The new season of Doctor Who has arrived, and the Doctor, Rory, River Song, and Amy Pond have found themselves in the Utah desert. The episode aired in the U.K. and in the United States at the same time, which means we don’t have to wait two weeks to talk about what was seen, what wasn’t seen, and what clues were scattered throughout.
A strange summons reunites the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River Song in the middle of the Utah desert and unveils a terrible secret the Doctor’s friends must never reveal to him.
Did you see it? We want to know what you thought of The Impossible Astronaut. Was it worth your time? Did it rock your socks to see The Doctor and company in the Southwest, or did it seem like a grab to get more ‘mericans in on the action? And more importantly, are you coming back next week for more Who?
Who else is super excited for Saturday evening, when the brand new season of Doctor Who arrives? Last season those of us in the States got to see the show a week after being aired in the U.K. but this season, we’re getting the same day release with The Impossible Astronaut.
Don’t forget, The Doctor comes to America this season, and while the thoughts of see Matt Smith in a cowboy hat might trill thrill many, this trailer has many other thrilling moments (look really really close – this is an HD trailer after all) hidden throughout.
IDW Publishing and BBC Worldwide America have today announced the global digital launch of IDW’s critically acclaimed DOCTOR WHO comic book series. Doctor Who fans worldwide can now follow the Doctor’s comic book adventures on their Apple iPads and iPhones, and Sony PSPs, along with IDW Publishing’s entire catalog of DOCTOR WHO comics, which is now out in digital form.
We already know the good Doctor is coming to America, but now we know the date. The BBC has announced April 23, 2011 is the day we’ll see the new series kick off on both BBC America, and the mother ship station over in the United Kingdom.
Parodies of the CSI series abound across the Intardwebz. Heck, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t put on a pair of sunglasses and scream “YEAAAAAAAAHHHHH!” as I walk out the door headed to who knows what kind of mischief.
Making the rounds this week is the Doctor Who take on the CBS franchise.
If you are a regular reader of Marvel Comics, you’ve probably seen Jacopo Camagni’s work in the pages of Black Widow and the Marvel Girls, and World War Hulks: Captain America Vs. Wolverine #1. Jacopo is also a big Doctor Who fan, contributing today’s Art Appreciation Moment to the Doctor Who Reprint Society.
For a while now, BBC and BBC America have been working to get Doctor Who to line up on the two networks. By the end of last season those of us in America were only a week or two behind the UK air date. Perhaps it was the fact that so many of us were getting our Doctor Who fix before BBC America broadcast the show, or perhaps somebody is getting in the holiday spirit, but this year we’re getting The Doctor Who Christmas Special on Christmas Day.
Doctor Who comes to BBC AMERICA this Christmas Day at 9 pm EST with a festive Dickens-inspired adventure, “A Christmas Carol.” Take a sneak peek at the first official trailer.
I love it when fans get their creative juices flowing over their favorite properties. Karma Orange has a set of Doctor Who posters created with minimal information in them. I personally like the Cybermen poster most of all.
Now if only there were some way for advertising agencies to get in contact with these creators and pay them for their work, as opposed to out and out stealing their ideas and claiming them as their own. There have been a few times when a viral/fan project turned into something profitable for all parties, but those seem to be few and far between.
