Queen Victoria & the Werewolf – Tooth and Claw

Have you seen the red moon last night? If you have not seen it, you must have found about it…, right? Anyway, it’s a very good moment to remember the second episode of the second series of Doctor Who: Tooth and Claw.

Spending time with Queen Victoria in the remote Torchwood house, the Doctor is treated to the story of the beast that supposedly roams the valleys. But when the full moon reaches its peak, the Doctor discovers that the story is true, and Rose is trapped in the basement with a werewolf.

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? 😀 🙂

Charles Dickens and the Unquiet Dead, Doctor Who series 1, episode 3

Do you remember Charles Dickens and the Unquiet Dead, the third episode from new series of Doctor Who? The TARDIS lands in Cardiff 1869. There The Doctor and Rose team up with none other than Charles Dickens as they deal with a funeral parlor where it seems that corpses have come to life.

It is said that the BBC team loved Eve Myles (especially the writer Russell T. Davies) so much in the role of the maid that they cast her in the spin-off of Doctor Who, Torchwood.

Doctor Who and Torchwood shoes

Doctor Who Converse
Doctor Who Converse

I wasn’t looking for some running shoes (the Doctor runs a lot, isn’t it?) but I found some… I recently bought some shoes, I don’t need new ones but I consider buying the Doctor Who converse… just for show.

The shoes are the creation of Etsy user Tannim, you can order a pair for the a hundred bucks. Colored the iconic TARDIS blue, the shoes have several nice touches such as the Police Box sign on the side. One thing that isn’t clear: how you can figure out what size you need if they’re bigger on the inside than the outside.

For the fans of Torchwood there are some Converse that fits your desire, even if that series doesn’t really have any iconic visuals that are instantly associated with it. They are still pretty damn cool looking.

Comunitatea Doctor Who şi Torchwoord în România

Nu este deloc un secret că îmi place serialul Doctor Who. Faptul că am înregistrat domeniul Doctor Who BBC.com ÅŸi mă ocup de întreÅ£inerea paginii nu e decît o dovadă suplimentară, dacă mai este nevoie de aÅŸa ceva. Nici serialele adiacente, precum Torchwood (difuzat de AXN), nu-s rele, dar personal prefer să urmăresc acÅ£iunile Doctorului – au o altă savoare. Dar gusturile nu se discută, nu? 

Ceva mai devreme am căutat după Doctor Who Romania, iar în primele 100 de rezultate de la Google am găsit doar subtitrări, diverse ştiri sau comentarii despre episoadele serialului (majoritatea de pe Axn.ro) şi vreo două articole despre serial. Nu ştiu cîţi fani ale Doctorului sau ale echipei de la Torchwood se găsesc prin România, dar comunitatea pare să tinde undeva spre zero absolut.

Din punctul meu de vedere n-aveÅ£i decît să consideraÅ£i acest articol ca un început bun. Pentru moment secÅ£iunea serialul Doctor Who de pe Dan-Marius.ro ÅŸi Doctor Who BBC/Romania/ vor Å£ine locul “comunităţii” (ghilimele sînt absolut necesare în acest caz) româneÅŸti – dacă aÅ£i găsit acest articol cu siguranţă sînteÅ£i interesaÅ£i să faceÅ£i parte din aÅŸa ceva. LăsaÅ£i un mesaj ÅŸi alăturaÅ£i-vă ei.

John Barrowman on Doctor Who 50th anniversary and Torchwood 5

I am not a big fan of Torchwood, but I watched it with pleasure. I am curious and I wanted to know what the show has to offer: it is good, but not close to Doctor Who (from my point of view).

The next video is the perspective of John Barrowman about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary and Torchwood 5th season. I did not now about the new Torchwood series, but it looks interesting enough to watch it (if and when it’s going to be released).

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.

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. 😀
