3 Preview Clips From Doctor Who: Victory of the Daleks

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

At the end of last week’s episode, the Beast Below, the Doctor gets a call on the new TARDIS phone from a certain historical Prime Minsiter of Britian, who needs the Doctor’s help.

Since then, the BBC has released 3 teaser clips from Victory of the Daleks, the first Dalek story to feature the eleventh Doctor (but I imagine not the last).

In this clip, the Doctor introduces Amy Pond to Winston Churchill who apparently has known the Doctor (and coveted the TARDIS) for some time.

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”).

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”:

Discovering Barbara Wright via The Hathor Legacy

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Just found an interesting article written by Jennifer Kesler on The Hathor Legacy blog. The article is written by someone who is new to Doctor Who, and unlike most new fans, has never seen the modern series.

She decided to start with the beginning, and so has been watching the earliest episodes of the show from the 1960s (as well as a brief detour into the first of the "Dalek Movies" which are definitely not proper Doctor Who, but she caught on to this quickly).

David Tennant To Appear in a Two Part Sarah Jane Adventures Story This Fall

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

The Tenth Doctor, Sarah Jane and K9The BBC Press Office is has announced that David Tennant will be appearing in two episodes of the upcoming series of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

In an interview (see video below), departing Doctor Who producer Russel T. Davies described it as “not just a cameo appearance. It’s not just like he turns up at the end in the TARDIS… It’s a proper story where the Doctor gets involved… he meets Sarah Jane’s gang, the stakes are really high and… it’s like a treat for those who are missing Doctor Who on the screen.”

John Simm and Bernard Cribbins Confirmed for Doctor Who Specials. Donna and others to Follow?

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Bernard Cribbins & John Simm on Doctor Who setWell, it’s official. Not only is Bernard Cribbins appearing in one of the final David Tennant stories, but on-set photos also show John Simm has returned to Doctor Who! The image at right (credit for the photo goes to alun.vega) shows Cribbins and Simm passing each other on-set.

Cribbins played Donna’s grandfather Wilf Mott in series 4, and of course John Simm appeared in series 3 as The Master. So far, this substantially confirms recent rumors that Tennant’s final stories would feature a return of Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Rose Tyler (again!), Wilf Mott, and the Master.

New K9 Series First Trailer Released

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

As has been previously mentioned, K9 is getting his own series this year which will air on Australia’s Network Ten as well as the digital channel Jetix/Disney XD in the UK this fall. I have not seen anything confirming whether it will air in the US.

After seeing the new look for K9, hearing John Leeson will not be doing his voice, and from other details of  the series, I have had serious doubts it would be worth watching. I have to say the trailer below makes me, if possible, even more dubious about the whole project. Take a look:

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.
