Radio Free Skaro has stumbled upon an official BBC release promoting the upcoming Series 1 (aka Series Fnarg) of Matt Smith’s tenure as The Doctor. Not only does the release state that the first episode, The Eleventh Hour, will be 60 minutes long, but it gives a few tantalizing details of the series to come. From the release:

A new era of Doctor Who begins in Spring 2010. This latest series of the BBC’s flagship drama programme sees Matt Smith’s debut as the new, Eleventh incarnation of the famous Time Lord alongside a new travelling companion, the enigmatic Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

Together they explore 16th century Venice, France during the 1890s and the United Kingdom in the far future, now an entire nation floating in space.

As always, wherever the Doctor goes, his oldest enemies are never far behind – the Daleks are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s. But they are not the only strange creatures the Doctor and Amy must face – there are also alien vampires. humanoid reptiles, old enemies such as the Weeping Angels, a Star Whale, and a silent menace that follows Amy and the Doctor around wherever they go…

Very exciting stuff! Interesting to note that the series is also billed as “Series 5” in the release – how confusing! As always, stay tuned to for all your Doctor Who news leading up to Matt Smith’s debut as the Doctor in the spring.

  1. I’m certainly no fan of gossip…I once had a vicious rumour spread about me having a crush for Tom Baker as he looks now…

    however this got me thinking as to how much I love that tassly hair the scrumption grin and oh yes…the best eyes you’ll ever see. You could look so deep into those eyes that one might say that you could fall into a vortex in one of those eyes. Possibly both.

    Back to Series 5…Anyone who calls it Series 1 will from now on be found. Oh what I will do to those insignificant sycophants will be a tale that is lost in legend as a scary story to tell the kids. One day it mat even makee it as a Doctor Who episode. Starring Paul McGann. With Rose playing Romana, as Romana has decided to come find The Doctor, and when she learns of his love for Rose, she regenerates into Rose’s look.

    It’s gonna happen, I tell ya…

  2. Whoah, sounds like Series 5 will be awesome. Doctor Who has been getting a bit gaudy recently, Steven Moffat’s darker writing style should bring the Doctor bang up to date. Speaking of which, personally I don’t think Matt Smith’ll be very good, but we’ll see.

  3. I always find it scary and exciting when a New Doctor Who arrives. In Matt Smith’s case I was a bit sceptic if he would a great doctor. So far from the video clips and info I have seen online, he has potential. Only time will tell. The human reptiles mentioned above sound to me like the Silurians. The Silurians were first featured in a Third Doctor story called ‘The Silurians’. The fifth Doctor also met the Silurians in the story called ‘Warriors from the Deep’. I hope they are Silurians, I also liked their voice.

    When I read about Alien Vampires that reminds me of the story ‘State of Decay’ – last season of the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker). I wonder are the vampires related.

    Amy Pond seems like an interesting character. It will be interesting to see what type of character she has. All in all I am glad a new season of Doctor Who is on its way and I really hope its a great season.
