Exterminate! Prince Charles voices Dalek on Doctor Who set in Cardiff

On 3rd of July 2012 prince Charles and his wife Camilla took a royal visit to the home of Doctor Who to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary.

In this first video prince Charles voices Dalek and tries to say Exterminate! while touring the Doctor Who set at Roath Lock Studios, Cardiff. Charles tried his hand at being a sci-fi baddie during a visit to the BBC’s studios and uttered the Daleks’ famous “exterminate” catchphrase – leaving the show’s writer Stephen Moffat thoroughly impressed.

He said: “I haven’t thought about how I could weave a meeting between the Doctor and the royal family. But Prince Charles’s attempt at being a Dalek was great.

“There would be a part in the show for him if he wanted it.” Report by Ashley Fudge.

On the other hand, Matt Smith, the outgoing star of the sci-fi series Dr Who, says prince Charles could replace him as the next Time Lord. Prince Charles and Camilla were given a tour of the Doctor’s time machine, the Tardis, by the show’s current stars Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman.

Matt Smith said: “Who knows, but look, he’s doing a good job of [being the Doctor] it now with a bit of a snow blast and he certainly knows his way around the Tardis, so who knows”. Report by Sarah Johnston.

Jenna-Louise Coleman about Matt Smith’s exit and 12th Doctor – BBC News, June 2013

Jenna-Louise Coleman has claimed she has no idea who the 12th Doctor will be, as all the other Doctor Who stars interviews about the subject.

She told BBC News: “Everybody else in the building has asked me who the next Doctor is, and I can tell you honestly we don’t know. It’s going to be a long, long search. But yes, I’m being asked that question a lot.”

Asked about who she would like to see next in the role Coleman replied: “I am completely open, and I have lots of confidence in Steven [Moffat] and all the team. And I’m sure they’re very much across it. But we shall see.
On Matt’s final story, which Jenna says will not film until Autumn, she said: “I just can’t think about it yet. I think because we’ve [Matt and I] got so much left to do. We haven’t even begun our goodbye yet. So, I suppose that’s all I can think about at the moment.

Doctor Who, series 7, episode 13 – The name of the Doctor

I think that many of the ones expecting the final episode of series 7, The name of the Doctor, were in some degree dissapointed about the way Steven Moffat has chosen to solve the Clara Oswald’s mystery. Last week, since the release of the last episode, Nightmare in Silver, a lot of ideas about her identity appeared: she was the Doctor and River Song’s daughter, she was a future incanation of the Doctor (the 12th or the 13th), she was some lost Time Lord from the old series (especially that Steven Moffat said that Clara and the Doctor have met many times in his past), etc. You can search for these ideas, unless you already had some of these them (or similar). But, eventually, the impossible girl was a regular human girl, as you all know – the Doctor studied her life closely.

But how she got to be that special? Not only for the Doctor, but for the entire Universe? Let me tell you, but for this I have to start with the beginning: a convict in the Victorian England told Madame Vastra that the Whispers have spoken about the greatest Doctor’s secret, the one he will take to the grave, and that it was found. Worried, Vastra and Jenny make a conference beyond space and time summoining Strax (left on vacantion), Clara Oswald from 2013, and River Song. The deceased River Song, the one saved by the Doctor as software in the Library’s database (the episodes Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead). The general conclusion, just before being attacked by the new monsters (first time presented in this episode), the Whisperes, is that they have to get to Tranzelor.

Everyone return to his own reality: Vastra to Jenny’s dead body, Strax to the place he was spending his free weekend – they get captured by the Whisperers… and the Great Intelligence impersonated by the same doctor Simeon you could watch in the Christmas special episode. Or almost the same: the Great Inelligence used only his image. Probably you remember that Strax was a nurse at some point, he was recruted along with Vastra, Jenny, Dorian and many others to save Amy Pond and her daughter in the episode A good man goes to war. That knowledge help Strax to save Jenny, but they were of no use when all 3 of them are in danger to lose their lifes, several minutes later.

Clara, along with River Song’s ghost, returns home, meet the Doctor and she tells him about the conference, the message and the trip they have to make to Trenzalor. The expresion “to keep a secret to the grave” has a new meening: the Doctor’s grave is on Trenzalor, the Time Lords’ and their TARDIS-es planet-cemetery. Everybody dies, even the aliens with regenerative powers, and one of the problems about the time travels is that the travelers are put (sometimes) in the situation to visit their own grave. Hardly, Clara, the Doctor and the TARDIS get there, meet their friends and they are almost put to death in order to make the Time Lord to speak his name loudly in order to open his grave to all the visitors.

