"The BBC have officially confirmed that Doctor Who Series 8 has been commissioned with Matt Smith, Jenna Louise Coleman, & Head Writer Steven Moffat all returning. Filming is scheduled for the end of year, or Early next year. No word on number of episodes, how many Matt will do as The Doctor, or when it will air. Expect a split series run again for broadcast late 2014, with a possible mid series regeneration in 2014, and Moffat’s last run as Head writer too. At the moment, it’s looking like a Series 8 with match the format of Series 7, split over 2014/15, with a Christmas Special in between.”

Steven Moffat on the Doctor Who finale:
“We wanted a brand new monster to create chills in the finale. And the thought of stylish whispering almost faceless creatures was an idea that firstly scared me and that I thought would work well in an episode that looks forward and back.”
“It’s full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctors greatest secret. We’re not pretending, we’re not kidding, it’s actually going to happen. The episode is called The Name of the Doctor and involves our hero in a conflict that is very, very personal to him. Usually he’s saving other people, but this time he might be the one who needs to be saved.
“We’ll also find out what makes his new companion so impossible and there’s a surprise that no one has got right so far, and one that will change the course of Who forever!”
Hey there Steven MofFATHEAD. What’s up? Can you do me a solid and like, not ruin Doctor Who by giving the Doctor a name?
Unless his real name is John Smith. Which has been used frequently, eg by Tennant in Family of Blood, and it also makes some form of sense. Especially in the bigger picture of things. Which I might submit to and be okay with. BUT ANYTHING ELSE AND YOU WILL ROT IN HELL?!?
This is what I will call The Fridge Series. We have a collection of Doctor Who and High School Musical 3 fridge magnets, and alao a set of ‘geek words and phrases’. These are our current arrangements.
So this was my day. HOW WAS YOURS?
A reminder that Arthur Weasley just lost another son.
Here’s a question
If the image of an angel becomes an angel why on earth would the Statue of Liberty being an angel not cause massive problems worldwide since images of it are everywhere
Can Steven Moffat finally just admit he doesn’t know what the shit he’s doing, the angels have been in four episodes, all written by him, and he’s contradicted every single established fact about them by himself
Another point that probably is insignificant but still rustled my feathers: the Statue of Liberty is made of copper, not stone. Like. How is it a weeping angel then? Is it established that they can be made of whatever as long as it’s a statue? And if not, ????
Not to mention that I’d put all my money on the fact that only reason that episode was set in Manhattan was to put The Statue Of Liberty in it. Like he does with every other plot he ever writes. If The Weeping Angels were primarily known for being boys, I’d wager we would’ve seen it set in Washington DC with this
lolzies. so that happened.
ps. cause i cannot remember what the deal is, what happens if you were to like, smash the weepers with a sledgehammer? … does that, like, release them or something? or are they unbreakable? Cause they’re turned to stone, which can corrode and crumble, as seen in many episodes. So in THEORY you could, but I can’t remember if there was a consequence?
ha. ahahaha, hahahahahha
so i know i’ve said this a lot. but moffat really is not suited to doctor who. he fits perfectly in the world of Sherlock, cause it usually IS a huge mystery with crazy twists and junk. but he hammers it SO HARD into DW that every episode loses all its build up potential and just becomes such a wound-up drag. “LOOK EVERYONE LOOK AT THIS INSIGNIFICANT THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT ITTTTTTTTTTTT IT IS SO NOT PLOT WORTHY” *later* “oh actually it does have a purpose LOL WE’RE DOOMED wait no we aren’t cause look a button lets press it we are saved what a surprise” “my herooo00”
So anyway i was all ‘ugh the first episode of DW this season was so … typical. and it’s ‘twist’ actually made no sense cause of the whole voice thing. also the amy-rory divorce subplot thing was SO boring and noone cared ever.
dinosaurs I was like ‘ok. ridiculous as usual, and KINDA average, but overall I didn’t hate it cause doctor was all ‘you’re a dick, i’m gonna make you get dead’ which he never does ever. and it was secretly fun because dinosaurs.
um. …cyber cowboy one I kinda liked? cause doctor was, again, ‘0 shits you’re an ass, go die *buttkick out of town*’. And it overall wasn’t horrible, it ended kinda cute.
power of three i TOTALLY loved, it was just so down to earth back to basics and it wasn’t HOLY BALLS HUGE TWIST it was just ‘look, some stuff is happening. ok. it’s probs bad, but whatever, we’ll get to it laterz.’ Then shit went down and it was just. .. a natural progression.
Right now, I just read this:
my gut says ‘don’t watch this week because it’s just gonna be a shitty forced goodbye’ but my heart says ‘go away ponds we were done with you last season i should get this over with’
A reminder that Matt Smith is a real Time Traveler.
Not mine … but I was just about to make the same joke. Just thought I’d check the internet first :P
I give 0 shits about the Olympics but LOOKSIT’STHEDOCTAAAAAAAAAH :D
