Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray and DVD Release Date

Doctor Who A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray

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.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol Promo Photo

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.

Planet of the Dead Blu-Ray Goes to Helen Lesser

Last month we stated we would give a brand new unopened copy of Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead in HD on Blu-ray to randomly selected Podshock Supporting Subscriber (Planet of the Dead Blu-Ray Going to a Supporting Subscriber). We promised we would announce the winner at our seasonal meet up on Second Life on the 20th of February (Pre-Gallifrey 21 Meet Up on Second Life). We did. The subscriber we randomly selected was Ken Okel. (Ken was not present at the meet up, but we stated that you need not be present for it).

After contacting Ken, we learned that he had just bought a copy of Planet of the Dead on BD, and offered us to give the disc to another subscriber that may need it. Fortunately, we had selected a runner up just in case something like this occurred. That person is Helen Lesser!

See You at Gallifrey

There's only one more week until Gallifrey 21, the annual premier Doctor Who convention of North America taking place in Los Angeles, CA. Once again, Doctor Who: Podshock will be there in force.

Doctor Who Podshock Meet and GreetWe are holding a Meet and Greet on the Thursday evening before the convention ("Gallifrey Eve," if you like) at the same hotel. It is at 10pm PST on the 25th of February. It is late enough to allow many of people flying in on Thursday to check into the hotel and get some dinner beforehand. The Meet and Greet is an informal (leave the tux at home) gathering where you will have a chance to come by and say hi, meet the Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, and regular contributors to the show. Learn more about our Meet and Greet here. If you plan on meeting up with us there, please RSVP here.

If you are a Podshock Supporting Subscriber and you are going to Gallifrey 21, please let us know if you haven't done so already. In addition to the Meet and Greet, we would like to plan something special to do with supporting subscribers at Gallifrey 21. What that might be, depends on how many will be able to join us. It is because of the support of supporting subscribers we are able to bring you the show and do these events. Please if you haven't done so yet, please consider supporting us by becoming a Podshock Supporting Subscriber. It doesn't cost much and it means so much to us.
