It’s time again for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, and if you haven’t been living under a rock, then you know that it is also the final episodes with David Tennant.
BBC and BBC have announced their schedules, and I am so happy that we in America are getting the show on the next day. Usually we wait a few months before we get to see the new shows.
The BBC will be showing The End of Time Part I at 6 PM on Christmas Day, Friday the 25th. The End of Time Part II will be shown the next Friday, January 1st.
BBC America will be showing Part I on the 26th of December at 9 pm, and Part II on January 2nd at 8 pm.
For those that can’t wait, here are two trailers for Doctor Who – The End of Time Christmas Special, and a Christmas Promo thingy with the Doctor;

Doctor Who Best Sci-Fi Show Ever
Recently, the magazine ‘Wizard’ named the 25 greatest sci-fi shows ever. At the top of the list was Doctor Who. Among the other top 25 shows were;
- The Outer Limits
- Star Trek
- Star Trek TNG
- Firefly (which could have been successful, but it was on the WB)
- V (loved it as a kid)
- The X-Files
- Battlestar Galactica
- Twilight Zone
Theme from Doctor Who #1
Also, the Doctor Who theme was voted #1 sci-fi tv them ever by the readers of Total Sci-Fi. According to the votes, these were the top ten themes;
- Doctor Who
- Red Dwarf ( I love Red Dwarf)
- The X-Files
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Star Trek
- The Twilight Zone
- Battlestar Galactica (I have to think that this is the original series)
- Quantum Leap
- The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
Most of these were in the previous list, which makes you think that a good theme song has something to do with a shows popularity.
Guinness Book of World Records and Doctor Who
And there’s even more proof that Doctor Who is the greatest sci-fi show ever, the Guinness Book of World Records has listed Doctor Who twice. The first listing is for the longest running sci-fi show. At 43 years and 723 episodes, it blows every other show away. Only Stargate SG-1 has it beat by being the longest continuous running show.
The second listing is for Doctor Who being the most succcessful sci-fi show. The award was presented to Russell T. Davies by Guinness editor in chief, Craig Glenday, who said, “It’s the longest-running sci-fi show on TV. But that’s not quite enough, it’s too good a show to have a longest-running record. Based on things like CD sales, downloads, illegal downloads, we’ve realised that Doctor Who is the most successful sci-fi show on TV full stop.”

Karen Gillan has been announced as the new companion for Doctor Who. She has actually been seen before by Who fans as the soothsayer in the “Fires of Pompeii” episode.
I am starting to get a little concerned that the Doctors and Companions are seeming to become very young. Gillan is 21. It’s not that I don’t want to see someone who is younger play the part, but I don’t want to see Doctor Who become a teenage drama show.
That being said, I hope she does a good job, and of course, I can’t wait for the next special and the new season to start.

Yes, you read that right, a Dalek was found at the bottom of a muddy pond in Beaulieu, Hampshire, UK. Can you imagine if you were the one cleaning up the pond and a Dalek comes up to the surface?
Marc Oakland (who found the Dalek) said “I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me. It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage. One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out.”
The team did some searching but didn’t find anymore Dalek or alien parts. They are keeping the actual location of the pond secret to prevent fans from coming and getting into it.
The Pond Warden, Tony Brown, said “We discovered the BBC often took the Daleks out on location for filming, and they travelled to Hampshire on at least one occasion in the 1980s, when Colin Baker played the Time Lord. Who knows? This might be the remains of one of the originals from the old TV series. I’m told they were built to last.”
That is pretty cool. I’d love to have a life size Dalek to put on display in my house.

A new magazine and DVD series called The Doctor Who DVD Files is being launched this week. However close the name of my site is, it isn’t related to the DVD series. I’m just lucky.
The Doctor Who Files will be available every fortnight, and will have a DVD with two episode, and a magazine with information and references about the shows. The first magazine will feature Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Rose in “Rose” and “The End of the World” episodes.
I think any Who fan would be crazy not to get this DVD magazine.

Could it be? The next Doctor Who?
They’ve done things like this before, and tried to trick us.
Watch this video and see what you think.
Could this guy be the next Doctor? I think that he may be an older Doctor, and he crossed paths with himself, but if he was, then David Tennant’s Doctor should have recognized him as being himself. A little confusing I know, but then that what happens when you travel through time and space.
If you don’t believe how bad traveling like that can be, read this, an excerpt from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy:
One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of accidentally becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem involved in becoming your own father or mother that a broad-minded and well-adjusted family can’t cope with…
The major problem is quite simply one of grammar, and the main work to consult in this matter is Dr. Dan Streetmentioner’s Time Traveler’s Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations. It will tell you, for instance, how to describe something that was about to happen to you in the past before you avoided it by time-jumping forward two days in order to avoid it. The event will be described differently according to whether you are talking about it from the standpoint of your own natural time, from a time in the further future, or a time in the further past and is further complicated by the possibility of conducting conversations while you are actually traveling from one time to another with the intention of becoming your own mother or father.
Most readers get as far as the Future Semiconditionally Modified Subinverted Plagal Past Subjunctive Intentional before giving up; and in fact in later editions of the book all the pages beyond this point have been left blank to save on printing costs. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy skips lightly over this tangle of academic abstraction, pausing only to note that the term “Future Perfect” has been abandoned since it was discovered not to be.
Anyway, back the Doctor, I think that he would recognise one of his previous incarnations, but I think that is what it is. It would be too easy for that to be the next Doctor.
