The BBC America bus advertising campaign for the new Doctor Who 2011 series has rolled out in New York City. They have also used the occasion to post their first image to Instagram (Apple App Store link). They had the account on the free social photo sharing service for some time, but hadn't posted anything to it until now. The first photo shared on it is this one of the Doctor Who bus side panel (see left).
Keep your eyes out for buses in NY sporting the new side ads promoting the new series.

The Daily Mail (on-line version) has a story about the BBC being sued over the use of Davros.
Steven Clark claims that he created the leader of the Daleks in a magzine contest in 1972.
He didn't win the contest but a couple of years later the character of Davros began appearing in the series of 'Doctor Who' in Genesis of the Daleks.
For the full details of the lawsuit you can see the original story here:
and the Doctor Who News Page has an additional story on the debate:
Red Nose Day 2011 - Doctor Who is back with a vengeance as the Doctor (Matt Smith) provides some cosmic relief. The wonderful Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is usually a handful on her own but in this special episode she confronts herself, literally.
Doctor Who Monthly has reported via Twitter this morning the sad news of the death of actor Michael Gough. He will be remembered by Doctor Who fans as the Celestial Toymaker in the story of the same name (The Celestial Toymaker) in 1966 with the first Doctor (William Hartnell) and Councillor Hedin in the 1983 story, Arc of Infinity with the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison).
You may also recall him for his parts on the big screen such as the trustworthy butler Alfred Pennyworth in the 1989 Batman film as well as its sequels, Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman & Robin (1997).
Also included in his long list of credits is Sleepy Hollow (1999) playing Notary Hardenbrook.
