More SJA Series 3 news!

The Sarah Jane Adventures Series 3 is due to start in October, which is almost a month later than when the previous two series' aired. Digital Spy recently reported Thursday October the 15th as the possible start date, but no one belived it!

And Sarah-Jane.TV are reporting that the cousins of
the Slitheen, the Blathereen, are orange! They have a picture as well! But it does look like it could just be a Slitheen in Orange lighting though. We shall see. See it here.



Eve Myles in 'Framed' at 8.30pm, tonight on BBC1

Not very 'Who releated but just a reminder to tune in and watch Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) star as Angharad, a local welsh school teacher in new Drama 'Framed', tonight at 8.30pm on BBC1. It is a screen adaption of the award winning novel by Frank Cottrell Boyce. The running time is 90 minutes.

Eve said: "Angharad is quite different to Gwen, as she's quieter, and more thoughtful. She's not soft, she's feisty, but a lot more complicated. She's quite nosy, but only because she's lived there for such a long time, and nothing much happens.

I have read the book myself and it is one of my all time favourites. Below is a synopsis.

Set almost entirely in Wales, Framed tells the story of 10-year-old Dylan Hughes and his family's struggle to keep their small petrol station, which sits at the foot of a mountain in North Wales, afloat.

Manod village is a rain-soaked community where hope is thin on the ground, and money even thinner. When Dylan's dad suddenly leaves home, things get even tougher for him, his sisters Minnie and Marie, baby brother Max, and his mother.

Da's departure however, coincides with the secretive arrival of a convoy of men and trucks, who take residence on top of the mountain. The villagers discover that the National Gallery in London has been flooded, and the priceless paintings sent by the lorry load to Wales for safe storage in the bowels of the old slate mine inside Manod mountain (as they were back in the Second World War).

In charge of this is Lester, an intelligent but uptight art curator who prefers paintings to people. That is, until a funny and pivotal misunderstanding leads him to invite Dylan to view the paintings inside the mountain. What ensues is good news for both Lester and the rather depressed town of Manod.

Manod develops an interest in art and Lester develops an interest in Manod, in the form of the lovely Angharad, the local school teacher. Through the transformative power of art, Manod starts to transform itself, beginning with the service station, where Mam and the children revive the flagging fortunes of the petrol station by broadening the services they offer into catering and a coffee bar.

However, despite everybody's best efforts, the petrol station faces closure when the family fail to generate enough cash to keep it going. Could an audacious art theft solve their problems?

Please do watch this. You won't be dissapointed, I'm sure.

BBC Announce new Tenth Doctor Audio!

BBC Audiobooks have now officially released the synopsis released for a new, upcoming Doctor Who Audio CD entitled The Day of the Troll. It is expected to be released on 8th October, and retail at an RRP of £9.99. The cover has not yet been revealed, but as soon as it is, we will have it for you. You can view the synopsis here:

The story follows the Doctor as he arrives on Earth in the far future. He is horrified to find the planet beset by famine and starvation, and England as a barren wasteland. Scientists are desperately seeding the ground to make the crops grow again, but now it seems that something even worse is happening... Karl Baring, the owner of research facility The Grange, has been snatched away in the middle of the night. His sister Katy was with him when he vanished, but is now in catatonic shock - so it's up to the Doctor, with the help of the scientists at The Grange, to investigate. What is lurking under the old bridge, and why is it preying on people? The Doctor must find out, or else it might strike again.

Sounds great! I'll buy it!

Dalek: "Would you care for some tea?" Audio recording

Not only has Alun. Vega caught us the first recording of the Eleventh Doctor, but also an audio of a Dalek saying "Would you care for some tea?" as well from filming.

Listen to it here.

Here are some of his very interesting spoilers and theories.

As far as I can tell, the story so far is that Bill Patersons character is some kind of Professor, a boffin working for Churchill during WW2. He believes hes invented the Daleks as a new super-weapon, though hes a bit fuzzy on how the idea came to him. The Daleks are stringing the Professor along, playing docile and very British.

Dalek: Would you care for some tea?

Churchill doesn't care where the Professor's "ironclads" came from, only that they have the potential to defeat the Nazis and win the war.

Churchill: Death to our enemies, Death to the 3rd Reich!
The Doctor: Yes, yes, and death to everyone else too.

The Doctor is trying to convince the Professor and Churchill not to unleash the Daleks, but they're not taking him seriously (possibly because he seems implausibly young?) hence his growing frustration and anger, as he turns on the playing-it-innocent Daleks:

The Doctor: I sent you back into the void. I saved the whole of reality from you. I am the Doctor, and you are the DALEKS!

My reading of this line is, he seems not only to be trying to convince Churchill and the Professor of the Daleks true nature, but also reminding himself of who he is: the Doctor!

The Professor (Bill Paterson) seems to warm to Amy, as they're both Scottish. I believe the Professor says: "Are you from the Islands?" Very sweet.

Amy Pond is definitely 100% Scottish. She has a soft accent, so her voice didn't carry far, making it hard to hear anything she said.

