You thought you got rid of us didn’t you? No! We’re back for our double figures-sode Episode 10. After a one week hiatus to finish off our TFA Teaches You Who video project, we’re back in our crazy full effect for you, our beloved listeners.
First, in celebration of reaching a milestone that many startup podcasts never reach, we’re going to give you a quick peek behind the curtain and give you some stuff that you’d never hear in the final edited broadcast of the show. We’re also going to give you our thoughts on how it’s gone so far and where we see the show going in the future.
We’re going to give you the scoop on a steamy affair from two of the most well known actors from the legendary sci-fi show X-Files.
Mike Faber has beamed down from the mothership to give us the lowdown on the largest fan run Sci-Fi Con in America – Dragon*Con. Continue reading →

Canton Everett Delaware III aka actor Mark Sheppard makes a few comments about his part in the Series 6 episodes The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon in an interview with New Zealand entertainment website Stuff.
The actor reflects on getting his father involved in the show to play and older version of him, being sandwiched between Michael Gambon and Michael Sheen and what it means to play a villain.
Sheppard dazzled Doctor Who viewers earlier this year when he appeared alongside the TARDIS crew to help President Nixon and to defeat the Silence. Continue reading →
There’s a new Doctor Who miniseries coming our way in November. And by mini, I mean mini.
Written by Steven Moffat especially for the full-series DVD and Blu-ray box sets of this year’s episodes, the five epsisodes of Night and the Doctor aren’t likely to run more than fifteen minutes between them (in fact, we may be lucky if they last ten).
But if the disc-exclusive minisodes in last year’s release are anything to go by, these will be a whole lot of fun.
And whereas last year’s minisodes were just sketches that could have been sandwiched between full episodes, it looks like the five-part Night and the Doctor will have a complete, coherent story of its own – why else be split into five parts?
And it will certainly have it’s own episode of Doctor Who Confidential, A Night’s Tale. Continue reading →

The all new season of sci-fi hit Doctor Who, which premiered on Saturday, April 23, has given BBC AMERICA its highest-rated, most-watched telecast ever in Live + Same Day. Doctor Who delivered almost 1.3 million viewers*, a .72 coverage rating in P2+, and a .92 in A25-54. In total audience, the channel was up 71,000 viewers, from its previous best for last season’s opening episode of Doctor Who in April last year.
The news from the other side of the pond wasn’t as positive, however. According to the BBC, the first episode in the U.K. was “watched by an average audience of 6.5 million viewers,” which sounds pretty good until you realize that this “was down from the eight million recorded by overnight figures on Matt Smith’s show debut in April 2010.”

ESO WILL NOT SPOIL ANYTHING FROM THE FIRST EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO UNTIL WE HAVE SEEN IT OURSELVES AND DO OUR REVIEW OF THE EPISODE ON ESO#57
But until then…
Among all of the spoiler-free reviews available right now, io9′s was particularly embracing and fresh, having just been written after the stateside premiere. These are some pieces from the review, which is conveniently broken apart.
Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol screened at the BFI Southbank in London last night, and some very lucky people not only got the chance to see the eagerly awaited special before the rest of us, they ALSO caught a brief trailer for the upcoming sixth season of Doctor Who. And we know what they saw.
Multiple sources are claiming some possible very big news for the upcoming series of Doctor Who, but we don’t want to spoil any of the news here, so take a peek at it here. WARNING MAJOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS, OK WE HAVE WARNED YOU !!!
