With the exception of Iron Man 2, I have really enjoyed all of the Marvel Studios films thus far....but I watch that trailer this moment and I have to say, I wasn't in the slightest impressed by it at all...sorry to say.
It was the first part of what is basically a THREE parter, not two. Heaven Sent/Hell Bent is a proper two-part finale, but the week's episode is a direct prelude to set the stage for the finale....and the events of Clara's death play a big part in them, as far as I am aware.
Well, next week's episdode and the one after are a two-parter again....and they deal with the aftermath of last night's episode....essentially making it a 3-part finale. They have also been given longer running times as well. Next weeks will be 55 minutes long (so an extra 10 more minutes), but the finale episode will be 65 minutes long....and a full 20 extra minutes! :D Then only a couple of weeks until the Xmas special
The 10th Doctor is also mentioned/referenced in one of the New Frontier novels Blind Man's Bluff. Seven of Nine introduces another character to Voyager's EMH, and they reply that she once met an odd man in a long brown coat and blue suit who called himself "the Doctor," a reference to the tenth incarnation of the Doctor. Non-Who fans would not get that reference.
Yeah, well the BBC refused to pay for any other series past VIII as they only wanted to commission new things, which is why Dave eventually picked it up. Ironically though, Dave is part of the UKTV network, which is majority owned by the BBC! lol Back to Earth was actually a record breaker for Dave, as at the time is was the most viewed programme on a digital channel. (Even though it was not really that good) Series X really got things back to where they should be, and it was a foregone conclusion that more would come......but no-one expected series XI AND XII to be announced at the same time! :D
The last tv show I watched was Red Dwarf....I cannot tell you the name of the episode because I just do not know. I was in the audience watching it being filmed for Series XI that comes out next year! Very funny stuff :D
I've just noticed something....the title of this Sub-Forum "Star Trek (2009) & Beyond".....Did someone know all those years ago that "Beyond" would be the name of the film, and that STiD would be hated (that's why it isn't in the title )
Hmm, in all the excitement I forgot to post! lol I am loving this series....and last night's episode was yet again an amazing show. Further solidifying my opinion that Peter Capaldi is now my favourite Doctor!
