Video: Sutekh the Parakeet Quotes Doctor Who

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to update the site so I thought I’d just add a quick post with a short video of my parakeet Sutekh The Destroyer, named after the classic Doctor Who villain of the same name from Pyramids of Mars.

Being the silly geek that I am, when I got him a few years ago I thought to myself “what’s the most ridiculous thing I could name a parakeet?” — given parakeets are small, harmless & friendly animals I figured the exact opposite would be an ancient and powerful god of evil, and so immediately thought of Sutekh from Pyramids.

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.

Friday, March 19th, 2010

New Doctor Who series producer Steven Moffat had a chat with the folks on BBC Breakfast this morning about the new series and has a few words to say to calm the fears of fans who are worried the new Doctor can’t be as good as the old one.

Moffat also talks about some of the returning monsters we’ll see this series, including the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels, and confirms the long-standing rumor that the reptilians you see in the first trailer are indeed the Silurians.

Tonight’s The Night Doctor Who Scene

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

As many UK residents know, the show Tonight’s The Night, which is hosted by Doctor Who’s own John Barrowan (a.k.a. Captain Jack Harkness) has been running a competition to win a chance to star in a special Doctor Who scene with Barrowman.

Well, the winner has been picked, and the scene aired last night on BBC One. You can find a YouTube video of the scene below, which features a surprise appearance by David Tennant. Considering filming for his final Doctor Who episodes has now wrapped, this is probably about the last thing Tennant filmed on the TARDIS set!

Weta Doctor Who Collectables Video

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Richard Taylor of the Weta Workshop has posted a video where he talks about the Weta line of Doctor Who collectables. I have to admit I’m drooling over a couple of these figures, especially the statue of the Roger Delgado Master from Terror of the Autons, and the statue of the fourth Doctor and Davros from Genesis of the Daleks… although the Ice Warrior helmet, and, frankly pretty much the entire line looks cool as hell.

Here’s the video of Mr. Taylor talking about how cool it was for him and the Weta Workshop to work on collectables for the show that it seems inspired many of them to go into the business in the first place… Doctor Who:

Mysterious Crater Appears Outside of New Doctor Who Exhibition In Coventry

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

auton smoking craterThe Coventry Telegraph reports that a mysterious crater has appeared overnight outside of the Coventry Transport Museum, just a day before the  opening of a new Doctor Who exhibition on Friday.

Reportedly, strange lights and smoke were seen to be emanating from the crater, and police have cordoned off the area while experts are being brought in to examine the scene.

Considering the timing, I can only assume the crater was caused by the auton control sphereAutons following their traditional pattern of spearheading their invasions with false meteors containing the Nestene Consciousness.

The consciousness is then used to animate various forms of plastic to deadly effect.

Doctor Who Monsters the Ood to Return in 2009

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

It seems that an Ood was spotted during filming of what is presumed to be the second of the 2009 Doctor Who specials, starring David Tennant as the Doctor and guest starring Lindsay Duncan as his companion.

Filming is currently going in Newport, Wales; earlier in the week filming took place in a quarry, an old standby of the classic series.

During the filming at the quarry, David Tennant was seen wearing an orange spacesuit much like the one he wore in the series 2 two-parter The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, which introduced the characters of the Ood.
