We are a week out from the launch of the new 2011 series of Doctor Who. I don't where the time goes. It's here again. Being that the next Sunday after next Saturday's premiere is a holiday, the first live over-the-net show reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock will be on the following Sunday, May 1st. We may or may not be using Talkshoe again. I am exploring other options if anyone has any to offer. Stay tuned here for forthcoming details.
But before next Saturday comes, this Saturday (April 16, 2011), or for some already, today, I will be speaking on a panel at I-CON 30 from 3pm to 4pm (EDT) (in room 111 in the Javits Lecture Hall at SUNY, Stony Brook, NY). The panel is titled, '21st Century Doctor Who.' Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock will also be on the panel. The panel is being organized by Docking Bay 516 for I-CON. So if you are attending I-CON this year, be sure to attend this panel.
In the meantime, the latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver is available. Along with the usual Doctor Who related news, it features a 'live' interview with Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho while he was in line for the special premiere showing of the first two episodes of the new series in NYC which took place on Monday, April 11th.
Speaking of The Sonic Newsdriver, the companion app for the podcast is already available in the Apple iTunes App Store for iOS devices (App Store link) and on AppBrain for Android devices, it is now also in the Amazon Appstore for Android devices. See details here.
Here is Sarah Douglas talking about her role in the Doctor Who Adventure Game as the "blob-like entity" / Professor Meadows in this short video. You may recall we broke the story of Sarah's role in Doctor Who when we interviewed her earlier this year at I-CON. If you didn't catch it, it was Doctor Who: Podshock 189. At that time she and we were unsure of exactly what her role was going to be, only that it was for an interactive animated story. We had assumed it may have been another BBC "Red Button" interactive Doctor Who episode before learning of the new Doctor Who Adventure Game series.
On a personal note, it was a real delight spending time with Sarah this past spring. We had her on our show when she during the early stage of this video game project, we would love to have back to speak more on it sometime in the future.

Colin had burst onto the Doctor Who scene taking over the lead role after Peter Davison stepped down in 1984 as the colourful and bold 6th Doctor. Although not his first association with Doctor Who, he had played Commander Maxil in the 5th Doctor story, Arc of Infinity. Blake's 7 fans will also know him as 'Bayban the Butcher' - a guest role he had in the series.
