BBC America Announces US Start Date

BBC America has announced that their broadcasts of the new series of Doctor Who will start on April 17th. The date has been reported in the Hollywood trade paper Variety, and has been confirmed on BBC America’s website and Facebook page.

The start date for UK broadcast has not yet been officially confirmed. There are reports that a trailer has aired with the date of April 3rd, but this may have been broadcast in error. The BBC’s official position is that the series will debut “at Easter”.

This helps with the heartbreak.

If you’ve been following this blog at all, you already know I’m addicted to Dr Who, and absolutely adore David Tennant in the role.  With only two more episodes (3 more in America) with my beloved Ten as the Doctor, I’m feeling the heartbreak.

However, I came across something that gives me a reason to look forward to Eleven: 18th century Venice!  This article is google-translated to English, so it’s kind of…interesting to read, but oh, the PICTURES!  Besides it being my favorite place in the world, this is (possibly) my favorite time period for costuming.  If I like Eleven anywhere near as well as I do Ten, this episode will be a heavenly hour.

The New Doctor

So here it is, folks, the “look” of the 11th Doctor.  (They’ve started shooting Smith’s episodes, and pictures are being released!)

Not a fan myself of the skinny little bow-tie.  The 10th Doctor has much better fashion sense!!!!

Things I am Happy about at this Moment…

1) A new season of Chad Vader begins February 1st!!!!

If you don’t know who or what Chad Vader is, go to this link and be educated. Truly, Chad Vader is one of the marvels of YouTube.

2) They’ve chosen a new Doctor, and it’s no one I hate. It’s actually no one I know either, but that’s a good thing, as I am able to come into this relationship with no prior baggage. He’s young, yes, but I’ve watched this interview with him, and I’ve seen a few moments of Doctor-ness in him. He’s certainly got offbeat looks. I like that in a British actor.

However, I still grieve the passing of the 10th Doctor.

3) The new season of Lost begins in a few days, and as I’ve just had a marathon viewing of the last season on DVD, I’m primed and ready. Time travel and disappearing islands and many other things I may never understand, yay!

4) My steampunk corset is half done. And I mean literally half done. Since it laces up the front and back, when it’s unlaced, it’s in two separate pieces. One side is completed, the other half still needs its embroidery, which I’m putting off, because the first half wasn’t all that fun to embroider. I tried a new embroidery stitch, and I’m sorta regretting it. But yay – half of it looks gorgeous!

5) I’ve sold 3 steampunk penguins this month!

6) It looks like Obama plans to pay for my chicken coop I’m building this Spring. More on this later.

7) And now I’m going to watch a Jane Austen film on tv.
