    There is a rumour that Jason Isaacs has been cast in the next series to play a villain. This may well fit in with the other rumour about who is behind the TARDIS esploding. We shall have to wait and see...

    Just a note that the Dr Who Prom will be live on BBC Radio 3 next Saturday evening (July 24) from 7:30-9:45 pm. There will be music from Wagner, Holst, and Orff as well as Dr Who. The BBC will broadcast it later on BBC3 as a special as they did with last year's.

    There's a write-up here on the BBC Prom website.

    I was unaware there was even a Doctor Who prom this year. Someone dropped the ball on this one, otherwise I would have bugged for tickets as my B'day present this year. :(

    I hope they record it to air alongside the Christmas episode, or as a red button special like they did last time. Half of the Doctor Who prom is what you can see, not just the music.

    I only knew about it since I heard a promo for it on Radio 3 and saw it listed in the Radio listings in today's papers. The listing in the Times TV magazine has it as the Pick of the Day.

    I wonder how big, or small to be more apt, the audience will be.

    I remember Matt Smith mentioning the Proms earlier this year in an interview but I thought that it could have been a mistake or that it was coming next year. Other than that I have heard nothing of a second Doctor Who prom.

    It will probably be pretty large. It's in the Royal Albert Hall and the booking website says it's sold out. It's also in the evening. The last one was at 11am on a Sunday.

    Dr Who and Amy Pond are presenting on BBC Radio 1!! They kicked off with Orbital and their version of the Dr Who theme tune, rather fittingly. Should be up on iPlayer later today. :D

    Not overly impressed with the episode I must say. Not bad, but it could've been shorter, there was an awful lot of padding I thought.
    Gambon was good as expected, Jenkins was meh but again for someone of no acting experience whose job was simply to look pretty and sing she did well enough.

    Trailer for the next series looks interesting though. Always good to see the Ood.

    I thought it wasn't bad. I'm going to catch the repeat on BBC3 tonight. I missed the trailer as I switched over to BBC3 to catch Dr Who Confidential. Hopefully they'll show it after the repeat. I did like the scenes of the shark pulling the rickshaw.

    If Jedward got into Dr Who I would have to quit watching. There's currently an ad for Wii or Nintendo that features them and I want to hurl every time I see it. I can't hit the remote fast enough!

    That would be wrong on so many levels.

    Nicholas Courtney has died.:(

    The Brigadier was one of Doctor Who's great characters, and Courtney always seemed like such a nice man. It's a big loss to the world of Who.
