I'm in Cardiff at the moment. Went to the Doctor Who Experience yesterday, which we enjoyed - even though it was embarrassing because we didn't realise it was a guided tour and everyone else had kids with them. smile

I'll keep a look out for any location filming.

Speculation continues over the launch date of the new series of Doctor Who, which, despite a number of Internet expectations, has yet to be confirmed by the BBC.

The return of the series was originally anticipated in the UK for the August Bank Holiday weekend, based upon the pattern of preview screenings of Let's Kill Hitler at the BFI and Edinburgh last year; this date had also been suggested by a number of US media outlets, though it seems that these reports were picked up through fan enthusiasm rather than official sources, especially with BBC America having already announced their series of four Doctor Who documentary specials over the August weekends. Also, when asked at the Asylum of the Daleks screening last week lead writer Steven Moffat would only indicate that the show will return "soon".

With the the 25th August ruled out, focus turned to the 1st September. BBC America have devoted an entire day to Doctor Who, showing the entirety of last year's series plus The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe - the latter's scheduling of two hours (8-10pm) suggested that perhaps there was a missing programme to show at 9pm. The date was also reinforced by iTunes listing the series as being available from 1st September. However, early morning viewers were treated to a trailer on BBC America earlier this week which specifically mentioned an on air date of the 8th September - however, the channel has now reverted to trailers saying the series is coming soon. It is unsure whether the trailer was a mistake or if BBC America jumped the gun on an announcement.

Meanwhile, in the UK the new edition of listings magazine Radio Times announces that "Doctor Who is back!", with the next issue (1-7 Sep) promising a free Dalek wallchart, plus interviews with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Steven Moffat - the latter also providing an episode guide to the new series. However, the magazine has in recent months carried a number of front-covers/coverage of new shows that aren't necessarily in the week of publication so it isn't clear-cut that Doctor Who will premiere in the UK on the 1st September, and the show is currently absent from the BBC Media Pack for that week, implying the series may have a later debut.


The situation is likely to be clarified later this week. Schedules in the UK for the week beginning 1st September will be finalised in the next couple of days, and the press pack for the week beginning 8th September is released on Thursday.

As soon as the date is confirmed it will be reported by Doctor Who News.

Gotta be a whole bunch of over paid execs who can't get their head out of their ass long enough to make a decision. Seriously, how do they manage to put on their pants in the morning?

Anyone watch it yet? I though X was an interesting character. Curious to see where it goes from here.

BBC America have about three hours to go before they screen it.

Despite how much I disliked the last series, I thought I'd give this one last go and I'm glad I watched it as I thought it was, for the most part, terrific. I thought some of the exposition was a bit too speedy but generally it was in my view probably Matt Smith's best to date.

I thought Jenna-Louise Coleman was superb and really didn't see that twist coming at all. Not sure I like the way she broke the 4th wall but I'll be very interested to see how they bring her character back - I think she will make a great companion. .

The only thing I hated - and for me it was a major thing - was the score. It was terrible, intrusive and, in places, totally out of place. And there was way way too much of it.

So despite my previous reservations I'm now willing to give the new series a go. I just hope it can maintain the standards of the first episode because if it starts slipping back to the previous use of Moffatisms I'm going to tune out again PDQ.

I loved the score. Its always been "in your face". Nice take on some old themes. Already can't wait for Series 7 soundtrack. Seems they did a huge "rewind". Not sure how die hard fans are gonna feel about that.

I didn't like the "sudden" fabricated conflict for Amy and Rory. Came out of no where. Her profession seemed ridiculous too. How did that come about? (Edited out a spoiler) No one can replace the chemistry Karen and Matt have together.

Although it's labelled series 7, some fans still like to use the original season numbers, so this series is called season 33.

Well I'd like to use the number 33 but I hate the word 'season' in this context, so I'm fucked.

I don't know why it was called season. I much prefer series myself.

Yeah, it seemed to be included only to have a more emotional punch at the end.

I did see it coming that Hannah was a Dalek, or inside one. If the Doctor can't hack into anything, something's going on smile. I did like the fact that the "where did you get the milk?" line first was just a random funny line, and then turned to be the answer to it all.
I do wonder how Hannah is going to be turned back, but I'm sure that a lot of Moffat's signature timey wimey explanation will be involved smile


Wasn't bothered by the music, really. The music is always pretty much on the forefront, and it's been less annoying than in many other recent episodes.

She's been doing that since at least before "Closing Time" last season.

Yep, I stand corrected. A friend of mine said the same thing. I just don't remember that at all. frown
