In a bid to remind us that there’s a new series of “Doctor Who” imminent – oh really, I hadn’t noticed – dear old Beeb’s publicity ninja monkeys have posted a series of movie-style posters for this first run of episodes.
This one, for episode five – “The Angels Take Manhattan“ – is my favourite…
Nifty, huh? No impending dread or sense that Everything Will Be Going Wrong Quite Soon there, then…
Den of Geek has the full collection here.
I know what I’ll be doing on September 1st 2012 at 7:20pm…
Now that I’ve been Freshly Pressed – Thanks, nice WordPress editors – I get a hint of what it’s like to write for a blog like Kotaku or The Mary Sue. People are reading me! Quick – look busy!
In that spirit, I’m delighted by news from dear old Auntie Beeb today, which has confirmed that “Doctor Who” will be back on September 1st for viewers in the UK and US, with the first tranche of episodes finishing on September 29th. The season picks up again in Spring 2013 – after the Christmas special, which introduces new companion Clara, played by Jenna Louise Coleman.
So, new “Who” quite soon, then not so much for a while, with seasonal “Who” filling the void until we’ve seen off the Winter and it’s time to start geeking out again in the spring. I can get with that schedule and eagerly await what else will be shown next year to mark the good Gallifreyan’s special anniversary…
Over at Den of Geek, there’s a spoiler-free review from last night’s BFI screening of the first episode of season seven of “Doctor Who”, “Asylum of the Daleks”.
Pleasingly, we can expect the unexpected from Steven Moffat‘s first hands-on work with the Doctor’s most celebrated foe, some great character development for Amy and Rory and effects work which continues the bridge the lessening gap between big screen spectacle and what TV can afford to show us.
Some minor spoilers lurk in the image gallery which adjoins Den of Geek’s story, just so that you are appropriately forewarned if spoilers are not your particular cup of Earl Grey (hot).
My, what a lot of Daleks you have there, Doctor.
Following hot on the heels of that crazily exciting BBC America trailer for the new season of “Who” (Dinosaurs! Chastising Mechs! DalekCon 2012!), comes this nifty wallpaper with Matt Smith cradling some ginger lass whilst an assortment of homicidal pepper mills look on askance.
At least, I guess that’s what happening. It’s Thursday – you shouldn’t expect any coherence out of me this late in the week.
Still no news on when the awesome will be descending on television channels in your corner of the globe to help you get your geek on – if the Great and Wise Moffat has any clue, I’m sure he’ll be letting us know.
