WhoSounds Ltd and BBC Worldwide have announced the release of a 2.1 speaker system in the shape of the Tardis for use over Bluetooth and through a standard 3.5mm auxiliary cable, read on for further details:

Fully scaled and beautifully designed, the speaker is sure to delight all would-be Time Lords, and offers a number of unique features.

A high quality 2.1 sound system is compatible with Bluetooth input as well as audio from any device fitted with a 3.5mm headphone. Whilst two internal full-range speakers housed inside a tuned and sealed chamber with bass provided by a separate drive unit - all powered by an integral 2.1 audio amplifier designed and optimised by an ex-Harmon Kardon sound engineer - for low distortion and high clarity, offers a real treat for audio fans.

The next and previous track selection, volume and separate bass and treble adjustments can also be made via a neat remote control.

And, for a real time travel experience, the ambient LED light positioned on the roof flashes blue when paired with a Bluetooth device, and the speaker also makes the famous Tardis landing sound.

This fantastic speaker also features a built-in USB port which is capable of delivering up to 1 Amp, making it more than adequate to power and charge Smartphones and tablets.

WhoSounds Ltd director, Karl Grimsey, says:

The Tardis speaker will delight all Doctor Who fans. Far more than just a toy or souvenir, the function and sonic performance of the Tardis Speaker will wow audio fans too.

The speaker system will be on sale from 6th April at all good digital hardware stores priced £150 per purchase.

50th Anniversary - Special to Broadcast in 3D!

The BBC have announced that the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will broadcast in 3D! Read on for more details:

Ben Stephenson, the BBC’s Controller of Drama Commissioning, has revealed some exciting news about plans to mark Doctor Who’s half-century. Earlier today he announced, "As part of the BBC's blockbuster celebrations to mark the Doctor turning 50, fans will be able to see the Time Lord and his adventures like never before - in 3D!"

To be broadcast using some of the BBC’s HD capacity, Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, said: "It's about time. Technology has finally caught up with Doctor Who and your television is now bigger on the inside. A whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore."

The 50th Anniversary special is to broadcast later this year on BBC One and BBC One HD. However, Doctor Who is to return sooner at Easter on 30th March with the second half of series seven, consisting of eight episodes featuring the Doctor and new companion Clara.

Series 7, Part 2 - Ice Warriors to Return!

SFX magazine have confirmed that the classic Doctor Who monsters the Ice Warriors are set to return in the second part of the current series, read on for further details from the interview with executive producer Caro Skinner:

 "We’ve got the most fantastic episode by Mark Gatiss, where we are bringing back the Ice Warrior… on a submarine! It’s a really wonderful kind of ‘bunker’ episode, and a classic monster which Mark has brought his own inimitable twist to."

"We wanted to bring them back because they’re wonderful! In the mix of stories that we were planning for this year it felt as if doing something very bold with a monster that hadn’t been seen for a while would be really cool. Mark is an enormous fan of the Ice Warrior stories and came up with the idea. The sense of a monster of that scale and that size trapped in a really small, contained environment such as a submarine was a really brilliant story to be able to tell. And obviously we’ve had a huge amount of fun going back to the traditional designs and recreating them, bringing the Ice Warriors back to life again."

"They were such a beautiful original design, and are genuinely really scary in terms of what they look like as they’re coming towards you in that armour. Letting a huge Ice Warrior loose at the heart of a classic Hunt For Red October style submarine movie was exactly the kind of story that the Doctor should get mixed up in."

"They’ve got really scary voices as well. I spent quite a lot of time on set trying to hiss like an Ice Warrior..."

The Ice Warriors last appeared in the 1974 story The Monster of Peladon. Doctor Who returns this Easter to BBC One and BBC One HD with part two of series seven.

"I had no preconceptions about the programme when I joined it… I only knew I did not want to be like the Doctors who had gone before. However, the old producers wanted me to play it for laughs, you can see that in the first episode. The hat business. The shower. I had already decided I want to play it straight. Luckily those producers left after the first story and were replaced by Barry Letts who let me play it my way…"

DWM uses its beryllium atomic clock to turn back time to 1996, and the momentous evening that Doctor Who returned to TV, starring Paul McGann, as Countdown to 50 continues.

April 2013 Novels - Covers & Details

BBC Books have revealed the cover and synopsis of three new Doctor Who novels, read on for further details:
SHROUD OF SORROW - by Tommy Donbavand
23rd November, 1963. It is the day after John F. Kennedy’s assassination - and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter’s Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane. 

Then the faces begin to talk, and scream... and push through into our world. As the alien Shroud begins to feast on the grief of a world in mourning, can the Doctor dig deep enough into his own sorrow to save mankind?

THE DALEK GENERATION - by Nicholas Briggs
Sunlight 349 is one of countless Dalek Foundation worlds, planets created to house billions suffering from economic hardship. The Doctor arrives at Sunlight 349, suspicious of any world where the Daleks are apparently a force for good - and determined to find out the truth. The Doctor knows they have a far more sinister plan - but how can he convince those who have lived under the benevolence of the Daleks for a generation?

But convince them he must, and soon. For on another Foundation planet, archaeologists have unearthed the most dangerous technology in the universe...

PLAGUE OF THE CYBERMEN - by Justin Richards
When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague - a ‘wasting disease’. The victims face a horrible death – but what’s worse, the dead seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned…

The Doctor is confident he knows what’s really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he’s sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor’s oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken he realises that maybe - just maybe - he’s misjudged the situation.

All three novels are on sale from 11th April at all good bookstores priced £6.99 each.
