There has been a lot of debate as to wether or not the Doctor Who audio dramas from our friends at BigFinish.Com are officially part of the Doctor Who TV Show continuity (or "canon")
Nicholas Briggs put the discussion to rest today on Twitter when he stated:
So that's that. As many have deduced from Paul McGann mentioning previous Big Finish companions in today's Mini Episode, the Big Finish audios ARE officially part of the Doctor Who universe. Rest easy Whovians.
With today's release of the 6 minute mini-sode we see that the "One of the Doctors who will be appearing in the 50th" is in fact Paul McGann. This gives Whovians around the world hope that the episode will indeed be an "All Of The Doctors" special. Watch the episode below...
Fans of the Big Finish audios will also rejoice as there is a moment in the mini episode that all but confirms that Paul McGann's entire run on Big Finish is CANON and now part of official Doctor Who history.
Norwegian musical comedy duo Ylvis may be very silly, but that's not likely to hold back their next venture, an illustrated children's book based on their massive YouTube hit song, The Fox, which is to be published in the US in time for Christmas.
Xenocide is book 3 in the Enderverse series by Orson Scott Card.
It continues the story of Ender, started in Ender’s Game and continued in book two, The Speaker Of The Dead.
The war for survival of the planet Lusitania will be fought in the hearts of a child named Gloriously Bright.
On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequininos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought.
Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus that kills all humans it infects, but which the pequininos require in order to become adults. The Startways Congress so fears the effects of the descolada, should it escape from Lusitania, that they have ordered eh destruction of the entire planet, and all who live there. The Fleet is on its way, a second xenocide seems inevitable.Read More

Truly one of the funniest sites I’ve been on in a while. The basic premise is that John Lindsay runs a website called Don’t Even Reply, he searches the internet for classified ads on sites like Craigslist and then replies to them. He then keeps a record of the back and forth emails. Each exchange is unique and funny. This one is a fantastic Bathroom Bible that will have you laughing in no time.
