A couple other shows to check out while you are waiting for the next Doctor Who: Podshock episode to arrive. (I was trying to get an episode of DWP out tonight, but lack of sleep and it being Christmas Eve now may not make it possible).
The latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver has been released with select Doctor Who news delivered sonically to you. Last week, Dave Cooper @daveac joined me on the latest episode of Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi in which we discuss and review the most recent series of The Sarah Jane Adventures (series 4).

For all you lucky UK bound license fee paying Doctor Who fans. The fourth Doctor Who Adventures game "Shadows of the Vashta Nerada" has just gone live on the BBC official Doctor Who website.
The official blurb reads as such, "So you've learnt to fly the TARDIS and defeat the Cybermen and Daleks. But how will you fare against the fearsome Vashta Nerada? In an underwater base. While being attacked by alien sea monsters. Do you think you're ready?
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.
Coming soon to the the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time. Take a look at a demo of it being played on an iPad.
If you enjoyed our discussion on the ins and outs of building your own TARDIS (Police Box) in Doctor Who: Podshock 230 with special guests, the crew from The Happiness Patrol podcast, check out the latest episode of their podcast (The Happiness Patrol 47) in which I was invited on to talk about another Doctor Who icon, scarves!
Read my recent blog entry on ATP about it:
For what feels like for the longest time, we have been trying to get Lewis Bailey to join us on an episode Doctor Who: Podshock. Lewis does a podcast called The Happiness Patrol @TheHPatrol along with Dale Who @FishCustard2010 , Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara (who you may also know as a Corespondent for Doctor Who: Podshock), and Lela Sandstrom @LelaSandstrom, due to scheduling reasons it never worked out. He has been also trying to get me on The Happiness Patrol as well for a while and for the same reason, it hadn't worked. Although we had Lewis on an episode in a recorded segment at the Doctor Who: Podshock 5th Anniversary Event we held last August as well on an episode from Gallifrey 21 last February in Los Angeles at our Meet & Greet Event there, this is the first time we have him on our show in a studio setting for Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 230 along with Dale, Tara, and Lela. Not only is The Happiness Patrol in the latest episode of DWP, but I am in the latest episode of The Happiness Patrol as well!
"Oh, I see you've been doing the TARDIS up a bit. Hmm, I don't like it."

This is like someone getting peanut butter in my chocolate, or something like that (actually, I am not too keen mixing the two). This video marries two of my favourite pastimes, Star Wars and Doctor Who. It doesn't make much sense, but it is fun and interesting to look at, that much is certain. Ha! You have to love Amy Pond in it. Outstanding production values for a parody project like this… Thanks to @steven3x for the heads up on it.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 229 EXTRA Edition
Running Time: 1:15:48
In this Extra Edition of Doctor Who: Podshock we include our interview and Q&A with Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) from last month's 25th anniversary event for the Gallifreyan Embassy.
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.
If you watched The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a couple weeks ago with special guest, Matt Smith, you would know that they prepared a song that in the end they could not transmit on the show due to not having the clearances. That didn't stop Craig Ferguson from suggesting or hinting that someone should put it up on YouTube… Here's the "musical extravaganza that never made the show."
