    With apologies to our regular listeners, Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 11 will be delayed a week. This is due to forces of nature beyond our control (I am recovering from my home being flooded).

    If possible, we may release an abbreviated podcast before Episode 11... perhaps as Podshock - Episode 10.5. But more likely, we will just return with Episode 11 in full force.

    We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused for our loyal listeners.

    BBC Press Release:
    Captain Jack to get his own series in new Russell T Davies drama for BBC THREE

    Russell T Davies is to write a sci-fi paranoid thriller in a major new drama commission for BBC THREE, it was announced today by Stuart Murphy, Controller of BBC THREE.

    Torchwood is a 13-part drama series aimed at a post-watershed audience and has an organic link to Doctor Who.

    "Torchwood is a British sci-fi paranoid thriller, a cop show with a sense of humour," says Davies.

    "It's dark, wild and sexy, it's the X-Files meets This Life. It's a stand-alone series for adult audiences which will have its own unique identity.

    "I have just begun working on the scripts with a team of writers and cannot wait to see the results."

    Set in modern-day Cardiff, Torchwood stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack from Doctor Who; it's in the Christmas special and second series of Doctor Who that the story of Torchwood a renegade group of investigators is seeded.

    However, no stories will cross over between Torchwood and Doctor Who.

    The drama series is produced by BBC Wales and will be transmitted later next year.

    Torchwood

    If you visit the BBC - Doctor Who web site tonight, you will be greeted by a logo in the same style as "Doctor Who" but instead it reads "Torchwood" with the further information below it reading "Summer 2006 | BBC Three | Starring John Barrowman | Created by Russell T Davies."

    What is this all about?

    Well, it has to be Doctor Who related of course... and if you notice, "Torchwood" is an anagram of "Doctor Who" but what exactly is this production starring John Barrowman on BBC Three in the summer of 2006? Will Barrowman be reprising his role as 'Captain Jack' in a spin-off perhaps?

    We'll post more information on this as it becomes available.

    UPDATE:

    According to The Independent Online Edition it reports that Torchwood is a new programme commissioned to Russell T Davies by the BBC. The new show is described as consisting of "a crack team investigating alien activities and crime in modern-day Britain."

    As speculated above, John Barrowman will be reprising his Captain Jack Harkness character in Torchwood.

    The series starting in the summer of 2006 on BBC Three will be 13 episodes, each 45 minutes in length

    Read more about it in BBC to screen 'Dr Who for adults' as new spin-off show and the BBC Press Release concerning Torchwood.

    Doctor Who News

    During the Pride of Britain Awards, Christopher Eccleston presented Cameron Weir with the Child of Courage award as a double life-saver.

    Cameron, then 12 was in a 4x4 vehicle with his mum, dad, 10 year old sister Rosie, and 7 year old brother Mac when the car his dad was driving hit a metal barrier and plunged down a hill into the water, landing upside down.

    Cameron unfastened his seat-belt and swam through the broken window to the surface. Realizing he was the first to escape, he took a deep breath of air and returned to the underwater wreck to rescue Mac first, then again for Rosie who has severe mental and physical disabilities.

    "I was scared, but it was all happening too fast, and I didn't really think about what I was doing," Cameron stated.

    Actions surely that would make the Doctor himself very proud of Cameron. For the complete story, see: The Mirror: THE PRIDE OF BRITAIN AWARDS: CAMERON'S A SAVIOUR AT THE DOUBLE

    "Swansea has been besieged with Cybermen and Daleks all weekend," reported Roger White, the promoter of Regenerations, a convention celebrating more than 40 years of Doctor Who held at the Marriott Hotel in Swansea, Wales on Sunday, September 25th. He stated, "It's been a complete sell-out."

    "The real hardcore followers have been there since day one, but Russell [Russell T Davies] helped raise the profile tremendously. People have been turning up from all over to attend, making this the biggest convention in Europe for about 10 years."

    In each episode of Doctor Who: Podshock we ask for listeners to send in their feedback and encourage listeners to make an audio feedback if they can to be played on the show. Many listeners may not have the audio equipment needed to record an audio feedback to send in to us... to address this, we now have a phone line in which listeners can record their comments as a voice mail message. No audio equipment is needed outside of a telephone!

    To take advantage of this service, simply call the Podshock Public Call Box by calling 206-350-6171 (note: this is a new number as of 4 - Feb - 08).

    The number is in operation 24 hours a day. Please note that it is a United States phone number in the 206 area code. All if any calling charges will apply. In other words, calls made to the Podshock Public Call Box number are long distance for people outside the 206 area code in the US. These calls will incur normal long distance charges from the long distance carrier you use. There are no surcharges or special charges for calls made to the Podshock Public Call Box number. (We recommend if you have a bunch of stored extra free minutes in your mobile (cell) phone, now you have an excuse to use them).

    All submissions will be considered to be played within our podcast, but we can not guarantee that all submissions will be included in our show.

    As previously reported, Doctor Who will be coming the very tiny screens of mobile phones... The BBC is now reporting that Christopher Eccleston series of Doctor Who will be coming to the larger screens of the Sony PSP (Playstation Portable). The new series is being produced on the proprietary UMD disc format (used by the PSP) by 2 Entertain starting October 17th with the release of Doctor Who Volume Two. You read that right, they are starting with Volume Two, which features the episodes Aliens of London, World War Three, and Dalek all on one disc.

    Volume One, Volume Three, and Volume Four will then follow this release in December some time (in time for the holidays). Be prepared to shell out 17.99 for each disc.

    So when will we have an actual modern Doctor Who game for the PSP or one of the home consoles?
