After a dry spell, Doctor Who news is starting to come in-- and a great big 'Thank you' goes to Barkingmad for pointing these bits out--
First comes the HUGE story that this year's Children In Need Doctor Who special will feature ALL ELEVEN DOCTORS (!!!). David Tennant will be the 'lead' Doctor, but all the surviving actors (Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker,Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann (!), Christopher Eccleston, and Matt Smith(!!)) will be present for this fifteen minute charity episode. The Doctors who've passed on (William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee) will be present as well, in the form of footage from their respective tenures. Again, a huge thanks to Barkingmad for pointing this out.... I've been a bad 'Bot and was obviously sleeping on the job to let this get past me. (Source The Mirror) Keep in mind, since the source is The Mirror, this could be a bit .... premature. Still, the possibility has me rather excited.
Second, another tip from Barkingmad, The Ten Doctors. I'll admit, I've been selfish. I've kept this little gem to myself, but thanks to the reminder, I've decided to share. This is a webcomic that I've been reading for a couple of years... and the author has recently wrapped up the strip. It's a huge, rollicking adventure that captures each of the Doctor's personalities, companions, enemies...You can download it as a whole or in chapters in easy to read PDF format that should work on whatever device you want to read it on. Hmmm. That gives me an idea... .WATCH THIS SPACE FOR AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!
Third, the Doctor Who special "The Next Doctor" will be airing tomorrow night (Saturday, June 27 at 9pm Eastern) on BBC America- which is rapidly becoming THE destination for S-F on the ol' cable dial. You can check out my review of this special HERE
Fourth, Torchwood mini-series "Children of Earth" will begin airing on July 20th at 9pm, and continue throughout the week
Okay... now everybody talk about the super-multi-Doctor episode below!
