam Curry/Aquaman. The series will be set in the Florida Keys, near the Bermuda Triangle, and will use a ’grounded version of the Aquaman mythology’, according to producer Miles Millar. Like Smallville’s Clark Kent, the character won’t be referred to as ‘Aquaman’, and the stories will be based round Adam Curry’s attempts to protect the environment.
