Celebrate 47 Years Of Doctor Who With Us

As you may have already realised, over on the forum we are celebrating the birthday of Doctor Who today. We have opened a specially built section of the forum for fans to talk about their favourite bits and pieces from over the years as well as threads dedicated to each incarnation of the Doctor, the companions, the villains, the people behind the scenes and much more, with plenty of games and polls still to come.

Come and sign up and join in with us as we share our favourite memories of the show, looking back on 47 years of history and the next 47 to come. Just click the link below


A Tribute To The Eleven Doctors

Take a trip down memory lane with us today as we celebrate 47 years of Doctor Who. The show would be nothing without our favourite timelord and here is a video dedicated to his many incarnations.

A Tribute To The Companions

To celebrate Doctor Who's 47th Birthday, over on the forum we have opened a specially dedicated section. Here we take a look at the companions.

The Doctor wouldnt be the same if he didnt have his companions to look after him, and someone in turn for him to look after. Since the show began so many people have travelled with him in the TARDIS that it is easy to forget some of the ones from the past and the effect they had on his character and the show in general. Like every incarnation of the Doctor, everyone has their favourite companion and though some of them may have their roles within the show questioned, each and every one of them have helped to shape the Doctor in some way. This video brings together every one of those companions as well as several of his friends from throughout the decades.

47 Years & Counting

Covering every era, every Doctor and every companion, this celebratory video sums up all the reasons we love Doctor Who and why after 47 years we are still tuning in. Enjoy.

Celebrating 47 Years Of Travelling In Time & Space

The very first episode of Doctor Who aired on BBC television at 17:15 on 23 November 1963. In the first episode we were introduced to the Doctor, his grandaughter Susan and school teachers Ian Chesterton and Barabara Wright who were soon to become his travelling companions. Sydney Newman, who was Head Of Drama at the time was mainly responsible for developing the programme, while Verity Lambert was brought on board as producer. William Hartnell was cast in the role of the Doctor while Carol Ann Ford, William Russell and Jaqueline Hill made up the rest of the cast.

The programme was originally intended to appeal to family audiences and was seen as a vehicle for teaching children about science and history, though this changed considerably over the years as historical stories were seen as less popular and so became less used in favour of the futuristic and alien themed stories. It wasn't until the show returned in 2005 after its cancellation that a greater emphasis was put back into telling stories set during Earth's history.

Throughout the years the cast changed enormously and the show was produced, directed, written and run by many different and outstanding people, though despite all the changes both in front and behind the camera, the programme continued to be made by the BBC drama department's for 26 series before it's initial 'suspension' in 1989. Fans were outraged at the BBC's 'agenda' to get rid of one of Britains most loved shows, especially after the adventures of the newest Doctor, the seventh at the time, had seen the show start to increase its viewership with many fans feeling that the writing, acting and production was better than it had been in years. Despite the protests, episode 3 of Survival on December 6th 1989 marked the last regular episode of Doctor Who for nearly 16 years.

Despite the initial cancellation, rumours were rife for a long time that the BBC was eager to bring Doctor Who back in some form and negotiations were taking place behind the scenes for a long time before fans were rewarded with the news that the BBC, BBC Worldwide, Universal Television and Fox were working together on a television movie which would act as a pilot in the hopes of bringing around a new American co produced television series. Paul McGann was cast in the role of the Eighth Doctor and the movie finally hit screens in 1996. Despite being a ratings success in the UK, it didnt fair so well in the US and no further series materialised.

It seemed for many that all hope was lost until one fateful day in September 2003 when BBC Television announced the in-house production of a new series after several years of unsuccessful attempts by BBC Worldwide to find backing for a feature film version. The executive producers of the new incarnation of the series were writer Russell T Davies and BBC Cymru Wales Head of Drama Julie Gardner. Understandably, fans were exstatic.

