The End of Time Trailer

July 26, 2009

In 1990s-era movie piracy goodness quality (and as mentioned on Radio Free Skaro #151), we have an early bootleg of the trailer for The End of Time presented at today’s San Diego Comic Con panel. Hoo-ray!


Radio Free Skaro #151 – Killing Time Before The Waters of Mars

July 26, 2009
rfs151

In what has to be the most overwhelming of all weeks for Doctor Who in all recorded history, the RFS crew slogged mightily through tales of Comic Con, rumours confirmed, others dashed, and in the midst of our recording the release of a new trailer for “The Waters of Mars.” And that was BEFORE we got around commentating on “Planet of the Dead”, making this if not the longest Radio Free Skaro ever than certainly the densest, and not just because of PotD’s plodding, pedestrian poltroonery.

New Doctor Who DVDs for North America in November

July 22, 2009

Steve Manfred (of the excellent Doctor Who DVD FAQ site) is reporting that both The War Games and the Black Guardian Trilogy (composed of Mawdryn Undead, Terminus, and Enlightenment) will be coming to the North American (Region 1) DVD market on Tuesday, November 3. No prices have been announced, nor covers unveiled, for either set, but expect each DVD set to be within the $30-$40 range, price wise, and expect both covers to be of questionable artistic taste. (UPDATE – the covers have now been released, and they actually don’t look that bad.)

The War Games is a 3-disc set that was released in the UK (Region 2) on July 6 to great acclaim. The Black Guardian Trilogy is a 4-disc set which not only includes the three stories from Season 20 that make up the trilogy, but a new, widescreen edit of Enlightenment with enhanced visual effects. This set will be released in the UK in August.

Party like it’s 1963

July 20, 2009

Among the other announcements today, it has also been revealed the TARDIS will be getting a rather retro feel. As has previously been discussed on Radio Free Skaro, the press have leaked rumours that the TARDIS would have a white, retro feel inside but little or nothing had previously been mentioned about the exterior. Set reports from today’s filming quite clearly show changes to the exterior of our beloved blue box, such as the return of the St. John’s Ambulance logo that adorned the door in William Hartnell’s era.

Pond (insert joke here)

July 20, 2009

In addition to wee l’il Matty’s costume being revealed today, we’ve also learned Karen Gillan’s character’s name shall be Amy… POND?! As discussed on Radio Free Skaro #150 yesterday, The Mirror seems to have accurately reported the Amy part but frankly the Pond is a bit out of left field to most people so far. Let the jokes like “pond scum” begin!

Professor Doctor

July 20, 2009

The BBC has this morning revealed the costume for Matt Smith’s Doctor, a rather professorial affair complete with tweed, a bow tie… and boots. Needless to say, the most important characteristic of Smith’s – or any – Doctor, the hair, shall seemingly be left alone to maintain the sentience we’ve all come to expect from our cute widdwe 12-year old Time Lord.

Karen Gillan and Matt Smith prepare to do some filming on the new series of Doctor Who.
