1-The Roof of the World
Oh my goodness, look ! A time travel show! That goes into the past and uses a historical figure AND takes its time to build a world!
This is ...well, fantastic. It is how Doctor Who should be more often. The Loose Cannon reconstruction is almost like watching the show and Mark Eden does an opening telling us that of all the wiped stories, this one should not have been wiped and I agree. He also does, in character as Marco, a diary entry putting us into the story but don't worry, nothing is missing here: we get the opening credits and the full story, not the terrible 30 minute thing on the BEGINNING dvd set. AND almost all of this is in color, colored, I think, by hand! And there are photos of the whole story pretty much.
Sorry I've been quiet for a while, but its been a very busy few weeks, with preparations for this week's highly successful first event for Who York - An Evening with Louise Jameson, work, and having a fantastic time this past weekend in Orlando for the inaugural Hurricane Who convention! They've announced year 2 of this convention, and its now a fixture in my calendar, and you would do well to do the same!
What better way to whet or rather 'wet' your appetite for Waters of Mars coming to BBC One on Sunday, November 15th by joining us for our seasonal meet up on Second Life the day before, Saturday the 14th of November.
You thought things were frightening on Friday the 13th, wait until Saturday the 14th when we all come together once again for a Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock virtual meet up! The following day you may be busy watching and re-watching the long awaited next Doctor Who special, Waters of Mars starring David Tennant, but you got nothing going on the day before, right? Now you do!
This Doctor Who: Podshock default cover art "TARDIS Trio" Style D was actually designed in the summer of 2009 reflecting some of the changes concerning our podcast as well as some anticipation of a logo change. It made its debut in the Gallifreyan Embassy Café Shop, August 2009
"Ah, you come to help me find the Zero Room. Welcome aboard."
Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 168 EXTRA Edition

BAFTA winning actor, Noel Clarke (Mickey / Ricky on Doctor Who) stars in Reign of Death, written and directed by Matthew Savage. An upcoming sci-fi noir project from Ganymede Productions Ltd and It's My Shout. For further information on the project, visit their Facebook page.
This trailer promo was released this week.
Well now. That put me to sleep. Rather the first 12 minutes did. It's nice to see more of the TARDIS with machines, couches, and whole walls without roundels. In one scene toward the very end of this ep, the Doctor is at the console and the wall facing him has not one roundel. It has a TWILIGHT ZONE feel to it. This is the first ep to use stock music and American stock music at that. The music reminds me of the later LOST IN SPACE-INVADERS FROM THE 5TH DIMENSION, which was equally effective, and again, some of the better TWILIGHT ZONE and OUTER LIMIT scores.
The latest promo for Doctor Who: Waters of Mars from today, the 4th of November 2009. The first of the last three specials with David Tennant as the 10th Doctor will be transmitted on Sunday, the 15th of this month on BBC One in the UK at 7pm. It will come to BBC America on the 19th of December at 9pm ET/PT.
