Matt Smith Leaving ‘Doctor Who’ After Christmas Special »

I’m clearing my calendar so that I will have the rest of the weekend to drown in a puddle of my tears. BBC is expected to announce that Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who after its eighth season. The Eleventh Doctor will supposedly regenerate during this year’s Christmas Special.
The Telegraph quotes Smith to say, “Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show. I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience. Many of them have become good friends and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.”
Matt Smith will definitely be missed by many, especially those who – like me – regard him as “their Doctor.” It will be interesting to see who is chosen in the search for the Twelfth Doctor.
What do you think of Matt Smith’s impending departure? Who would you pick to play the next Doctor?
Karen Gillan, probably best known as Doctor Who‘s Amelia Pond, is the newest addition to the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
The movie is barreling towards a late June shoot in the UK with James Gunn behind the camera.
The movie is in casting mode, with Glenn Close joining the roll call earlier this week. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista lead the cast of Marvel’s space adventure movie, which has Lee Paceand Michael Rooker as villains.
Details for Gillan’s role were not revealed although it is known she will play the film’s lead female villain.
It will be great to see Karen in a big screen role, and as a villain no less!
First off, today is Doctor Who day! A new episode will air tonight on BBC America. Enjoy it! But I have some interesting news to share about the Doctor Who’s season finale (titled: The Name Of The Doctor). Steven Moffat, shownrunned, has promised it will change everything.
Digital Spy says that Moffat has announced the The Name Of The Doctor will “change the course of Who forever” and went on to tease:
“It’s full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor’s greatest secret. We’ll also find out what makes his new companion [Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman] so impossible and there’s a surprise that no-one has got right so far.”
In regards to more information about the mysterious nature of Clara’s character, Moffat went on to add:
“All I can say is that Clara hasn’t just met the Doctor three times before.”
Read more at NME. This is some scary/exciting news for all Whovians out there! What and who is Clara? How will it change Doctor Who forever? Anyone else a little freaked out about this? Just as an added bonus, here’s more info on the brand new TARDIS!
The official BBC Doctor Who Twitter revealed the name and poster for the upcoming Doctor Who finale: “The Name of the Doctor.” Will the longstanding mystery finally have an answer? Will it mean the fall of the Eleventh? We’ll have to wait to find out.
What are your predictions for the finale?

Doctor Who: David Tennant & Billie Piper Will Return! »
I have some very exciting news to share. It’s been confirmed that David Tennant (Doctor #10) & Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) will be returning for the 50th year anniversary of Doctor Who! The BBC has confirmed that (somehow) David Tennant and Bille Piper will join current Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companion (Jenna-Louise Coleman) in some sort of adventure. John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien, Harry Potter) will co-star.
How all of these pieces will fit together hasn’t be revealed yet. But who cares! Doctor #10 and Rose are coming back! Unfortunately, there’s no news on when this will happen yet.
Now enjoy the trailer for the next Doctor Who episode. The Cold War, which will air this Saturday at Doctor Who’s regular time.