Do you really think that was a body inside? After the Doctor changed so many bodies during his long life in order to survice? I am letting you find out alone what was in the grave. I only can say that the Great Intelligence’s plan for revenge was to kill the Doctor in all the moments of his life, and the access to his remains was necessary for that action. To save the Doctor Clara accepts to break her being into millions of pieces all along the time and space – the entire Universe. She was always present in Doctor’s life, helping and saving him in ways he would never have suspected until now.

It was an excellent episode, showing the vulnerabilities of a man who’s name alone made entire armies to run away. River and Doctor’s love endures even after her death, and their story will continue further – it remains to watch it how. And John Hurt’s appearance in the end was sensational, he is that incarantion that will betray the name of the Doctor by taking tough decisions necessary to peace and sanity – probably of the entire Universe.

The next episode will be released in November 23drd, 50th anniversary from the release of the first episode of Doctor Who, and it’s created special for this. And, as it is said, it will be extraordinary. 😀

Doctor Who exclusive in the next Radio Times issue: Who am I?

Doctor Who Clara Oswald: who am I? Radio Times issueClara Oswald actress Jenna-Louise Coleman has hinted at how her character has met Doctor so many times, in an interview published in the new issue of Radio Times. Yes, of course, this week’s issue of Radio Times is in UK shops from today, Tuesday 14 May… so do not hesitate to go get it!

The source of the image is, where you can find more information (some of them you already know) about Clara. One thing is for sure: this Saturday we will all understand why the Doctor has met Clara so many times.

Doctor Who, series 7, episode 12, The Nightmare in Silver

To better understand the context of the action of The nightmare in silver there are 2 things that have to be explained: the first one have Clara Oswald in the center of attention. At the end of the previous episode, The Crimson Horror, the Doctor’s companion is blackmailed by the children she’s taking care to take them with her in the next adventure. So the TARDIS get to Hedgewick’s world, the best and the wonderful amusement park in the galaxy, a quarter of a million years in the future, with four time travelers: the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie. The reason? The Doctor had a very useful golden ticket (he will use it to some point to block the Cyberade) that gets you free access and free icecream for 4 persons.

On the other hand, one thousand years before that moment, the empire that included the human race fought for a long time to the cybernetic organisms called the Cybermen in the Cyber wars. The humans won that war, but with huge costs: an entire galaxy and its inhabitants just dissapeared (died), along with the enemies. Since that war the humas had taken only drastic measures: when they found a Cyberman that they could not destroy on the spot: to destroy the entire planet, even with the price of their lifes. The reason was very simple: the upgrading function these cybernetic organism for the features of any kind (a long time ago they were humans upgraded for war and not only) was very efficient, many times having the chance to use the enemy troops as spare parts to defeat the enemy side considered to that moment on the virge of victory.

That’s why the new versions of Cyberman are a lot better than the one met in the previous episodes: the move quicly, almost incredible fast, they offer many surprises to the ones hunting them (not only detachable hands and head), and the extensions they use to gather information and to repair damaged cyborgs have reduced remarkable in size. They are called now Cybermite and play an important role in killing the team of soldiers sent on this empty planet.

Returning to the action of the episode, once arrived on the Hedgewick’s lost world, the Doctor and his companions met the troopers maneuvering on the surface and Mr. Webley, a showman that got there without knowng that he would not get any spectators. He invites the new guys to play chess with a non-functional Cyberman, but manipulated by the small Porridge.

In some moment, after they have explored the area a bit, Clara and the kids were ready to go, but the Doctor stoped them observing the mechanism in small sizes that apparently infested the place. The problems start to appear when Artie and Angie are taken prisoners and their transformation into Cyberman, along with Webley and the Doctor, is initiated. The Cyber Planner is not a new idea, it has been used in the old series, but it’s the first one when it is addressed directly to Doctor’s mind creating reactions internal and external of the struggle between multiple personalities in the same body.

Maybe you are wondering how the cybernetic organisms could infect a Time Lord attempting (more or less successful) to transform him… To this episode the Cybermen could not convert beings other than humans, and Doctor is an alien. The problem of the constant technological upgrading is that, unavoidable, the technology adapts to any situation and being it gets in contact with – on this thing Neil Gaiman based when he wrote the story. In a way he did it, the Doctor’s enemies got more frightening than before, but the story have some faults (how the soldiers got the weapons used in a war that took place one thousand years before, electrocuting the cyborgs using water seems a little too trivial in that context, etc.).

