Sarah Jane, The Doctor, and Jo Grant Return in October

According to various (unconfirmed) reports on the net, the new 4th series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be returning to the BBC and CBBC on Monday, 11 October 2010 (with part 1 of The Nightmare Man by Joseph Lidster).

It is unclear whether the new series is back to one episode a week or will it be similar to last year which transmitted two episodes a week. Remember, each story takes two half-hour episodes to tell in The Sarah Jane Adventures. The BBC had commissioned two new series (24 x 30-minutes episodes), this is the first of the two (12 episodes telling six stories). No details as of yet pertaining to this series outside of the UK.

Chameleon Circuit - Type 40 (music video)

Another Doctor Who related music video from Ed Stockham and features the music of the band, Chameleon Circuit, the same folks that brought you An Awful Lot of Running. I still prefer the latter, but this is interesting nonetheless.

Thanks to @AdricAntfarm for bringing it to my attention.

More news coming out concerning the 2011 Doctor Who series (or set of series as it is now) is that we may get a reprieve from the Daleks stories. This according to what executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat hinted at the Edinburgh TV Festival:

Moffat: 'No Daleks in next Who series' - Digital Spy:

"Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, the Who showrunner admitted that there are currently no plans for the famous aliens to reappear, although work on the 2011 series is not yet complete.

Doctor Who, Series Split.

Steven Moffat

Steven Moffat announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival that the next season of Doctor Who will be split. But not like we think of spilt, according to Steven, "The wrong expression would be to say we are splitting it in two. We are making it two separate series." Seven episodes are to be shown up to Easter and the remaining six episodes are to be shown in the autumn.

Sarah Douglas is the Blob-Like Entity in Doctor Who (video)

Here is Sarah Douglas talking about her role in the Doctor Who Adventure Game as the "blob-like entity" / Professor Meadows in this short video. You may recall we broke the story of Sarah's role in Doctor Who when we interviewed her earlier this year at I-CON. If you didn't catch it, it was Doctor Who: Podshock 189. DW: Podshock 189DW: Podshock 189At that time she and we were unsure of exactly what her role was going to be, only that it was for an interactive animated story. We had assumed it may have been another BBC "Red Button" interactive Doctor Who episode before learning of the new Doctor Who Adventure Game series.

On a personal note, it was a real delight spending time with Sarah this past spring. We had her on our show when she during the early stage of this video game project, we would love to have back to speak more on it sometime in the future.

TARDIS 'Hack' at MIT

If you haven't seen this yet, it is a real hoot (did I just say, "hoot"?), what better way to start the the school year off than with a TARDIS appearing on the roof of your university?

Hack on the Little Dome,  77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
25 August 2010
A visit from The Doctor: 'It's bigger on the inside.'

For viewers not intimately familiar with MIT Culture, this is a 'hack' (prank) for the start of the academic year at MIT. New student orientation begins this week. The MIT website has a gallery of hacks from over the years: hacks.mit.edu/ 'The word hack at MIT usually refers to a clever, benign, and 'ethical' prank or practical joke, which is both challenging for the perpetrators and amusing to the MIT community (and sometimes even the rest of the world!).'


(Also, the building isn't dirty; the stone was sopping wet.  It had been raining for three days, and it was still sprinkling when the photo was taken.)
