Doctor Who Pond Life Part One Now live

Doctor Who Pond LifePart One Now live

The first episode of Pond Life is available now official BBC website at noon.

From the official site…

Whilst the Ponds enjoy life at home, the Doctor has been having some unplanned adventures… Available from Monday, 27 August at noon.

Matt Smith returns as the Doctor and called Asylum of the Daleks ‘a cracker’, adding, ‘Steven [Moffat] has written an absolute belter and we have made the Daleks scary again’. But before that, we have Pond Life to look forward to!

Featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, this five-part mini-adventure premieres on this site at noon on Monday with parts 2-5 stripped daily across the week. Written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Saul Metzstein, the omnibus version of Pond Life will be shown on the BBC’s Red Button on Saturday, 1st September.

Chris Chibnall commented, ‘Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch-up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series. It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives. Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it’s fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring.’

Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, said ‘Chris has written a beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny piece about the adventures the Ponds have been having with the Doctor since we last saw them on-screen. It’s not long till the series itself will be back with a vengeance – but in the meantime, Pond Life is a truly heart-warming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor.’

We’ll be bringing you more about the new series and Pond Life soon!

    Hmm…….. Does anyone else notice that Chris Chinball is writing these? Just because he’s writing episode 4 which is meant to be an insight into the Pond’s life as well…..

    Sounds like a spin-off to me, looking at the lives of the Doctor’s companions when his not around, much like Jack’s life in Torchwood and Sarah’s life in K9 and Company and the Sarah Jane Adventures.
