    I recorded it and have watched it three times already. Absolutely marvelous. I really wished now that I had got tickets. I am hoping that the BBC release a full DVD of the evening.

    I really hope this will be released as a DVD; we watched it on BBC yesterday and it was amazing! If only we could have been there, the atmosphere must have been incredible. We’ll definitely look out for the next one in the UK.

    I think it’s going to be on the red-button. If you have Freeview then try channel 301. Just not sure if it will be live.

    Me too booboo! Maybe Tom Baker or Peter Davison would be good. Maybe even David Tennant because he presented the first ever Doctor Who Prom! 4 Days to go!

    I heard that they will be announcing it…lets face it, they have to start the filming soon so it will get out anyway – they announced Matt Smith 12 months before he appeared on our screens…there is now less than 6 months til this fella appears on out TV.

    No, it’s far too early and isn’t really the place to do it.

    They don’t broadcast it until later in the year. The 2008 one was broadcast in Jan09 and the 2010 one in Sep10.
