Today's "The Mirror" has an article about Billie Piper, her quest to lose weight and her dropping a dress size. "I was brought up on bread and butter," Billie tells the Mirror. "Every meal, I'd have two rounds. So suddenly not having it as part of my diet is a bit like losing a friend... I find myself hanging around bakeries inhaling the smell of the pastries. It's quite sad. ... Getting rid of bread does make a difference. Bread makes me feel like such a heifer!" You can read the full article and decide for yourself (it does mention the new Doctor Who series.) (Thanks to Paul Hayes, Steve Tribe)

An article at Brand Republic discusses new technologies for broadcasting including the use of pay-per-view through British Telecom broadband service in the UK. "Viewers can expect to download a selection of programmes from an archive by typing in a keyword like 'Dr Who', giving the viewer complete control of their own schedule," says the article, although it doesn't mention whether or not this is the classic series or the new one.
