Hand-Held "Corrected" Video of the 'End of Time' Promo

This promo for the End of Time presented at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend was shot by someone in the audience. The hand-held shaky video uploaded to YouTube by safia43 was then stabilized and cleaned up a bit by colonelbarker to the give you what you see here below. It features an element that would had been considered a spoiler before Comic Con, but now is not as the BBC has already announced it. Hopefully a better version of this promo will become available on the net soon, in the meantime, here below is probably the best version of it on YouTube (catch it while you can).

Officially Announced - Spoiler No More? (We'll let you judge)

A returning character and actor to the upcoming Doctor Who specials that until now has been regarded as a spoiler has been officially announced by the BBC. There's no avoiding it now. You will know for sure now as 'the cat is out of the bag' with this announcement. Having said that, we will still let you decide. Click the "Read more" below to find out.

Nothing Major Announced at SDCC So Far

No movie or other big news coming out of San Diego Comic Con 2009 relating to Doctor Who to report as of yet. Stay tuned to the upcoming Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 157 in which we have quasi-live coverage with our correspondent Tara Wheeler of the events taking place today at the SDCC Doctor Who panel with David Tennant, Russell T Davies, and Julie Gardner and more.

With that said, it is still a very exciting convention with the guests on hand. We will have plenty to report in the next Doctor Who: Podshock.

Renewal: New Doctor, New Companion, New Producer, New Costumes

Karen Gilan and Matt SmithThe BBC Press Office has posted a press release concerning the start of shooting the new Doctor Who series starring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor in Cardiff starting today through March 2010. Thirteen 45 minute episodes are being produced by BBC Wales for BBC One.

Below is the press release:

 

First Glimpse at the 11th Doctor Costume

Karen Gilan and Matt SmithBBC News has posted an article along with the first published photograph of Matt Smith in his new threads that he is wearing as the 11th Doctor. 

Shooting of the new series began today, Monday in Cardiff. In this photograph (see below for large photo) of Matt Smith along with new companion, Amy Pond played by Karen Gilan can be seen wearing dark rolled up trousers, tweed jacket and bow tie, along with black shoe-laced boots. 

The new series slated to debut in the spring 2010 features Matt Smith as the Doctor taking over the role after David Tennant (whose term as the Doctor comes to an end later of this year). It also features Steven Moffat as the new Executive Producer and Lead Writer for the series, taking over after Russell T Davies completes his term ending at the close of this year with the last of the specials.

Gallifrey 2010 - Blackjack 21 Changes Date One Week Later

Gallifrey One: Blackjack 21Gallifrey One has announced a date change for the Gallifrey 2010 convention in Los Angeles next year. Due to a hotel booking error, the annual premier North American Doctor Who convention has had to move the date of next year's Gallifrey One: Blackjack 21 back one week to February 26 - 28, 2010.

The Los Angeles Airport Marriott where the convention is being held had essentially accidentally double-booked another event in the same space. Gallifrey One agreed to move the event back a week and by doing so the hotel has reduced the cost of hotel rooms from $114 per night to $100 per night for not only the 2010 convention, but it is locked in for that price through 2013 now to $114 per night for 2010 and further down to $100 per night for 2011-2013. Thus saving money for not only 2010 convention goers, but for those attending for the next few years.

Russell T Davies In-Route to America; Torchwood Future Uncertain

UK News is reporting Russell T Davies is leaving for America. The article is proclaiming uncertainty over the Doctor Who spin-off shows he had spearheaded with his relocating to Hollywood, CA. Russell T Davies says in the article:

"I haven’t planned anything, all my furniture is now there and I’m just going to start writing."

"It will take years to get anything made out there. It’s going to be difficult, so new and so brilliant. I will learn from people and bring it back here one day. It’s a big adventure and a lot of fun."
