Today is a celebration! Why? Today is the 10th anniversary of Rose, the episode that brought introduced us to Rose Tyler and brought back Doctor Who.
Happy 10th Anniversary, Rose Tyler
It had been sixteen years since Doctor Who the airing of a regular episode, and it had been nine years since Sylvester McCoy handed over control of the TARDIS to Paul McGann in the TV movie. On March 26, 2005, something magical happened. The BBC broadcast “Rose” to a UK viewership of 10.81 million. Today, on the episode’s 10th Anniversary, I take a look back on the regeneration of a phenomenon. (Information provided, in part, via Wikipedia.org.)

It's interesting seeing this interview now of Peter Capaldi on Craig Ferguson's late night chat show years before (from 2009) he was cast as The Doctor. Pay very close attention what Peter is wearing, a definite precursor to his Doctor's costume. Doctor Who doesn't come up in conversation (Peter was there promoting his then new movie, In the Loop, but Craig does bring up their past history together including 'dropping acid' and being part of a punk rock band (The Dreamboys). It's also the first time Peter is speaking to an American audience.

The “Troughton Is My Doctor” (Doctor Who News and Opinion) blog is featuring Doctor Who: Podshock in their Podcastrovalva series which to my understanding will focus on Doctor Who podcasts. This is the first entry in that series and it features Doctor Who: Podshock. Below is a segment from the article. For the full piece, visit the linked entry on their site below.
Podcastrovalva 1- Podshock | Doctor Who News and Opinion: "I started listening to Doctor Who podcasts during the storm-related hiatus of Podshock. However, since it has been back, it has been one I make sure to always listen to within a day or two of its release."
Emma Campbell-Jones made quite an impression on the Eighth Doctor and on Doctor Who fans as "Cass", the companion who almost was, in "Night of the Doctor".
This wasn't Emma's first encounter with the Doctor. She worked with Matt Smith and company in "The Wedding of River Song" as Dr. Kent. This beautiful and talented actress has made appearances on Red Dwarf, Silent Witness, and recently Law and Order: UK.
Emma Campbell-Jones is a star on the rise and now we'll get a chance to see why the Doctor was quite smitten with her!
