Doctor Who Movie?

Rumours have been flying around once more about a Doctor Who movie after, in an interview, Billie Piper seemed to hint that there might be one. While talking to Sara Cox, she said:

"Well, I’ve heard that they’re doing it and that they want David to do it, but I think he’s slightly anxious that there’ll be big American producers on board and that they’ll try and hijack the whole thing and cast someone like Johnny Depp."

Sounds interesting! Nothing has been confirmed at the moment, but it's a nice thought! Thanks to WhovianNet for this information.

A brand new piece of Merchandise featuring the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond is ready to pre-order on and it can be seen below. It's a jigsaw featuring a brand new image of the pair, as well as a bunch of Weeping Angels who are returning during the new Series. For more information go here.

Thanks to Nebula One for this!

Billie Piper Interview

Billie Piper has been talking about Doctor Who in an interview with Digital Spy and Doctor Who Online has some extracts online:

You returned to film some scenes for Tennant's final Doctor Who outing. How was that?

"It was weird because I didn't have a full script and I had to do it in three hours. It was after filming Secret Diary in the day and it was too short! I didn't know anything about the story. I wish I'd been there for the whole episode - but that would have been a bit tedious!"

Did you get emotional knowing David would be leaving?

"Yes, I hate it that he's left! But then I know Matt Smith really well and I love him and I think he's such a brilliant actor. The role couldn't have gone to a better guy. He's capable of that. He's got big shoes to fill, but I'm certain he can do it."

What did you think when you watched David's final episodes back?

"Do you know, I haven't seen it yet! I went away for Christmas and New Year so it would have been a bit weird trying to sly off and watch an episode of Doctor Who on my own! I definitely will though. Was it good? Did you cry?"

We cried our eyes out! Is there room for Rose to return at a later date?

"I think it's done now, isn't it? I think that ship has sailed. That old, wooden ship! I really loved doing it, but Doctor Who has moved on - it's different people, different crew, different production team and I can't keep going back. It's ridiculous! It's time to move on..."

I agree with her; it's time for new companions!

Series Five News

I'm sorry about the lateness of this post but here is a quick round up of the latest Series Five news. Firstly, Stephen Fry has expressed an interest in writing for Doctor Who in the future. He said, "I look forward so much to seeing Matt Smith and I’m sure he’s going to be wonderful. If I get time (to write) it’ll be a thrill, I can’t think of anything nicer."

In other news, Harry Potter star Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy, Draco's mother) has been confirmed to star in an upcoming episode of Series Five. She is apparently going to play one of the vampires in the episode entitled 'Vampires of Venice.'

Can't wait!

Time Lord Victorious at the NTAs

Doctor Who did fantastically at last night's National Television Awards, winning two awards in total. The programme itself won 'Most Popular Drama' and David Tennant won 'Outstanding Drama Performance' for his role as the 10th Doctor. He also presented an award for 'Most Popular Star Travel Documentary,' which went to Stephen Fry and his trip around America.

What a nice way to round off his time as the Doctor!

Grow Your Own 10th Doctor!

I was randomly searching through the internet (the lack of news is really annoying) and came across this picture. I'm not sure if it's a real product that you can actually buy, but it still made me laugh:

I think it's based on growing a new Doctor from the hand in 'Journey's End', but it's a nice enough idea...

Your Favourite 10th Doctor Moments

I'm actually very shocked that I haven't done something like this sooner but anyway, Sean from Into The Vortex has asked me to gather some comments as a tribute to the 10th Doctor for a special video that he will soon be making. It would be nice if you could say what your favourite moment is, maybe a quote or an episode, perhaps a certain piece of acting that has stuck in your mind.

Even if you don't want your thoughts to appear in the video, they'll be nice to share anyway, for Ten's sake, so please get commenting!

Is this a taster for the new TARDIS interior?

During the regeneration, the Doctor made a pretty big mess of the TARDIS and we all know there will be a new interior for the 11th Doctor, but is this what it will look like...? It is, apparently, another room in the TARDIS, but doesn't this mean the main room will be similar looking?

Thanks to combom for the picture!

Series 5 Info!

SFX has an interesting article on their website regarding the episode entitled 'Vampires Of Venice' written by Toby Whithouse. They have some random facts:

At one point the Doctor says the word ‘diabetic’.
One character is a talking otter.
There is an almost painfully beautiful gag about cheese and biscuits.
One of those isn't true.

Also, when asked if the 11th Doctor will say 'Geronimo,' Whithouse replied, "No, he doesn't say Geronimo! I had no idea that was going to be his catchphrase!"

Thanks to Will from Will and Seb for telling me about this!

They also have an interesting article about the things we learn from the new edition of The Writer's Tale. Read it here.

New 11th Doctor Picture!

It's just a week after the regeneration and a brand new picture of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor has been revealed! It seems like he's holding the new sonic screwdriver, but he certainly does look right for the part, in my opinion. Bring on Series Five!

This image features on the cover of the new look DWM which is available to buy now in the UK!

Your Favourite 10th Doctor Episode

Over the past few weeks, you've been voting for your favourite episode starring the tenth Doctor and the overall winner was Doomsday!

This tearjerker of an episode features a battle between the Daleks and the Cybermen, Jackie and Pete Tyler reuniting and that heartbreaking goodbye scene between Rose and the Doctor on Bad Wolf Bay. Talking of which, why not relive the moment right here?

It's quite sad that I know the words for this off by heart...

DVD Covers Revealed!

The official covers for the last of the tenth Doctor's DVDs have been revealed and can be seen below. They show the artwork for a special The Waters of Mars and The End of Time boxset and then the boxset containing all the specials. They will both be released on January 11th at the RRP of £24.99 and £39.99.

I took some screencaps of the new Series Five trailer and here they are... I apologise about the blurriness but it's the best that I could do.

Looks good, doesn't it?
