The countdown continues to the launch of Series 31 of Doctor Who later today, 46 years, 4 months and 11 days since the series first graced British television screens in November 1963.

To mark the day The Daily Telegraph has compiled an A-Z of Doctor Who facts, from Aliens to Z-Neutrino Energy, full of useful information from the series long history.

Meanwhile Den of Geek has gone behind the scenes to give a list of what it regards as the best ten Doctor Who producers over the years.

The Sun concentrates on a preview of Karen Gillan and the way her life will change after the transmission of The Eleventh Hour. It has a slideshow of Doctor Who companions over the years. MTV quizzes Steven Moffat, while the Times talks films and fans with Matt Smith.

Digital Journal follows up its story on the fifth anniversary of the show’s return with a look forward to the opening episode – while bemoaning the fact that America will need to wait another fortnight – and also takes a look at the UK and Australian première of K9.

The Eleventh Hour can be seen on BBC One and BBC HD at 6.20pm tonight.
