Doctor Who to Release Mini-Episode Next Week

Written by: Sam McPherson at TV Rage.

Matt Smith as The Doctor

May 17th, 2012, 1:59 pm

Doctor Who will be returning to television next week. A mini-episode, based upon the winning entry for this year’s Script to Screen competition, will air Thursday in the UK during the CBBC channel series Blue Peter at 5:45pm.

Script to Screen is a competition in which primary school children aged 9 to 11 years old write and submit scripts. The winning entry each year is adapted into a mini-episode. Last year’s episode was the zany outing “Death is the Only Answer,” which saw saw Albert Einstein mysteriously appear in the TARDIS before being transformed into an Ood and back. It wasn’t exactly “Blink,” but it was a fun outing nonetheless.

Thursday’s mini-episode has a bit of a current topic: it’s based around the 2012 Olympics (which are taking place in London). Matt Smith will appear as the Doctor, though it’s unknown who else (if anyone else) will feature into the episode.

Doctor Who has previously featured the Olympic Games in the second series episode “Fear Her,” which saw the Doctor (then played by David Tennant) visit the then-future 2012 Olympic Games and light the Olympic Torch. “Fear Her” is widely considered as one of revived series’ worst episodes. Perhaps these primary schoolers can save the Olympics for the Doctor.

Doctor Who will not return as a series proper until August, when its seventh season premieres. The series will be the final one to feature Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as the Doctor’s companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams; Gillan and Darvill wrapped filming earlier this week.

You can check out the last mini-episode, “Death is the Only Answer,” here.

John Barrowman wants to do a Who movie (but not with Matt Smith)

Barrowman wants to do Doctor Who movie but without Matt SmithBy Nathalie Caron, Source: Blastr.com

Poor Matt Smith. Seems that Torchwood’s John Barrowman—who is, as always, more than willing to reprise his character of immortal Captain Jack Harkness in anything Who-related—is ready to do a Doctor Who movie … IF it’s done with David Tennant as the Doctor.

That’s what the always-chatty 44-year-old actor revealed in an interview with RTE, where he also broached the subject of what’s happening with Torchwood and why it hasn’t been commissioned for a fifth series yet, even though Torchwood: Miracle Day ended its run a couple weeks back. Continue reading
