Coming soon from BBC Books is a new Doctor Who tie-in e-book entitled The Angel’s Kiss: A Melody Malone Mystery featuring a very pulp-inspired cover. The cover also appears in The Angels Take Manhattan episode of Doctor Who, airing September 29 on BBC and BBC America.
I am a big-time build-a-figure chump. If there is an item that I think I need, then I am going to buy any number of figures that I don’t in order to have it. Sometimes I can unload the extraneous toys on eBay, sometimes I just end up with extra figures.
Despite knowing that the Pandorica “toy” that this series of Doctor Who figures built was in no way a good toy, I had to have it (this was before the set with River Song and the chair was announced). Just the concept of the Pandorica is so cool that even a semi-decent one would do. Granted, I was hoping for a bit more than semi-decent when I preordered the set from BigBadToyStore (In the interest of fairness I have to tell you I would have ordered from JRsToyWorld.com because it was fifteen[!] bucks cheaper but they sold out their preorders).
The only figures I was really excited about from The Pandorica Opens set were the Doctor and the Cyberman. “Doctor in a Fez” is a concept I cannot resist; heck, anything in a fez is a concept I can’t resist. And the Cyberman is just awesome, what with his crazy skull face.
The Amy Pond figure originally pictured with this set was the same as the one that I already had, but ended up being the version in the police officer costume. And not the Kiss-O-Gram version either, this is technically the “Sexy Time With Rory” version. Cool.
Karen Gillan really doesn’t want to come back to Doctor Who after she’s ended her run as the Eleventh Doctor’s companion, Amy Pond, in the upcoming seventh season. Not even in a cameo—insisting that Amy’s exit from the show should be final.
In an interview with IGN, the Scottish red-head has made it pretty clear that she doesn’t want Amy to come back to the TARDIS. Like EVER. Basically, Gillan wants to make sure she’s not gonna pull a Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) or a Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) Continue reading
When Doctor Who guru Steven Moffat decided to write in the new Eleventh Doctor’s (Matt Smith) newest companion, Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), he had an ultimate goal in mind—to add some sexual tension in the famous blue police box.
You are cordially invited to view the wedding photos of Mr. Rory William and Ms. Amelia Pond, or should we say Mr and Mrs. Pond and one uninvited party crasher. Warning Spoilers if you haven’t seen the season 5 finale yet
