Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who‘s Day roundup, a carefully-selected sift through all of the internet over the past seven days for Whovian nuggets, fan creations and general news and gossip.
And we begin this week with something rather grand. Lucy Crewe is a Doctor Who fan and animator, who has spent a good deal of 2016 working on a cartoon trailer for Season 10. And it’s really good, particularly the likenesses of both the Doctor and Bill:
And that’s not all, during the shooting for the actual Season 10, Lucy took some of the early animations to show Peter Capaldi, who seemed equally taken with her work:
Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:
• Matt Smith is back! After a period of relative quiet, he’s been promoting his new drama The Crown, and generally having fun, like this appearance on BBC Radio 1 where he and presenter Nick Grimshaw swap voices while ordering pizza:
• And here he is talking to Graham Norton about meeting royalty:

• His old mucker Karen Gillan is showing her support:
What a treat to get to see two of the most talented actors in the UK bouncing off one another.Matt Smith and Claire Foy.#thecrown Netflix!
