Matt Smith to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

As promised on Doctor Who: Podshock, we can now confirm that Matt Smith is scheduled to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on the same night as the next 25th Anniversary Event for the Gallifreyan Embassy, Tuesday the 16th of November 2010.

He is there for the 3:30 pm (PST) recording of the show in Los Angeles, CA. Which also means he won't be able to attend our event that evening on here the East coast.

There has been a good deal of confusion leading up this late night talk show appearance. As recently as last Thursday, the office of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was sending out emails indicating that Matt Smith would not be appearing, meanwhile, that same day Craig Ferguson's Twitter account @CraigyFerg was tweeting that Matt Smith is to appear that night. In addition, there will be a Dalek there as well (which was tweeted the following day)!

Amy's (Radio) Choice - This Week's BBC Radio 4 Highlight

As I'm sure you know, BBC Radio 4, available to us here in America on the iPlayer free of charge (for the time being, at least), is a dependable source of terrific programming, particularly radio plays with great acting. Lots of the program(me)s have actors who have appeared in WHO. This week:

"Alone in Berlin," the story of German resistance in Berlin during WWII.  It stars Ron Cook, who was Mr. Magpie in "The Idiot's Lantern."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00vvwq0

Cook is a personal favorite of mine.  Look for him in the brilliant Mike Leigh film "Topsy-Turvy," as well as Paul McGann's "Hornblower" and "Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story," which we discussed in our review of "The Deadly Assassin" a few months ago.

BTW, found this cool site when I was looking for an image.  Great behind-the-scenes shots from the ep:
