That Was The Week That Was 17.3.13
First of all, hope you have had (or are having) a great St. Patrick's Day.
Doctor Who was represented during this year's Comic Relief event, with Matt Smith joining the Call The Midwife team for a sketch. David Tennant also snogged comedian John Bishop during the proceedings.
Movie-style posters for the first 4 episodes of Series 7 Part 2 were released prematurely by the Radio Times (more on this in my next post), and we had two new trailers - one UK and one US. Three story titles were revealed in the process.
A prequel for the first episode will be available on the red button service from 23rd March.
Matt Smith appeared on The Jonathon Ross Show and a clip from The Bells of Saint John was shown - featuring the TARDIS arrival on an aircraft in flight. Smith also hinted the word "paintings" as having some significance for the anniversary show.
He was very evasive about his contribution to Doctor Who beyond this year.
One person who will not be around is Exec-Producer Caro Skinner, who has announced she has resigned from the show to concentrate on drama production roles in London.
We finally got to see the long-lost Galaxy 4 episode "Airlock" from Monday, as part of The Aztecs SE DVD (another separate post to follow also).
Lastly, Richard Bacon of Radio 5 Live visited the BBC Cardiff studios for a look around, and interviewed JLC.
