The Doctor Who Puppet Stars In A Very Rankin/Bass Christmas Special [VIDEO]

Alisa Stern, creator of the Doctor puppet resembling Matt Smith from Doctor Who, swears she started work on this video before the BBC announced “The Snowmen” Christmas Special (which, if you live in the U.S. you’ll be watching soon!).

Researchers Track Down Fifty Former “Miss Subways” for Museum Exhibit; Uncover Many Cute Old Ladies

The Miss Subways program ran from 1941 to 1976, seeking out women passengers on the city of New York’s 209 mile subway system in order to feature their picture and a small blurb about their lives on every subway car for a month.
