Doctor Who makes TV Guide Christmas cover

TV Guide was first published in the United States in 1953 and celebrated its 49th year in 2012, and it is America’s longest running TV listings magazine. So it’s about Doctor Who show’ age. Even so, it is the first time when the Doctor makes the Christmas cover.

Doctor Who airs in the US on BBC America and has a dedicated worldwide following. Seasonal special The Snowmen airs over there on Christmas Day just hours after it is seen by BBC1 audiences in Great Britain.

As Radio Times says, Matt Smith and his bow tie will be a feature of coffee tables across America this Christmas after US’ Doctor Who fans voted for the show to feature on the cover of TV Guide.

Now in its third year, the Fan Favorites Cover Contest asks viewers to decide which series should front TV Guide’s Christmas double issue. The magazine said Doctor Who fans had galvanised support “through countless blog posts, message-board comments and tweets” to beat big-name American shows including The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars.

Smith called the news “amazing,” adding “Thank you to everyone who voted, because this is a huge, huge accolade. Fans mustn’t underestimate their role in the emergence of the show in America.”

The newly designed Tardis interior

It does not seems too much since the Tardis design has been changed… It happened when the transition between the Tenth Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor happened, when the Doctor and Amy Pond first met.

Well, it seems the time to some new changes. “On Christmas Day, the Doctor will usher you into a brand new world,” Steven Moffat told in a Radio Times interview. “[There’s] a brand new Tardis: Same old police box, of course, but when you open those magic blue doors…” announces Moffat in the Christmas double issue of Radio Times magazine. ”

The lighting unit from above the Tardis console is adorned with symbols from the Time Lords’ Gallifreyan “alphabet” and is a darker, more serious-looking proposition to its predecessors (perhaps in keeping with the Time Lord’s post-Pond mood at the start of the Christmas episode).

Moffat said: “When you have a genius designer like Michael Pickwoad, and an opportunity like the Tardis, you’d be mad not to bring the two together.”

Pickwoad’s is the third design since Doctor Who relaunched in 2005. Both previous versions were by Edward Thomas. The classic 1963 original was by Peter Brachacki.

Over here there are more information about the double issue of Radio Times magazine, the Christmas special episode and other interesting stuff.

Did you know that the first Doctor’s words on the screen, back in 1963, where ‘What are you doing here?’

Quite interesting… 49 years later the words and the Doctor are as fresh as they were then.

Do you remember the end of the episode Forest of the Dead? When the Doctor and his companion, Donna Noble, solved the situation, River Song was dead and the Doctor was wondering if he should read or not her diary? Just before saving River (on the hard drive of the library) one more time.

Well… that’s the moment in the image. Its source is Deviantart: Shall We Peek at the End? – Doctor Who by *Girl-on-the-Moon

“Oh Amy, I hear the song of your sadness.”
“I’m not sad.”
“Then why are you crying?”

Do you remember the episode Vincent and the Doctor? The one with the great painter Vincent van Gogh, and the visit the Doctor and Amy Pond made him.

According to the author of the previous image:

A painting I spent many, many hours Livestreaming, this is my tribute to the magnificent Amy Pond, who inspired Vincent van Gogh in her adventures with the Doctor. I hope if Amy stayed with Vincent longer he might’ve painted something like this – something that showed her inner sadness, something he could empathize with.

I can only say: great work!

So, by the rules of the Whovinerse I’m pretty sure this would be completely unstoppable.

The Weeping Angels are pretty much unstoppable, isn’t it? At least in the Doctor Who Universe.

As you may already know, Jemma Redgrave is making a debut as UNIT’s Kate Stewart. I remember the UNIT from the previous series of the new Who, and they are back in this week episode of Doctor Who.

 

UNIT was originally a military organisation formed to deal with ‘the odd and the unexplained’, which normally meant fighting alien invasions with the Doctor leading from the front. As said, executive producer and head writer Steven Moffat is delighted that UNIT returns in The Power of Three.
