“I think those three should have their own show… They are just brilliant.”
Go inside the Doctor’s relationship with Madame Vastra, Jenny & Strax - and discover what classic British comedy MATT SMITH based his relationship with Strax on, and what led STEVEN MOFFAT to create such a unique character.
If you’ve seen the episode, definitely check this one out. It’s very good.
Thanks to everyone who’s entered the “It’s nice to do something nice for someone” poster giveaway so far. (Do something nice, post about it, we’ll pick someone at random to win a poster autographed by Matt, Jenna, Steven, and Caro)
Keep it up!
We’re a little more than two hours away from the UK broadcast of The Crimson Horror and a little more than 6 hours away from the Australian broadcast with the US and Canadian broadcasts soon after so see you soon.
Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman will star in a special mini episode of Doctor Who – a prequel to the series seven finale – available to watch via the BBC’s interactive (UK-only) Red Button service.
Shot in a dreamlike style and set in a dusty old museum, He Said, She Said will see the Doctor and companion Clara talking directly to camera as they reflect on how little they really know about one another.
The three-minute prequel will first become available to watch following the penultimate episode of Doctor Who series seven on Saturday 11 May. Viewers will be able to access it between 7:40pm and 12 midnight by pressing the red button on their remote controls and selecting Doctor Who. They can then watch it again each evening right up until the final episode airs on Saturday 18 May on BBC1 – and the Doctor and Clara’s secrets are finally revealed…
No wait — we don’t think we’re going to do it. We know we’re going to do it.
UPDATE: the contest post is live!
So we’re going to give away a big poster from The Snowmen signed by Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Steven Moffat, and Caro Skinner tomorrow, Friday.
It’s our prized possession. If we were standing in the market at the Rings of Akhaten, it would be imprinted with the memory of the day they signed it.
We’re not sure what the contest is going to be exactly, but it will probably require you to do something nice for a Whovian friend you admire. The winner will get the poster and the friend will get a prize.
We’re still working out the details.
Expect a post around noon EDT tomorrow. Don’t worry about seeing it then as it won’t close until the 8pm EDT broadcast of Doctor Who on BBC America.
“I was in New York and I was about to fly back, and then I got a phone call saying Ryan wanted to meet me and come over. So I read his film and I thought it was brilliant.
“And then I auditioned and we spent about four hours together doing some stuff, and he filmed it on his iPhone. And that was it. And now I’m going off to shoot it in a couple of weeks.

In a parallel universe where Matt Smith had turned left, Russell Tovey is the eleventh Doctor that could have been. The former Being Human star, seen last night in new ITV sitcom The Job Lot, has revealed that he auditioned for the role before Smith was cast.
Tovey, who previously featured as sailor Alonso Frame (pictured above) in Doctor Who Christmas special Voyage of the Damned, said he screen-tested for the part of the Time Lord after Russell T Davies suggested him as a replacement for David Tennant’s tenth Doctor.
We’ll be posting the more spoilery ones later behind a ‘Read More’ link.
