Doctor Who (UK) (2005)

The Doctor looks and seems human. The Doctor is good-looking, sexy and witty, and could be mistaken for just another person in the street. But the Doctor is a Time Lord: a 909 year old alien with 2 hearts, part of a gifted civilization who mastered time travel with the TARDIS. The Doctor saves planets for a living and is very, very good at it. The human race will survive - but only with the Doctor's help.

Doctor Who - Thread II

Because the other thread was soooo long it was about time we had a new one plus since we have the new series starting soon now is a good time.

Here was my last post in the previous thread:

---

A little bit old news now, but still interesting...

'As part of the promotion for the fifth series of the new "Doctor Who" the production team is creating a 3D trailer which will air in cinemas before UK showings of Alice in Wonderland. Those of us outside the UK will just have to hear about this bit of excitement second hand.'

Not so, as there is a copy on YouTube here:

@katgrrrl,

I agree we've been spoiled.

Still not happy with BBC holding off episodes for a "special" in 2013.

I just hope we don't return to the Dr Who of the 1990s, while I learnt the wonderful world of star trek, etc, it was a very lean DW time... apologies to anyone who thinks the regeneration of the 8th doctor was a valuable exercise. :)

The BBC came out and said the reason there would be fewer Doctor Who in 2012 was because Stephen Moffatt was too busy writing scripts for Sherlock, however, Moffatt later stated on Twitter that writing Sherlock was not the reason why there would be fewer Doctor Wh in 2012.

Make of that what you will...

@paedr, there's no point starting a new thread mid season, make the request again at the end of this season :oD

Alex Kingston who plays River Song/Melody Pond really has reveled in the role and you can tell she really enjoys playing the part. The latest episode was a good conclusion to A Good Man goes to War.

@gedmen Yeah, you're right about the new thread mate. Should've asked him ages ago, but I forgot until recently. Ah,well, next year before the specials start again we'll get a new thread going. River Song/Melody Pond was a twist I hadn't thought of, but it was damned good!!

Possible spoiler







So was the Minatar and spaceship, supose to be based on the Greek Myth of the Labyrinth? I liked the concept, but the room with the creepy clown was a bit much.

@zandarblade The concept for the hotel with the shifting halls came first and the writer said that the logical choice for the monster was a Minotaur, presumably because of the Greek Myth of the Labyrinth.

oh please, the Christmas special has always been about sop.... it's meant to give you a bit of the old Christmas spirit and all... It was ok as they go.

T''was reading on wikipedia that Amy and Rory are leaving, it will be nice to get some fresh companions in there.

I miss David T, he brought a human quality. Matt is too big of his boots, I hope he doesn't keep saying how brilliant he is again.

Bring back the Doctor's daughter, I would love to see her again. It would be good to give Matt the sense that he is not the only brilliant one.

Just found this....Steve Moffat has announced that actress Karen Gillan and her screen husband Arthur Darvill, who plays Rory, will both be written out during the next series.

Oh great, so he'll spend some time alone, and then pick up yet another companion. I'd be cool if they would bring back an upgraded K9 like K10 or lol K13 and he can say he had to scrap Ten through Twelve LOL. He had to scrap them but they sort of became integrated with the TARDIS persona, creating some interesting new rooms? ROFL lol Ok, but seriously, are we gonna see him fight the newly reborn from the umpteenth death Daleks again?

Jenna-Louise Coleman. anyone?

If you don't know that name now, you certainly will in a few months time.
This bright, perky young lass is on board as Clara.

On board, indeed. Clara is the newest companion for The Doctor.

You can grab a peak at Clara along side Matt Smith at this link:

From the Den Of Geeks web site.

BBC America is to air four new Doctor Who documentaries in the run-up to the season seven opener…

Our US chums are in for a Who-related treat in the lead-up to Asylum of the Daleks, as BBC America will be airing four new one-hour-long Doctor Who documentaries this summer. Starting from next week, the four specials will air on BBC America to get viewers in the mood for the season seven opener.

Following on from last summer’s ‘Best Of…’ series, which took BBC America viewers through themes such as the Doctor’s companions and Doctor Who’s monsters, four docs themed on the show’s science, women, timey-wimey stuff, and destinations are all on their way. Broadcast dates and times are as follows:

The Science of Doctor Who – Saturday the 4th of August, 11pm.

The Women of Doctor Who – Saturday the 11th of August, 9pm.

The Timey-Wimey Stuff of Doctor Who – Saturday the 18th of August at 11pm.

The Destinations of Doctor Who – Saturday the 25th of August at 9pm.

Taken from Yahoo News

The BBC is working on a drama about the early days of Doctor Who to mark the hit show's 50th anniversary.

The 90-minute film will examine how the show was brought to life, looking at the key figures in the sci-fi series, which first aired on November 23, 1963.

The one-off BBC Two story, called An Adventure In Space And Time, is being written by Doctor Who scriptwriter Mark Gatiss.

Details about casting - including who will play the actor who first starred as the Doctor, William Hartnell - will be confirmed next year.

The BBC won acclaim two years ago for its drama The Road To Coronation Street which looked at the birth of the ITV soap, coinciding with the programme's half-century celebrations.

TV chiefs said the new programme would explore "all aspects" of the show and would cover "the many personalities involved in bringing the series to life".

Mark said: "This is the story of how an unlikely set of brilliant people created a true television original. And how an actor - William Hartnell - stereotyped in hard-man roles became a hero to millions of children.

"I've wanted to tell this story for more years than I can remember. To make it happen for Doctor Who's 50th birthday is, quite simply, a dream come true."

Executive producer Steven Moffat, who is in charge of Doctor Who at the BBC, said: "The story of Doctor Who is the story of television, so it's fitting in the anniversary year that we make our most important journey back in time to see how the Tardis was launched."
