The Bells of Saint John: A Prequel +TV Trailer

The Bells of Saint John: A Prequel

From The Official Site

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Easter Saturday at 6.15pm with The Bells of Saint John, but you can watch a prequel to the new episode this Saturday.

The brand new prequel is written by Steven Moffat and features the Doctor, played, of course, by Matt Smith. We join the Time Lord on Earth where he’s taking a break from his quest to find Clara.

    I would say that from the eleventh hour to the Angles take manhatten that the doctor did not really mix with me. But seeing him in a new suit I am starting to like him as much as tennant.

    Saw it. Not much time given for Doctor Who, the best thing the BBC ever produced in that old building.

    Felt abit annoyed seeing Micheal Grade on the One Show, seeing as his hated by every Doctor Who fan who knows of his hatred for Doctor Who back in the good old days, and as the man who cancelled it in 1989 if I know my Doctor Who history correctly.

    I hope he stays. I liked him almost immediately in The End of Time Part 2, and after The Big Bang, he had become my favorite incarnation of the Doctor.

    i hope he leaves. i liked his doctor in ‘the eleventh hour’, and then when ‘the beast below’ was broadcast – i hated him! i’ve disliked the 11th Doctor ever since. he’s too child like.

    booboo, the sun newspaper has claimed that Matt Smith is leaving in this years Christmas special! is it just a publicity stunt?

    He was in the cast list on the BBC site but has since been removed, either a spoiler or a mistake (or flashback)

    Problem yet again is that spoiler sites pick up on it and now its fact


    March 22nd, 2013 - 3:29pm

    Er . . . . . . his dead dude, and don’t forget his from like over 100 years ago from the Victorian era, so his long gone.


    March 22nd, 2013 - 3:28pm

    Well don’t worry, I’m not believing a word of it until some reliable source, like the official BBC Doctor Who website for example, says so.

    After all, the Sun don’t always get their facts straight.

    Take 2008 for example, they said that in series 4, Harriot Jones would turn out to be a Dalek Agent who get’s rewarded for her loyalty to the Daleks by being mutated into one of them. Not true as it turned out, so what muppet at Sun HQ got that idea in their thick skull is probably still kicking themselves for being wrong.

    Pointless is a quiz show, kind of a backwards family fortunes. Instead of the top answer, you look for one no one thought of. There’s a who one on Saturday with Sylvester McCoy, Frazer Hines and others.

    Also on the red button, but clashes at some point with the Doctor Who Pointless. Missing both as working. Will the Pointless be on iplayer?
