Female vs Male Sci Fi Fans
Actually, that's not as terribly surprising as it sounds -- CONvergence is very gender balanced locally, and while some pockets of fandom are more male dominated than others (local Doctor Who fandom is currently predominately male, for example), over all, it's pretty well mixed.

The Lost Sequence
Doug Shaw has cracked the lost sequence.
Not that it explains anything about the series though.....

Doctor Who wins three UK TV awards
And amazingly, it beat out US television series Desperate Housewives as well.
Meanwhile, there's no sign of it getting any US airing....

Because one blog isn't enough...
I haven't used it much yet, and I suppose it's more for my own benefit as anything else...

Predicting the future
For example, I think this should trend Doctor Who against Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant.
Or how about Doctor Who vs Battlestar Galactica?
(Actually, I don't think this is fair, because Doctor Who gets a lot of false positives as they're both words that are farely common, even if you specifically look for the phrase "Doctor Who", and not just those two words seperately. Though if you look at the data you know that it does spike when there's some sort of news event connected to the series, like when filming started or the last episode aired.]

The problem with BBC America
But would I want a network that aired Spaced (which admittedly wasn't a BBC series, but BBC America is theoretically about the best of all British television, after all) and the new Doctor Who? You bet.
Though admittedly, my understanding is that the problem is that the UK side wants Doctor Who on a station with wider reach than BBC America. Whether or not that's feasible is a completely different question, no matter how brilliant the new series is.
