Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

I hope you're right, especially if my local Comcast adds BBC America HD to their lineup, as promised.

SyFy is still showing previous seasons of Dr. W, but I realize that would be on a different contract.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

It would be nice if SyFy would make some kind of a deal with BBC Amer. But they aren't "sister" stations, so I know that's unrealistic.

Here's the new Doctor and companion in costume, caught on a location shoot:

Is this from the last Tennant Special when he changes? Or from the first Matt Smith Season? is Matt Smith getting a full 13 eps? When is the Matt Smith Season supposed to air?

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

In the UK, not till 2010 (probably springtime).

In the US, no idea.

The three remaining Tennant specials will air November to December in the UK.

BBC America just played The NExt Dr a couple of weeks ago, and playing Planet of the Dead this coming Sunday, so I imagine BBC America will probably show the last Tennant specials by March/April

But, what is that pic from? Is it just a Promo, or is it on the set? If on the Set, is from the last Tennant special, introducing us to Matt Smith, or are they already filming his episodes?

pretty sure it's a set picture from production of the full fat series.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

The 2010 Matt Smith season is being shot as we type in Wales. The UK press are full of long-lense aquired spoilers regarding guest stars. All speicals with Tennant in have finished filming (a while ago).

No idea if the Tennant specials will handle regenreation. Some rumors suggest they will not, leaving it open for the Beeb to have 2 Doctors on the go at once, possibly one of them in a film (tennant probably).

The sets of the Tardis (in and out) have been redesigned to look better in HD.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

Just saw PotD, and liked it, it was lots of fun. I wish Michelle Ryan was staying for a while...

I liked the Tritivores - the fly guys. I wish they could have survived, but plot-wise, I think that would have been difficult. The Doctor could hardly have brought them through the portal to earth.

I should get BBC America in HD in October, so I hope it gets replayed then.

I enjoyed it too, in fact it was better than I was expecting it to be. The storyline premise "Bunch of people trapped on a bus in a dessert" did seem all that exciting, but, even those parts had their edge

I also liked Michelle Ryan alot, her character was very fun, and I liked the chemistry they had together (though who knows if her stage prescence might outshine Matt Smith?)

I'd definitely like to see the Tritivores more.
