Here's your chance to own a piece of history or future as it may be in Doctor Who: The Auction at Bonhams. While this is not the first time we have seen Doctor Who props and costumes being auctioned at Bonhams, this has to one of the largest we have seen.
Everything from a Cyberman (left) seen in The Five Doctors to the bus in Planet of the Dead are up for grabs. The auction items are mostly costumes (wardrobe and alien costumes with masks) and related props, be it the 10th Doctor's formal wear from Voyage of the Damned to the Magma beast from The Caves of Androzani. Even the Malus (right) is up for grabs from The Awakening and a Doctor Who auction wouldn't be complete without a Dalek or two. All authentic BBC items used on screen from the long running series.
It is a shame that all of these items are not going into a museum as a collection for all to enjoy. We can only hope that they will find homes that will take care of each piece. Viewings for interested bidders will take place between Sunday 21 February and Wednesday 24 February 2010.
The first three episode titles of Series 31 (2010 series) has been revealed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine according to a story by Digital Spy today.
Those who may consider episode titles as spoilers, read no further.
The first episode featuring the 11th Doctor is appropriately named 'The Eleventh Hour' followed by the episode, 'The Beast Below.' Both are written by series executive producer and lead writer, Steven Moffat.
The third episode is titled 'Victory of the Daleks' written by Mark Gatiss (writer of the 9th Doctor story, 'Unquiet Dead' and actor in the title role in the 10th Doctor episode, 'The Lazarus Experiment').
He is playing the part of a curator of an exhibition of Vincent van Gogh. It is episode 10 in Series 31, written by Richard Curtis (The Black Adder, Mr. Bean).
Digital Spy reports that a 'set insider' told them, "It was a real coup to get Bill Nighy in Doctor Who, especially in Richard Curtis's amazing episode. Bill plays a van Gogh expert with some similar fashion choices to The Doctor himself."
It is said that this story is to take place in 19th century France as well as present day.

According to a recent blog post on the Entertainment Weekly (EW) website, NBC may be putting the new series starring David Tennant, Rex Is Not Your Lawyer on hold.
We originally reported that the series had been green lighted in November. According to the piece in EW, it was to possibly fill the holes left by Jay Leno's 10pm slot this spring, but now, "the sets are coming down this week" for it according to an EW source.
It stated that NBC declined to comment, but states that the series will remain for consideration for the autumn television schedule line up.

This Week In Doctor Who
January 23, 2010 - Vol 13, No 4
The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.

Just a quick couple of bits of housekeeping.
1) FOX is talking to Russell T Davies about doing a script for Torchwood. If there is a US or International Torchwood series, it will be covered in Torchwood This Week section like the existing show.

The BBC is seeking a new producer to head up series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures according to an article today on ATV Network. It states that shooting is due to start in March and that the BBC will produce 12 episodes starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.
This comes on the heels of yesterday's report in The Hollywood Reporter that The Sarah Jane Adventures creator and producer, Russell T Davies is spearheading a US version of Torchwood with Fox. We can assume the reason the BBC is seeking a new producer for CBBC spin-off of Doctor Who is due to the fact that Russell T Davies is in the US and if reports are correct, may be busy with the US Torchwood project.
The Sunday tradition continues at Gallifrey 21 this year when once again Doctor Who: Podshock takes the stage for a live recording of our show! Now at a new time, 1pm PST on Sunday the 28th of February at Gallifrey 21 (February 26-28, 2010).
The live show will be bigger than ever before with special guests including Georgia Moffett, Andrew Hayden-Smith, Louise Page, John Fay, and more! Plus like last year, we will have a surprise or two, yes special surprise guests (outside of the convention guests)!
Nothing's posted yet, but keep an eye on this site for a Who memorabilia auction:
According to a Hollywood Reporter article, there may be a new US version of Torchwood coming to Fox. Series creator and producer Russell T Davies along with producer Julie Gardner are to be spearheading the project with executive VP of programming and production at BBC Worldwide Productions, Jane Tranter.
The article suggests that some of the original cast may be onboard the project as well, mainly John Barrowman.
