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. 😀

Just few nights ago Karen Gillan spoke about her confirmed departure from Doctor Who, the longest-running and highest-rated sci-fi series in history, during her interview on The Graham Norton Show (BBC America).

Some time during the season 7 of Doctor Who will stop being the Doctor’s companion, but she will return to the show in the future.

Karen Gillan on Graham Norton Radio 2 (29 Oct 2011)

It’s official now (from some time now) that Amy and Rory will leave Doctor Who series during the next season (season 7). Karen Gillan appeared on October 29th 2011 on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 show and she talked about that. During the interview she said that she will welcome the next Doctor Who companion with open arms when her time is up on the show.

She also said: “I know the time is going to come when Rory and Amy have to leave. It’s inevitable and that will make me really, really sad. But that’s the nature of the show and what’s so good about it. What keeps it exciting is the fact that it’s reinvented all the time with new people. I think that’s a really great part of the show, so I will welcome the new companion with open arms.”

It seems she will return to the show sometime in the future, but it not know (to the public, at least) when. I can only hope it’s as soon as possible. 😀
