Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a cosmic slop of fan creativity, news and other Whovian spices gathered fresh at dawn from a week marinading on the internet.

And we begin this week with a particularly good fanmade trailer for a Doctor Who story that doesn’t exist.

If you’ve ever wondered what it might look like to see the Seventh Doctor and his companion Ace face off against the Weeping Angels, and for that particular encounter to have been filmed and released on VHS video during the 1980s, the fantastic ADmiralPRESENTS has created the perfect clip for you. And even if you haven’t, it’s still a wonderful tribute to a bygone era in entertainment technology:

And it’s not the only Doctor Who trailer that has been created to recapture the visual effects of that era. Back in March, smallerpictures made this Tenth Doctor trailer, complete with new graphics:

Or to bring things bang up to date, Gallifreyforever97 has made this trailer for Season 9 in the style of Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:

• Soon to be followed by the Fourth:

• This is glorious, a 1976 interview with Elisabeth Sladen (who played Sarah Jane Smith) in front of a moving Dalek, just as she announced her departure from the TARDIS:

• The Sixth Doctor’s trial on Gallifrey begins:

• The Third Doctor meets Missy:

• Vortex is out:

• A Dalektable birthday wish:

• Anime Eleven:

• A chilling collection of the Doctor’s bleakest moments, those times when the affable mask drops, revealing the tortured steel beneath:

• And to finish this week on a more hopeful note, how about Murray Gold‘s stirring “I Am the Doctor” played on two accordions? Oh yes:
