A tribe of Silurians will appear in the next series of Doctor Who.

Patty(TINH) reports that fans of the programme urged new showrunner Steven Moffat to bring back the lizard creatures.

The Silurians were first seen trying to spread a virus in 1970, but their last appearance was in 1984 when they built their own nuclear weapons.

Neve McIntosh, who has been cast as twin monsters, revealed that she is watching old episodes to try to understand the creatures.

Speaking about the new Silurians, she explained: "They're one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed."

James Corden has landed a role in Doctor Who, according to tabloid reports.

The Sun says that the Gavin & Stacey star was spotted on a train learning lines for the show while en route to the set in Cardiff.

A show insider is quoted as saying: "We normally keep our guest stars under wraps but you can't hide a bloke like James.

"And now he's not coming to Wales for Gavin & Stacey anymore, it's pretty obvious why he is here. James loves coming to Wales. And it gives him a chance to meet up with Ruth Jones, who co-wrote Gavin and Stacey with him and starred as Nessa."

The source added: "We're just delighted to have James on board. He is a great actor and he'll be a perfect fit for the new Doctor Who."

This morning, show officials refused to confirm or deny the story, telling Patty(TINH): "We do not comment on casting or storyline speculation."

Cant stand either of 'em 'James Boredom and Matt Yawn' :thumbdown:

The only thing Cordens done that was good imo was the sketch he did with the England squad, i think it was for Comic relief :hmm:

Doctor Who attempted to overthrow Thatcher


Sylvester McCoy in shock subversion claim


By Lester Haines • Register




Former Time Lord Sylvester McCoy has sensationally claimed that during his tenancy of the Tardis he and left-wing scriptwriters attempted to otherthrow the government of Margaret Thatcher.

Sylvester McCoy as Doctor Who. Pic: BBCAccording to the Sunday Times, both McCoy (pictured) and script editor Andrew Cartmel admitted the sinister scheme, which was hatched when the former filled the Doctor's shoes three months after Thatcher's 1987 third election victory.

McCoy recounted: “The idea of bringing politics into Doctor Who was deliberate, but we had to do it very quietly and certainly didn’t shout about it.

"We were a group of politically motivated people and it seemed the right thing to do. Our feeling was that Margaret Thatcher was far more terrifying than any monster the Doctor had encountered."

Cartmel recalled his reponse to Who producer John Nathan-Turner, who asked him what he hoped to achieve as script editor. He said: "My exact words were: I'd like to overthrow the government. I was a young firebrand and I wanted to answer honestly. I was very angry about the social injustice in Britain under Thatcher and I'm delighted that came into the show."

Cartmel's team of writing malconents included Ben Aaronovitch, son of Marxist intellectual Sam Aaronovitch, and Rona Munro, later to become a scriptwriter for filmmaker Ken Loach.

Sheila Hancock as Helen AThis nucleus of agitators, backed by the Who crew who "weren't very happy" with Maggie, set about undermining the Iron Lady with 1988 three-parter The Happiness Patrol, in which Sheila Hancock plays Thatcher caricature Helen A (see pic), "a dictator who requires her subjects to be happy... or die".

They backed this body-blow with further subversion, including kids spin-off book Turlough and the Earthlink Dilemma, which has a character called Rehctaht - Thatcher spelt backwards.

Sadly, Cartmel admitted the satire went completely unnoticed. He said: "Critics, media pundits and politicians certainly didn't pick up on what we were doing. If we had generated controversy and become a cause célèbre we would have got a few more viewers but, sadly, nobody really noticed or cared."

An ailing Doctor Who was canned in 1989, while Margaret Thatcher survived until she was dethroned as PM in 1990.

Regarding the alleged plot to bring down Thatcher, a BBC spokesman said: “We’re baffled by these claims. The BBC’s impartiality rules applied just as strongly then as they do to programmes now.”

I bet Maggie was quaking in her boots :rolleyes:

Can't be as good as the Spitting Image team's portrayal anyway :fonz:

He was better than I expected, but there's plenty of time to grow into the role... a good start though.

I'm really enjoying the new series, Matt Smith has already surpassed my expectations and is looking an absolutely inspired choice for the new Doctor.

Amy Pond isn't bad either... :drool:

Lady Gaga is reportedly being lined up to star in Doctor Who.

According to the Daily Star, the BBC wants to sign up the singer, 24, to play a villain in the series.

Scriptwriter Gareth Roberts said: "The script might end up on screen one day with Lady GaGa, who will have fallen on hard times."

A source added: "She is no stranger to dressing up and would be more than a match for the Doctor. It would be a great coup to get her."

Lady GaGa recently ordered ghostbusters to get rid of 'evil spirits' on tour.

Matt Smith has revealed that he is hoping ex-footballer Eric Cantona will guest star in the next series of Doctor Who.

The 27-year-old actor, who plays the 11th incarnation of The Doctor, has already suggested the idea to head writer Steven Moffat.

He told TV Times: "I'd like Eric to do one and I've mentioned it to Steven Moffat. Eric's got to be bad!"


------------------------------------------------------------------------

that would be awesome, As for the new Doctor, thinks he miles better than the last 2. I've enjoyed this series immensely. Tennant was far too serious far too much

The BBC has teased viewers about the plot of Steven Moffat's upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special.

Controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson revealed that the episode, which guest stars Michael Gambon and Katherine Jenkins, will be based on Charles Dickens's 1843 novel A Christmas Carol.

Stephenson said: "Matt Smith and Karen Gillan captivated audiences in their debut series and Doctor Who's clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol will thrill BBC One viewers this year with special guest stars Sir Michael Gambon and singing sensation Katherine Jenkins joining Amy and the Doctor for an unforgettable present!"

Dickens appeared as a character in the Series One episode 'The Unquiet Dead' in 2005, with Simon Callow playing the Victorian author.

Writer and executive producer Steven Moffat also revealed that the episode will include a "honeymoon" and be like "all your favourite Christmas movies at once".

Speaking on her first day on set, Jenkins said: "I'm over the moon to be involved in the Doctor Who Christmas special.

"I can't quite believe it as it's a part of the family tradition at the Jenkins household. I heard the news that I got the role on my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday present ever!"

Filming will continue until August. It has been suggested that the working title for the episode is 'Father Who?'.

Doctor Who's Elisabeth Sladen dies aged 63

Doctor Who star Elisabeth Sladen, who was also in spin-off series The Sarah Jane Adventures, has died aged 63.

Sladen appeared as Doctor Who assistant Sarah Jane Smith in the BBC television sci-fi series between 1973 and 1976 opposite Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker.

In more recent times the Liverpool-born actress had appeared in four series of The Sarah Jane Adventures on children's channel CBBC.

Sladen, who had a daughter, had been battling cancer for some time.

Sladen first appeared as Sarah Jane alongside the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, and stayed for three-and-a-half seasons, also working with the fourth Doctor, Tom Baker.

Her character, a journalist, was renowned for being inquisitive and stronger than some of the Doctor's other assistants.

Very sad. :(
