Den of Geek has Doctor Who: a celebration of continuity errors. Do Doctor Who continuity errors send you up the wall? Or is debating where they fit in with canon all part of the fun? When I was a child, I spake as a child. I thought like a child. I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put away childish things....

Blogtor Who has Review: An Evening with Waris Hussein. Last night in New York City saw a very special Doctor Who event take place featuring the screening of the very first episode, An Unearthly Child, along with a commentary and a Q&A with its director, Waris Hussein. Blogtor Who's NY correspondent Linille Abella was there to take it all in...

When it lifts, Sir Malcolm and his boat have mysteriously vanished"...

Miscellanious News

  • Canon Alberic's Scrap Book - Did Doctor Who end in 1976?
    In About Time: Volume 2, Tat Wood and Lawrence Miles ask the question “Did Doctor Who end in 1969?” The premise of their argument is that in 1969 the programme was altered so fundamentally by a wide range of factors (including the arrival of colour, the change to the UNIT format, and the end of the space race) that no episode produced after The War Games is entirely like those before it....
  • Radio Times - Torchwood's Eve Myles: I'd like to be in Sherlock - it is really hot
    The actress who jumps at feisty roles says playing Torchwood's Gwen Cooper is a joy...
  • SFX - Press Release Or Spoiler?
    On Tuesday 20 of March I had no idea when or how Rory and Amy were leaving Doctor Who. I’d heard rumours of them departing at some point and I really didn’t want to know more than that. On Tuesday 20 of March I had no idea that a new companion was on the cards or in fact was even about to be named. The following day I awoke to find Twitter and Facebook and this very site full of updates and comments about Rory and Amy’s departure and the name and face of their replacement. I now know what episode they’ll be leaving in, I even know the last enemy they’re going to face; Steven Moffat was quoted as saying “Amy and Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in episode five. Not everyone gets out alive – and I mean it this time.” Mr Moffat has also said “Their story is going to come to a heartbreaking end,” whatever that means....

Podcasts and VBlogs...
Beware most podcasts are of an adult nature and are not suitable for children.

The Doctor Who Podcast has Episode 136 – Series 7 speculation and news. Tom, Leeson and James discuss the news surrounding the new series of Doctor Who which is currently filming. Please note – this episode contains spoilers for information that has been officially released by the BBC and production team members such as Steven Moffat.  A clear, and unmissable warning is given in the episode for when spoilers are afoot.

Mostly Harmless Cutaway has MHC 72 The Cutaway Cheats II. Some time ago, certainly prior to Gally 23, Eric and Christopher were pondering what innovation they could come up to take Doctor Who podcastery to another level. Just then the germ of The Cutaway Cheats was born.

'Who' - Is The Man has Podcast episode 42: Presenting the Ramble of The Titans!. "In this episode I ramble."

Impossible Podcasts has Fantasy Doctor Who Film Draft. We're four years old today! And to celebrate, we're challenging David Yates to his own game and coming up with our very own Doctor Who movie. High concept ideas. Multi million dollar budgets. A cast of thousands. These are just some of the things we'll never be trusted with and, on the strength of this podcast, that's probably a wise move. But we let our imaginations run riot and cook up not one, but six competing movie pitches. Who are our Doctors of choice? Which monsters will they be facing? And who will write and direct the madness? Join us to find out!

RedBubble has Doctor Who? by Malcolm Taylor. Street Art in Rundle Mall Adelaide.

RedBubble.com also has I Love Love Gallifreyan Boys by valelanz94.

Review's Roundup...

Siskoid's Blog of Geekery has Doctor Who 141: The Power of the Daleks Part 5. "If you've been waiting for the Daleks to go crazy and start overrunning the colony, this is the episode for you. The Daleks have multiplied and hold an insane, cacophonous rally, pumping themselves full of hate before putting their plan into action...."

TARDIS Eruditorum has Tea From An Urn (The Awakening). Perhaps the most striking thing about The Awakening, at least to a modern eye, is that it figures out how to do the two-part story. Or, at least, rediscovers it - David Whitaker had the gist of this figured out in the mid-60s. (Then again, to some extent the entire history of Doctor Who after 1968 is just people figuring out what David Whitaker understood all along.) But as The Awakening is the only 45-minute Doctor Who story to work between The Rescue and Rose, it bears some analysis on those grounds alone....

Classical Gallifrey has Serial 47: The Krotons. Produced as the "middle serial" of season six, it's worth pointing out that this is the last story of the first half of Patrick Troughton's last season. By this point, the burnout factor of Doctor Who in the 1960s was starting to take its toll on the show. And hey, who can blame them? This isn't a soap opera with the fortitude to produce THAT many episodes, and this was the sixth year in a row that Doctor Who had produced forty or more episodes....
