The battle against The Silents continues in Day of the Moon, as the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions form a plan to begin a revolution against the strange aliens who use their post-hypnotic suggestive powers to control to human race. The Doctor has a plan, involving Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong’s foot… but the Silents may prove to become the Doctor’s most dangerous adversaries of all time…
During TARDISblend 24, we review the events of Doctor WhoDay of the Moon, and discuss the possibilities of who the strange little girl (Sydney Wade) was in this episode — as well as the jaw-dropping cliffhanger involving her at the end of the episode! We take a look at the complex relationship and tragic love story between The Doctor and River Song (Alex Kingston), and how he wants to run off to new adventures at the conclusion of the episode as opposed to finding out more about the mysterious little girl and The Silents.
We also examine the character of Canton Everett Delaware III (Mark Sheppard) and ponder him making another appearance in Doctor Who down the line. But more importantly, we speculate on the importance of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), and how significant her role will be during this series. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
The first episode of Doctor Who Series 6 is finally here! And in The Impossible Astronaut we find our heroes, the Doctor and his companions, separated for an unexplained reason. They are reunited by numbered TARDIS Blue envelopes containing a summons, taking them to the United States, where a Stetson-wearing Doctor explains to them they must travel back to Space 1969.
But there’s more than this Doctor is telling them, for his next few moments will have deadly consequences, and set a path for his companions to travel back in time where they will meet a new dangerous villain known only as The Silence.
During TARDISblend 23, we review the events of The Impossible Astronaut, and speculate how everything ties into both the upcoming episodes of Series 6, and the unanswered questions and clues left over from Series 5. We discuss the oddities surrounding the 1103-year-old Stetson Doctor, and ponder the absence of his TARDIS as well as a couple of other confusing issues.
As we move closer to the first episode of of Doctor Who Series 6, there are more tidbits of information coming out about this year’s season — including returning villains (and the tools at their disposal) and surprising guest stars that are returning from Series 5. The following information could be considered a tad on the spoilery side — so consider to have been alerted!
First off, as the spoiler-hounds have known for some time now, the Cybermen will be returning in Series 6, but what makes things interesting is who and what will also be in the episode.
Following the broadcast of the Doctor Who Christmas Special, the TARDISblend returns, as we not only review A Christmas Carol, but discuss the new teaser trailer for Doctor Who Series 6, and discover a couple of bits and pieces you may have missed!
