This looks interesting, a bound between the Doctor and the woman in love with him I’ve never thought about before.

Doctor Who, season 11, episode 2 – The ghost monument

A race against time to win the Race of 12 galaxies, traveling through a dangerous territory on a planet with 3 suns to arrive to the Ghost monument (that looks a lot like a blue box phone), using only what they find on spot and avoiding everything that could kill them.

The previous episode let the Doctor and her companions floating, lost is space of unknown solar system. She was searching her TARDIS and, by mistake, took the 3 humans along. They are saved by the only 2 surviving pilots of a very long race, they land on Desolation, the final part of the route. The only reason the 4 travelers join the 2 pilots is the TARDIS without they would be stuck on the surface of Desonations, a place that would kill them in less than a day.

The episode was directed by Mark Tonderai, based on a story by Chris Chibnall, and it continues pretty good (in the same style) the first episode of the series. You won’t get (too) bored watching it.

Cast: Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien), Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), Shaun Dooley (Epzo), Ian Gelder (Remnants – voice), Susan Lynch (Angstrom), Art Malik (Ilin).

The next episode: Montgomery, Alabama. 1955. The Doctor and her friends find themselves in the Deep South of America. As they encounter a seamstress by the name of Rosa Parks, they begin to wonder whether someone is attempting to change history.

Doctor Who, series 11, episode 1 – The woman who fell to Earth

So, a new Doctor, for the first time a woman – Jodie Whittaker, but (for now) away of TARDIS, a new group of human companions that are going along her in adventures through space and time, a new showrunner – Chris Chibnall.

The first of the season 11 is different from the previous episodes, it seems more to an action movie and has some special effects from that type of movies. And it’s not bad, the change is good (even when no all the fans can keep its pace). I did not have the time to watch the episode Sunday evening, that it has an advantage: I could see a lot of people complaining of different things (the female Doctor without a TARDIS, the episode is childish, it does not have a balance, and so on) because they were expecting something different. I can’t say they were all wrong (I would have done 2 or 3 things different), but, nevertheless, I can’t change your taste, but science-fiction as genre should surprise you, should come with new ideas and perspectives (that make it so charming).

That’s why I won’t write anything about the action of the episode, at least not this time, and let you watch it if you haven’t watched it already. You can find references from Predator and Terminator and you can consider them parodies.

Directed by Jamie Childs, written by Chris Chibnall. Cast: Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Philip Abiodun (Dean), Hazel Atherton (Sissy Roberts – Train Driver), Sharon D. Clarke (Grace O’Brien), Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair), Jonny Dixon (Karl), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), Asif Khan (Ramesh Sundur), Asha Kingsley (Sonia), Stephen MacKenna (Dennis), Janine Mellor (Janey), Samuel Oatley (Tim Shaw), Amit Shah (Rahul), James Thackeray (Andy), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien).

Adventure has a new face – series 11 cinematic trailer

A fan-made trailer, an editing together of the first two Thirteenth Doctor trailers and a rather lovely rendition of the Doctor’s theme into a fabulously cinematic whole:

Are the eyes windows to the soul? No, they are in fact the doors. If you look into her eyes, even for a second, you’ll see wonders beyond imagining. The stars, the universe, an adventure waiting to be had, it’s all there… and she’s inviting you along.

Alternative Doctor Who themes

This ska version by the Melbourne Ska Orchestra is something cool.

And also the lightly swung jazz version, complete with (sonic) vibraphone solo. In honour of the Herts Jazz Festival 2016, the Youtuber GeorgeCMusic decided to upload this swing jazz arrangement of the Doctor Who theme he made a few years ago. It was created for a Doctor Who fan audio play currently stuck in development hell.

How about a few modulations for solo piano? This Doctor Who jazz cover was created by Bendy, he got the idea from comedian and musical genius Bill Bailey on his live show “The Remarkable Guide To The Orchestra”. And he just had to try it!

Recommended in Doctor Who Magazine Issue 524 and by the BBC America blog, this is the 2018 update of Babelcolour’s Every Doctor Who Story tribute. The opening monologue in the fan-made video owes a huge debt of thanks to the generous contributions made by an amazing group of voice artists – Jon Culshaw, Jonathon Carley, Elliott Crossley, Stuart Grant, John Guilor, Wink Taylor, Christopher Thomson and Peter Walsh.
