For as long as the time John Barrowman first arrived in Doctor Who, he’s gathered an incredible cult following as the charismatic omnisexual Captain Jack Harkness. Having been in several episodes of modern Doctor Who as a companion and an ally, and remaining one of the main characters of spin-off Torchwood, many fans have questioned whether he would be returning for this year’s 50th Anniversary special.
The answer, right now, at the time of writing is: maybe. Well, better than maybe. In reality, it’s a good chance that he will be involved. Speaking in an interview on UK television show This Morning, Barrowman spilled the beans that he is now in discussions for appearing in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary.
Whether you like or inexplicably loathe Russell T. Davies, you have to admit that the man expanded the world of Doctor Who, working to fill it with a roster of unforgettable side characters like Rose, Jackie Tyler, River Song, The Doctor Donna, Wilfred Mott, Mickey, Martha Jones, and Captain Jack. Davies didn’t just let these characters roam though, he serviced them and made us care and even long for their return appearances.
Doctor Who, in the time of Steven Moffat, has not similarly excelled in this area. Oh sure, the love story of Rory and Amy will be written in the stars and spoken about for the whole of time (or something), and Moffat has more fully realized (for better or worse) River Song, his creation, but they don’t seem right for a spin-off and for the most part we only get snippets of other, smaller characters who we would love to get to know more.
It’s been a while, but it’s time for another TARDISblend – and now with filming underway for Doctor Who Series 7, the floodgates have opened on the news and rumor mill. During TARDISblend 48, we preview the schedule for Series 7 and 8, as showrunner Steven Moffat begins the lead to the massive 50th Anniversary year in 2013.
We take a look at the confirmed information, as well as the unconfirmed rumors – including one that hints of a main star from Moffat’s Sherlock may be taking on the reins of a familiar long-time Who villain. We also discuss the possibilities of the new companion for the Doctor (Matt Smith) into Series 7 and beyond, as Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) make their “heartbreaking” exit; as well as what is ahead for River Song (Alex Kingston).
For Doctor Who fans, the countdown to the fiftieth anniversary of the long-running television show is a road that goes ever on and on. Despite the fact we still have some time until November 23, 2013, some fans are already gearing up for the celebrations.
YouTube video maker, BabelColour, has released an updated tribute that is essentially all 224 adventures (which adds up to 784 episodes) of Doctor Who in ten minutes. You can view the video at the bottom of this post.
