Hello. I’m Jonathan Woss

26th March 2010 • Blog Post by Jonathan Capps •

Oooh, it’s all go.  As we approach the final week before the broadcast, shit’s really gonna start to get real, starting with the obligatory appearance on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross by The New Guy, tonight.  If you think you can sit through Ross constantly mentioning his penis then this will be well worth a look, especially since Matt Smith seems to be an excellent interviewee, and we’ll be getting a clip from Whithouse’s Vampires of Venice!

In other news, the BBC’s Doctor Who site has had a very sexy redesign, to bring it more into line with the BBC’s standard (and excellent) layout.  It’s now much easier to browse around and you will no longer find yourself getting so frustrated you want to smash the designer to pieces with a clay replica of Tim Berners-Lee’s cock.  I really must do an article about all the various iterations of that site over the years.

In other other news, that 1 minute clip of The Eleventh Hour is going to show up on TEH RED BUTTONS from 18:25.  Seb will be abstaining but I’ll probably give it a good watch and post up about it over the weekend, along with every other two-bit Doctor Who blogger in the entire Universe.  Have a nice weekend, everyone, and try not to have bad dreams about cocks, clay-replica or otherwise.

Jonathan Capps‘ name translates in the old Draconian tongue as “The Oncoming Storm”. Curiously enough, when spelled out backwards, it translates in Kaled as “Gobby Northerner Who Likes Sandwiches”.

    Tomorrow.

    “Find out here on Saturday, 27th March at 18.25.”

    you will no longer find yourself getting so frustrated you want to smash the designer to pieces with a clay replica of Tim Berners-Lee’s cock.

    But I enjoyed doing that.

    > Tomorrow.

    Yeah, whatevs.

    I ended up not paying too much attention to the second half of the clip shown as I was too busy laughing at the Doctor’s library card. Brilliant.

    All my inner (!) fanboy could do was *squee* at the Library card.

    Immediately compiled a DVD containing all the assorted clips, trailers and promos.

    I really need to get out.

    Oh, yes, that was lovely. Matt once again coming across very well, but that new trailer + the ViV clip were hugely exciting. It’s probably the episode I’m least looking forward to and the Vampires themselves look a bit pants, but Smith’s dialogue and performance just seem… well, perfect. “Tell me all your plans! … one day that’ll work”.

  7. I did a squee. Loved everything about the trailer – especially the thumbs-up from Karen Gillan and the tagline “It’s about time”.

    Although The First Minute is going to be on BBCi from 6.25pm, according to assorted listings (notably the Radio Times) list it as starting at 8.10pm. Maybe that’s just because we’ve only got Freeview and not satellite.

    That didn’t make as much sense as I hoped. You know what I mean.

    I’m pretty sure you meant to say “sexy”.

    You can see it, all 42 seconds of it, on the BBC website now.

    It is, shall we say, a tad slight…

    Indeed. Very good, but after the build up (I mean – a countdown clock?!), it was somewhat anticlimactic.

    Currently listening to Delia Derbyshire Documentary on Radio 4. Very good.
