Sophie gets us ready for the upcoming return of Doctor Who to our screens and lets us know what we will can expect in preparation for March 30th
So who is excited about Doctor Who returning to our screens on March 30th? I didn’t think I was the only one and not only because it’s my 21st birthday (I personally take it as a sign from the Doctor) but because these past three months have lacked the show’s spark and we need our Whovian fix!
Since part one of series 7 finished last year, we have been teased with 2012’s Christmas special The Snowmen which introduced Clara ‘Oswin’ Oswald in more detail and let’s face it, the sweet faced, ballsy brunette is filling her companion boots fantastically. The Doctor may have met his match with this one.
This year is the shows 50th anniversary, so with such a huge milestone, fans are expecting fantastic things and an immersive storyline to boot. By the sounds of things, we are going to get just that.
Starting with The Bells of St John, the Doctor and Clara find themselves faced with a new enemy called the Spoonheads in various iconic London backdrops. This thrilling new adventure plays on something closer to home and this time it’s in the Wi-Fi.
Stephen Moffat, who is the lead writer and executive producer of Doctor Who, has promised new Cybermen, Ice Warriors, undersea adventures and the reveal of the Doctor’s greatest secret. If that doesn’t send your Tardis into a flurry, I don’t know what will.
With a guest list the size of a very, very long arm, the wrap up of season seven is set to be the most exciting we have watched and with the anniversary right in front of us, who knows who just might make an appearance?
This will be Matt Smith’s third series as the Doctor and the fate of our favourite time traveller has kept us on our feet since the beginning. Smith has promised his fans that the Tardis will remain his home until at least Christmas 2013 and with the Doctor’s life hanging in the balance during series six; it makes us wonder if he’ll indeed be the last regeneration.
Now personally, when David Tennant said he was leaving, I refused to believe anyone could take his place and make the character shine like Mr Tennant could but, as soon as Matt Smith appeared on our screens in a burst of orange light I couldn’t deny he had charisma and I was hooked.
Trying to see through the tears after the famous “I don’t want to go” scene, witnessing this younger man whizzing around the Tardis was fantastic. Since the Eleventh Hour in 2010, Matt Smith has had me laughing, crying and smiling until my cheeks hurt so I hope that he sticks around. A man that can do all of that whilst making a fez and a bowtie look cool has a place on our screens!
Don’t forget to tune into BBC one on March 30th to see the Doctor and his companion do what they do best…run!
