'Doctor Who' smashes BBC America's ratings record

Doctor Who smashed all ratings records for BBC America last week, being watched by almost 1.3 million viewers. The current series of the BBC's sci-fi drama has been given a massive push to establish it in the US, with the opening two episodes set and partially shot in Utah, with a massive promotional blitz in the country.


Up to his old tricks again!

The Silence

The Silence are a terrifying race who invaded Earth at an undetermined point in our history. They have powers of telepathy and can kill using a deadly discharge from their hands. But every Silent has a far eerier ability...

Even if you see a Silent, you won't know you've spotted it as Silence somehow edit themselves from an observer's memory. Glimpse one of these creatures and you may feel slightly unsettled the moment it's out of view, but you won't remember anything about it. If and when you next see a Silent you may have a flashback to your first encounter, but again, when the Silent is out of view your mind will not recall ever seeing the alien.

Amy spotted a solitary Silent in modern day America and in 1969 River Song and Rory stumbled across a nest of Silence in a series of tunnels beneath the US. They are horrifyingly powerful killers... can the Doctor stop them? via

Doctor Who fan Steve Clark sues BBC over Davros claim

A lifelong Doctor Who fan is suing the BBC for breach of copyright after claiming to have created the evil leader of the Daleks - Davros. Steve Clark, 52, from Calland, Brabourne Lees, has begun proceedings at the High Court in London after failing to come to an amicable solution with the Beeb.

And not surprising when you look at his sketches from 1972

Unlimited Rice Pudding

No, we don't have that much Rice Pudding to give away and we know what day it is, but Unlimited Rice Pudding have got some info on the new, very short trailer...

Okay, I’m officially pooing myself, now.
So, as I’m sure you’re aware, last night a brief teaser trailer for The Impossible Astronaut aired across the various BBC channels at 9pm. If you haven’t already seen it, head on over to the main site now. Not much to see, right?
Well, er, wrong. Because there were actually two different versions. And depending on what channel you were watching – and even, it seems, what region you were in – you may have seen one or the other.

I prefer treacle pudding with custard myself!
