‘The Snowmen’ review

– Aaa, refreshing to see that you take an interest again! Was she nice? asked Madam Vastra on the phone.

– I’ve just spoke to her! says the grumpy Doctor.

– And made your usual impact, no doubt!

– O, no impact at all! continue the Doctor with the same tone. That days are over.

– You can’t help yourself, it’s the same story every time, and it always begins with the same two words!

– She’ll never be able to find me again, she does not even have the name! Doctor! What two words?!

– Doctor? asked Clara pulling her beautiful head through the trap on the roof of the carriage. DOCTOR WHO?

The fans of the Doctor Who series already know that BBC One and BBC America have broadcast the Special Christmas episode, The Snowmen. The dialog from the beginning of this article appears in the first part of the episode, when a Doctor mourning his loses (the newest one being the Amy and Rory‘s disapearance) and prefer solitude, considering that the good old days, when he was saving the Earth, humans and Christmas, have past and they will not return.

The action is happening in the year 1892, and Madam Vastra and her companions (Strax and Jenny Flint) are investigating the problems that appeared with the strange snow fallen over town and the carnivore snowmen. The one behind all these is Doctor Simeon, the representative of the Great Intelligence institute, a sinister individual interested on the pond in the Clara’s master backyard. In the previous winter the Captain Latimer’s children’s Governess have drown in that very pond, and Doctor Simeon was interested on the ice that copied the woman’s genetic structure in order to create an army of live snowmen. With their help he wanted to conquer the world and end the human kind.

So the Doctor have to end his solitude (especially because of Clara who’s always searching for him, first driven by curiosity, then by need) in order to save the world. One more time. He does not save the Governess in the end, Clara dies, but, at least we take a peek of the Tardis when she visits it. If you haven’t already know, the TARDIS have a new look that have been presented the first time in the episode broadcast yesterday.

It was an interesting episode, very funny. The snowmen keeps you around the TV/computer not only because of the action itself (it does not have too many breaks), but also because of the dialog. Strax, the Sontaran traveling with the Doctor and Madam Vasta in this episode is very hilarious… but I let you discover how.

A few months ago, when the first episode of season 7, Asylum of the Daleks, had been first broadcast I had the surprise to recognize Jenna-Louise Coleman playing a character in it. She had been announced as the next Doctor Who companion after the exist of the Ponds (Amy Pond and Rory Williams) and she was scheduled to first appear in the Christmas Special episode (yesterday) under the name Clara.

Does the name Clara Oswin Oswald tells you something?  It’s the full name of the Governess from yesterday’s episode… and the character played by Jenna-Louise Coleman in Asylum of the Daleks. More: they are both dead! And, even now, Jenna-Louise is the current Doctor’s companion. Have I made you curious?  I say it’s enough to make you try to find more about all these… about the mystery surrounding the new character and the Doctor’s run to meet her again.

The cast: The Doctor (Matt Smith), Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), Dr Simeon (Richard E Grant), Strax (Dan Starkey), Jenny (Catrin Stewart), Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Captain Latimer (Tom Ward), Alice (Liz White), Digby (Joseph Darcey-Alden), Francesca (Ellie Darcey-Alden), Voice of the Snowman (Ian McKellen), Voice of the Ice Governess (Juliet Cadzow), Uncle Josh (Jim Conway), Young Walter (Cameron Strefford), Walter’s Mother (Annabelle Dowler), Bob Chilcott (Ben Addis), Lead Worker (Daniel Hyde), Girl (Sophie Miller-Sheen),

Director: Saul Metzstein, producer: Marcus Wilson, Writer: Steven Moffat.

All the Daleks in existence

Some time ago BBC was searching for all the Daleks known to man… At that time I knew that something was happening, but I was not sure what and when. I knew, of course, that something BIG was happening, as usual when the Doctor is involved… but I had to watch the Asylum of the Daleks to find out exactly what: the Parliament of the Daleks. And, why not, the Prime Minister. Of the Daleks.

Some time ago, today, I found about the effort made to reunite every Dalek ever made… I don’t think it was all hard work, it must have been some fun some times along the way, but it’s interesting to find out more details about the job.

“It’s only when I read Steven Moffat’s script in its entirety that I thought: ‘Oh God, what are we going to do now?’” said series producer Marcus Wilson, who was tasked with the logistical nightmare of assembling Asylum Of The Dalek‘s pepper-pot party — most of which they didn’t even own.

