Hi everyone… the latest episode of our podcast is up. We discuss A Good Man Goes to War.
I hope everyone enjoys it.
It has been a bit of a roller-coaster for Doctor Who fans lately. Yeah …. Matt Smith will be back for 14 new episodes … Most of which will not air next year ? … Booo
So what is exactly going on? At the moment only the BBC knows, and they are not telling just yet. What we know for sure is some of the new episodes will air in 2012. How many has yet to be announced. It may be a repeat of the “specials” season, as was done toward the end of the 10th Doctor, or it may be two seasons of 7 episodes each.
Time will tell, it usually does. As this one article suggests, the reason may just come down to the economy. If that is so, could we get a full season each year if the BBC held a pledge drive similar to the PBS stations showing Doctor Who in the ’70s and ’80′s?
With all the excitement of the mid season cliffhanger, some news has not gotten the focus that it should. First, it has been announced that Matt Smith will be The Doctor through next series. He will be The Doctor through Series 7 in 2012!
Second, Eliza Dushku will star in a Torchwood spinoff series, Torchwood Web of Lies. The web series will be made up of 10 episodes, each three minutes long, with the first installment launching before Miracle Day premieres and the others going online after each subsequent episode airs.
So…I finally remembered that I hadn’t done an official post about Article 16. Oops. Sorry. Well…it’s up. You can get it here even.
Now, on the subject of Article 17. We’re going to being both halves of the two-parter as one podcast. BUT, as there is that little thing called Memorial Day Weekend here in the US of A, apparently we won’t be getting part two until one week after the UK. (You may now grumble. I’ll wait. …All done? Ok. Moving on.) As a result, you may expect Article 17 sometime in the week after 4 June.
Do not despair, however, as we have a little something to tide you over.
Okay, just when you thought you had your 11th Doctor’s costume all set, they went and changed his coat for series 6. Fear not though, because AbbyShot Clothiers, has been given the official BBC license to replicate the current coat.
Please note that this coat comes with the leather elbow patches and as most of us know those patches have come and gone and come back again this series. Maybe they will offer a special version where the elbow patches are attached via Velcro?