Doctor Who finally returned to our screens with over 9 million viewers with the episode "Rose" on BBC One on Saturday 26th March 2005. Since then the show has seen three new incarnations of the Doctor and gone from strenth to strenth, picking up new viewers each year with 4 full series and a group of specials already aired, a sixth series currently filming and a seventh already commisioned. It takes home bags of awards each year and is one of the most critically revered shows in the world, currently broadcasting on over 50 countries around the globe.

This week the show celebrates it's 47th anniversary. 47 years of Doctors. 47 years of companions. 47 years of villains, aliens, friends, planets, adventures and above all, 47 years of some of the greatest episodes of television ever made. We have a whole section of the forum dedicated to this special day. Come and check it out HERE

Return To Earth Chart Placing

Return To Earth, the new Doctor Who game for the Nintento Wii has this weekend charted at number 11 on the Official Nintendo Wii Chart.

While many online sites are calling this a failure, its placing at eleven is actually a result of only 2 days worth of sales which when put into perspective isnt actually that bad.

Assuming sales stay steady, then a higher chart placing is expected on next weeks chart.

Doctor Who Boosts Children In Need Audience

It seems the strength of Doctor Who is enough to make anything more popular these days. After setting a new record for largest ever channel audience when he appeared on The Sarah Jane Adventures earlier this month (though this record was broken the following week), the showing of the trailer for this years Christmas Special during Children In Need managed to bring the telethon its highest audience of the night.

Averaging between 6 and 8 million viewers for the majority of the night, the 5 minute slot allocated to Doctor Who saw the audience jump to well over 11 million viewers, taking the show to its peak for the evening. Not bad for a few minutes work.

Christmas Special Story Outline

Those great guys over at the BBC press office have released a short synopsis of this years Christmas Special to tease us a little further. Its nothing that we haven't already learned from this months DWM, but it's still worth a look.
“Amy and Rory are trapped on a crashing space liner, and the only way The Doctor can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser, in a festive edition of the time-travelling adventure written by Steven Moffat. But is Kazran Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve?”

Doctor Who Hits The Music Charts

Music written by Murray Gold from the soundtrack to Series 5 of Doctor Who has charted in the UK Indie Singles Charts, with two entries in the top 40

At the time of the last official chart update, the soundtrack had been released for just 6 days and the two tracks, which weren't officially released as singles, charted on the strength of downloads alone.

'Doctor Who XI', which is track number 1 on the Series 5 soundtrack went straight in at the Number 30 position, while 'I Am The Doctor', which is track number 9 on the soundtrack managed to go even better and so far peak at Number 16.

More entries are expected later today when the official charts are updated.

Richard Nixon For Episodes 1 & 2?

I recieved an email earlier this week that I only actually checked today from one of my old spoiler sources who I haven't heard from in a while telling me that this years opening two parter will feature shamed American President Richard Nixon.

According to recent reports and speculation, it was believed that the Doctor would be meeting John F Kennedy, with many people speculating that he would be that man that River kills. Though with this story supposedly taking place in 1969, the year Nixon was inaugurated into office and six years after Kennedy was assassinated, it would make sense for Nixon to be the President in question.

As with all similar stories, this one is to be treated as speculation for the time being, but now you know what I know.

2010 Christmas Special Trailer

If you didnt get to see it just now on BBC1, then now is your chance to see how awesome the trailer is for the A Christmas Carol

Series 6 Episode Details Revealed

Lots of info coming through over the last few days about the Christmas Special and the first few episodes of Series 6 thanks to DWM and our brilliant forum members. Here is a breakdown of what we know.

A Christmas Carol
Amy and Rory are on their honeymoon during the episode, and run into trouble when the pleasure cruise spaceship they’re travelling on finds itself under attack from “something very nasty”. The spaceship is orbiting an alien planet, which is where the Doctor is for a considerate part of the story. This therefore causes Amy and Rory to be separated from the Time Lord for the majority of the episode.

