If there's one question (out of a bazillion questions) lingering in the minds of Doctor Who fans everywhere lately, it must be WHO in theTime Vortex is "Clara," the Doctor's (Matt Smith) brand new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Isn't it about time we learned something about her?
Great news, fellow Whovians! Looks like another classic Doctor Who monster is set to make its very, very long-awaited return to the beloved sci-fi series next year. Can you guess which old-time monster the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his brand new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) will be facing off against?
For most actors, the fear of being typecast in a certain role is very real. After inhabiting a popular and beloved character for a number of years, some people will always see said actor as that particular character and very little else. But it appears that the pesky typecast curse has eluded David Tennant, one of the most popular Who Doctors of all time.
The BBC has released the very first official image of Matt Smith's Doctor — who is sporting a brand new Time Lord-y outfit no less — standing alongside his new companion Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Yup, it needs to be said: bow-ties are still cool.
Next year will be Doctor Who's 50th anniversary and current Doctor Matt Smith's already stated that he wants as many previous Doctors in the special as they can possibly get. More than a few have already agreed ... but the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker wants something special first.
Before Christopher Eccleston signed on to become the Ninth Doctor as Doctor Who was getting ready to make its big TV comeback in 2005, a few other name British actors had been touted as becoming the next Time Lord. Amongst them is a very well known British thespian who ultimately (and obviously) said NO to the role.
When it was announced that the latest season of the BBC's Doctor Who would be split up into two mini-seasons, the news got some fans worrying that it could be the first step toward phasing the series out. Well, Who showrunner Steven Moffat has now officially responded to the rumors. What'd he have to say?
After all the mystery surrounding the new Doctor Who companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, we now have our first look at the actress filming her first episode on location and (hooray!) we also finally learn the name of her character.
Much has already been said about Christopher Eccleston leaving behind his role as the Ninth Doctor on Who. The actor's puzzling departure from the beloved BBC sci-fi series after just one season had been less than ... shall we say, friendly? But, whatever, because the actor claims that on that particular subject, his conscience is clear.
Are you, like us, feeling Doctor Who deprived? We've got the solution: How about a brand new Doctor Who mini-episode starring Matt Smith? Well, we've got it right here, right now, and it's wonderfully awesome!