We glimpsed someone looking very Churchillian from the side, yesterday lunchtime, but didn't recognise the actor.

Remember it won't all be true. But it is plausible.



Doctor Who - Greatest Moments: The Enemies trailer

Trailer for the third and last programme in the special documentary series about the greatest moments since the revival back in 2005. This week's focuses on the enemies. Thursday, 8pm BBC3.



Hear The Eleventh Doctor speak and confirm Daleks!

Hear Matt Smith speak as The Doctor Here! Alun.Vega audio recorded this at the scene in Jacobs Antiques Center, Cardiff, August 28 2009.

Alun- I wasn't bugging them! I was simply standing in the stairwell above where they were recording. There is a open (caged) lift shaft - seen in Love & Monsters - and the sound carried upwards when the actors shouted, as Matt did here.

The Doctor (Matt Smith) says: "I send you back into the void. I saved the whole of reality from you. I am the Doctor, and you are the DALEKS!"
Lots of thanks to Alun.Vega

Doctor Who - Greatest Moments: The Companions. Hot or Not?

Doctor Who - Greatest moments: The Companions, aired last night. It was more of the same really. There was no new information, just lots of clips and the odd interview. Next thursday is Doctor Who - Greatest Moments: The Enemies at 8pm on BBC3. Though Christopher Eccleston did get more screentime.

Missed it? Catch it here as always-








Today's Series One/Five Filming Update

At today's filming, the trailers are reportedly labeled, The Doctor, Amy, Enemy No 2, Voice of Enemy, andChurchill! They used the word Enemy before to refer to Daleks, who it probably is again afterwhat was seen yesterday! From this we can also that there is an Enemy number 1 at least, so multiple Daleks? And the voice of the Daleks is Nicholas Briggs as always. And Churchill! As this is obviously a WWII story that is very likley but could it just be a code name for somebody else? We shall see!



Yesterday's Series One/Five Filming Round Up

Here's a round up of yesterday's filming on top of the Glamorgan Building at Cardiff University. So far, we have seen Matt Smith and Karen Gillian, four World War II soldierswith a general in a blue uniform, and the Dalek. We can almost confirm it is a Dalek after these two photos-

The first picture is the key to the Dalek rumour. The man on the right is Barnaby Edwards. The main Dalek operator. The second one is of a the supposed Dalek next to a which shows that it is the same height as a Dalek. If this is not proof, then I don't know what is.

The Daleks are back!

This picture almost confirms it. THE DALEKS are back in Matt Smith's new series!

Here is a photograph of a Dalek from todays filming on top of the Glamorgan Building at Cardiff University. You can't see much, but people did see it moving and get a better glimpse! And it has been confirmed its the same style Dalek head as the RTD era Daleks!
Thanks to Dalek Supreme and Combom for that.

Though remember, this could be a red Herring from the 'Who crew...

More filming pictures soon!

SJA Series 2 information released!

Back after a day away. Lot's of posts now! First things first-

2Entertain today released information regarding their upcoming release of The Sarah Jane Adventures series two on DVD, including the cover for the boxset. It will contain a total of three discs which will feature all twelve episodes of the series and special features. It shall an approximate running time of three hundred and thirty seven minutes. The cover for the DVD is above it's official promotional synopsis below;

Life on Earth can be an adventure too! Get ready for more danger, mystery and wonder as incomparable Sarah Jane Smith returns for a second series of the spectacular, thrilling children's drama from the makers of Doctor Who and Torchwood! When Sarah's adopted son, Luke, first became part of Sarah Jane's life, he encountered a world of adventure - not just of dangerous aliens bent on invasion and destruction, but also an amazing world of wonder and excitement which showed him that the universe really is an amazing place. This is something that Sarah Jane is keen to keep from Bannerman Road, and Series Two's newest addition, fourteen-year-old Rani Chandra and her parents Gita and Haresh. But sparky Rani is a wannabe journalist and, like Sarah Jane, is not the type to let a mystery go unsolved!

Series 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures is scheduled for release on the November 9th and will be on sale at an RRP of £19.99. The bonus features on the box set will be interviews with the cast and crew, story synopsis', a gadget glossary, a quiz with special prizes, character profiles, a photo gallery, audio clips, UK TV spots, and trailers.

The release date of the set has come under fire by many people who are not happy that it is being released over a year after it first aired. But will you be buying it? I know I will. Although the picture of Liz Sladen is rather unflattering.

RTD drops lots of hints!

In two new video's, Russel T. Davies drops hints about the hand that picked up the Master' ring in The Last of the Timelords (3.13).

"Who says that she picked up that ring?" (Referring to Lucy Saxon)
"It looked older than Lucy Saxon's hand I would say, if you study that hand"
"We'll see more of that hand"
"It's not quite as simple as it sounds"

So it looks like the mysteries surrounding the ring shall not be mysteries for much longer. Though he did also say that the actual hand was producer Tracy Simpson.

He also said that John (Barrowman) and Eve (Myles) are dying to do a fourth series of Torchwood but it would be well into the new year before anything started happening. He said he would also come back and do it as well.

So the future looks bright!

The videos are here:
