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.
So this started off as a rumour on Friday, and according at least to BBC America is going to happen.
A collaboration between the BBC and BBC America sees a filming block taking part in the US, Utah to be a little more specific, according to press, the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River land in Utah, more than that I shall not reveal because it gets into major spoiler territory. Only I do have a BBC America clip for you.
The Seeds of Doom DVD release is one that is extra special for Doctor Who: Podshock. You will know why when you view the extras included in the release. Here is promo video for the upcoming Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor DVD title.

Watch the latest teaser 'trailer' video for series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures coming to the CBBC next week (11 October 2010). Along with Elisabeth Sladen and the regular cast members, you will see Matt Smith as the Doctor in it as well in this promo video.
This for some reason did not get as much news coverage as one would had thought. From all indications, there was a regeneration at 10 Downing Street right in the middle of an interview being recorded.

Watch a promo video for Doctor Who Live. It features Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor (note, Smith is not appearing in the live show himself, only via prerecorded video projected on screen presumably similar to what you see here). The other footage obviously comes from the recent Doctor Who Proms music event.
To go along with the reported start date for Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures (see Sarah Jane, The Doctor, and Jo Grant Return in October), there is a very short video preview for it as well:
Another Doctor Who related music video from Ed Stockham and features the music of the band, Chameleon Circuit, the same folks that brought you An Awful Lot of Running. I still prefer the latter, but this is interesting nonetheless.
Thanks to @AdricAntfarm for bringing it to my attention.
Watch the full session from the Edinburgh International Television Festival with Doctor Who Executive Producer and Lead Writer, Steven Moffat and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) from 29 August 2010 chaired by Richard Bacon.
Follow the link below and then click the right sidebar for Doctor Who: A Masterclass. Special thanks to @terrylightfoot for the heads up on it.
We had the pleasure of meeting Karen Gillan (Amy Pond in Doctor Who) this past April (2010) covering the event for Doctor Who: Podshock. Although we were there chiefly to record audio and shot still photos, we did manage to capture some short video of the red carpet interviews (thanks to the iPhone 3GS). This is one.
This is Karen Gillan at the US premiere of Doctor Who (the 1st Matt Smith series) at the Paley Center for Media in NYC speaking of going from her first role in Doctor Who (The Fires of Pompeii) to a full time companion.
Here is Sarah Douglas talking about her role in the Doctor Who Adventure Game as the "blob-like entity" / Professor Meadows in this short video. You may recall we broke the story of Sarah's role in Doctor Who when we interviewed her earlier this year at I-CON. If you didn't catch it, it was Doctor Who: Podshock 189. At that time she and we were unsure of exactly what her role was going to be, only that it was for an interactive animated story. We had assumed it may have been another BBC "Red Button" interactive Doctor Who episode before learning of the new Doctor Who Adventure Game series.
On a personal note, it was a real delight spending time with Sarah this past spring. We had her on our show when she during the early stage of this video game project, we would love to have back to speak more on it sometime in the future.
Below is a new general introduction video to The Doctor Who Experience on Second Life. It is the area we hold our seasonal Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Ups (we have one coming up next Saturday, the 21st of August 2010 by the way, see: Join Us in Celebrating 5 Years of Doctor Who: Podshock Wherever You Are! for more information). If you already attended our meet ups there or have seen the intro video Victor made specifically for our upcoming meet up (see: New Intro Video for Upcoming Doctor Who / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Up on Second Life), then this video may be old hat for you. If you are brand new to Second Life and The Doctor Who Experience, then this video can be helpful to you. Remember you can enjoy The Doctor Who Experience anytime you like, not just during our meet ups there.
Victor1st was kind enough to create an updated video introduction to our upcoming Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Up on Second Life on Saturday, the 21st of August. See details here: Join Us in Celebrating 5 Years of Doctor Who: Podshock Wherever You Are! We hope to see you there celebrating 5 years of Doctor Who: Podshock!
