Harry Potter's Mark Williams To Guest On 'Doctor Who'

It's going to be a heavily hyped season of "Doctor Who" this year, and it won't just be because two popular companions will be departing in a "heartbreaking" way. Filming began this week for the seventh season of "Doctor Who," and BBC News is sharing some of the guest list that has been invited to the party.

It's likely to be heavy on the hits, but a little too heavy on the audience participation, if complaints from disgruntled punters at Wonder's recent shows are anything to go by. And be warned: Jamiroquai seems to have been enticed out of retirement to provide support. Hyde Park, London W2, 26 June. Box office: 020-7009 3484.

T in the Park

This beloved Scottish festival is prized as much for its atmosphere as its lineup. And they're certainly wheeling out the big hitters this year: Eminem, Muse, Kasabian, Jay-z, Black Eyed Peas, Florence and the Machine, La Roux, Dizzee Rascal and Paolo Nutini,
