This Week In Doctor Who - Section A
May 1, 2010 - Vol 13, Number 15
by Benjamin F. Elliott
The following is a reposted entry from my blog on the Art Trap Productions website.
A couple months ago, the Examiner posted a video interview of Doctor Who: Podshock consisting of Ken Deep, James Naughton, and myself conducted by Chris McKeon. This time, I am on the examination table so to speak in this latest interview with examiner.com once again by Chris McKeon. In it, I speak about Doctor Who, Doctor Who: Podshock, the Gallifreyan Embassy, and some of our other shows. This interview was conducted about two weeks prior (mid-March) of the BBC premiering the first Matt Smith as The Doctor story of new series of Doctor Who, The Eleventh Hour.

Doctor Who: The Time of Angels reviewed live over the net with live feedback (part 1 of 2). (If you haven't seen The Time of Angels yet, wait until you have before listening).
The postman delivered my 11th Doctor This morning so here's my review after a little play with it.
In the closing moments of Saturday's Doctor Who episode "The TIme of Angels" as the Doctor was giving his, "The one thing you never put in a trap" speech. An advert for the next programme, featuring a cartoon of Graham Norton apeared distracting many from the action on screen, and anoying them enough to complain. The BBC promptly apolgised after in thier own words said "thousands of complaints" had been recieved.
This though was not the first time adverts for following shows had blended in at the closing moments of Doctor Who. In 2005 it was Graham Norton who also came up. This is not a new problem as the screen grab from the closing moments of episode 1 of Daleks back in 1963 shows the BBC have been often guilty of this, blending in of adverts for the next programme.
I am a happy very man,
have cleared extras for the DVD release of the Second Doctor story The
This 1968 five-part story has been expected ever since an official promo for the story was leaked to YouTube at the end of last year. The story stars Patrick Troughton as the Doctor along with Frazer Hines as Jamie and Wendy Padbury as Zoe.
The Overnight Viewing figures are out for the Time of Angels. 6.8 Million watched and that's a combined BBC 1 and BBC HD number as the episode was simulcast. it also managed to grab 36% of the viewing Audience. As it looks there seems to be a steady number of viewers now, and the full figures will be known in 10n days.
Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who, Steven Moffat writes in the BBC TV Blog about The Return of the Weeping Angels (The Time of Angels). He says, "Good Doctor Who monsters have to come back - it's a rule. But my feeling is that you always have to bring back a monster and do something different with it."
Doctor Who: Podshock will be once again be taking to the net this Sunday (25 April 2010) for a live-over-the-net show reviewing the fourth episode of the new series, The Time of Angels.
He's back… and it's about time! We return with our live-over-the-net review series this time talking about the 4th episode of the new series starring Matt Smith as the Doctor premiering on BBC One this Saturday (coming to BBC America on May 8th). We will be reviewing The Time of Angels.
