Please no! I hope this isn't the case. Though if it, she would regenerate if she died, would she not?

Reincarnation? Time Lords regenerate, they don't pop up with no memories in different time periods after being dead for years.

Loved the episode. Loved Clara. Coleman and Smith's chemistry is electric. They never seem to miscast on this show.

They we're in the episode where River Song is revealed as Amy and Rory's daughter. Other than these two episodes, they haven't been seen (but will at least once this season). It was funny how Simeon(sp?) mentioned how Dr Doyle was basing his detective stories in the papers on them.

I don't think she's a TimeLord or anything like. She didn't seem to have any knowledge of the Doctor in the soufflé episode so I think it's more likely that they're all descendants, clones or some other timey-wimey stuff.

The big news is that Christopher Eccleston has had a discussion with Moffett about doing the episode and Eccleston has expressed interest in doing. David Tennent is an old friend of Moffett and all other living Doctors have signed on for it and the relatives of the departed doctors have signed agreements for usage of their family members ima

According to some reports over here, the BBC finally paid money to Baker that he felt they owed him and that has made him happy.

The doctors of Baker and before never saw the money that was made on the show outside of the UK. AFTER Baker left, the BBC world contracts where created and actors started receiving money based upon the selling of the show and merchandise around the world.

The big get us Eccelstene coming back—even if it is for thirty seconds (we are missing a doctors regenerations and that may finally be answered)

That would be very disappointing, unless we get to see the time war (or some of it).

I'd rather see Eccleston and Tennant onscreen together for thirty seconds = ******* McGann's regeneration.

2 hour movie to air leading up the 50th anniversary
http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/01/30/do...-harry-potter/
http://tvline.com/2013/01/30/bbc-ame...versary-movie/

interesting cast has been announced

Brian Cox as the head of the BBC
David Bradley (from harry potter) as the first Doctor

This had been speculated late last year. Should be interesting for die hard DW fans because of the fact the whole regeneration William Hartnel who's health was failing during the last two seasons he was on led to the entire regeneration of the Doctor.

Hartnell was the Doctor for the first 130 episodes

Info background and other information taken from Galifrey base and BBC websites


Warning their are some spoilers for those who have not bean paying attention to the confirmed reports of the show. The format is that you will have 5 epidodes in September and then the Christmas episode. And then the second batch in April 2013. There are several reasons for this. But the news most Who fans are waiting for is who will be back for the 50th aniversery. So far two of the former Doctors, Christopher Eccleston and Tom Baker had declined to appear, all other Doctors are up to do it again and most of the living sidekicks including Billie Piper

FORMAT AND SCHEDULING


The next series of Doctor Who, Series 7, is also known as Series 33 (for those counting from the beginning when it originally started in 1963) and is the longest running science fiction television show in history. Series 7 will start transmitting sometime in the Autumn in 2012, perhaps as early as September, though nothing has been officially announced yet. In March 2012 Steven Moffat announced that the new series would run in two separate parts with five episodes shown in the fall ending with the Ponds (the current companions) vacating the TARDIS at the end of the fifth episode; and then a Christmas Special that would introduce the Doctor's new companion (Jenna-Louise Coleman), and the remaining episodes of Series 7 would air sometime in 2013.

Filming Dates: Filming for Series 7 started February 20th, with Episode 2; Matt Smith revealed in an interview that filming is due to conclude sometime in December 2012.

Locations: This year, two of the episodes were partially shot in the Spain. Filming also occurred in New York City, in the US, for episode 5. For more on Locations, please visit the Doctor Who "On Location" Fan Reports Summary; otherwise shooting locations will be indicated in the individual episodes below. OR the locations website at DoctorWhoLocations.


SETS AND PROPS


TARDIS Interior: Here's a lovely Panorama of the TARDIS set commissioned by the BBC awhile back. It hasn't changed much. Here are photos taken inside the TARDIS set at Upper Boat on March 26th. Everything is pretty much the same as last year, except for this additional wall which was built specifically for series 7. The TARDIS set is being moved, rebuilt, or a little bit of both at their new studio location at Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff Bay.

TARDIS Exterior: The exterior is identical to series five and six.

Sonic Screwdriver: Should be similar to last year. As far as we can tell, there hasn't been any changes to the sonic prop. Here's a gif animation of last year's sonic.

