If any of you enjoyed watching Tom Baker fight rubber monsters on PBS years ago, you may or may not be aware that the BBC is making new Doctor Who again.

For some reason, no one's broadcasting it in the US (though it is being shown in Canada), but it's readily available on BitTorrent and is very enjoyable if you're into that kind of thing. It got great ratings on the BBC, and will be back for a second (and some say third) season. However, Eccelston has left the show and will replaced by Tenth Doctor David Tennant:
