From a Radio 1 interview with David Tennant:

What advice would you give to Matt (Smith), who’s taking over as the 11th doctor?

He’ll be fine. He doesn’t need any advice. He’ll be fine. He’s got the hair. He’ll be grand.

Dalek Found Submerged in Pond

In a scene right out of a Doctor Who script, a team of volunteers clearing a pond of rubbish uncovered a long-submerged Dalek.

The Telegraph reports that sales executive Marc Oakland was pushing a rake around the bed of the shallow pool when he found the object with its distinctive eye stalk.

The 42-year-old said: “I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface.

“I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.

“It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage.

“One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out.”

Pond warden Tony Brown, 70, was leading the volunteer squad clearing dumped rubbish from the pond, near Beaulieu, Hants.

He said: “We made a very thorough search of the rest of the bottom of the pond and there were definitely no alien remnants lurking.

“We’ve all agreed it best to keep the pond’s exact location under wraps.

“The last thing we want are sci-fi fans descending on the pond frantically seraching for other Dalek parts.”

Mr Brown, who trained as a pond warden with Southern Water, has been helping clear out the area for the past eight years.

He said: “We’ve dredged up everything from shopping trolleys, toys, and bicycles.

“But this is the first time a Dalek’s appeared. We have no idea how it ended up in there, or how long ago.

“We discovered the BBC often took the Daleks out on location for filming, and they travelled to Hampshire on at least one occasion in the 1980s, when Colin Baker played the Timelord.

“Who knows, this might be the remains of one of the originals from the old TV series. I’m told they they were built to last.”

Why is it that every new TV series has to have some underlying conspiracy that spans all the episodes?

Hey, TV execs, its not a kewl thing – it’s really annoying.

So, I have been watching Airline and Homeland Security USA.

Wow… are people really that rude? I cant even imagine how they would behave if they were not on camera.

Regarding Homeland Security USA, its a really good show. Not politically skewed, just showing what the real work that TSA, Border Patrol, and Customes & Imigration do. It even shows them making mistakes, such as drawing guns on a family of four in a case of mistaken identity.
