From the Jane Goodall Institute:

These little mammals, which look like an anteater/dog crossbred with a dragon, are the only mammals with scales rather than hair.  They give birth to a single offspring called a “pup” (cute level 1 million), they climb trees, they dig burrows, and they live in ecosystems alongside many of our favorite primates (chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans). They are the most illegally trafficked animal in the world, and though people believe they are good luck, they are the ones who need it most.

The first episode of Bright Summer Night has landed! We hope you enjoy it :)

The Candle Wasters new series is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Episode one follow mischievous Puck as they navigate their way to and through a midsummer night’s party. 

Um… it’s quite difficult to choose a highlight. But maybe it’s “From the Doctor to my son Thomas”: the short YouTube video that Peter Capaldi made for a little boy called Thomas Goodall who’d just lost his grandmother.
Quite apart from the fact that it illustrates the tremendous kindness of Peter Capaldi (although I know that all of the other Doctors have done similar things), it reminds me that Doctor Who exists not only to be entertaining, but to help children understand the world and its difficulties, and by extension, to remind us all to be a bit kinder, more imaginative and more human.
