Prisoner Zero?

So we have had outer-space rhinos, nasty feline nuns and now it looks like this mutt may be The Doc's latest enemy! This dog is supposedly a shape shifiting alien called Prisoner Zero that the Atraxi are after. The Atraxi are space police and if other rumours are to be belived our planet culd be at risk if he isnt returned to them!Im not quite sure how this dog fits in with the crack in the wall and other pictures of a woman and her children loking creepy like this man holding the Dog. This may not be the dog that is Prisoner zero as Matt Smith has been seen crouched down talking to something that isnt there when filming meaning that it could be CGI. Anyway enough speculation theres only 3 days left!

Another The Eleventh Hour Clip

The Guide: Magna Clamp

Use: Magnet
Appearances: DW: Army of Ghosts/Doomsday

Magna-Clamps were metal devices found by Torchwood 1. When attached to an object it cancels the objects mass enabling it to be easily lifted. They are capable of lifting two Imperial ton's even if only held in one hand. Magna-Clamps were not available for public use as Jackie found out after remarking it would help her with her shopping. They are activated by pressing a button on the handle.

1.Torchwood 1 found the Magna-Clamps buried in a crashed spaceship (possibly the Vinvocci spaceship that also held the Immortality Gate) at the foot of Mt. Snowdon.
2.During the Battle of Canary Wharf the Doctor and Rose Tyler used the Magna-Clamps to hold onto a wall when the Void was open. This stopped them from falling into the Void until Rose let go and almost fell in only for Pete Tyler to catch her.

The Radio Times Episode Guide!

1. The Eleventh Hour
Quote: “Who da man?”
Geronimo! A brand new Doctor crashing to Earth. New face, new body, new man. And he’s barely staggered out of the blue box, before he’s found himself in the middle of the Crisis That Just Won’t Stop! No time to rest and recover, no TARDIS, no screwdriver – just six billion human beings about to die and only one man to save them. But the new Doctor encounters more than danger – this is the day he meets Amy Pond. Can he persuade her to trust him, when he’s been letting her down all her life?

2. The Beast Below
Quote: “Nobody talk to me! Nobody human has anything to say to me today!”
The Doctor takes Amy to the far future, and Starship UK. The British people, adrift among the stars on a giant spaceship, in search of a new home. But there are secrets here, in the rusting corridors and clanging hallways. A masked figure, who knows the Doctor of old, begs his help, while Amy encounters the terrifying Smilers, and uncovers a secret so dreadful, no one can remember it…

3. Victory of the Daleks
Quote: “I wanted to know what their plan was. I was their plan!”
From the terrifying future of the United Kingdom to one of the darkest chapters of its past – World War Two. The Doctor and Amy find themselves in a top-secret cabinet war room deep beneath the London streets. And there, gliding among the nicotine walls and Bakelite telephones, the Daleks are hatching their deadliest scheme yet. Only one man can help the Doctor – who whose side is Winston Churchill on?

4 & 5. The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone
Quote: “Is River Song your wife?”
A two-part story. A crashed spaceship, a shattered temple and a terrifying climb through the maze of the dead – River Song is back in the Doctor’s life, and she’s brought more trouble than ever he can handle. The last of the Weeping Angels is loose in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis, and the Doctor is recruited to track it down. “Don’t blink!” everyone tells Amy – but as Amy is about to discover, not blinking might just be the worst thing you can do…

6. Vampires in Venice
Quote: “You know what’s dangerous about you? Not that you ask people to take risks, but that you make them want to impress you!”
In Venice, even danger is beautiful. The House of Calvierri has the whole city under its protection, but something is very wrong. There are blood-drained corpses in the street, something lurks in the canal, and the Calvierri girls are the loveliest in town, except when you glance in the mirror…

7. Amy’s Choice
Quote: “I know who you are. There’s only one person in the universe who hates me as much as you do.”
It’s been five long years since Amy travelled in the TARDIS with her mysterious Doctor – and when he shows up again, on the eve of the birth of her first child, danger is not far behind him. Amy is faced with a heartbreaking choice that will change her life forever.

8 & 9. TBA
Quote: “While you’ve been drilling down… something else has been drilling up.”
In 2015, the most ambitious drilling project in history is under way. Dr Nasreen Chaudhry and her team have reached 21 kilometres into the Earth’s crust – but something is stirring far below. Amy Pond discovers there’s nowhere to run when you can’t even trust the ground at your feet.

10. TBA
Quote: “Art can wait, this is life and death. We need to talk to Vincent van Gogh!”
Terror lurks in the cornfields of Provence, but only a sad and lonely painter can see it. Amy Pond finds herself shoulder to shoulder with Vincent van Gogh, in a battle with a deadly alien – saving the world has never been so ginger! But can even the Doctor save Vincent?

11. TBA
Quote: “All I have to do is pass as an ordinary human being. What could possibly go wrong?”
The Doctor faces his greatest challenge yet – a flat share! People are disappearing on Aickman Road, and the Doctor must solve the mystery of a staircase that people wak up – but never down.

12 & 13. TBA
Quote: “There was a goblin. Or a trickster, or a warrier. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it – one day it would just drop out of the sky, and tear down your world.”
A message on the oldest cliff-face in the universe, a puzzle box opening from the inside and a love that lasts thousands of years… The fates are drawing close around the TARDIS – is this the day the Doctor falls?

Meera Syal and Karen Gillan Interviews

Karen Gillan and Meera Syal have spoken to two news paper sites about the new series. Karen who plays Amy Pond spoke to The Sunday Times and Meera talked to The Guardian.