CASTING


THE DOCTOR

Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor. Matt's costume is similar to what he wore last year for the first part of Series 7. He's wearing the same tweed jacket with white shirt from Series 6, alternating with a blue shirt, and red and blue bow ties. He is wearing a green coat in episode 3. In the second part of Series 7 filming, he has been seen wearing a different jacket (a frock coat along with a new item: a waistcoat), and he's sporting several different hats.

THE COMPANIONS

Karen Gillan is playing returning companion Amy Pond. The Doctor meets her first as a child. The Doctor returns to visit her twelve years later and brings her along in the TARDIS as his companion, mainly to help sort her out. Amy is responsible for remembering the Doctor back into existence at the end of the Big Bang. She also gets married to Rory. Last series the Doctor returned Amy and Rory to Leadworth, deciding that traveling in the TARDIS with him was too dangerous. Amy's costumes have changed a bit to a slightly more conservative style, and this year she's been seen wearing a leather jacket and boots, and even a dress.

Arthur Darvill plays Rory Williams, now married to Amy Pond and travelled along in the TARDIS with Amy and the Doctor in series Six. His character was developed last year into more of a team player with a lot more gravitas.

Jenna-Louise Coleman will be playing the Doctor's new companion. She will be introduced in the 2012 Christmas Special. The only thing we know is that it will be "the most unusual introduction to a new companion you've ever had." So says the Moff.

RECURRING CHARACTER

Alex Kingston plays a recurring character, River Song. She first appeared in series 4 when David Tennant was the Doctor, in The Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead; stories that occurred in the 51st Century. What makes her interesting is she actually died at the end of those episodes. For now, though, she is very much alive. Last series it was revealed that she is actually Amy and Rory's daughter. Moffat has also heavily implied that she is also the Doctor's wife. In Episode 13 last year, she actually marries the Doctor in another dimension in time. However, it's still ambiguous as to whether she actually is married to the Doctor, or married to a robot Teselecta that looked exactly like the Doctor. She has been seen on the set for Episode 5, so yes, she's back.

Mark Williams plays Rory's father, Brian Williams. He appears in the two Chris Chibnall episodes, Episode 2 and Episode 4.




.1 Asylum of the Daleks

Written by: Steven Moffat
Directed by: Nick Hurran
Produced by: Marcus Wilson

Shooting Locations:

Sierra Nevada, Almeria, Spain (7-15 Mar)
Bute Esplanade, Cardiff (5 Apr) photos1; photos 2
Mount Stuart Square, Cardiff (6 Apr) photos

Cast:
Karen Gillan (Amy Pond); Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond-Williams); Matt Doman; David Gyasi (Harvey); Nicholas Briggs (Voice of the Daleks); Barnaby Edwards (Dalek); Nicholas Pegg (Dalek); and lots and lots of other Daleks.

Monster(s): Asylum of the Daleks
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8YLb4Z4jU0

Plot Details:

This episode opener beginning with the shot shown in the trailer of snow-covered mountains and the Doctor lying in a snowbank, and a Dalek eye stalk shoots up from beneath it. It has been rumored that some scenes may be set to take place in China.

There were multiple Daleks involved in the filming this episode, even Daleks from way back in the 1960's. Steven Moffat posted a photo taken of Karen Gillan and Matt Smith posing with a Dalek from the 1st Doctor's era. Also, DWM #447 has a cover full of Daleks and the headline is: "Every Dalek Ever." Most likely there is some sort of Dalek war or competition involved. Perhaps it even takes place on Skaro (speculation only, however. We really have no idea what's going on in this episode except "there be Daleks"... and lots of them).

When questioned why he redesigned the Daleks, The Doctor Who Brilliant Book 2011 has Moffat saying : "… we only had 3 Daleks (in the prop room). They're our Big Bad. We need loads and loads of Daleks. I'll claim it's a new race of Daleks! The fact is we're not going to lose the old Daleks. We're keeping them. They're coming back. We'll just use them all at once, and have different ranks. All I've done is give the Daleks an officer class." Looks like that may be happening.

Steven Moffat also declared that the Special Weapons Dalek is returning for this episode! So look out for him.

