Countdown to Doctor Who

Countdown to Doctor WhoIt’s Doctor Who Week of Geek here at Geeks of Doom, where we’re counting down to the launch of Doctor Who Series 6!

Joining us for our preview of Series 6 episode of the TARDISblend is Andy Sorcini aka MrBabyMan, co-host of The Drill Down. We kick off the show speculating on what can be expected in the opening episode of the season, The Impossible Astronaut, directed by Toby Haynes and written by showrunner Steven Moffat.

The first episode is part one of a two-part adventure, which concludes in episode 2 entitled Day of the Moon. The adventure sees Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor facing new villains The Silents, who are tied into the “Silence/Silents Will Fall” meme from last season. It also sees the return of Alex Kingston as River Song, and of course Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill reprising their companion roles as Amy Pond and Rory Williams respectively.

We also discuss how much attention the new season is getting, and the amazing promotion BBC and BBC America are pushing behind the show. The level of anticipation among fans is at an all-time high. Additionally, we talk of new fans coming to the show, and debate what Classic Doctor Who episodes they should consider checking out.

We run through the episode list for the season, and also briefly touch on Torchwood: Miracle Day. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

Week of Geek: Countdown to Doctor Who, Series Six

With the new season of Doctor Who coming up on us quickly on April 23, there’s a level of anticipation and excitement among fans online I’ve not seen for quite some time. What’s interesting is I continually find myself running into new fans who have only ever seen the new Doctor Who series that has been going since 2005.

Indeed, to a generation of Doctor Who fans, there have been only three Doctors since they discovered the adventures of the Time Lord: Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith. And inevitably, many of these fans find themselves wanting to dive deeper into the mythos and legend of the good Doctor.

And why shouldn’t they? The series has had a legacy spanning close to half a century, with some amazing stories being created from some of the greatest creative minds including Terrence Dicks, Douglas Adams, Terry Nation, and so many more.

Week of Geek: Countdown to Doctor Who, Series Six

The Impossible AstronautThe promotion by BBC for the upcoming series of Doctor Who is continuing in high gear, as they have released yet another video, this time an episode-specific trailer. The opening episode of Doctor Who Series 6 is called The Impossible Astronaut, and is the first part of an adventure that will conclude in the second episode of the season, Day of the Moon. You can see the trailer, and another clip with Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, at the bottom of this post.

The Impossible Astronaut kicks off the season with a reunion between The Doctor and his companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), and the mysterious River Song (Alex Kingston). The group is soon pulled into an adventure that begins with deadly consequences, and pits them against the new villains known only as The Silents.

The Impossible Astronaut

The BBC and BBC America are pulling no punches when it comes to promoting the upcoming Series 6 of Doctor Who. Less than a day after the BBC released two preview clips from opening episode The Impossible Astronaut, BBC America has released a neat Behind The Scenes video that gives some fantastic snippets and clips from the same episode, and its concluding second part, Day of the Moon. You can check out this awesome Doctor Who Insider at the bottom of this post.

In the video, Steven Moffat highlights his intentions behind “bringing Doctor Who to America” (or is it “bringing America to Doctor Who“?) and director Toby Haynes discusses how different this episode will feel for Doctor Who; while cast members Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill talk about the amazing fun they had while filming — giving references to other films that they (and we) all love such as Indiana Jones and Back to the Future.

What’s cool about the video is that it provides some additional snippets and clips from the first two episodes, giving Doctor Who fans another little glimpse at the feel of the episode. Mark Sheppard, who plays Canton Everett Delaware III in the episodes, has a brilliant line in the footage: “America is being invaded!”

The Impossible Astronaut

The BBC has released two new clips from the first episode of Doctor Who Series 6, entitled The Impossible Astronaut. Directed by Toby Haynes, written by showrunner Steven Moffat, and filmed on-location in the United States, The Impossible Astronaut is the first part of an adventure that concludes in the second episode, Day of the Moon. You can view the preview clips at the bottom of this post — but be warned again, for more spoilery goodness is abound!