“We needed help,” he said. “We called them back from the BBC, borrowed older ones from exhibitions, renovated a few that have been battle damaged over the years. A lot of the show came to be, however, from fans who lent us Daleks that they had built themselves — most of which were so detailed we could shoot on them in HD close to camera. Even [former show-runner] Russell T. Davies has a Dalek in his hallway, so we went up to Manchester to pick it up from him. We must have had over 30 different Daleks on set and we only had around five of our own.”

The two main sequences that required numbers was the Asylum (spoilers!) and the more grandiose Parliament scene, which features a CGI wide-shot with 20,000 Daleks — powered by Solid Angle’s rendering software, Arnold, a batch renderer that allows you to animate “render multiples and multiples of Daleks that maybe even a year ago we wouldn’t have been able to achieve on a television schedule.”

More information about how the Daleks and their CGI image have been used can be found here.

Doctor Who Prequel: Asylum of the Daleks

I just found out about this Doctor Who prequel, and that’s not a surprise at all: I don’t have a subscription on iTunes in Unites States and I don’t have access to US Amazon InstantVideo from a US IP Address. Accordingly to Youtube video description until September 2 only people from US could watch the video.

If you have already watched Asylum of the Daleks it’s ok to enjoy the prequel… as I already did.

Asylum of the Daleks reports after broadcast

As expected, the first episode of Doctor Who’s series 7 was a hit from the number of viewers point of view. The Guardian says that the Doctor return to BBC1 with more than 6 million viewers, beating the ITV1 rival Red or Black? though The X Factor remained the top Saturday show.

The BBC1 sci-fi drama averaged 6.4 million viewers and a 29.3% audience over 50 minutes from 7.20pm. ITV1’s Ant and Dec gameshow Red or Black? averaged 3.5 million viewers and a 15.7% audience share between 7.25pm and 8.10pm.

This was something of a reversal of fortune from the first weekend in September 2011, when Doctor Who – returning for the second half of last year’s series – averaged 5.5 million and 25.9% against Red or Black? with 6.6 million and 29.9%.

On Saturday, ITV1’s The X Factor averaged 8.6 million viewers and a 36.8% share from 8.10pm, then a second instalment of Red or Black? had 3.3 million and 14.4% from 9.10pm.

On the other hand, news.com.au says that more people downloaded Asylum of the Daleks legally in 24 hours than the most popular illegally downloaded show over a whole month. Breaking the iView record should count, isn’t it? 😀

The ABC received the highest amount of daily plays on iView ever after airing the premiere episode of Doctor Who on Sunday – just hours after it aired in the UK.

In comparison, the most heavily downloaded television show in Australia -  How I Met Your Mother -  was pirated 37 458 over the month of February last year, according to marketing and metrics company, Jumpwire Media.

Asylum of the Daleks received 75,900 plays in less than 24 hours after it aired on Sunday at 5.10am, in Aunty’s novel attempt to stop users from pirating the episode illegally.

That number only makes up about 10 per cent of the show’s potential TV audience, in its current Saturday 7.30pm timeslot, however the number is significant as it means that the ABC’s bid appears to have been successful.

The episode aired online almost a week before it hits TV screens on ABC1.

Episode 1, Asylum of the Daleks

You know about the hate between the Doctor and the Daleks, right? You might never believe that the Parliament of the Daleks would ask the Doctor to save them, but that happened in the first episode of the series 7.

The Asylum of the Daleks, the place where all the insane and the uncontrollable of the Daleks had been sent for ages. The place where the “normal” Daleks were so afraid to go they had to send their Nemesis in order to find out about the strange signal being send from there. The place where a spaceship penetrated the force field surrounding the planete and crashed on the surface, where a beautiful girl-junior entertainments manager was hiding out for an year in the wrecked spaceship hacking the most advanced warrior race the universe has ever known.

Finally, the place were we all meet the future Doctor’s companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. Surprise! You were wrong to expect to meet her after Amy and Rory’s departure in the fifth episode… but that’s the beauty of the time travel: you don’t always meet in the same order. Remember the Doctor’s and River Song’s story. It’s too fast to say if the new companion’s story is going to happen the same, but the expectations to watch as it happens are GREAT!

Have you watch the episode? Than you already know the story. If you haven’t yet watch it you should know that the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams were kidnapped and taken to the Parliament of the Daleks. In order to save the Daleks (and themselves), they were send to the Asylum of the Daleks to stop the force field surrounding the planet in order to be purged by the Daleks from the spaceship from the orbit.

They had help from the brilliant girl hiding on the surface, and the Doctor decided to try and save her also. And… that’s all what I am going to say. I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the people that haven’t watch the episode. It’s a great story, I enjoyed watching it.
