Visiting Venice

Doctor Who - Vampires of Venice stars Karen Gillan as Amy PondThe BBC’s Official Doctor Who site continued its superb coverage of the new series this week with features that could quite easily be described as Vampires of Venice “extras”.

There are links to many BBC resources on the wondrous, historical city of Venice (including Francesco’s Venice, the documentary series profiling growth of Venice, presented by historian Francesco da Mosto), as well as a raft of video clips including the Step Back in Time feature which this week sees the Fourth Doctor recalling an event featuring ancient vampires and Time Lords (of course, we beat them to it with The Vampire Situation)

In the new Monster File, River Song shares shares knowledge of vampires and vampire-like creatures from her famous diary – alternatively watch Rory Williams actor Arthur Darvill discuss his character’s relationship with the unusual Amy Pond.

Finally, Amy Pond actress Karen Gillan interviewed her co-star Matt Smith as one of the extras – and then they swapped around for Matt to interview Karen – all good fun!
