One Last Team-Up For Doctor Who And Martha Jones

fb share tweet share

whoI was late to the game with Doctor Who. As a kid I saw more than my share of the older, BBC episodes and they never did anything for me. As an adult, I tuned into the first few episodes of the current series to give the whole Who thing another shot, and was instantly turned off by the somewhat shoddy stories.

I gave up on Doctor Who for awhile, but eventually gave it another shot when by chance, I happened to tune in for the first episode of Freema Agyeman. I was hooked. David Tennant as the Doctor and Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones were the perfect pairing and suddenly, now I get it. Unfortunately the new season will restart without Tennant and Agyeman. They’ve brought in yet another Doctor Who and as usual he’ll probably pick up new companions. I’ll give it another shot, but to me the show will never, ever be as good as when I first fell in love with it, watching Tennant and Agyeman roving the universe in the Tardis.

Now that I’ve waxed poetic for two paragraphs maybe you’ll understand why I’m so excited about this bit of news: IDW has a run of Doctor Who comics going, Doctor Who comics which currently feature the 10th Doctor and his one and only true companion, Martha Jones. On February 25th of this month, they’re releasing a special one-shot Doctor Who comic called “The Whispering Gallery” by artist Ben Templesmith and writers Leah Moore & John Reppion. Here’s how Sci-Fi Wire describes it:

Eva Green Is Crazy For Clones!

1If you don’t know who Eva Green is, then just know she’s someone you’d very much like to clone. Unfortunately instead of having more of her to spread around, her next movie will be a sci-fi flick in which she multiplies her husband.

Variety says she’s set to star in a futuristic drama called Womb. A few years ago this would have been called a science fiction movie, but now everyone in the mainstream has to pretend that sci-fi isn’t sci-fi, lest they be accused of being nerds. I guess Hollywood is afraid someone (Bollywood maybe?) will give them a wedgie.

The movie stars super sexy Eva Green as a woman who decides to clone her dead husband. Clone alone ought to get your sci-fi weenie going, but if that doesn’t do it then this will: Matt Smith is co-starring as her husband. Smith, is the new Doctor Who. He’ll be replacing the great (and in my opinion best Doctor ever) Andy Tennant next season.

Trailer: The New Season Of Doctor Who!

doctorwho3049f.jpgThe recently resurrected Doctor Who is returning to television soon… over in the United Kingdom. Here in America we’re always on something of a Doctor Who lag. But our British brothers already have a new trailer for the Doctor’s upcoming season, and it’s playing only in UK movie theaters.

That’s great for them, unfortunately for us it means that the only version of the trailer available to watch is a really crummy, grainy, YouTube thing shot on someone’s cell phone. Still, it’s better than nothing, especially if you’re a fan hungering for more. Here’s the trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who:
