Presenting the “When Is Doctor Who Series 7 Premiering In My Country This Weekend” Click-and-Drag Game!

For those of you who may have missed our post about this weekend’s season premiere of Doctor Who Series 7, we’ve constructed this handy dandy click-and-drag game to tell you where you should watch “Asylum of the Daleks” and when.

Click on each gif and drag it in order to find out when you’ll be watching this weekend’s premiere, who you will watch it with, what character you will cosplay as, and what you will post to Tumblr about it.

Of course, this game is not valid in all territories and if it determines that you should travel three continents just to see the premiere, we suggest taking it less as a directive and more as a modest suggestion.

Of course, if you want all of the Doctor Who Series 7 premiere info now, you could just click through to the Series 7 Premiere Date Superpost instead.

Cheers.

What is Pond Life? Steven Moffat & Caro Skinner interviewed

From the Doctor Who Blog:

Pond Life is the new mini-adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy, Rory and some surprise familiar faces! It picks up the story of the Ponds and follows their lives in the way that only Doctor Who can, culminating in a cliff-hanger that leads us into Asylum of the Daleks.

Directed by Saul Metzstein (Dinosaurs on Spaceship/A Town Called Mercy), the first part of Pond Life will premiere on the BBC Doctor Who site at noon (UK time) on Monday (27 August). Part 2 – 5 will be released daily at noon throughout the rest of the week and the omnibus edition will be available online and on the BBC’s Red Button on Saturday, 1 September – the day that the new series returns with Asylum of the Daleks!

Pond Life’s writer, Chris Chibnall (42, The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood) commented, ‘It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives,’ and  Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, described it as ‘beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny… a truly heart-warming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor.’

In the video above, Executive Producers Steven Moffat and Caro Skinner discuss Pond Life and you can watch Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill introducing the mini-adventure now!

Mark Gatiss to write Doctor Who 50th Anniv. biopic: 'An Adventure in Space and Time'

The BBC today announces that a special BBC TWO drama has been commissioned to mark the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who next year.

An Adventure In Space And Time will tell the story of the genesis of Doctor Who - first broadcast on 23 November 1963. Exploring all aspects of the longest-running science fiction series to date, the special one-off 90-minute drama will also look at the many personalities involved in bringing the series to life.

Written by Mark Gatiss, it is executive produced by current Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat, and Caroline Skinner. The single drama was commissioned by Ben Stephenson Controller, Drama, and Janice Hadlow, Controller of BBC Two.

Mark Gatiss said: “This is the story of how an unlikely set of brilliant people created a true television original. And how an actor - William Hartnell - stereotyped in hard-man roles became a hero to millions of children. I’ve wanted to tell this story for more years than I can remember! To make it happen for Doctor Who’s 50th birthday is quite simply a dream come true.”

Steven Moffat, Executive Producer, said: “The story of Doctor Who is the story of television - so it’s fitting in the anniversary year that we make our most important journey back in time to see how the TARDIS was launched.”

The production and transmission schedule will be confirmed next year, along with casting.
