And the New Doctor is…

Posted by: Whochick

And the New Doctor is…

The Eleventh Doctor has been announced, and he shall be 26 year old Matt Smith. (Mind you, by the time he premieres, he’ll be 27.) Smith (Ha! A Doctor who really is named Smith!) has previously appeared in Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North, and Secret Diary of a Call Girl, among other things. You can check out his IMDB listing here.

So, there you go. The youngest ever Doctor will appear via the usual regeneration scene on Easter of 2010. It looks like that is when they are playing the last of David Tennant’s four specials. The next series will then start a few weeks later. What do you think? I’m off to watch Ruby in the Smoke so I can see for myself what sort of actor he is. I’ve been meaning to watch it anyway.

Planet of Who?

Posted by: Whochick

Planet of Who?

Since it premiered in 1963, Doctor Who has had a variety of interesting episode titles. After all of this time, though a few patterns have emerged. Starting the episode title with a definite article is especially popular. Another common word is, of course, Dalek. A very frequently used format is “The *** of ***.” The word that feels to me like it appears most often, however, is “Planet.” Not too surprising, considering the nature of the show, but still. Let’s see how many episodes actually have it in the title.

The Timelords / KLF – Doctorin’ The Tardis

Posted by: Whochick

I recently ran across this oldie (but goodie) again, and I thought that you all might like to be reminded of it. (I hope that the person controlling that home-made Dalek was okay…)

Advent Calendar 2008 – Days 23-25

Posted by: Whochick

Okay. Day 23 brings us a “Video Jigsaw.” If you solve the puzzle, you get to see another clip of the episode. Just so you know, though, the clip that you get is part of the clip seen during the Children in Need special.

With Day 25 the folks putting together the Advent(ure) Calendar sought to get us up to speed on Donna Noble’s storyline in the span of ninety seconds. I’m not too pleased with how they glossed over the ending, but overall the video is informative and amusing.

Advent Calendar 2008 – Day 21 & 22

Posted by: Whochick

Day 21 brings us ever closer to Christmas day with a wee clip of the episode itself. Is that lady flirting with a Cyberman?

The Next Doctor - New Teaser Clip

So…Russell and Julie let a couple of things slip about next year’s specials in this bit of a podcast from Day 22. There’s a two-part climax? What to the Nimon have to do with anything? Right. I have to go re-watch The Horns of Nimon now…

Help the Doctor to get the TARDIS back in Day 19‘s game: Jobsworth Judoon. Really, now. Impounding the TARDIS is just rude.

Day 20‘s offering in an Episode Guide for The Next Doctor. Need yet more desktop wallpapers or have an interest in the Fear Forecast for the Christmas episode? Yes? Then be sure to stop by.

Advent Calendar 2008 – Day 16 & 17

Posted by: Whochick

The gift for Day 16 of the Doctor Who Advent Calendar is a bit of Murray Gold’s music. It’s a U.N.I.T. cue from the Sontaran Stratagem. Listen and enjoy.

The ComicMaker has relaunched for Day 17. Heck, it’s even working for folks outside of the UK now. (Or…at least it was when I tested it. Yes!)

Advent Calendar 2008 – Days 10-15

Posted by: Whochick

And the Advent Calendar continues…

Do you have a Doctor Who Screensaver? If not, or if your current screensaver has gotten a bit old, why not try Day 10‘s Cyberman screensaver?

Day 11 brings us part 2 of Number 1, Gallows Gate Road by Rupert Laight. Can the Doctor defeat a lurking alien presence?

Think you know all there is to know about those metal monstrosities known as The Cybermen? Test your knowledge with Day 12‘s CyberQuiz.

What better way to watch The Next Doctor, than wearing Day 13‘s Cybershade Face Mask? Okay…it may make it a bit more difficult to see the screen, but it’s the principle of the thing.

Take a peek behind the scenes of The Next Doctor with WhoSpy on Day 14. Picture number four makes me wonder what Victorian “Men in Black” would wear. Hmmm…

Day 15 offers us another trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special – The Next Doctor. Oooo! It looks even better, now.

You Know You’ve Watched Too Much Who When…

Posted by: Whochick

A Cybermat

You’re driving along and pass something lying in the middle of the road. No matter how much you try, you can’t make the item look like anything other than a Cybermat to you.

I swear. It looked just like a Cybermat.

(Yes, I then had to explain what a Cybermat was to my passenger.)
