Contains a long lost interview with the late John Nathan-Turner on the BBC, the fans and his final series as producer. Also, it contains the complete history of how our planet and how we survived 92 alien invasions! And a full story about the Dalek’s first conquest.
Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffats’s penultimate stop on their tour of the world takes them to Mexico City, where they had to deal with the Mexican wave and the largest ever screening of the new episode, Deep Breath, was held for 3,000 very noisy Whovians!
Peter and Jenna reflect on their journey so far and how hard they’re going to find it going back to “normal” life. They also talk about all the incredible fans they’ve met along the way, and some of them in Mexico City tell us why they love Doctor Who.
A few days ago I’ve posted the report about the Dalek invasion in London. Meantime, BBC posted here a gallery of images with scenes from The Dalek Invasion of Earth recreated for An Adventure in Space and Time.
Below are only 2 of these images… the rest you can find on BBC.co.uk. Enjoy. 🙂
The Daleks invaded London this morning – as scenes from the iconic 1964 Dalek invasion were recreated for upcoming drama ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’. Check out this special behind-the-scenes video report with Mark Gatiss (who wasn’t exterminated!), and join him as the Daleks invade London.
Yesterday evening BBC broadcast the forth episode of series 7 called The power of Three. For Amy, Rory and the rest of the world it was the year of slow invasion starting the day when the Earth was filled with small cubes, very resistant and apparently harmless: they did not react and interact with anything. It was the year when the Doctor remained long enough to become a part of Ponds’ life instead taking them with him in adventures all over the Universe and Time. Of course, he did this very thing some time in the yesterday episode: a 6 weeks break in the long waiting until the cubes started to react, but that’s another story.
The forth episode is not quite the episode you would expect: the Doctor had to run, but he had also to wait. If you don’t enjoy waiting think what means to be the Doctor: a Time Lord what can go almost anywhere in space and time to moments when something interesting happens. Your most terrible torment can not be compared to the one of the Doctor when he has to wait. But he saved the world, again. Because the cubes started to react, to gather information about the details of the planet around them. And to kill humans.
I rather not say who was behind them. It’s about an ancient force, the one behind the story heard by all the youngÂ Gallifreyens every time when they had to behave. Until the end the Doctor and his companions found out it was not an invasion, it was an attempt of eradication of a species before spreadingÂ in the extraterrestrial space. But the DoctorÂ baffled that plan in his own way.
Among the actors there areÂ Matt Smith (The Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Mark Williams (Brian Williams), Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart), Steven Berkoff (Shakri), Selva Rasalingam (Ranjit), Alice O’Connell (Laura), Peter Cartwright (Arnold Underwood), David Beck (Orderly 1), Daniel Beck (Orderly 2), David Hartley (Unit ResearcherÂ ).
The director is Douglas Mackinnon, the producer is Marcus Wilson, the writer is Chris Chibnall.
The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay opens on July 20 and is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors to Cardiff over the next five years. Until then… according to Standard.co.uk, there is an invasion of Doctor Who monsters on loose in Cardiff: villains from hit sci-fi show Doctor Who went on the rampage a few days ago, in the morning, frightening young and old alike at a range of places throughout the Welsh capital.
After “escaping” from the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay, due to open next month, a Dalek, Cyberman, Scarecrow and Silent made their way to the city centre in time to greet commuters at Cardiff Central Station.
