Dr Who watch on the Web

25 Dec 2009


The countdown is still ticking on the end of David Tennants run of the Dr and there is so much chatter on the web that this is becoming a weekly event on Scifiology.

As Doctor Who's David Tennant exits, the Master is reborn

(complete story at Sci Fi Wire )

nd at the end, Tennant regenerates into the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. Just how remains to be seen, but it's hard to imagine the Master isn't responsible for his demise in some way.

"I'm not one of those actors who would have liked to have played Doctor Who," Simm said in an exclusive interview with SCI FI Wire. "I'm much more attracted to the dark side of characters, so this is perfect for me. The Master is perfect, perfect for me."

The age-old battle between the last two Time Lords has been going on through much of the Doctor Who series (since season eight in 1971, during the first round of Doctor Who). These children of Gallifrey have battled through space and time, the Master seeking to control the universe, the Doctors trying to stop him.

This one I can not wait till to bad my DVR has only 18 hours of recording room .

USA gets 46 hour Who Marathon

(complete story at Dr Who News Page)

Following its ratings success with The Waters of Mars, BBC America is broadcasting nothing but Doctor Who for the first 46 hours of 2010. Almost the entire run of David Tennant episodes will be shown starting with the Christmas Invasion at midnight New Year's Day and going right through to The End of Time Part Two ending at 10pm on 2nd January.

And if you really want ot get some good news of what is happening BBC Dr Who home page is where it is at.

The End of Time

(Complete story at BBC )

The End of Time, Part Two is on BBC One on New Years Day at 6.40pm. Watch an exclusive clip from this amazing episode by visiting the videos section on the right where you'll also find exclusive videos featuring the stars! Or enjoy some of the Tenth Doctor's greatest moments by checking out the Related Content below....

BBC is a week ahead of us in the states. But that is ok. This weekend we get part 1 of the End of Time where the Master returns and is surely the catalyst for the regeneration of the Dr.

(Edited : I realized where the source of this next video came from and made sure it got the proper intro as opposed to the one I had previously written )

Well I found a Youtube preview of the part 1 .This one is sponsored by children in need and hopefully it will be up for a while because it gives a sneak peek into the episode and does it better then a trailer. Plus its a good cause and that is what counts the most.


Tennants Last hurah as the Dr

21 Dec 2009

David Tennant time as the Dr draws nearer and nearer. The first of the final episodes aired last night on BBC America with the Waters of Mars. An eerie look on what must go through the time lords brain as he is inserted into events in time that are fixed. Knowing the out come and being helpless to change it and when he does defy the laws of time and interferes with fixed points there are serious consequences . This sets up the chain reaction that will ultimately lead to the Drs  death which means his regeneration into a whole new Dr . But that is in the near future and lacking a time machine I can not tell you what will happen. However we can settle on the next best thing and post links to articles that have to do with the Time Lords last outings and behind the scene interviews with the writer and the actor.

Timeout with 'Doctor Who's' David Tennant

(Complete story at the Los Angeles Times )

For another two weeks, David Tennant is still the space-time-traveling Doctor in " Doctor Who," the British sci-fi series that airs here on BBC America. After a year in which the show appeared only sporadically, as a series of "specials," the end of the Tennant tenancy arrives all in a rush: "The Waters of Mars," his penultimate adventure, premieres tonight, with the two-part finale, "The End of Time," beginning Dec. 26. By the end of Part 2, which airs Jan. 2 -- and this is not a spoiler -- he will have died and regenerated into the form of his replacement, Matt Smith.

Screenwriter Russell T Davies explains why he leapt at the chance of reinventing Doctor Who – and why, with a Christmas Special imminent, it’s now time to bid him farewell.

Beginning of the end for Doctor Who's David Tennant

(complete story at thestar.com )

It's the beginning of the end for Doctor Who.

Which for science-fiction television's longest-living character (at the time of his debut in 1963, Star Trek was still three years away) always means a new beginning. When The Doctor dies, which he has already done nine times, he simply "regenerates" into a whole new actor

Doctor Who The Waters of Mars Review: Adieu, David Tennant

(Complete story at the HDRoom )

'The Waters of Mars' throws us into the action within its first six minutes. The Doctor arrives on Bowie Base One, humanity's first off-Earth colony, and within moments the monsters are emerging as terror ensues.

The monsters are genuinely creepy and one of the more memorable designs in recent episodes. However to dwell on them is to miss the point of this episode. 'The Waters of Mars' is not about playing with the monster of the week but rather about showing the audience an internal conflict within the Doctor and the ramifications that his decision will have on him and those around him.

