    The UK's Pink Paper has published the results of the Pink Paper Reader's Awards 2006 in their current issue (#891). Winning the spot for "The World's Sexiest Man" is David Tennant who had beat out other contenders David Beckham, Michael Owen, and Brad Pitt for the position. David Tennant is reported as commenting, "Iím surprised to be thought of like that." David Tennant took over the lead role in Doctor Who in 2005 and fended off a Christmas Invasion last month in his first full length outing as the Doctor.

    The national gay and lesbian paper's readership survey aims to celebrate the best and remember the worst of the past year.

    Patrons of a local UK pub in Cardiff may have been slightly alarmed when they spotted Cybermen on the streets outside of The Gatekeeper pub. It was not necessarily a Cybermen invasion, but rather a BBC Wales invasion... as they closed off parts of Womanby Street for shooting footage of Cybermen around the The Gatekeeper and The Horse and Groom pubs.

    David Tennant and Billie Piper may have also been spotted as they were on hand for the shooting as well.

    For the complete story with photographs, see icWales - Dr Who's Cybermen take over street.

    Doctor Who News

    According to news posted on Outpost Gallifrey the region 1 (North America) DVD release of the 2005 series has been delayed for undisclosed reasons. No new release date has been established at this time.

    We do not know if this is perhaps relating to the glitches found in the region 2 release which needed to be addressed or not.

    See our Forums for further discussion on the news. Thanks to hdutch007 for originally posting the information.

    UPDATE: The new release date is set for July 4th for the DVD release so it will not overlap with the series being shown on the Sci-Fi Channel

    The results of the 2005 TV Moments are here. Winning the top coveted spot of Golden Moment of 2005 was none other than Doctor Who!

    Presented by Jonathan Ross on BBC One on New Year's Eve, the 2005 TV Moments also awarded Doctor Who the May/June Top Moment for the moment when "The Doctor, Rose, and Jack hear a deadly voice." A great moment I think we can all agree upon on TV indeed. This was in addition to winning the overall Golden Moment of 2005 that went to the entire series of 2005.

    Well done!

    Doctor Who News

    Actor John Barrowman (Captain Jack) will be tying the knot in a civil union with his partner of ten years, Scott Gill, an architect. They are planning a "low-key" affair with no ceremony, he has told The Sun reportedly. The two are hoping to have a child through a surrogate mother, the daughter of a very old friend.

    John Barrowman joined Doctor Who playing the character Captain Jack Harkness in the 2005 series and is now slated to head up his own spin-off series Torchwood on BBC 3 in the summer of 2006.

    We wish John and Scott well in their union and starting their new family together.

    Doctor Who NewsJust a reminder to those that missed the BBC Radio 2 documentary Regeneration, (broadcast last Tuesday) can catch it again over on the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/events/doctorwho/ Just thought that if you haven't heard this - it might be a good idea to listen to it before watching the Christmas Invasion tomorrow night. Have a great Christmas everyone!

    Doctor Who News

    Outpost Gallifrey is reporting that the TV Shows on DVD web site has the new packaging artwork for the North American DVD box set of the 2005 series of Doctor Who starring Christopher Eccleston.

    Click here for a preview of the North American DVD 2005 Series ("The Complete First Series" as they are labeling it).

    As previously reported here the new region 1, NTSC format DVD box set is scheduled for release in the US and Canada on the 14th of February 2006.

    Judging from this image of the packaging artwork, it appears less box-like than the region 2, PAL format box set which was released in the UK last month. Though the outside size is inconsequential since we all know it is "bigger on the inside."

    According to Digital Spy, guest-star Roger Lloyd-Pack (who we previously reported will be in the 2006 series playing a villainous character named John Lumic), has broke his leg. This has resulted in the Doctor Who producers having "to make hasty changes to the scripts" to fit the broken leg into the story.

    Roger had been concerned after breaking his leg that he would not be able to take his part in Doctor Who.

    According to a source of The Sun, the powers-that-be at the BBC were keen for Roger to stay onboard as a guest star, and they have offered to put his character in a wheelchair to accommodate Roger.

    "His character is a real baddie and the wheelchair is a great prop, which adds a bit of mystery and intrigue to the part. So it has worked out well."
