Above is the new design for the return of classic “Doctor Who” monster to this year. As you’ll note it draws heavily on the design (below) from classic series . Classic series fans are especially excited about this design.
Although purists point out that the new design lacks the clamp shaped hands, the fur trim, and the pear shaped body.
What do you think? Is the new design a great way of honoring the past? Too faithful? Or, for those clamp hand fans out there, not faithful enough?
Great actor. Great Doctor. After the jump, a few of the better tribute videos to the 9th Doctor!
For some weeks there had been rumors about a new Tardis interior. Well, the rumors are true. And here (above) it is. What do you think? Too green? Too Star Trek? Not enough roundels? Not Edwardian enough? Something else? Offer you thoughts in the comments section.
And, after the jump, some images of Tardises past.
Here’s the first official photograph of Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor and companion. Coleman will take over as the Doctor’s full time companion in this year’s Christmas special. Little is known about who Ms. Coleman will be playing. We don’t know where she’s from. Earth? Another planet? Another reality? We don’t know when she’s form. The past? The present? The future? We don’t even know her name. Though some evidence points to her first name being “Clara”. Though the BBC has yet to confirm that. So for now we’re just going to have to satisfy ourselves with official pictures like this one. And unofficial ones snapped by fans during location shoots.
And you’ll also notice if you look closely at this photo that Matt is sporting a slightly different look as the Doctor. New frock coat and waistcoat. But he’s still got the bow tie. Because, as we all know by now, bow ties are cool.
Straight from the “Doctor Who” convention floor in Wales, here’s a look at the first series 7 trailer. Undoubtedly, better versions of this video will surface in the days ahead. But, for those who have to see everything first, no matter the quality, here it is!
It’s official former “Emmerdale” and “Waterloo Road” alum Jenna-Louise Coleman will be playing the companion in the next series of “Doctor Who”. This is the announcement as reported on the official “Doctor Who” Twitter feed:
Jenna-Louise Coleman announced as the new Doctor Who companion. More to come….
So far fan reaction is muted. Partially because many are unfamiliar with her work. But also because there was a build up suggesting this companion would be different. And many feel this choice does not live up to that promise. UPDATE: Here’s an interview with Jenna:
Tomorrow Steven Moffat will hold a press conference to announce the new “Doctor Who” companion. And right now the smart is on relative unknown Aisling Loftus (above). Her highest profile role to date was as “Arrietty Clock” in recent BBC adaptation of the classic children’s book “The Borrowers” which aired in late 2011. And she certainly fits Daily Mail writer’s tweet:
BBC source has confirmed to me they will unveil new Doctor Who assistant tmrow. She is “pretty” but “not household name”.
But Loftus is not the only name being foisted. Rumors continue that comedian Miranda Hart may have role in the upcoming series, possibly as a companion. While others still cling to the notion that Sophia Myles will return in her role as Madame Pompadour. Now as a full time companion. There is a lot of evidence mounting up that she will play a role in the new series. Our pals at Bleeding Cool have a nice rundown of that here. But like them we’re highly skeptical of this.
Who would you like to be the Doctor’s next Tardis teammate? Share your thoughts in the comment section. And, don’t worry, we’ll be here tomorrow with the news and our assessment as soon as it breaks. In fact, we may be back before then, if any little birds whisper in our ears.
In series six the Doctor wore a cowboy hat. It appears series seven looks to up the ante. With an entire episode set in the old west. The episode entitled “The Gunslinger” was written by Toby Whithouse. It is due to start shooting in Spain later this month. Rumors suggest this show is not merely a Western but done in the style of a Spaghetti Western.
We’ve been a bit underwhelmed by series six of “Doctor Who”. But the moment below is one of favorites in this or any other year. It even inspired us to do the photoshoppery above inspired by this poster. But none of this will make sense to you until you watch the following:
