Change in Regenerations!?! *SPOILERS*

The Doctor is now IMMORTAL! (?)

I dont know who has heard this info but I definitely wanted to share it. I found these articles on Blastr which is a great site for new and awesome sci fi news.

Apparently the issue of 12 regenerations will be addressed in the Sarah Jane Adventures episode 'Death of the Doctor'. Thats right, they arent even addressing a major canon point on the Doctor's own show. I'll let you guys read the two articles but apparently the issue of 12 regens will be solved by a simple throw away line where the Doctor says there is no limit after being asked how many times he could.

Maybe he just tells Clyde this so that he wont worry about him? Because thatd be understandable and wont mess up Who canon.

Steven Moffat, Explains....

In DWM Steven Moffat has his own page at the beginning of the magazine called "Production Notes" well in DWM 426 (That's the Cybermen Special and it's why I own it!) Steven goes into explaining the series split and there are a few thing which come to the fore.

1.) Dear Steven even isn't sure even at this time, as to how the series will be numbered in the future, seeing as he's called the series 1, 5, 11, 31 and Fnarg by his own admittance. Fnarg being my personal favourite.

2.) Spoilers or not, so if you don't like possible spoilers skip the first paragraph that Steven has written.

A Song for the BBC

Further to a piece of E-mail Louis, Ken and James received in Doctor Who: Podshock 224, where the Author bemoaned having to pay the BBC licence fee. And we all know how James is a great champion for the BBC, well here's another.

Mitch Benn is well known in his own right as a Comical Singer Songwriter, and is part of the BBC Radio 4 "The Now Show!" with Steve Punt and High Dennis.  Put everything (He could think of, including Blakes 7 and Tripods so that should keep ken happy, and yes Doctor Who does get a mention!) down in to one song. He himself would probably say it's not everything that the BBC has done or does but, for us Doctor Who fans the Show gets the most mentions in the song. Mitch Benn being another vocal fan.

Can 'Doctor Who' live forever?

The Guardian has this story about the plans to remove the 'rule' about regenerating only 12 times. It states that in 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' that the issue will be addressed. 

This could 'in theory' make the Doctor immortal. I'm not sure how I feel about that or how accurate the story is so I'll leave that for the future.

 

Here is the link to the story on 'The Guardian':

Doctor Who is now immortal, reveals the BBC

Cheers! Wink

 

ADDITIONAL:

 

I found this additional story from 'Den of Geek' about this so I thought I'd add it to this story as well.

 

 

NYCC 2010

This past weekend was New York Comic Con 2010 and Doctor Who fans showed up in full force.

I was dressed as the Tenth Doctor on Friday and a Gryffindor Quidditch Player on saturday. Sunday I was casual. The convention itself was fantastic. Had a few hiccups with the combination with NYAF (New York Anime Festival) but it was still fun. Daphne Ashbrook was there signing at the Doctor Who Store booth and Podshock had a live recording with comic writer Tony Lee. The podcast was great and it was a phenominal interview :) Podshock was in the last block of panels on Sunday at 4pm (NYCC closed at 5pm) and they still filled the room they were in so that people were standing along the sides and back. Now that is impressive and I hope that shows NYCC that Doctor Who fans will definitely show up for more DW panels and guests!

The Reveal to the Restoration Team's Little Tease

Further to the Restoration Team's little tease I put up on Thursday/Friday last week, the reveal.

It's a totally revamped version of Day of The Daleks. OK as far as I can remember it's only on VHS so far, but the revamp comes not only with the special effects of modern Dalek zapping, which can be seen in the trailer. But Mr. Dalek AKA Nick Briggs re-does the voices for this release. There also comes the news that at least on the European side of the Atlantic that Day of the Daleks will be part of the Revisitations Boxed Set Nr. 2.

The other DVD's should be Carnival of monsters and Resurrection of the Daleks, which is again another one I already have in my collection. With Carnival it's not so bad I looked at the lack of extra's and picked it up on iTunes. 

A release date has not yet been set.  The trailer from Classic DW from Twitter (the official Restoration Team Twitter handle) and the DWO site can be seen below.

SJA - The Nightmare Man

I saw The Nightmare Man - Part 1, the first episode of series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures. I see they are showing Part 2 tomorrow. So I will have to assume, like last year (series 3), they will be showing two episodes per week.

I will wait until I see part 2 before commenting further on this story.

Let this post serve as a placemark for discussions on The Nightmare Man.

Doctor in the USA!

So this started off as a rumour on Friday, and according at least to BBC America is going to happen.

A collaboration between the BBC and BBC America sees a filming block taking part in the US, Utah to be a little more specific, according to press, the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River land in Utah, more than that I shall not reveal because it gets into major spoiler territory. Only I do have a BBC America clip for you.
