One Week Away from Doctor Who!

Eeek! We're now a week away from the premiere of Doctor Who's second half of season 7! We've already been given the heads up on the return of classic-Who monsters, the Ice Warriors, but what else is in store? To be honest, I don't know where to start because I'm too busy wetting my pants and gawking at the new design of the Cybermen! While we wait, if you haven't seen it already because you're like me and living under a rock, watch the teaser trailer now! Also, please take notice that I am making a HUGE effort not to complain about the opening titles from the Christmas episode, the new TARDIS console and the Doctor's apparently new purple jacket. I won't. I can't. I'm likely to rage and leave nearby villages in absolute ruin. In the meantime, enjoy! And as an added bonus, here are four Doctor Who movie-posters the BBC released for the upcoming episodes!

Doctor Who: P.S. – An Amy and Rory Epilogue

Some of us are still reeling from the kinda confusing conclusion to Amy and Rory's depressing departure from Doctor Who. I know I still am. But the one question that immediately went to my mind (as well as the majority of fans') during the last episode was: what about Rory's dad, Brian? Well, seems there WAS a scene in the script to conclude Brian's story but, unfortunately, it was never shot! Thankfully, the BBC has decided to release the scene (written by Chris Chibnall, creator of Brian) in storyboard form. They even brought Arthur Darvill back to voice Rory! Grab your Centurion Rory plushies (or this one) and squeeze 'em tight, nerds! This scene is a tear-jerker!

Geronimo! Doctor Who is Back Tomorrow

FINALLY! Tomorrow night, season 7 of Doctor Who premieres and we're all sitting on the edge of our seats here at #nj's virtual HQ, just itching to say, "Hello, sweetie!" again to our TV screens! In time for tomorrow's premiere, Nerdist's All Star Celebrity Bowling episode went live on their YouTube page today, featuring the Nerdist team vs the Doctor Who team! (No spoilers from me, give it a gander!) BBC America has also released special season 7 "movie posters" on the Doctor Who Facebook page to whet our appetites and make the wait all the more unbearable! Will you be watching? [Edit from Harvey] Even though Doctor Who Confidential is no longer with us, the BBC has produced a series of shorts (and that "short" description is no joke - these things are like a minute long) called "Pond Life" which are meant to tie in to the series and the manner in which the Doctor keeps up with the Joneses Ponds. Watch them all below! AND FINALLY, I'll leave you with an interview with Karen (Amy) and Arthur (Rory) discussing tomorrow's big episode! ALLONS-Y!

Thor Sequel May Have Landed Villain

Plenty of buzz surrounding the Thor sequel, skillfully titled Thor: The Dark World.

Seems the role of the villain - who turns out is Malekith the Accursed - may go to Doctor Who's own, 9! (For those not in the know: 9 is actor Christopher Eccleston, the ninth incarnation of the Doctor).

Though not finalized, I hear it's pretty much a done deal! Look for the Thor sequel in theaters late next year.

New Doctor Who Series 7 Launch Trailer!

Ohshitohshitohshitohshitohshitohshit.

I WON A BOOK FROM JOHN BARROWMAN!

For new-Whovians, you're bound to be familiar with John Barrowman's "pansexual" hunk from the 51st Century, Captain Jack Harkness. Despite mixed feelings for the immortal Doctor Who/Torchwood character, I've found that the multi-talented actor (who happens to be gay and married) and his sister, Carole, have quite a gift for writing! During this year's Comic-Con, John co-hosted Attack of the Show's 4-hour long coverage at the annual event where he interviewed many a star, artist, etc., including the current cast of Doctor Who and Castle star, Nathan Fillion (seen below). My point and how the two tie together? Simple. It started on Twitter when @aots announced that John would be co-hosting the 4-hour coverage later that day. I made a mess in my pants (I dork out for Barrowman, don't you bitches judge me), quickly quoted them and included a "WHAAAAAT?!?!?!" in my tweet. I honestly didn't expect them to reply to me (insert oohs, ahhs and gasps here because I know y'all are totally impressed; who wants to touch me?! below, left image). I was feeling neat and enjoying the hell out of my day, despite having changed my manties twice. A couple of hours later, though, I get the best surprise of all and ruined (permanently, this time) a third pair of manties. @aots mentions me yet again, only this time they've announced they'd selected me and two others as freaking winners of an autographed copy of John and Carole's book, Hollow Earth.

I lost my damn mind, I was texting Harvey like crazy and bouncing off my walls. I didn't even know the Barrowmans (Barrowmen? Barrowmany? -mani?) were working on a book series. I gave AOTS my information and about a week later, my package arrived.

 

Let me tell you, I inhaled Hollow Earth! And, as I'm always one who enjoys a good spoiler, I'm afraid I don't know how to be vague enough without giving the whole book's plot away. Needless to say, I loved it! Sure, the target audience is kids aged 8-12 but, really, isn't the Harry Potter series the same in the beginning? I took a day to read the whole thing and... wow! I can honestly say I can't wait to see this being turned into a movie and can't wait for more work from John and Carole! It certainly has its dark elements and it's quite clear at the end of the book that it isn't the end of the story. There's more to explore and I can't wait!

Pre-order your copy of Hollow Earth today! Seriously.

As for my love of John, it remains strong. And I realize this is probably the closest I'll ever be to him (unless someone out there wants to give me an acting job where I can then force my way into his pants onto a project he's in) so he's now up there with my love for Tom Hardy, which, if we all recall, burns with the white-hot intensity of a thousand burning suns. Consider yourself stalked, John. I'm already all over those alleged photos of your huge wiener in a burger and the other where you MAY be posing nude. (You didn't think I wouldn't perv this up just a little, did you?)
