Doctor Who – What do you think so far?

Posted by LiveFor on April 11, 2010

We are now two episodes in to Matt Smith’s run as the Doctor and Steven Moffat behind the scenes.

So far I have been impressed with Smith. He is more like a mad professor and the character’s scary intelligence comes across more than it did with Tennant.

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond is also a great actress and could well be a classic Companion.

Story wise the bad guys have been a bit week though, but early days. However, there does appear to be a bit of an increase in the budget or at least with what they are doing with it.

That’s all from me. Now over to you. What do you think of the show so far?

Discuss in the comments below.

Here is the trailer for next weeks episode.

Wouldn’t it be great if they could cross it over with the Empty Child episodes from Christopher Eccleston’s turn as the Doctor.

Doctor Who – Description of the New TARDIS’ interior

Posted by LiveFor on March 12, 2010

At the recent regeneration of Tennant’s Doctor to Matt Smith, the TARDIS got blasted. We’ve known it was going to get a new look and now we get a description of it.

First of all it will be bigger and is probably three times the size of David Tennant’s. There are multiple levels, joined by staircases. And the Telegraph adds:

Less grubby than its predecessor, with a transparent plastic floor on the main level, its walls are resplendent with polished copper and its central column features a blown glass decoration that could be straight from Tales of the Unexpected. There are old car seats and downstairs – downstairs! – a swing. With a nod to Paul McGann’s Tardis, the central column features an old TV screen on an extendable trellis. It also has a 1980s-style computer keyboard, and a His-Master’s-Voice style trumpet speaker. Viewers won’t see this Tardis until the end of episode one, when the Doctor and Amy walk in for their first journey together.

Viewers won’t see this Tardis until the end of episode one, which will be 60 minutes, when the Doctor and Amy walk in for their first journey together.

The sonic screwdriver is also due a makeover as it gets blasted in the first episode.

Matt Smith asks, ‘Have you seen the new sonic screwdriver yet?’ and pulls it from his pocket. It’s a very shiny metal toy with a green light and, when Smith flicks his hand, metal claws that pop out at one end.

I’m made up they are expanding the interior of the TARDIS. I remember years ago you saw courtyards and corridors within in it and would love to see an episode set inside it.

Retreat – David Tennant, Thandie Newton and Jason Isaacs in Dead Calm type of film

Posted by LiveFor on February 22, 2010

Magnet Films’ psychological thriller Retreat sounds like it could, hopefully, be very good.

According to Screen Daily, the film, to be directed by newcomer Carl Tibbetts, follows a couple (played by Newton and Isaacs) who are seeking to rebuild their relationship by taking time out on a remote island but their peace is shattered when they find a man in military uniform (Tennant) half-dead on their doorstep who tells them there is a lethal virus killing millions on the mainland.

Magnet Films producer Gary Sinyor said: “It reminded me of Dead Calm when I first read it. Only better. It’s got a similar sexual tension but the battle of wits between the characters and plot twists are constantly surprising. We’re delighted to have secured three of the UK’s most powerful actors.”

Therefore, I suggest that Billy Zane should also star as we all know he is a cool dude (can someone get me a photo of Billy Zane holding a card saying Liveforfilms.com?)

Shooting it due to start filming this May in Canada.

Burke and Hare loses a Time Lord but gets a Gollum

Posted by LiveFor on January 21, 2010

A bit of a switcheroo in casting for the upcoming John Landis horror comedy Burke & Hare.

Simon Pegg has confirmed on his Twitter that outgoing “Doctor Who” star David Tennant has been replaced by BAFTA nominated Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll).

Pegg and Tennant were set to play the titular characters in the story of 19th-century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing dead bodies for an Edinburgh medical school.

There has been no official announcement or a reason for Tennant’s department, but it is probably due to problems with schedules. Tennant stars in the NBC pilot “Rex Is Not Your Lawyer” which was originally to premiere in the Fall but may be moved due to all the Leno / Conan shenanigans going on recently.

Regarding his BAFTA nomination for portraying Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll 45-year-old Andy Serkis said in a statement that he was “just totally blown away!”

He said: “The whole experience of making this film with such amazingly talented, articulate, honest people has been a joy, and to get this nomination is not only a great thrill for all of us involved, but a fitting a tribute at a time that we mark the 10 year anniversary of the passing of the magnificent man himself, the unique Ian Dury.”

Do you think Serkis is a better choice than Tennant?

Doctor Who – David Tennant’s last episode. What did you think?

Posted by LiveFor on January 1, 2010


Well it is over and what a journey it was. I won’t go into any detail, but it was emotional and Tennant’s last line was perfect. He will be missed.

What did you think of the episode? Favourite part? Worst part? Best cameo and what did you think of the brief time we had with Matt Smith’s Doctor?

Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Alonsey!