The action is based on a game of chess, the soldiers’ resistance against the asalt of 3 milion Cybermen and the attempt to stop them without destroying the entire planet. If I made you curious enought you will watch the episode without other details. The story could be a lot better, but it works. I hope you’ll enjoy it as you should.

Cast: Matt Smith (The Doctor), Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald), Jason Watkins (Webley), Warwick Davis (Porridge), Eve de Leon Allen (Angie), Kassius Carey Johnson (Artie), Tamzin Outhwaite (Captain), Eloise Joseph (Beauty), Will Merrick (Brains), Calvin Dean (Ha-Ha), Zahra Ahmadi (Missy), Aidan Cook (Cyberman).

Doctor Who, series 7, episode 11 – `The Crimson Horror` review

“Yes, I’m the Doctor, you’re nuts, and I’m gonna stop you.”

“In the wrong hands, that venom could wipe out all life on this planet!”

Do you know about the not scientific proved story that the retina from a dead man’s eyes keeps the very last thing he had seen before dying? The medicine says that things can’t happen, at least in normal conditions. In the victorian times, in Yorkshire the year 1983 (the very next year after the events in the Christmas special episode, The snowmen, from London), started to appear dead man in the canals with a strange spect: scarlet-red skin, almost shining, and with the images from the moment of dead imprinted on the retina.

The Doctor and Clara arrive in Yorkshire by accident (they wanted to get in London) and become interested by the mystery. They discover that it was about some poison and the Sweetville mill, managed by Mrs. Gillyflower, is somehow related to that deaths. They try to get inside the society presided by the old lady and her silent partner, Mr. Sweet, and they disappear from the face of the Earth – at least from the point of everyone else. It’s not something unusual: about everybody accepted in the group disappeared without trace… or they were found dead in mysterious circumstances.

Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax get involved in the story when the brother of a deceased reporter shows them the pictures he has taken… the Doctor’s image was very clear in the reporter’s eyes, so they go to solve the mystery and save the Doctor. Jenna gets inside the mill and finds the prisoner – a waste of the process that transformed the normal humans into scarlet dead corps. The only reason he was still alive (beside his internal alien chemistry that made him partially immune to the virus) was the attachment Ada Gillyflower (the blind daughter of the old lady responsible for everything) felt for him – she preferred to keep a monster as companion instead throwing him into the canals, along with the rest of the waste.

The Doctor is saved, along with Jenny they save Clara, and the team reunited (Vastra and Strax join them) try to save the world one more time: the Sweetville is the Winifred Gillyflower trial to save the most beautiful and the most intelligent from an disaster she was intending to do. She and the very old leech (the reptilians had very similar problems about 65 million years ago) was bound into a symbiotic creature – its red colored venom was produced in industrial quantities to transform and kill people.

I let you to discover yourselves how they finished their adventure. I only have to mention that Strax was funny as usual, but he did his job: he saved his team twice in this episode. The most cool scene from the show was in the end of the episode, when the children Clara is taking care about show her some old images (from 1970s’ and from 1983, but also a picture from Victorian London) and they blackmail her promising they would tell their father that their nanny was a time travel unless she was going to take them along in her next adventure. So, in the next episode the Doctor will have more companions than before… in an amusement park pillaged by Cybermen…

The director is Saul Metzstein, and the writer is Mark Gatiss.

The cast: Matt Smith (The Doctor), Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald), Jack Oliver Hudson (Urchin Boy), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Diana Rigg (Winifred Gillyflower), Dan Starkey (Strax), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Rachael Stirling (Ada Gillyflower).

“Yes, I’m the Doctor, you’re nuts, and I’m gonna stop you.”

“In the wrong hands, that venom could wipe out all life on this planet!”

In “The Crimson Horror” there’s something very odd about Mrs Gilly flower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people. There’s something even stranger about the bodies washing up in the river, all bright red and waxy.

When the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman), go missing, it’s up to Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny (Catrin Stewart) and Strax (Dan Starkey) to rescue them before they too fall victim to the Crimson Horror!

With special guests Diana Rigg and Diana’s daughter Rachel Stirling appearing together on screen for the first time!

Doctor Who Inside Look: Clara Oswald vs the TARDIS

As I told you earlier today, Clara and the Tardis were not relating one with each other as they should, as the Doctor would wanted.

“Clara, I think, is the first companion not so much to be hated by the TARDIS, but to be aware that the TARDIS isn’t that keen…”

Go inside the rocky relationship between new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) and the time- and space-traveling telephone box, along with Steven Moffat and Matt Smith.

