SDCC 2012 – Doctor Who Season 7 Panel with Video

The good Doctor is just a few months away from returning to us on the television again, to hold everyone over though, the team made a stop at San Diego Comic-Con again this year to share tidbits on the new season including details around the trouble headed toward the Ponds and a little bit on the new companion headed to the show.

Attempted to shoot this on video for better record keeping, it didn’t come out amazingly well due to the lack of a tripod but the audio is there to help guide things along. Unfortunately the BBC had forbidden recording of the video sections shown between discussion.

comiXology and IDW expand digital footprint

If you’re a digital comic fan you’ve no doubt heard about comiXology the comic reading app that allows you to read your favorite series anywhere you’re at. Today though they’ve worked with IDW to personalize the offering even more. Fans can now download direct apps for their favorite series on iTunes, given the support of comiXology to other platforms I wouldn’t put it out of consideration for Android users to get a similar option later.

Titles included in this mix:

New and old purchases through comiXology will sync to the designated app allowing you seamless integration of your existing collection to these apps. On top of that, IDW will launch digital releases on the same day as their print releases to make sure that people will not have to wait to read their favorite series. Pricing will remain full cover price value though for new comics. No further comment is out about old releases.

comiXology is really taking over the landscape, with options available on all major platforms and it being bundled with the Kindle Fire they’re taking the lead for ease of access to your favorite reads. I wouldn’t mind having a dedicated Doctor Who app or other specifics on my phone, hopefully they do something similar for Android in the future.
