The Day of the Doctor Trailer

19 Oct 2013

doctor-whos

The time is almost here and the trailer is a bit of tease but what else would you expect from Steven Moffat and crew.

The Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler will return in the special alongside the Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald. The Zygons and Daleks will also feature in the special as the enemies. When asked about the special on The Jonathan Ross Show, Matt Smith teased the word "paintings"
The exact plot of "The Day Of The Doctor" amounts to speculation and conjecture. Steven Moffat has stated, "Most things that have been said about the 50th are not true... Normally I am responsible for the disinformation and the rubbish rumors - I usually put them out myself, but I haven't needed to for this one."

Google maps tour of the Tardis

14 Aug 2013

tardis-egg

If you have not already heard there is a little easter egg for Google maps . Its the Tardis. If you pull up the Google map page and then type into the search box "Police Telephone Box" you will end up staring at a map of a London street where the Tardis had landed . By the way don't try Tardis . I did and came up with couple of other searches of legitimate businesses Go figure. Anyway if you don't want to type that in the search box here is the link for the map page itself (TARDIS LINK) . Which will take you directly outside the Tardis itself. Below I made a quick video which I uploaded to youtube using Quicktime to record the click motions and movements . Its not the greatest work I have done but it was fun doing and it does present you with an idea of what you can do with it.

IT’S OFFICIAL! Peter Capaldi Is the New Doctor

04 Aug 2013

BBC and the makers of Dr Who on live television moments ago just made the official announcement of who the new Doctor would be. And in a show that was fitting of the announcement filled with old companions and the 5th Doctor Peter Davison in front of a live audience ( lucky dogs) who were no less enthusiastic as trekkers are . The announcement was made. Peter Capaldi will be the 12th Doctor. My first impressions would not matter because like all whovians its a little bias just because of the the familiarity  of previous actors of the role. It has always taken me a few episodes to warm up to them . That said I will give it a while to set in . Though he has the look of the older more classic portrayals of the Doctor . Kind of reminds me a little of Tom Baker/Patrick Troughton in mannerisms . This of course is just a first impression that would most likely change as he sets his own tone on the character. Good luck to the new Doctor and farewell to Mat Smith.  Matt played the part brilliantly and like all of these transitions or in this case regenerations  its like saying goodbye to a friend that who you had allowed to enter your house on the weekends and shared his mad adventures with.  Sad but on the other hand its time to get acquainted with someone new . And that is an adventure in itself.

Matt Smiths Message to Fans

25 Jul 2013

Matt Smith - A Message From Detroit - Thank You

Matt Smith took a break form shooting in Detroit to film this message from his fans last month. He has really been low key on this and I think its been a real great ride with him as the Doctor . As you just get use to one Doctor as your favorite another must rise . Just like when Matt Smith took over for David Tenant this will not be any different . It will take some getting use to . But the beauty of the show is that its resilience in the story line and how they can make it work with different actors.

Still no word from what I can see on who the replacement would be. Any guesses ?
