Tenth Doctor Who Christmas specials

Doctor Who

The demise of the Tenth (and arguably most popular Doctor), played by David Tennant is to be shown over the Christmas period in a special two part episode. Most of us know this already, but here we can confirm the dates and times as 6pm Christmas Day and 6.40pm New Years day on BBC One.

These promise to be very special episodes indeed, hinted by the end of Water of Mars with the strange Ood visitation, and of course the change in the Doctor himself. The Ood play a part in the episodes, with a new Ood city, that only took 100 years to build.

Giant UFO triangle filmed over Moscow Kremlin

A giant UFO has been filmed hovering over the Kremlin in Russia by passers by, and experts are so far baffled over the footage. The video, which is now the most viewed video on the Russian Youtube, if genuine can be arguably the best footage yet over the growing evidence of UFO activity.

These questions remain unanswered but do question the events's credability. Judge for...

70 minute review for Phantom Menace

This is one of those rare finds on the internet, a very unusual review of the Star Wars film, Episode 1 Phantom Menace. At 1 hour and 10 minutes, this is a review like you will have never seen before.

Narrated in a very unusual, dead pan voice, the reviewer clearly knows his stuff, and leaves no stone unturned. It is however very very strange but also oddly addictive viewing, It's also been approved by Simon Peg no less.

Borders Books

The recent collapse of the book seller chain Borders has left many publishers very concerned over the £5m - £7m debt however news has emerged recently that this will be recouped by the ongoing sale of existing stocks.

The administrators handling the close, MCR told publishers that it had sufficient funds to settle claims and was prepared to make stock available for suppliers to collect providing they could establish valid claims.

The Bulgarians are among us...

The Bulgarians are among us...

According to the Bulgarian government scientist Professor Lachezar Filipov, Aliens are already here on earth and have been visiting us for some time. They also claim to be in contact with these Aliens and are working on deciphering a complex set of symbols that were sent to them.

Furthermore the Aliens are currently answering 30 questions that the scientists have asked them (So we may finally get an answer about Elvis then!).

The professor claims that 150 crop circles around the world hold the answers to these 30 questions and that these answers contain very useful information for the whole of humanity, including an answer about the 2012 apocalypse....
