Here is the trailer for the upcoming 2011 series of Doctor Who. Currently it is viewable outside of the UK, but there is no guarantee how long that will remain the case.
Red Nose Day 2011 - Doctor Who is back with a vengeance as the Doctor (Matt Smith) provides some cosmic relief. The wonderful Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is usually a handful on her own but in this special episode she confronts herself, literally.

If you took part in our live show or if you listen to Doctor Who: Podshock 232, you will know at the time of our live recording (5pm EST 26 December 2010) that the latest Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol still had not shown up on iTunes to purchase or rent.
Since that time, it is now available in the US iTunes store: A Christmas Carol - Doctor Who, The Matt Smith Specials
This will bring a tear to your eye, one way or another.
As previously reported, there is a new Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time. It is now in the Apple App Store as of today. There are two versions, one is for the iPhone and iPod touch, and an HD version for the iPad. Unfortunately, it is not a universal app, so you can either get the iPhone/iPod touch version and upscale it for the iPad, or alternatively get the HD version specifically for the iPad.
The prices in the US App store are currently
$3.99 and $4.99 NOW ONLY 99¢ each.

Even though we are still a couple weeks away from the airing of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (coming to BBC (6pm) and BBC America (9pm) on the 25th of December), we already have a release date for the special on Blu-ray and DVD.
Just in time for Gallifrey 22, the special is slated for release on the 15th of February. So much for giving it as a Valentine's Day gift. Along with the special, the accompanying 'Doctor Who: Confidential' on it and 'Doctor Who at the Proms 2010' will be included as bonus material.
We can also assume that the special will be available on iTunes the day after it is shown on BBC America, so figure on it being there on Boxing Day.
Just in time for the holidays (depending on when your holiday falls), it is the "11th Doctor: Christmas Adventure Set 2010" available now on the Forbidden Planet website. It features the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond sporting her kiss-a-gram police uniform and a non-electronic TARDIS with front doors that open and judging from the photo, access to the phone as well. It is expected to be available on the 20th of December 2010. It sells for £26.99.
I can only assume this is being called a "Christmas Adventure set" solely due to the fact of when it is being released because to the best of my knowledge, Amy will not be wearing her police uniform in the upcoming Christmas special, A Christmas Carol. It would be more fitting to call it 'The Eleventh Hour' Adventure set… though technically the Doctor was still in his 10th Doctor hand-me-down raggedy clothes when Amy was in her kiss-a-gram police uniform. If you want 'The Raggedy Doctor' it is available in a two figure set. This two figure set is available for £11.99.
The BBC Press Office released more information about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special for 2010, titled, A Christmas Carol. The special will be transmitted on the BBC and BBC America on Christmas Day.
There are a bunch of articles I've been meaning to write since last week, unfortunately I have been fighting off a nasty bug I probably picked up at our anniversary event a week ago. And no, that would not be 'Bug' as in Pete's nickname who was there.
With that said, this may be old news, but only if you haven't seen it already. Below is a publicity photo for the upcoming 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol that the BBC released recently.

The last couple days, Doctor Who: Podshock Correspondent, Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara has been on the hunt for Matt Smith who is in the US currently shooting Doctor Who in Utah for the upcoming new 2011 series. Matt Smith also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Tuesday.
From this photo that Tara has posted to her Tumblr blog, it appears she has found what she was looking for today. Somehow I am not surprised. When Tara has a goal set in her sights, there's very little that can come between it and her. She hasn't checked in with us since as of yet and I haven't caught up with her Twitter feed yet, so I don't have the details just now, but the photo seems to have been posted about 2 hours ago.
This ones a bit obvious so...
"Waiting for this mysterious scientific advisor of yours to turn up?"
Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 228
Running Time: 1:43:01
Part 1 of our Interview with Paul Scoones @paul_scoones (responsible for Doctor Who DVD info text) by Ian Bisset @The6thDoctor , Amy Krell @amykrell joins us with her new segment, 'Amy's Choice', Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho interviews long time Gallifreyan Embassy member Tim Grogan @whoviangrande on Doctor Who fandom in the 1980s, feedback, news, and more.
As promised on Doctor Who: Podshock, we can now confirm that Matt Smith is scheduled to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on the same night as the next 25th Anniversary Event for the Gallifreyan Embassy, Tuesday the 16th of November 2010.
He is there for the 3:30 pm (PST) recording of the show in Los Angeles, CA. Which also means he won't be able to attend our event that evening on here the East coast.
There has been a good deal of confusion leading up this late night talk show appearance. As recently as last Thursday, the office of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was sending out emails indicating that Matt Smith would not be appearing, meanwhile, that same day Craig Ferguson's Twitter account @CraigyFerg was tweeting that Matt Smith is to appear that night. In addition, there will be a Dalek there as well (which was tweeted the following day)!
