Richard E. Grant has been cast in the upcoming 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special. The news came from a tweet from Doctor Who Magazine today. It's interesting to see an official-unofficial past Doctor actor return to the series. You may recall that Richard E. Grant was the original 9th Doctor in the Scream of the Shalka, a story written by Paul Cornell. This animated adventure was produced prior to the television series being relaunched in 2005. We reviewed Scream of the Shalka not too long ago in Doctor Who: Podshock 267. In it, we discussed Richard E. Grant's portrayal of the Doctor and how Scream was the forerunner of Rose.
Both BBC and BBC America have made the new promo trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who series available (2012). On the BBC website, it is not restricted to the UK only either. Enjoy!

This is what has become an annual posting here on the 18th of June each year… The Gallifreyan Embassy anniversary. Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed. What can I say that I haven't already said in my previous anniversary postings? Yeah, I can't believe so much time has passed… I believe I had said it before. Perhaps these photos that I took last week on the Long Island Raid Road say it all. We have come a long way since 1985. I never thought then that I would see train posters referencing Doctor Who in them as these do for BBC America.

The first two series of Matt Smith as the Doctor has been recreated in a video simulating an old style (I would say 16-bit) video game running just over 4 minutes long. Be warned, there are spoilers pertaining to the these two series (if you are not up to date).
