Voyage of the Damned Buildup
The Press are having such fun with Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned, with not a word against it printed in the Christmas Day previews.
According to The Mirror, “It’s a corker” and with a trailer in the cinemas, on BBC digital channels and the web, as well as the wonderful set of advent gifts from the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site I would be very surprised if the “disaster movie in space” on Christmas Day doesn’t break previous Christmas Doctor Who viewing figures.
With an amazing supporting cast including: Bernard Cribbins (who once fought the Daleks in the 1966 movie Daleks’ Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.), Geoffrey Palmer (owner of two previous Doctor Who credits – The Mutants and more notoriously The Silurians), George Costigan (Rita, Sue & Bob Too, not for minors…), Clive Swift (Keeping Up Appearances), Debbie Chazen (The Smoking Room) and even newsreader Nicholas Witchell, I can’t see how it can go wrong.
The trailer gives us a taster of the excellent special effects in use, we’ve seen from our exclusive set of prop photos (more to come by the end of tomorrow!) that the general production values are very high, plus we get 1 hour and 10 minutes of Doctor Who starring David Tennant AND Kylie Minogue!
I’ve been waiting for this for months (alright, since The Sarah Jane Adventures finished…) and seeing the trailers, watching the Doctor, Astrid, the Bannakaffalatta (some sort of coffee-based drink…?) and the mysterious robotic angels is really getting the adrenalin running here at Kasterborous Towers.
