‘A Christmas Carol’ DVD & Blu-Ray

2010’s Christmas special ‘A Christmas Carol’, overall, got an astoundingly good reception so I’m assuming most of you liked it, and very soon it will be available for you to buy on DVD and Blu-Ray respectively in stand-alone, 1-disc editions…

Click images to enlarge.
Amy and Rory are trapped on a crashing space liner, and the only way The Doctor can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser, in a festive edition of the time-travelling adventure, written by Steven Moffat. But is Kazran Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve?
Joining Matt Smith (The Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Michael Gambon plays Kazran Sardick and Katherine Jenkins plays Abigail.

Special Features:
- Doctor Who Confidential – Christmas 2010
- Doctor Who at The Proms 2010
Doctor Who ‘A Christmas Carol’ is released on DVD for retail at £12.99 and Blu-Ray for £15.99 on 24th January 2011.

Fan-Art: “I Love New Planets”


This is the first of what will hopefully be a new, semi-regular feature of DWF of some of my fan-art of Doctor Who and its spin-offs. This first piece of artwork is called “I Love New Planets”, reminiscent of the Eleventh Doctor’s line in ‘A Christmas Carol’.

I drew this just last night and I'm pretty damn proud of it as it was just meant to be a silly little doodle at first.

It's based around the moment in Doctor Who's 2010 Christmas special, 'A Christmas Carol' when ,on an Earth-like planet where the fish swim in the fog, the Eleventh Doctor sees some small fish swimming around a street lamp and says, "I love new planets..."

NOTE: I'm also planning on updating it with the street lamp's light and shading.

Made entirely by Jamesgrayh owner of Doctor Who Fansite and may not be reproduced in any way.

Series Six Trailer!

Wasn't 'A Christmas Carol' brilliant? And on top of that we were treated to the traditional 'Coming Soon' trailer, this time a one-minute trailer for Series Six, featuring most-notably the TARDIS team in the desserts of Utah and sweeping dessert helicopter shots, alongside The Doctor in the White House's Oval Office, a familiar beard-y man, creepy dolls, and other pretty exciting prospects...

"I wear a Stetson now... Stetson's are cool."

What do you think of it? What are you looking forward to most?

Fez-tacular Figure!

articleimage_421 Steven Moffat has revealed a bit of information of what seems to be a possible and probable future Character Online Doctor Who action figure of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor in his full Series 5 costume, but with trademark fez accessory and… wait for it… mop from ‘The Big Bang’!

These are The Moff's actual tweets: 
@steven_moffat Steven Moffat
”I have an 11th Doctor action figure WITH A FEZ!!!!!”

@steven_moffat Steven Moffat
”Also ......... A MOP!!!"

No official announcement or any kind of leak of photos have been made as of yet, but I’m certainly keeping my fingers crossed.

Amy Pond Kissogram-Outfit Action Figure

The Mirror ‘newspaper’ has recently reported the news of an upcoming action figure of Amy Pond in her Policewoman kissogram costume outfit, but it seems this time the red-top tabloid may be telling the truth, as their article on the subject features a photo of the said action figure, which could be proof.

We have no confirmation that this is an official action figure as of yet, but The Mirror claims that it will be released in around two weeks time.

What do you think? Would you buy this figure?
