Vampires over night Figures

Unofficial overnight figures for The Vampires of Venice was watched by 6.2 million viewers with a share of 30.6% of the audience.
5.90 million watched on BBC One, where it was again the most watched programme of the evening, with an additional 0.24 million watching on BBC HD.
The rating was down slightly on the previous week, most probably due to the earlier time slot. On ITV1, Funniest Ever You've Been Framed! had 4.4 million watching.

This is now showing a few parallels with Doctor Who of old, that constantly shifting the times of transmission will mean that viewing figures will drop.

This Introduction by Arthur is not any where near as Spoilery as Previous Introductions, in fact it's done quite well.

On The Examination Table About Doctor Who, GE, and Doctor Who: Podshock

The following is a reposted entry from my blog on the Art Trap Productions website.

On The Examination Table -

A couple months ago, the Examiner posted a video interview of Doctor Who: Podshock consisting of Ken Deep, James Naughton, and myself conducted by Chris McKeon. This time, I am on the examination table so to speak in this latest interview with examiner.com once again by Chris McKeon. In it, I speak about Doctor Who, Doctor Who: Podshock, the Gallifreyan Embassy, and some of our other shows. This interview was conducted about two weeks prior (mid-March) of the BBC premiering the first Matt Smith as The Doctor story of new series of Doctor Who, The Eleventh Hour.

You can find the interview here on examiner.com: Louis Trapani of Doctor Who Podshock visits the Examiner again

Adverts in The Closing Moments of Doctor Who

In the closing moments of Saturday's Doctor Who episode "The TIme of Angels" as the Doctor was giving his, "The one thing you never put in a trap" speech.  An advert for the next programme, featuring a cartoon of Graham Norton apeared distracting many from the action on screen, and anoying them enough to complain. The BBC promptly apolgised after in thier own words said "thousands of complaints" had been recieved.

Next Jukebox Jury

This though was not the first time adverts for following shows had blended in at the closing moments of Doctor Who. In 2005 it was Graham Norton who also came up. This is not a new problem as the screen grab from the closing moments of episode 1 of Daleks back in 1963 shows the BBC have been often guilty of this, blending in of adverts for the next programme.

The Second Doctor Dominates

I am a happy very man,

The BBFC have cleared extras for the DVD release of the Second Doctor story The Dominators.
This 1968 five-part story has been expected ever since an official promo for the story was leaked to YouTube at the end of last year. The story stars Patrick Troughton as the Doctor along with Frazer Hines as Jamie and Wendy Padbury as Zoe.

Extras Cleared:
