“It’s a CRACKer!”

We’re finally here!  There’s only a couple of hours left until The Big Bang, so why not be teased just a little bit, eh?

Doctor Who star Matt SmithMatt Smith, as a guest on This Morning on Friday, has given us all something – or should I say, someone – to look out for in the season finale:

“There’s an important character coming back, but I can’t say who,” he said. “But it is very significant – it’s a cracker!”

Let the last-minute speculating commence!  There are a variety of significant characters who could potentially come back; could it be Amy (who’s supposedly dead)?  Rory (who has only been back as an Auton)?  Jenny?  The Face of Boe?  Here’s hoping for a surprise appearance from Captain Jack Harkness!

But let’s not also forget the exhausting amount of work that was required to make this (possibly best-ever for nuWho) season possible!  Smith certainly isn’t:

“I watched [The Big Bang] and was quite emotional probably because it was the end of the series and we’d worked so hard and we’d got there. I watched it with Karen [Gillan] and we were like, ‘Woo hoo!'”

Brace yourselves; we’re about to fall back into Special-Episode-Anticipation Season, quite similar to what we felt for so long in late 2008 and 2009, and probably very few of us will stay sane as we wait for the Christmas special.  But news of it will trickle in, and is already doing so, as its production begins.  In fact, Matt Smith says,

“I’m going to read the Christmas episode this week!”

Which means that if you’re one of those people hoping to mug Matt in the middle of the street until he spills the beans on what’s going to happen this 25 December, you’ll have your first opportunity to do so within the next seven days.

The Big Bang booms very, very soon; a couple of hours from now, in fact, at 6:05 on BBC1 and BBC HD.  Matt Smith (the Bow Tie Man), Karen Gillan (the Carrot-Haired Scotswoman), Caitlin Blackwood (a younger Carrot-Haired Scotswoman), and Alex Kingston (Hello Sweetie!) will all be there… will you?

Looking Back

Still need something Whovian to do while you’re waiting for the big one?  Tell us what your favorite episode has been this season, and why!  The comment section below provides an excellent place to do it!  I’ll say mine right now: it’s The Eleventh Hour, the one that changed everything about Doctor Who as we knew it, apart from the fact that it’s about a time-travelling alien in a phone box who can change his face.  But everyone’s different, and there are plenty of top-notch stories to choose from!  So think hard, and let us know what you liked best!
