A Pond Farewell and a New Home for the Holidays [Infographic]

By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here). 

In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.

What did you think of their farewell? 

Doctor Who Timeline 1963-2011 [INFOGRAPHIC]

DW Timeline

Traditionally at this time of the year, it is common to look back at the past year before leaping forward into the new year. We'll do one better… actually forty seven better by looking back at the past 48 years of Doctor Who in this timeline infographic. So before you ring in the new year, look back at the past years of your favourite Time Lord in this in-depth overview of the Doctor's adventures through the years on television along with his companions and iconic foes.

David Tennant Engaged to Georgia Moffett? [RUMOUR]

tumblr_le06p99YJB1qz4uono1_100.jpg

I hate relaying this kind of stuff reported in The Sun from an unnamed "source."

To quote the source in The Sun, "They (David Tennant and Georgia Moffett) are besotted with each other and can't wait to tie the knot." It doesn't exactly say they are engaged though. I would file it under rumour for now until there's some sort of official confirmation.

If it is true, we wish them all the best. Georiga Moffett had just turned 26 this past Christmas (Happy Birthday, Georgia Moffett). We interviewed her last year at Gallifrey 21 in Doctor Who: Podshock 187.

The following is from the article that ran in The Sun:

My All-Nighter with Tara and David Tennant

After showering and cutting my hair (and worrying if I had cut it too short), I was pretty much set for another all-nighter editing Doctor Who: Podshock 224. Then to my surprise, I received an invite via Twitter from (DWP Correspondent) Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara to join her and others to listen to David Tennant on Absolute Radio in the UK. Tara said they were all "dancing." This must had been around 1:30 AM (EDT).

David Tennant on Absolute Radio

Ok, I could do that. I hadn't heard David Tennant interviewed since his returning to the UK after working here in the States. I figured I would pop over to the live streaming audio of the radio station with the simultaneous webcam view (when it wasn't failing) and see what David Tennant had to say in what I assumed would be a quick interview.

Little did I know once I got there, there was no Mr. Tennant to be found. One of the webcams had a view of an empty chair. So I assumed since they had been dancing before, I must had just missed his interview. I was about to say, "Oh well" and get back to work when I was informed that he had yet to come on. That they were still waiting for him.

A Regeneration at 10 Downing Street? (video)

This for some reason did not get as much news coverage as one would had thought. From all indications, there was a regeneration at 10 Downing Street right in the middle of an interview being recorded.

This comes on the heels of another award granted to Doctor Who, this time a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) for last year's Doctor Who special, The Waters of Mars(Amazon US link).

Out of the handful of Doctor Who specials transmitted last year, I enjoyed Waters most.

Paul Cornell was at the Hugo Awards ceremony presenting an award.

Congratulations all around!
