The 11th Doctor is in (soon)

The new season (series, whatever) of "Doctor Who" has begun filming and the BBC has released a first glimpse of Matt Smith in costume as the 11th Doctor.

He's apparently going for some sort of Mayberry look. It's hard to say from this angle, but it looks like something has been done about that atrocious haircut he had in his initial press photos earlier this year.

Smith has some big sneakers to fill. David Tennant still has three episodes left to air. The next installment, "The Waters of Mars," comes in November. His final two-parter will air on Christmas Day and New Year's Day (guest starring Timothy Dalton and featuring the return of John Simm as the Master as well several of Tennant's past companions).

Ain't It Cool News says there are rumors Tennant is in line to play Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit."

ADK Adventures

I've been too busy to provide a full write-up on our vacation since returning a week ago.

Fortunately, Kris took care of that over on the Rooney Train.

I did get around to posting the video up above. I also shared some pictures on Facebook. Note: you don't have to be a registered Facebook user to view them.

Happy Fourth of July (a couple of days early). God bless America -- and keep it safe from weirdos.
