He had played Davros in three TV serials in the 1980s as well as several Big Finish audio dramas but Terry Molloy has told SciFiNow Magazine that he wasn’t approached to reprise Davros for 2008’s The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End and that he only found out by accident that Julian Bleach was his replacement as Davros.
It will be interesting to know what The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End director Graeme Harper thought about Molloy not being asked to return as Davros since Harper had directed Molloy in 1985’s Revelation of the Daleks.

Norman Taylor has passed away.

Norman Taylor was one of the men responsible behind the original iconic Doctor Who title sequence as a result of his capacity as a BBC Technical Operations Manager on Crew 9 based at Lime Grove in London.

As a result of experimentation Taylor made the discovery of the "visual howlaround" the effect that was subsequently used for the original Doctor Who title sequence.

Frozen Time:
Frozen Time is an audio story that was released in August 2007 by Big Finish Productions.
Written by Nick Briggs and featuring the Seventh Doctor. It takes place when the Seventh Doctor is travelling alone without any companions.
Playing the companion like character Genevieve is one time Bond girl Maryam díAbo (The Living Daylights) and she is a welcome delight in this story. I am glad that she finally did a Who with this story. As Genevieve, Maryam does very well with what she has been given and there was a little bit of a hint that Genevieve may have taken a little more than a Short Trip in the TARDIS. Who knows what kind of adventures Genevieve had with the Doctor.
The villains in this story were that of Ice Warrior prisoners led by Arakssor (played by the writer Nick Briggs) and the story did well in throwing the listeners off the scent by indicating that it may have been some other well known monsters the Doctor has encountered before.
Despite my compliments of Maryamís performance , I thought Frozen Time was only adequate in its presentation and that it could have been better.

Remembrance of the Daleks:
In part 2 and taking place in 1963, Group Captain Gilmore mentioned about the current state of the (British) government. The episode did not go into specifics about what Gilmore was referring to was it left up to the DVD info text to explain. The DVD info text said that in 1963 that War Minister John Profumo had resigned due to the scandal involving call girl Christine Keeler. The info text however got Profumo’s ministerial title wrong as the correct ministerial title was War Secretary not War Minister

In an episode of the Disney children series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody called The Suite Life of Excess originally aired in 2007 it featured a TARDIS like machine as it was in the shape of a British telephone box. Known as the Parallel Universaliser, it has the ability to travel to parallel universes hence its name.
Quite a fun episode and it can be viewed on YouTube starting here:
