Interviews and Exclusives

Lots to get through!


Tommy and Danny were on CBBC all day yesterday, answering questions and talking about the new series:

Nigel Havers was on The Alan Titchmarsh Show, promoting SJA:

Elisabeth Sladen was on The Wright Stuff this morning:

David Tennant was on This Morning... this morning: (with Waters of Mars clips! - and also confirming that Waters of Mars is on the 15th November!)


The BBC released the synopses for The Gift; the Sarah Jane Adventures finale!

Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde and Rani face an old enemy, the green Slitheen, in the penultimate episode of this series of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

When the Slitheen's latest scheme is halted, their rivals, the Blathereen, arrive. Declaring peace between the planets, they offer Sarah Jane a gift – one that might change the future of the human race forever.

When the Blathereens' gift runs riot, Sarah Jane faces the battle of her life to save her son, Luke, as The Sarah Jane Adventures concludes.

With Clyde, Rani and K9 trapped in a school under siege, and the whole of London convulsing under the alien threat, everything heads for a final showdown in the attic – and not everyone is getting out alive.

Rumour has it that


will be the one who is killed off at the end of Series Three!

Also, Digital Spy report on 10 teasers for Waters of Mars :

It's completely different from 'Planet Of The Dead', with a real sense of the foreboding about it and some hitherto-unseen sides of The Doctor revealed. Without further ado, here's ten teasers:

1. The first line of the episode: "Hello mum. Susie says hello!" Do not underestimate its relevance!

2. The Doctor (and TARDIS) land on Mars on November 21, 2059. There he happens upon Bowie Base One, the first human colony on the red planet.

3. Heading up the base is Captain Adelaide Brooke (Lindsay Duncan), recognised by The Doctor as the pioneer of humanity's colonisation of space. "The woman with starlight in her soul," he calls her.

4. Odd-Doctor behaviour part one: The Doctor instantly realises he needs to leave. "Whatever has started here, I can't see it to the end," he tells them. "I can't."

5. ... but he doesn't leave, because before too long the dreaded 'water' starts to play a part. We won't spoil exactly how it plays a part, but the previously-released preview clip offers a strong hint.

6. There are references to two season four stories, as well as the recent Easter special. There's even a (new) flashback scene to one of the aforementioned.

7. "It's taken me all these years to realise *** **** ** **** *** **** - and they **** **** **."

8. An Ood makes an appearance. Last word is key. (Ood Sigma!)

9. Did you know, the human body is 60% water?

10. Odd-Doctor behaviour part two: Towards the very end of the episode, there's a scene that sees The Doctor say things that will utterly shock you. And more than that, the way he says things will shock you too.

And, to top it all off, they gave us a sneaky peek at the episode in the form of PICTURES. Dazzle your eyes over these!

I think that the Doctor's family are going to be in the End of Time Christmas specials, so "Hello mum, Susie says hello!" is referring to Susan, otherwise know as the doctors grand-daughter! Maybe I'm completely wrong. My idea is that it's the doctor talking to his mum, a short-of flashback to before the Time War. This is all too far-fetched isn't it?

K-9? Noooooo!

Cosette said...

Noooooooooo! K-9!
Well, maybe they'll make this for the K-9 show.
Or, they could make a NEW BETTER one!
*gasps* When they refer to Susie, do they mean...SUZIE???
Wouldn't it make sense if the episode is run on the 21st instead of the 8th?
The woman with starlight on her soul....ASTRID!?
Yay! Ood Sigma goes mad!!!!
I thought water was 75%!
When the doctor says these STRANGE they mean barking at the water,saying "Knock four times! I don't hear them!" and then there will be 4 knocks.

The mum-Susie quote is pure fanbait. No way will it actually mean what the fans want it to mean.

As so often with the RTD era, the imaginary show we are watching in our heads right now. as we speculate on the next show coming, is so much better than the actual one we'll be presented with in a couple of weeks.

I think maybe Adelaide is the Doctor's great great granddaughter maybe? And her granddaughter's called Susie. LOL

Cause I reckon if Susan stayed behind with that human fella if they had kids their kid's kids would be 1/4 Gallifreyan which might be why Adelaide's so clever and is said to have "starlight in her soul."

What a coup that'd be. LOL
The Doctor's human family.

Nah. RTD wouldn't do that.