In DWM #646, producer Caroline Skinner commented: "We'll have more physical Daleks in the room than ever before in the history of Doctor Who. The running total is somewhere between 20 and 30 real ones." “We’re collecting every Dalek known to man. Lots of different Daleks. It’s going to be great.” And yes, they have been gathering the Daleks, Russell T Davies lent his personal Dalek to join the filming, and here it is.

And one of the special effects guys who was working with the Daleks posted this lovely picture with some nice comments about how the filming was going. That was before he deleted his Twitter account. Well, we're not surprised.

Scenes from filming for this episode tell a little of the story:

Towards the beginning of the episode (scene 5), Rory is getting on bus in London, with divorce papers for "Amy Williams" in his hands. There is a mini Dalek eye stalk with a blue light on the bus, (the bus driver seems to be handling it); indicating the Daleks have arrived in London. Then everything is then surrounded by bright lights.

Amy and Rory are later shown at their blue house (that the Doctor gave them); waving goodbye to the Doctor.

Then another scene is filmed where they seem to have a bit of a row, with Rory storming off and Amy crying: "I hate this." I wonder what they could be arguing about? Could it have anything to do with .... the Doctor???

Apparently there are lots of explosions and Dalek mayhem in this episode, according to our ex-Twitter-using crew member. He also mentions something about Doctor Who Confidential filming there, so it seems they are still making videos, but probably just for the BBC web site. If that's true, that is great news (keep in mind this has not been announced. If we see it, great!).

It appears that most of this episode is filmed indoors on a large set, and we don't really know much about it. There have a been a few photos leaked and the cover from DWM, but that's about it. So perhaps we'll be surprised. No doubt however, we will hear plenty of "you will be exterminated!" banter from Mr. Briggs.

Steven Moffat has indicated episode 1 will be like the movie Die Hard…. Also he mentioned that in series 7, Amy & Rory are no longer living in the TARDIS, but will be picked up and returned back to their home now. Also he mentions that some time passes between each journey.



7.2 EPISODE 2 : Dinosaurs on a Spaceship


Written by:Chris Chibnall
Directed by: Saul Metzstein
Produced by: Marcus Wilson

Shooting Locations:

Church Road, Penarth (20 Feb) Photos
Southerndown Beach, Bridgend (22 Feb) Photos1, Photos2
Bute Esplanade, Cardiff (25 Feb)
Julian Hodge Building, Cardiff University (TBC)

Cast:

Karen Gillan (Amy Pond); Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond-Williams); Brian Williams (Mark Williams); David Bradley (Solomon); Rupert Graves; Rudi Dharmalingam (ISA Worker), Riann Steele (Queen Nefertiti).

Monster(s): Automaton Robots, Dinosaurs?

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8YLb4Z4jU0

Plot Details:

Believe it or not, this episode seems to have an ancient Egypt theme, involving the Doctor, Amy, Rory, the famous Queen Nefertiti (that sculpture of the Egyptian queen with the outrageous headdress ring any bells?), Solomon (the wise?) and Rory's Dad (played by Mark Williams). Could Brian Williams (Rory's Dad) be an archeologist? Who knows, time will tell. In the trailer, there is a shot of the Doctor, Rory and Brian entering what looks like an Egyptian Tomb. What they find there is old codger named Solomon, the famous aforementioned Egyptian queen with the elaborate headgear, and some robots who have an uncanny resemblance to some Automaton robots from the Sarah Jane Adventures show, The Empty Sky). Yeah, those guys. Solomon seems to have a connection to these robots somehow. It he controlling them? Or is someone else?

Part of the story is set in Egypt, and is GCI-heavy, according to this poster.

Could Rupert Graves be playing Howard Carter, the famous ancient egypt archeologist? Who knows, but looks like there's not a dull moment in store for this episode.

The set for this episode is supposed to be huge, one of the biggest ever for the show. However, later it was revealed that Episode 1 (the Dalek episode) was even bigger! So, since this was also filmed in studio (like the Dalek episode), we were unable to find out much about it.

We do, however, suspect that this episode was supposed to have been part of series 6, but was postponed until series 7. This poster thinks it could be possible.


Scenes from Filming:

The first filming of the year started with Episode 2, at Amy and Rory's blue house with the TARDIS-like door. Most of the filming was inside, so nothing much to report here, except for Mark William's appearance.

