article imageGQ magazine jumps the 'ray' gun with Doctor Who review

By Mathew Wace Peck     Mar 16, 2013 in Entertainment
GQ magazine appears to have jumped the gun, by posting online its review of the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who.
The 2013 season of Doctor Who is due to start at Easter, with Steven Moffat’s The Bells of Saint John, which is scheduled for the 30 March in the UK, US and Canada.
As is the norm, the press and other selected people were given a first-look last week, but any reporting has been embargoed till Monday, 18 March.
Someone at GQ, however, must have forgotten – either that or they themselves thought they’d travelled forward in time – because a review appeared on their website yesterday (Friday, 15 March), albeit briefly; so those fans who were not at the Doctor Who premiere but are eager to know what to expect this year had to be quick!
The dog that didn't bark!
An Internet search still teases, “What we learnt at today’s Doctor Who premiere of The Bells of St John [...] After he survived a close encounter with Guillermo Del Toro-esque sociopathic snowmen over the festive period, GQ were delighted to receive”. However, following the link to the GQ page in question, rather disappointingly, it announces: “SORRY! The page you requested couldn’t be found […]”
Helpfully, Digital Spy forum refers anyone who still can’t wait till Monday to Google cache.
Doctor Who returns to TV screens in the UK, US and Canada on Saturday, 30 March, Poland and South Africa on Sunday, 31 March, with other territories following shortly after. Throughout March and April, eight episodes will air, written by Neil Cross, Neil Gaiman, Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Stephen Thompson.
Meanwhile, according to combom, ahead of transmission of The Bells of Saint John, the BBC Red Button (Freeview Channel 301) will broadcast a prequel minisode – on Saturday, 23 March, at 5.15 p.m. “The Doctor takes a break on Earth, despondent that he can't find Clara,” the synopsis reads.
Later in the year, a number of specials will be broadcast, including Mark Gatiss’s Doctor Who origins' drama An Adventure in Space and Time, Moffat’s 50th-anniverasy special, which will be broadcast on Saturday, 23 November itself, and a Christmas special.
