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.

Matthew Graham to Write for Series 6?

Den of Geek's interview with Matthew Graham, he says that there is a chance that he'll write an episode of Doctor Who for series 6. He wrote series 2's Fear Her.

"I'd love to come back. I went to see Piers Wenger and Steven Moffat last year about doing a two-parter for the series that they're shooting now. And I contacted them and said, ‘Look, I've got this idea for a Doctor Who. Can I talk to you?' And they were, ‘Yeah, yeah. Brilliant.' And I just couldn't make the time work, with going to the States and Ashes gearing up again. But I'd love to go back and do some more.

I want to do one with monsters. They owe me monsters!"

We then asked if he thought he was pencilled in for a series six story if he could make the time work. And here's what Matthew said:

"Yeah, yeah. I do actually. Piers has been really, really gracious and said that if you could come and do a Doctor Who for us, we'd really love to have you back. And I'd love to do it. It's a fantastic job. A very, very nerve-wracking job. But since I've had an even bigger, more scary franchise to get involved with for a bit. And now I've got my own to look after as well! It's a series of people handing me precious objects and saying don't drop them! "

End of Time Bar Scene

I was pretty bored, so I've got screencaps of the tribute to Star Wars cantina scene in The End of Time. Apparently, the bar was in a city called Zagizalgul, on the planet.. Zog. So, here we go...

New alien! I think. It looks so familiar, but I can't think of any other alien this may be based on.

A Slitheen! The Companions and story arcs will be brand new from series 5, do you think some of the RTD monsters will be too? Because otherwise the Slitheen has got to stay put.

Graske. The first time that Graske has actually been on Doctor Who properly. They were on the interactive episode Attack of the Graske, the BBC Proms special, Music of the Spheres and numerous SJA episodes.

An Adipose! Did he escape from the Adipose Mother-ship or something? Lost child! And that woman in white is new. Bit random..

Bubbly! Mr Hath. Nothing really to put here..

These guys were seen filming! But if they needed more monsters, the scene would have been better off with previous episode monsters like the Forest of Cheem or a Cat Person, colouring someone completely is just a terrible alien! Or even humanoid.

Judoon. Shouldn't he be on duty?

Who's this??? It looks like he's talking to the Judoon in a few shots, but he's new I think. And he doesn't remind me of anyone. And, in the background. Who is that??

Robot! The scene needs a robot in there. He looks amazing! Moffat has got to put him in his era. Who does he look like then? The Breen, from Star Trek?

As I said before. These two look like they're talking. Or not.

The.. guy! The barman. Looks human.

Hey, Doc.

Hey, Jack.

Little Graske again. On the bottom right.

Look who's back! Allons-y Alonso!

There's that Graske again! He really is cheeky.

he doesn't like salutes.

That alien in the middle! With the helmet. That's a new alien, I think. There's a couple of them walking around, always getting in front of the camera.

A Silurian! There, at the back. If you need to, here's what the classic series version was like. And it's that random woman in white.

So... please comment
