6th January 2006 - The Friday Night Project Trailer

0'20", 16:9

Billie Piper, Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins step out of the TARDIS to advertise the new series of the Friday Night Project.

6th January 2006 - The Friday Night Project


 
12'38", 16:9

The irritating Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins are joined by Billie Piper for a brief production of Doctor Who on Ice, which includes a Sontaran ("he looked like a giant shit!").

Later, Piper goes out into the streets of London and performs two con jobs: In one she asks members of the public to pretend to be her agent, and in another she gets them to dress up as rubbish Doctor Who monsters. A little later, during a quiz on Piper's life, a clip of Rose is shown (with Autons bizarrely and poorly edited out) and the other presenters invited to guess what happened next.

Finally, a game of Other People's Prizes begins with an audience member presenting a hobby horse "signed by Sylvester McCoy and Peter Davidson [sic]". During the game, Piper correctly identifies a Dalek from Abducted by Daleks. After all this, stars come out of the TARDIS to assistance in a game in which she has to identify their years of origin.

Five clips.

9th January 2006 - Richard & Judy

8'19", 16:9

Judy presents clips from Bad Wolf to introduce John Barrowman. He makes the mistake of suggesting the Captain Jack would sleep with either presenter, prompting Richard to try and find out who he'd sleep with first. They congratulate him on Doctor Who (he credits Russell Davies and Steven Moffat), he talks about his screen test, Torchwood (he was initially worried that he'd be out of Doctor Who), lack of time travelling in the spinoff, the post-watershed status, his new jobs on The Sound of Musicals (a clip is shown) and on Dancing on Ice, along with his part in The Producers and finally on how he stays looking young.

11th January 2006 - Blue Peter

11'24", 16:9

Blue Peter travels to Murray Gold's underground lair (well, except it's not underground). The luscious Konnie Huq interviews Gold about how he first got interested in music, his first composition, adapting an existing theme tune being harder than writing his own ("the Doctor Who theme is the best theme tune ever made"), how Delia Derbyshire created the original theme, writing the incidental music (a clip of The Christmas Invasion with Song for Ten is shown), how incidental music can change the atmosphere of a scene and finally how to create sounds using household objects. Back in the studio, the team announce that Murray Gold is rearranging the Blue Peter theme tune, and launch a competition for a viewer to join him.

14th January 2006 - The Sound of Musicals

1'19", 16:9

To begin his regular slot on the TV series The Sound of Musicals, John Barrowman gives us a brief biography, and Russell T Davies talks of his excitement surrounding his casting. A clip of the opening titles is used.

14th January 2006 - Dancing on Ice

0'23", 16:9

To begin his regular slot on the gameshow Dancing on Ice, John Barrowman is introduced by two clips from The Empty Child. Later, host Philip Schofield makes a joke about John being "exterminated", and Barrowman tries to appeal to the Whovian audience to vote for him.

21st January 2006 - Dancing on Ice

0'22", 16:9

Commentator Tony Gubba refers to "Doctor Who's Captain Jack skating into a new dimension - even the Timelord would have been impressed".

29th January 2006 - The South Bank Show Awards

3'14", 16:9

Melvyn Bragg announces the 10 nominees for The Times Breakthrough Award for artists in 2006, including Billie Piper, as voted for by viewers of The South Bank Show before handing over to Daniel Radcliffe.

Radcliffe talks through Piper's history, and presents her with the award. Billie provides a teary thanks to the Doctor Who cast and crew (especially the producers) and those who voted, before a clip is shown of her at work in Much Ado About Nothing.
 

31st January 2006 - Richard & Judy

4'28", 16:9

Tom Baker appears to talk about his recent hiring as the voice of BT, but to his dismay is introduced by Judy with cropped clips from Genesis of the Daleks. They talk briefly about what a wonderful job it was, and the reaction of fans since. Richard refers to one of his female colleagues saying that Tom makes her feel "all warm". He has no idea what he's just said, but Tom gets it... Judy brings the subject round to his scarf (look, he's wearing a scarf in real life!) and Tom talks about Elisabeth Sladen being beautiful (he still has naughty dreams about her, apparently).

He then manages to turn the discussion round to Little Britain and BT for the remainder of the 12 minute segment.

1st February 2006 - Today with Des and Mel

1'41", 16:9

After Des O'Connor repeatedly introduces Tom Baker with Doctor Who references, Baker quite successfully spends the remainder of a 15-minute interview entirely avoiding the subject, talking instead about his recent job at the voice of BT text messages.

He briefly brings the subject up again as he talks about how he got the job on Little Britain as the writers were fans of his work on the show.

Two clips from one show.

4th February 2006 - Dancing on Ice

Penelope Wilton appears on Breakfast to talk about her recent career, which naturally includes her role as Harriet Jones. She talks about acting as a dislikeable character in her latest play, we see a clip from the film Iris which she then talks about her memories of, older women getting better roles in theatre, getting undressed in Calendar Girls, and finally her role in Doctor Who. We see a clip from The Christmas Invasion, prompting her to cover Bob and Rose and Russell T Davies' talent, her political aspirations (or lack of) and then back to her present career and what she has coming up...

9'04", 16:9

Bonnie Langford proves she's actually still alive by appearing on Breakfast TV. Although we're not sure that counts as proof as such.

We see a pillarboxed clip of Trial of a Timelord and she covers her love of global fans. Turnbull implies that she hasn't aged since then. He fails to get in her pants.

Later in the show, we see the same clip from New Earth, and later Underwood shows off the same interview clips and talks about Cassandra kissing the Doctor.

Throughout 2006, the UK's Adult Channel, a leading provider of soft pornography entertainment, teamed up with Allure Adult Entertainment to produce a series of short scifi/sex adventures based on Doctor Who and written by Paul Carder & Craig Kennedy. Throughout the show, Doctor Screw, who has a penchant for using the word "fantastic" at inappropriately orgasmic moments, takes his companion Holly through time to have threesomes with historical figures.

In this opening episode, Doctor Screw and The Mistress are battling each other in space, and crash down to Earth. He takes over the body of rock star B Nasty, who meets reporter Holly Heath. They go back to her place, he modifies her vibrator into a sonic dildo, and they have sex. Meanwhile, The Mistress takes over the body of a scary looking lady in a car park, who gets herself a couple of henchmen.
