‘Doctor Who’ Returns in Spoilery New Mini-sode
It’s been a good while since we’ve had any decent ‘Doctor Who‘ news, partially because the actors have been busy filming, partially because series show-runner Steven Moffat simply likes making us wait for new material. But if we’re really made to wait until late 2013 for any new adventures from The Doctor and Amy Pond, couldn’t the BBC help us out with with a little taste? What? They can? Fantastic!
The BBC has released an all new mini-sode “Good as Gold,” part of a tie-in to the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, but any new ‘Doctor Who’ is good, right? Not to mention, however hokey the Doctor’s brief adventure through time might be, it does introduce one particularly spoilery bit of news from the coming season: the Weeping Angels are definitely back!
Few details are known about the forthcoming season of ‘Doctor Who,’ other than the imminent departure of current companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arther Darvill), and the companion to follow being played by Jenna Louise Coleman. Elsewhere, their departure likely involves the sinisterly creepy ‘Doctor Who’ villains “The Weeping Angels,” who have been seen adorning the set a number of times.
“Good as Gold” actually comes from the winning entry in the Script to Screen competition from Ashdene Primary School in Wilmslow,, a competition where children from UK elementary schools have their ‘Doctor Who’ script brought to TV.
Check out the brief episode below, and tell us what you’re most looking forward to about the new season of ‘Doctor Who’ in the comments!
