Yes, famed SANDMAN author Neil Gaiman will be writing an episode of DOCTOR WHO this forthcoming season and at WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco we got the scoop during his chat with the press about the series. “My episode is the fourth episode of the season,” Gaiman says. “It was originally going to be episode 11 of the last season, but we moved it to this season so that there would be enough budget to make it properly.” While that disappointed Gaiman, it ended up working out for the best. “At the time it made me incredibly sad and now […]Read On »

Russell T. Davies, the man most directly responsible for the resurrection of the DOCTOR WHO franchise in 2005, was on hand at the Television Critic’s Association to promote his upcoming fourth season of TORCHWOOD, also a WHO connected show. And, of course, ASSIGNMENT X couldn’t resist asking his thoughts on the new DOCTOR WHO series post his exit. “Of course I love it! Stephen Moffat’s most important role is to get me a DVD before that Saturday of transmission,” says Davies. “This new season it’s going to go out on BBC America on the same day, but I still want […]Read On »

On December 25, 2010, BBC One and BBC America bridge the temporal gap between US and UK WHO fans, and it surely is about time! While […]Read On »

© 2010 Silva Screen Records | DR. WHO HOLIDAY SPECIAL SOUNDTRACK

Whether it’s Halloween or Xmas, TV has loved to celebrate the holidays with special episodes, but it’s doubtful any of them have sounded cooler than when the usually agnostic Time Lord (in the series 4 personages of David Tennant, David Morrissey and Martin Smith) has decided to make the Yuletide gay. It’s also a great occasion for the always creative DOCTOR WHO composer Murray Gold to unleash the musical bells and whistles for this two-CD compilation that includes “The Next Doctor,” “Planet of the Dead,” “The Waters of Mars” and “The End of Time.” There are certain musical signatures you […]Read On »

The AX Interview: SHOWRUNNERS STEVEN MOFFAT AND MARK GATISS ON ‘SHERLOCK’ AND ‘DOCTOR WHO’

It seems everybody has taken a turn at depicting Arthur Conan Doyle’s proto-detective Sherlock Holmes. Steven Moffat, who recently worked on the screenplay for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming feature THE ADVENTURES OF TIN-TIN, and Mark Gatiss, both currently on the BBC’s DOCTOR WHO starring Matt Smith, have brought Holmes into the twenty-first century while remaining true to the spirit of the original with their new three-part BBC/PBS series SHERLOCK, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, with Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson. The show is already a hit in England and just finished up its run on the network’s MASTERPIECE MYSTERY […]Read On »
