Details of David Tennant's new 4 part drama series, Single Father, have been released by the BBC Press Office. In the series, filmed in Glasgow, Tennant plays a photographer facing the seemingly impossible job of bringing up four kids alone after the sudden death of his wife, Rita. The Daily Record has been reporting on how Tennant prepared for the role.

A Doctor Who inspired stage adventure is being performed at the Charles Cryer Studio Theatre in Carshalton in South West London. Hell Blossom, by Ian Wheeler, is part of a trilogy of Doctor Who plays. It runs from 30th September - 2nd October.
The story begins when our time traveller and his companion, Shaatara, a Valkyrie warrior from the New Asgard colony, visit Professor Gardener, another time lord, now living in exile in Victorian London. The Professor is helping Chief Inspector Potts with his investigation into a series of grisly murders in the East End. A strange creature is responsible for the murders - and, when it kills, a mysterious man is seen near the scene of the crime, whose incredible get-aways have earned him the nick-name 'Spring-heeled Jack'.

The actress Margaret Hickey has died. Hickey played Mary Smith, an inhabitant of Salamander's underground community, in the Second Doctor story The Enemy Of The World.
