One of JNT's ideas was to reveal that the Doctor was actually a God, but this was scrapped. I heard it on a DVD extra this week.

The woman who was in charge of the Shadow Proclamation in Stolen Earth, though un-named in the episode is actually called the Shadow Architect.

That's a good list - I hadn't realised it was quite so many.  I'll take your comment that the list's incomplete as a challenge, of course  Cool

For some reason I couldn't get onto the site yesterday, but I was going to point out that it was the 51st anniversary of Doctor Who. Not as important as last year, of course, but still worth marking.

Neil Gaiman has just posted a couple of pages of what he calls the "zeroth" draft of perhaps the most iconic scene from The Doctor's Wife (the "I took you where you needed to go" scene). No particular insights that I can see, but it's nice to have there.

Steven Moffat was originally opposed to Matt Smith's trademark bowtie. Apparently, to Moffat, "Bowties are not cool"
