How come we don’t get anything cool like this in the United States? BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand and Vivid Sydney teamed up to create a very cool “light celebration” for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. A cool music video accompanied by the music of composer, Murray Gold was projected in Australia’s Customs House Sydney. This is brilliant and also serves as a cool tribute to the Matt Smith AKA Eleventh Doctor who will be finishing his run as The Doctor later this year.
Whoa, whoa, WHOA! Tabloid newspaper, The Daily Mail has posted that the current and Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith has called is quits on Doctor Who. Of course, it’s only a tabloid so you shouldn’t pay too much attention to it, but now, The Telegraph is reporting that Matt Smith is indeed quitting the gig that put him on the map after shooting the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special and 2013 Christmas special.
“Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show.
“I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience.
“Many of them have become good friends and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.”
“The fans of Doctor Who around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I’ve never seen before, your dedication is truly remarkable.
“Thank you so very much for supporting my incarnation of the Time Lord, number Eleven, who I might add is not done yet, I’m back for the 50th anniversary and the Christmas special.”
Even though this was bound to happen, this is still sad news considering Matt Smith is loved by many new and old Whovians. It will now be interesting to see who will be taking over as the Twelveth Doctor.
The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) takes a moment to talk a little about the onscreen chemistry between the two Doctors in the 50th anniversary Doctor Who special. It’s pretty obvious that Smith and Tennant definitely has some amazing chemistry together and I can’t wait to see them in the special!
Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special drops on November 23, 2013!
December is one of the most exciting times of the year. Not because of Christmas and presents, but because of the annual Doctor Who Christmas special! This year, The Doctor (Matt Smith) is joined Madame Vastra, her maid companion Jenny, and the infamous Sontaran commander, Strax in “The Snowmen“. Also, it will be the second appearance of The Doctor’s companion-to-be, Clara Oswin, played by the beautiful Jenna-Louise Coleman. Two sneak peeks have been released starting with the trailer for the special and a mini-sode, titled “The Great Detective” which serves as a prequel leading up to the special. From the looks of it, The Doctor is still suffering from losing Rory and Amy in “The Angels Take Manhattan” and seems to have lost the drive to help people in need. As usual, the Christmas special will serve as a great lead-in to the second half of the season and I can’t wait!
“The Snowmen” premieres on Christmas Day (December 25, 2012). Hit the jump and check out the trailer and mini-sode!
“TIME VORTEX IS HERE! Whoaaaaaa! The TARDIS is spinning!”
This is going to be a big weekend. Especially for Whovians because the seventh season of Doctor Who premieres this weekend! It’s been a while since we last saw a performance video by Karen and the Babes. This time, during a visit to Buzzfeed, Karen and the Babes (minus one “Babe”) decided to freestyle the theme song to Doctor Who. It’s is pretty obvious that the chemistry between Karen Gillan (@karengillan2) and Matt Smith is strong even off screen. Considering this will be the last season for the Ponds, it will be devastating for fans of Karen Gillan (like myself) that our special time with Amy Pond and The Doctor is coming to an end. Until Amy says farewell to her time traveling friend, we will be tuning in every week. Damn. My heart is going to break when Karen says goodbye. Sigh…
The seventh season of Doctor Who premieres on September 1st, 2012!
We have been waiting for this a long time. The trailer for the seventh season of Doctor Who just dropped and I have to say that it looks like this season is going to be wild! The Doctor is even more intense this season and Amy looks to be coming into her own. Rory is pretty much the same. This season is going to be a tear jerker for me as this is the end for the Ponds and we say goodbye to Amy and Rory. Looks like Steven Moffat is going to send the Ponds on their way with a huge bang. God, I’m going to miss Karen Gillan’s smile. I do have a question. Any poop in their pants a little when they saw the little Weeping Angel? Good times.
Season seven of Doctor Who (based on IMDB) is set to premiere August 25th 2012.

It’s on bro. It’s on like River Song. BBC just released a small teaser for the seventh season of Doctor Who featuring Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, and the other dude as Rory Williams. From the looks of it, the Doctor will be making his way all over Earth. I’m lookin’ forward to it and I reckon you are too. BTW: I know Rory is played by Arthur Darvill.
