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.

Steven Moffat's Guide to Series 5

The latest issue of Radio Times featured a guide to every episode of series 5, by Steven Moffat. Episode 7's title has been revealed as "Amy's Choice". Read below, highlight to read the synopses' and quotes.

1. The Eleventh Hour
Writer: Steven Moffat

Geronimo! A brand new Doctor crashing to Earth. New face, new body, new man And he's barely staggered out of the blue box, before he's found himself in the middle of the Crisis That Just Won't Stop! No time to rest and recover, no TARDIS, no screwdriver - just six billion human beings about to die and only one man to save them. But the new Doctor encounters more than danger - this is the day he meets Amy Pond. Can he persuade her to trust him, when he's been letting her down all her life?

Quote: "Who da man?"

2. The Beast Below
Writer: Steven Moffat

The Doctor takes Amy to the far future, and Starship UK. The British people, adrift among the stars on a giant spaceship, in search of a new home. But there are secrets here, in the rusting corridors and clanging hallways. A masked figure, who knows the Doctor of old, begs his help, while Amy encounters the terrifying Smilers and uncovers a secret so dreadful, no one can remember it...

Quote: "Nobody talk to me! Nobody human has anything to say to me today!"

3. Victory of the Daleks
Writer: Mark Gatiss

From the terrifying future of the United Kingdom to one of the darkest chapters of its past - World War Two. The Doctor and Amy find themselves in a top secret cabinet war room deep beneath the London streets. And there, gliding among the nicotine walls and Bakelite telephones, the Daleks are hatching their deadliest scheme yet. Only one man can help the Doctor - but whose side is Winston Churchill on?

Quote: "I wanted to know what their plan was. I was their plan!"

4. The Time of Angels/5. Flesh and Stone
Writer: Steven Moffat

A two part story. A crashed spaceship, a shattered temple and a terrifying climb through the maze of the dead - River Song is back in the Doctor's life and she's brought more trouble than even he can handle. The last of the Weeping Angels is loose in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis, and the Doctor is recruited to track it down. "Don't blink!" everyone tells Amy - but as Amy is about to discover, not blinking might just be the worst thing you can do...

Quote: "Is River Song your wife?"

6. Vampires in Venice
Writer: Toby Whithouse

In Venice, even danger is beautiful. The House of Calvierri has the whole city under its protection, but something is very wrong. There are blood-drained corpses in the street, something lurks in the canal, and the Calvierri girls are the loveliest in town, except when you glance in the mirror...

Quote: "You know what's dangerous about you? Not that you ask people to take risks, but that you make them want to impress you!"

7. Amy's Choice
Writer: Simon Nye

It's been five long years since Amy travelled in the TARDIS with her mysterious Doctor - and when he shows up again, on the eve of the birth of her first child, danger is not far behind him. Amy is faced with a heartbreaking choice that will change her life forever.

Quote: "I know who you are. There's only one person in the universe who hates me as much as you do."

8/9. TBC
Writer: Chris Chibnall

In 2015, the most ambitious drilling project in history is under way. Dr Nasreen Chaudhry and her team have reached 21 kilometres into the Earth's crust - but something is stirring far below. Amy Pond discovers there's nowhere to run when you can't even trust the ground at your feet.

Quote: "While you've been drilling down... something else has been drilling up."

10. TBC
Writer: Richard Curtis

Terror lurks in the cornfields of Provence, but only a sad and lonely painter can see it. Amy Pond finds herself shoulder to shoulder with Vincent van Gogh, in a battle with a deadly alien - saving the world has never been so ginger! But can even the Doctor save Vincent?

Quote: "Art can wait, this is life and death. We need to talk to Vincent van Gogh!"

11. TBC
Writer: Gareth Roberts

The Doctor faces his greatest challenge yet - a flat share! People are disappearing on Aickman Road, and the Doctor must solve the mystery of a staircase that people walk up - but never down.

Quote: "All I have to do is pass as an ordinary human being. What could possibly go wrong?"

12/13. TBC
Writer: Steven Moffat

A message on the oldest cliff-face in the universe, a puzzle box opening from the inside and a love that lasts thousands of years... The Fates are drawing close around the TARDIS - is this the day the Doctor falls?

Quote: "There was a goblin. Or a trickster, or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it - one day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world."

Episode 11 News

The Daily Star has posted news about episode 11 of the next Doctor Who series, written by Gareth Roberts. It's apparently called "The Lodger" where "The Doc forgets to set the Tardis coordinates and it vanishes with his companion, Amy Pond, still inside. While he is waiting for his police box to come back, he ends up as James’s lodger. For once, he has to get in touch with his human side and be ordinary." Recently confimed, James Corden will be in the series, and The Daily Star reports that this is the episode he is in. Read more about it here.

It also states that The Doctor ends up playing football with James Corden's character, and they have been seen filming together, and them playing football.

None of this has been confirmed, and I'm not sure how much of this is reliable anyway.

Sarah Jane Adventures for 2 More Series'

The BBC Press Office has commissioned 2 more series' of The Sarah Jane Adventures. Series 4 will start this Autumn and series 5 will "go into production in 2011 for transmission later that year." You can read the press release below:

CBBC Controller Damian Kavanagh has commissioned two new series (24 x 30-minutes) of hugely successful Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures, which will see the intrepid investigative journalist and her gang of young sidekicks continue to enthral children for the foreseeable future.

Created by Russell T Davies, and featuring one of Doctor Who's most famous companions, Sarah Jane Smith, The Sarah Jane Adventures is made by BBC Cymru Wales and has been a huge hit on CBBC since its debut in 2007, with viewing figures continuing to grow year on year.

The fourth series, set to air this autumn, will again star Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane. Young actors Tommy Knight, Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra return as popular regulars Luke, Clyde and Rani.

The new adventures will feature the usual mixture of thrills, scares and fun with enemies old and new, including the terrors of the Nightmare Man, the sinister Shansheeth, the series' first visit to an alien world, and even a dangerous journey back into history.

The series will go into production in Cardiff later this month with series three producer Nikki Wilson stepping up alongside Russell T Davies as executive producer and new producer Brian Minchin joining the team.

Damian Kavanagh says: "We are thrilled to be making many more episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

"It is been a huge ratings and critical success on CBBC and we hope our viewers are going to be hooked on Sarah Jane's action-packed adventures for some time to come."

BBC Wales Head of English Language Programmes, Clare Hudson, says: "The idea for The Sarah Jane Adventures sprang from the success of Doctor Who and it has since rocketed in popularity in its own right, thanks to the vision, talent and hard work of the show's brilliant cast and crew."

The fifth series will go into production in 2011 for transmission later that year.

Writers on the fourth series include Phil Ford (also co-producer), Joseph Lidster, Rupert Laight, Gareth Roberts and Clayton Hickman.

The Sarah Jane Adventures is a BBC Cymru Wales/Children's BBC Production.
