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.
As it plays in Germany, here's the official "The Impossible Astronaut" prequel.
Here's a YouTube copy:
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.
As previously reported, the Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time debuted in the Apple App Store last December. 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 had been $3.99 and $4.99 respectively, but are NOW ONLY 99¢ each. So if you have been holding off purchasing this game for the iOS platform, now is the time (that includes myself). At this time, I don't know if this price reduction only pertains to the US iTunes App Store or if it is worldwide. Also I do not know if this is a permanent price reduction or a limited time sale.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 239
Running Time: 1:21:25
Coverage of the Doctor Who: Podshock Meet & Greet at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel on the eve of Gallifrey One's Catch 22: Islands of Mystery. Plus the passing of Nicholas Courtney and the 2011 series start date.
David Walliams announced on BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show that he is to have a part in Doctor Who in the upcoming series. All that he's willing to reveal is that he's an alien and shooting starts soon. David is better known for his character comedies "Little Britain" and most recently "Come Fly with Me" which was being shot at Stansted Airport in September as I was visiting the UK. In which he stars with comedy partner Mat Lucas. David is also know to Who fans from sketches he did with Mark Gattis for Comic Relief (UK) in 1999, which ended up as extras in "The Beginnings" boxed set and is well worth a watch. The YouTube clip is below for your perusal.
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:
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