The videos released by BBC seem to be near the beginning of the episode, featuring a reunion between the Stetson-wearing Doctor and his companions, and a deep but dark conversation between the heroes inside the TARDIS as they ask the Doctor for his help “without asking why.” There’s a wonderful reference in the second clip to the moment of when Amy first met The Doctor, which is a nice touch. Those after clues to the opening episodes might want to make note that the Doctor is only wearing the Stetson in one of the clips… In the words of River Song herself, “Spoilers…!”

Doctor Who

It’s less than two weeks until Series 6 of Doctor Who kicks off worldwide on television screens, and it’s getting to be a very exciting time to be a fan of the Time Lord. BBC and BBC America have released a whole bunch of new photos from the new season — including a sneak peak of the new creepy villain the Doctor will be facing in the opening two episodes, The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon.

On top of that, new photos released by the BBC to media outlets give fans more previews of upcoming shows, including the “pirate” episode Curse of the Black Spot, the Neil Gaiman-penned The Doctor’s Wife, and confirmation (finally!) of the return of a classic villain. You can view the images at the bottom of this post.

Bear in mind, the photos (as well as the rest of the content of this post) could be considered spoilers — so consider to have been alerted!

Doctor WhoFollowing WonderCon 2011, we are launching not one, but TWO episodes of TARDISblend this week! The promotions and publicity for Doctor Who Series 6 is moving full speed ahead, with many revelations, news items, rumors, spoilers, and other stuff abound. Co-host Tom Cheredar was on assignment for Geeks of Doom at WonderCon this year and got to catch up with both Toby Haynes and Neil Gaiman.

For episode 21 of the TARDISblend podcast, we focus on Tom’s interview with living legend Neil Gaiman, as he discusses his writing of the fourth episode of Doctor Who Series 6, enigmatically titled The Doctor’s Wife. While Gaiman remains mostly elusive about specific details about his episode, he does discuss a lot about his experience in working with Steven Moffat. Following the interview, Greg and Tom discuss the rumors and spoilers surrounding The Doctor’s Wife, including the footage shown at WonderCon involving an Ood and… Time Lords?

In addition, we take a look at the developments in the world of Torchwood: Miracle Day, which is scheduled to premiere in July. We examine the teasers and promo material being published and pushed out currently by BBC Worldwide and Starz USA, and discuss how things come to pass to set up the scene for Miracle Day. What happens to Jack Harkness? How and why does he return to Earth?

Miracle DayAs promotion and publicity for Doctor Who Series 6 marches forward around the world, BBC Worldwide and Starz USA are kicking off their promotion for Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood. While the series isn’t scheduled until July, the publicity is starting early, with new poster art and a teaser video being released over the last couple of weeks.

Now, BBC and Starz have released two new images to promote Torchwood: Miracle Day, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

First up is a photo of the new Torchwood team, which looks like a still from filming. The image includes show regulars John Barrowman and Eve Myles, along with new allies Esther Drummond and Mekhi Phifer.

The second image is a new promo poster design from BBC Worldwide featuring everyone’s favorite hero-who-cannot-die, Captain Jack Harkness. This design comes with the new slogan, “Death is not an option”, indicating that now Planet Earth is facing the same immortal dilemma as Captain Jack: they cannot die!

Doctor WhoFollowing Wondercon 2011, we are launching not one, but TWO episodes of TARDISblend this week!

Co-host Tom Cheredar was on assignment for Geeks of Doom at WonderCon this year and got to catch up with both Toby Haynes and Neil Gaiman.

For episode 20 of the TARDISblend, we focus on the interview with Toby Haynes and on the two-part launching episode for Series 6 of Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. Taking a look at the confirmed information, the spoilers, and the rumors, Tom and Greg speculate what the two opening shows may hold for the Doctor and his companions — in a season which (by some indications) may redefine how you view the show.

In addition to some of the news and rumors, we pay tribute to two Doctor Who legends who have since passed away: Nicholas Courtney aka The Brigadier, and Michael Gough aka The Celestial Toymaker. We reflect on their contributions to the show and to entertainment in general, and mourn these big losses.
