The day is finally upon us. We are celebrating the Doctor's fiftieth
anniversary and style. Welcome to the Blue Peter Doctor Who party. We
will be showing you how to make these epic Dalek cupcakes that you
can feast on with all your friends. That is happening here right now, on
today's very special Blue Peter. APPLAUSE How
are you? Welcome to the show. Let's make it official. Everybody. It's so
good to see you. Welcome to the Blue Peter Doctor Who party!
Of course, because of the party, it wouldn't be complete without all of
our friends here to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
That is what I am talking about. We've got a jam-packed show for you
today. We're going to bring to life the alien you designed on last
week's show. That's right. On Thursday, you sent all your funny,
imaginative, and creative designs in to make an alien. That was changed
into a sketch by our Dr Who story board artist. Keep watching,
because, later in the show, that sketch is going to come to life.
We would like to call him or her something else. We want a name. We
are a live show, so get in touch: Something
you've been getting excited about is our Doctor Who competition that we
launched on Thursday. All the details for that are on our website:
Make sure you
competition really is incredible. You get the chance to design a sonic
gadget for the crime-fighting trio in Victorian London. Whether you
want to include Strax, Madame Vastra or Jenny Flint, get involved. That
will be included next year, in 2014. We've probably got the biggest fan
in the studio right now to give us an update on the competition, it is
CBBC's Mr Chris Johnson! Thank you for having me. You're a
Doctor Who super fan? Yes, And you're on the judging panel for the
competition. How excited are you on a scale of one to ten? 11. Very
excited about this. It is a brilliant opportunity. To take part,
it is historical enough. If your gadget makes it into the show, you
have unlimited bragging rights to the end of time and beyond. And your
respect. Of course! In terms of your favourite sonic gadget of all time,
what would it be? There's been quite a few. I am a fan of Mis Foster's
sonic pen, which was in Partners in Crime. It has the features of a
sonic device and it is a pen. You stuff it in your pocket. It is
brilliant. It is a tough decision for the viewers. They've got to find
one gadget for one of the characters. They're different, are
not they? Very different. A few tips. Jenny gets stuck into the
missions, she goes under cover and stuff like that. So a gadget that
looks like an ordinary object, perhaps. Something she could carry
on her easily. So it can be disguised in her outfit? As for
Madame vase as for Madame Vastra she's a classy. Very elegant look.
As for Strax, no need to be subtle. He's the most bombastic character in
the show. He has two big fingers as well, so think about that. That is a
top tip there from the pro himself, Chris Johnson. It is a tough
decision, and it is yours at home. If you're struggling to decide who
you want to make your sonic gadget for, fear not, because here's here's
a guide to all the characters on Paternoster Row.
Madame Vastra is a lizard, she was in hibernation deep under the Earth.
The tube woke her up. That's how she and the Doctor met. She lives in
Victorian London with Jenny and Strax and has the nickname of The
Great Detective. Strax is a Sontaran, who is an enemy race.
Strax is one of the Doctor's am lies.
Strax is easily confused. Strax lives with Madame Vastra and Jenny
in the late 19th century. They fight crime, solve mysteries, and he has
become Madame Vastra's Butler. Jenny is a Cockney Victorian maid. I
don't know why you put up with me. She is married to Madame Vastra who
is the Silurian lizard. Jenny is the only human. Madame Vastra has taught
her all the sword fighting and the judo moves.
See you around, I shouldn't wonder. APPLAUSE
Every performance APPLAUSE
gets a round of applause here today. Let's talk about the rules here. It
is important you stick to them. It is one design for one character. The
closing date is 2 December at 12 noon. To give you a bit of a heads
up, head over to the website. All the terms and conditions are on
there. Stick to the rules. I love to be able to to go behind the scenes
of my favourite movies and TV shows, a cool thing to get that insight.
When I got the chance to go behind the scenes on the 50th anniversary
special, of course, I jumped at the chance. I jumped in the air, I was
that excited! Here's what happened when I had a very special trip to
London. So the fiftieth anniversary, what do
we know so far? Not a lot, really. We know Matt Smith is in it, and
David Tennant is back. And there is a mysterious dark Doctor, too. Back
in April, Trafalgar Square played host to the Doctor Who team when
they turned up to film a big scene for the 50th anniversary special.
The Doctor was hanging beneath a huge crane. I don't think they want
me to go the whole 90 feet which I want to do because I will get to see
all of London, and it will be cool. Matt had a harness, so he was hooked
underneath. I had to be belted and hooked into the TARDIS as well. It
was hard to keep this bit of the 50th anniversary secret because
large crowds up. What is filmed here is only a small part of what makes
it on screen. The rest is down to visual effects.
