(Possibly on Harry Potter levels, but we’ll leave that up for debate)
I think we’ve realized this somewhere along the space and time continuum a few years back, that I really love this thing called Doctor Who and guess what Pink guys and dolls? Season 11 is coming! *yay!*
Okay, unless you’re a sci-fi fan, have some sort of anger towards David Tennant because you think he’s an idiot for leaving, pay attention to all things Barty Crouch Jr., and/or watch BBC America, I do not, by any stretch of the imagination, believe that this post is for you.
Matt Smith’s Doctor Who
So onwards to the TARDIS and the Season 5, 11th Doctor Clips:-
The Italian Vampire Chicks
Interview from Doctor Who: Confidential with Matt Smith (who plays the 11th Doctor)
Matt Smith on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross
Interview with Karen Gillan who plays Amy Pond, the Doctor’s next companion
So, if you’re not excited by now, you are a not so awesome glow worm, in my biased opinion.
Interview with Matt Smith from the Press Screening of the Series 5
…aaannnddd the opening sequence from The 11th Hour, the first episode of Series 5
The 5th series installment of the 11th Doctor Who will premiere on April 3, 2010 in the United Kingdom on the BBC. Us folks in the United States…well, we might have to wait a month
From the new logos, to interviews, to BBC America pulling out all the stops, the BBC realizes that a lot hangs in the balance with their beloved franchise.
It needs to succeed.
David Tennant, who played the 10th Doctor, brought the show back from out from obscurity (alongside Russell T. Davies) back in 2006. His Doctor, not only reinvented the series, but has thrust it into epic cult stature – thus, making his departure a big “Oh! No he didn’t?!”
Now that both have left the franchise (taken over by Steve Moffatt who was a part of the original 10th Doctor production team), the BBC understands that fans, critics and haters alike will be watching The 11th Hour with more than just a little scrutiny.
I mean, a few days ago, I was walking in the Financial District, where I now live in Manhattan, and saw a bus with a GIANT 11th Doctor poster on the side of it. I almost took a picture (but this is New York City, I didn’t want to get run over).
At this rate, I seriously will not be surprised if Matt Smith appears on Leno, Letterman or any other American late night spots. Better yet, I’m almost certain he will eventually pop up on Regis & Kelly or something. Eventually, if all goes as planned, I think perhaps a SNL skit might rear a head or three.
But we’ll see.
I mean the readership for the Doctor Who magazine, aimed at pre-teens, is around 500,000 in the United Kingdom and that’s just a fan magazine. Not to mention the fact that, the end of the 10th Doctor on BBC America with The End of Time specials put BBC America’s viewership into the millions for single show — a first — if that’s any indication.
So, my little Whovians, we shall see.
We shall see, indeed.
