On another Doctor Who related note: "Journey to the Centre of the Tardis"... is it just me or is Matt Smith's eleventh Doctor looking increasingly like he's left academia behind and instead actually did just step out of a Jules Verne novel?

Ok, it's Monday night now, so if you've not yet seen the Doctor Who finale yet that's your own lookout.

Because, just wow and...
Spoiler:


Going to go out on a limb here and speculate (on the little bit of dialogue which passed between this Doctor and Matt Smith's 11) that this is the incarnation of The Doctor who ended the Last Great Time War.

In the meantime, Clara may well have just taken the prize for companion badassery, River was well done (and interesting to see her post-Library as well)... and of course it's alwyas fun to have Vastra, Jenny and Straxx along for the ride.
...Can't wait for the 50th anniversary special.

Seconding what Altifisti has said about Clara.

There's a surprisingly large amount of hate for Clara around, and I don't really understand it. Yes, she's another 'feisty' love-interest, who's brave, and slightly reckless but...

All of the companions in the new series of Dr Who are practically obliged to have stupidly fearless as part of their personality: What sane person would trust a stranger to the point of believing they're a time-traveller, willingly follow him into a confined space, travel with him... and then tell no-one? Not to mention that he's clearly insane, as he thinks he's a "time-lord" and hundreds of years old.

Anyone care to elucidate on the Clara-hatred?

To be fair, there was a massive buttload of Martha Hate as well after Rose was lost in a separate universe. I think it's multiple-series-Companion backlash. Amy and Rory were the Doctor's companions for, what, three seasons in a row? I expect they, like Martha and Jack and all the others, will make misc. appearances throughout the season that follows Clara.

That being said, anyone know where I can view the episodes online?

I think there's a fair bit in what El said: Clara's something new and is coming in after some very beloved companions (and, while I adore Clara, I still think I like the Ponds better... though they had more time as well of course)... it's similar to when Matt took over from David: we all wondered if he would be capable of carrying the role and there was plenty of "this is a terrible idea, he's too young, I'll never watch it again".

That and, I know I'm going to get shot for this: she's pretty and she's The Doctor's new companion... and at least half the internet (male and female) will immediately dispise anyone prettier than it, made worse that it's someone prettier than them in a role they want themselves or have some OC they think would be suited or it's not who they wanted or what they (as the oracle of all that could possibly be right in a fictional universe made by someone else) would have done or [insert any number of stupid overzealous-fan reasons to hate a new character/direction here]. We've all been around fandoms long enough to have seen it all before... or maybe I'm just overly jaded.

Prior to Doctor Who, Jenna Louise Coleman was best known for her role in Waterloo road, a show set in a Secondary school,

Was watching the tele in the hotel room here in London and BBC One was reminding everyone to tune in 24 hours from now for the live show to find out who will be the new (12th) Doctor.

WTF? 

Evidently Matt Smith announced on 01 June that he was leaving the show with the 2013 Christmas Special (now there is a lump of coal for you).

For those in the US, it's being shown at the same time live on BBC America (so 2PM Eastern / 11AM Pacific).

Seemingly, to be The Doctor (at least in modern times), you must have dressed in drag, on stage or on screen, at least once.

Yes. Ghost Shark.

And yes, it's as lame as you think it is.

Except SyFy is running a live Twitter feed.

Which turns if from Epic Fail to Epic Win.

Well with Ghost Shark, it can get you from any source of water. Even a cup of coffee.

Which led to Twitter comments like: "He drank the Ghost Shark. Drank.The.Ghost.Shark." and "When they said the Ghost Shark can get you from any source of water, you knew someone was gonna die on the toilet."

I found it quite humorous, which is odd considering how serious the main subject matter was supposed to be, not that I am complaining I really enjoyed it !

There's just no words to describe what I just saw. The ups, the downs, the sadness and the regret. The sheer crushing inevitability that was, itself, crushed by Clara's apparently boundless optimism and faith in The Doctor to do the right thing, was a tremendously powerful device, and the endless hope wrung out of the ending was even more powerful. 

Well, I guess I did a words. But holy God, that was beautiful.

It is available to view on the BBC Doctor Who page.

And the official BBC YouTube channel has "The Night of the Doctor", which bridges the Doctors of Paul McGann and John Hurt:



The episode, set during the Time War, shows the previously unseen last moments of the Eighth Doctor (McGann), and his artificially controlled regeneration into the War Doctor (John Hurt). It is notable for featuring McGann's second onscreen appearance as the Doctor, following his debut in the TV movie seventeen years earlier in 1996.[4] It is also, in the series chronology, the first appearance of the War Doctor.

In addition to the 50th Anniversary episode, BBC America showed the BBC docudrama An Adventure in Time and Space about the creation of Doctor Who and the tenure of the First Doctor.

I really enjoyed this. David Bradley did a great job of portraying William Hartnell and Jessica Raine was her usual excellent self portraying the producer Verity Lambert. Screenwriter Mark Gatis has written for both Doctor Who and Sherlock and his story was both entertaining and enlightening, covering the prejudice Lambert and Indian director Waris Hussein faced both due to their gender / race and the concept of the show itself - "science fiction for children".

I always feel a bit detached from that sort of docudrama because I'm wondering how much was elided, compressed and 'reassessed' to make a television script. However... god-damn if the shot where Bradley has a vision of Smith didn't yank the heartstrings...!

Series 21 of Top Gear (UK) kicks off on BBC2 on Sunday, 2 February and on BBC America on Monday, 10 February.


Also have to say I am really enjoying Series 3 of Sherlock.

I found the episode to be average. Best part for me was the 80's soundtrack. Next week's episode sounds much better, hopefully.

Top Gear this week... the hot hatchback challenge could basically be summed up with:


Though I do now think I'm going to go browse Carsales for 205 GTis.

The Nova's ability to be started by inverting its Hazard light switch was probably done deliberately, given how often it would have ended up in a ditch that ability would come in useful when you lost your keys in the crash !

I thought the Japanese OP wasn't very good, but it's a classic compared to the English language one.

Anybody been watching Helix on SyFy? Have to say that 11 episodes in, it's been really, really solid as a horror/thriller.
