Dr. Who

Wow! This one was called "Utopia" and is apparently a 2 or 3 parter. It ended with quite a cliff-hanger tonight! Plus it had Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) in it. He is crossing over from Torchwood for the last 3 episodes of the season. He always brings humor and a larger than life matinee idol kind of thing with him. I like this series a lot...I really do. :bounce:

This was the big finale and it really didn't let me down. Dr. Who was aged first by 100 years (in last weeks eppie) and 900 years in tonight's...left him as a little tiny guy. But still cute.
The villain in this piece was such fun to watch. Even the Dr. cried when he refused to regenerate himself. So now the Dr. really is the last "Time Lord"...don't know what they can do to top this...but it'll be back with David Tennant for 4 episodes next season and then a full season after that.

The reason that there will be a 4 episode season is that David Tennant is off to do a season at one of the famous Shakespearian theaters in England. But they still want him as the Dr. so they are taking what they can get and returning to a full season schedule in 09.

God, that finale was just crushing. Not as bad as first trip to Bad Wolf Bay...that one just makes me cry every time. I really did like this one tho...it brought things full circle, with everyone in. Plus, there's somewhat of a glimpse of the future of things. Can't believe there will be only 4 specials between now and 09.

My library has all of the old old Doctor Who seasons so, I suppose that'll have to be how I'll get my fix....it's not David Tennant tho. Hope Torchwood and Sarah Jane come back sooner. pace

The Royal Shakespeare theatre has put in place a rule that the actors can only sign things associated with the RS Theatre or the role. No Sci fi (Dr. Who) photos are to be signed at the stage door. :D

Smart thing...between the Trekkies and the Who's the actors would never get out of the theatre.

The Shakespeare festival is in full swing here, I've got tickets for five shows starting next week. Very excited here. biggrin

That sounds great. Are they doing Henry V. I loved the DVD of Kenneth Branagh doing that. Did you know Christian Bale was in that...as a child actor?

The 11th Doctor begins work: Matt Smith is in the house
20/07/2009 . Source: Jessica Martin


Production, we are told, has started today on the new series of Doctor Who, in which BBC One viewers will meet the 11th Doctor and his companion - Amy Pond (aka Karen Gillan) - for the very first time. Matt Smith of Party Animals fame plays the latest incarnation of our favourite time lord.

Accompanying The Doctor on his further adventures in time is a new companion Amy Pond, played by Scottish actress Karen Gillan (The Kevin Bishop Show), who will first meet The Doctor in episode one of the new series.

New show-runner and long-running Doctor Who fan Steven Moffat has developed this series and, as Lead Writer and Executive Producer, will be responsible for the overall creative direction of the show, as well as plot and character arcs.
Moffat told the Nest, "And here it is, the big moment - the new Doctor, and his new best friend. And here's me, with the job I wanted since I was seven - 40 years to here! If I could go back in time and tell that little boy that one day all this would happen, he'd scream, call for his mum and I'd be talking to you now from a prison cell in 1969. So probably best not then. Matt and Karen are going to be incredible, and Doctor Who is going to come alive on Saturday nights in a whole new way - and, best of all, somewhere out there a seven-year-old is going to see them, fall in love and start making a 40-year plan..."

Upon arriving on set in Cardiff, for his first day of filming, Smith told SFcrowsnest.com, "I feel very privileged and proud to be part of this iconic show. The scripts are brilliant and working alongside Karen, Steven and the rest of the crew is an inspiration because their work ethic and passion for the show is so admirable. I'm excited about the future and all the brilliant adventures I get to go on as the Doctor."

Piers Wenger, Executive Producer and Head of Drama, BBC Wales, added: "The scripts for the new series are every bit as funny, thrilling, scary and imaginative as you'd expect from the man who brought us The Empty Child and Blink. There's a strange and perfect alchemy between Steven and Matt Smith and the next few months are going to be riveting as that relationship starts to emerge on screen. Steven always says he's been waiting to do this job since he was seven. But it's actually the Doctor who has been waiting for him."

The new series follows three Doctor Who specials starring David Tennant which will transmit later this year.

cheers

All great ideas were crazy before they were brilliant. Alexander Bell thought he could talk over copper wires, and even worse, Marconi thought he could send messages through thin air! When David Sarnoff wanted to launch the first radio network (now NBC), one investor ridiculed him by asking, "Who would pay to send a message to no one in particular?" Jules Verne thought people might one day travel under the ocean or, even more ridiculous, fly in outer space. How crazy was that!? ~~From Success May Require Weirdness

Sigh...I don't like change. I'm sure I'll get used to the new boy wonder....but I want my David Tennant.

Accuse me of being shallow, but one requirement of whether or not I can watch Dr. Who regularly is who his female sidekick is. Lately they have been found wanting. But this lady looks to be a step up.... cheers
