The following clip was just released from the BBC. It was an un-shot scene from The Angels Take Manhattan by Chris Chibnall. Complete with storyboard images and narrated by Rory (Arthur Darvill)himself. Find out what happened to Brian Williams after Amy and Rory disappeared!

 I really wish this had been shot, especially since I loved Rory's dad Brian since the moment he hit the screen. It did bring some closure and it was nice to have Arthur Darvill narrate the scene. I will miss the Ponds! :)

Grandview Theatre Special!

My, do we have a treat in store for you this Saturday! We have one week to fill in, and so have come up with a unique programme.

Join us at the Grandview Theatre at the normal time of 9pm, for 3 classic charity specials from Doctor Who!

Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death (1999 Red Nose Day Special) starring Rowan Atkinson, Jonathan Pryce, Hugh Grant, Richard E. Grant, Joanna Lumley, Jim Broadbent, and Julia Sawalha. written by current series producer Steven Moffat.

Dimensions in Time (Children in Need 1993 Special) starring all the surviving Doctors, and many companions, and enemies from the original series.
A Fix with Sontarans (Jim'll Fix It Special) a Colin Baker adventure, also starring Janet Fielding as Tegan.

These three have never aired in the US, and two have not been released on DVD.

See you there at 9pm!
