  1. There's a new trailer https://youtu.be/0csVdLbDMO4 love this shot, under the spoiler cut.
  2. The Pertwee vibe is definitly intentional. Just compare the photo with one of Jon Pertwees early publicity shots. I rather like it actually.
  3. The impression I got was that it was a surprise to the doctor that the planet he was in was called Trenzelore, so he didn't go there on purpose.
  4. Ah yeh, I knew about those before hand, the rest came as a lovely surprise
  5. Well, "An Adventure in time and space" was absolutely fantastic. So moving and well done. David Bradley was brilliant. I'll have to watch it again to pick up all the references I missed first time round. spotted a couple of cameos I also didn't realise till the end credits that the guy who wanted to kill Doctor Who was played by the Actor who played Marco Polo.
  6. Here's the BBC America press release about the cinema screening http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2013/10/doctor-50th-anniversary-special-bbc-america-announces-3d-screening-events/
  7. And a clip on YouTube featuring the Doctor stripping off his clothes and going for a swim
  8. iTunes links: Web of Fear: https://t.co/gFN7dBkZrR Enemy of the World: https://t.co/gVajZyfN5G
  9. It's just occurred to me to check, but if we take it that the reports are true, it now means that more Troughton episodes from his era exist, than are missing now. Before this find there were 57 eps existing, 62 missing Now it's 66 existing, 53 missing I can't wait to see them, just to see all the visual stuff that Troughton put in..there's so many moments in existing episodes where you see him adding to a scene just through his body language (my favourite is on the last episode of the invasion, when after running away from the cybermen he's sitting on the ground when the photographer starts taking pics of him and he preens and poses for her)
  10. Bizarrely the first newspaper article has appeared in my local paper http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/10732000._Lost__Dr_Who_serial_found_gathering_dust_abroad/ Edited to add - it's been taken down now, but confirmed the finding of Enemy and Web episodes
  11. That seems to be the rumours I'm hearing, but some of those are coming from the Facebook page of author Lance Parkin (https://m.facebook.com/lance.parkin?id=100001275510591&_rdr) who later in the comments says he wasn't there but has heard that info from twitter. I've also heard a few murmours about Marco Polo, but can't find any source for that. Until the press release, or a report from someone who was definitely there, I'm gonna take everything with a pinch of salt
  12. EDITED - Forget what I previously wrote here in this post, I thought it was from someone who was there, but he was just reporting rumours he'd heard. Still no concrete news yet
  13. Indeed. I assume it has something to do with the release partner (iTunes or whoever) needing whatever the hell it is they need. To quote a post from another forum - I do believe it's a bit outdated in this day and age though. It's not new though, the British press have always used midnight as a time for press embargoes
  14. A few journalists have tweeted that the press conference has finished. Gonna be a long wait till midnight (although it may be earlier because both BBC News and Sky News have slots where they review the next days papers at 10:30 tonight) Of course it wouldn't surprise me if the news leaked even earlier
  15. I'm hearing the press conference is about to start, but it looks like there's a press embargo until midnight tonight. I'm sure some info will leak out on twitter before then though
  16. Last I heard they'd put it back to Thursday, but things seen to be changing hour by hour, so who knows lol
  17. Heres a report from the Daily Mirror which suggests that BBC Worldwide are holding a press conference on Tuesday about it. It looks like this is actually going to happen. http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/long-lost-doctor-who-episodes-unveiled-2345526
  18. It'll be simulcast in 75 countries which is pretty mind boggling. Europe: Germany (Fox), Finland (YLE), Poland (BBC Entertainment), Russia (Karousel and NKS) North America: USA (BBC America), Canada (Space) Latin America (BBC Entertainment and BBC HD): Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela Africa (BBC Entertainment): Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde Islands, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome & Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania & Zanzibar, Togo, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe. Australia (ABC) Asia (on BBC Entertainment): Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand
  19. They're releasing the whole of the new series so far, on Blu-Ray. Here's the complete box set http://www.bbcshop.com/doctor-who/doctor-who-the-complete-series-1-7-box-set-blu-ray/invt/bbcbd0242?cm_mmc=DWTV-_-Doctor+who-_-DWTV-_-Complete+series+1-7 Costs £167 and is out in the UK on 4th November, but I imagine sometime next year they'll release the individual seasons seperately.
  20. So the DVD of "the Tenth Planet" will have a recently rediscovered short interview with William Hartnell, filmed just a few months after he left the role. It's the only footage (audio or visual) of Hartnell being interviewed that is known to exist. It's always nice to see something rare like this. http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/08/hartnell-tv-interview-discovered-160813184817.html
  21. He's the first Oscar winner to play the Doctor (admitedly, his Oscar was for Directing a short film, not acting ). He's also a good friend with Craig Ferguson (they were in a band together when they were young). Given that, plus how much of a fan of Who Craig is, I can imagine him appearing on his show again to promote the show (although i doubt they'll discuss taking Acid together again, like they did last time he was on ). This announcement has certainly given me a shot in the arm regarding DW. As a lifelong fan since the Davison years, i've been feeling these past few months a bit jaded about the show (As most fans feel at some point or another i'm sure) but i feel very enthusiastic again.
  22. Mind, I wonder how many kids will do a search for him on YouTube and find compilations of him from 'the Thick of It", featuring him swearing nonstop lol
