Radio Times: Who’s That Girl?
TV listings magazines are out in force this week celebrating the return of Doctor Who and, once again, the Radio Times has dedicated a cover to the show.
Steven Moffat’s Series 7 Part 2 episode guide:
The Doctor is a man of secrets. He’s been with us for nearly 50 years, but how little we know about him! Why did he set sail to see the universe in the first place? What happened to his family that sent him on his way? Even the show’s title is a reminder that he hasn’t got round to introducing himself yet…
Eight new episodes are coming your way right now. But before you even start, just remember this – the Doctor doesn’t tell you everything, and you might be in for a shock.
The Bells of Saint John…
Ever sat on a train, with a laptop, and watched all those wireless base stations appear and disappear on your screen? We live in a teeming ocean of wi-fi. The air is a soup of data, and don’t you ever worry that something else might be swimming along inside it? Well, if you haven’t worried so far, you might be about to start. Because here’s a gentle warning — sometimes you might see some strange alien symbols appear in your wi-fi menu. Don’t click on them. Just don’t click. Because that means there’s a Spoonhead really close. The Doctor returns to contemporary London and finds himself meeting Clara Oswald for the third time — he’s been searching the universe for her, but will she even know who he is? There’s hardly time to worry about it, though, because all humanity is in terrible danger…
Matt Smith responds to recent criticisms that there isn’t enough on-air content planned for the show’s 50th Anniversary:
“I think there’s only so much you can shoot. There’s a Christmas special and eight episodes, there’s the 50th anniversary, and on top of that you’ve got Mark Gatiss writing a script [An Adventure in Space and Time about Who’s origins]. There’s only so many you can make each year without compromising the quality.”