Several scenes were shot at Southerndown Beach (Bad Wolf Bay to fans, also Alfava Metraxis in Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone). Filming took place on the rocks. It was pouring for awhile. Pap photos here

There's a lot of running around with the Doctor, Arthur and Arthur's Dad at this location. Amy was nowhere to be seen, though shows up later in Egypt. Apparently, Rory and his Dad have a great relationship going. And from the trailer, it looks like Rory gets to take his father on an adventure in a spaceship of some kind.

Chris Chibnall has also written episode 4 of this series, and Rory's Dad, played by Mark Williams, also has a significant role in that episode. Chibnall tends to write solid "Who By The Numbers" episodes and episode 2 sounds like one of those stories.

This episode's title supposedly contains the words: "..... on a .....", whatever that means. (Why is "Snakes on a Plane" the only thing I can think of? LOL! )

Note: The Daily Star just announced there will be an episode called "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship." If true, could it be this episode? Doesn't sound like it, but who knows? Most of it was filmed in a studio, so we don't really know if it makes a U-turn at some point. Keeping in mind it's the Daily Star, here's what they say:


Quote:
In the sci-fi show, the Doctor and companions Amy and Rory land on a spaceship. They are unaware that lurking inside the craft are a bunch of prehistoric monsters including a T-Rex, stegosaurus, raptor and pterodactyl.

Sounds a bit odd, but I'll guess we'll find out in a few months.



7.3 THE GUNSLINGER or A town called Mercy


Written by: Toby Whithouse
Directed by: Saul Metzstein
Produced by: Marcus Wilson

Shooting Locations:

Fort Bravo Studios, Almeria, Spain (7th-15th Mar); photos1; photos2; photos3

Cast:

Karen Gillan (Amy Pond); Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond-Williams); Ben Browder (Town Marshall); Rob Cavazos (Walter); Dominic Kemp (Kahler-Mas); Adrian Scarborough (Kahler Jax); Garrick Hagon; Andrew Brooke (The Reckoner); Joanne McQuinn (Sadie).

Monster(s): The Reckoner (Cyborg)

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8YLb4Z4jU0

Plot Details:

.

This episode is a Western, taking place in what looks like the American West during the 1870's ... In the trailer the BBC released at the Doctor Who Convention in March, we see the Doctor wearing a badge, pointing a gun... getting literally thrown out of town and at one point he is apparently involved in a sort of shoot out with a cyborg. The Cyborg is called "The Reckoner" and I reckon he's trying to take over the town (or the earth, it's always the earth, isn't it? Or IS this earth?). And all the typical western archetypes are in this story: there's Sadie, who owns the local saloon; she's blonde, beautiful, but probably misunderstood, of course; and a Marshall who apparently has deputized the Doctor into saving everyone from the cyborg evil-doer who just flew (as opposed to rode) into town. The Marshall looks familiar, because he's Ben Broder, who's been a main character in a couple of other popular sci-fi shows (Farscape and Stargate SG1). There's bad guys in black hats, and maybe good guys in white hats, etc. This story also sounds a bit familiar (however, we still may be surprised), but still good fun. And who doesn't loves the Doctor in a cowboy hat?

There's electric lamps (in a time when there was NO electricity -- I think the Doctor refers to that as "anachronistic electricity") that seem to flicker a bit probably whenever the cyborg is about to appear on the screen. And the Doctor gets some horseback time, and at one point we see him literally galloping off the screen, most likely in an out-of-town direction.

There's also some mysterious symbols painted on some of the townsfolk; not sure exactly what it's for, but perhaps the symbol keeps the bad guys away. And Sadie makes sure the Doctor has one of those "face tattoos" too.

And that Reckoner has a big, bad sci-fi gun built into his arm. He's a mean machine. This may be his own white spaceship too!

Ben Browder, who plays the Sheriff in the story, was quoted as saying "I've just got back from the UK and Spain where I just did an episode of Doctor Who…. It was a very exciting moment, I got to work with the Doctor, I got to hold his hand. I have seen the inside of the TARDIS. I play a marshall in the 1870s."

A poster speculated that there are two alien beings (Kahler Mas and Kahler Jax), played by two rather significant actors (Dominic Kemp and Adrian Scarborough) who are part of this story, and are probably involved with the Cyborg in some way. Those definitely aren't names one would normally associate with people living in the old West (more like Jethro, or Jacob, but never Kahler, Mas or Jax), so look out for those two to play an important part.

