The BBC has released a new publicity photograph of Matt Smith as the Doctor sporting a considerably darker (and perhaps even more ‘Doctorish?’) outfit. The picture provides a sneak peek of this year’s DOCTOR WHO Christmas special. A prequel to the special will air as part of this Friday’s CHILDREN IN NEED live charity event on BBC One sometime around the 8:30-9:00pm slot. A trailer for the special itself, which will see the Doctor meeting his new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, will accompany the prequel. Ah, but wait, you say: Didn’t Coleman already appear in this year’s Series 7 […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “The Angels Take Manhattan” – Review #2

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Steven Moffat  Director:  Nick Hurran    Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2012 “The Angels Take Manhattan” is a tough episode of DOCTOR WHO –  in fact it might be the toughest since Matt Smith took over as the Eleventh Doctor. This episode is the big farewell to Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), and since Amy has been the Doctor’s companion since his first episode in this newer incarnation, this has been a good run for the two of them. There’s also been a lot of change […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “The Power of Three” – Review #2

Arthur Darvill, Matt Smith, and Karen Gillan in DOCTOR WHO - Series 7 - "The Power of Three" | ©2012 BBC America

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall Director:  Douglas Mackinnon   Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2012 Not every episode of DOCTOR WHO can be absolute gold. There have to be slow episodes, talking heads episodes, and yes even somewhat dull episodes. “The Power of Three” is not the best episode in the new run, but it’s not the worst since the series restarted in 2005. It’s just kind of a yawn episode with some amusing moments here and there. I really feel that since the Ponds are leaving next episode that this […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “A Town Called Mercy” – Review #2

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Toby Whithouse Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2012 DOCTOR WHO returns to the Wild, Wild West with “A Town Called Mercy” this week, and this is a considerable step up from “The Gunfighters.” Sure the 1960’s adventure had famous western names to boast, but this new episode has a really nifty cyborg and some fun moments here and there, plus a new Stetson for the Doctor. I realize as I am writing this review that Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) have started […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” – Review #2

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall  Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 8, 2012 So after last week’s premiere of DOCTOR WHO, there are a lot of plot elements  left hanging in the air. This is typical of the more modern incarnation of WHO, where through lines are established in the first episode of a new series, and then carried until the end of that series, and sometimes beyond. But, now that we had a slightly darker and heavier hand in the “Asylum” it’s time to lighten things up a […]Read On »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall  Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, Online Web Broadcast Original Telecast: Week of August 27– 31, 2012 So before DOCTOR WHO returned to air waves last weekend, there has been a five part web series called “Pond Life” that is a sort of catching up on the Doctor (Matt Smith) and the Ponds since we last saw them. Of course, there is a whole contingency of fans out there that are not so fond of Amy (Karen Gillan), Rory (Arthur Darvill) and especially their daughter River Song (Alex Kingston). I […]Read On »
