Two little tidbits of Doctor Who news for you!

First off, Professor Brian Cox's lecture on the science of Doctor Who has had its transmission date revealed - it'll be on BBC 2 on November 14th, for an hour:

Brian takes an audience, with the help of celebrity guests, on a journey into the wonderful universe of The Doctor, in a specially recorded programme from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Brian reveals the science behind the spectacle and explains the physics that allows Doctor Who to travel through space and time. Fun, but filled with real science, it’s a special night for Who fans as well anyone with a thirst for understanding.

Brian is in the unique position of knowing The Doctor’s universe inside out as well as the reality behind the drama. When the TARDIS travels through time and space, Brian understands the physics involved. And when it comes to life on other planets, Brian knows the real science that could prove extra-terrestrial life might just really exist in our galaxy.

Brian Cox = Time Lord, CONFIRMED.

Secondly, Big Finish's slap up Multi-Doctor Anniversary extravaganza, The Light at the End - starring Tom Baker, Paul McGann, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy - has begun a surprise month-early rollout.
