If you want to be one of the first people on the planet to see the season opener to series 6 of Doctor Who then you need to be at the Village East Cinema in Manhattan at 7pm on Monday the 11th of April (this coming Monday!)
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Steven Moffat, aaaaaaannnnddd Alex Kingston! The panel will be moderated by Chris Hardwick otherwise known as @nerdist and will be recording for the Nerdist Podcast. The tickets are be warened FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!
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).
According to the Barnes & Noble website, "You will need a wristband to join the signing line for this event. Wristbands will be distributed starting at 9AM on Friday, April 8 with the purchase of the Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series boxed Set. Please call store for additional details."
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.
Red Nose Day 2011 - Doctor Who is back with a vengeance as the Doctor (Matt Smith) provides some cosmic relief. The wonderful Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is usually a handful on her own but in this special episode she confronts herself, literally.

If you took part in our live show or if you listen to Doctor Who: Podshock 232, you will know at the time of our live recording (5pm EST 26 December 2010) that the latest Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol still had not shown up on iTunes to purchase or rent.
Since that time, it is now available in the US iTunes store: A Christmas Carol - Doctor Who, The Matt Smith Specials
This will bring a tear to your eye, one way or another.
As previously reported, there is a new Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time. It is now in the Apple App Store as of today. There are two versions, one is for the iPhone and iPod touch, and an HD version for the iPad. Unfortunately, it is not a universal app, so you can either get the iPhone/iPod touch version and upscale it for the iPad, or alternatively get the HD version specifically for the iPad.
The prices in the US App store are currently
$3.99 and $4.99 NOW ONLY 99¢ each.

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.
The BBC Press Office released more information about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special for 2010, titled, A Christmas Carol. The special will be transmitted on the BBC and BBC America on Christmas Day.
