Director Terry McDonough is the lucky man who was given the somewhat unenviable task of bringing the world of 1960’s BBC and the world of the first incarnation of DOCTOR WHO to life for the new TV movie AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME. McDonough is a WHO fan himself, and he took a few minutes to give ASSIGNMENT X a taste of what went into creating that time period and that specific world for today’s audiences. ASSIGNMENT X: Can you talk about the process you went through to re-create the TARDIS and the Daleks on a limited budget? TERRY […]Read On »

Actor David Bradley has had pop culture fame for years. He was Argus Filch in the HARRY POTTER film franchise, and he was Walter Frey in HBO’s GAME OF THRONES television series. More recently he could be seen alongside 10th Doctor, David Tennant, in BROADCHURCH, and now he is appearing on our TV screens as the first Doctor William Hartnell in DOCTOR WHO AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME. Bradley was a fan of the original WHO series, remembers when it started fifty years ago, and his resemblance to Hartnell is uncanny. So what makes it exciting for a fan […]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 »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Steven Moffat Director:  Nick Hurran Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 1, 2012 So DOCTOR WHO is finally back on the airwaves with “Asylum of the Daleks”! It is just me or does it feel like it’s been forever since there was a new WHO on, and by the same token doesn’t it feel just a little bit like it’s been no time at all? Timey Wimey Wibbly Wobbly. Please be warned there are spoilers ahead, but some things are too good and have to be talked about! So […]Read On »

As Series 7 of DOCTOR WHO nears this summer, the BBC has been strategically doling out teases of what the expect as the series celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year.
