Doctor Who comic says goodbye to the Tenth :|

IDW Publishing’s Dr Who title will bid farewell to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor, reports MTV News. The character has continued to star in the series following his death in the New Year’s Day television special.

‘Final Sacrifice’ will be the final outing for Tennant’s Doctor – a four-issue arc that will not tie directly into ‘The End of Time’.

“We were told from the very beginning that ‘The Waters Of Mars’ would lead straight into the regeneration ending,” said series writer Tony Lee. “So we set up the whole season arc to end directly before ‘The Waters Of Mars’, which worked really well as the mindset The Doctor is in during the start of that episode matches the mindset he has at the end of the series of comics. We decided that we needed to have a solid end, something that would weaken The Doctor, that would push him towards the final song. And then, of course, we saw that between ‘The Waters Of Mars’ and ‘The End Of Time’, The Doctor went off and had a load of adventures, which meant that this wasn’t right before the regeneration. But, we had tied it so nicely into ‘Waters Of Mars’, we decided to keep it that way.

“So although it’s the final Tenth Doctor comic, it’s not going to be a ‘regeneration prequel’. But we do perform some amazing timey-wimey endings and pretty much do a similar farewell end scene.”

A series starring Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor is planned for 2011. ‘Final Sacrifice’ will begin in July with Doctor Who #13.

Since my internet refuses to cooperate and doesn’t let me watch “The 11th hour” I’ve been having fun on youtube. Lots of people (especially outside the UK) missed this mini episode, even though it is 2,5 years old but it is so cute and funny I have to share it

Doctor Who!

What would be a better way to start a geek tv blog other than honouring it with the longest running series in the history of TV, “Dr. Who“?

I must admit I’m a newcomer. I only started watching about one week ago but I watched all four (2005) seasons and specials. I started looking for the 1963 episodes to rent now and should I succeed I will watch it over my Easter Holidays!

But……. on Saturday we’re getting the very first episode of the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith! Not only do we get a new Doctor but we get a brand new T.A.R.D.I.S. as well! I really liked this new design, although the Coral T.A.R.D.I.S. had a great steampunk feel too 🙂

Based on the promo pictures, I had my doubts about Matt Smith but seeing him for a few moments in “The End of Time pt2” was enough to lift a huge weight off my shoulders! I know not everyone agrees that Tennant was the best Doctor ever and I can’t claim that either since I haven’t watched the old show yet. However, I think David Tennant was brilliant! I loved his maniac attitude and the sense of humour as much as I loved his converse that usually clashed greatly with his suit (brown or blue!). Anyway, that said I am REALLY looking forward to “The Eleventh Hour” and the 11th Doctor’s debut and hope he will fit in the Doctor’s shoes.
