Doctor Who: The End of Time.

So that disturbing image is from last week’s Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars. Did you watch it? What did you think? Other than giving me nightmares about drinking water for the rest of my life, I finally got to see the darkest side of Doctor Who that we first saw at the end of  “The Family of Blood” episode:

Tonight’s episode begins the two part goodbye to David Tennant as Doctor Who. Still a little bitter about that. He’s gone on to greener pastures…or a sure to be cancelled in a couple of weeks series in America. I’m not being mean I swear, you just name me the last series Jerry O’Connell was on that lasted more than a month. Go ahead. Think about it. I’ll give you a minute…see? You know I’m right.

Here are a few links about tonight’s episode:

SciFi Wire talks about David Tennant’s exit…warning there are spoilers.

The Boston Herald talks to executive producer, Julie Gardner, who is also exiting the show.

The Star-Ledger talks to David Tennant about filming his last scene.

I love you BBC America. I thought all hope was lost with the end of 30 Rock and that damn AMC pushing Mad Men back to August, but now, thanks to you wonderful people, my summer tv viewing is really starting to look up. Here is the latest:

  • The new Doctor Who specials will begin airing starting with the Christmas special on June 27th. Entertainment Weekly has a short clip here.
  • The Doctor’s new assistant has also been announced. She is Karen Gillan, who you might remember from “The Fires of Pompeii” episode. Matt Smith is the new Doctor.
  • SciFi Wire has the newest Torchwood trailer, which starts airing this July.
  • SF Universe has the lowdown on what the hell Being Human is all about. It’s a strange premise, but from the reviews I’ve read from people who have already seen it in the UK, I will give it a chance. The series begins on July 28th.

Now if they would just bring back Mistresses for another season, all would be right in the world.

Since I am not a patient person, the wait for the next season of Doctor Who has been killing me. I’m not too keen on the new Doctor but I’ll give him a chance to make the character his own before judging him. In the meantime, I think I need to take a trip to Scotland so I can see the coolest exhibit ever. Visitors to the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow have a chance to get up and close with the characters and creatures that have been a part of the amazing world of Doctor Who. Of course, being unemployed and broke means I will need to win the lottery or rob a bank before the exhibit ends in January 2010.

If you’ve never heard of Doctor Who, it’s British sci-fi series that centers around a time traveling alien. It orginally ran from 1963-1989  but was brought back in 2005. I think all four seasons have been fantastic but Season 3 is my favorite so far. You can go here to read an interview with the current Doctor Who, David Tennant and writer/producer, Russell T. Davies.
