Looking to see all the Doctor’s regenerations in one place?
The BBC has a box-set for you.
Actor John Barrowman is upset that no one called him to be part of the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who.
While I appreciate all the complexities of a Steven Moffat written script, every once in a while it’s nice to see Doctor Who take the less is more approach.
As is the case with this week’s installment, “The Rings of Akhaten.”
Had David Tennant decided to stay for a season with producer Steven Moffat, we’d still have met Amy Pond, but the story would have been a bit different.

BBC America has sent over a sneak peak at the episode and some details.
The latest rumor swirling around the big fiftieth anniversary celebration of Doctor Who is that we almost got actor Christopher Eccleston to reprise his role as the ninth Doctor.
Comparisons between classic Doctor Who writer Robert Holmes and current series runner Steven Moffat have been inevitable ever since Moffat’s first story “The Empty Child” and “The Doctor Dances.” But these comparisons were even more inevitable (at least for this fan) on a weekend in which BBC America aired both “The Bells of Saint John” and the classic third Doctor serial “Spearhead from Space.”
Over the weekend, it was revealed that actors David Tennant and Billie Piper will be on hand to celebrate fifty years of Doctor Who.
Ask Doctor Who producer Steven Moffat which is his favorite episode of the upcoming eight installments to round out season seven and he’ll honestly tell you it’s the next one.

Actor John Barrowman has been vocal about his desire to be part of the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who.
If you were to create a list of the most influential people in the 50 year run of Doctor Who, Patrick Troughton’s name would have to be near the top or at the top of that list. Fifty years on, the concept of regeneration and changing the lead actor is an integral part of the series’ longevity, but back in the day it was a huge risk for the show.
Matt Smith has seen the script for the upcoming 50th anniversary Doctor Who special and he says it delivers. Smith even hints that one of the central questions the show has asked for fifty years may get answered.
