The video above is a part of their concert at University of Chichester a few days ago, 11th of April 2014.
Have you seen the red moon last night? If you have not seen it, you must have found about it…, right? Anyway, it’s a very good moment to remember the second episode of the second series of Doctor Who: Tooth and Claw.
Spending time with Queen Victoria in the remote Torchwood house, the Doctor is treated to the story of the beast that supposedly roams the valleys. But when the full moon reaches its peak, the Doctor discovers that the story is true, and Rose is trapped in the basement with a werewolf.
Following the success of last year’s Easter event, the Doctor Who Experience will be hosting the ‘Monster Family Day Out’ on Wednesday 16th April 2014. So get ready: the monsters are coming in Cardiff next week. There will be full of activities and fun to keep your own little monsters busy this Easter.

Looks interesting, right? The magazine covers The Snowmen (2012 Christmas Special) plus the eight episodes of the 2013 series (The Bells of Saint John, The Rings of Akhaten, Cold War, Hide, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, The Crimson Horror, Nightmare in Silver and The Name of the Doctor).
This is a fan-made CG short film. The animation is the culmination of about three months of work, from initial concept to final result. The fan had to use every single trick and technique he knew, as well as learn countless more.
The programs used were Mudbox, Maya, After Effects, and Premiere.
As part of Doctor Who Confidential the executive producer Julie Gardner and director Graeme Harper discuss the Water Zombies from The Waters of Mars and how difficult they were to get right and not too scary.
The result? Watch the escape from the Water Zombies…
The date is 21 November 2059, and The Doctor is on Bowie Base One, the first human outpost on Mars. Base commander Adelaide Brooke discovers some of her crew have been infected with a mysterious life form which takes over the host body and causes it to gush copious amounts of water. The Doctor and Adelaid flee two water zombies on sonic enhanced Gadget, previously operated by Roman Groom from the central dome. Andy and Tarak, still infected, chase the Doctor, Adelaide and Gadget back to the central dome, but are unable to pursue them any further due to the hardinger seals in the central dome airlocks and are contained in the base’s “bio-sphere” section while Maggie is secured in the medical wing. The Doctor, however, is worried about the doors and whether they can protect them from creatures with such power, making a chilling statement, “Water is patient, Adelaide, water just waits. It wears down the clifftops, the mountains, the whole of the world. Water always wins!”

Steven Thompson, the guy who wrote The Curse of the Black Spot back in 2011 and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS last year, was confirmed to return to Doctor Who and he will wrote some more great episode of the series 8. It’s the first time he’s written for new Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
Douglas MacKinnon is also returning to Doctor Who, in order to direct a batch of the new episodes. Showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed that will write the series opener as well as episode four. Phil Ford (The Sarah Jane Adventures, Wizards vs Aliens) has been tapped to write the second episode, while the writer of the third will be confirmed in the future
Meantime, the writer Mark Gatiss has promised that Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will change everything and that he brings a whole new set of rules. As it should be. Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: “The Doctor’s always the Doctor – but you can have a lot of fun playing with people’s expectations. Everyone knows how the previous Doctor would react in any given situation – and now you just don’t know!” Steven Moffat has written Capaldi’s first full Doctor Who episode, which Mark Gatiss described as “thrilling”.
Some have expected that this hilarious pre-movie introduction should be on the disc with the Day of Doctor because they watched it in theaters. One of this fans found some videos on Youtube, edited them, and uploaded the result on his channel.
Enjoy watching this great Q&A Panel for the Doctor Who fans! The adorable Karen Gillan takes the stage and makes you fall in love with her all over again like she was your very own companion. Sylvester McCoy steals the show with his humor. GREAT Doctor Who knowledge revealed here and just a great time showcased here. From the final days with Matt Smith, the eleventh Doctor, to Sylvester McCoy’s final days as the seventh Doctor and a little something about Guardians of the Galaxy, Karen’s recent movie.
