Theories on how Sherlock lives in the Radiotimes.

Worryingly starting to make sense…

(I apologise for the phone quality photo but I was trying to take it without my brother asking me what I was doing as he already thinks I have a weird obsession with Sherlock no idea why)

Fans, reporters and Daleks flock to meet Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman at Doctor Who premier

Showrunner Steven Moffat joined the two stars in Cardiff ahead of the world premier of the series eight opening episode

Peter CapaldiJenna Coleman and Steven Moffat met crowds of excited Doctor Who fans in Cardiff today as they prepared for the world premier of Capaldi’s debut episode as the new Doctor.

The glossy photos of the event kindly shared by the BBC (like this one and the one above) are all very nice of course but we had an intrepid reporter on the ground, with a camera phone, getting in amongst it all to bring you candid shots of Capaldi, Coleman and Moffat, plus fans and Daleks. [x]

Pearl Mackie’s Doctor Who codename revealed

Making Doctor Who must sometimes feel like being a spy behind enemy lines. Everyone wants to know what you’re planning, but only a select few know the truth – and if you’re in the loop, you need a way of keeping your secrets safe.

That’s why there’s such a long history of codenames in Doctor Who. With clever use of anagrams and a healthy ability to lie through their teeth, Doctor Who stars and companions have managed to keep their identities under wraps until the big reveal.

New Doctor Who companion Pearl Mackie was no different. Who casting director Andy Pryor, who has worked on the show since its revival in 2005, reveals that he, showrunner Steven Moffat and the team had a code word for talking about the new companion.

“Her codename was ‘Mean Town’,” confirms Pryor. Hmm, wonder what the significance of that is? A reference to Ninth Doctor episode Boom Town? Alittle-known Prince track?

Not exactly.

“It’s an anagram of Ten Woman,” explains Pryor. “Series ten, and also the tenth companion of the modern series.”

So there you have it, another piece of the Bill puzzle falls into place.

“These anagrams are becoming harder to think of but they’re always fun. It’s really so that nobody reads an email over someone’s shoulder and the name pings out at them,” he adds.

“The fact is, if it’s a successful codename, nobody knows about it until afterwards,” Pryor says. “It’s as much to amuse ourselves as anything else.” [x]

Cumberbatch says series three, which starts filming next week, could hit screens at Christmas.

“I think they’re talking about the winter [to show it]. Around Christmas but I’m not quite sure when,” Cumberbatch told RadioTimes.com.

Doctor Who: exclusive In the Forest of the Night poster revealed

Saturday’s episode of Doctor Who sees the world wake up to find the trees have moved back in overnight, leaving Clara (Jenna Coleman) and Danny (Samuel Anderson) trapped in London with their Year Eight Gifted and Talented Group. 

From writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce (the man who penned Danny Boyle’s Olympic Opening Ceremony), In the Forest of the Night makes reference to William Blake’s The Tyger and harks back to elements of that balmy evening in London’s Stratford stadium. 

“This episode is about as fairy tale as Doctor Who’s ever been and so I wanted to do something simple and direct built around the title,” Stuart told RadioTimes.com. “I also drew slightly on a sideways connection with the musical into the woods, which got me thinking about old Broadway posters and a composition built like a theatre stage. It’s pretty much that with a touch of Brothers Grimm lurking around the edges… a bit like Doctor Who, really. [x]
