Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a Gallifreyan gallimaufry of fan creativity, news and excitement from the past week in Doctor Who.
And we begin this week with a reunion of former flatmates. Former Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith has been doing a few interviews this week, and met up with his old friend James Corden, who leapt on the chance to confront him with some Whovian tattoos:
He also appeared with Larry Smith, telling him that Whovians are in for a treat with Jodie Whittaker:
And played a revealing round of If Only You Knew:
Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:
The new team of writers and directors for Season 11 have been revealed. So here’s who’s who in the new Doctor Who:

• And a very happy Angus Duncan…
For the three of you wondering why I wasn't at Edinburgh this year, it's (mainly) because I had a writing job on that I didn't want to jinx until I'd finished. Now though, I can say in a rich clear voice:
I'VE JUST WRITTEN A DOCTOR WHO MATE!!!!!

• An alternate reality version of The Many Lives of Doctor Who:
Just remembered this, made back in February; an unfinished alternative pitch for my cover to ‘The Many Lives of Doctor Who’.
We didn’t know if we’d be able to use the new costume on the cover for when this issue was out, so I was toying with the only other option! pic.twitter.com/mSaHqkpRM6

• And look, his companion Tegan Jovanka has some news for you:
• Speaking of whom, here’s Matthew Waterhouse (who played his companion Adric) on Season 11:
Apparently there is another batch of 'New Who' on the way. I'm told there will be a TARDIS crew of four for the first time since the 5th Doctor. This is a good sign: four is the best number because all the characters add colour to each other.

• And as we know, Thirteen is all about color:
Indulged in a bit of fan art while the kids are away. Liquid acrylic because I'm loving the vivid colour in the new series art.#DoctorWho #fanart #jodiewhittaker #thirteenthdoctor #liquidacrylic #artistsontwitter [https://t.co/DxhihdvnV4] pic.twitter.com/g41IK9fpvS
