Did you see CBBC’s mini Doctor Who episode?
A Weeping Angel, an Olympic torch bearer and a bad hair day for the Doctor. Watch a tiny new bit of Doctor Who, written by primary school children
This year’s Script to Screen competition winner aired today during CBBC’s Blue Peter, in the form of 3-minute Doctor Who mini-episode starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.
Written by children aged 9-11 from Ashdene Primary School, the Olympics-themed Good as Gold was selected as the winning entry by Steven Moffat, executive producer Caroline Skinner, and BBC Learning’s Katy Jones.
Let’s take this in the spirit in which it was intended, i.e. some fun for primary school kids who love Doctor Who, the Olympics, and presumably, making their teachers happy.
RTD-dissenters, ready your “We preferred it to The End of Time” jibes now...
