Dorium Maldovar: Alive?

Lots of lovely news has appeared on website i09 this week, including some cheeky photos and titbits for this year’s season finale of Doctor Who: The Wedding Of River Song!

Thor 2, Captain America 2, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers all get a mention as well as information on the new series of The Walking Dead (yay!), Game of Thrones and Prometheus (the new Alien prequel by Ridley Scott).

But that’s a mere detail for you; you want to know about this year’s epic finish for the Eleventh Doctor, don’t you?

Will he die?

Is this really it for our beloved Time Lord?

Since the information comes from the Radio Times, it’s all very hush-hush, as it should be, but there are some new and intriguing photos for you to have a look at as well as some words of excitement from Simon Fisher-Becker who returns in the episode as the wonderful Dorium Maldovar and the good news is that he has got his head back! The actor revealed:

“Of course the question I keep being asked is how do I come back, because I lost my head in Episode 7. The various ideas that fans have had has been fascinating! What I can say is that my entire dialogue is with the Doctor.

“Originally, after I’d lost my head, I thought that was it for Dorium, unless they go backwards in time. I certainly didn’t expect to come back so soon. When I saw the script I was bouncing around like Tigger!”

Fans of the television series Angel may remember a demon called Lorne who had his head cut off and was thought dead only for it to be revealed that his kind can easily survive that and re-attach their heads no problem at all. Maybe that’ll be the solution, you’ll just have to wait and see!

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    He would be a great companion. Wheeling and dealing with the Doctor never quite able to trust him and being led into all kinds of mischief…..
