East Village Cinema
We are a week out from the launch of the new 2011 series of Doctor Who. I don't where the time goes. It's here again. Being that the next Sunday after next Saturday's premiere is a holiday, the first live over-the-net show reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock will be on the following Sunday, May 1st. We may or may not be using Talkshoe again. I am exploring other options if anyone has any to offer. Stay tuned here for forthcoming details.
But before next Saturday comes, this Saturday (April 16, 2011), or for some already, today, I will be speaking on a panel at I-CON 30 from 3pm to 4pm (EDT) (in room 111 in the Javits Lecture Hall at SUNY, Stony Brook, NY). The panel is titled, '21st Century Doctor Who.' Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock will also be on the panel. The panel is being organized by Docking Bay 516 for I-CON. So if you are attending I-CON this year, be sure to attend this panel.
In the meantime, the latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver is available. Along with the usual Doctor Who related news, it features a 'live' interview with Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho while he was in line for the special premiere showing of the first two episodes of the new series in NYC which took place on Monday, April 11th.
Speaking of The Sonic Newsdriver, the companion app for the podcast is already available in the Apple iTunes App Store for iOS devices (App Store link) and on AppBrain for Android devices, it is now also in the Amazon Appstore for Android devices. See details here.
The cast of Doctor Who arrives at the East Village Cinema in New York City for the second year in a row now for a premiere screening of the start of the 2011 series. Among the cast are Matt Smtih, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, joined by Executive Producer and Lead Writer, Steven Moffat. If you watch closely in the background, you can spot Barnaby Edwards (of DWNY and blogger here on our site) as well.
For those of you like me who didn't/couldn't make it to the East Village Cinema yesterday then here's a few photo's of the cast posing for the camera. Hmmm I see a scarf in the background in one... Hmmm.
If you want to be one of the first people on the planet to see the season opener to series 6 of Doctor Who then you need to be at the Village East Cinema in Manhattan at 7pm on Monday the 11th of April (this coming Monday!)
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Steven Moffat, aaaaaaannnnddd Alex Kingston! The panel will be moderated by Chris Hardwick otherwise known as @nerdist and will be recording for the Nerdist Podcast. The tickets are be warened FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 193 EXTRA Edition
Running Time: 0:40:11
In this Doctor Who: Podshock Extra Edition we have more of our interviews of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan from the red carpet. We continue our coverage of the New York Doctor Who events including insights gained from the Q and A at the Paley Center such as the origins of the 11th Doctor saying "Geronimo," Steven Moffat's The Eleventh Hour script, which historical event would Matt and Karen most like to visit in a story, and more. Plus our "carcast" recorded immediately following the screening at the Paley Center where we give our initial take on the evening's events, meeting Murray Gold, etc.. In addition, Anthony Burdge is back reporting in wrapping up the East Village Cinema event.
