Day 15: An Interview With Karen and the Babes

Posted by: Whochick

This quick video is from backstage in New York before the screening. Apparently our intrepid three would like to form a band called Karen and the Babes. The mind boggles.

Death And Costumes

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Let the speculation begin!

As this article states, Steven Moffat has said one of the series four major leads will die this season. But what is that you say, “But Doctor Geek, death in sci-fi is not the handicap it use to be, after all Rory died twice last year and went on to do really well.” I agree. One way this could go down, is let’s say, The Doctor is affected by something that will eventually kill him and the rest of the series is spent fighting the clock. This kinda makes sense given the few lines in the trailers, where The Doctor must trust the others without question and he acknowledges his life is in Amy’s hands. Or they could be dealing with a real death, one where the great reset button will not be pushed.

I doubt it would be The Doctor. Matt Smith is doing so well, and given the heck everyone goes through when casting the role, I doubt The BBC wants to go through that anytime soon. We have all seen River’s death, but as this series states often enough, time can be rewritten. It would be tragic if The Doctor looses her before their history is to really take off. It might be Rory or Amy but somehow I doubt it. If Amy lost Rory and remembered it this time, I think she would end her travels with The Doctor. To kill Rory would mean loosing both companions and I do not think that will happen yet.

What do you think?

Also, I just came across this wonderful new product line form Forbidden Planet. Doctor Who T-shirt Costumes. Take a look. They have a version for 4th Doctor to 7th Doctor. This would have been perfect for those long hot days at the convention but you still wanted to dress up. Neat no?

Day 20: Review of Daleks in Manhattan (10th Doctor)

Day 20: Review of Daleks in Manhattan (10th Doctor)
Daleks in Manhattan - Episode 3.4

Daleks in Manhattan is part one of a two. The title itself could be considered a spoiler, really, as it tells you where the episode takes place and who the baddies are. I wont say too much more here except that I enjoyed the variety of American accents that they came up with, and did you know that the guy who plays Solomon was in the first Highlander film? Right then, on to the review!

Day 21: Link Dump

Day 21: Link Dump

It’s time to clear out my browser tabs again. Stand by:

  • Swashbuckling spoilers can be found here.
  • News from the official site about casting and such – go here. I had the links sitting in my tabs…and they got too old. There’s one character returning that I shall be very interested to see.
  • Have you seen the new coat that the Doctor has next season?
  • Okay. I know that this isn’t really Doctor Who news specifically, but as at least one Doctor Who actor will be in The Hobbit, you may wish to check out the official Hobbit Blog – http://www.thehobbitblog.com/.
  • Gareth Roberts is reportedly writing a novelization of Shada. (I wonder how many bits in his book will look like Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, as that’s where Douglas Adams recycled some of his material.)

Full Trailer for Series 6

Posted by: Dr. Geek

If you are like me, you are probably counting the days to the start of the new series but at the same time trying to not get your hopes up. Well the new trailer for series 6 is not going to help. I think this is the best trailer Doctor Who has presented yet.

Day 26: Review of Gridlock (10th Doctor)
Gridlock - Episode 3.3

Ah, Gridlock. The one with the sneaky Bad Wolf reference that threw folks into a tizzy. The one that not many folks liked, but contains so many bits that get referenced often…

Hey Look! Zeppelins! *sneaks away*

Day 27: Review of The Shakespeare Code (10th Doctor)

Posted by: Whochick

Day 27: Review of The Shakespeare Code (10th Doctor)
The Shakespeare Code - Episode 3.2

I really enjoy this episode of Doctor Who, and I would gladly watch it several times in a row. Perhaps this has something to do with my Shakespeare obsession. Who can say? This episode even has a fellow playing a lute in it. I’ve always wanted to play the lute. Maybe I should have kept up with those guitar lessons all of those years ago. Sigh. All right, enough with my fixation on things Renaissance. (Did I mention that I was once a Medieval Studies major?) This episode is fun and full of pop culture references. What do you think of it?
