Excellent guide to Doctor Who.

However I noticed that there is a small spelling mistake in the paragraph following Season 8's episode list - scren should read screen.

Update suggestion - Mention of BBCi's Webcast of the 'Shada' story should be included as part of Season 17's information. Also the fact that different 'Shada' material was used in the Special Edition video of the 'Five Doctor' - The Doctor and Romana punting on Cambridge river (season 20). Finally a full entry for the BBCi Webcast of 'Shada' as part of Paul McGann's entry.

thanks for the suggestions! i didn't add about the Shada webcast before since it wasn't made, however, there is no point adding it to the Paul McGann section since anything apart from the Television series and the movie are not part of the official doctor who timeline, and to include the Shada webcast i would have to include all other webcasts, books, comics etc which is not realistic.

however, if you read the information under season 20 you will find that i have mentioned material from Shada was used. quote:

"Tom Baker also refused to return, thinking that it had not been long enough since he played the Doctor, so footage was shown from the previously-unseen 'Shada' with the story rewritten."

Hi Spook, hi Big Vern, is this something I can help out with? If you let me know specifically which sentence(s) to add or update, I can pass that on to the italics.

(The 'scren' mistake, I'll get on now.)
