Doctor Who’s Biggest Change

When Jodie Whittaker got the news some months ago that she had been cast as the protagonist of "Doctor Who," the long-running BBC series, she went through a range of overwhelmed reactions. She cried; she caught her breath; she excitedly squeezed the knee of a colleague sitting next to her.

RE: Sustainable, farmed sea scallops

Bangs Island Mussels' farm manager Jon Gorman heads out on Casco Bay, off of Portland, Maine, in a blue and white fishing boat named Le Cozze (Italian for mussels). He motors past one of the rafts where the company is growing mussels and on to a more unusual venture: Bangs Island's new sea scallop farm.

Leaning over the side of Le Cozze, they haul out a lantern net that serves as a scallop nursery, onto the deck. Gorman reaches into one of the lantern net and pulls out a handful of golden-brown scallop shells, about the size of old-fashioned silver dollars.

DIY: Chipwich ice cream sandwiches

You'd think that something as simple as a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich would be easy. Two chocolate chip cookies, plus a scoop of ice cream, done. What more could possibly be involved?

But if you've ever made such a thing at home, you'll know the reality doesn't quite live up to the Chipwiches, Big Wheels, and Tollhouse Sandwiches of childhood.

That's because old-school chocolate chip cookies are meant to be consumed at room temperature. Double them up around a scoop of ice cream and you'll need to unhinge your jaw and chip a tooth just to get a bite.