Scenes from filming:

Most of the episode was shot on location in Fort Bravo Studios in Almeria, Spain. These studios have been the set for many western films (such as The Magnificent Seven and A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly). It's now a theme park, but can be used as a movie/tv set at any time. The sets were built in the 60's and have been used for over 100 films.

We don't really have a running dialog as to what they were shooting, but we do have a lot of photos, thanks to our Spanish fans. Matt is on a horse quite a bit, there is a cyborg that arrives in town that seems to be the episode's antagonist, it looks like the Doctor gets involved in some kind of shootout, there's a saloon girl, etc. Well, use your imagination to fill in the rest of the story.

Some nice PAP photos from the Daily Mail here.

Here's a nice photo of the TARDIS parked on the town's main drag.



7.4 CUBED or The Power of Three


Written by: Chris Chibnall
Directed by: Douglas Mackinnon
Produced by: Marcus Wilson

Shooting Locations:

Glendale Hotel, Penarth (30 Apr);Church Road, Penarth (30 Apr-1, 7, 8 May) Caerphilly Castle, Caerphilly (2-3 May);
Bute Esplanade, Cardiff (4 May);
St Cadoc's Hospital, Gwent (4, 12 & 13 May); Neath Abbey, Swansea (9 May);
Cast:
Karen Gillan (Amy Pond); Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond-Williams); Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart); Stephen Blything (Henry VIII); Mark Williams (Brian Williams); Steven Berkoff (Mr. Shanks).

Monster(s): The Black Cubes

Plot Details:

At the beginning of the story (scene 2), Amy, Rory and the Doctor are all hiding under the bed of King Henry the VIII. That's how it starts. Most likely they get home, somehow, by the seat of the Doctor's pants.

Then there is the rest of the story. This one is about UNIT. UNIT stands for Unified Intelligence Taskforce, a military organization used by Doctor Who and it's spin-off series. UNIT investigates and combats paranormal and extraterrestrial threats to the earth. The Third Doctor was stranded on earth for quite awhile back in the 70's and worked for UNIT while he was trying to get his TARDIS functioning properly again. So older fans who watched the classic series are quite familiar with UNIT. There were also UNIT stories in the Sarah Jane Adventures (The Death of the Doctor being one of them), and there were some UNIT forces in the 10th Doctor's stories (Planet of the Dead, etc.).

The enemy in this story hasn't been divulged, but it apparently has to do with some mysterious black cubes that materialize in the town that Rory and Amy live in (Leadworth). Rory's father comes to knock on the Pond's door, with one of these cubes in his hand, and he declares "What are you doing lying around for? Haven't you seen them?" Thanks Simon.

There are lots of scenes where a band of UNIT soldiers seem to be hovering over the Pond house. Also the cubes attach themselves to cars, windows, everywhere … here

Who controls these cubes is not known, but they are most likely not particularly nice people. One poster reveals:


Quote:
The cubes are, obviously, very important to the story in ep4.

Proximity to them seems to bring about an illness of some sort, and quite serious it is too... Serious enough to stop one of the Doctor's hearts when he walks past...

Also, they count down and open up. Possibly releasing some kind of spores? I don't know. There is one little girl who seems to understand what up, though, at the hospital.

and he also mentions:


Quote:
Oh, and twin hospital employees in green scrubs - they hid their faces while leaving the set on Saturday, but they were clearly twins (probably why they hid their faces)!

Could they be the bad guys? And what about Steven Burkoff (Mr. Shanks). He was never seen at the filmings, so he must be doing work in the studio. Perhaps he's the evildoer in the episode; he's a such an iconic bad guy.

Caroline Skinner commented in DWM #447 about this episode, saying: "Chris Chibnall's script is a massive rollercoaster ride of a sci-fi story. It's also a beautiful piece of writing. It's all about Amy and Rory's relationship - full of warmth, love and a celebration of their time on the show. Chris will scare you to bits with this episode!"

So King Henry the VIII, UNIT, and evil cubes (and the people who control them) all make up this story, and the Doctor has to save the day. What's not to like? Sounds like fun!


Scenes From Filming:

There is a scene shot at a restaurant with Amy and Rory present.