Okay, fine, the Blue Peter special effects are not that brilliant, but
that's why I am here! I am about to meet the visual effects team on
Doctor Who. This is where the special is put
into Doctor Who's special effects. This filmed the Dalek parliament
with thousands of Daleks when there were only ten there. They've helped
the Doctor ride a dinosaur on the spaceship.
Murray is the supervisor. Thanks for having us. A pleasure. This must be
the scene where the helicopter goes over with the Doctor clinging to the
TARDIS. We get a script, the story board from the director. You can see
here Nelson column is in the centre. We have the helicopter flying around
it. With the arrows on the story board we can tell which direction
the helicopter is to go in. This isn't a picture, this is the shot he
actually wants to see in very basic form? Yes. To realise the director's
vision of a TARDISing pulled across London, the first step is to build a
three D TARDIS. This is Neil, one of our animators. Neil makes the
graphics move realistically. This is like a CGI version of Matt Smith. He
is hanging out the bottom of the TARDIS because the shot is hundreds
of feet above the Thames. They can't put a real Matt Smith in there. We
animated him waving his arms around. You're effectively stop-motion
animation where you make a slight movement every frame? Yes. If I
wanted to have a go at this? Yes, of course you can.
So if you press S. That saves the position of the arm. Move
forwardfour frames, and then you move his arm back. And then you move
it on a few frames. And then you move back again. Move it back the
other way. I got out the Doctor's way. You've
animated a little wave. How long is the sequence? Three seconds long.
How long would it take you to animate this? It would take us about
two days to animate. Two days for something that small? Yes. It is
amazing. Once the something that small? Yes. It is
the final stage is to put the computer-generated elements together
with the actual footage shot on location, which is where Murray
comes in. We know this TARDIS lands on Trafalgar Square. How do you
combine computer-generated elements together with the footage shot on
location? We shot our helicopter. Then we shot our stuntman hanging
from the TARDIS. That is a real person? Yes, on a very big crane,
and then we put them all together. What I love about this, it is not
just one guy sitting at a computer, this is the effort of lots of
different people coming together with loads of different skills and
they can create something that looks so believable and amazing as that.
You're going to love this episode. Rather than watching it here, why
not watching it on your TV screens! APPLAUSE it
deserves the cheers. That clip you saw there is an exclusive preview of
tonight's episode. No-one had seen it until just then. Make sure you
watch the rest of the episode. It's amazing. Just as amazing as our big
bad wall full of Doctor Who stuff. You've been sending in so many
things Time Lord related. This is one of my favourites from Joseph. He
is from Burton upon Trent. He sent in the Doctor Who stamp with the
dates. My favourite has to be from Emma from county Derry. She has
drawn a Dalek laughing at Emma from county Derry. She has
one has been sent in from Alice in improvement poowy S. That could be
you and me? Yes. I Would love to be the new Doctor. It's not just the
board we can show you stuff on, we've got technology in the studio.
We have. If you missed the Blue Pete Doctor Who Special, you can catch up
on the BBC iPlayer. If you're watching on Thursday, I interviewed
Jenna Coleman. There is another interview on the website which you
haven't seen on the show. It is all unseen footage. Go and check it out.
When you found out I was getting to meet the Doctor, Matt Smith in the
TARDIS, over TARDIS, over 1,700 of you asked me questions. I am here on
the set of Doctor Who in Cardiff. Fans know this is the entrance to
the TARDIS. I am going to meet Matt Smith!
It's called the TARDIS. It can travel anywhere in time and space.
And it is mine. Hello. Lovely to meet you. Lovely to meet you. How
are you? I am very excited to be here. I've been given my new Blue
Peter badge because I lost my old one because I am an idiot. What is
it actually like to be the Doctor? I don't know, really. It's sort of
magic! What is a day in the office. I wake up about half-past six, I get
to work at seven, I have some breakfast at quarter-past seven. Go
into make-up and costume, and then we shoot through until one, have
your lunch, one until two, and then you shoot through until 7 o'clock.
That is it. If you're working, doing a night shoot, you might start that
day at 7 o'clock in the evening and work until
day at 7 o'clock in the evening and You might be out in
day at 7 o'clock in the evening and might be in the TARDIS playing with
all the stuff. It is a mad, varied life.
