As announced on the official site, filming the season 7 of Doctor Who will start tomorrow in Cardiff and somewhere in Wales. There were announced a lot of surprises, as usual, especially it’s already been confirmed that Toby Whithouse and Chris Chibnall are writing episodes for the new series of Doctor Who.

The first director to shout ‘action’ will be the award-winning Saul Metzstein whose previous credits include Micro Men (starring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman), the critically acclaimed Late Night Shopping and BBC Wales’ Upstairs Downstairs. For the very first time, Doctor Who will be produced at the new BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff, which officially open in March. The production team includes Steven Moffat (Executive Producer and lead writer), Caroline Skinner (Executive Producer) and Marcus Wilson (Producer).

The new series will see Matt Smith return as the Doctor in what Steven Moffat has described as ‘the biggest, the best and the most ambitious season we’ve ever made’. Karen Gillan (Amy) and Arthur Darvill (Rory) are both back, for what will be their final voyage with the Doctor – a thrilling rollercoaster ride which will culminate in a heart-breaking farewell to the Ponds. But there will be more shocks, surprises and adventures to come when the Doctor meets a new friend, in the last very place he could ever have expected…

Matt Smith is going to feature on Top Gear as the ”star in the reasonably priced car”. The show was recorded recorded last Wednesday, Matt will appear in the episode due to be broadcast at 8:00pm, 26th February on BBC2/BBCHD. The episode is 5th of 7, Series 18 with the duration 1 hour.

Jeremy Clarkson and James May pay tribute to quirky and recently deceased Swedish car maker Saab.

Richard Hammond races a rocket-powered flying man against a rally-spec Skoda and Jeremy smokes around the track in the Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale and the tyre shredding Mercedes C63 Black.

I consider the video as fun, but some might consider it something bad. It’s a fan made video that combines scenes from Sherlock and Doctor Who. It’s description from youtube contains the following text.

“The Weeping Angels have found their way to London, but The Doctor is trapped in time. It is down to Sherlock and John to save everyone, but the Angels already have the TARDIS.”

I’m amazed no one has thought of the name ‘A Study in Blink’ as a combination of ‘A Study in Pink’ and ‘Blink’ before, so I HAD to get in there. The Weeping Angels seemed a good match for Sherlock, what with them being psychopaths and him a borderline sociopath.

Matt Smith is well known for the role in Doctor Who, but he was first star-spotted on stage at the Royal Court. As he returns as patron of the theatre’s Young Writers’ festival, in this interview he talks to Andrew Dickson about limbering up for the next batch of Doctor Who, why he can’t wait to get back into theatre – and about the challenges of peeing live in front of an audience.

You must know that Karen Gillan is going to leave Doctor Who some time in the next season. She will stop acting the role of Amy Pond and the departure will be permanent: she says that she does not want to come back in other episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

There is a 2 page interview on IGN tv about the reasons of this departure: she needs a change. It was her decision and she talked to Steven Moffat about leaving the show. How she’ll do it is still a secret, but it seems that she’s leaving in the blaze of glori.

There are some interesting things said there, just read it.

The Huffington Post announces about an unholy alliance between “Star Trek’s” Borg and “Doctor Who’s” Cybermen into a story into crossover comics. The story will be published in May, courtesy of an IDW comic book.

According to a Monday press release from the company, “Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2″ will feature “an unholy alliance” between the two villains. This sounds like an excellent idea for a comic book and, not just because two races of relentless, mechanized villains are better than one, but because an on-screen depiction of that kind of epic tale would be unworkable (especially given that “TNG” ended in 1994) and hugely expensive.
So who you gonna call when two mechanical races team up to bring disaster to humanity? Jean-Luc Picard and the Doctor, obviously.