UNIT Headquarters seems to be located in an old castle (Neath Abbey); they are using the Great Hall at Neath Abbey says this poster. Perhaps there is some connection between it and Henry the VIII. Then perhaps there is no connection at all.

The cubes show up in the episode when Rory's Dad knocks on Amy & Rory's door holding one up for them to see. See Mugim0e's video here.

There is a barbecue party where it looks like the Pond's have invited a few friends over to celebrate their anniversary.

The Doctor arrives at the Pond's house via TARDIS. Before he goes in, he jumps on a playground slide (watch this video, LOL!), and then, of all things, climbs up a tree to inspect a cube that's placed there. Yes. He's being ridiculous, as usual. He's The Doctor.

A poster reveals this from someone watching filming:


Quote:
A scene was filmed where Amy and Rory host a summer barbecue anniversary party at their house with several guests, including Rory's father in a hat and Hawaiian shirt. One scene begins with Amy on phone with The Doctor. Amy: "It's our wedding anniversary!" The Doctor then arrives on the scene. Doctor: "I know! Come on!" Amy: "We've got guests!" Doctor: "Yes, and bring your husband!"

UNIT soldiers were on location as well. Another scene was filmed in an alley in which The Doctor is shouting to Amy. Also filming of The Doctor's feet playing with a soccer ball and The Doctor standing on a ladder in the garden, clearing cubes from the gutter of the sun-room. The filming moved back to the alley where The Doctor is working on a car with the hood up, ripping things out of the engine. After a break for a meal, more scenes were filmed in an upstairs room of the house of Amy and Rory, this time in the same pajamas that they were filmed in for the Bute Esplanade filming.

UNIT arrives at the Pond's at one point or another with an army of soldiers. A new character, Kate Stewart, is introduced and we think she may possibly be Brigadier Lethridge-Stewart's daughter, who may be working for UNIT.

There are a lot of shenanigans going on in the Pond house. At one point there is a big explosion, and some other stuff going on there (which required special effects people).

They seem to be using one house for the exterior shots, and another one or even two houses (right next to each other) for interiors. look here Which is par for the course in Doctor Who.

Rory is wearing hospital scrubs in a couple of scenes, so apparently he works at the hospital again (thanks Mugim0e). Also a tweeter saw him dressed like a nurse at the St. Cadoc's set.

The last filming scenes for Karen Gillian and Arthur Darvill's time in Doctor Who were filmed at St. Cadoc's Hospital (er, Leadworth Hospital) on Sat. May 12th (even though they don't actually leave the show until Episode 5). Sad to see them go, but as we all know, Doctor Who is all about change. Goodbye Ponds. It's been great!

Cast:

Monster(s): The Weeping Angels

Plot Details:

WARNING: A lot of filming was seen and recorded for this episode, so if you read on, you will be spoiled!

This episode is all about the Weeping Angels, and the final departure of both Ponds from the show. They are really leaving, and this is their last appearance in Doctor Who.

The story has the Doctor picking up Amy and Rory in Leadworth for a trip to New York City. They head to Central Park for a picnic. The newspaper Amy is reading in Central Park seems to have a date of September 15, 2018. Time has passed between stories, according to Steven Moffat. Amy is wearing glasses to read; we don't really know why, but the Doctor borrows them and puts them on too, maybe for a lark. A poster mentions the "glasses" here.

At the Park the Doctor is reading an interesting-looking book. The name of the book is called "Melody Malone," and the book cover has a "pulp fiction" look to it (with a graphic of a woman who looks a lot like River Song). The Doctor seems to be engrossed in it, even reading some of it aloud. Amy reads the paper, and Rory enjoys looking at the scenery in the park, the tall buildings, and kissing his wife.

Rory goes off to get coffee... then trouble starts. Of course it does, do you think you can go anywhere with the Doctor and not have something go wrong?

There is a statue of a giant angel in a fountain in the Park, and there are some scenes with the Doctor running from something or another.

Seems like the Weeping Angels have invaded New York. They most likely have an agenda of some sort that somehow involves the Doctor, by sending Rory back into the past... ... we also highly suspect that the Statue of Liberty might be involved in their devious plans (just because it's there, and because it sounds cool. No other reason. It's not an angel, and not even stone!). We really don't know much about what goes on with the Weeping Angels in New York, except that we think Rory somehow gets zapped by that weeping angel on top of the fountain and sent back in time to the late 1930's.

