The cast of Doctor Who arrives at the East Village Cinema in New York City for the second year in a row now for a premiere screening of the start of the 2011 series. Among the cast are Matt Smtih, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, joined by Executive Producer and Lead Writer, Steven Moffat. If you watch closely in the background, you can spot Barnaby Edwards (of DWNY and blogger here on our site) as well.
For those of you like me who didn't/couldn't make it to the East Village Cinema yesterday then here's a few photo's of the cast posing for the camera. Hmmm I see a scarf in the background in one... Hmmm.
If you like Rebecca Black's "Friday" song, you're gonna love this too… (everyone else… well, be warned).

As I mentioned in the title there is a minor spoiler, as another new clip from The Impossible Astronaut/ Day of the Moon is shown between interview takes. For those who don't mind it's a great little interview with both Matt and Karen.
Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill will be on hand at the Barnes & Noble located at 555 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY at 12 noon this Friday, April 8, 2011 signing copies of the DVD box set of Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series (season 31).

One can only assume this would apply to the Blu-ray set as well, but best to call the store to confirm at 212-697-3048.
Here is the trailer for the upcoming 2011 series of Doctor Who. Currently it is viewable outside of the UK, but there is no guarantee how long that will remain the case.
This will bring a tear to your eye, one way or another.
Even though we are still a couple weeks away from the airing of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (coming to BBC (6pm) and BBC America (9pm) on the 25th of December), we already have a release date for the special on Blu-ray and DVD.
Just in time for Gallifrey 22, the special is slated for release on the 15th of February. So much for giving it as a Valentine's Day gift. Along with the special, the accompanying 'Doctor Who: Confidential' on it and 'Doctor Who at the Proms 2010' will be included as bonus material.
We can also assume that the special will be available on iTunes the day after it is shown on BBC America, so figure on it being there on Boxing Day.
Just 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.
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.
