Often at the end of each year society looks back at those we have lost in the past year as a memorial. That is what this video does in regards to Doctor Who. This year being especially tough as we lost two performers that played major key companion roles in the series, but every passing is sad.
This video reports on BFI's screening of the two missing Doctor Who from Galaxy Four and The Underwater Menace recently discovered.
If the Prequel (see previous story) doesn't get your juices running for the Christmas special perhaps this interview with Matt will. Though if the Prequel doesn't start getting you excited I quote the 11th Doctor at this point "What's wrong with you?"
It's that time of the year again and we are just weeks away from a new Doctor Who Christmas special. Due to arrive on December 25th on the BBC and BBC America, the new special starring Matt Smith titled The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe was written by Steven Moffat. The following video is a "prequel" to the special.
There were some rumours that a finished version or almost finished version of Doctor Who Confidential exsisted. On last nights Viewer comments Programme "Points of View" these rumours were put to rest.
In case you missed it (as I had), here is the Doctor Who segment with Matt Smith from this year's Children in Need charity which also includes a 'trailer' preview of this year's Christmas special titled, The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe. The special is slated for Christmas Day in the UK.

The final touches are being made on the latest episode of Doctor Who: Podshock and should be released later today to supporting subscribers.

New York Comic Con is here again! October 13-16th at the Javits Center in New York. It's the largest east coast popular culture convention. Each year, it is growing in size and this year is no exception.
We have been attending each year and last year we recorded an episode of Doctor Who: Podshock live at the event to a standing room only audience with special guest Tony Lee of IDW Publishing (Doctor Who ongoing comic book series). You can listen to our live show from 2010 here: Doctor Who: Podshock 225. We would had done another live show this year at the event, but unfortunately, there isn't a Doctor Who guest there this year. Last year, Alien Entertainment brought over Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 TV movie). Word is this year they are bringing Ian McNeice (Churchill) to their booth. You may recall, we interviewed McNeice earlier this year live on stage at Gallifrey One (see Doctor Who: Podshock 240.
Here is a little taste of New York Comic Con in this video from last year (2010):
"Death is the Only Answer" is a mini episode produced as a result of a 'Script to Screen' competition geared to children (9 to 11 years old) which you may had seen documented on Doctor Who Confidential. The winning entry resulted in having their script produced into a mini episode which was shown in the finale episode of Doctor Who Confidential on Saturday. This is that mini episode.
The final series of Sarah Jane Adventures, features in the CBBC (Childrens BBC) trailer for the autumn start. So it is obviously was important enough to be included in the trailer, here's the trailer for your perusal.
I'm not sure how long this will remain watchable but enjoy while it does.