Neil Gaimans Episode
In this episode, the TARDIS breaks down on an alien junkyard world, which is where the Doctor encounters Idris played by Suranne Jones.

"By the time the Doctor and friends meet her, she’s gone mad and ends up biting the Time Lord. . . but not on the bum".

"It’s rumoured Idris and the Doctor have met before, so who could she be? A new incarnation of the Rani, perhaps? Maybe the Master? Or a future version of the Doctor him. . . er, herself?"

Wii Game Slated

The brand new Doctor Who game which was today released on the Wii console has been panned by critics. The Official Nintendo Magazine had this to say:
If you're a child, and you're reading this, you deserve better. I'm sorry people my age have slapped you in the face like this. But use the lesson well. Remember the hatred games like this rightfully deserve, and vow that you'll never produce such an execrable turd in your own adult life. Promise me that, and this won't have all been in vain. Playing Return To Earth is a profoundly miserable experience. The story's abysmal, an incoherent, contrived excuse to throw the big villains in. The script is also bad - odd lines of excruciatingly awkward dialogue sandwiched between tech-babble whose only purpose is to explain the irrelevant, repetitive gameplay.

While SFX opined that the games were:
Clearly made by people who hate games, sci-fi, and everything decent about humanity

Have you got the game yet? What are yout thoughts?

Pictures From Utah

The lovely members over on the forum have been updating over the last 24 hours with some great photo's from the set of the Utah filming. The Doctor, Amy, Rory and River are all there, though fans of the Fez may be upset to see that the Doctor has a new hat in his life....

For more pictures and to join in with all the speculation, head over to the forum

Matt Smith On The Late Late Show

Despite the annoying guy who is hosting the show, Matt Smiths appearance on The Late Late Show was a good one, and in case you weren't in America to see it, here it is. As far as i know, it is also the first appearance of an incumbent Doctor on an American prime time chat show.

Two Episode Titles Revealed

According to the CV of Sarah Smart, who has a guest starring role in episodes 5 and 6 of the upcoming series of Doctor Who, the titles for the episodes are:

The Rebel Flesh and Gangers

DoctorWhoSpoilers, where this news was found speculates that the episodes will involve biological experimentation, though no other official information is known about the story.

All About America

Over on the forum this evening, Peri-Peri posted an interesting excerpt from an interview with Peirs Wenger where he revealed that Series 6 is 'all about America'.
Well, I can say with great anticipation and excitement the new season starts off in two parts which is set in America. The team left the UK on Saturday and is traveling out to Utah, to Mojave, where they’re filming some scenes. There are scenes set in New York and San Francisco. It is Doctor Who’s love letter to the States. Last year started with the TARDIS crash-landing on Big Ben in London and that was an opportunity for British audiences to be reminded of Doctor Who’s British heritage. But this year, it’s all about America, it’s all about taking the show out to the States and seeing what Doctor Who will feel like set in America and in some very iconographic parts of the American landscape.

The topic is one that is highly debated amongst fandom and this will no doubt add fuel tot he fire. What are your opinions?

Skaro Revisited?

Moffat has made some obscure references in this months DWM magazine, which some people (secretly myself included) are thinking/hoping may mean that we will be seeing a return visit to Skaro.

When referring to the Doctor he mentions how he 'remembers being on Skaro with Leela' and how the production team were trying to figure out who has met the Daleks and Davros.

Whether this is idle chit chat on set that the Moff has decided to use to drive us crazy with speculation or hints at something to come is anyones guess, but for the moment lets treat it as a bit of fun yet wild speculation.

Series 6 Writing News

This months DWM is awash with info about series 6 and news that will no doubt excite a lot of fans is the news from Steven Moffat that Matthew Graham, co creater of Life On Mars will be writing for the series.

Little is known about his story, however it was revealed that it will be a two parter and will cover episodes five and six.

It has also been anounced that Moffat will be penning episodes seven and eight which will air on surrounding sides of the mid season hiatus, so you can be sure to expect the usual Moffat type cliffhanger to have a hold of you throughout the summer.

