Where are you now and what can you see?

You write the reviews: Doctor Who And The Cave Monsters, read by Caroline John<br/>Doctor Who And The Doomsday Weapon, read by Geoffrey Beevers

If your children are fans of the new series of Doctor Who, but you've failed to interest them in DVDs of the "classic series" then these BBC Audiobooks are for you. Without the overreliance on CGI effects of the modern-day adventures or the (now) laughable sticky-tape-and-egg-box special effects of the 1970s, these stories can be enjoyed for what they are – excellent science-fiction adventures. BBC Audio has chosen two works by Malcolm Hulke, one of the series' most thoughtful and humanistic contributors.

Gerard Gilbert: Who cares if the new Dr Who is as queer as a Cyberman? Welcome back

The Daleks were the most fantastic screen Nazis - remorselessly destructive and completely lacking in any sense of humour

The BBC's finest is about to be revived - and this time, he'll be African American (most probably). By Matthew Sweet

Boffins on the box

Dr Who: The dotty professor. The quintessential absent-minded scientist. Although Dr Who was, of course, primarily a Time Lord, he represented science and progress, especially in the white hot 1960s. The character's enduring charm is in his eccentricity, however

Choice: Film; Metroland

Film: The dead crow society

We shouldn't be surprised by Michael Winterbottom's bleak vision of `Jude'. This is the man who gave us `Butterfly Kiss' and `Cracker'. By Chris Peachment


For the past few years I've avoided Jigsaw womenswear shops, because whereas once you were capable of getting real "finds" there, recently it's been just row upon row of boring office girl suits. But this season it has really got its act together and the autumn/winter collection is fantastic. All the looks are there - big cardigans, geometric prints, knee-length skirts as well as snappy classics - great jumpers, tapered trousers and accessories (look out for their splendid version of a long Doctor Who scarf). The list of "must haves" is too long to mention here - there wasn't one thing I didn't like - but to give you an idea of cost, the sweater featured here is pounds 48 and the most expensive item in the collection is a kid leather parka, which retails at pounds 430. Jigsaw, well done.

Letter: Dr Who formula

Letter:Tuneless doctor

Sir: The new Dr Who (report, 29 May) has another weakness that will not have escaped the attention of the veteran fan and that is the awful mangling of the signature tune. The original Radiophonic tune was always the Doctor's tune; maybe that's why this episode was so unlike Dr Who.

Letter: Dr Who touched by Midas

Sir: I could not disagree more with Serena Mackesy's criticisms of Doctor Who (TV review, 28 May). As someone who saw every episode on the day of its original screening, even delaying departure on honeymoon so as not to miss one, I thoroughly enjoyed the latest incarnation.
