(Welcome Facebook people… please tell us who has linked to us, because we’re gettng massive traffc and we’d like to say thanks. And you can see more Bleeding Cool Doctor Who coverage here.)

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will tomorrow be playing The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, described in their schedule as:

A musical celebration with the Doctor on the big screen and a host of live monsters including Daleks, Cybermen and The Silence invading the venue.

Those who attend and receive a program will see that the foreward has been written by Steven Moffat. In his typical style, he’s used this platform to tease the future a little.

Blogtor Who received this transcript:

Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary is coming. In Cardiff, we’re gearing up for the biggest, the best and the most ambitious season we’ve ever made. There will be shocks, surprises and heartbreak – the Doctor is about to say goodbye to his very best friends, Amy and Rory.

And then he’s about to say hello to someone very different – the Doctor is going to meet someone very new in the very last place he could ever have expected…

The TARDIS Swimming Pool? His bed? And what’s “very new” – a baby?

The program apparently used the phrase “heartbreaking farewell” repeatedly, in reference to the end of the Pond storyline. They at least want us to think that somebody is going to die.


Production on the new series is apparently due to kick off in just a few weeks. We’ll be keeping our ear to the ground as, chances are, the next month or three will see any number of teases, leaks and tantalising glimpses.

If you go to the Melbourne event tomorrow, do have a great time. And if you get a program, we’d love a full scan or a nice clear photo.
