Alex Scarrow author Eighth Doctor short story ebook

Alex Scarrow has penned the eighth adventure in BBC’s exclusive series of short Doctor Who ebooks.

When the Eighth Doctor arrives, he realises this latest threat to humanity is horrifyingly familiar – it is a virus which almost annihilated his entire race, the Time Lords…

Spore is available to pre-order at Amazon (UK | US) and iTunes (UK | AU).

Introducing Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor

The big news from tonight is the Peter Capaldi’s introduction as the Twelfth Doctor. He should be replacing Matt Smith on Christmas special episode, when the Eleventh Doctor will regenerate from one reason or another.

The future Time Lord was among the guests on tonight’s show – Doctor Who Live: The Twelfth Doctor – who also included guests as the fifth Doctor Peter Davison, fellow Who alumnus Bernard Cribbins and celebrity fans Daniel Roache, Rufus Hound and Liza Tarbuck.

There were contributions, too, from Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, and former companions Anneke Wills, who played Polly, Katy Manning, aka Jo Grant, Janet Fielding, who was Tegan, and Bonnie Langford, known to fans as Mel.

Well… there are 2 problems about this new Doctor.

  1. the Doctor Who episode named The fire of Pompeii
  2. The Doctor Who’s spinoff, Torchwood

The actor Peter Capaldi appeared in both. So… In Torchwood the Doctor and Peter Capaldi’s character never met (as far as I remember), but David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) saved Peter Capaldi’s character and family from the vulcano’s killer breath.

There are 2 options about the tonight announcement:

  1. it’s a hoax. A part of Steven Moffat’s lies, a trial to save the show and the surprises he’s preparing for us for the end of the year.
  2. it’s for real, and Steven Moffat will have some explaining to do. 😀 A very very very good reason why the new Doctor is identical to the previous characters.

What do you think? 😀 🙂

The Twelfth Doctor’s reveal and Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor Sunday 7pm on BBC1

I must admit that the people involved in developing Doctor Who know how to keep people’s attention to a high level: the search for the new Doctor, the actor who’s going to replace Matt Smith, is over, and they are ready to reveal it to everybody interested.

They created the teaser trailer in order to present the following event:  in a special one-off live television event on BBC One this Sunday 4th August at 7pm, the next Doctor will be exclusively revealed to the world.

Widely regarded as one of the most hotly contested roles in British television, the show’s host Zoe Ball will unveil the 12th Doctor in the first ever interview in front of a live studio audience set against the backdrop of a swirling vortex, amongst Daleks and the TARDIS.

The half hour show will include live special guests, Doctors old and new, as well as companions and celebrity fans.

You can find more information about Matt Smith and Steven Moffats’ interviews on the subject here.

The intense speculation about the identity of the new Doctor got higher and higher since Doctor Who announced his leave from the show, back in June. You don’t have to wait to much to find out, so keep your fingers crossed. 😀

Matt Smith Leaving Doctor Who, BBC News

The news that was released yesterday, about Matt Smith leaving Doctor Who series, was almost… hearth-breaking. It was said not long ago that he was supposed to appear in the eight (new) series, next year, but the new official news is that he will only appear in Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode and he will regenerate in the Christmas special episode.

Matt Smith is the eleventh Doctor, the latest one, and he was (as far as I know and as far as I watched the last 7 seasons) one of the best. It was expected to leave the show one moment or another, but I hoped to be later than sooner.

There are already several ideas (more or less serious) about who’s going to be the new Doctor. John Hurt was introduced as the Doctor in the last episode of the seventh series, The name of the Doctor, but it is not said to the public when he will become the Time Lord and how long he will play that role. There are some chances to be the next Doctor, the 12th, following Matt Smith but I think we have to wait and watch the show…

NASA confirms Doctor Who-type world, Gallifrey

The article posted on Digital Journal is almost one year old (August 2012), but it’s the first time I’ve read it – by accident. And the story is interesting: NASA has confirmed the existence of a real-universe analogue of Gallifrey, the Time Lord home planet.

