Matt Smith


New Doctor, New Costume, and yes, New TARDIS

The Sun and Daily Mail (among other tabloids we imagine) have additional photos of Matt Smith (as the 11th Doctor) and Karen Gilan (companion Amy Pond) shooting the new Doctor Who series set to appear on BBC One in spring 2010. The photos in The Sun also reveal a bit of a spoiler, which we will not mention here. The redesigned TARDIS exterior reflects back to the early days of the series. Notice the return of the St. John Ambulance Cross emblem to the right door.

The Daily Mail includes a photo which reveals that the Doctor's new costume also include braces (suspenders), perhaps another nod to the Troughton era.

First Glimpse at the 11th Doctor Costume

Karen Gilan and Matt SmithBBC News has posted an article along with the first published photograph of Matt Smith in his new threads that he is wearing as the 11th Doctor. 

Shooting of the new series began today, Monday in Cardiff. In this photograph (see below for large photo) of Matt Smith along with new companion, Amy Pond played by Karen Gilan can be seen wearing dark rolled up trousers, tweed jacket and bow tie, along with black shoe-laced boots. 

The new series slated to debut in the spring 2010 features Matt Smith as the Doctor taking over the role after David Tennant (whose term as the Doctor comes to an end later of this year). It also features Steven Moffat as the new Executive Producer and Lead Writer for the series, taking over after Russell T Davies completes his term ending at the close of this year with the last of the specials.

The Eleven Doctors Special for Children In Need?

The Daily Mirror is reporting that all eleven Doctors will be coming together for a special one-off special for Children in Need this November. It reports that the 15 minute episode will be included in BBC1 annual Children In Need appeal in November and shooting of it will begin in September.

This is not the first time a rumour of this nature appeared in the tabloids. The same thing was said to be happening last year for Children in Need except with 10 Doctors which did not happen.

The article states that "images from their original shows, stretching from 1966 to 1974" will be used for the actors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, and Jon Pertwee who have since passed away. They will make cameo appearances through footage from these previous episodes.

Do you fancy bringing back the tradition of the Doctor's face appearing in the opening credits of Doctor Who?

Yes, I welcome its return
