Doctor Who: Podshock will be once again be taking to the net this Sunday, 29 December 2013 for a live-over-the-net show reviewing the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Time of the Doctor.
We're back… and it's about time! We return with our live-over-the-net review series this time talking about the 2013 Christmas Special bidding farewell to Matt Smith as the Doctor and introducing Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.
Possible SPOILER if you haven't seen 'The Day of the Doctor' yet (is that even a possibility now?). John Hurt's 'War Doctor' regeneration scene extended just a bit more... See the video below.
Tiny Rebel Games LLC has released their Doctor Who title for iOS, Doctor Who: Legacy. It is available free on the iOS App Store (though the game is free, it does have in-game purchase options (i.e. you can purchase "time crystals")). The app is an universal app designed for both iPhone (and iPod touch) and iPad and it requires iOS 6 or later (therefore it will not work on the original iPad).
The following is their description of the game:
The BBC has confirmed that the upcoming 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special is titled, 'The Time of the Doctor.' So we have had 'The Name of the Doctor', 'The Night of the Doctor', 'The Day of the Doctor', and now 'The Time of the Doctor' all in row with only the mini episode titled, 'The Last Day' interrupting the pattern. There's a teaser promo video for it, albeit very short, that the BBC has released as well (see below). How many days until Christmas now?

If you only watched ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ and ‘The Day of the Doctor’ anniversary special as part of your 50th anniversary of Doctor Who celebrations, then you're missing out. ‘The Five(ish) Doctors’ is thirty minutes of fun and delight spearheaded by Peter Davison which chronicles some of the past actors who played the Doctor in their efforts in being included in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. It’s a real treat for long time fans, that also offers up some delights for new fans. The video is embedded below.
A collection of Doctor Who content is available under the umbrella of the '50th Anniversary Collection' on iTunes. According to the description it will include 'The Day of the Doctor' anniversary special and 'An Adventure in Space and Time' when they are released. Already there are 'Revisited' specials, the Proms, and more recently the mini-episode, 'The Last Day.' A season pass to all the content is $29.95, although you can purchase them individually and some are offered for free.

November 23rd of this year marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Sure there are specials on television honouring the event including Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor and the docu-drama, An Adventure in Time and Space, but aside from these, how do you plan to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who?
Will you be pulling out your favourites from your DVD/Blu-ray collection to watch (or downloading/streaming them from an online service)? Perhaps having a marathon of episodes? Maybe you're putting together a theme party to celebrate it with friends?
Or perhaps you're not doing anything out of the ordinary, which is fine, but what does 50 years of Doctor Who mean to you?