Coincidence? 😀 Maybe not!

According to an article in the Register, NASA came across what it calls a “transiting circumbinary multi-planet system” – in layman’s speak, “two worlds orbiting two suns” – using its Kepler planet-hunting telescope. The new system, which has been named Kepler 47, has two stars circling each other every 7.5 days. One of them is similar in size to our sun, whereas the other is approximately one third its size.

The inner planet – Kepler-47b – is three times the size of our world, making it the smallest known transiting circumbinary planet, and it orbits the stars every 49 days. The second – Kepler-47c – lies in the habitable zone around the two suns.

Digital Journal‘s Andrew Moran first reported on the discovery in January 2012, but the full study report has now been accepted by and published in Science.

The Register goes on to state that Kepler-47c is “slightly larger than Uranus and circles its stars every 303 days, making it the longest transiting planet currently known. The whole system lies about 5,000 light years away in the Cygnus constellation”.

The full report of NASA’s twin-system discovery is published in Science.

Brian Minchin confirmed as New Executive Producer of Doctor Who alongside Steven Moffat

BBC Cymru Wales has announced that Brian Minchin is to be the new Executive Producer of Doctor Who, alongside showrunner Steven Moffat.

You may have noticed him before, because he is not new in the field: he has previously worked on Wizards Vs Aliens, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood to name but a few. For now (as it is said in the announcement) Brian Minchin is an Executive Producer in BBC Wales drama, currently working on The Game, a new Cold War spy thriller from Toby Whithouse for BBC One, and Wizards Vs Aliens, Russell T Davies’ hit show for CBBC. He has also worked as BBC Executive Producer on Dirk Gently and Being Human.

Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, adds: “When I first took over Doctor Who, Brian was there as script editor, and in the most difficult time of a new Doctor and a new era, was completely brilliant. We lost him to producing The Sarah Jane Adventures at the end of our first run. Rising talent keeps rising, is how I comforted myself back then – but now I am beyond happy that Brian has risen all the way back to Doctor Who, in his new role of Executive Producer. I look forward to getting hopelessly lost in space and time with him.”

You can find more information about Brian Minchin here.

It should be interesting to see his support on Doctor Who series, especially because it’s a special year, with the 50th anniversary and all other good stuff… 😀

New Doctor Who books: The Dalek Generation, Shroud of Sorrow, Plague of the Cybermen and The Roots of Evil proudly announces about these three brand new adventures featuring the Eleventh Doctor and some of the Doctor’s most notorious foes have been released by BBC Books and Random House.

The Dalek Generation

by Nicholas Briggs

Sunlight 349 is one of countless Dalek Foundation worlds, planets created to house billions of humanoids suffering from economic hardship. The Doctor arrives, suspicious of any world where the Daleks are apparently a force for good – and determined to find out the truth. He soon finds himself in court, facing the ‘Dalek Litigator’. But do his arch enemies really have nothing more to threaten than legal action? The Doctor knows they have a far more sinister plan – but how can he convince those who have lived under the benevolence of the Daleks for a generation? But convince them he must, and soon. For on another Foundation planet, archaeologists have unearthed the most dangerous technology in the universe…

Shroud of Sorrow

by Tommy Donbavand

It is the day after John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his deceased father in the mists along Totter’s Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her late grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane. Then the faces begin to talk, and scream… and push through into our world. As the alien Shroud begins to feast on the grief of a world in mourning, can the Doctor dig deep enough into his own sorrow to save mankind? Also featuring Clara Oswald, as played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.

Plague of the Cybermen

By Justin Richards

When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague – a ‘wasting disease’. The victims face a horrible death – but what’s worse, the dead seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned… The Doctor is confident he knows what’s really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he’s sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor’s oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken he realises that maybe – just maybe – he’s misjudged the situation.

Plague of the Cybermen is also available as an audiobook, read by David Warner (Grischenko in Cold War) and featuring Doctor Who regular Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Cybermen.

