A surprising development this evening: episode one of theTARDISODES, the mini-episode tie-ins to the forthcoming second series of Doctor Who, has just gone live on the BBC's official Doctor Whowebsite. Originally announced as being intended solely for viewing on mobile phones, the intention is now to webcast each one on the official site. The available feature, streamed via RealMedia or Windows Media Player, is the first official new Doctor Who footage screened since December's "The Christmas Invasion".
Also now online is an update and revamp to Who Is Doctor Who, the official tie-in website ostensibly 'written' by Mickey Smith, Noel Clarke's character in the series. The site last year featured amusing anecdotes and 'conspiracy theories' related to the Doctor's trips to Earth.
Finally, a new BBC tie-in site has materialized today for the Leamington Spa Lifeboat Museum, another in the new series of tie-in sites created by the BBC team to complement the debut of the series.
