New Doctor Who Promo Trailer for Series 31 with Matt Smith

The new trailer promo for the first series of the 11th Doctor starring Matt Smith, series 31, has been released and it continues with the "spin cycle of doom" theme we saw with the publicity image released earlier this week. They do announce "Easter" as the start of the new series at the end of the promo. No, you don't need special glasses to see this, this version is not in 3D.

First Three Episode Titles for Series 31

The first three episode titles of Series 31 (2010 series) has been revealed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine according to a story by Digital Spy today. 

Those who may consider episode titles as spoilers, read no further.

The first episode featuring the 11th Doctor is appropriately named 'The Eleventh Hour' followed by the episode, 'The Beast Below.' Both are written by series executive producer and lead writer, Steven Moffat.

The third episode is titled 'Victory of the Daleks' written by Mark Gatiss (writer of the 9th Doctor story, 'Unquiet Dead' and actor in the title role in the 10th Doctor episode, 'The Lazarus Experiment').

Bill Nighy in Doctor Who

Bill NighyAs we tweeted a couple days ago, Bill Nighy (Slartibartfast in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)) is to guest star in an episode of Doctor Who according to Digital Spy.

He is playing the part of a curator of an exhibition of Vincent van Gogh. It is episode 10 in Series 31, written by Richard Curtis (The Black Adder, Mr. Bean). 

Digital Spy reports that a 'set insider' told them, "It was a real coup to get Bill Nighy in Doctor Who, especially in Richard Curtis's amazing episode. Bill plays a van Gogh expert with some similar fashion choices to The Doctor himself."

It is said that this story is to take place in 19th century France as well as present day.

Steven Moffat says it is Series 31 or 1, what will you be calling the 2010 Doctor Who series with Matt Smith?

It's Series 31 or 1, not 5 says Steven Moffat

In a recent DWIN blog post, it quotes Steven Moffat, new series Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who speaking of the upcoming series for the year 2010 (Matt Smith's first series as the 11th Doctor) in the latest issue of Doctor Who Monthly magazine:

"It’s Series Thirty-One of Doctor Who, and it's Series One of Matt Smith's Doctor, Those are both real numbers. I submit that 'Series Five of Doctor Who' means absolutely nothing unless you really believe that Matt Smith is the third Doctor. Everyone knows he's the Eleventh Doctor so that means it’s definitely not 'Series Five'. Whichever number you choose, 'Series Five' is the one that's flawed."

"'Series One' is an exciting sentence. 'Series Thirty-One' is an awe-inspiring sentence. 'Series Five' is a boring sentence - and also a complete lie."

This One Goes to Eleven. On Tap for and Shedding Light on Some Changes for Doctor Who.

Now that the end time has come for David Tennant as the Doctor, or rather, The End of Time, there is a new Doctor in the house, or rather TARDIS… Welcome, Matt Smith.

Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor

It is not only a change of Doctors, but with Steven Moffat taking the helm of the series as the new executive producer and lead writer, it is a whole new era for Doctor Who. Expect changes across the board to reflect it. 

We have already seen the new logo(s) for the series, the new Doctor debuted in the most recent special, The End of Time, Part 2. Doctor Who Monthly magazine is sporting an updated look, and we expect the same with the BBC Doctor Who website soon as well.
