A Glimpse at the new Doctor Who

Courtesy of, we have some pictures taken at the set of the new series of Doctor Who, starring Matt Smith.

Not completely sure what his companion is wearing, but she's pretty. As for Smith, well we already knew he was handsome. But can he pull of the skinny bow tie? Is it a age/youth kind of merge attempt, him being the youngest actor to play the Doctor, while the Doctor is several hundred (?) years old by now?

Also taken on this day of filming were pictures that confirm Alex Kingston's return as River Song.

I wasn't a big fan of the Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead 2-parter last series, in fact I found it downright lame, but the only interesting part was her character (name aside.) We know she was the Doctor's lover, possibly love of his lives, we know how her own life ends, and we know when she met David Tennant's Doctor she remarked on how young he was.

Therefore Matt Smith's Doc can't be the one she had her long love affair with, since he's even younger. Still, all this time traveling, and knowing when people you love are going to die is certainly rich, plot wise. I wonder if it has some connection to Gillian Anderson starring as Rani.

In related Doctor Who news, and in a glorious geekdom overlap, at San Diego Comic Con Russel T. Davies and David Tennant had a panel. In it Tennant claims " I love Firefly, I love Serenity. They're excellent." followed by a particularly effeminate supportive clap by Davies. He goes on to speculate on the origin of his own Doctor's long brown coat.

Go here for the video.


  1. Doctor Who has been one of the most successful TV series in all times, so, I doesn't matter if the cast change, because I'm sure the substitutes are gonna be a wonderful job too.

  2. I either love this TV series, specially because the ideology is completely different, it's more entertained than the other series.
