Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (5 videos)

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith appeared tonight on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, making the first appearance of a current (or any?) Doctor on a US talk show.

First, here’s the intro to the episode:

Before the Doctor was in the house, Chris Hardwick (the Nerdist) stopped by, decked out in a fourth Doctor scarf knit by Tara Wheeler. Below you can see Chris & Craig geeking out and talking Doctor Who:

And then the moment we all were waiting for, Matt Smith on the Late Late Show:

Third New Clip From Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Shown on CBBC at 11:30 GMT – not half an hour ago – got to love the speed of the Internet.

This brand new clip features the newly regenerated eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond (presumably no relation to the duck pond in the clip) debating whether the pond in question can really be a duck pond even if it never has ducks.

The two are interrupted as the Doctor clutches his chest as he seems to be having some kind of physical problem with the regeneration (which we know from The Christmas Invasion can take fifteen hours to “set”).

New Doctor Who Series Trailer & Clips From Jonathan Ross Show

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Matt Smith appeared today on the Jonathan Ross show in the UK. For those of us who missed the broadcast (or who, like me, couldn’t see it due to a pesky ocean being in the way) I’m collecting the clips here.

First off we have a new version of the Doctor Who series 5 trailer (or series 31, or “series fnarg” as some people are calling it). This is substantially similar to the second BBC trailer I posted a few days ago, but has a slightly different voiceover and a few new bits of footage for us to pause and geek over.

Video – BBC America Doctor Who Series 5 Trailer

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

BBC America has started airing their own trailer for the new series of Doctor Who, featuring Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond. This new trailer includes new footage not seen in the recently released BBC trailer, so more freeze-frame fun for us fans to over analyze the footage to tide us over until the series begins in April.

From the voice over:

“The Universe is vast and complicated. Sometimes, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.

All of time and space… Everything that ever happened or ever will… Where do you want to start?”

Video – New Doctor Who Trailer For Series 5

Friday, March 19th, 2010

The new Doctor Who Series 5 (or 31, depending on how you’re counting) trailer which was revealed at the end of yesterday’s the Eleventh Hour premiere in Cardiff has made it onto YouTube. It features a voice-over from new companion Amy Pond which leads into a voice over from the Doctor.

There’s a montage of highlights from the new series including Daleks, a space dogfight, “Pete’s World” Cybermen, and another worrying shot of the Doctor holding a gun.  I’ve added the video below, as well as a video of the 30 second scene from the beginning of The Eleventh Hour below that.

3 Videos from Premiere of Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour BBC Press Launch

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Very exciting: the first episode of Matt Smith’s first series of Doctor Who has premiered in Wales at a BBC press launch today, March 18th.  A number of clips from the premiere (or related to it) have been posted to YouTube already and I’ve gathered several here for you to view.

Warning: contains minor spoilers for the episode and the new series, but probably nothing you haven’t heard already.

First, a short intro interview with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, leading straight into a short clip of the new Doctor in action in “The Eleventh Hour”:

Interview With Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith During Filming for His First Series

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

The Guardian has posted an interesting interview with Matt Smith on their website a few days ago which is well worth reading. This is the first extensive interview with Matt Smith I’ve seen online and gives a few tantalizing looks into how he will be playing the eleventh Doctor.

I’ve had a really good feeling about Matt Smith as the Doctor since first seeing “The Eleventh Doctor” confidential last year (see video below), and this interview as well as the interview with Steven Moffat in the March 2010 issue of Doctor Who Magazine are leaving me very eager to see the new series.

Neil Gaiman to Write New Doctor Who Episode

Monday, February 8th, 2010

There's been a rumor floating around for ages that award-winning author Neil Gaiman was going to be writing a new Doctor Who episode. The rumor has finally been confirmed, and it seems he will be writing an episode for Matt Smith's second series.

Neil has been a Doctor Who fan since he was three, and after many months of deliberately vague and noncommittal statements, finally revealed "it's quite possible that I might have written an episode. And if I had, it would originally have been called "The House of Nothing". But it definitely isn't called that any more."

Former Doctor Who Tom Baker To Return in 2010

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor to return to Doctor WhoThe Daily Express is reporting that a BBC mole has told them that Tom Baker will be returning to the series after over twenty-eight years to appear alongside the 11th Doctor Matt Smith.

Tom Baker played the fourth Doctor, from 1974-1981, and is widely considered to be the most popular and iconic of the classic series Doctors, only surpassed in worldwide popularity by David Tennant in recent years.

The BBC has not officially announced this, and even if it’s true are not likely to announce it anytime soon since Smith won’t be taking over the role until 2010.

TARDIS Interior to Get a Redesign to Go With the New Doctor

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

tardis console room series 1The Telegraph is reporting that the current TARDIS interior will be given “a complete overhaul” before the end of David Tennant’s run, just in time for new Doctor Matt Smith to take over.

The details are a little sparse at this point, but the redesign was the idea of new producer Stephen Moffat, and has been described as “the most high-tech, intricate TARDIS ever.”

Personally, I really like the current interior, but wouldn’t mind seeing something a *little* closer to the traditional roundels and columns, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see before I pass judgement.
