Welcome!

Welcome to Tardis Point News. This blog is no longer running, as I started watching Parks and Recreation and am still mourning over the cancellation of Eureka. Don't stop watching Doctor Who though, which is and always will be the best TV show ever.

The End of Time Teasers

Digital Spy has released the usual 10 teasers for part 1 of The End of Time. You can read them here. You can also read them below, by highlighting the area. The last 2 you can catch on the Digital Spy page. Spoilers Ahead..



  • The first line of the episode? "It is said that in the final days of planet Earth, everyone had bad dreams."
  • Continuing the Children In Need scene, where The Doctor is in the cave with The Ood, he sees visions of The Master, Joshua Naismith... and Wilf.
  • The Master's resurrection is preposterous. Absolutely preposterous. Lucy Saxon - incarcerated after the events of 'The Last of the Time Lords' - plays a key part in the process. And she has such lovely lipstick.
  • We don't have to wait too long before The Master and The Doctor come face-to-face for their Star Wars-esque battle. Other films getting small nods in 'Part One' include Jaws 2 (thump thump) and The Matrix.
  • Joshua Naismith, an idiot and a fool, wants Harold Saxon The Master to do something for him.
  • There's an awful lot of Wilf in this episode. Not too much Donna to start with, although we find out what she's been doing with her life while The Doctor's been absent. And she's still very special.
  • POTUS!
  • Random words from the script: "cactus" (Wilf), "shimmer" (Doctor), "coincidence" (TV), "so hungry" (Master), "...new man goes sauntering away" (Doctor).
The End of Time, Part One will air on BBC One on Christmas Day at 6pm.

Advent Calendar

Hi everyone! I began making the new upgraded Whoviavortex a while back, called Tardis-Point. It was on blogger, and I used a downloaded template, but.. that didn't really go so well. So just this week, I started making it on Wix, and so far, it's going great! I decided that I'm making an advent calendar, coming up to Christmas and New Years. About half of them will include sneak peaks of the new site, because I don't really have much time to make one for each day. Others will include packs of icons, quizzes, wallpapers, and more. Enjoy!
