    Emma was recently voted Britain’s Greatest Female Role Model in a magazine poll earlier this year, easily beating actress Keira Knightley and model Kate Moss. She has also been chosen to be an ambassador for Chanel’s fashion range, often appearing on the red carpet and as a cover girl in its lavish outfits.

    When is “An adventure in time and space” being aired?
    Can anyone confirm that ITV showed their own Sc/fy serial; “Emerald Soup” on the same day that Doc.Who showed for the first time?
    Needless to say it didn’t last!!! What prog could go head to head with the renowned ‘Doctor’?

    It is just clips, no complete serials from the 60s are being colourised. He has however done the first episode of The Mind Of Evil which only excited in black and white.
