The day of the doctor..the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who was one for the ages. Ever since Doctor Who came back on air 7 years ago we have all wondered about the true fate of Gallifrey…and sure we had that episode where Timothy Dalton comes in as the President of Gallifrey which is time locked..but lets forget that for a moment.
This new moment Gallifrey Lives.
And for the first time in more than 25 years we have seen the great Tom Baker return in a Doctor Who episode.
Epic.

Here at ShowMeSciFi.com, we’ve been Matt Smith fans from Day one and his first episode as a Doctor Who (Eleventh Hour)

He’s funnier than David Tennant.

He’s tough.

He’s cerebral.

He’s got real charisma.

oh and he’ll also be the Doctor deep into 2014 too.

Doctor Who Season 7: A Town Called Mercy REVIEW September 23, 2012

OK we’re a little behind on Doctor Who Season 7, but thanks to iTunes we’ve just caught up on a few episode. With episode 3 – A Town Called Mercy – we knew from the trailer that we’d see ‘The Gunslinger’ a futuristic cyborg killer. We knew it would be a Western Theme too.

All Good.

As always an awesome Doctor Who Matt Smith twist too – with the monster — not really being a monster.

the only thing we didn’t care for was the lack of screen time for the Ponds. Both Amy and Rory really got short changed..but we know that in coming episode this season..the Ponds will get more than their fair share.

Doctor Who has no shortage of enemies..bad guys like the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Master (remember him?)…

and no new Doctor – Matt Smith – will face an Arnie Schwartzenegger like Terminator, decked out in Westworld type western firefly garb…

sure looks like great fun…the episode airs this Sat on the BBC.

The first episode of Doctor Who season 7 Asylum of the Daleks
by all account is a massive win for the Doctor Who franchise.

According to Entertainment Weekly:

The Saturday telecast was seen by 1.6 million viewers, which is both a time period high and a series best for the show since it started airing on the network in 2009.

Always a good sign when a new season starts off well…

New trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who is now out. Looks like we’ve got some wild west action and a new bad guy/cyborg..

Though apparently there might be some Daleks too.

Doctor Who: Season Six, Part 1 is done (no we haven’t reviewed them all yet but don’t worry we will..)
The good ppl at the BBC are already teasing us with the second half of the Season 6 and as has been the case in the last few seasons, the end will (hopefully) tie right back to the first episode…you know..

THE ONE WHERE THE DOCTOR GET SHOT BY AN ASTRONAUT AND DIES.

yeaah that one..

Before he gets around that…looks like he’s got a few more monsters to deal with first.

The Doctor’s Wife wow the TARDIS is alive!
What an interesting twist.. We’ve never seen the tardis personified before have we?

Having the message cubes as a lure was also a neat trick…and you just gotta love the humor….
700 years and the Doctor has never read the front of his own box….pull, NOT push the door open!

But why call the episode the doctor’s wife? Isn’t dr song the doctor’s wife? Is she somehow also the soul of the tardis?

Doctor Who : The Curse of the Black Spot – Sirens are Emergency Medical Holograms… May 23, 2011

From the  ‘Ancient Mysteries Solved by SciFi‘ files:

The legend of the mermaid sirens that lured sailors to their doom is an ancient one. We’ve never seen it properly treated in a SciFi show…until now. The Curse of the Black Spot gave us a unique viewpoint on this ancient myth.

Transdimensional mirrors and emergency medical holograms…

Go figure.

Definitely an interesting idea…though there were a few minor holes in the story. For example, a simple cut meant that a person needed medical treatment? really? unless of course the system knew the cut would lead to tetanus or something…
And SUUUUUUUUUUUUREE a 16th century English pirate can pilot a starship yeah…

Beyond that..a really solid episode that made us think and that’s why we watch Doctor Who. It’s a show with great actors and fantastic plots that challenges our conventional ways of thinking with new ideas.

Doctor Who returns for Season 6 on April 23,

in both the U.S. and the UK.

But before that happens there is an online webisode prequel that the BBC is already out promoting.

The online prequel episode is a precursor to the two-parter that airs starting on April 23. No main TARDIS characters but a setup story with the guest characters.

