It’s been a while, but it’s time for another TARDISblend – and now with filming underway for Doctor Who Series 7, the floodgates have opened on the news and rumor mill. During TARDISblend 48, we preview the schedule for Series 7 and 8, as showrunner Steven Moffat begins the lead to the massive 50th Anniversary year in 2013.
We take a look at the confirmed information, as well as the unconfirmed rumors – including one that hints of a main star from Moffat’s Sherlockmay be taking on the reigns of a familiar long-time Who villain. We also discuss the possibilities of the new companion for the Doctor (Matt Smith) into Series 7 and beyond, as Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) make their “heartbreaking” exit; as well as what is ahead for River Song (Alex Kingston).
Outside of the run-up to the new series, we take a look at IDW’s upcomingDoctor Who / Star Trek cross-over comic, and the fan movement to getDavid Tennant to light the Olympic flame this year. As always, we make some Classic Doctor Who recommendations, and highlight what is coming up for both the future of this Whovian podcast!
