New Doctor Who Web Series Coming, One Episode Each Day Next Week

The BBC have confirmed that they will be screening Asylum of the Daleks in the UK at 7.20pm on Saturday 1st of September. Do a little dance. Go on.

And now do another one because, actually, there are five whole minisodes to come between now and then.

Starting on Monday 27th August, a Bank Holiday here in the UK, Auntie is going to unveil a web series about the life of the Ponds called – what else? – Pond Life. It sounds like the Doctor appears too, as producer Caro Skinner is promising:

a beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny piece about the adventures the Ponds have been having with the Doctor since we last saw them on-screen.  It’s not long till the series itself will be back with a vengeance – but in the meantime, Pond Life is a truly heart-warming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor

This five part “mini-adventure” has been written by Chris Chibnall, not the most popular of Who scribes. But hey – it’s free. And it has Amy and Rory in it. And for all we know, it’s ging to be ‘beautiful, heartfelt, and wickedly funny.’

An omnibus edition is going to air on TV come September 1st, via the Red Button service. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it pop up on BBC HD either.

Here’s an actual video intro to the show:

And, finally… some silliness.
