    A brand new Doctor Who thread for the modern man about town.

    There were a few series 7 based comments in the old thread here, but frankly we need a new one at this point to avoid that pagination BULLSHIT.

    So, that Mark Williams, eh? He’s in Doctor Who, isn’t he?

    What was that other SF programme he was in?

    Ah, the Pagination problem. The only thing that denies G&T it’s ‘really very good’ award.

    And by the looks of it, we have a Western filmed in Spain too.

    Sophia Myles is in Spain at the moment. She’s been tweeting that her luggage hadn’t arrived. I hadn’t made any Who-related connections, but Kasterborous.com posted something about it, and it’s certainly a possibility.

    Okay, she wouldn’t be playing Reinette, but actors used to play multiple roles in various stories all the time in classic Who. It’s only the fact that nowadays, stories are out on DVD a matter of weeks after they air, so actors are inextricably linked with single characters.

    Okay, so apparently, there’s going to be a big Who announcement tomorrow, and it would seem to be announcing the new companion. Haven’t seen anything 100% official yet, mind, just this on Doctor Who News; http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2012/03/dwn2003121700008-new-co-star-to-be.html

    Doctor Who Online have also Tweeted:

    Who’s looking forward to tomorrow’s reported announcement of the new #DoctorWho companion?

    Apparently its a ‘she’ and she isn’t a household name… make of that what you will ;)

    I can confirm that there is a press announcement tomorrow morning. People should keep an eye on @bbcdoctorwho tomorrow – from Edward Russell

    So, er…that all sounds interesting.

    It would’ve been nice to have a male companion, mind. Be interesting if the new co-star turned up at the convention in Cardiff at the weekend.

    Incidentally, I’d quite like it to be Charlotte Ritchie (Oregon in Fresh Meat), she’d be good. It won’t be, of course, but I just thought I’d make my choice known now, just in case it *does* turn out to be her.

    Anyhoo: Press conference, 10:30am tomorrow.

    You never know. After all, who would have guessed at Karen Gillan, the fit redhead from the Kevin Bishop Show?

    However, it seems a few people already know that it’s Aisling Loftus, the girl who played Arriety in ‘The Borrowers’ at Christmas (which, of course, also starrted a certain 9th Doctor…;)). Personally I think she’s sweetly magnificent.

    The Sun reckons it’s Jenna-Louise Coleman, who’s in Emmerdale. Apparently.

    She’s a rather handsome lady.

    If you’re not already, following @bbcdoctorwho and @dwmtweets is the best thing to do in situations like this. But this from the Beeb’s feed is good to know.

    There will be 6 episodes this year, including the Xmas Special. Then 8 next year. Jenna’s character will first be seen at Xmas.

    ADDITIONAL: Damn you, Moffat!

    “Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in ep 5. Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time”

    Is it too late to say that these posts may contain spoilers, btw, or is that a given?

    Sounds like it. What are you going to do with her until she runs away?

    >Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in ep 5.Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time

    So it sounds like the Weeping Angels won’t be using their elegant “suck the life-force from your unlived days” ability in this story and will instead be using their incredibly dull “break your neck while you’re not looking” ability.

    Moffat may be in danger of overdoing the Angels. I know Blink was hugely well received and a classic, but if we get an appearance from the Angels every year it begins to feel like Moffat is really specifically trying to imprint his mark on the shows future ie. establish the Angels as regular foes up there with the likes of the Daleks and Cybermen etc. Which makes it feel forced rather than organic.

    But to me what worked best about Blink (at that time anyway) was the one-off nature of the whole thing, this little story in a bubble. The weeping angels were a genius creation, but there’s not really much need for a second or third or fourth go around with them, in my view anyway.

    The Angels haven’t been overused in the show itself. It’s the amount that people bang on about them that makes it seem so.

    Btw there’s no chance he’ll kill Amy or Rory.

    Jenna-Louise Coleman is a great choice!

    #116023

    I honestly think he’ll kill Amy off. Rory won’t die, not again. Karen Gillan wants a definite end for the character, and if, when we reach the *60th* Anniversary, she’s changed her mind and wants to make a reappearance, we’re talking about a SF show that deals with time travel…

    Somehow they will end up raising baby Melody. I would say in a parallel world but we’re not gonna get that again, are we?

    I keep thinking that the overly-complex background of River Song (the part where she is ‘Mel’, Amy and Rory’s friend wtf Moffat?????) is gonna have another spin on it where things are much more straightforward.

    That’s what I was thinking of, although I thought it was a different episode. The last series all seems to merge into messes in my mind.

    A selection of stupid questions asked at the convention today:

    – Will you make a series with the 8th Doctor about the time war?
    – Which Hogwarts house would the cast like to be in?
    – Did Molly tell John in Sherlock?
    – Why is the show is slightly racist?

    That trailer *is* doing that rounds, yes, though it’s pretty poor quality, and I can’t understand a lot of what’s being said. Needless to say, I’ll be up early tomorrow to watch it properly. :)

    All those questions were greated with groans. There were more, those are just the ones that came to mind. There were lots of self proclaimed experts too, claiming Delgado died last year, Ainley was the first master, Tennant is the longest serving doctor, Smith has no good episodes just average ones, and the all time classic “I hate Steven Moffat, he’s awful and can’t write charecters” followed by them shovelling praise on Blink.

    > followed by them shovelling praise on Blink.

    While it IS overrated, it IS proof of what genius he used to be capable of with Doctor Who. Now his best efforts are reserved for Sherlock.

    As for Matt Smith…there’s still places he’s yet to go as the Doctor, a level he hasn’t quite achieved. I want to see Moffat test him in series 7. Who knows, maybe it will take the Ponds leaving for him to really come into his own.

    On top of the usual terribleness though, there’s now also the rather substainsal female audience who screamed at everything yesterday. It’s an interesting combination to say the least.

    Alright Alex, we get it, you’ve been on the TARDIS. Stop rubbing it in. ;)

    In other news:

    I’m liking a couple of the SPOILERish s7 rumours that are going round at the mo. First off – Mark Williams may be playing Rory’s Dad. Judging by his attire in the trailer, that seems fairly plausible, and great casting, but then one has to wonder why we didn’t see Rory’s family at the wedding…

    Also, the possibility that the Statue of Liberty may be a Weeping Angel. That sounds great (There’s always someone looking at her, right?), although she’d be one large Angel…

    I can imagine the opening of the episode involving the Statue of Liberty disappearing.

    The Doctor investigates and realises there can be only one explanation, that the Statue has been an Angel all along. He even stood in front of it with Martha Jones that time and never noticed… Newspaper reports show a huge event that happened the day before which, for the first time ever, drew every single person’s eyes away from the Statue, allowing her to move.

    Moffat heavily hinted that that’s who he is playing on Sunday, suggesting the wedding was a bit of a cock up there because of it.

    Ah right. I didnt know anyone else from G&T was going. Though when I was waiting in a line I did see a guy on a lower level point me out to his girlfriend, mouthing what I believe was Gazpacho Soup, but could just have been him saying, ‘See him? What a cunt.’