Another Doctor Who special airdate and a sneak peek (video)

BBC America announced another airdate for the last of David Tennant's Doctor Who specials today: "The End of Time, Part One" airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Dec. 26, followed by part two at a date to be announced soon.

Following is a sneak-peek clip from the special, after which you can read the full official announcement.


David Tennant’s last Who specials in the US

09 Dec 2009

Finally! U.S. airdates for Tennant's last Who specials

Sci Fi Wire has posted among many the last episodes to be released in the US. Being one my favorites since Tom Baker it is going to be hard and exciting to watch those last ones. Also the curiosity of how the new Dr will make it after having a charismatic actor playing him for such a long time . But maybe that is why they are giving this a years breather between shoots and airing. Who knows.

According to the report

The next special, Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars airs on BBC AMERICA, Saturday December 19, 9:00pm ET/PT. It stars Tennant and British stage and screen actress Lindsay Duncan (Rome, Langford) as Adelaide, his cleverest and most strong-minded companion.

The episodes names is the "WATERS OF MARS" and is being touted as one of the most scariest Dr episodes yet.

See the Mail online article  " David Tennant: New Doctor Who special is 'one of the scariest " for more info on that episode.

The last episode after that will be split into two and that will be the end of Davids run as the Dr. Those episodes dates are yet to be announced and will air over the holiday season. On that day I will raise a glass of wine and toast the end of a fun and fantastic run as the Dr and wish the actor well on his other projects and look forward to the new episodes and the new look with an open mind. I know maybe a little to dramatic but hey it is always a wee bit sad to see the familiar face and style you grow accustom to change. But that is what kept that franchise vibrant and fresh all those years and is the reason why it is the longest SCI FI show in the history of the world.

The BBC also announced the DVD collection release of those final shows including the one that already has been released the Planet of the Dead

The BBC will release The Waters of Mars and the two-part finale on DVD and Blu-ray, Tuesday, February 2, 2010. Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead is already available on DVD and Blu-ray. Releasing on February 2 are:

* Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars - DVD SRP: $14.98/BD SRP: $19.89

* Two-part special (2-disc release) - DVD SRP: $24.98 / BD SRP: $29.99

* Doctor Who: Specials Collection (5-disc release) - DVD SRP: $49.98 / BD SRP: $59.99 - contains The Next Doctor, Planet of the Dead, Waters of Mars and the two-part finale


K9 returns in his own series.

08 Dec 2009

Why can't they let a sleeping dog lie? The long-rumored Doctor Who spinoff series K9—The Series has finished production and is slated to debut in Australia and Europe early next year, according to Park Entertainment.

Says Sci fi Wire about the new Dr Who spin off series aimed at children. I say WTF are they smoking. K9 is perfect for children and not only that it has to be one of the most lovable creations that came out of that series. But I do have one gripe. I did like the ragged old school look that it had in the original Dr Who series. The original k9 first appeared in theDr Who Episode ; The Invisible Enemy where -

Source - Wikia

Professor Marius was a scientist who worked at the Bi-Al Foundation in the year 5000 as a specialist in extraterrestrial pathological endomorphisms. While on Earth he also wanted a dog so he constructed K-9 to accompany and assist him in his work. He helped the Doctordefeat the Swarm, although he himself was briefly infected by it and so freed the nucleus and made it grow in size. Afterwards, Marius gave K-9 to the Doctor to take with him on his journeys.

Later on there were other incarnations of K9 named by Marks 1 - 4 . I think the most famous was Mark 2 with Tom Bakers Dr. But he has appeared with other Drs and as recently on the Sarah Jane Smith series. If you are going to check out the full history of K9  it would be best to review the history written in Wikia.com about  K9 or Wikipediasversion. Both are detailed and give a great abbreviated timeline.

Anyway Park has a promo of the series and it is described by them as so.

K9 - FIRST K9 - The Series The long-awaited television series K9, featuring everyone's favourite robot dog, is nearly with us!

Originally created for the 1970s DOCTOR WHO series by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, K9 has long been an iconic television character. Now a brand new series of K9 is several weeks into production.. K9 is a children's sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense - "X Files" meets "Men in Black" with a zany dash of "Ghostbusters". K9 mixes live action characters with stunning visual-effects.

K9 and his three teenage companions become the earth's front line defence against dangers threatening from anywhere and anytime in the galaxy. They will have a lot of fun, action, adventure, and some scares along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, monsters and more than a few human threats.
Production commenced in early December 2008 on a specially built set just outside Brisbane, Australia. Shooting continues on this 26 part series until the end of April and the series is expected to begin broadcast on Ten Network and Jetix Europe early in 2010.

I Know the show will air over seas before we even get a glimpse of it but if anyone reading this sees it. I would love to hear an honest critique on it from a fans point of view.
