From The Radio Times…

Matt Smith is the 27-year-old actor to scoop the title role in the new series of Doctor Who. A graduate of the University of East Anglia, where he studied drama and creative writing, Smith has his own way of accessing this enigmatic character. “I was thinking, ‘Who in the world has a brain and a silliness which is close to the Doctor?’ and then I saw that photograph of Albert Einstein poking his tongue out and it just clicked. I found this book of quotes by Einstein – which I recommend as a life choice, he was such an insightful man – and I started writing short stories about Einstein and the Doctor, where the Doctor was getting irritated with the great man’s buffoonery. He’d be saying, ‘Come on, Albert, keep up!’ and I think that, more than anything, was my way in to the part.”

Karen Gillan is the girl who grabbed the role every actress would die for: the companion to the eleventh Doctor. Fans camped outside the Doctor Who set are a reminder of the show’s unique place in British culture. “I was never really into science fiction when I was growing up,” she says, “though my mum was a big Doctor Who fan. Now I’ve turned into a real sci-fi geek. Once you get sucked into that world, it has its own logic and laws, which is why I think people are so passionate about it.”

TV & Satellite Week and Total TV guide covers, both have extensive articles on the new series


Extract From TV & Satellite Week…

TV & Satellite Week was given a behind-the-scenes tour of the new, darker blue Tardis, I and it certainly won’t disappoint. Almost I three times bigger than the last police box,it is split-level with several staircases leading to mysterious rooms, while the central console ‘ contains gadgets galore, from a gramophone speaker to a typewriter. The Tardis rebuilds itself in the first episode because it was damaged when David Tennant regenerated,’ explains Steven Moffat.’

Extract From Total TV guide…

New Doctor, new series – new man in charge. Freshly minted head honcho Steven Moffat reveals his take on Who…

“I see Doctor Who as a fairy tale. And by a fairy tale, I don’t mean something sweet and nice and kind and funny. I mean something scary
and terrifying. Fairy tales are the means by which we tell our children the world is dangerous. And, yes, I know Matt Smith looks like he’s the youngest Doctor ever, but in the show it’s not an issue. It really isn’t. He’s an imperious, up-himself Time Lord. When you see him bossing Winston Churchill about in an upcoming episode, he seems like Churchill’s dad!”

    I have heard Library and swimming pool mentioned but that could be from previous ones, wouldn’t it be great if there was a second console like the Tom baker one we know nothing about.

    New tardis looks fantastic and i am a bit suprised the BBC has decided to release the pictures of what is coming before the show airs? didn’t they get photos of the interior pulled off the internet some months ago to keep it secret?

    The new interior looks brilliant. Nice and shiny, but still with that odd thrown-together took they’ve had since the series started up again.
