What is Pond Life? Steven Moffat & Caro Skinner interviewed

From the Doctor Who Blog:

Pond Life is the new mini-adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy, Rory and some surprise familiar faces! It picks up the story of the Ponds and follows their lives in the way that only Doctor Who can, culminating in a cliff-hanger that leads us into Asylum of the Daleks.

Directed by Saul Metzstein (Dinosaurs on Spaceship/A Town Called Mercy), the first part of Pond Life will premiere on the BBC Doctor Who site at noon (UK time) on Monday (27 August). Part 2 – 5 will be released daily at noon throughout the rest of the week and the omnibus edition will be available online and on the BBC’s Red Button on Saturday, 1 September – the day that the new series returns with Asylum of the Daleks!

Pond Life’s writer, Chris Chibnall (42, The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood) commented, ‘It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives,’ and  Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, described it as ‘beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny… a truly heart-warming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor.’

In the video above, Executive Producers Steven Moffat and Caro Skinner discuss Pond Life and you can watch Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill introducing the mini-adventure now!

Cool!!

When you really stop and think about what Carl Sagan is saying, it’s really very cool.  I am literally hearing the voice of someone from another time.  And, I can (theoretically) do the same…speak to someone in the future.  

But wouldn’t we all agree that it would be so much more fun to go for a ride with The Doctor in the Tardis and “actually” meet them?  

In the meantime I’ll have to suffer with this world’s time machines… Books.
What a fun bookmark! How could anyone resist?  Depending on which Doctor you like, you can change it up… I can imagine making ones with Harry Potter characters as well!

I think this is amazing and wonder why we don’t spend more time reaching out into space… How extraordinary it would be to really experience things like we see in Doctor Who.  Well, maybe not the Daleks or Cybermen… But there is loads of other stuff that would be a ‘who’t to learn about…  Allons-y!!

Runners never really look happy.  I imagine I’m much the same.  And the truth is sometimes I’m not. But I’ve very rarely finished a run and not been pleased with my accomplishment.  I think most runners are just really deep in thought. Yeah! That’s sounds like a plausible explanation.
