BBC Announces River Song's Return in the 2015 Christmas Special

River Song 2015

Christmas came early this year when I received a message from our very own Louis Trapani this morning. That message - a link to the following story - was Christmas come early. 

The Doctor and River Song Reunite for a Spectacular Christmas


Normally, I would prefface this notice by stating a most appropriate phrase; however, today...SPOILERS wouldn't be sufficient.


River Song 2015

Alex Kingston returns on Christmas Day 2015 to the role she made famous - River Song.

Doctor Who Podshock Celebrates 10 Years!

Doctor Who Podshock 10th Anniversary

Doctor Who: Podshock began in August 2005 with the first episode and it continues, stronger than ever, in 2015. Like The Doctor, it's regenerated and even changed the desktop theme. While it would be (virtually) impossible to included all the moments of 328 episodes, this brief tribute is..well, my tribute.

My Introduction to Doctor Who

Some of you may know me from recent episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock. While we are quickly manipulating and navigating the vortex that will take us to Series 9, I wanted to introduce myself and discuss how I came to join the Podshock team.


For starters, I'm Kyle Jones or @kylemj6977 on Twitter. I work in Human Resources, but am also a writer on my own and several HR related blogs. My TARDIS is parked in Brandon, MS. So, without further delay, I've ripped the last page from a random book to share the following with you.

Three Decades Celebrating Doctor Who

1985 was a very different time. The year marks the birth of the Gallifreyan Embassy, but let’s take a TARDIS ride back to see what else was going on at the time.

Speaking of time, it was the year that we discovered the wreak of the RMS Titanic after it was lost in way back in 1912.

More-bius; further reflections on an unforgettable Fourth Doctor adventure

I know I talked my head off  (get it?) in PODSHOCK #327 about how much I love THE BRAIN OF MORBIUS, but I'm not through yet. If you're already sick of me talking about it, and why wouldn't you be, really? Then move along -- nothing to see here ...

... Still with me? Oh, good.

I mentioned on #327 how much I appreciated the screenwriting touch, the elegant pathos of having Condo's arm sacrificed to Solon's master work ... and of Condo then seeing the arm and recognising it. I realized later that this is only part of a larger virtue of this script. Where BRAIN OF MORBIUS excels, I think, is in putting sympathetic characters in credible danger. And maybe nowhere is this more striking than in the plot element of Sarah Jane's temporary blindness.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler

Today is a celebration! Why?  Today is the 10th anniversary of Rose, the episode that brought introduced us to Rose Tyler and brought back Doctor Who.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler

10th Episode of the Doctor Who episode Rose

It had been sixteen years since Doctor Who the airing of a regular episode, and it had been nine years since Sylvester McCoy handed over control of the TARDIS to Paul McGann in the TV movie. On March 26, 2005, something magical happened. The BBC broadcast “Rose” to a UK viewership of 10.81 million. Today, on the episode’s 10th Anniversary, I take a look back on the regeneration of a phenomenon. (Information provided, in part, via

Peter Capaldi Being Interviewed by Craig Ferguson in 2009 [VIDEO]

It's interesting seeing this interview now of Peter Capaldi on Craig Ferguson's late night chat show years before (from 2009) he was cast as The Doctor. Pay very close attention what Peter is wearing, a definite precursor to his Doctor's costume. Doctor Who doesn't come up in conversation (Peter was there promoting his then new movie, In the Loop, but Craig does bring up their past history together including 'dropping acid' and being part of a punk rock band (The Dreamboys). It's also the first time Peter is speaking to an American audience.

The “Troughton Is My Doctor” (Doctor Who News and Opinion) blog is featuring Doctor Who: Podshock in their Podcastrovalva series which to my understanding will focus on Doctor Who podcasts. This is the first entry in that series and it features Doctor Who: Podshock. Below is a segment from the article. For the full piece, visit the linked entry on their site below.

Podcastrovalva 1- Podshock | Doctor Who News and Opinion: "I started listening to Doctor Who podcasts during the storm-related hiatus of Podshock. However, since it has been back, it has been one I make sure to always listen to within a day or two of its release."

Emma Campbell-Jones joins the L.I. Who 2 line up "Best news all day"

Paul McGann and Emma Campbell-Jones in "Night of the Doctor"

Emma Campbell-Jones made quite an impression on the Eighth Doctor and on Doctor Who fans as "Cass", the companion who almost was, in "Night of the Doctor".

This wasn't Emma's first encounter with the Doctor. She worked with Matt Smith and company in "The Wedding of River Song" as Dr. Kent. This beautiful and talented actress has made appearances on Red Dwarf, Silent Witness, and recently Law and Order: UK.

Emma Campbell-Jones is a star on the rise and now we'll get a chance to see why the Doctor was quite smitten with her!
