The End of the Holiday

Hello. My holiday to Portugal is over at last! It was very difficult to not blog over the past week but at least I'm back... for now. Anyway, here is the news from the past week that I missed to blog:

>  The fifth Adventure Game will be called The Gunpowder Plot

>  The episode written by Tom MacRae (Episode Ten) is called The Girl Who Waited

>  The second episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Rendition, was broadcast

>  The broadcast date of Series Six Part Two has been announced for the USA (with the UK date being very soon after, hopefully) and it is the 27th August at 9pm

>  The main villain for Let's Kill Hitler (who is not actually Hitler) is called the Tessalecta (if that's how it's spelt)

>  Doctor Who went to Comic Con and a trailer was released with new, epic clips

>  Karen Gillan has confirmed that Amy Pond will return for Series Seven, but Arthur Darvill has not confirmed that Rory will too

>  Steven Moffat considered making a Madame Vestra/Jenny spin-off

Also, tonight at 9pm is the broadcast for the third episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Dead of Night. You can expect a whole load of Who Reviews including the reviews for The New World, Rendition and Dead of Night.

Finally, there are two more competitions opening up and they both have prizes!

The first is a Torchwood competition:

Torchwood: Miracle Day is the new series of Torchwood which involves the whole world becoming immortal. To celebrate the new series, this competition is about the series. All you have to do is answer three simple questions, then email me the answers at timelordeleven@gmail.com with your address so I can send you the prize if you have won. All addresses will be kept confidential and can you please include your name and (if you have one) a Google or Disqus username so I know who you are online. Once you have emailed me your entries, I will email you acknowleging your entry. The questions are below:

1. What is Torchwood an anagram of?

2. What is the name of the twelve year old girl who Oswald Danes murdered?

3. What type of poison was Jack poisoned with in Rendition?

As I said previously, email me the answers, your real name, your username and your address. The closing date is the 4th September 2011. The prize is the Torchwood book, Border Princes in mint condition. It is written byDan Abnett and you can read the blurb below:

The End of the World began on a Thursday night in October just after eight in the evening...
The Amok is driving people out of their minds, turning them into zombies and causing riots in the streets. A solitary diner leaves a Cardiff restaurant, his mission to protect the Principal leading him to a secret base beneath a water tower. Everyone has a headache; there's something in Davey Morgan's shed; and the church of St-Mary-in-the-Dust, demolished in 1840, has reappeared - though it's not due until 2011. Torchwood seem to be out of their depth. What will all this mean for the romance between Torchwood's  newest members?
Captain Jack Harkness has something more to worry about: an alarm, an early warning, given to mankind and held - inert - by Torchwood for 108 years. And now it's flashing. Something is coming. Or something is already here.

The next competition is a Doctor Who competition:

In the middle of the three month gap of Doctor Who Series Six, I have bought and read many of the Doctor Who books including Apollo 23, Paradox Lost and Dead of Winter. This competition involves you, the readers, creating your own monster, alien or villain of any kind. You must describe, in exact detail, your alien: what it looks like, what specialities it has, why it would want to defeat the Doctor and any weaknesses it has. You may include a picture of your monster to complete the creation. As in the Torchwood competition, please email me your entries at timelordeleven@gmail.com with your description, your address, your name and your username. The prize is two Doctor Who books, The Brilliant Book 2011 and Apollo 23, the first Doctor Who book starring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond. This competition also ends on the 4th September 2011. Good luck!

Sorry folks, the Brilliant Book is off of the prize list for various reasons too complicated to describe! So now it's just Apollo 23, the first book of Doctor Who for Matt Smith and Amelia Jessica Pond.

Torchwood Miracle Day: Rendition Short Trailer

Hello. The BBC are showing short trailers for the next episode of Torchwood, Rendition. Some of the scenes we've seen before but some are completely new. You can watch it below:

Also, on a unrelated note, I will be in Portugal for the next week so there won't be any more news until then. Goodbye for now!

Preview of Series Six Part Two

Hello. The BBC has released yet another "Original British Drama" trailer and in it, with many other clips, are some clips for the second half of Doctor Who Series Six. You can watch the clip below:

As you can see, two new clips have been added! The first is Amy battling what is thought to be a Handbot from Episode Ten with a samurai sword and a staff. Madame Vestra anyone? Also, if you look closely, you can see that a man runs behind her. Who is it? Is it Rory? The Doctor? A random man? Who knows, only time will tell.
The second clip is of Craig Owens (James Corden) and the Doctor getting very close. Craig thinks the Doctor is going to kiss him while the Doctor fiddles with the sonic screwdriver. But where are they? It looks like some sort of ship... what about a Cybership? Filming pictures have shown that Cybermats are part of the episode and the Cybermen play a part in the episode too. And what is the Doctor doing? You can post your theories and ideas in the comment box below.

Upcoming Who Reviews

Hello again. As you know, Who Reviews are exclusive to Time Lord Eleven and there have only been two since they began. I'm currently working on the third review but there are a load of other ones still to come. Below is a list of the Who Reviews in the order in which I will film them in:
  • Who Review 003 - The Curse of the Black Spot
  • Who Review 004 - The New World
  • Who Review 005 - The Doctor's Wife
  • Who Review 006 - The Rebel Flesh
  • Who Review 007 - Rendition

  • Who Review 013 - Apollo 23
Remember, these may vary as the Who Reviews for the Adventure Games will be slotted in there as well. As you can see, I have a lot of work to do and I'm going on holiday on Thursday so some of the reviews will be a long time away.

Feature: Will Doctor Who Become American?

Hello. On many Doctor Who websites, people have been debating whether or not Doctor Who is becoming too American. The debate has been going on since we first heard about filming in America last year and it has grown over the past few months. To clear things up, this article is to present to you why it is NOT becoming too American and in some cases, why it is.

