New foes set for Doctor Who Series 7

via Radio Times:

The Doctor Who and Sherlock writer says viewers develop a connection with villains when they first meet them and that continually bringing them back can hamper a show’s growth.

"One of the temptations, particularly if it’s a success is to keep repeating your hits, which means you hear it again and again and again," said Moffat.

"I always say new monsters are better in Doctor Who because you fall in love with monsters when they’re new," he told Le Village.

It’s an admission that may surprise some viewers, given that Moffat resurrected the Daleks within three episodes of having taken over the show for its 2010 series, but it suggests the Doctor will be facing some new foes in series seven.

Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” to be auctioned, expected to fetch $80m
21st-century-time-traveller:

Oooooh….an article (click through) about Munch’s “The Scream” being auctioned mentions the Silence….or does it? 

From the article:

While The Scream’s fame is undeniable, its ubiquity and widespread popularity are, at least on the surface, more difficult to explain.
An icon of misery and desperation makes for an unlikely decorative addition to the typical living room wall, after all.
 "I think this compulsion to look at things that trouble us is a fundamental part of the human condition. If you go to WH Smiths or Waterstones you find all these books on sale about abused children. The whole myth and industry around Vincent van Gogh is based on the same thing.”
Perhaps for this reason, The Scream’s influence on modern art has been considerable, as seen in Francis Bacon’s Screaming Popes series, Picasso’s Guernica and, of course, Andy Warhol’s silk prints of Munch’s work.
Popular culture has embraced the iconography, from the mask in Wes Craven’s Scream films to the Munch-inspired alien villains The Silence in Doctor Who. Munch himself was the first to produce this image in bulk, creating four versions - two paintings and two pastels - between 1893 and 1910, as well as a lithograph.

@TheSilencePR: It’s not that there aren’t new Doctor Who episodes airing now, it’s that we’re in every episode and you can’t remember them. #doctorwho
