Let’s go behind the scenes in the first episode of the series 10 of New Who. Discover just what it takes to be a Doctor Who monster!
A new series has started last night, a new companion has been introduced, the TARDIS is once again ”bigger on the inside” (everyone’s favorite shout when they first enter the blue box). And you don’t have to see the Doctor to enjoy the show: the way Bill Pots (Pearl Mackie) enter is simple and clear.
It’s not a complex episode (as others), the action is quite simple (the Doctor and Bill meet an alien creature and run away from it), but it works just fine if you consider it an introduction to something that’s going to end in an epic way: this is Steven Moffat’s last season as a producer and Peter Capaldi’s last season as the Doctor. Michelle Gomez and John Simms return as Missy / Master, but that’s another chapter of the story.
The story of the first episode was written by Steven Moffat. With Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill Pots), Matt Lucas (Nardole), David Olawale Ayinde (Edwardian Working Class), Nicholas Briggs (Dalek), Jennifer Hennessy (Moira), Stephanie Hyam (Heather).
In the next episode The Doctor and Bill travel to one of Earth’s first colonies in Smile.
Let up watch Peter Capaldi, new companion Pearl Mackie, showrunner Steven Moffat and producer Brian Minchin discussing series 10 in London as part of the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival, Sunday 9 April 2017.
The first episode of the new series will be on your screens in just a few hours.
To celebrate Red Nose Day last month the BBC presented the full 1999 Doctor Who Comic Relief special The Curse of Fatal Death. Starring Rowan Atkinson, Richard E. Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Joanna Lumley as the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat.
If “Hamilton: An American Musical” was about Doctor Who instead, it would probably be A Gallifreyan musical and it would open with this musical number titled “The Doctor”. And it sounds great! This music video mashes a fan written song to the tune of “Alexander Hamilton” with clips from the entire history of Doctor Who on screen so far. Sit back, pretend you’re on Broadway, and learn about our favorite Time Lord.
The parody premiered live in 2017 during the Idiot’s Lantern sketch comedy show at the Los Angeles Doctor Who convention, Gallifrey One.
Parody & video conceived and written by: Alexander Daniels
Recorded, mixed, and edited (audio & video) by: Scott Sebring
Vocalists: Melissa Bierend, Alexander Daniels, Adam Joseph Ferry, Cooper Karn, Kevin Kittridge, Amanda Jane Salmon
Original “Alexander Hamilton” written by Lin-Manuel Miranda
How does a madman, ignored, son of a human and a
Time Lord, dropped in the middle of a forgotten
Spot within the far-flung constellation of Casterborous, dejected,
Grow up to be a hero and respected?
The Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness
He started his journey
By stealin’ a type 40,
By fighting the Daleks’ war, he
was writing their whole story
Before tea, when Cybermen tarnished his shot at glory.
And then one day when Zoe and Jamie were swept way
Away, joined in the fray, they struggled to keep their guard up
The foes that they fought were no match for our cosmic hobo,
The brother was ready to beg, steal, barter, or borrow.
Then the Time Lords came, and devastation reigned
Our man saw his future drip, drippin’ down the drain
“Too much interference”
“you cannot refrain,
So on Earth you must remain,”
No TARDIS to ease his pain
Well then UNIT came around, they said, “This kid is insane, mack!”
Made him an advisor ‘till the Time Lords gave his keys back
“We gave you education, don’t forget from whence you came
And nobody knows your name! What’s your name, man?”
My name is The Doctor.
I say that my name is The Doctor.
I’ve seen a million worlds, but there are more,
So just you wait, just you wait
Then they came back, the Cybermen, once again, crash a ship
Some years later, the Doctor absorbed poison from the Spectrox,
Half-dead, sittin’ in his own sick
The scent thick.
The Doctor got better, but Adric went quick.
Moved on by the Val’yard, a darkness that he had kept inside,
But when the evidence was falsified, with acquitted pride
The voice said, “(Doctor) The Rani’s hot on your trail”
He started retreatin’ and freein’ his regenerated self.
There would’ve been nothin’ left to do
For someone less astute
He would’ve been dead or destitute
When he was shot in San Francisco
Tasked with movin’, removin’ the remains of the Master
Pushed him in the Eye of Harmony and ran off faster.
(Chasin’) the Bad Wolf throughout all of time and space before
(Embracin’) vortex energy, see
him as he stands at the (oooh)
Console of his ship headed for a new land
On New Earth you can be a new man
On New Earth you can be a new man (Allons-y)
On New Earth you can be a new man (Allons-y)
On New Earth you can be a new man
On New Earth
Your name is The Doctor (His name is the Doctor)
And the Oncoming Storm are you (Oncoming Storm are you)
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time
Oh, your name is the Doctor (His name is the Doctor)
And the Silence will fall for you
Will ever outrun your shame?
Will the Time War destroy your name?
Our world will never be the same, oh
Pandorica is open now, see if you can spot him
(Just you wait)
He’s just a madman with a box and no one’s caught him.
(Just you wait)
After Lake Silencio the Universe forgot him
We fought with him
Me? I died for him
Me? I trusted him
ROSE TYLER/MARTHA JONES
Me? I loved him
And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him
There’s a million worlds that you have seen
But just you wait
What’s your name, man?
His name is the Doctor!

Yesterday (Mon) he said: “I’ve been working on it for nearly a year and I’m just adding the last few details. “I watch Doctor Who and I thought the Tardis would be interesting to build so I decided to have a go.”