Doctor Who Magazine #428 Cover Art 2

The inside cover of this months Doctor Who magazine has finally been revealed today and its pretty awesome. If you are one of the lucky ones to subscribe then you would have been in for a treat when it landed on your mat this morning.

This months issue comes with a host of spoilery tidbits which I will reveal shortly, but for now lets check out the cover of the Soap Opera special.

SJA Breaking Records

When Death of the Doctor aired on the CBBC channel a few weeks back it surpassed all expectations and gave the channel its highest ever ratings. But not content to rest on its laurels, the following story, The Empty Planet went one better and knocked Death Of The Doctor down into second place and stole the top spot away.

With 0.99 million viewers, The Empty Planet part 1 is the highest rated episode of a TV show that the channel has ever aired. SJA now holds the top three spots. Not bad for a show in it's fourth series.

Doctor Who Magazine #428 Cover Art

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine promises updates from series 6 as well as a free double sides poster featuring a classic Dalek and Cyberman. Issue 428 also comes with all the usual reviews, news and the comic strip. It is available from this Thursday.

Utah Filming Reports

Over on the forum, Exterminate has reported that filming is to be set amongst other location in Utah, in Goblin Valley and on the Salt Flats, which has got people speculating as to whether we may be seeing some alien planets due to the obscure landscape styles. Below are pictures of both.



Two very different landscape styles found within a few miles of each other should give the production team plenty to work with. What do you think? Will Utah just be Utah, or will the use the opportunity to take us to another galaxy?

The Death Of Amy Pond

Lots of fans and media types have been speculating for a while that we will witness the death of Amy Pond in the upcoming series of Doctor Who, but Steven Moffat has spoken out this week and dismissed the rumours. In a roundabout sort of way at least. When asked about killing off characters he had this to say..
"In the old series, they did off a couple of them. I'm not saying we'll never do it, but it's not that kind of a show. It's not gritty. It's kind of a lovely, life-affirming, optimistic show without a cynical bone in its body. It's almost odd when you see it in competition with things like Battlestar Galactica, and you think, 'Well that's not us at all.' We're the story of a wonderful man from space who can travel in a telephone box! But I'm not guaranteeing I won't kill someone in the future!"
Now Moff isnt afraid to tell us the odd porky, so perhaps we can never really be too sure about how serious he is being, but Matt Smith has also spoken out to say that he wouldnt like to see the character be killed and will make it his 'personal mission' to make sure she stays. So despite the rumours, it would seem that Amy is safe. At least for the time being.

River Revealed

Steven Moffat has this week been speaking to New York Magazine and has promised that we will soon be coming to grips with the answers of the mystery surrounding River Song. Speaking of her story in series 6 he said
"Well, you will find out who she is and what's going on and how it all makes sense. And that will explain a number of things. I'm writing the episode right now where The Doctor finds out who she is. We're not just going to endlessly tease."
Putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with a double digit, I would assume that if he is currently writing the script for the episodes, then it is likely that we will be getting the reveal either at the cliffhanger or in the second half of the series to be aired later in the year, though more likely the latter. We also found out earlier this week that Amy finds out a secret about River that River asks her to keep to herself. Could it be her connection to the Doctor in his future?

What are your thoughts? Let us know below.

Turning On The Christmas Lights

Some of you lucky people were able to get down to Cardiff last night to witness Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill turning on the cities lights for the official beginning of Christmas in the city, but for those of you not fortunate enough to get there, then here is the moment that the TARDIS team lit up the city

Utah Filming Details

A costing report apparantly from the production of the upcoming Utah location shooting for series 6 has been doing the rounds today and found its way over to our forum thanks to Sandiwich11. The sheet, amongst other things, indicates that filming will be taking place between 17th and 26th November and will be costing a fair amount of pennies. Or cents if you want to get into the American spirit.

