Below is the trailer from the BBC for the Autumn winter series it has 3 Doctors (all new series Doctors at that) and the other drama Matt Smith worked on also gets a quick clip. The trailer is not region locked so enjoy. (Spoilers are minimal, showing mostly actors and nothing much else)
Watch a promo video for Doctor Who Live. It features Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor (note, Smith is not appearing in the live show himself, only via prerecorded video projected on screen presumably similar to what you see here). The other footage obviously comes from the recent Doctor Who Proms music event.
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.
According to various (unconfirmed) reports on the net, the new 4th series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be returning to the BBC and CBBC on Monday, 11 October 2010 (with part 1 of The Nightmare Man by Joseph Lidster).
It is unclear whether the new series is back to one episode a week or will it be similar to last year which transmitted two episodes a week. Remember, each story takes two half-hour episodes to tell in The Sarah Jane Adventures. The BBC had commissioned two new series (24 x 30-minutes episodes), this is the first of the two (12 episodes telling six stories). No details as of yet pertaining to this series outside of the UK.
Steven Moffat announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival that the next season of Doctor Who will be split. But not like we think of spilt, according to Steven,
There is another Doctor Who stage show in the works, but Trevor Martin won't be returning for the title role. The Press Association reports the following:
"Actor Nigel Planer - best known for his role as TV hippy Neil in The Young Ones - is to take centre stage in the new live-action Doctor Who tour.
The hit BBC One show is being adapted for the stage in a nine-city arena tour which will begin next month with Daleks and Cybermen among the evil creatures which will be brought to life.
Now Planer has been unveiled as the star who will act as the production's lynchpin, starring as a travelling showman Vorgensen.

One of our LA Correspondents (I can't say which just now) give me word early Monday morning of this article in the LA Times concerning the release of the Blu-ray and DVD of the latest series of Doctor Who (starring Matt Smith). We always suspected it would be November as that has been traditionally the release month of the series box sets in the past, just in time for the holiday shopping season. According to this article by from the LA Times, that date will be November 9, 2010.
In addition, they will include extra content shot for this release.

The Complete overnight Figures for the season closer of doctor who are 5.1 Million. 4.6 Million of those on BBC 1 and 0.5 Million on BBC HD. Doctor Who was the second highest rated show of the night with the football (soccer) world cup match USA against Ghana coming top with 5.7 million. Doctor Who even beat Wimbledon which was showing on BBC2 at the same time. Overall Doctor Who did really well all season when the constantly shifting Time-slots are taken into consideration, and hopefully this will prove to the BBC that they handle the show with more respect next year. In comparison to previous seasons of Doctor Who in the same time slot, it faires better than Patrick Troughtons final episode on The Wargames which had a Final figure of 5 Million viewers, at a time in British Television where there were only three channels, and not as it is today.
