Article roundup 24th-31st January 2011

Catching up with the end of January, award-wise Doctor Who (and Sherlock) missed out at the NTA awards to Waterloo Road (of all things). Merchandise saw incoming products for Character Constructors (not Lego!) and Dalek Rides for children. But of course the media seemed most interested in the return of Billie Piper in Secret Diary of a Call Girl!
