Just reminding everyone about watching the Doctor Who Christmas special The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe tonight on BBC America at 9 pm ET.  Not that all of us Doctor Who fans need reminding!

The Best of the Doctor Who Christmas specials was great on BBC America last night, and I hope you caught that along with with The Nerdist Year in Review 2011!

Merry Christmas everyone!

The New Touchy-Feely Doctor Who Trend

Here’s a very interesting article about Doctor Who comparing the old to the new.  Like we haven’t done that ourselves, right?

The ITV Encyclopedia of Adventure Book

Leave a comment

There’s something I’d like to share with everyone.  I bought this book a very long time ago from a local book store called The Book Nook, and there was a book that caught my eye.  It was called The ITV Encyclopedia of Adventure.  I was and still am in to all sorts of information about television series, and this book is one of those that really expanded on a lot of British television from the early days to the last 1980s.  There are entries from Robin of Sherwood, The Tomorrow People and even The Avengers.  Of course it’s been a while since I browsed through this book, but there’s a ton more!  If you don’t own this book, you can buy one.  I think it is well worth the price just as long as the price don’t go over say $25.

The Muppets New Movie

Leave a comment

We’ve all seen the commercials, and the movie will start next week.  Are you ready for more Muppet mania?!?!

I’m sure you are wondering, “How are the Muppets British?”  Well honestly no one in the United States would produce the Muppets so it took a British company ITV to produce the show.  It’s good because the Muppets wouldn’t be they way they are if it wasn’t for them.

If you haven’t completed your collection of Muppets, you can do so here.

Straight to DVD Sherlock Holmes

Leave a comment

Here’s something I didn’t realize. In the time when Robert Downey, Jr (Iron Man) was Sherlock Holmes on DVD and Blu-ray, and the BBC had their re-imagining of Sherlock DVD and Blu-ray with Benedict Cumberbatch (Amazing Grace; The Hobbit) and Martin Freeman (Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy; The Hobbit) there was a straight to video release last year.

I don’t know if the Baker Street Babes Podcast knew about this, but we got a straight to DVD release of Sherlock Holmes with Ben Syder as Sherlock Homes, Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood) as Dr. Watson, and Dominic Keating (Star Trek: Enterprise) as Thorpe Holmes.

It is absolutely amazing how you find little things like this! I am sure it would be very interesting to see Gareth as Dr. Watson! Perhaps it can be rented from Blockbuster or Netflix so check it out!

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to The World of British Television 2.0. Originally this was a web site that I designed with all sorts of lists and things. In the coming months I’m going to give this blog a face lift. I know I’m not a very graphical type of person so I know I’m going to have a nice looking logo eventually whether it is by me or a friend.

I haven’t figured out how I’m going to have my list of books and DVDs/Blu-rays, but as I go along and learn more of this I’ll get those together in no time! I hope you’ll enjoy this new blog and please give me any feedback about the site or what you would like to see on this lovely blog.

Be seeing you!
