Finally after a long wait the winner of the Blue Peter competition to design a TARDIS console gets her prize.
Items are again up for auction, the picture above is the one I want but have no money for. It's the Rehearsal script for Episode seven from the War Games. It's not the only very interesting piece either, a Original Tardis Model, THe Mona Lisa from "City of Death" and even The Seventh Doctors Tardis Key.
The links follow after the break.
Sam Hodges the Head of Communications confirmed that Series 7 of Doctor Who has been comissioned, with Matt Smith returning as the Doctor.
Later in the day Steven Moffat also confirmed it via Twitter with the following statement.
"14 eps + Matt DEFINITELY. I've got a plan and I'm NOT TELLING YOU WHAT IT IS.
Now hush or River shoots you with her Spoiler Gun."
The Original Voice of the Daleks Roy Skelton has passed away at the age of 79 after suffering a Stroke.
He was also know for providing the voices to the British ITV kids Programme "Rainbow" where his voice talents were used for the Puppets Zippy and George.
A short Bio follows taken from "The Manchester Evening News"
Even though Pt.1 of this series has not concluded there is a rather disturbing Trailer for Pt.2 of the season. Click for the full article to view the Trailer. *Possible Spoilers*
This video has been in the making for some time now as I have seen various earlier incomplete versions of it over the last few years now I believe. Originally created as a mock trailer by OtaKing77077 (on YouTube) has expanded into a mini-episode. Because it was originally meant only as mock trailer, it lacks some narrative. It is done in the style of 1980's anime featuring 1970's Doctor Who mostly (it is a 3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee story). It features many original voice clips of various characters from the series as well as some original vocal work. Almost every iconic aspect of 1970s and some 1980s Doctor Who is depicted here except K9 perhaps.
For some reason the video had been pulled from YouTube, someone else had posted it again in the above.
This time around it is my absolute pleasure to announce something classic series related. The DVD release of 'Reign of Terror' will have missing episodes 4 & 5 animated, in a 'Invasion' similar style.
There's no real spoilers at all just a nice Intorduction from the Director.
The trailer is only 30 seconds, and contains spoilers. Click on the article if you are absolutely sure you want to see this.
The long wait is over if you have been waiting for The Rebel Flesh to appear on iTunes. This year, the new episodes have been appearing on iTunes within hours of it being broadcast of BBC America, as opposed to last year when it was usually a 24 hour wait. I even made a point of mentioning how fast they are appearing this year in Doctor Who: Podshock 247. So wouldn't you know that this week, they deliberately held back on it just to prove me wrong. Well, perhaps not deliberately. There was some issue though that had held it up.
It is now available now in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Although it had been listed on Amazon, there were reports that it was not downloading from them. Now that it is available via iTunes, we might assume that the download issue from Amazon has also been resolved.
Below are the links to fetch the episode from the respective provides:
Frazer Hines brings his one man show "The Time Traveling Scot" to The Producer's Club Grand Theatre in Manhattan on Friday July 8th 2011.

This video features Colin Baker narrating the history of the police box in the UK. The shape that the TARDIS has been stuck in since The Unearthly Chid premiered in 1963. This feature was originally transmitted in 1993, part of the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who celebration by the BBC.
Thanks to @tvkirby for bringing this video to my attention.
The BBC released this on the Doctor Who Website earlier today.
"Contrary to press reports today we can confirm that no new episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be filmed following the tragic death of actress Elisabeth Sladen in April, 2011. As a tribute to Elisabeth the six episodes that were recorded with her last year will be broadcast on CBBC at a date to be confirmed."
There's not much said but interesting all the same.
So after all the big newspaper ranting that Doctor Who is unpopular in the UK, the official Viewing figures have been released by BARB.
8.86 Million people watched the episode with an Audience appreciation Index of 88 and it was the 6th most watched programme in the week. Now as far as fans are concerned the last bit is the one that counts. The competition are Soap Opera's and reality shows who in all fairness have multiple episodes in a week. It's going to be another week wefore we know what the final figures for "Day of the Moon" are.
