Canada DVD Delay?

Following last week’s announcement that Doctor Who would be broadcast on the SciFi Channel in March and the subsequent delay in the release of the 2005 Series 1 DVD boxset in the USA, it seems that the Canadian release will also be delayed.

A report on tvshowsondvd.com implies that the DVD will be released 3 weeks later than planned, and is being listed on amazon.ca as due for release on March 7th. Sorry, Brian…

Elsewhere, Sixth Doctor Who Colin Baker has written an article in the Bucks Free Press. Praising new Doctor David Tennant, Colin notes:

Tennant has also been blessed with not only considerable acting ability but compelling looks and an innate charm that will prove invaluable in retaining the viewers’ interest when the series returns.

The whole article is delivered in trademark Colin Baker eloquence and well worth anyone’s time – there are few ex-stars of the show who display such a level of interest in the current incarnation.

Hot on the heels of news that David Tennant has been voted some sort of sex god by the readers of the “Pink Paper”, Executive Producer Russell T. Davies appears in a “Who’s Who” list of gay men and women in the UK in the latest issue of “Gay Times”. You can read more about this on the excellent website of SFX Magazine

Red-button Christmas treat Attack of the Graske is – astonishingly – available for play in the games section of the BBC’s Official Doctor site. Macromedia Flash Player 8 is required.

Comparisons between the new ITV series “Eleventh Hour” which stars Patrick Stewart as Professor X – I mean Hood – is reviewed in The Guardian, and appears to be competent, although they note:

Patrick Stewart is Professor Hood, an all-purpose egghead with a feisty sidekick, saving the world from the worst excesses of science. Not at all, he insists rather crossly, like Doctor Who.

And finally… the Daily Star (!) claims that Dalek replicas are selling like hotcakes, despite a £2000 asking price.

“Parts have been painstakingly sourced and meticulous work has been done to produce a stunning replica,” say the manufacturers.
