This Week In Doctor Who - Section A
July 10, 2010 - Vol 13, Number 25
by Benjamin F. Elliott
All the known broadcasts of Doctor Who covered weekly since 1998. With the spinoffs too.
AUSTRALIA - ABC1 airs series finale The Big Bang on 11 July at 7:30PM. No talk of marathons or special events at this time, though Australia will be getting the finale about 2 weeks before the US, Canada, and New Zealand. No sign of a repeat run yet.
So after what seems like an eternity and for some peculiar reason as to why the figures could not be released( The Official Viewing FIgures were with held by BARB on the BBC's request.) the final viewing figures for the "Big Bang" are available.
6.12 Million People Watched the Big Bang officially on BBC 1. with 0.72 Million watching the Repeat on BBC 3. as of yet I am unable to find the BBC HD numbers.
I meant to post this a couple weeks ago, but with series 31 wrapping up and with all of our live shows reviewing it all at the time, I never had a chance.
Even in this day of podcasts and other new media, the art of the fanzine is still around. As evidence is the launch of a new one covering Doctor Who, Fish FIngers and Custard.
In the premiere issue, it features a review of The Eleventh Hour, an article about the infamous 'PBS hijacking incident', Invasion Convention review, 'Cracks', an original 11th Doctor story, 'The Doctor in Wonderland', "It Could Have Been a Spin-off", a column by actor Harry Sedgewick, and what else?
Oh yes, an interview with some bloke named, Louis Trapani. There's much more, so check it out.
Digital Spy has reported that a graphic novel based on 'Doctor Who' will be coming out in September (16th). The title of it is 'The Only Good Dalek' and will feature the 11th Docotr and Amy Pond.
Here is a link to the story on Digital Spy:
No, this has nothing to do with the JNT question marks on the shirt collars of the Doctors (or in the 7th Doctor's case, his sweater vest)… No, this has to do our site URLs. It is now using "clean URLs" meaning the "?=" that appeared in our URLs are no longer there, but the previous URL links with them should still work.
The change may have broken a few links to graphics on our site. These can be fixed. If you find any, please let me know. I think I fixed most of them.
The negative side effect is that all the tweet counts on each article now have been reset to "0" -- So even if a story has been retweeted 18 times, it now shows up as "0" because the way it calculates retweets is by the URL.
The reason for the change is simply to make it easier for others to type out our URLs (if for some reason they are not using 'copy and paste' and for some automated web systems to comprehend our URLs better - although this hasn't been an issue thus far).
Exiled to Earth and now working for UNIT as their scientific advisor, the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) is summoned to an underground research center at Wenley Moor to investigate a series of inexplicable power losses. Available in color for the first time!
