So I've been watching 1970's Doctor Who on the BBC iPlayer. The Tom Baker section lists stories available on the iPlayer as 1,2,3,4,5,9,10,12,13,14 (this is nothing to do with any other story numbering). Is there a trick to getting the missing numbers (6,7,8,11), or did they just err? And does anyone know if there is more classic Who likely to be added in the future?

Just received my Torchwood:Children of Earth DVD! I also have sitting here the first season set of Dr. Who (the first "modern" season...with bigger budget than the classic show). While I realize TCOE is considered fairly stand-alone, would it be best if I watch the Dr. Who stuff first
? And, for that matter, since I'm probably going to watch the other Torchwoods eventually, even though I know they're not supposed to be as good, should I go ahead and do that before
viewing TCOE? Or does everything work just as well if I approach it completely scattershot?

Help my son get his Tardis
on. I'm currently decorating my 7 year old sons bedroom, and he is a big Doctor Who fan. He has asked me for a giant (I guess 6 ft) tardis on one wall of his painted bedroom.
My initial thought was to paint - but I don't have the requisite skills really, so I was looking for a Fathead
equivalent. I'm not sure the custom option on WallBangers will allow me to use a copyright image.
Do you have any other recommendations for giant Tardis resources? Or maybe a suggestion to get a large scale picture onto a bedroom wall - I'm in the UK if it makes a difference.

In the 2005 episode of Doctor Who titled The Christmas Invasion there was a song near the end that starts "Well I woke up today". The song takes place as The Doctor's 10th personality is choosing his outfit from the stores in the Tardis. Can this song be had in it's entirety anywhere?

DoctorWhoFilter: in the UK we have a TV show called Doctor Who, in which this dude with a long scarf travels through time in what is essentially a small garden shed called a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space).
More extraordinary than it's time travelling ability though, the TARDIS is actually bigger on the inside
- you walk into small garden shed to find huge room the size of a small television studio. Hence, in the UK when you, for example, get into a car that looks kinda small but is actually incredibly roomy inside, one might say, "bloody hell, it's like a TARDIS in here."
So the question is, is there an American equivalent?