Death Of The Doctor Breaks Record

Two weeks ago the Doctor turned up in the Sarah Jane Adventures for a little adventure of his own, and the story, which was penned by ex showrunner, Russell T Davies, proved to be a hit with the fans as it broke records for the CBBC channel and the two episodes became the highest and second highest rated programmes on the channel ever.

The story, which also featured the return of Katy Manning as Jo (Jones) Grant had 0.92 million watching part one and 0.96 million tuning in for part two. When the figures for the BBC repeat come in it should take both to well over 1.5m.

Series 5 Outtakes

There are lots of versions of this video doing the rounds, and the BBC are following them and removing them, so watch this one quickly while it still works. It has the cast of series 5 messing around, having fun and no doubt causing headaches for the crew as they fluff their lines and mess up scenes. Enjoy

Return To Earth Clip

Nintendo TV have released a few clips and a short interview about the upcoming Doctor Who Wii release, Return to Earth. The video is below and the Doctor Who stuff starts at about 2:48.

Torchwood 4 Interview With RTD And Julie Gardner

Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner have given an interview about Torchwood 4 explaining how it came about, where they plan to take it and what's in store for the show after the next series.

Now, the interview is really long so you should GO HERE to read it all, but here is a little snippet for you.
The monster-of-the-week stories were brilliant, in their day, in Torchwood, but having discovered this new format, I think it’s more ambitious and intelligent. It allows you to stop and take pause and look at the world. Those ambitions are admirable. While I’m on the show, that will never stop. While the show keeps running, we’ll never go back to the week-to-week stories.
And here is another...
I think the show works very well as an examination of the human race because there’s not really many other races we can examine. So, yeah, it is about us. I think all great science fiction comes down to that, in the end. The best metaphors in Buffy came down to, “What’s it like to be in high school, as a kid?” It’s the same with Torchwood: The New World. It’s about us and our decisions and our lives, and how we live with each other and how we die with each other. That forms the core of the story.

Watch The Series 5 DVD Bonus Scenes Here

As many of you will know, the series 5 DVD release comes with two specially filmed sequences available only on the DVD, called Inside The TARDIS. The first is set between the events of Flesh and Stone and Vampires Of Venice and has the Doctor explaining to Amy about all his previous companions. You even get to see some really cool pictures.

The second is set at the end of The Eleventh Hour and has Amy questioning the Doctor about his look and the Doctor explaining about the TARDIS. Its actually really funny in parts.

Special thanks to DAK for finding these and uploading them to the forum

Doctor Who Experience Information

Over the last day or so a lot of information and artist imagary has come to light about the new Doctor Who Experience which is launching in London in 2011 before moving to Cardiff in 2013. Over on the forum, Exterminate has posted some information about what to expect.

The Doctor Who Experience starts in London on Sunday 20th February 2011 at London’s Olympia Two venue (Hammersmith Road, London W14 8UX). Opening times are 10am-6pm daily.

Visitors will be invited to step through a crack in time to become the Doctor’s companion on an adventure. Their challenge will be to reunite the Doctor with the TARDIS whilst fending off threats from a Dalek spaceship and Weeping Angels along the way, before exploring the wonders of Doctor Who at an out of this world exhibition.

The Doctor Who Experience allows visitors to join the Doctor on a journey through time and space, encountering some of the best-loved and scariest monsters from the series. Special scenes filmed with current Doctor Matt Smith combine with amazing special effects and the chance to enter a recreation of the modern TARDIS interior topped off by a breathtaking 3D finale. The walk through experience is a fully contained interactive Doctor Who adventure.

Displays will include items never seen before including original costumes, the Tom Baker TARDIS police box and two authentic TARDIS sets from the eras of David Tennant and Peter Davison. The public will also be able to get up close and personal with iconic sets from recent series, including the Pandorica Box and Chair and confront numerous monsters including several generations of the Daleks and Cybermen as well as Silurians an Ice Warrior and a Zygon.
