Paul Cornell's New Pulse Pilot - An Exciting New Horror Drama

Paul CornellWriter of some of the best Doctor Who stories in recent years and long time friend of Doctor Who: Podshock, Paul Cornell has written a pilot for a possible new series on BBC3, Pulse.

The 60-minute pilot scheduled for this spring on BBC3 is a medical horror drama set in one of the UK's top teaching hospitals, St Timothy's. It is home of the country's most promising trainee doctors, but beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences.

It stars Claire Foy as Hannah Carter whose mother was a consultant at the hospital before she died suddenly a year prior. Taking a year off teetering on the edge with grief, she's back to resume her training. Hannah remains fragile, so when she starts glimpsing strange events in the hospital and unsettling behavior from her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick played by Stephen Campbell Moore, she's unsure what to believe.

Hannah puts her sanity on the line, ignoring the pleas around her to uncover the truth of the hospital.

Meet "Doctor Who" - Apple Podcast of the SoHo Store Event

Meet The FilmmakerOn Tuesday, 13 April 2010, Doctor Who: Podshock went to the Apple SoHo store to cover the Doctor Who Q&A event there in New York City. Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Steven Moffat were there in person taking questions from the audience.

Originally we were going to record a show there until we learned that Apple themselves were going to release it as a podcast in their Meet the Filmmaker series. It is available now (link below), see the episode titled "Meet "Doctor Who"" released on 4/16/2010 on the feed.

You may hear a familiar voice in it aside from Matt, Karen, and Steven.