To start off, a recent interview with Russell T Davies shows his side of the debate:
"No one at BBC Worldwide is looking at an American version of Doctor Who. I know everyone thinks we have secret plans. But we do have plans for new dramas, and non-science fiction. It's about time I got back to that material, 'cause I have a lot to say in that world. So our ambitions are endless - but not for that particular one!"
On the other hand, Torchwood was not expected to become an American TV show but look at it now. It's a co-production with the BBC and many of its stars are American. Also, the majority of the series will be set and filmed in America too. The difference is quite dramatic compared to the other series, but if you think about it, does it have to be a bad thing?
Doctor Who is a British show and in my opinion it always will be, even if it moves to the States, but what would happen if it did move over to the USA? Would it be a bad thing? If anything, the action scenes would be more exciting, the settings would be more effective and the special effects could be even greater than anything we have seen before. Think about the first episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, The New World. It had a completely different feel to it but this did not take away the fact that the show is outstanding and a brilliant drama. If anything, it added to it.

The first two episodes of Doctor Who Series Six was, of course, The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. If you remember, in the first ever Who Review, I commented on the amazing settings and the beautiful scenery. These features were one of the main factors of the episodes and made the episode what it was. Would it be bad if every episode was full of these landscape shots?
Also, the viewing figures for Series Six so far have been as good as any other (these final viewing figures are compared to the final viewing figures of Series Five):

THE IMPOSSIBLE ASTRONAUT - 8.9 million viewers
DAY OF THE MOON - 7.3 million viewers
THE CURSE OF THE BLACK SPOT - 7.85 million viewers
THE DOCTOR'S WIFE - 7.97 million viewers
THE REBEL FLESH - 7.35 million viewers
THE ALMOST PEOPLE - 6.72 million viewers
A GOOD MAN GOES TO WAR - 7.57 million viewers

These figures are very similar to the viewing figures of previous series and this proves that Doctor Who is not in danger of having to move to America due to lack of views.
We know that, at least until the 50th Anniversary, Doctor Who will still be in th UK, with Matt Smith and Steven Moffat. The Ponds are not confirmed to appear in the seventh series, let alone the 50th Anniversary in 2013.
In conclusion, there is no certain proof that Doctor Who will become American in the near future, but it depends on your side of the debate.

The Adventure Games Series Two News

Hello. The next series of the popular Adventure Games, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, were announced in December last year. Since then, we have had no news on them, due to the business of series Six, but at last we have some news. Three Twitter updates were the first pieces of news we received on them:
Just back from day in studio with Matt Smith recording the next Doctor Who Adventure Game. His lines include words 'Imperial' & 'duck'.
Matt's performance is alive with energy. Hook him up to national grid and he could power the UK for a fortnight. Will be best Ad Game yet.
A report on today's Doctor Who Adventure Game recording (plus some v special exclusives!) will materialise next week on [the official Doctor Who website].
Then, the BBC posted an article on Matt recording the lines for the fifth Game in the complete series. You can find it here, but the main elements of the article are below:
 >  The Adventure Game will be the biggest and most ambitious yet

>  The costumes and sets are 'beautiful' according to the Doctor himself

>  Matt Smith thinks one of the lines is: "Brilliant!" And that you could only get a line like that in Doctor Who

>  The trailers are unique and try to do something that has never been done in the history of Doctor Who

>  Toby Robinson, the recording engineer thinks the trailers are 'magical'

>  Matt says: "If you think [AGMGTW] was good, just wait for Episode 8... you're in for a treat!"

>  The Adventure Game is written by Phil Ford (the writer of City of the Daleks, Blood of the Cybermen and Shadows of the Vashta Nerada)

As mentioned earlier, the Game should be coming out very soon. All trailers, clips and interviews will be posted here. Plus, as an extra bonus, you can expect five Who Reviews:
  • Who Review - City of the Daleks
  • Who Review - Blood of the Cybermen
  • Who Review - TARDIS
  • Who Review - Shadows of the Vashta Nerada
  • Who Review - (Fifth Adventure Game)
Also, even though they weren't there, we are supposing that Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will be in it (hopefully) but will be recording on another day.

Hello! (Again)

Hello! Quick post, sorry for the lack of posts over the last few weeks, I got into the habit of forgetting to post news! I'm back into the swing of things now, but I'm not going to post news that I've missed. Links to all of the websites that have posted this news are on the side of the page and below:

Doctor Who TV

Life, Doctor Who and Combom

Time Dragon in the Vortex


The Doctor in the TARDIS

Read these websites, they're brilliant!

Anyway, no one entered the What Happened Next competition, so that'll be closing without any entries. Torchwood: Miracle Day has already aired in America and it will be airing soon in Britain. On Doctor Who TV, guest writer Clint Hassell has been writing many articles on the broadcast of the episode. You can get to them below:

Torchwood Miracle Day: The New World Synopsis

Hello. The synopsis for the first episode of Miracle Day has been released by the BBC. You can read it below:
One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep ageing – they get hurt and sick, but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight.
With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month’s time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as CIA agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking: “What is Torchwood?”, he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human … for ever.
In the launch episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Agent Rex Matheson is impaled in a car crash and miraculously survives, while his analyst, Esther Drummond, sets out to discover what Torchwood is.
Far away, in Wales, Gwen Cooper lives in hiding with her husband Rhys and daughter Anwen – she’s the last surviving Torchwood member and is determined to stay hidden.
In Kentucky, convicted murderer Oswald Danes survives his own execution. And when Esther meets the mysterious Captain Jack Harkness, assassins are activated to kill them all…
The New World will broadcast on the 14th July at 9:00 pm. The series will continue for 10 weeks, each episode on a Thursday.