Meanwhile… The writer Philip Reeve talks about his new Doctor Who short story The Roots of Evil. The short ebook will be available from April 23. You can pre-order from

Doctor Who Royal Mail stamps have been released and smash sales records

Doctor Who tardis and stamps
Do you remember the Royal Mail stamps I’ve mentioned some time ago? Well, Doctor announces that after an unprecedented number of pre-registrations the stamps have been released.

The stamps were recently launched at an event in London, with former Doctors Tom Baker, Peter Davison and Paul McGann in attendance. You can see a gallery of pictures from that launch here, while the full set of stamps can be seen on Radio Times.

Radio Times also say in another article that:

There’s also a mixed sheet of stamps featuring the TARDIS and four of the BBC sci-fi drama’s most iconic villains: a Dalek, a Cyberman, a Weeping Angel and an Ood.

“We’ve had a fantastic response from the public who seemingly can’t wait for the stamps,” said Royal Mail’s managing director of stamps and collectibles Andrew Hammond.

In addition to the stamps, Royal Mail is also creating unique postmarks in each of the Doctor’s hometowns, meaning that post mailed in Northampton, for example – where Matt Smith is from – will feature a postmark with the actor’s name and the length of time he’s played the role.

Karen Gillan joins the US TV series NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle)

It’s not long since Karen Gillan left Doctor Who series, now he joins the US TV series NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle). I’ve never heard about this show, but it seems to be a procederal and action parody and it’s filming the third series. It should be interesting to watch…

Karen Gillan will appear alongside existing cast members Paul Scheer, Kate Mulgrew, Rebecca Romijn, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr and Peter Serafinowicz.

NTSF:SD:SUV – which stands for National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle – is created by Scheer who stars as agent Trent Hauser alongside his elite counter-terrorist unit. Gillan will appear as Daisy, the team’s ‘Q’ tech expert, in a third season of, “furious screaming, pregnant pauses, and even more civilian casualties than last season.”

In their bid to bring down San Diego-based terrorists, the unit will go to extreme lengths including surgically swapping faces with each other, kidknapping an alien, faking their own deaths and, er, entering the dangerous British District of San Diego.

The new series has already begun shooting in LA and London and will be broadcast on US channel Adult Swim this July.

Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode will be 3D, filming on the episode is due to begin in April

As a part of the usual secrecy around new Doctor Who episodes, the executive producer Steven Moffat has been talking into an article published on Radio Times about the precautions he is taking to ensure that plot details of the show’s 50th anniversary aren’t leaked in advance:

“There’s one length I’ve gone to, which I think is a really good security measure – I make sure I don’t get a script. Because I will lose it. So I forbid people to hand me one. It’s just on my computer at home under lock and key,” he revealed.

“Well, you cultivate the habit of giving nothing away,” said Matt Smith who joined Steven Moffat. “And then it’s quite nice. You’re sat on all this information and people are genuinely intrigued. It’s one of the responsibilities of being in this show. You have to discrete about what you tell people, but you have to give people enough. But the show is based on impact and delivering it on a Saturday night to people in their homes.”

The source.

On the other hand:

“You won’t be disappointed,” said Matt Smith in reaction to seeing the script. “I read it and I clapped at the end. I think it’s hilarious and I think it’s epic and I think it’s vast. I’m telling you nothing more. But you will not be disappointed. I think it’s going to be the biggest, the best, the most inventive, the most exciting year for the show. The script delivers on all those points that you want it to for where the show is at this time. It’s brilliant.”

Speaking at the press launch for the new series, which begins on Saturday 30 March, the 30-year-old actor added: “It somehow manages to pay homage to everything and look forward. And I think that’s the genius of it.”

The source.

Tom Spilsbury, the Doctor Who Magazine editor, said on Twitter to say that filming on the 50th anniversary episode is due to begin in April. Filming was supposed to start today, but the schedule was altered.
