To honor the fact that Patrick Troughton would have been 99 today, here is his second appearance on my Doctor Who tapestry, as the villain Salamander in the story Enemy of the World. This is one of four times the actor playing the Doctor appeared as another character in the same story, a special section of the tapestry will feature these appearances.

This week I've handed the blog over to my editor, Marc Major, to resurrect the theatre reviews for the blog site. This week we had the pleasure to see The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé by Riddlestick Theatre at The Pleasance Theatre.
Review by Marc Major
But you will leave this quaint theatre above and below a pub thoroughly entertained, part farce, part musical, part tragedy you decide.
Plenty of audience participation, and watch out for the cow with the oversized violin. Some clever writing and some comedy stars of the future in the making.
It is a shame it has such a short run in London, but definitely one to watch out for, 86 minutes of fun from start to finish!
You can still catch them in Southampton NST City 3rd-4th April, Exeter Phoenix 28th April
and at Brighton Fringe at The Warren: Theatre Box 4th-6th May.
