WhatCulture has 4 Doctor Who Monsters That Should Return. "Previously I took the axe to the Adipose, the Rutan Host, Raxacoricofallapatorians and the Movellans as species that should never again be seen in Doctor Who. This time, I hop on my other foot, and pick four monsters that we should see return. They’re species that add that something special to the series and, with the current special effects gurus doing such a good job, could look pretty damned cool...."

BBC America - Anglophenia has A Companion To The Doctor’s Companions: Dodo Chaplet. Note to all aspiring actors and actresses: If you’re going for a part in a hugely successful science fiction series, one which looks like it might stand a chance of running for quite a while, try not to get saddled with a character who is named after an extinct bird. There’s a chance you may live to regret it...

Podcasts and VBlogs...
Beware most podcasts are of an adult nature and are not suitable for children.

TimeVault has Episode 25 Doctor Who – The Ambassadors of Death. Underground bunkers, astronauts, aliens, radiation…of DEATH, helicopters, more underground bunkers, explosions, a baker’s van…of DEATH, false beards and some crap magic.

The Happiness Patrol has Episode 84: Robot Clock On The Wall. It's pick of the week time again on The Happiness Patrol and we love it! It's been awhile since we actually talked about Doctor Who but never fear, this week we do! So go check out these episodes that Nancy, Lela, Dale and I suggest...even though you've seen them before!

A Mad Man with a Box has Ron Purtee - Army of Ghosts and Doomsday. Filmaker and friend Ron Purtee joins me this week for the first new series episode discussion. Daleks vs. Cybermen, the Doctor and Rose crying on a beach, two hearts are more romantic than one people and if the Series 2 finale doesn’t choke you up than you probably don’t have any hearts at all.

Tid-Bits...

Springfield Punx has Doctor Who - The Second Doctor! Patrick Troughton as the 2nd Doctor.

Big Finish have released the cover for 6.10 Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles - The Wanderer. Siberia at the end of the 19th Century, and the TARDIS arrives just as a shooting star hurtles to the ground...

RedBubble.com has TARDIS Beer iPhone Case by zerobriant.

Review's Roundup...

TARDIS Eruditorum has Our Mode of Conveyance is Irrelevant (Time-Flight). One of the nice things about watching Doctor Who as a child with only the Peter Haining book to go by is that you simply don’t know things like that, though. I could, as a child, identify broad eras of Doctor Who that I didn’t care for as much as others, but even the Pertwee era, the one I actively liked least as a child, was fun....

Brian of Morbius has Alas, poor Yorick. "One of the things I love about classic Doctor Who is the way it rips off the classics without ever actually saying it’s ripping off the classics. ‘The Brain of Morbius’ is an obvious example: it’s Frankenstein, and all the trademarks are there, but they never really talk about it on camera. The viewer is allowed to draw their own conclusions. The same may be said of ‘Planet of Evil’, which has obvious Jekyll / Hyde parallels that are never overtly dealt with or even mentioned. There’s a quiet sense of self-assurance about this, as if they weren’t afraid to dip in and out of great stories, and didn’t feel the need to point it out or justify themselves...."
