Series 9 official trailer

Series 9 of new Doctor Who has been confirmed by the BBC to premiere 19 September 2015. This is the first released trailer.

Press release added:

Exploding with epic and thrilling adventures, Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday 19 September in the ninth series of the hit show.

The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is joined by Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for time travel on a cinematic scale. Having the time of their lives, the pair meet new and old monsters, and go on a journey that takes them to deadly alien planets, creepy underwater bases, Viking villages, a global Zygon uprising, and leads them through hidden alien dens, to the very end of time itself.

Meeting monsters old and new, the Doctor will come face to face with Missy (played by Michelle Gomez), a city of Daleks, deadly mercenaries called the Mire, terrifying ghosts and far more.

Having filmed in Cardiff since January, Peter Capaldi says: “Soaring through all of time and space, series nine sees the Doctor throw himself into life with a new hunger for adventure. The cosmos is there for the taking, thrilling, epic and enticing, and his to play in. But he’s almost reckless in his abandon. It’s almost like he’s running from something, something that if it ever catches him will turn his life upside down.”

Previously announced and taking up a guest role in the new series will be young new talent Maisie Williams, having already achieved global success for her role as Arya Stark in the fantasy drama series Game Of Thrones. Michelle Gomez (Missy) returns to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener, and UNIT are back with Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) returning to series nine following their popular entrance in series eight. Also confirmed as guest cast in the series are Rebecca Front, Rufus Hound, Paul Kaye, Joivan Wade and Sophie Stone.

The show’s ninth series has been written by lead writer Steven Moffat, Toby Whithouse, Jamie Mathieson, Peter Harness, Mark Gatiss, and new writers to Doctor Who — Sarah Dollard and Catherine Tregenna; directed by Hettie Macdonald, Daniel O’Hara, Ed Bazalgette, Daniel Nettheim, Justin Molotnikov, Rachel Talalay; and produced by Tracie Simpson, Derek Ritchie, Nikki Wilson and Peter Bennett.

The star-studded cast continue to shoot in Roath Lock studios, Cardiff Bay, having previously filmed in Tenerife, and South Wales locations Caerwent, Caerphilly Castle, Cardiff Castle, St Athans and Margam Park.

Doctor Who has had a decade of success and is one BBC One’s most highly regarded shows. The much-loved brand is already a phenomenon delivering on a global scale, with the last series’ (series 8) consolidated average at 7.4 million.

Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One and will be back on air this September.

For the new series, designer Michael Pickwoad has introduced brand-new roundels to the inside of TARDIS.

The Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic #1 trailer, October 15

The first number of The Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic will be releases just a few days from now. Whovian, get them! :)

Offering shocks, surprises, and galaxy-shaking revelations, seasoned TARDIS pilot Robbie Morrison (Drowntown, The Authority, 2000AD, Nikolai Dante) and New York Times-bestselling artist Dave Taylor (Batman: Death by Design; 2000AD) mark the start of their first five-issue run by diving headfirst into the console room and pulling all the levers they can – spinning the new Doctor off to his most challenging destination yet!

Freshly regenerated and with a new head full of unanswered questions, the Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi) whisks Clara Oswald (as played by Jenna Coleman) away to a strange and distant world.

Clara thought she was in for an evening of marking essays on the Metaphysical Poets, followed by going out on a date – or at least trying to. You know, normal stuff.

Instead, she’s facing down exotic flora and fauna in her best dress, backing up the Doctor on a trek through traumatically alien undergrowth – and she doesn’t even know what the Doctor is searching for, or what will try to kill them should they find it!

New Face! New Doctor! New Beginning! Get in on the ground floor of this amazing ongoing series!

Writer: Robbie Morrison
Artist: Dave Taylor
Cover Artist: Alice X Zhang
Colorist: Hi-Fi
Publisher: Titan Comics

River Song, the journey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBgCOCDpp-o

This should be one of the rides of a lifetime. At least, the ride of River Song’s lifetime: in this video you can
watch every single scene from Doctor Who that River Song appears in… in the order she lived them. You might need some tissues: from birth to death, River Song has had one of the most wild timey-wimey adventures anyone could ever have with the Doctor.

The video was compiled by Todd and Conner Partridge.

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”.

Karen Gillan will star in US comedy pilot Selfie

Karen Gillan has been spending a lot of time in United States since leaving her role as Doctor Who’s Amy Pond: she faced a haunted mirror in US horror film Oculus, she also shaved her long ginger locks for the role of blue sexy Nebula in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie Guardians of the Galaxy and now she’s set to take the starring role in a new ABC comedy pilot entitled Selfie.

The series was described as a modern take on My Fair Lady, and it follows the misfortunes of Eliza Dooley, a young woman in her 20s who seems to be more obsessed with her online persona than her professional image. In the pilot, a video Eliza makes about her humiliating break-up goes viral, and she recruits the help of a marketing expert to help repair her besmirched reputation.
