Producer Bill Baggs contacted Outpost Gallifrey to let us know that the planned Doctor Who special he was involved with -- rumored to include actor Alan Cumming, as we reported here back in March -- will not be going ahead. "I work for a department called English Regions," Bill told OG, "and after much consideration, the Head [of programming] has decided that a Dr Who TV drama is not something we should be doing." However, Baggs will be involved in making three films for BBC South Today. "Southern Ways is an arts and entertainment strand and we'll be focussing on locations that were used for Dr Who that are in the South (the programmes patch)." And that's where readers come in. "I need your help. Anyone with specific memories of filming in the South of England (Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset, Oxfordshire and Berkshire) and who are still based here, please contact me, as we're looking for contributors. Transmission is due for mid July and filming starts soon." If you can help, contact Outpost Gallifrey and we'll forward your information on. (Thanks to Bill Baggs)