I know, dinosaurs! On a spaceship! To celebrate the fiftieth
anniversary of Doctor Who, we told the viewers we would be interviewing
you, and we asked them the questions they would most like to ask you.
Wow. Up for answering them? Hit me. What has been your favourite Doctor
Who adventure and why? Christmas Carol was great, and Vincent and the
Doctor, and the 11th hour, because I think it's a brilliant piece of
writing. What is your favourite Doctor Who monster? Good question.
My favourite Doctor Who monster is the whooping angel. Crimson super
ladybird says what scene was the most emotional or difficult to film?
I think one of the most emotional was when Carol and Arthur left, and
we were in Manhattan, and we were in a cold graveyard. It was just a very
difficult day shooting. Please, come back into the TARDIS.
It was emotional because it was Karen's last stand, and she's a good
friend, and seeing her go was sad. If you could travel anywhere in the
TARDIS, where would you go, and why? I would go and pick up Frank
Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, watch dinosaurs, and sit in those boats in
the ocean, and see mad, huge deign Sawyer fish, and then
the ocean, and see mad, huge deign England watch the World Cup in 1966.
What about your best tips to be an actor or actress? Maybe to apply for
the National Youth Theatre. That's a good platform. They give you a good
environment to practise and learn, and be inventive and express
yourself. Read as many plays as you can. Watch as many good actors as
you can. Practise as much as you can. Go and make things with your
friends. It is practise, practise, practise. It is like being a great
sportsman - the more you practise, the better you get. What is the
highlight of being the 11th Doctor? The friends I've made at work
because we have a wonderful crew, and I've made friends for life. I
think that's a wonderful thing to take away from any experience.
Fantastic. Thank you very much, it's been an
absolute pleasure. Thanks for having me on Blue Peter. To everyone at
home, enjoy Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. It's going to be a
belter! I am going to head off home now because ultimately I need - it's
a need - it's weeping angel. It means I can't blink!
Don't worry, nobody was hurt. Favourite Doctor? David Tennant.
Matt Smith. Say hello to Poppy, Jack, Sarah and will. High five,
ten, two, one! It is a Doctor Who make. We will be
making a big chocolatey treat which will send you mad. It's called a
extermi-bake. No-one First thing you need to sort out are
your ingredients. You need big muffins, and some little cakes, like
the sort of cupcake things that you can get. This stuff is called butter
icing. We've got chocolate butter icing because it is rich in
chocolate and we like it a lot. You need big large chocolate buttons,
chocolate tea cakes, and some more butter icing. I will talk you
through the decorating when we get there. So you need to take your big
muffins, and you want to cut the tops off. Poppy, do you want to do
this for me? Nice and carefully. You want to get a nice flat edge and
turn it upside-down. That's going to give us the bottom of the Dalek. You
need this, it is the little cupcake. That's going to go on top. It is
going to be upside-down to make the right shape. This is where the
butter icing comes in handy. It's like the glue, you can eat it.
Spread that on top of your muffin. Spread another one on top of it like
that. Make as much mess as you like. We're not tidying up. The idea is to
put some chocolate around the outside of it too so it looks like
this. Jack, you know what you're doing because you can see chocolate
and you're going for it like a cat goes for cheese. Take your buttons -
cats like cheese. Right? You know what you're doing. It is dead easy
because you've got a Dalek for reference here in the studio. This
is the head part. You need to make it in layers like this. If you don't
have your Dalek at home, you can watch the show, and we will show you
how to do it. Stick your button on top of that. You're being very
delicate, Jack. You can make the butter cream from scratch if you
want to, but we are cheating because it is quicker.
You can also make your own cakes, but we've cheated there as well, but
you can do whatever you want. You know how creative you are. It's a
proper stack. You've know how creative you are. It's a
cake on top. Beautiful. Now it is time to decorate. There's
cake on top. Beautiful. Now it is shop. There is a Dalek that you can
help to decorate. Let's talk about your autograph you got from David
Tennant. How did you get that? I sent him a letter, and then he gave
me an autograph back. That's pretty amazing, isn't it? Yes. Did you give
him money! No, just sent it! Doctors are so nice! If you're looking for
tips and ideas what to do with the decoration, do it like a Dalek: you
can do a row of four. We're next going to look the a the
most feared weapon - the plungers. You need tin foil, cocktail sticks.
Wrap them in tin foil. You've got little marshmallows that you get on
coffee sometimes, and we've got these jelly sweets as well. Those
are for the beacons on top. Someone thought they were ears! They get
stuck on with the butter cream once they've been stuck into the Daleks.
