Dr Who confidentials are the behind the scenes documentarries they air after every new episode. It seems weird that they would put one out when a new episode isn't airing but I suppose it makes sense if it's dedicated entirely to the fact....

And cheers for the heads up Daf.

I remember what they are now, they used to be on at the end of Torchwood too. According to the BBC schedule:

Saturday 3rd January, 5:35pm.
Dr Who Confidential: The Ten Doctors.

It has been 45 years since the TARDIS first landed on BBC1. Join us as we look at the lives of the ten Doctors, their most heroic moments and terrifying adventures, as well as the monsters, costumes and companions which have defined them.



Indy, the BBC website has replays of some of the more popular shows for a week following the original air date on the BBCiPlayer (www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer). Given how popular Dr Who is over here, it may be availabe to watch online but I don't know if you have to pay or if it only available for UK residents.

Yeah the iplayer is only available to UK residents, but to be honest the whole confidential/interview will probably be uploaded to youtube soon after so international viewers can see it.

Also the confidential has been re-named 'The Eleventh Doctor'.

My first thoughts were "...who is this weirdo?" They are remarkably similar to my current thoughts. 1.gif

I'm sure a lot of people will be saying this, but he does seem too young. I'm not sure he'll be able to carry the mantle of such a well-established show as Doctor Who. I shall reserve full judgment until Spring 2010 though. smile.gif

He auditioned for the role and everyone said he nailed it straight away, looking over his career though his first professional acting job was only a few years ago... They showed a couple of clips of him in other shows and he at least does have the energy of a Doctor...

I have no idea who he is. I agree he does look extremely young. I fell in love with DT immediately and was very upset with his decision to leave the show. I do love the Who mythology, so I'm watch and see what happens. A lot depends on who his companion is as well. Billie as Rose was the very worst one. Martha and Donna were the very best. I also enjoyed Sarah Jane as well.

Regarding Matt Smith, my friend had to say this:

Also is it just me or does Matt Smith remind you of the guy from Clockwork Orange?

First off, I just watched a 5 minute interview with this Matt on being named the Eleventh Doctor. I have to say that I did like his enthusiasm for the whole mythology of Who and getting the part. Yes, he came across as young, but there was so much joy in him for getting the part. In that regard, he reminds me of DT's Doctor. DT always has a lot of enthusiasm for what he does. So we shall wait and see.

Oh and I just watched a 9 minute clip of the Christmas 2008 special and all I can say is WOW! bow.gif That was awesome and I just cannot wait to see the whole thing.

I trust Moffat, and if he vetted this guy then I'm behind him. Plus they do like to pick relatively unknown actors as the Doctor.


...though Morrisey was brilliant.

I was watching Fires of Pompeii and I noticed the one guy's name. Lucius Petrus Dextrus.

So I looked up the translation, and his name means "Shining Rocky Right-Hand." Very clever of TPTB. laugh.gif
