Monday Morning News Round Up- April 21

Well, we might as well start this week with the big news or lack there of. Marco Polo was not announced.  This shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone, especially since most of those with source information had already started backpedaling in the previous weeks. So… Easter without Marco, what does that mean to the omnirumour? Check out my OmniMusings.

UWM

But don’t confuse no announcement with a boring, unexciting week. It was far from that. We had an Underwater Menace surprise via facebook that was quickly taken down, and then there was that picture of Phil Morris in Sierra Leonne that he tweeted. So all in all it was still a busy week for the omnirumour, even if, once again, there was nothing solid that came out of it.

Big News and No News in the Omnirumour!

We started the week out with nothing but bad news. Easter is off, they said. Maybe sometime in May or June. Hopefully. That led me to my poll, when do you think the next announcement will come. Haven’t voted yet? Come on over and add your voice. If you did vote, why not see what everyone else believes? So, we were prepared for a quiet few weeks before things might have picked up again. What we weren’t prepared for is T.I.E.A. to come out swinging!

So there you go, the news the rumours, the weird and the wild from the past seven days.

More on that Gatiss Episode- Spoilers

Ben Miller

Alright, so Steven Moffat just confirmed that Ben Miller will be appearing in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.

Here’s what Moffat had to say:

“Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it’s about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

So he’s going to be the bad guy. Now, if we are assuming that they are talking about the only Gatiss story that we have heard anything about so far, episode three, then what can we take from this? Previous reports state that the episode could be titled Robots of Sherwood and feature characters from the Robin Hood legend, so… Is Miller going to be a classic Robin Hood bad guy? Or an alien playing the part of one?
