Matt Smith has revealed that we’ll see a different side to the Eleventh Doctor in next month’s Christmas Special.

Chatting on Steve Wright in the Afternoon this week the actor teased that his character is still coming to terms with losing Amy and Rory in The Angels Take Manhattan. “It is set in Victorian England,” he said. “We meet a Doctor who has been profoundly changed by losing the Ponds. Into his life walks Jenna-Louise Coleman’s character, and off they go on new adventures!”

He added that he continues to be surprised by Steven Moffat’s writing, explaining: “He is a complete genius, he really is. I just read Episode 1 of the next series and there’s some brilliant ideas. There is a moment in it involving two wheels. It is just him being brilliant.”

A preview of the “magic” festive ep will be shown during Children in Need next Friday.

Tune in for the momentous occasion on BBC One at 7:20pm, and we’ll be discussing all the heartbreak from 8:05pm – something tells us there will be lots to say!

Tomorrow night we’ll be saying goodbye to the Ponds, but before they pop off, we have been taking a fond look back at their most memorable moments – as voted for by you!

Taking the title of the penultimate ultimate best bit is one of their more iconic scenes. This cliffhanger ending to A Good Man Goes to War (2011) put to rest years of speculation surrounding River Song’s true identity, and at the same time opened up a whole new can of worms about who – or what – she was. Typical Steven Moffat then, really.

The countdown continues tomorrow! The Angels Take Manhattan on Saturday

This weekend we’ll be bidding a very tearful farewell to Amy and Rory, but we don’t want to get all bogged down in angst just yet, and we’re sure you don’t either!

If you didn’t know already at WhovianNet we love love LOVE nostalgia (see our many Remember When discussions for more), so we’re spending the Ponds’ final days looking back at their most iconic scenes for which they’ll be remembered. Your votes have helped us determine their Top 5 Moments – so let’s get this show on the road! What’s in at #5?

Well, kicking off the proceedings is this memorable moment from the two-part US story, which set the bar for last year’s epic series. In Day of the Moon, Amy was kidnapped by the Silence – leaving it down to the Doctor and Rory to rush to her aid. She could still communicate to them via her nanorecorder, but which of her boys was she calling for…?

Earlier tonight we were cubed to The Power of Three but next week we’ll be heartbroken to the power of infinity.

It’s time to look ahead to the moment Amy and Rory’s fans have been dreading. In next Saturday’s story, The Angels Take Manhattan, it is the parting of the ways for the Doc and the Ponds. It looks set to be a humdinger of an exit for them though – filmed in New York, it’ll feature the return of the Weeping Angels, and River Song is also back as “the queen of mischief”. And we expect nothing less!

The Angels will take Manhattan on Saturday 29th September at 7:20pm on BBC One…

As the finale of this year’s series of Doctor Who approaches (already!?), it means it’s almost time to face another end.

They’ve been keeping the Doctor on his toes since 2010, but after all the cracks, deaths and doppelgangers, it is hard to believe that now just two episodes of the Pond era remain.

After their penultimate story airs on Saturday, we’ll be faced with a long week of anticipation as we prepare for their final outing in the long-awaited The Angels Take Manhattan

…but we’ll be here to make those 7 days a tad more bearable, as we plan to spend their final week reliving some of the highs and lows (but mostly the highs) of their turbulent – but generally superb – time in the TARDIS. And we need your help to get things started!

So, to get the ball rolling, please share all your favourite Amy and Rory moments in the comments. It can be a particular scene or a quote, a specific episode – anything at all from their tenure that sticks out in your mind. We will pick a handful of your suggestions and open up a poll straight after The Power of Three on Saturday night to determine their Top 5 moments, all of which we’ll feature on the site over the course of next week.

You can also tweet us your best memories @WhovianNet. Don’t let yours be forgotten!

John McKay’s predicted that Karen Gillan’s acting career will keep blossoming for many years to come, taking her all the way to Hollywood.

The director worked alongside the actress on the BBC Four drama, We’ll Take Manhattan, which will air next week, and they will work together again on Not Another Happy Ending, the new independent comedy film in which she will play a beautiful and eccentric writer. He has told the Daily Record that she’s got what it takes to go far in the industry.

“She is not just a small screen star, she is a big screen star,” he said. “She really is one of Scotland’s greatest talents and I’m sure she can go all the way. She’s got it.”

Karen will be leaving her role as Amy in Doctor Who in Series 7, airing in the autumn.
