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.
You can find the interview here on examiner.com: Louis Trapani of Doctor Who Podshock visits the Examiner again
If you listened to Doctor Who: Podshock 189 when we interviewed Sarah Douglas, you will know of our very own DWP Correspondent Amy Krell's project 'Witchville' coming to the Syfy channel which stars Sarah. We can now present you with a sneak preview of the movie making its debut on Saturday, the 22nd of May 2010 (9/8c).
Be sure to catch it next month (May 22, 2010 9/8c).
Doctor Who: Podshock will be once again be taking to the net this Sunday (2 May 2010) for a live-over-the-net show reviewing the fifth episode of the new series, Flesh and Stone.
He's back… and it's about time! We return with our live-over-the-net review series this time talking about the 5th episode of the new series starring Matt Smith as the Doctor premiering on BBC One this Saturday (coming to BBC America on May 15th). We will be reviewing Flesh and Stone.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 196
Running Time: 1:02:13
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.
A moment of levity during the live recording of Doctor Who: Podshock 187 at Gallifrey 21 in Los Angeles, CA. (L-R) Ken Deep, two special surprise guests; Yee Jee Tso (Chang Lee in the 1996 TV movie), and Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway in the 1996 TV movie), Louis Trapani, and James Naughton.