How are you going? Good. If you do make one, you can send us a picture.
That would be lovely. Or send us the cake! Are we not allowed to do that!
Please, send me cake. I want cake! How are we doing? It's dead simple
but really good fun as well. What I find hard is not eating the
chocolate. I am being so controlled right now. That's what I came here
for - the eating part! All the details Mr On the website. You've
smashed it out the park. Yes, you have indeed. And, thank you guys,
for coming in. You've been awesome today, but Doctor Who is actually
anywhere in the world. It is those kinds of surprised faces which is
why I told you. It is fans from Salford to Singapore, so the 50th
anniversary episode is a pretty big deal. Check this out.
Since 1963, for a whopping 50 years, Doctor Who has filled the hearts and
screens of the nation. It is not just the UK who will be watching the
special anniversary episode. The rest of the world is waiting to
watch too. The The Day of the Doctor will
transmit to 80 countries at exactly the same time. Doctor Who began its
quest to take over the world in 1964 when New Zealand became the first
country outside of the UK to show the first series. Earlier this year,
all the way over in Africa, nine Doctor Who episodes thought to be
missing forever from the BBC archives were found in a Nigerian TV
station. At one point, over 100 episodes were missing from the BBC
archives, and, in 2006, Blue Peter even made an appeal to help find the
missing tapes. If you can find one, we will be sending you a life-sized
Dalek of your very own. Very scary, but very cool. Good luck with the
search. In 1996, Doctor Who stormed our
screens with the new Doctor and a TV movie. Produced and filmed in
Canada, this was the first Doctor Who production made completely
outside of the UK. Australia had a key role in the
origins of Doctor Who. The iconic Doctor theme music was written by an
Australian musician, Ron Grainer. Furthermore, in 1967, Doctor Who
televised its one and only episode with an Australian setting, the
Enemy of the World. So, when you're hiding behind your cushions watching
The Day of the Doctor, it's quite likely the rest of
too. I love that! That is why it is the
longest running TV sci-fi series. Now time for an exciting part,
because if you cast your minds back to Thursday, you remember we asked
you to get in touch and give us your funny, imaginative and creative
ideas to make your very own unique alien. Then a storey board artist
changed your ideas into a sketch. You're going to get to see that
alien come to life in the Blue Peter studio. For this, the fiftieth
anniversary Special, we have our own Blue Peter alien. Welcome to the
studio! Look at that! Really, really scary.
I like how big it is. Look at the seven eyes on its head. It's got the
horns that you asked for, it's got a lot of fluff. I like it. This is
something you designed. If you got in touch and put your ideas forward,
and your idea was used, you will see your name scrolling on the bottom of
the screen. Thank you to Sean Williams our storey board artist who
made some of this possible with all the ideas, and to Katy because she
made this costume in 24 hours. Unbelievable. Thank you to all of
you getting at home making this possible. We couldn't have done it
without you. Time flies when you're having fun. Especially when you've
got a TARDIS. Can I keep the TARDIS? No! Now, it is almost time for the
end of the show, but before we do, we have time to read some of your
e-mails and comments you've been sending in. At the beginning you to
tell us what would your alien be called and where would it be froould
it be from? "Static lemon". It should be called the Watcher
it be from? "Static lemon". It Planet Evilius. Is
it be from? "Static lemon". It name? Yes, seven eyes! Okay, Indigo
Blowing Potato. The Looker, because of its eyes. Then says I think it
should be a marsh-up of Barney, Lindsey, and Radzy's names, so Peter
remember it's a Blue Peter alien, so it is Barladzy!
One thing I thought when I saw it was Barlazy. I think it should be
called Zanfrak It should be called Zappatron. Apparently, that is a
small town on the planet Paintol. And then Bull Rinks from one of
Jupiter's Moons. Blue Peter viewers are on the money today. That is all
we've got time for today. However, the Doctor Who episode is at 7.50
tonight on BBC one Please be there, watch it. It is going to be awesome,
coming up on next week's show, here it is. . We've got the War Horse
puppet in the studio. You love her, we love her, everybody loves her, it
is Shelley the tortoise going into hibernation, if you can catch her.
Find out what happened when I took part in a power boat film. Yes,
you've heard of jet boat Barney on the game, this is real jet boat
Barney. We pushed the boat out with this one! We will be back here at
normal on Thursday at 5.30. Bye-bye! Hi guys, Jenny here with the
headlines this Saturday. And Dr
