Steven Moffat, Explains....

In DWM Steven Moffat has his own page at the beginning of the magazine called "Production Notes" well in DWM 426 (That's the Cybermen Special and it's why I own it!) Steven goes into explaining the series split and there are a few thing which come to the fore.

1.) Dear Steven even isn't sure even at this time, as to how the series will be numbered in the future, seeing as he's called the series 1, 5, 11, 31 and Fnarg by his own admittance. Fnarg being my personal favourite.

2.) Spoilers or not, so if you don't like possible spoilers skip the first paragraph that Steven has written.

A Song for the BBC

Further to a piece of E-mail Louis, Ken and James received in Doctor Who: Podshock 224, where the Author bemoaned having to pay the BBC licence fee. And we all know how James is a great champion for the BBC, well here's another.

Mitch Benn is well known in his own right as a Comical Singer Songwriter, and is part of the BBC Radio 4 "The Now Show!" with Steve Punt and High Dennis.  Put everything (He could think of, including Blakes 7 and Tripods so that should keep ken happy, and yes Doctor Who does get a mention!) down in to one song. He himself would probably say it's not everything that the BBC has done or does but, for us Doctor Who fans the Show gets the most mentions in the song. Mitch Benn being another vocal fan.

The Reveal to the Restoration Team's Little Tease

Further to the Restoration Team's little tease I put up on Thursday/Friday last week, the reveal.

It's a totally revamped version of Day of The Daleks. OK as far as I can remember it's only on VHS so far, but the revamp comes not only with the special effects of modern Dalek zapping, which can be seen in the trailer. But Mr. Dalek AKA Nick Briggs re-does the voices for this release. There also comes the news that at least on the European side of the Atlantic that Day of the Daleks will be part of the Revisitations Boxed Set Nr. 2.

The other DVD's should be Carnival of monsters and Resurrection of the Daleks, which is again another one I already have in my collection. With Carnival it's not so bad I looked at the lack of extra's and picked it up on iTunes. 

A release date has not yet been set.  The trailer from Classic DW from Twitter (the official Restoration Team Twitter handle) and the DWO site can be seen below.

Doctor in the USA!

So this started off as a rumour on Friday, and according at least to BBC America is going to happen.

A collaboration between the BBC and BBC America sees a filming block taking part in the US, Utah to be a little more specific, according to press, the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River land in Utah, more than that I shall not reveal because it gets into major spoiler territory. Only I do have a BBC America clip for you.
