This Week In Doctor Who - December 6, 2010

This Week In Doctor Who – December 6, 2010
Section A
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.

11th Doctor Christmas Adventure Set 2010

11th Doctor Christmas Adventure Set 2010Just 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.

The Raggedy Doctor and the 11th Doctor

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.

Happy holidays!

You Got Doctor Who in my Star Wars! (video)

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.

The Craig Ferguson "Lost" Doctor Who Opening Song (Video)

If you watched The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a couple weeks ago with special guest, Matt Smith, you would know that they prepared a song that in the end they could not transmit on the show due to not having the clearances. That didn't stop Craig Ferguson from suggesting or hinting that someone should put it up on YouTube… Here's the "musical extravaganza that never made the show."

A New Sonic Newsdriver is Available and New Doctor Who: Podshock Episodes are Coming!

Shhh… I'm recording.

For those that follow me on Twitter probably know I had been fighting off some nasty bug shortly after the GE anniversary event, then came the Thanksgiving Day holiday here in the US... Long story short, it delayed production of all shows coming from ATP including Doctor Who: Podshock of course. Fear not though, there will be new episodes coming down the vortex soon starting with a DWP Extra show for supporting subscribers. We will try to step up production to catch up on the last couple weeks.

First up is a new episode of The Sonic Newsdriver. Available on The Sonic Newsdriver feed and on the Sonic Newsdriver Podcast App for the iPhone / iPod touch. See details below.

Peter Davison in Law and Order UK

So you can have your Apollo and Doctor too.

The show's pretty good.  The reason it seems so familiar is because they use scripts from the US version and just UK 'em up a bit.  No problem with that!

The Cybermen Invade London Again!

Once again London was invaded by the Cybermen! This time around it wasn't some diabolical scene of Tobias Vaughn, but publicity for the newly opening "Doctor Who Experience" in london. The same steps used in the iconic Patrick Troughton era story "The Invasion" were used once again. Later on the Cybermen marched onto the London Underground.

The Doctor who experience will open in London on the 20th of February 2011. more photos below. www.doctorwhoexperience.com.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol Promo Photo

There are a bunch of articles I've been meaning to write since last week, unfortunately I have been fighting off a nasty bug I probably picked up at our anniversary event a week ago. And no, that would not be 'Bug' as in Pete's nickname who was there.

With that said, this may be old news, but only if you haven't seen it already. Below is a publicity photo for the upcoming 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol that the BBC released recently.