Doctor Who, series 7, episode 10 – Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS

If I have to describe this episode of Doctor Who I would say it’s intense. Very intense. The fans that watched the series 7 so far noticed by now that the Tardis and Clara did not understood too  well… Or, at least, not as the Doctor would have liked… teasing from one girl to another being something normal lately (the last few episodes). That’s probably why the Tardis was impersonated by a woman last season, in The Doctor’s wife.

So the Doctor let Clara pilot the Tardis once, a test to make them deal with each other, a mistake that let some scavengers recovering lost abandoned ships to target the blue box that was apparently lost in space and to take it out. The 3 brothers Van Baalen from the salvage ship get the damaged Tardis inside and try to get inside. The succeed only when the Doctor convince them to save Clara, trapped and in danger, offering them the most valuable salvage of their lives.

Doctor’s power of persuasion is matched only by the lies he uses to force the Van Baalen brothers to do their best in saving Clara: he stars a false auto destruct mechanism setting it for one hour, then it reduce the time period to 30 minutes because of the protests. He would reduce it again to 15 minutes if his new prisoners would protest again. The danger is not small: the toxic gases and fire fill entire Tardis sections, unknown creatures (at least in the beginning) hunts the people inside. Even the self destruct was false, the Tardis engine overloaded and it was about to explode (as the Doctor discovered to some point). That’s why I said the episode was very intense (and funny from time to time, especially because of Clara): the heroes does not stay for a moment, many times the action does not stop and it’s very alert, and the surprises are not just a few.

The references about the interior of the Tardis are many spread all over the last 7 series, the library being somewhere next to the pool, the old control rooms being kept in storage, safe, etc. In this episode we did not get to the pool, but we visited (with Clara’s help) the building sized library. The Time Lord’s companion find out the name of the Doctor, preparing so the season 7 finale (The name of the Doctor), but she might not remember this essential element to the end of the episode. The solution found to solve the problems is rather familiar to the ones watching the 5 series and know about the cracks in time through the moments in the time, present and future are leaking.

I don’t want to insist about another details, it remains for you to watch the episode to find them out. But the solution to solve the problem is very simple and elegant, allowing space for mystery and other questions.

Director Mat King, writer Stephen Thompson, producer Marcus Wilson, executive producers Steven Moffat şi Caroline Skinner.

Cast: Matt Smith (Eleventh Doctor), Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald), Ashley Walters (Gregor Van Baalen), Mark Oliver (Bram Van Baalen), Jahvel Hall (Tricky Van Baalen).

Doctor Who – Series 7, episode 9 – Hide

If you love the ghost stories you will love episode 9, season 7 of new Doctor Who series. It does not have the name Hide for nothing: the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman) get to Caliburn House where the supernatural investigator Professor Alan Palmer (Dougray Scott) and his “emotional psychic” assistant Emma Grayling (Jessica Raineas) try to gather information about the ghost haunting the mansion. The historical data gathered about the Witch of the Well covered a few centuries when the Doctor and Clara dropped in.

More: besided the 3 human occupants and a Time Lord there were a creature inside the mansion, passing almost unnoticeable from one room to another. It frightened the Doctor and his companion in their trial to know the house and find the ghost.

In this episode everyone has his/her own agenda: the professor Alan Palmer wanted to find out more about the life beyond because of his experiences in the war, when he killed and people died because of him. The Doctor wanted to ask Emma Grayling about his current companion, the mistery girl that died twice and still was beside him. Clara had something against the TARDIS that did not accepted her easily, taunting her any time she could. Emma was in love with the professor and, as any love story, that was blocking her native empathy and she could not feel professor’s feeling toward her.

All these stories are around the ghost in the Caliburn House and the successful trials to contact her. The TARDIS offered the Doctor the possibility to recognize in this ghost another temporal traveler that got stranded into a pocket Universe – a bubble inside our own Universe, but almost apart from it. It was needed a strong medium in order to make a connection between the two Universes and to save the captives from the smaller one.

No, the plural is not a mistake. Because there were 2 prisoners: a beautiful dark time traveler woman named Hila (Kemi-Bo Jacobs) and the partner of the creature I’ve mentioned before. But I am letting you discover yourselves how the situation was solved and how the love stories were continued. I’ve already said to much, so I can mention only one element: there is a surprise I’ve not mentioned.

Written by Neil Cross. Cast: The Doctor (Matt Smith), Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), Alec Palmer (Dougray Scott), Emma Grayling (Jessica Raine), Hila (Kemi-Bo Jacobs), The Crooked Man (Aiden Cook).