Karen told The Sunday times: “The show’s got so many fans who feel quite protective over it, so every time I pick up a script I’m like: “Oh my God, how am I going to do that?” Amy’s a human girl who’s experiencing the most mind-blowing alien things. There’s always a moment when you think: “This is going to take some serious acting to make it truthful. It feels incredibly normal to be on the TARDIS now, because we’re in there so much. Matt has worked out what every single little twiddly bit on the console does and explains it to me, although I can never remember!” Read more....

Meera told The Guardian: “I have been longing to be in Doctor Who,” she said. “I’ve been knocking on the TARDIS door for years and it has finally opened.” The actress will be playing a geologist in episodes 8 and 9, who is “drilling to the centre of the Earth. I play a woman in a man's world" she says. These episodes are supposed to feature the Silurians. Read more....

The Guide: Matron Cofelia #1

Name:Matron Cofelia
Also known as: Miss Foster
Race: Unknown
Home Era: 2000s
Appearances: DW: Partners in Crime
Actor: Sarah Lancashire
Cofelia traveled across the galaxy so find a planet with inhabitants that were overweight and as a result landed on the planet Earth.She disguised herself as a human  and took the name Miss Foster after foster mother meaning "a woman who is a foster parent and raises another's child" like she was doing for the Adiposian family. She set up Adipose Industries which produced a drug that claimed to attract Human fat cells and flush them but  in fact it attracted them and galvanised them into an Adipose body.  This was illegal as seeding a level 5 planet, such as Earth, was against Galactic Law and it was up to The Doctor and Donna to stop Cofelia from activating the Enducer thus speading up the Adipose birth process after she feared the Doctor would report her to the Shadow Proclamation.A Nursery Ship arrived and beamed the Adipose onboard but the First Family, who knew what they were doing was illegal, decided to rid themselves of their accomplice. After the Adipose were beamed up, the Doctor and Donna attempted to persuade Cofelia to get away when she was in the beam. But when she didn't believe them the beam switched off and she fell to her death.

1.In one timeline as seen in Turn Left, Adipose Industries operations moved to the United States. Whether Cofelia headed operations in this timeline remains unknown, though this is probable. In this timeline, the Adipose birth happened successfully at the cost of millions of Human lives
2.In early drafts of the script for Partners in Crime, Cofelia used the alias of "Miss Rattigan". The name Rattigan was later used as the surname for Luke Rattigan, who appeared in The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky. 
3.Cofelia possessed a sonic pen, which when capped, resembled a very sleek fountain pen. This was later captured and used by the Doctor, who then threw into a garbage bin.

The Eleventh Hour Preview 03/04/10

Here is the first in a series of info round ups which will have all new information about the eagerly anticipated new series.This time we take a look at the episode which will launch The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond onto our screens.

The Doctor - Matt Smith
Amy Pond - Karen Gillan
Rory Williams - Arthur Darvill
Young Amy - Caitlin Blackwood
Mrs Angelo - Annette Crosbie
Barney Collins - Marcello Magni
Coma Patient - Peter Moyes
TBA - Olivia Colman
TBA - Arthur Fox
TBA - David Tennant
TBA - Nina Wadia
TBA - Sir Patrick Moore
The Doctor has regenerated into a brand new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover. With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world - and only Amy Pond to help him. Written by Steven Moffat.

Info and Rumours:
1. According to Wikipedia  the monsters for this episode are The Atraxi who are a group of galactic policemen. Sounds rather like The Judoon but they were police for hire.
2.The Tenth Doctors Sonic Screwdriver will be destroyed when the new Doctor signals the Atraxi ship.
3.Amy is rumoured to be a orphan girl which would explain her wanting to go off with The Doctor through time and space!
4.The Tardis was last seen falling apart after The Tenth Doctor's regeneration so we will have a new Tardis interior to go with our new Doctor.
5.The episode is set in the fictional location of Leadworth.
6. Whilst filming Amy is seen dressed in a policewomans outfit.The Sun newspaper reported that Amy will be a kissogram, and that the police uniform is a costume as part of that job. Seems random but who knows?
7. A recently released clip from The Eleventh Hour shows the Doctor's first meeting with Amy in the 1990s, when she is a eight-year-old girl. The TARDIS crashes outside her house, and the Doctor says he will need to make a "five-minute jump into the future" in order to fix it. Amy asks if she can come, too, but he tells her to wait, saying that she can come along when he returns in five minutes. Presumably, he winds up in 2010 instead, meeting Amy as an adult.
8. The episode may have a runtime of 60 minuites rather than the usual 45. I know which one i'd rather!
9.The Doctor uses the phrase "wibbly wobbly timey wimey" at one point.

Details on the BBC Website. Exciting stuff! Source

Moffat says....

Steven Moffat's been busy giving interviews and it seems everyone wants a piece of the new showrunner for Series 5. Theres not to much new info but its Doctor Who related so who cares!Thanks to the wonderful Doctor Who Time Vortex for alerting me of this.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même Doctor Who. Or is it? “I finally saw a completed episode last night,” says Steven Moffat, who, in a useful Americanism, is the venerable sci-fi series’s new “show runner”. “Everything, every single thing you see and hear is new: new man playing the part; new girl; the theme music’s the same but it’s been rearranged; different titles ...”

The full interview with The Guardian is here.

Making it happen means going boldly, and with a "Geronimo!" that appears to be a catchphrase of the new Doctor. Moffat is reluctant to plunder Who's history without good reason – "The more you back-reference, the more it feels like a sequel and the sequel is never as good as the original" – but that isn't to say that the past is another galaxy. "Old favourites can return, provided you can do something new and exciting with them. There are no past characters coming back in this series, but I imagine that kids would love to see Captain Jack meet the new Doctor."

There full  interview with The Times is here.
