Celebrating Time And Relative Dimensions In Space!
After showering and cutting my hair (and worrying if I had cut it too short), I was pretty much set for another all-nighter editing Doctor Who: Podshock 224. Then to my surprise, I received an invite via Twitter from (DWP Correspondent) Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara to join her and others to listen to David Tennant on Absolute Radio in the UK. Tara said they were all "dancing." This must had been around 1:30 AM (EDT).
Ok, I could do that. I hadn't heard David Tennant interviewed since his returning to the UK after working here in the States. I figured I would pop over to the live streaming audio of the radio station with the simultaneous webcam view (when it wasn't failing) and see what David Tennant had to say in what I assumed would be a quick interview.
Little did I know once I got there, there was no Mr. Tennant to be found. One of the webcams had a view of an empty chair. So I assumed since they had been dancing before, I must had just missed his interview. I was about to say, "Oh well" and get back to work when I was informed that he had yet to come on. That they were still waiting for him.
The Seeds of Doom DVD release is one that is extra special for Doctor Who: Podshock. You will know why when you view the extras included in the release. Here is promo video for the upcoming Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor DVD title.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 223 EXTRA Edition
Running Time: 0:38:33
In this Extra Edition of Doctor Who: Podshock we interview a director who has worked on Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood: Alice Troughton. Plus Doctor Who news, and some special show announcements in this Doctor Who: Podshock Extra Edition.
This for some reason did not get as much news coverage as one would had thought. From all indications, there was a regeneration at 10 Downing Street right in the middle of an interview being recorded.

"Good news everyone…" (I say in a Professor Fransworth voice from Futurama), The Sonic Newsdriver podcast is back and it's about time (and space of course). The latest episode is now available a week prior to the launch of the 4th series of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and as such, there's plenty of coverage about it in this episode, along with of course news about Doctor Who itself and more. It is a great way to stay on top of selected Doctor Who related news while on the go!
