The One-th Hour!

Radio Free Skaro report that Matt Smith's debut episode will be... an hour long! Exciting news! Also, they managed to get the supposed press release early, sparking some mega speculation...

A new era of Doctor Who begins in Spring 2010. This latest series of the BBC’s flagship drama programme sees Matt Smith’s debut as the new, Eleventh incarnation of the famous Time Lord alongside a new travelling companion, the enigmatic Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

Together they explore 16th century Venice, France during the 1890s and the United Kingdom in the far future, now an entire nation floating in space.

As always, wherever the Doctor goes, his oldest enemies are never far behind – the Daleks are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s. But they are not the only strange creatures the Doctor and Amy must face – there are also alien vampires. humanoid reptiles, old enemies such as the Weeping Angels, a Star Whale, and a silent menace that follows Amy and the Doctor around wherever they go…

In other news...
Goodness Gracious Me and EastEnders star, Nina Wadia, has landed a role in the upcoming series as a villain! Her old co-star Meera Syal also got a part some time ago.

Cold Blood!

It's official! The Silurians are back!

Actress Neve McIntosh has let slip that the lizard-esque monsters seen in the Doctor Who Series 5 trailer are, as suspected, classic series enemies The Silurians.

McIntosh will appear in episodes eight and nine of the fifth series in a two-part story written by Chris Chibnall. Part one is thought to be called The Ground Beneath Their Feet with the conclusion entitled Cold Blood.

In an interview with Perthshire Advertiser, she said, “The stories have got a bit darker. I play twins, and they’re big lizardwarrior women. They’re one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed.”

Of course, these match up with the Set Pictures:

Steven Moffat claims that Matt and Karen are a "perfect fit" for Doctor, says Digital Spy.

"All credit to Andy Pryor, everyone we saw for the role of Amy was terrific. Genuinely, every single one of them. There wasn't a single bad audition, they were all brilliant."
