New Doctor Who Promo Trailer for Series 31 with Matt Smith

The new trailer promo for the first series of the 11th Doctor starring Matt Smith, series 31, has been released and it continues with the "spin cycle of doom" theme we saw with the publicity image released earlier this week. They do announce "Easter" as the start of the new series at the end of the promo. No, you don't need special glasses to see this, this version is not in 3D.

New Publicity Image for Doctor Who Series 31

Regular Gallifreyan Embassy website contributor, Troy Baker posted this find from The Sun of the latest publicity image for series 31 of Doctor Who starring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.

Doctor Who Series 31

Winter/Spring BBC Highlights Include the Return of Doctor Who, Billie Piper, Christopher Eccleston, Ashes to Ashes, and Being Human

The BBC Press Office revealed their highlights for Winter/Spring for BBC Drama which includes rock stars, Time Lords, and vampires.

Christopher Eccleston as John Lennon

While we are eager to see The Doctor return in the form of Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor this spring when Doctor Who returns, he won't be the only actor to play the Time Lord returning. Christopher Eccleston returns to the BBC in a biopic for BBC Four titled, Lennon Naked which charts the musician from his transition from The Beatles to the enduring and enigmatic icon.

It's Series 31 or 1, not 5 says Steven Moffat

In a recent DWIN blog post, it quotes Steven Moffat, new series Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who speaking of the upcoming series for the year 2010 (Matt Smith's first series as the 11th Doctor) in the latest issue of Doctor Who Monthly magazine:

"It’s Series Thirty-One of Doctor Who, and it's Series One of Matt Smith's Doctor, Those are both real numbers. I submit that 'Series Five of Doctor Who' means absolutely nothing unless you really believe that Matt Smith is the third Doctor. Everyone knows he's the Eleventh Doctor so that means it’s definitely not 'Series Five'. Whichever number you choose, 'Series Five' is the one that's flawed."

"'Series One' is an exciting sentence. 'Series Thirty-One' is an awe-inspiring sentence. 'Series Five' is a boring sentence - and also a complete lie."

This One Goes to Eleven. On Tap for and Shedding Light on Some Changes for Doctor Who.

Now that the end time has come for David Tennant as the Doctor, or rather, The End of Time, there is a new Doctor in the house, or rather TARDIS… Welcome, Matt Smith.

Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor

It is not only a change of Doctors, but with Steven Moffat taking the helm of the series as the new executive producer and lead writer, it is a whole new era for Doctor Who. Expect changes across the board to reflect it. 

We have already seen the new logo(s) for the series, the new Doctor debuted in the most recent special, The End of Time, Part 2. Doctor Who Monthly magazine is sporting an updated look, and we expect the same with the BBC Doctor Who website soon as well.

David Tennant: "…Nothing I say can really help him."

Reader's Digest David Tennant CoverREADER'S DIGEST EXCLUSIVE:
David Tennant has nothing to say to Matt Smith

David Tennant has admitted he has "nothing to say" to new Time Lord, Matt Smith.

Tennant told Reader's Digest, in an exclusive interview for the December issue, that he'd spoken to his successor several times "but there's nothing to say. I think we both thought we'd be able to exchange lots of ideas. But actually it's none of my business how Matt does it and nothing I say can really help him."

Talking about his final foray as the Doctor in this year's Christmas special, Tennant says "This year we've done something different. It is still set in Christmas, but it's perhaps not got quite as much, er…Christmas cheer as before." Tennant adds that come Christmas Day he'll be watching his own send off. "Just to enjoy the moment. It's my last Doctor Who – it will be nice to witness that."
