FIRST LOOK: The Spoonheads

The latest promotional image from Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2 has revealed the new "nemesis", The Spoonheads - click on the pic for a bigger version.

This new villain will appear in the first episode, The Bells of St John which will air on March 30 on BBC One, BBC America and SPACE whilst Poland and South Africa will receive it the following day. The synopsis for the first Steven Moffat story of 2013 reads:

"Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks, The Shard and Westminster Bridge, the episode will also establish a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who will battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi."

As Blogtor revealed back in November, The Bells of St John stars actress Celia Imrie (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) and you can watch Matt Smith talk about the episode HERE.

I wish they'd make some better looking robots. The Handbots looked pretty good but this one seems to be blank just like them. Still the Ice Warriors look great!

I can't be the only one who reckons this is gonna be like War Machines Part 2, and that this "monster in the WiFi" is the new WOTAN?

I have to admit that lower body is reminding me of the Quarks..and I have absolutely no problems with that.

The bodies remind me a lot of the quarks, and I'm absolutely OK with that.

Spoonheads? Spoonheads! Good grief.... How can we possibly speak of Doctor Who with pride with a villain called the spoon heads!?

I liked the idea that the monster in the Wi-Fi might actually BE Wotan, which survived its destruction in 1966 by swiftly tranferring its intelligence to another computer elsewhere, and has been lurking around the internet for decades!

Hmmm, the more I think about the idea, the more I like it ... Especially as there's a link with a theme that's running through the show in its 50th anniversary year ... in that Wotan was the first (apart from the Doctor hinself) to ask the question "Doctor Who?"

Hmm. May be consulting my lawyers as aliens called the Spoonheads have featured my House of Fun series of children's novels (eg Stinky Finger's House of Fun) for many years. May not be as well known as Dr Who but have sold over 60,000. Now everyone's going to think it's me who's copied them, and to make things worse I'm a Cardiff author!
