Interesting that this was picked up by Deadline Hollywood, a pretty hardcore Industry blog:
We have become mainstream! Tara, if anyone can find out where they're shooting, it's you. YOU GO, GIRL!
Last month Graeme Sheridan @The2ndDoctor reported on the new Doctor Who games coming for the Nintendo Wii and DS game systems. We also spoke about it in Doctor Who: Podshock 220. Now news has broken that Blue Ocean will be releasing a new Nintendo Wii remote controller device as well as a stylus and slipcases for the DS based on the 11th Doctor's sonic screwdriver.
Doctor Who has won Best Family Drama by the TV Choice Awards 2010. Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Steven Moffat (Lead Writer and Executive Producer) were there in person at the ceremony Monday evening hosted by Alexander Armstrong (voice of "Mr. Smith" on The Sarah Jane Adventures).
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!

We had the pleasure of meeting Karen Gillan (Amy Pond in Doctor Who) this past April (2010) covering the event for Doctor Who: Podshock. Although we were there chiefly to record audio and shot still photos, we did manage to capture some short video of the red carpet interviews (thanks to the iPhone 3GS). This is one.
This is Karen Gillan at the US premiere of Doctor Who (the 1st Matt Smith series) at the Paley Center for Media in NYC speaking of going from her first role in Doctor Who (The Fires of Pompeii) to a full time companion.
