[Warning: Possible "spoilers" depending on your perspective.]
Here it is in case you haven't seen it yet or simply want to see it again, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary tribute video promoting 'The Day of the Doctor' episode coming on the 23rd of November.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 261

Our special panel discussion on the many possibilities of a Doctor Who theatrical movie. Recorded live at our November meet up with a stellar line up of panelists consisting of Graeme Sheridan, Dave Cooper, Victor 1st Mornington (Doctor Who Exposition & Katrina), Dave Lewis (TARDIS Newsroom & Paradox Island), Mike Rall (Who Island), and Saffia Widdershins (Prim Perfect Magazine), hosted by Louis Trapani.
It's that time again... Yep, news of a Doctor Who movie is abound again. Though this time the source is coming from Variety. Today the entertainment industry paper has broken the news that director David Yates is working with Jane Tranter of BBC Worldwide to bring the Time Lord to the big screen.
They are looking for writers for the project currently and their sights are not limited to just the UK.
Unfortunately, as I had always feared when this topic comes up as often as it does, the movie would not be in sync with the established television canon (then again, the television series itself is often not in sync with its own canon, but that's another story). Yates who has directed the last four Harry Potter films told Variety, "Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch."
Let's hope they don't rename the Doctor character to "Dr. Who" like the two feature films of the 1960s did starring Peter Cushing.
As of Saturday the 1st of October, Doctor Who Confidential is no more. After six years of coverage of the production of Doctor Who and background information, Confidential comes to an end, but it goes out with a bang, not with a whimper.
As followers of the British Schools Writing Competition should know, Confidential has been following the process and on Saturday it comes to a climax as the finished episode "Death is the Only Answer" is transmitted on Confidential.
So thank you Doctor Who Confidential for all your information, past and present. You shall be missed.
Once again there will be a Doctor Who Christmas special this year, a 60 minute drama produced by BBC Wales for BBC One. Set in the World War II era, it stars Matt Smith, Claire Skinner, Bill Bailey, Arabella Weir, and Alexander Armstrong. Production has already begun and is expected to continue through mid October.
The following is the press release for the upcoming special.
Cardiff, 21 September 2011: Production has started on the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special in which the Doctor (Matt Smith) finds himself in war-torn England embarking on a magical and mysterious adventure with a young widow and her two children.
A special Announcment from the BBC.
A special, one-off mini-episode of Doctor Who starring Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith will be shown on BBC Three this Autumn.
Doctor Who returns on Saturday, 27 August 2011 both on the BBC in the UK and BBC America in the USA. Executive Producer and Lead Writer for the series, Steven Moffat had the following to say about the resumption of the 2011 series in the latest from the BBC Press Office. Some may consider some of this to be a little "spoilery" — so be warned if you rather not know any details about the upcoming episodes for 2011.
What do you think of the Doctor's long coat in the promo image?

Starz has set the debut of Torchwood: Miracle Day, the latest Torchwood series, a spin-off of Doctor Who in the US for Friday, the 8th of July 2011. The BBC has yet to announce a date at this time.
