Doctor Who Convention in Philadelphia 1984

 This video is from a local NJ Public Broadcasting TV station in 1984 that ran Dr. Who. The poorish quality is due to the fact that the person who originally recorded it used the cheap VHS (6 hour) recording speed (back then video tapes were expensive). The guests shown are Sarah Sutton and Ian Marter.

Doctor Who tribute – 50 fantastic years

 The video is a tribute to the one of the best TV shows ever made. It passed 50 years from William to Matt, from An Unearthy Child to The Doctor The Widow and The Wardroube. I’ve been watching only the last 6 seasons and I love it.

Doctor Who – Cast and crew, special

The video was made by Jennie Fava and it was edited by Geraint Huw Reynolds. It’s interesting to find more about the people behind Doctor Who series, to put a face to a name… and it’s also fun (the video).  It was made for the end of David Tennant’s tenure as the Doctor.

A study in blink (Sherlock/Doctor Who)

I consider the video as fun, but some might consider it something bad. It’s a fan made video that combines scenes from Sherlock and Doctor Who. It’s description from youtube contains the following text.

“The Weeping Angels have found their way to London, but The Doctor is trapped in time. It is down to Sherlock and John to save everyone, but the Angels already have the TARDIS.”

I’m amazed no one has thought of the name ‘A Study in Blink’ as a combination of ‘A Study in Pink’ and ‘Blink’ before, so I HAD to get in there. The Weeping Angels seemed a good match for Sherlock, what with them being psychopaths and him a borderline sociopath.

William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy “Much Ado About Nothing”

As I wrote in the description of this website, its purpose is to provide information about the Doctor Who series, characters and actors. The next video has nothing to do with the series itself, but David Tennant (Doctor Who number 10) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble) appear together on stage for the first time in William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing. From my personal point of view it’s interesting to see how two actors that performed so well on the screen are performing on the theater stage.

Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.

Directed by Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s great plays and reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.

How John Barrowman found out he was the Face of Boe

I think I will always remember the scene where captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) told the Doctor and Martha about the time he was modeling and he was called Face of Boe… I was laughing for minutes… I don’t know exactly how many, but they were enough to make the moment a great memory.

In the description of the video on youtube it is written that it is an unseen Doctor Who Confidential footage, and this was actually Torchwood Declassified but it belongs on Dr Who Confidential.

Doctor Who: “The First Question” – 50th Anniversary Trailer

The 50th anniversary is a big subject and I want to treat is in its section, but it’s going to happen this year and it’s going to celebrate 50 years since the first episode of Doctor Who.

Meanwhile, just watch the trailer. 😀 Until now the Doctor Who have been magnificent, great, wonderful… but nothing is comparing to what’s coming.

Let me remind you about the first question and how the Doctor found out about it:

Doctor: “Who wants me dead?”
Teselecta: “€œThe Silence”
Doctor: “What is the Silence? Why is it called that? What does it mean?”
Teselecta: “The Silence is not a species; it is a religious order or movement. Their core belief is that silence will fall when the question is asked.”
Doctor: “What question?”
Teselecta: “The first question; the oldest question in the universe. Hidden in plain sight.”
Doctor: “Yes, but what is the question?”
Teselecta: “Unknown”

In the season 6 final he was told the question:

DORIUM: “On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature may speak falsely or fail to give answer, a question will be asked. A question that must never, ever be answered.”
THE DOCTOR: “Silence will fall when the question is asked”
DORIUM: “Silence must fall would be a better translation. The Silence are determined that the question must never be answered. The Doctor must never reach Trenzalore.”
THE DOCTOR: “I don’t understand? What’s it got to do with me?”
DORIUM: “The first question. The oldest question in the universe, hidden in plain sight. Would you like to know what it is?â”
THE DOCTOR: “Yes!â”
DORIUM: “Are you sure?”

Well… Dorium told him. But, in order to find out about the question just watch the show. 😀

John Barrowman singing the Doctor Who theme song

We’ve all watched John Barrowman playing the role of Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who series and Torchwood series… but it’s the first time I am hearing him singing and singing Doctor Who theme song. I don’t know the occasion, but it’s fun. 😀
