July 20th will be a big day for BBC America: it will have the season finale of Primeval, the premiere of Torchwood and Being Human, and the latest Doctor Who special. The Doctor Who Christmas Special will air on BBCA on June 26th, which is only 6 months later than it should have played (better than SciFi usually manages).

The new companion for Doctor Who has been announced, and i09 has a picture. I've seen her in one episode each of Doctor Who and Rebus, but can't remember her offhand.

Continuing the Doctor Who news, io9 lists some of the ways we can still see David Tennant as the Doctor after the specials end.

SciFi Wire has a little information on Paul, the next movie from Simon Pegg & Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead & Hot Fuzz).

Warehouse 13 is going to have some great guest stars from Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, Stargate: Atlantis, and others you'll recognize.

Hollywood is planning a new Buffy movie without Joss Whedon. More info at SciFi Wire. What can they be thinking? On another note from Joss Whedon, he is already looking for the right role for Summer Glau on Dollhouse.

SciFi Wire has a nice chart of all the network TV changes for genre shows next season (cancellations, renewals, time changes, and additions). has an article on the recent improvements to the Hubble telescope. They also have a picture of a galaxy cluster I think is great. has a list of what they consider the Top 10 Industry Changing Applications for computers. I might argue with a few, but it is interesting.

2 recent articles on stem cell advancements: cells developed to kill cancer cells and a company using a protein mixture to turn a patient's skin cells into stem cells for treatment.

SF Gate has a review of Spamalot, playing locally through July 5th. I want to see this.

Mon 5pm Greek
Mon 10pm Medium (season finale)
Thur 6pm Burn Notice (season premiere)
