Welcome to Centerpoint!

The other day I posted a very short and hopefully cryptic clue about something that would be appearing on this blog today. Well, here it is! Here is the first look at the Centerpoint team in all their glory.

Not only does this picture round off the first round of viral advertisement for Centerpoint but it also introduces the last of the characters to the team; a certain Mr Harkness. Now I know what you are thinking, "Is this just going to turn into Torchwood now?" Have no fear I can guarantee that it won't. Infact I can reveal that Jack will only be in the three part opening story and then he will be leaving the team.

Incase you couldn't find them I shall posting the images from the first round of viral advertising over the weekend, so be sure to check back for those.

In 5 days times something very special will come to Christel Films. I'm not going to tell you what but it will be VERY special. Let the countdown begin...

The Cardinal in all his (new) glory!

I was going to hide this new picture, but I decided against it and I am just going ahead and revealing it in full. Here is the Cardinal with a slightly new look from when you last saw him in Christel Doctor Who. The most intriguing thing about this picture is that the Cardinal is dressed in traditional time lord attire and stands in front of what appears to be a TARDIS console, hmmm...interesting.

Did you find them all?

This week there were 3 Centerpoint viral images hidden somewhere on the site. Have you found them all yet? If not then keep searching, they are quite well hidden (even if I do say so myself). This week I shall be adding a new image with another small hint about what you can expect from the series when it hits your computer screens in the final part of this year.

If you are really struggling to find the images then don't panic. I shall be posting all of the images on the blog at then end of the first stage of virals in about 2-3 weeks time.

Series 4 1st half Finished (well sort of)

I have tonight put the finishing touches to a very rough first draft of Christel Doctor Who Series 4, episode 7, which means in principle that I have now completed the first half of the series. Episode 7 is the mid series cliffhanger and let me tell you it is one hell of an episode. Even if I do say so myself. At the moment it is far too long and far too confusing but I already have ideas on how to cut it down and simplify it so I will get to work in the next few weeks.

The VERY exciting news however is, that this now means that I am at the moment ahead of my planned schedule. I had planned to have the writing finished before the end of April, and here I am on March 14th with it finished in first draft form. In turn, this means that I could now start shooting small pieces of test footage and begin filming some of the episodes. More news soon...

Have you found them yet?

The first part of the Centerpoint viral has now officially begun. There are now two pictures hidden somewhere on this blog. Good luck in finding them, and if/when you do, please don't spoil where they are for others. More will be added during the week.

Day of the Daleks Re-release

Here is the official re-release of the third 2009 special episode "Day of the Daleks". The episode has also been added to the specials page of the blog. I am hoping to be able to have the final special up and ready before the end of the month. In the meanwhile, enjoy episode 3.

Returning Charaters for Out of Time (Part 2)

After revealing earlier in the week that UNIT captain Orisa Magombo would be returning to star in "Out of Time" I can today confirm that the second returning character is none other than Mr Ralph Tunney.

Ralph Tunney was first seen in the series 2 opening episode Hearts of Stone and fell victim to the Weeping Angels touching him and sending him back through time. Ralph will not play a big part in this special episode but will have a worthwhile cameo.

Tune in next week for the third and final post of this mini-series which will reveal the main (returning?) character of the episode.

Centerpoint Page goes live....

As preperations for Centerpoint begin to pick up speed I have now launched an official page for the series. I can be found on the links at the top of the blog. At the moment it is pretty bare but it will soon be filling up with character bios, videos, photos and other interesting info.

Returning Charaters for Out of Time (Part 1)

The first of the 2012 Christel Doctor Who special "stories" will be released on April 15th this year and feature a character familiar to the vast majority of Doctor Who fans. Orisa Magombo and by extension, UNIT, will be making an appearance in the episode. Obviously I can't tell much about why Magombo is coming back but I can tell you that she is quite important to the overall plot of the episode.

However, as the title of the post suggest she is not the only character that is returning for this special episode. Later on in the week I shall reveal the second returning character, only this time it will be one from Christel canon and not mainstream Doctor Who Canon. Answers on a postcard(or the chatbox) as to who you think it will be.

Centerpoint Viral Campaign starts soon...

The Centerpoint viral ad campagin will officially start on Monday March 12th 2012. I have had a few websites offer to host images and videos for me, so thanks to those people, but I am still on the lookout for more sites to host the virals.

The first stage of the campaign will begin on Monday (12/3/12) and involve pictures being hidden somewhere on the blog that will not only reveal the characters identities but also tease at small parts of the storyline.

The second stage of the campaign will be an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) based on the series, which will again, tease at the minor details of the story and the settings.

Having completed the first drafts of 5 series 4 episodes I can tell you that in one of the first episodes of the series the Doctor will be told he resembles a Geography teacher.

I am also hoping to be able to release some exclusive first shots of the Doctor's new outfit for series 4 very soon. I will release more information next week.
