The Doctor Hits the Big Time

I had a bit of a squeeing moment when I saw this picture of Matt Smith in what I assume is part of his Post Ponds outfit (which I LOVE!) holding an Ipad displaying his cover on Entertainment Weekly (covered in my last blog post).  There's not much more I can say other than I am proud to have been into the reincarnation of Doctor Who since it came back in 2005 - a hearty Congratulations and Thank You to all of the Doctor Who team both past and present.  

And in a totally geeky move, I fired off an e-mail to Entertainment Weeky for saying - on the cover - that Matt Smith plays Doctor Who - I hate that! (LOL)  Hopefully you will all get your copy this week - both here in America (I got mine on Friday) and in Great Britain at the local news agent (gottta love how the Brits refer to the guy hanging out in a newspaper stand) on 3rd August - if you aren't run over by tourists running to the next Olympic Venue :-)

The Doctor Taking Over America

This is a report full of all kinds of news!

Some of you may already know this but we now have the titles of three more of the the Season 7 episodes to go along with "Asylum of the Daleks" and they are "A Town Called Mercy", "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" (I can't possibly think of what the inspiration for that title was), and "Cubed".

I guess having set several stories here in the United States ("Dalek", "Daleks in Manhattan", "The Impossible Astronaut" and the 5th episode of the upcoming season - which was actually filmed, in part, in New York City) it's only natural that The Doctor and his crew has caught the eye of the American media, in the form of the cover of this week's upcoming Entertainment Weekly.  The article has to do with all kinds of shows that have cult followings of fans who are totally dedicated to their favorites and Doctor Who is featured with the likes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, The X Files and Battlestar Galactica to name a few.  This will be available in the US this Friday, July 27th and in the UK on Wednesday, August 1st and is available here

Last but not least we over here in America will be treated to 4 documentaries related to Doctor Who in the weeks running up to the presumed premier at the end of August.  Every Saturday in the Doctor's usual 9:00pm time slot, on consecutive Saturdays, we'll have The Science of Doctor Who on August 4th, The Women of Doctor Who on August 11th, The TimeyWhimey of Doctor Who on August 18th  and The Destinations of Doctor Who on August 25th.

Doctor Who at Comic Con

The annual geek fest known as Comic-Con is once again upon us and the people of San Diego, CA and there has been no shortage of stars abounding from just about every show and upcoming movie you can think of.

Not to be left out Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill (in his 1st visit) are in attendance and have dropped in for a couple of sessions of interviews - one with a past member of the Tardis crew and one a panel sponsired by Nerd Machine - here they are for your viewing pleasure (BEWARE THE BOWLER!).

If you'd like to view them slightly larger - the links to You Tube will follow.
