Those of you who read my profile pages on different social networking sites will know that I love me some Doctor Who! this is kind of a messy year for the Who mythology with one of it’s greatest Doctors (David Tennant) leaving and being replaced by a much younger actor (Matt Smith). Instead of a normal season this year they are doing five special episodes spread out over the year.
They have already released the first one: Planet of the Dead!
Here’s a trailer:
Aside from Tom Baker, David Tennant has been my favorite Doctor. He plays the role with such child-like enthusiasm one minute and then can turn on a dime the next and be brooding, sharp and terrifying. The rumor mill has run rampant with who is coming back this season, what the stories will revolve around and which classic enemies will make their return. If the last few years have proven anything, though, it’s that the rumor mill is usually full of it and for every fact that actually makes it out of the BBC production offices there are thirty “red herrings” mucking up the water. We’ll see what eventually makes it to the screen.
Speaking of seeing, I need to get over to Tortuga now and see about getting this episode…
See you tomorrow!
