Series 7 Delayed???

io9 are reporting that Series 7 will be delayed until 2013.  The story suggests that 2012 may be another year of specials.  This would mean Series 7 will coincide with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.  More here:



I really hope this is just a rumor.  A split series this year, a delay for the next one... WE NEED OUR WHO!

The Amy opening!

Many of you people have been asking what the the difference between the regular (UK version) and  the other versions of the opening for this season were. Well let me explain.


The show starts out with the teaser as usual. The teaser is the part of the story that airs before the title credits to get people interested in the episode.


Next comes the difference. I call it the Amy intro. and here is a link to it:

Doctor Who - series six pre-titles


...then it goes straight into the titles - you can tell where by where the theme music cuts in on the clip.


...and then the story goes on until the commercial break - or at least that's how it is done on BBC America.

Big Finish - 150 monthly releses

In August of this year Big Finish will have released it's 150th title in it's monthly line of Doctor Who audio dramas.This doesn't include the other series like the Benny stories or Eighth Doctor Adventures, Doctor Who Unbound, specials, etc...

This got me to thinking about my favorites.

These are some of my favorites (in no certain order):

Spare Parts - we see the return of original cybermen and Nyssa trying to stop their creation.

LIVE 34 - a unique play that presents a story in an unusual format, the adventures of the 7th Doctor, Ace and Hex brought through news broadcast.

The Chimes of Midnight - A murder-mystery where every time the clock chimes midnight, somebody dies.

The Juggernauts - The return of the Mechanoids.

Colditz - The introduction of Klien and the 7th Doctor and Ace imprisoned in Colditz prison.

Omega, Davros, Master - three stories that examine other aspects from these three characters.
