Jeff, Chris and Chuck of the popular cult TV podcast Television Zombies show up on my show, after a couple of years of having me on as a DW geek on call, to talk about how Doctor Who's going over in the States. What happens when three guys who're into more genre TV [...]
Some U.S. fans accustomed to waiting for iTunes or using "other means" to get their Who Fix (TM) found it hard to deal with commercials, promos and additions to the day-and-date broadcast of "The Impossible Astronaut" on BBC America. Patience, folks: not only are those changes unavoidable in the TV biz, but they're ultimately [...]

While things are still looking up for Doctor Who on BBC America, the longer the delay between U.K. and U.S. airings, the greater the impact of spoilers (and the resulting temptation to obtain the BBC One airings through "other means"). BBC America can solve this by airing the episodes as close to day-and-date as humanly [...]
Well, this is so totally not the podcast I was working on to release tonight. Variety reports, and Radio Free Skaro noticed that BBC America is bringing The Doctor home from the Sci Fi Channel. Brief thoughts attached….
Check back soon — hopefully tomorrow! — for a great feature on Rich Morris, the [...]
