Note - I am working on some major adjustments to the column. Pardon the dust. PBS stations are in the section marked This Week In Doctor Who PBS (the Sarah Jane listings are moving in with PBS next week - expect a name change). Today Sarah Jane and K-9 listings are together as This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs - next week that section becomes This Week In Doctor Who - Unlicensed, covering the K-9 listings and the long awaited return of the podcasting section. Torchwood listings are in Torchwood This Week.
The 11th Doctor Matt Smith made an appearance on the late night "Jonathan Ross" Show, Showing his new Sonic Screwdriver among things. He alaso tried to give a Discription of the interior of the Tardis with out giving anything away. See Clip below
Also Two clips are a vailable through DWO. The First is an Small exerpt from "The Vampires of Venice" and the other is the new Amy Pond Extended Trailer. follow the link for Details.

Alert to readers - I wrote a Torchwood section. I have sent the section to various places, and it is refusing to appear. I have not been able to debug the problem yet. So, for the second week in a row, the combined section goes out without Torchwood, in spite of my writing it. If I can get the Torchwood section to publish, it will be re-edited into this version. - 3/20/10.
UK viewers will get an exclusive preview of The Eleventh Hour
