Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a miniscope stuffed to the rafters with fan creativity, Whovian news and other bits and bobs from the past week on the internet and social media.

And we begin this week with a lovely little clip made to illustrate an alternate reality, in which Doctor Who was made in America in the 1970s, and the lead role was played by Gene Wilder, the man who played the title role in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

And while we’re cross-pollinating classic movies with Doctor Who, how about this, a clip in which Query The Theory explores the idea that Mary Poppins is, in fact, a Time Lord? It would certainly explain that larger-on-the-inside carpet bag she carries everywhere:

• And while we’re on vegetation, maybe this should’ve been the theme music for that particular story:

• Another Fourth Doctor teaser, this time for the dark gothic tale of “The Masque of Mandragora”:

• A regeneration can work wonders on a smile:

• The Doctor and the Time War, thrillingly recapped:

• The original indefinable magic, you might say:

• Someone’s been raiding the Seventh Doctor’s wardrobe:

• And to finish this week, how about a fascinating technical explanation of how the original Doctor Who credits sequence was created, spoken entirely in French?
