If you only watched ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ and ‘The Day of the Doctor’ anniversary special as part of your 50th anniversary of Doctor Who celebrations, then you're missing out. ‘The Five(ish) Doctors’ is thirty minutes of fun and delight spearheaded by Peter Davison which chronicles some of the past actors who played the Doctor in their efforts in being included in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. It’s a real treat for long time fans, that also offers up some delights for new fans. The video is embedded below.
Wow! We weren't expecting it unit this weekend, but surprise, it's here now! It's the first of many surprises in this new mini-episode "prequel' to Doctor Who: 'The Day of the Doctor' entitled, 'The Night of the Doctor.' Enjoy!
By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here).
In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.
What did you think of their farewell?
Traditionally at this time of the year, it is common to look back at the past year before leaping forward into the new year. We'll do one better… actually forty seven better by looking back at the past 48 years of Doctor Who in this timeline infographic. So before you ring in the new year, look back at the past years of your favourite Time Lord in this in-depth overview of the Doctor's adventures through the years on television along with his companions and iconic foes.

In this Extra Edition of Doctor Who: Podshock we include our interview and Q&A with Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) from last month's 25th anniversary event for the Gallifreyan Embassy.
As we previously announced, the Doctor Who 1996 Movie will finally be released as a region 1 DVD in North America. It has long been available on region 2 (I had my copy for some time now), it has been tied up in release rights issues between the studios involved (BBC, Fox, Universal) for a region 1 DVD release since the movie first aired.
We were pleased to report that it would finally be coming to region 1 with the recent revisiting of the DVD (a new re-release edition). Up until now, we didn't have a release date other than 2011 for this 8th Doctor adventure starring Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook. Now according to tvshowsondvd.com, BBC and Warner Home Video have announced that it will be released on February 8th as a 2-disc set titled, 'Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition.'
It coincides with the release of another 2-disc set 3rd Doctor story, 'The Mutants' starring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and Katy Manning as Jo Grant on DVD.

It seems that not only 8th Doctor wants a costume change, Matt Smith (the 11th Doctor) is reported stating that he would like some changes in his costume. Specifically, a warmer coat, perhaps in addition to his tweed jacket.
As for a hat, he said he wanted a hat back in April when he was in New York for the premiere of the 2010 series of Doctor Who. So this comes as no surprise. We already know that fezzes are cool.
