Doctor Who - Season 3: Only One Month to Go!

Between "Doctor Who Magazine"(issue 380 below), the main BBC site and "Outpost Gallifrey, there's been a flurry of news in the past 24 hours, so I'm cramming it into this one post.

Most importantly perhaps is the start date. It's not the 7 April/Easter Saturday start I expected nor the (apparently) slated 24 March which DWM and BBC Wales originally worked to. Because of a football match (aaaaargh) it's being delayed a week to 31 March.

The opening episode has long been known to be "Smith and Jones", but as of yesterday we are only missing 3 episode titles. Here's what is known now:

1. Smith and Jones by Russell T. Davies,
directed by Charles Palmer tx 31 March

2. The Shakespeare Code by Gareth Roberts,
directed by Charles Palmer tx 7 April

3. Episode 3 by Russell T. Davies,
directed by Richard Clarke tx 14 April

4. Daleks in Manhattan (part one) by Helen Raynor,
directed by James Strong tx 21 April

5. Episode 5 (part two) by Helen Raynor,
directed by James Strong tx 28 April

6. The Lazarus Experiment by Stephen Greenhorn,
directed by Richard Clarke tx 5 May

7. 42 by Chris Chibnall,
directed by Graeme Harper tx 12 May

8. Human Nature (part one) by Paul Cornell,
directed by Charles Palmer tx 19 May

9. The Family of Blood by Paul Cornell,
directed by Charles Palmer tx 26 May

10. Blink by Steven Moffat,
directed by Hettie MacDonald tx 2 June

11. Utopia by Russell T. Davies,
directed by Graeme Harper tx 9 June

12. The Sound of Drums (part one) by Russell T. Davies,
directed by Colin Teague tx 16 June

13. Episode 13 (part two) by Russell T. Davies,
directed by Colin Teague tx 23 June

(I've added the broadcast dates assuming no pesky interruptions for sport, of course).

Meanwhile the DVD release of last Christmas's "Runaway Bride" is to be a standalone (albeit accompanied by the hour-long "Music and Mosters" special episode of "Doctor Who Confidential"). It's in the shops on 2 April (just ahead of the "Survival" release). Cover reproduced below.

I'm assuming this means a further hour's worth of extras will be on the Series 3 box set in November. I expect this may be the animated adventure, "The Infinite Quest", which will run in CBBC's "Totally Doctor Who"
