Today (June 18, 2011) was the 26th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. Today we also recorded a Doctor Who: Podshock episode live over the net reviewing the spring 2011 series of Doctor Who. In the show we briefly touched upon the anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy and we were privileged enough to have a long time member and now a Podshock Supporting Subscriber call into the show, Stuart Natelson to share some of his memories with the organization.

Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres on Starz this July 8th at 10pm e/p. Here is a special 5 minute special look video from Starz.
If you seen 'A Good Man Goes to War' and haven't seen the 'prequel' yet (perhaps to avoid possible spoilers), here it is below. If you haven't seen the episode yet, well the prologue video ('prequel') is below (no real spoilers are in it… depending on what you may consider a spoiler though).
This video has been in the making for some time now as I have seen various earlier incomplete versions of it over the last few years now I believe. Originally created as a mock trailer by OtaKing77077 (on YouTube) has expanded into a mini-episode. Because it was originally meant only as mock trailer, it lacks some narrative. It is done in the style of 1980's anime featuring 1970's Doctor Who mostly (it is a 3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee story). It features many original voice clips of various characters from the series as well as some original vocal work. Almost every iconic aspect of 1970s and some 1980s Doctor Who is depicted here except K9 perhaps.
For some reason the video had been pulled from YouTube, someone else had posted it again in the above.
The trailer is only 30 seconds, and contains spoilers. Click on the article if you are absolutely sure you want to see this.

Thanks to @24k for the heads up on this one.
The long wait is over if you have been waiting for The Rebel Flesh to appear on iTunes. This year, the new episodes have been appearing on iTunes within hours of it being broadcast of BBC America, as opposed to last year when it was usually a 24 hour wait. I even made a point of mentioning how fast they are appearing this year in Doctor Who: Podshock 247. So wouldn't you know that this week, they deliberately held back on it just to prove me wrong. Well, perhaps not deliberately. There was some issue though that had held it up.
It is now available now in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Although it had been listed on Amazon, there were reports that it was not downloading from them. Now that it is available via iTunes, we might assume that the download issue from Amazon has also been resolved.
Below are the links to fetch the episode from the respective provides:
The latest and to date, the longest (we believe) promo trailer for the new Torchwood: Miracle Day series on Starz coming this summer.
This video features Colin Baker narrating the history of the police box in the UK. The shape that the TARDIS has been stuck in since The Unearthly Chid premiered in 1963. This feature was originally transmitted in 1993, part of the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who celebration by the BBC.
Thanks to @tvkirby for bringing this video to my attention.