Doctor Who – Xmas Carol – Forget about Rudolph, it’s time for a flying shark!! December 30, 2010

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol [HD] was easily the best Doctor Who Xmas episode in at least 20 years.

The ghost of xmas past/present/future idea was totally remade by having the good Doctor show the future ‘scrooge’ his past as his past was happening.

Astounding.

And how about that flying shark? Wow.

A little sad in the end, but that’s the added punch that makes the Matt Smith Doctor Who version that much better.

Craig Ferguson lost Doctor Who intro – AWESOME – It’s about the triumph of intellect over brute force December 3, 2010

We love Craig Ferguson.

And now that new footage that was ‘lost’ from the original broadcast last month of this doctor who show interview with Matt Smith has surfaced…we love Craig even more.

Apparently Ferguson’s producers told him 5 minutes before the show started that he didn’t have the legal rights to use the Doctor Who theme music – but luckily someone had a video recorder handy and recorded the ‘cold’ version before the actual broadcast.

In this little bit – Ferguson clearly explains why ‘geeks’ love the Doctor – because it’s about the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism.

Sit back and enjoy!

now here is what actually aired .. now it all makes sense!

Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series is now out on DVD – so Matt Smith is now making the talk show rounds.

Last night he showed up on Craig Ferguson (aka Mr. Wick from the Drew Carey show) The Late Late Show..

What a riot?

And Smith reveals something that we’ve never known about the Daleks before…

Meanwhile in the Tardis – Doctor Who does stuff November 9, 2010

The BBC has releases a set of really funny and interesting out-takes from Matt Smith’s first season as Doctor Who –with the lovely Amy Pond in tow of course.

An interesting discussion on why the Tardis is a police box..and does the Doctor have to change the light on the top? And does he feel stupid about traveling in a wooden box?

Then there is an un-released scene from the Vampire of Venice episode – with Amy hitting on the Doctor — funny stuff for sure, but we can see why it got cut from the episode that aired. Then again, Amy (as always) does make a good point about the simple fact that all of the Doctor’s companions have been women…

 

 

Doctor Who : Vincent and the Doctor paint an amazing scifi picture July 11, 2010

yeaah we know, we’re not as fast as those in the UK when it comes to watching Doctor Who — and sure we’re even behind BBC America too…We’re getting out Doctor Who fix by buying episodes from Amazon now and we’re up to — Vincent and the Doctor

What a great episode that works on so many different levels. Sure it’s always great to see the Doctor visit historical figures but the twist with the blind ‘monster alien’ was neat on so many levels.

The fact that Vincent van Gough could also detect Amy’s pain (at the loss of Rory even though she didn’t know it..) was also a neat twist. We didn’t see a crack in the wall in this episode (or did we?), but hey a fine entertaining episode…

and we don’t recall seeing that device (mirror and printer) that could identify objects, though it sure seemed like a throwback to something the Doctor might have used in the 1960’s…

Doctor Who – The Hungry Earth Eats Rorry – Long Live Homo Reptilius! July 4, 2010

Really? Rory is dead?

The hungry earth and cold blood episodes again challenged the normal scifi TV groove.

Homo Reptilius? really? a pre hom0-sapien sentient species? amazing…and what at neat treatment too.

what was shocking about this episode though of course was that Rory got killed – isn’t the Doctor supposed to save everyone? Since when do ppl die on Doctor Who?

Overall another fine episode, with a new look at Earth’s species and an interesting shift for Amy (with the loss of Rory) and of course the tear in the wall /space/time fabric.

What is that thing?

Doctor Who – Amy’s Choice was Really the Doctor’s Choice Wasn’t it? June 9, 2010

Amy’s Choice was yet another solid episode in an unbroken stream of brilliant episodes so far with Matt Smith as the new Doctor.

What’s real and what’s not?

Obviously the Tardis had to be real right? How could the future – with Amy preggers living in a quiet town – be real?

The bad guy had to be the Master right?

Man were we wrong – and what an interesting twist. Both scenarios were the dream!! We didn’t see that coming at all. Amy didn’t really make the choice, the psychic beads made the choice for them all.

No companion ever really ends up with the Doctor — that’s just not the way the dude from Galyfrey rolls…
