    Doctor Who News

    Doctor Who has been added to the list of official English icons. Voted by the public, but selected by academics and arts experts, in a project that celebrates England's heritage, Doctor Who joins 56 other national icons.

    "We are all honoured and delighted. The public have taken the Doctor to their hearts," stated Russell T Davies, the producer of the current series yesterday.

    Doctor Who nominated by thousands of fans as a "classic symbol of Englishness" was added to the list of icons along with 20 others including: Winnie the Pooh, the Thames, Wimbledon, cheddar cheese, red telephone boxes, Rolls-Royce, Westminster Abbey, and Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album by The Beatles among others.

    Doctor Who NewsFrom the BBC's Doctor Who page:

    In what will be music to the ears of many, we can finally reveal initial details of the upcoming Doctor Who soundtrack album.

    Released by Silva Screen Records on 04 December 2006, the album will feature Murray Gold's version of the Doctor Who theme, plus many of his various incidental scores from Series 1 and 2.

    The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon contributes a version of Song for Ten (from last year's Christmas special) and Love Don't Roam, which will feature in the Runaway Bride.

    Also included is the much-requested Doomsday - the song that played during Rose's trip to Bad Wolf Bay in Episode 13 of Series 2.

    Other tracks include Cassandra's Waltz, Harriet Jones, Prime Minister, plus the themes specially created for the Doctor and Rose.

    TorchwoodThe opening episodes of Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood drew the largest digital channel audience for a non-sport programme, says the BBC.

    The first two instalments of the series, starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, also attracted BBC Three's largest ever audience.

    The 2100 BST episode had 2.4 million viewers and a 12.7% audience share, the 2145 BST one had 2.3 million (13.8%).

    Two football matches in 2004 and 2005 earned larger digital TV audiences.

    BBC Three controller Julian Bellamy said the audience figures for the new sci-fi series were an "incredible achievement".

    "I'm delighted that last night's Torchwood was such a big hit," he said.

    Torchwood

    It was one year ago, in October 2005 when mysteriously on the BBC Doctor Who web site that we first saw the Doctor Who logo with the letters rearranged to spell out "Torchwood"... which was the first official public announcement of this new spin-off series being written and produced by Russell T Davies. Starring John Barrowman reprising his role from Doctor Who of the character Captain Jack Harkness. We learned that the new series would focus on a team of investigators targeting extraterrestrial threats here on Earth.

    The 2006 series of Doctor Who had been littered with Torchwood references which built momentum not only for what was to come at the conclusion of the 2006 series, but for this new spin-off series as well.

    The long wait will be over next week when the new Torchwood series will make its debut on BBC Three at 9pm on Sundays starting on the 22nd of October. The Gallifreyan Embassy and Doctor Who: Podshock will continue our coverage of this new Doctor Who spin-off series as it unfolds here on our site and the podcast. Stay tuned.

    Doctor Who News

    According to an article on CBBC (Dr Who soundtrack coming to shops), the long awaited and much anticipated new Doctor Who soundtrack by Murray Gold is being projected to go on sale around the third week of November of this year, just in time for the holidays. The album, still in production will include music as recent as selections from The Runaway Bride Christmas special which won't even be transmitted until the following month after the album's release (if it is does indeed hit the stores towards the end of November). Other tracks on the album will include the main theme and highlights from the first and second series (2005 and 2006 series), including "Song for Ten" and the favourite melody of the Doctor and Rose separated from the episode Doomsday.

    No definite release date has been set as of yet. No word on whether it will be available to purchase digitally via the net either at this time (i.e. iTunes).
