The Great Musical Darvill

This REALLY makes me wish there had been tickets available for Once The Musical when I was in NYC and Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams) was there.  I’d have loved to see this live:

Darvill Lets It Go

Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams/Pond sings his own version of Let It Go… And it. is. AWESOME.

Agents of Shield Who Reference

Did you see the last episode of Agents of Shield?  There was a reference to our favorite show in there!

Piper Up For Spin-Off

Another from Doctor Who TV.:

Billie Piper has said she would be up for a spin-off featuring Rose Tyler and the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor.

“That would be interesting… I’d be game!” she said at the recent Awesome Con panel when a fan posed the question to her.

Piper then addressed an issue some fans had with The Day of the Doctor – the fact she played the Moment rather than the real Rose meaning she didn’t get to reunite with the Tenth Doctor.

She said: “I’ve heard a lot of that, [fans saying] ‘Why couldn’t you just be Rose and actually see [the Tenth Doctor] and be with him?’”

“I think to come back and do something slightly different was welcome for me because I’d come back so many times that even though I loved Rose I thought it probably needed a bit of a shift. And that’s what Steven Moffat wanted, he brought something very different.”

She adds: “It’s good to watch it and wish that they could somehow connect in the way they used to instead of being totally satisfied. I really enjoyed playing it because I could be a bit mad and a bit strange.’

However, Piper admits she found playing the Moment hard to get her head around: “It was quite a confusing episode I thought. When I read the script I was like ‘what?!’ I got it in the end with the help of David though.”

Opinions?  I’m not so sure about it, but at the same time it might be interesting if done right.  If it was less for the kids and more adult it could be good.  However, for those die hard fans of the Ten/Rose relationship, I don’t think they’d get what they bargained for.

Happy Birthday Russell T Davies!

Smith Willing To Return

Not really news, as we’ve known this for a while, but Doctor Who TV confirms it again.  I only have one complaint.: When will they learn that he’s called “The Doctor” and not “Doctor Who”?  I expect better from someone who actually played the role!

Matt Smith has said that he is happy to reprise his role as the 11th Doctor for a future multi-Doctor anniversary story.

At the Wizard World Con panel, Smith spoke fondly of working with David Tennant: “It was a real historic moment for me. I always look at David and go, ‘Oh my god. It’s Doctor Who!’

“David is a great guy and a good friend. It was so fun. Doctors in the same room is just magic, isn’t it!”

He enthused: “I’ll happily come back for another anniversary!”
