Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 238 - A Conversation with Daphne Ashbrook on the 1996 Movie DVD Release in NA
"Look over there! On the other side of your galaxy, that's home."
Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 238
Running Time: 0:48:29
Daphne Ashbrook joins us for a conversation on the 1996 Doctor Who movie DVD release in North America as well as her new CD - Grace Notes (iTunes), plus Gallifrey One 2011 reminders, Doctor Who news and more.
Once again, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (on CBS in the US) will be having a Doctor Who related guest this Thursday (6th January 2011). This time it is Alex Kingston (River Song). Although she is not listed (at the time of this writing) in the upcoming shows for free tickets (they are actually recording two shows on Thursday according to their website, one at 3pm with actor Gary Sinise and one at 4:15pm with actress Mila Kunis - the latter being sold out), it was announced that "River Song" would be on Thursday's show via Craig Ferguson's Twitter feed. In addition, the Doctor Who musical opening number ("cold open") which could not be aired last November has finally been cleared for this show.
I wouldn't be too concerned about her absence on the website, as with the last time when Matt Smith was scheduled to appear on the show (16th November 2010), he was not showing up on the site for the longest time. Perhaps this show was pre-recorded on another day? @CraigyFerg tweeted the following tweet on Monday:
Finally, the HUGE hit of 1978 is available on iTunes!
Two songs from the above album:

A 2010 holiday edition of Doctor Who: Podshock featuring Matthew Waterhouse and an interview with Paul Slocum by Anthony S Burdge, and more.
If you watched The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a couple weeks ago with special guest, Matt Smith, you would know that they prepared a song that in the end they could not transmit on the show due to not having the clearances. That didn't stop Craig Ferguson from suggesting or hinting that someone should put it up on YouTube… Here's the "musical extravaganza that never made the show."
"Nonsense, what you need, Doctor, as Miss Shaw herself so often remarked, is someone to pass you your test tubes, and to tell you how brilliant you are."
Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 227
Running Time: 1:54:13

Further to a piece of E-mail Louis, Ken and James received in Doctor Who: Podshock 224, where the Author bemoaned having to pay the BBC licence fee. And we all know how James is a great champion for the BBC, well here's another.
Mitch Benn is well known in his own right as a Comical Singer Songwriter, and is part of the BBC Radio 4 "The Now Show!" with Steve Punt and High Dennis. Put everything (He could think of, including Blakes 7 and Tripods so that should keep ken happy, and yes Doctor Who does get a mention!) down in to one song. He himself would probably say it's not everything that the BBC has done or does but, for us Doctor Who fans the Show gets the most mentions in the song. Mitch Benn being another vocal fan.
The date has finally been released for the Doctor Who at the proms 2010 TV broadcast.
it is 6th September at 8:30pm on BBC 3.
