Tom Macrae Interview: Episode Ten, the Crash of the Elysium and the Scariness of Doctor Who

Hello. Tom Macrae, the writer of Episode Ten, was recently interviewed by the Telegraph. In it, he talks about the episode he's writing for Series Six and the upcoming stage show, the Crash of the Elysium. You can read the whole interview here and thanks to The Whoniverse Blog for the heads up. Here it is:

When asked about how he got into writing Doctor Who:
I’ve been associated with the show since Christopher Eccleston started doing it. I got that because Russell T Davies had mentored me when I was first starting out in an unofficial way. He was hugely influential on me, and used to script-edit my stuff. I’m not trained at all - I have no qualifications in writing.
When Doctor Who came back I was thrilled but I never thought he’d ask me to do it. When he did, I was completely blown away. I went from writing characters of roughly the same age as me to doing the Cybermen. It was incredible and the biggest learning curve you could ever imagine.
When asked about writing an episode for Series Six:
I’ve written episode 10 which I think is my most accomplished piece of plotting ever. There’s a break in the series, so it will be coming out later. What’s interesting is that the requirements of the script meant that for various reasons nothing has gone out about it at all. We didn’t do much location filming, and the way the guest characters work is unusual, so no one knows anything about my episode.
There’s speculation about it which is wrong - some bright spark has put the title of the episode on IMDB as The Green Anchor - it has never been called that! I’m amazed we’ve kept it this secret because there’s a really big surprise in it. All I will say is that it’s an unusual episode and it’s really great.
When asked about the series being too scary:
I don’t think it’s scarier than it’s ever been. I think it has always been scary. It’s in HD now. Maybe that makes a difference. Maybe you’re able to show things you couldn’t before. But the scariest things were always shadows, taps on the window - the show has always done that.
I know when I was a kid - and Sylvester McCoy was my Doctor - it scared me. I look back on it now and it’s laughable - it’s hard if you ask an adult what they think, they’ll always have a view that isn’t the kids’ view. Matt Smith is incredibly funny as the Doctor - there are lots of daffy things going on. I don’t think it changes as much as people think it does.
When asked about the Crash of the Elysium:
In the tradition of the best Doctor Who the premise of what needs to happen is clearly outlined in the first couple of scenes, where it’s established what’s going on and what the kids have to do. They then go on a mission that requires them to head into this labyrinth of wonder we’ve created.
It’s not like The Crystal Maze - if they want to interrogate the adults they meet we have, over months of careful planning, created a watertight story about what’s going on. But the instruction to the actors is - here’s the information, if the kids ask you questions you’ve got everything you need. If all they want to do is press the buttons let them do that!
Finally, when asked about the age limit for the show:
I’ve read huge outrage online about people not being able to see it because they’re too old. What I like about this is that where there’s an age limit usually it’s about excluding younger kids. What we’ve done is said: if you’re too old to believe in Father Christmas, you’re too old for this show - not because it’s simplistic but because you’ll spoil it for the kids.
If we say that we’ve sent you back in time, and there’s a dinosaur round the corner, when you’re 14, you can play along with that - but you know it isn’t really happening. If you’re six, as far as you’re concerned that dinosaur is real. There could be a version for teenagers - but if we did that, we’d have to make it scarier and teens are very quick to be too cool for stuff.
With thanks to the Whoniverse Blog and the Telegraph for notifying me and for the interview.

Coming Soon - Who Reviews On YouTube!

Hello. A new video for TimeLordElevenVideos has been posted and it's about a new update to the Who Reviews which are exclusive to Time Lord Eleven (sorry I haven't posted many recently, I have to catch up with the series and the books as well). All the information you need can be found in the video below:


HELLO! This is the 100TH POST! Wow! To think only a month ago I was announcing the 'Doctor Save Our Souls!' competition. That was of course, for the first ever post. Ninety-nine posts later, and another competition is opening. This competition is called:

What Happened Next...

The competition involves a character that has previously starred in the show. It must show the character having another adventure which continues on from when they were last seen. It could be a second after the Doctor leaves, a month, a year, maybe even a few years. It must involve a different alien to the one seen in the episode. The story can be as long as you want it to be but it must be in story form, no scripts or poems or any other format. Some examples of the characters could be:
  • Craig Owens
  • Captain Avery
  • Canton Everett Delaware the Third
  • Winston Churchill
  • Vincent Van Gogh
  • Liz 10
Also, the Doctor cannot star in the story. He can be mentioned but that's all. The winning entry will be posted here. Good luck! The closing date is the 3rd July 2011.

New Doctor Who Books Released

Hello. Another three Doctor Who books have been published and are looking great. The titles are:


Written by: George Mann

Written by: Naomi A. Alderman

Who Reviews of these books as well as The Way Through the Woods, Dead of Winter and Hunter's Moon will be coming soon.

Doctor Who Series Seven Update

Hello. Doctor Who Series Seven is supposed to broadcast in 2011... but will it? Danny Cohen, the BBC1 Controller, announced the news to the audience at the 2011 Church and Media Conference. One of the attendees at the conference tweeted:
"Danny Cohen says there won't be a full series of Doctor Who in 2012, but a special run for the anniversary in 2013."
Then, later that day, Lizo Mzimba, a news reporter, tweeted:
"Bit of confusion, to summarise: no FULL 13 episode series of Dr Who in 2012. So some episodes will still go out in 2012. Remainder in 2013."
But before you make any assumptions, this does not clear up everything. Some questions still need to be answered: with some of the episodes in 2012 and some in 2013, will the Christmas Special be shown in the middle of the series? And will Episode Specials (like the ones in 2009) be broadcast up until Series Seven starts?

Also, Steven Moffat tweeted this about the subject of Series Seven:
"Misquotes and misunderstandings. But I'm not being bounced into announcing the cool stuff until we're ready. Hush, and patience."
Following on from this, Doctor Who Magazine said this about the matter:
"Doctor Who's future is safe and secure. And there is 'cool stuff' on the way, according to Steven Moffat. We can definitely vouch for that."
Finally, Sam Hodges from the BBC tweeted:
"Situation stays the same - 14 episodes commisioned, starting in 2012. How they will play out will be revealed at a later date."
