Less than two weeks away, a confession: I've been overwhelmed not only by the mammoth wall of hype over the debut of Series 6, but by some of the implications of the new season itself.
Plus, listener feedback! Plus, simultaneously, an illustration of how listener feedback can go horribly wrong! (Bad influence: Ask a […]
Top Gear America's taking it on the chin, dare I say unfairly, from the purist fans of the original. And that helps me predict whether Doctor Who will follow in The Office's footsteps as another BBC property being remade for U.S. audiences.
Who Fix co-founder, Tachyon TV co-conspirator, and video and new media professor (wait, that sounds terribly legitimate) Neil Perryman fixes blame for Dimensions in Time while making some best-case and worst-case predictions for Doctor Who's future. This is Day 2 of BBC Week on 2MTL.

For about as long as I've been podcasting, I've been on the warpath seeking the international release of Doctor Who episodes as close to the BBC One airdate as possible. I'm forced to admit that may not be practical most of the time for smaller networks such as BBC America.

Thoughts about Torchwood's new international flavor (spelled without a "u") and a spoiler-free note about the BBC's press synopsis for this year's finale round out today's podcast!
