Doctor Who Series 8

After the headaches from battling the cyber-crowds for registration to San Diego Comic-Con, then surviving the absolute debacle known as Hotel-Apocalypse, and finally snagging your parking pass from those lovely people over at ACE Parking, we have finally reached that magical time of year when SDCC announcements start dropping like new Tupac albums after he “died”.  With a little over a month left until hundreds of thousands of out-of-towners descend upon the streets of San Diego as they make their way to Geek Mecca, the first Hall H panel has been revealed, thanks to BBC.  If you are a fan of Doctor Who (and how could you not be??), it looks like you will want to be one of the thousands sitting in Hall H on Thursday, July 9.

Seems I’m not the only one to think so. Some guy went and made a mashup combining Daredevil with the opening credits of two other popular crime dramas; Nightcourt and Law & Order: Criminal Intent(more…)
