Blink Music Video

One of the great things I love is when one creative work leads to another one -- and that is always true of Doctor Who.

So something like the music video -- with new original fan-created music -- for Chameleon Circuit's Blink is fantastic. It's a really good song, and one that I can't wait to find a way to get a copy of.

Dalek War Boxset

One of the incredible parts of Doctor Who fandom is the application of technology to preserve and restore the series past. And seeing the story about how episode three of Planet of the Daleks on the Dalek War Boxset is incredible.

It's fascinating if you are interested in film and television restoration -- above and beyond what it does for our Doctor Who libraries.

Guess I was wrong on that one!

Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor -- and he's someone that wasn't on my radar at all. I'm surprised. And a bit disturbed, because I was alright seeing the Doctor being played by someone my age... but now the Doctor will be younger than just about everyone I know that isn't a kid....

Making A Prediction

Since it looks like the BBC will be making an announcement tomorrow, I figure it's my last chance to make a prediction. I think Number 11 is going to be Patterson Joseph.

It feels right to me that it would be a non-white actor to play the Doctor at this point -- and he's got a personality that feels Doctorish to me. He's also got a career that makes sense to be a Doctor -- he's worked with Steven Moffat on Jekyll, a history of working on (and interest in) telefantasy projects like Neverwhere and the new Survivors. He's not too big of an actor -- he's someone that I can see committing several years to a televison role --

By posting this, I'm sure to be wrong -- but he makes a lot of sense to me. And if I'm wrong, I'll be surprised, which isn't bad either!
