I went to the store for 1 thing. None of these are it.
I seriously have a new collection of magazines with “Doctor Who” covers. I’ve bought every one since coming to Wales, because that just doesn’t happen in America!! I always get excited and impulsive.

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill reveal what is in store when The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in A Town Called Mercy
A Town called Mercy is the first time the Doctor has “done” the Old West since 1966. That story, with William Hartnell as the Doctor, was called The Gunfighters, but its working title was The Gunslingers. This time round there’s just a single Gunslinger to contend with, but as he is seven feet tall and has a Gatling gun in place of his right arm, one is more than enough….
I think it’s really sad that we don’t have Confidential any more because the fans are fascinated with the making of Doctor Who and the personalities involved.
We will be doing lots of content that will be in smaller chunks on the site. It won’t be related to the Confidential brand because it was a BBC decision to let that go. But we have a team of people on set coming up with some really fun features.
“Doctor Who opened more doors than it closed. I was never bored, but I wanted to make sure I left before it became a job,” says David Tennant in this week’s Radio Times, discussing his time in the TARDIS. “I’m very glad it happened. Mercifully, I haven’t been typecast.”
The article isn’t online yet but you can buy it on something called a “newsstand”.
Billie & David & a Dalek
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.
“There will never be a better time to be a Doctor Who fan, I absolutely promise you that,” says showrunner Steven Moffat on the topic of the series’ forthcoming 50th anniversary in 2013.
When quizzed about Doctor Who’s return later in 2012, Moffat did his utmost to encourage fan speculation by saying that there would be “at least” 14 episodes (including the Christmas special) in series seven.
