A 2005-style (bronze) Dalek appeared on tonight’s episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson — I found out about it literally 10 minutes before the episode started thanks to Twitter and was able to set my DVR to record it in time.
I took several screen shots which I’ll post below, but first here is a video of the opening for the show, which featured Craig waxing enthusiastic about the Daleks:
It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to update the site so I thought I’d just add a quick post with a short video of my parakeet Sutekh The Destroyer, named after the classic Doctor Who villain of the same name from Pyramids of Mars.
Being the silly geek that I am, when I got him a few years ago I thought to myself “what’s the most ridiculous thing I could name a parakeet?” — given parakeets are small, harmless & friendly animals I figured the exact opposite would be an ancient and powerful god of evil, and so immediately thought of Sutekh from Pyramids.

Shown on CBBC at 11:30 GMT – not half an hour ago – got to love the speed of the Internet.
This brand new clip features the newly regenerated eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond (presumably no relation to the duck pond in the clip) debating whether the pond in question can really be a duck pond even if it never has ducks.
The two are interrupted as the Doctor clutches his chest as he seems to be having some kind of physical problem with the regeneration (which we know from The Christmas Invasion can take fifteen hours to “set”).

OK, it’s not as bad as it sounds. I found this very funny article which seems to prove that at least *some* school administrators have a sense of humor in these days of overreactions and overzealous protection against theortecical physical or psychological harm.
Matt Smith appeared today on the Jonathan Ross show in the UK. For those of us who missed the broadcast (or who, like me, couldn’t see it due to a pesky ocean being in the way) I’m collecting the clips here.
First off we have a new version of the Doctor Who series 5 trailer (or series 31, or “series fnarg” as some people are calling it). This is substantially similar to the second BBC trailer I posted a few days ago, but has a slightly different voiceover and a few new bits of footage for us to pause and geek over.

The official BBC website has been updated with a new look to go with the new Doctor and series. With the premiere of the first episode, The Eleventh Hour, set to materialize on Saturday, April 3rd, the Beeb has promised us a taste to whet our appetites for the full story.
BBC America has started airing their own trailer for the new series of Doctor Who, featuring Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond. This new trailer includes new footage not seen in the recently released BBC trailer, so more freeze-frame fun for us fans to over analyze the footage to tide us over until the series begins in April.
From the voice over:
“The Universe is vast and complicated. Sometimes, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.
New Doctor Who series producer Steven Moffat had a chat with the folks on BBC Breakfast this morning about the new series and has a few words to say to calm the fears of fans who are worried the new Doctor can’t be as good as the old one.
Moffat also talks about some of the returning monsters we’ll see this series, including the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels, and confirms the long-standing rumor that the reptilians you see in the first trailer are indeed the Silurians.
