I’ve been streaming shows lately, and a Doctor Who reference popped up in an episode of The Librarians. One of the main characters, describing a house that can travel anywhere in the world, compared it to the TARDIS.
Jodie Whitaker, talking about pandemic precautions taken during filming of Doctor Who, said: “There’s real respect on set. Nobody’s in any way like, ‘Eurgh, this is annoying.’ Because it’s not annoying; it’s necessary and it’s fine. There’s nothing we can do except follow all the government guidelines and be as responsible as we can…none of this has taken the joy out of being back on set. It hasn’t taken away any of the fun or any of the banter. We’re still in good spirits.”
[We need more of that attitude in the world, the country, our state, the local grocery store…]

And finally, not exactly Doctor Who-related, but I know some of my fellow locals will remember fondly the Skycraft Surplus building in Winter Park. Inside were all the odd parts and bits of electronics you’d need to build your own creations, while the outside was decorated with rockets and a flying saucer. Plans have been made to replace the store with a medical office building. There is a tenuous Doctor Who fan connection—some of the bits on my TARDIS console came from Skycraft.
