In vaguely Who-related news, see a clip from, or download all of, the David TennantCatherine Tate production of Much Ado About Nothing.

Recent viewers of Doctor Who will recognise this scene (which can be clicked for enhanced magnitude) where Matt Smiths 11th Doctor holds Karen Gillans Amy Pond aloft in space by one foot:
But what I didnt realise, until I came across the image below, was that the aforementioned scene was an hommage to a publicity photo from 1986, announcing Bonnie Langfords casting as companion to Colin Bakers 6th Doctor. (Langford is dressed as Peter Pan because thats the role she was just coming off from which is presumably what inspired the image to begin with.)
Its a somewhat odd choice for an hommage, given that Steven Moffat is famously not exactly a fan of that particular era of the show.
In other Who news, here are three preview clips from the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special which will be the last Who well see until next fall.