The Doctor and Amy go back in time looking for Rory. Then somehow, they end up back in the same time as he does.


Scenes from Filming:

There was a lot of filming done on location in New York: the Doctor and Amy walking along the beach ; and there is some more intrigue with Amy and the Doctor running around, most like searching for Rory.

When Rory arrives in the past, he immediately gets mugged by a gangster. Then River Song shows up to save him in a big flashy antique car. Rory is amazed to see her; then he realizes she is the woman on the cover of the book the Doctor has been reading, He blurts out: "You're Melody?" and gets shoved in the car .

There's some gangsters, and a big gangster boss (most likely Mike McShane, who's playing a villain in this episode, according to McShane). River may be involved in some way with them, but we don't know any details. There is also a man named Sam Garner, who might be a 1930's detective, who keeps appearing in the filming. He's probably a good guy.

This video shows several things filmed in Tudor City, New York: (0:15) (Sam Gardner?) getting out of a car in the 1930's; (1:58) Rory jumping (probably him "time jumping" courtesy of a Weeping Angel into old New York) looking around bewildered, then (2:50) Amy & the Doctor running from the old car, looking up in the sky, and then dashing away fast from something...

At some point River meets up with Amy and the Doctor. River is driving them around in a car. See this photo (it's River's double, which turns out to be a man... I'm sure it will be fixed in post-production. LOL!) This video (1:26) has River stopping the car and Amy & Doctor running out (also, there is more of Rory "time jumping" at the beginning of the video).

River seems to be telling Amy something unpleasant in this video. Then we hear someone (the Doctor?--they used a double for Matt that night) say: "Got it! It's in a place called Winter Quay. The car." Seems they are looking for something.

Winter Quay is an apartment building in New York. It seems to be central to the story. Rory may have been sent there when he arrived in the past. From DoctorWhoLocations:


Quote:
"Winter Quay" is actually a block of flats, and the interiors were filmed in Cardiff. Rory was in a cellar, and gets zapped by something (presumably an Angel) and appears in New York in the past. Arthur had to jump off a small box and look confused and shaken up. Then he looks up, at the Statue of Liberty. He was told to gaze at it as if there was something not quite right about it.

Next, they filmed [Sam] getting out of a car. He makes a comment about the Statue of Liberty too, and also looks confused, and walks on.

Amy and the Doctor run up to the front of Winter Quay. There are Weeping Angels standing on plinths at the front of the place. Amy and the Doctor run up into the building and get zapped by white lights... you can see it here. They filmed it twice, once, here, where they run right to the front door, and another time, here, where they notice the weeping angels.

Amy and the Doctor end up in Times Square at one point (probably looking for Rory).

Amy did some filming alone here with a couple of Weeping Angels. Not sure where it fits in the story.

Actually, it's hard to tell in what order any of these scenes take place. Especially because Steven Moffat wrote it.

What happens to Rory? Spoilers in the following links. One poster says this. Also he says this. and this.

Some of the last scenes shot for this episode was done at Box Cemetery. In the graveyard, the TARDIS looks like it has caught on fire or has been partially turned to stone on the outside. This photo shows Amy reading the book, while the Doctor puts out the Tardis (fire?). There is a funeral. It seems that Amy, the Doctor and River are attending. This poster says this about it. Amy has a confrontation with a Weeping Angel in the graveyard. The speculation goes that she gets sent back back by the Angel to where Rory is alive in the past. The Doctor tried to stop her, but River pulled him away. video

There are also cherub weeping angels in this episode.

And there is this mysterious statue, which appears in one of the opening scenes of the story. An American man (Sam Garner) walks over in the rain to look at a statue, according to this filming observer. Video here.

Then there is a scene where the Doctor is sitting on a park bench in New York's Central Park, looking sad and forlorn. He is glancing at a page torn from a book (perhaps it's a letter written to him). The Doctor gets all choked up and cries. [Not sure exactly if this is near the end of the show or not, but it does sound like he's reading bad news. video] Also, this scene was filmed with and without Karen present, glasses and no glasses.

We know that Amy and Rory won't be returning to the TARDIS, and Steven Moffat has already assured us of a sad ending to their story. So take your handkerchiefs with you when you watch this story, it's going to be a 5-hankie weeper.

