Doctor Who: Podshock Banners Seen on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

On Monday's episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson it featured a segment on Gallifrey One 2011 featuring video shot at the convention which included our banners for Doctor Who: Podshock, as well as Tara Wheeler's TARDIS and Tara @TARDIS_Tara herself.

If you missed the segment with Chris Hardwick and "Bridger" recorded at Gallifrey One for the late night show, Graeme Sheridan @The2ndDoctor has embedded a YouTube video of it in his post, Gallifrey One on the Craig Ferguson Show. (Watch it while you can in case it is pulled off of YouTube).

DVR Alert: Alex Kingston is Scheduled for Thursday's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

River Song

Once again, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (on CBS in the US) will be having a Doctor Who related guest this Thursday (6th January 2011). This time it is Alex Kingston (River Song). Although she is not listed (at the time of this writing) in the upcoming shows for free tickets (they are actually recording two shows on Thursday according to their website, one at 3pm with actor Gary Sinise and one at 4:15pm with actress Mila Kunis - the latter being sold out), it was announced that "River Song" would be on Thursday's show via Craig Ferguson's Twitter feed. In addition, the Doctor Who musical opening number ("cold open") which could not be aired last November has finally been cleared for this show.

I wouldn't be too concerned about her absence on the website, as with the last time when Matt Smith was scheduled to appear on the show (16th November 2010), he was not showing up on the site for the longest time. Perhaps this show was pre-recorded on another day? @CraigyFerg tweeted the following tweet on Monday:

The Horrors of Job Hunting: with Kevin and Randy - A TV Pilot by Joe Corallo

Daphne Ashbrook and Joe Corallo

If you are a long time listener of Doctor Who: Podshock, you may recall segments by Joe Corallo ( @JoeCorallo ) some years ago. He mostly reviewed audio dramas such as the Cybermen story, Spare Parts by Big Finish. You may have met him at our recent 25th Anniversary Event for the Gallifreyan Embassy last month (see photo to left of him with Daphne Ashbrook).

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!

Matt Smith to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

As promised on Doctor Who: Podshock, we can now confirm that Matt Smith is scheduled to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on the same night as the next 25th Anniversary Event for the Gallifreyan Embassy, Tuesday the 16th of November 2010.

He is there for the 3:30 pm (PST) recording of the show in Los Angeles, CA. Which also means he won't be able to attend our event that evening on here the East coast.

There has been a good deal of confusion leading up this late night talk show appearance. As recently as last Thursday, the office of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was sending out emails indicating that Matt Smith would not be appearing, meanwhile, that same day Craig Ferguson's Twitter account @CraigyFerg was tweeting that Matt Smith is to appear that night. In addition, there will be a Dalek there as well (which was tweeted the following day)!

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.
