Trivia

When Jenna Coleman was announced as The Eleventh Doctor's new companion, the actress was falsely rumored to play the historic Egyptian queen Cleopatra. In Doctor Who: The Girl in the Fireplace (2006) Cleopatra is mentioned by Mickey Smith and in Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens (2010) River Song disguises herself as Cleopatra. The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble had encountered Cleopatra in the short story "The Lonely Computer" by Rupert Laight. See more »

Crazy Credits

On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes. See more »

Excellent
26 March 2005 | by EdzuncaSee all my reviews

I just cant understand why people are saying 'Rose' was just OK. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think that the new series excels itself compared to previous series e.g 6th doctor stories. I commend Russel T Davies for doing a fantastic job of propelling doctor who into the 21st century.

I pity the old doctor who fans who say 'oh its just not the same'and Eccleston is 'too different to be the doctor'. They are right! its not the same! Neither are we! We are living in a different century to the old episodes and many things have changed. Set in modern day I think the episode was more realistic and 10 times more enjoyable. So boo to the criticisms

Everyone I have spoken to had a whale of a time even many children cant wait for next week.Lets hope the rest of the series fails to disappoint us!

Congratulations BBC!!