According to multiple sources it looks like Moffett will be killing of either Rory or Amy Pong in this episode as it marks the end of their run on the show and their has been wide speculation that Moffet wants to take the show down a raod that it has not been down in a long time.



7.6 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2012


Written by: Steven Moffat
Directed by: unknown
Produced by: Marcus Wilson

Shooting Locations: Somewhere near Cardiff

Cast: Jenna-Louise Coleman (Unnamed New Companion).

Monster(s): Ghosts ?

Plot Details:

The Doctor's new companion is introduced in this Christmas episode.

And the episode may be a ghost story, at least that is what Doctor Who Adventures Magazine is saying.

Here's a link to Jenna-Louise Coleman's audition script (which was printed in Doctor Who Magazine #446) which besides being written by Steven Moffat, and incorporating some dialog pinched from Blink, this script fragment happens to be about ghosts. Coincidence? Probably not. Moffat says it's "nonsense" he wrote, and the companion is not named Jasmine. Okay. But considering we have nothing to report on this episode; better to have something,eh? And we can all laugh about it later.

One thing Steven Moffat mentioned recently is that the new companion is going to give Doctor Who "the most unusual introduction to a new companion you've ever had."

And here's a bit more about the new companion: She talks fast: "It's not often the Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it's about to happen. Even by the Doctor's standards, this isn't your usual boy meets girl," says Steven Moffat in DWM #446.

"There are elements to [Jenna's] character that are rather special, and will come as something of a surprise. She had to be witty, clever, inventive, strong, versatile, and very individual." says Andy Pryor, Casting Director.

I haven't been impressed with the last two episodes. Jenna Louise-Coleman is amazing, though.

Looks like i need to re-watch the least episode as there was an important plot point that I may have missed--

I thought it was when the doctor mentioned he had brought the new side kicks grand daughter to the planet--but I have been told no. Looks like the side kick is Amy Pond grand mother or something. It is now being suggested that the plot point has to do with the time lords or the mast coming back this season

not impressed with the first two episodes--but it looks like they are both building blocks for something

So before the war.

If the Master comes back I will be stoked. Easily the most convincing and dangerous villain the Doctor has ever faced, minus of course the Time Lords them selves, but that's only if you can consider them villains.

The master is a bad ass and Jon Sims played him excellently. The guy tricked humanities final descendants in to travelling to a planet where they would finally have some peace, but NO, the Master murders them all and turns them in to floating balls of death. He then creates the biggest paradox the universe has ever seen by using the Doctor's TARDIS to bring them back to present day earth and have them murder their own ancestors.

If that's not badassery, I don't know what is.

Another wild guess: Oswyn is the Doctor's sister. Either that or her mother is actually the key.

TBH, the Master was always a bit of a joke. Delgado put as much energy and flair into that performance as he could, but it was still a black haired, goatee'd evil genius explaining his plans for domination, and The Doctor thwarting him.

There is a reason the actual iconic villain in the Who-saga has always been, and will always be, The Daleks.



HNNNGGGG.

For the record, he meant his first companion, Susan Foreman, who was explicitly his grand daughter.

Better episode than last week. They've gotten some fairly famous or known guest stars fro the episodes so far. Though I have to say, I had trouble not seeing Dougray Scott as Sir Matt Busby in this one. Even had the same accent.

I really enjoyed that episode. Instead of solving the issue in 5 minutes at the end of the episode it was a tad bit more gradual.

The Doctor coming to the conclusion that it was a love story, and that he had misread the monster situation was just the right kind of saccharine and optimistic for Doctor Who, too.

Definitely the best episode of either half of the season.

Well that was an interesting episode and i have no idea what the hell happened, or how, at the end. Tardis really is bigger on the inside.

Next episode looks like fun, Lizard woman detective and her wife and the alien soldier.

I found the inner workings of the TARDIS to be absolutely amazing.

Think how awesome, and deadly the time war was when you take into account the actual size of a TARDIS, and not only that, but that the Doctors TARDIS is a very old model of TARDIS, created well before the time war.

I loved seeing the actual "interior" of the Tardis too. The library was great. I'm really curious to know who or what the hell Clara is.

The involvement of Strax, Madame Vastra, and Jenny always make for good episodes.
