If you enjoyed our discussion on the ins and outs of building your own TARDIS (Police Box) in Doctor Who: Podshock 230 with special guests, the crew from The Happiness Patrol podcast, check out the latest episode of their podcast (The Happiness Patrol 47) in which I was invited on to talk about another Doctor Who icon, scarves!
Read my recent blog entry on ATP about it:
For what feels like for the longest time, we have been trying to get Lewis Bailey to join us on an episode Doctor Who: Podshock. Lewis does a podcast called The Happiness Patrol @TheHPatrol along with Dale Who @FishCustard2010 , Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara (who you may also know as a Corespondent for Doctor Who: Podshock), and Lela Sandstrom @LelaSandstrom, due to scheduling reasons it never worked out. He has been also trying to get me on The Happiness Patrol as well for a while and for the same reason, it hadn't worked. Although we had Lewis on an episode in a recorded segment at the Doctor Who: Podshock 5th Anniversary Event we held last August as well on an episode from Gallifrey 21 last February in Los Angeles at our Meet & Greet Event there, this is the first time we have him on our show in a studio setting for Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 230 along with Dale, Tara, and Lela. Not only is The Happiness Patrol in the latest episode of DWP, but I am in the latest episode of The Happiness Patrol as well!

I'll let you read the article , its not long, but the Doctor's trusty sonic screwdriver could one day beome a reality! Apparently these "engineers are already experimenting with ultrasonic waves to move and manipulate small objects" & "By operating the waves at frequencies way beyond the realms of human hearing, they can be used to apply forces to objects."

This Week In Doctor Who – December 6, 2010
By Benjamin F Elliott
New computer and no template to use. That’s weird. So where was I? Ah yes, Doctor Who schedules.
Due to production issues on this edition, it is going out on a Monday evening US time. Also, I am releasing the main Doctor Who listings before finishing the Torchwood listings or Section B (Sarah Jane, K9, and the PBS Doctor Who broadcasts). If you are reading this through the “Doctor Who News Page” or via the “Gallifreyan Embassy”, the extra sections will appear at the end of the page as they’re completed. I hope to publish a few more times in December as I put the column back together again. Hope to be truly “weekly” again by January. Still, we are not here to discuss my technical problems. We’re here to find out when our favourite show is on TV all around the world.
Just in time for the holidays (depending on when your holiday falls), it is the "11th Doctor: Christmas Adventure Set 2010" available now on the Forbidden Planet website. It features the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond sporting her kiss-a-gram police uniform and a non-electronic TARDIS with front doors that open and judging from the photo, access to the phone as well. It is expected to be available on the 20th of December 2010. It sells for £26.99.
I can only assume this is being called a "Christmas Adventure set" solely due to the fact of when it is being released because to the best of my knowledge, Amy will not be wearing her police uniform in the upcoming Christmas special, A Christmas Carol. It would be more fitting to call it 'The Eleventh Hour' Adventure set… though technically the Doctor was still in his 10th Doctor hand-me-down raggedy clothes when Amy was in her kiss-a-gram police uniform. If you want 'The Raggedy Doctor' it is available in a two figure set. This two figure set is available for £11.99.
This is like someone getting peanut butter in my chocolate, or something like that (actually, I am not too keen mixing the two). This video marries two of my favourite pastimes, Star Wars and Doctor Who. It doesn't make much sense, but it is fun and interesting to look at, that much is certain. Ha! You have to love Amy Pond in it. Outstanding production values for a parody project like this… Thanks to @steven3x for the heads up on it.
