Random Doctor Who Pic  

Sarah Jane maintains the Dr Who tradition of companions making dubious fashion choices.

I was first amused and then subsequently puzzled by the copyright notice under the picture. This is, after all, a publicity still created with the intention that it would be copied and published by other people.

At any rate, I'm assuming that at this point in the game I'm a) too small a fry a b) people distributing publicity images on the Internet is too common a thing for the BBC to come after me, but I suppose we shall see.

The BBC are a menace when it comes to publicity pix. I wanted to use a spread from SFX magazine in a book. SFX were very happy for it to be used, but pointed out one of the pix was a BBC one and I'd need permission from them. The BBC refused point-blank, despite it being a legit academic publisher. A colleague had similar problems, and ended up having to change the book's related website every six months to comply with strict conditions.

It's very odd because you'd think the publicity value was worth far more than any potential licensing revenue.

The perfect outfit to wear for rolling down a gentle slope...

That scene is so laughably rubbish. They could at least tried mounting the camera at an angle to make it look a bit steeper. In the book it magically transforms into a cliff which makes a lot more sense.
